I just bought the machine today when the seller sold it to me she worked it fine in front of me wen I got home set it up and cleans it the bobbin stoped picking up the thread can some1 help


Be sure you are using a brand new needle. Check that you have the top thread and bobbin case threaded correctly. If this fails, the machine may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing. You can watch the needle in action and possibly see why the two are not connecting. You can take it for service if you don't feel comfortable trying to repair yourself.

My viking emerald 118 machine just started breaking needles and the bobbin thread will not hold. YOu can pull the bobbin stitch out by pulling the thread.


Check the upper tension by lowering the presser foot and pulling on the thread through the needle. You should feel resistance. If not, take a stiff brush and clean out the tension disks/dials removing any loose threads or lint. If upper tension is ok, check bobbin tension by pulling thread through needle plate opening. You should feel resistance. If not, remove bobbin case and brush any loose threads or lint from the case, especially in the tension spring where the thread is snapped into place. You may need to use a sharp needle to dig in between the spring but be careful that you don't damage it.

so, the belt adjustment screw is stuck? loosening+ tightening the belt is an abnormal requirement unless the previous owner messed with it. the belt should be neither too loose or tight. both conditions will mess up sewing. this is where experience with a variety of machines comes in handy. i can tell by the feel of the belt. it should be firm. a displacement of around 3/4" is a general guide when lightly pulling it toward the front of the machine(toward you.) belt tension, upper thread tension, and bobbin race tension are difficult subjects for those not used to sewing. very important also to use the correct needle for each project. what needle size+point did u use for sewing velcro?

How to do darning with allure usha sewing Machine


I do not know what machine make and model this is.

But I darn the following way.

Iron onto the back of the hole/rip a piece of iron on mender in a similar colour and weight to your garment, allow just a centimetre extra around the rip. Try to bring the edges as close together and neatly as possible before ironing to attach the patch behind.

Now set the machine to a three step zig zag stitch, stitch width to the maximum and turn stitch length down to about .8 or so. Now sew over the rip/tear area fillling in the damaged area reversing back and forwards to cover the damage and a good margin around it. I use a colour matched thread if I can to make the stitching less obvious.

Done!

Just bought a used model singer 6233 need to know where foot pedal plugs in


The Singer 6233 was one of the models that briefly were made using air-powered foot controls. So you aren't looking for a traditional electrical connection. Instead, your pedal cord's female end will connect onto a black male nipple, that sticks out on the right side of the machine (the side with the handwheel). Just push it on until it feels snug.

Bought used--trying it out---top stitching is


Check to make sure that the thread running between the tension disks. A quick check is to lower the presser foot and then pull on the top thread. If you do not feel any tension, then it may not be ran in between the disks. Also, check to see if your bobbin is inserted correctly going counter-clockwise. This can cause the "loose" loops and thread jams in the bobbin casing.

PLEASE GIVE ME THE PRODUCT # FOR BOBBINS FOR WHITE MACHINE MODEL # 2037. THANK YOU


Rebecca, I don't know if you ever received a solution, but after my experience with my White 2038, I would advise you to do exactly what you said. "Throw it out". I've struggled for a week with a new machine, found parts missing after opening the box and generally feel ripped off. I am throwing mine out! I purchased a Singer yesterday and it is sewing beautifully with no problems.

Good luck.

on the backside of your free arm there is a small lever which can be moved to lower the feed dogs.
When you want them back up move the lever the other way.NOTE!!
They will not go up until the machine has made one revolution.
