Will the shuttle lock in place without a bobbin inside?  If it does, look for thread in there, wrong bobbin, etc.  If it doesn't, maybe the shuttle is bent?  Really hard to tell without seeing it...  Hope this helps.

Worked great until the needle broke and now the bobbin thread bunches up


Hello

Clean out the bobbin area if there are any thread tangles there.

If the bobbin does not fit snugly into the bobbin case, then get new bobbins. You need class A or 15 and they do not cost very much. Make sure they are plastic and not metal.

Refer to the maintenance section of the manual - see the configuration of the bobbin case and shuttle race? The bobbin case as an extending arm and the race a notch. When inserting the bobbin case into the shuttle, turn the handwheel so the needle is at it's highest position. Then lift the lever on the back of the bobbin case and insert the cast into the shuttle, arm pointing straight up toward the bed of the sewing machine.

Now thread the machine with the presser foot up - always - and see if the tangling stops.


There should be a tension setting for your bobbin thread, as well as your top thread. It sounds to me like your bobbin tension setting is not in sync with your top thread.

most common solution to this is to remove the top thread completely from machine and re thread it with the presser foot UP not down. This will allow the top thread to engage properly in the top tension disc

Thread in bobbin keeps getting caught. I'm doing something wrong putting it in.


Hello

The bobbin case is not properly installed.

Remove the bobbin case and make sure the thread from the bobbin is feeding from the spool in a clock wise direction and through the guide on the side of the bobbin case.

Raise the needle to it's highest position and this will move the shuttle to it's proper position.

Lift the lever on the back of the bobbin case, with the arm on the case pointing toward the ceiling and slip into the shuttle.

Bend your head down and you will see the shuttle has a slot for the arm to fit into.

Once you get the feel for this you will not have to bend down for a bird's eye view!

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up. Make sure the threading sequence is correct and the thread has not slipped out of the take up lever.

Hold onto the top thead end and lower then raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread. Pull both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

You should now be able to sew without any issues.

You can get a manual from Brother (free download). Refer to the maintenance section for cleaning and removal of the shuttle parts for lubrication, if required for the model you are using.

I am sewing scout badges on a uniform and when I sew there is a bunch of needle thread bunched up on the bottom (the top looks fine). And the needle thread gets all caught up around the bobbin.

When you forget to lift the presser foot before threading the machine, the tension control does not open to capture the thread. Then when you begin to sew, the top thread has no tension, and the bobbin thread, which does have tension, pulls the top thread to the bottom in messy loops.

Bobin will not thread up..does not turn


Refer to the manual for removing the bobbin case and race/shuttle. Clean the area. Read the instructions to be sure the race/shuttle is properly reinstalled.

If the bobbin remains jammed, a service tech will need to look at it.

I need to know how to clean and oil the machine


From the Sears Kenmore manual:
Using a small brush, remove the lint that accumulates in the shuttle area and around the feed dogs.
To Clean the Shuttle Area:
  1. This area must be kept free of dust, lint and occasional tangled thread. Raise the needle bar to its highest point and remove the bobbin case.
  2. Push levers of shuttle race aside and lift shuttle race cover and shuttle out.
  3. Clean the shuttle race with a small brush.
  4. Put a drop of oil on the center pin of the shuttle and shuttle race.

The machine keeps locking up. i have cleaned the bobbin and hook area. there was not much lint


if your machine has a front loading bobbin case, remove it and then remove the shuttle which the bobbin case fits into. most often there is thread or lint caught in the shuttle race preventing the shuttle from turning (it only needs a tiny piece of thread).

if you have done this check any gear meshing to ensure no lint or thread has been caught in the teeth of the gears.

if the machine sews ok and locks up after a few stitches then it sounds like needle threading or tension causing the problem. re-thread the machine and ensure there is sufficient needle thread tension to bend the needle a little when presser foot is down and thread is pulled through needle.

goodluck,

scott.

I pulled out the lubricating strip under the bobbin



Bobbin Winding 1 Put spool of thread on spool pin. ] Use spool cushion when using cross wound thread. ] Use spool cap when using parallelwound thread. 2 Lift thread guide bar all the way up, and run thread through triangular thread guide as shown in drawing. 3Run thread through bobbin winding thread guide as shown in drawing. 4 Run thread through top thread notch 1, and align bottom thread notch 2 with guide pin on bobbin winder shaft. 5 Press bobbin stop up against empty bobbin. If the bobbin stop does not slide easily between the top and bottom of the bobbin, check that the bobbin is seated properly with the guide pin (4) inserted into the lower notch 6 While holding the end of the thread, step on the foot controller for a few seconds. Once enough thread has wound itself around the bobbin to hold itself in place, release the foot controller and trim the excess thread. 7 Stop winding when bobbin Begin
8 Manually move bobbin stop back to original position. 9 Cut thread and remove bobbin.

bobbin insertion 1 Lift slide plate (and open bobbin door). 2 Put bobbin into the bobbin case. ] Run thread through thread notch and under latch spring, so that a length of about 10 cm is exposed. ] Use a bobbin case with an idling prevention spring. 3 Pull the latch lever of the bobbin case out and push the bobbin case into the shuttle race and release the latch lever. ] If the latch lever is not all the way on the hook, it may fly off during sewing and cause lower thread breakage. 4 Lower slide plate and close bobbin door, following numbers 1 2 above in order. 6 While holding the end of the thread, step on the foot controller for a few seconds. Once enough thread has wound itself around the bobbin to hold itself in place, release the foot controller and trim the excess thread. 7 Stop winding when bobbin is full. Take foot off foot controller. * Place the thread end so that it does not protrude from the bobbin. Bobbin Stop
so this will be ok and no need to worry about this
