Question about Sewing Machines
I am new to sewing and I just want my machine to work properly!
This problem happens about 70 percent of the time:
I can bring up the bobbin thread and all looks well. I sew a simple line and the thread gets jammed in the bobbin! When I open up the bobbin case there are threads everywhere. Then the handwheel won't turn or it's extremely tight and then won't turn. I have to get the threads out, redo the bobbin and start again. What am I doing wrong? I follow all the directions and went to the class provided, so I know how to wind the bobbin correctly. Please advise!
This has happened to me, even though I have been sewing for 30 yrs. When I take the bobbin holder out I realise what I have done wrong. When placing a bobbin into the bobbin holder the thread must be running around the bobbin CLOCKWISE. If incorrect take bobbin out of holder turn it over, so now the thread will run clockwise.If bobbin placed in holder and thread runs anti-clockwise, when you tried to turn wheel to bring bobbin thread up, it will either not do it at all or will make a huge tangle of the threads. Happy Sewing

There is a small **** in the bobin casing that you must make sure your threead is pulled into. Try holding onto the thread from the needle with your left hand while turning the wheel with your right hand. Also, make sure that you have at least 2-3 inches of thread at the end of the bobin, so there is enough to pull up

I have the same problem. I haven't figured out how to fix it completely, but I've found things that can help. First, make sure your machine is threaded properly. When the bobbin is in the case (and threaded) when you pull the thread, the bobbin should turn counter-clockwise. When you start sewing, hold onto the threads a little behind the foot and give them a little tension. I've found when the threads are completely loose, sometimes they get pulled down into the machine. So hold onto them until you have enough stitching for them to hold their own.

I was having similar issues. Apparently they had made changes to the machine and one of the changes was the bobbin holder. I ordered a new one ($2.50) but haven't tried it out yet.

Try a huskavarna bobbin if your not using one i've heard this can make all the difference
