If it is a mechanical machine, it may have seized due to lack of oil.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

My elna experience 660 is bunching threads in big loops on the back of the fabric and the needle bent and hit the needle plate. It's sounding clunky


Install a brand new needle.

Remove the top thread from the machine (ALWAYS cut the thread at the spool, raise the presser foot, and pull the thread down through the needle eye.)

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

If it still does not sew properly or sounds clunky, take it for service. It could have been knocked out of time or bent something.

Why doesn't the needle on my stitch so quick raise up high enough for me to put material under the thing that holds it down


incorrect needle
needle not fully up in the retainer
most needles will be just slightly above the foot when it is raised when the needle stroke is at it's upper most point of travel

Brother pe770 - needle threader is stuck in the down position while trying to thread it


Hi Kay,
I found the manual, in case you don't have one, HERE. On page 30, it has an illustration showing two buttons, and the presser foot lever. If you press the button once or twice, it will raise the needle.
> Press (Needle position button) once or twice to raise the needle.
> The needle is correctly raised when the mark on the handwheel is at the top, as shown below. Check the handwheel and, if this mark is not at this position, press (Needle position button) until it is.
Get the manual if you don't have one, that will give you so much more than any here can do, but I think that should solve you trouble, Please rate and comment, Thank You,
Joe

I am getting the message Raise the Needle Bar slowly. I can't find anything about a needle bar in the instruction book about a Needle Bar.


Just turn the hand wheel. The needle bar is the round bar that the needle is inserted into and is what makes the needle go up and down as you sew.

How do I turn corners with the overlock foot for a Janome 2049?


Sew to the end of the fabric, slowing right down to within a stitch or two of the end, manually turn wheel to complete last two stitches, stop, raise needle, raise presser foot, turn fabric so the back edge of the fabric is just under the needle, drop needle, drop presser foot and resume.

Screen says that needle is in down position but it isn't. I have repeated pressed the raise needle button and the machine lowers and then raises the needle but the error message doesn't go awya.


Look for an optical sensor that the needle mechanism blocks when down. It's a small plastic rectangular package with a slot through the middle that the needle blocks with a vane of some kind. This slot can pick up lint and dust which makes the machine think that the needle is down. Clean the slot with a vacuum and a fine needle. Hope this helps.
