Try a brand new needle. If it is still malfunctioning, most like it is out of time. You can search the internet for sewing machine timing or take it back for service.

On a baby lock 6300, it's threaded correctly but when running, the track (feed system)under the foot won't pull the material through. What can I check? There are no repair shops anywhere in my area.


1. It most likely is the foot pressure not set properly. With thick material it needs to be less and with thin material it is opposite. Just test a piece of like fabric that is rags.
2. Make sure that you clean out any thread under the plate as good as you can.
3. Check your tensions. The top should be around four. The bobbin tension has to be even with the top tension. (like tug of war) However, when you thread the top do it with the foot up to check for snags. Snags are a serious problem and cause the material from moving. Good Luck.

Thread keeps breaking.had it serviced reciently.thread and tention correcthelp


1. Replace needle
2. Get good thread. One without fuzz. Usually embroidery thread is better quality.
3. Adjust the bobbin carefully. I've enclosed a guide how to do this.
4. Thread the top while the pressure is up. While threading the machine give tugs to check for snags. If there are any snags you must fix them first.
5. Check the needle to ensure it is installed the right direction. Thread the needle.
6. Adjust the tension to four. Pull just a little bit to see if the tension is a little or way too much which won't allow the thread to flow at all.
Once the tensions have been set correctly and there are no snags the sewing machine should run smoothly.

Needle is threaded correctly, but no thread is going into material. How do I fix this?


1. Make sure the needle is in facing the right direction and that it is a new needle.
2. Is the thread pulled from the bobbin?
3. Check the bobbin tension and start the top tension at four. Always thread the machine with the foot in the up position. This way you can feel for snags while threading. If there are any they must be eliminated.
4. Following the instructions that I have attached and you are likely to succeed.
HOW TO SET YOUR TENSION
Real Important: The objective is to even the top and bobbin tensions equally.
1. Remove bobbin case. Put bobbin in (rotating counterclockwise).
2. Put thread under the tension plate. Let the bobbin hang from finger and bob up and down lightly.
3. Adjust tension. The bobbin should extend one inch every time it is bobbed.
4. Put one drop of oil on race the bobbin case sets on top of. Replace the bobbin case and bobbin.
5. With the pressure foot up thread the top and give little tugs as you do this. There should be no snags or resistance. Make sure the thread goes in between the tension disc.
6. Now, put pressure foot down. Give a little tug to see if there is a resistance. Set the tension to four is a good start.
7. Try a piece of rag to sew. Set the tension on top to adjust for a perfect stitch.

Top thread intermittently goes through middle of bobbin thread


If it does ok for around twenty stitches and then pulls the bottom stitch to the top there is this problem:
1. Top thread has tension added all at one time. This means the thread is getting a snag somewhere.
2. When you thread the top do it with the foot up. As you are threading make constant small tugs to see if there are any snags.
3. When a snag is found it will have to be smoothed for the thread to move smoothly.
4. Check the thread while it is flowing through the needle. If it is getting a puff ball you will need to replace the thread with a quality embroidery thread.

How do I set a straight stitch? What is causing the top thread to break?


You do not say which machine you have. As for a straight stitch, make sure the needle is central and not in zig zag mode.
The thread can break for several reasons, such as. Incorrect tension.
:Wrong thread for the material.
: Thread in bobbin different from the top thread.
:Old thread.
: Not threaded correctly.
: Needle not inserted correctly, or incorrect needle.or the thread could be wound around the spool holder pin,
Try removing the spool and turn it around.
Hope this helps.

Bernina artista 180 is stitching totally Irelevant stitches to the button touched. is it a motherboard problem?


FIRST THING. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A SATIN FOOT. THIS FOOT HAS A CUT ON THE BOTTOM TO ALLOW THE THREAD TO MOVE SMOOTHLY W/O SNAGS. SECOND: GET GOOD THREAD THAT DOESN'T CLOG UP AT YOUR NEEDLE. WHEN YOU THREAD YOUR MACHINE MAKE SURE YOU DO IT WHILE THE FOOT IS UP. AS YOU ARE GOING THROUGH EACH GUIDE SLIGHTLY TUG FOR SNAGS. CONTINUE UNTIL THE NEEDLE IS THREADED. NOW PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN AND SLIGHTLY TUG AND YOU SHOULD FEEL A LITTLE TENSION. SET THE TENSION AT AROUND 3. FOUR: REMOVE TENSION AND CARRIER. WHILE THE BOBBIN IS IN THE CARRIER AND THREAD THROUGH THE TENSION SPRING BOB THE ASSEMBLY UP AND DOWN GENTLY. YOU SHOULD SEE THE ASSEMBLY EXTEND ONE INCH. IF IT MOVES A LOT THEN TIGHTEN SCREW AND IF IT DOESN'T MOVE ENOUGH THEN LOOSEN. PUT A DROP OF OIL ON THE RACE WHERE YOU REMOVED THE BOBBIN AND CARRIER AND PUT ASSEMBLY BACK. NOW, YOU CAN BRING THE BOBBIN THREAD TO THE TOP OF THE PLATE. WHAT I'M GETTING ACROSS TO YOU IS THE IMPORTANCE OF TENSION SETTINGS, GOOD THREAD, GOOD NEEDLE AND TO FIND OUT IF YOUR MACHINE IS HAVING SNAGS. NO, I DON'T THINK YOUR MACHINE HAS A BURNED MOTHERBOARD.

Hi! the top thread keeps falling out of the needle. can you help me?


Are you holding both threads at the back of the pressure foot when you start each seam? This one thing will help to prevent lots of thread into rotary hook problems. You should hold the threads, start stitching for 3 stitches forward, 3 backwards, then at least five forward again before you release the threads, then continue to guide the fabric wit your hands as you seam. Provided you hold the thread tail when you start stitching there should be no reason why the thread is pulling from the needle.

Also check your top thread is not getting caught/snagged on something enroute to the needle and that your top tension dial is set to 5? Perhaps if you have tension turned right up, this would prevent top thread from feeding smoothly to the needle.

Is there any other thing I can do to stop the thread from the upper looper from breaking after about 30cms of sewing. there is no sign of it being about to break. I have changed thread, needles and...


it could be due to one or more of the following

  • Threading is not correct.
check that bobin is not snagging thread,
remove bobin and remove any dust and fluff from bobin area
  • Needle is wrong size.
  • Needle has been inserted wrong.
  • Needle and thread does not match.
  • Starting to stitch too fast.
  • Thread take-up lever has not been threaded.
  • Correctly thread machine.
  • Replace needle with correct size.
  • Properly insert needle.
  • Start machine at a medium speed.
  • Check threading order.

I hope this was helpful

I need to know the correct settings for the thread on my sewing machine. it bunches underneath


Hi,

Thread bunching on the bottom almost always indicates that the thread is not sitting snugly between the upper tension disks or is out of the take-up lever.
  1. Make sure the upper tension is on a medium setting - generally 4 1/2 - 5 on the tension dial. If the upper tension is set correctly, continue with...
  2. Completely remove the thread from the thread path and start over, making sure the presser foot lifter is in the up position (this releases the tension disks allowing the thread to more easily position correctly).
  3. Once you've threaded the needle, lower the presser foot, making sure the thread tail is not under the foot but coming directly out of the needle eye.
  4. Give the thread a tug - if there's no tension on it, it's still not fully in the tension and needs to be "flossed"... grasp the thread tail with one hand and the thread just where it comes off the spool of thread with the other hand and floss it through the tension disks just as you'd floss your teeth. This will ensure that the thread is positioned correctly between the tension disks.
  5. If this still doesn't cure the "bunching", please provide some specifics about your machine - brand, model - and we'll do our best to figure out what's happening with your machine.
Happy stitching,
Kim & Linnette
