You may want to take it for service. Could be the machine has seized with the reverse button stuck. May need to be disassembled.

My old Montgomery Ward sewing machine, m# 1957, acts like the needle mechanism is stuck, in the "bobbin refill" mode! The wheel won't budge. I have no book so don't know how to engage the needle arm!


As long as the bobbin winder is engaged, the machine will not sew. This is a safety feature.

Check the large wheel on the right side of your machine. Is there a smaller wheel inside? On some machines, this is the mechanism that activates/deactivates the bobbin winder. Will that inner wheel turn? If so, check to see if that causes the machine to sew.

I have a Montgomery ward sewing machine model number uhtj259a and I can't thread it right the thread keeps coming out of the needle when I try to sew


Be sure to pull at least 4 or 5 inches of thread through the needle before taking the first stitch. It is helpful to hold both thread tails in the left hand while slowly taking the first couple of stitches. It also helps to make sure the needle is at its highest point before taking the first stitch.

When threading, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and verify the thread path is correct.

How to thread an old Montgomery Ward sewing machine model 30 ? e


Search the internet for your machine make & model & threading instructions. You may not find your exact machine, but a lot of similar machines will have the same threading sequence.

Just a hint: be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread so the tension disk will allow the thread to seat properly.

Help with an older sewing machine


There are lots of men who sew...it is not gender specific.

Perhaps this will help--unfortunately not free:

Montgomery Wards Sewing Machine Instruction and Service Manuals

Montgomery Ward did not make their own machines, so it was most likely manufactured by a sewing machine company with Montgomery Ward's name on it.

However, most machines thread similarly. Just be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread--this allows the thread to seat in the tension disk. Set the top tension to about the midway point to start and then tweak from there.

Understanding Thread Tension Threads

Bobbin tension is usually the last thing to try to adjust...be sure to mark the screw setting BEFORE making any adjustment...

Bobbin Tension How and Why Tension is Adjusted

Needles are probably the least expensive resolution to a lot of sewing machine problems--change them often!!! About every 8 hours of sewing, and be sure to use a needle that is compatible with the thread and fabric. Be sure to install the needle with the flat part facing the correct direction. Most machines have the flat part facing the back of the machine, however, some machines with the bobbin loading from the side will have the flat part of the needle facing the harp (throat) of the machine. AVOID old or bargain bin threads! Use fresh, good quality sewing machine thread (generally, Coats & Clark is not one of them...)
