Brother lb6770 The hook comes out and usually misses thread it is supposed to cut even when does catch blade fails to cut thread.Is this adjustment that's needed or replacing?


If the felt pad is missing from your bobbin case, it won't catch the thread properly and if it's not cutting even when it has caught. The cutter blade needs to be replaced.

I have a Juki TL-98Q The thread cutter and the needle up down button don't work. How can I fix them?


Has a piece of broken needle or chunk of thread jammed into the blades and are not letting them move? If there was a big time thread jam it can actually break one of your blades and you will have to go to a repair man and have the blade replaced.

HOW CAN A REPLACEMENT THREAD TRIMMER BE INSTALLED ON A PFAFF CREATIVE 2.0?


I know that machine, and I can tell you to take it into an authorized repair shop to have that cutter blade replaced correctly. There is a ton of electrical and mechanical stuff under the beautiful plastic cover. More than likely you won't have the tools or the gauges to properly set up clearances for each mechanism involved. Let a PRO repair the machine.

Bobbin thread not cutting


With the bobbin case out of the machine, touch the cutter button. Do you see the cutter arm move from left to right and then back left. If not the cutter arm is out of place. If it does it is something else.
I usually check two things:
1 - your cutter blade might be missing or dull and needs to be replaced. I would not recommend doing this yourself unless you are very good.
2 - many times there is lint or loose threads around the cutter in the area to the left of the needle plate that needs to be cleaned out. You can remove the cover to this area by first removing the needle plate and bobbin case. Then the cover is accessible to pop off by sliding the tip of a small screw driver under the cover at the bottom right corner of the cover. There should be a little opening. Carefully pop the cover off but be careful that the blade mechanism does not come off too. With your finger carefully hold the silver metal blade area steady and pick out the loose threads/lint from around the copper looking metal part. There is velcrow on the tip of the copper metal part so be sure that you don't remove that too. That's what holds the thread for the blade to cut it. If velcrow is missing, or the silver metal part is out of place that could be the problem also.
I recommend that any repairs/service be done by an authorized Viking dealer. You can find a local dealer by checking the Viking website at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us and going to the Locate a Dealer link.
Good luck

I have a Pfaff grand Quilter and my top thread is not catching the bobbin thread. When it does the stitches skips. Can anyone help!?


Hello

If you have changed the needle and rethreaded the machine, then take apart your bobbin and make certain there are no small pieces of thread or lint in it. Check your tension. Do you have an automatic thread cutter? I had the same problem and it was because my automatic thread cutter was cutting the thread too short. Some how the cutter had gotten bent...I could not tell it, but it was.I put the blade of a flat head screw driver under the cutter and GENTLY bent it back down. Fixed the problem. Works perfectly.

The selective thread cutter not cutting thread.


You need a new blade in the cutter. It is a simple repair job, but needs to go to the repairman for it to be done.

Husqvarna Sapphire - thread cutter not working


Does the metal arm come out to grab the threads to cut it? Is there a blade in the metal arm that cuts the tread? I think a standard utility knife cutter blade is the same size (just like the one that cuts the bobbin thread when you put in a new bobbin). What happens when you activate the cutter is the arm comes out, grabs the threads, brings them to the blade which cuts the threads, the velcro by the cutter holds the bobbin thread in place for the next stitch. Otherwise the thread may end up on top and the top thread would not be able to pick it up for the next stitch.

Good luck.
