With your Nelco, be sure that you install the needle properly. Frequently, Nelco machines take the needle with the flat side facing toward the throat of the machine--not toward the read like most other machines. The upper thread will thread through the needle's eye from the left toward the right. They also are a left needle position machine--meaning, the standard position of the needle when sewing straight stitch is at the left side of the presser foot, not center like most other machines.

How can I get the needle to pick up the thread from the bobbin in my Silvercrest sewing machine

Please refer to your owner's manual.
Usually, you must thread the needle by hand, then that thread will begin to pick up the under thread.
Refer to your owner's manual.
Or locate one online.

Thread is bunching up from bobbin side think tension needs adjusting

I assume you have tried adjusting the top thread tension and are referring to bobbin tension adjustment. Before you do anything, with the bobbin properly threaded, manually pull out some bobbin thread. There should be resistance, just like the resistance you feel when you pull on the top thread with the foot down. Bobbin tension adjustment is by means of a small screw in the bobbin assembly. Mark the screw head position before you start adjusting it (so you can return to that position should you need to). Make small adjustments (1/8 turn of the screw) in each direction and see if it helps the problem. Be aware that thread tension is only one of many problems that can result in faulty stitches.

Hello I just got a new home My Lock 334D machine. It has Seized intermittenly. could we troubleshoot the problem & fix it together?

Un-thread and then see if the machine will run without thread.

If not, it needs to go into the shop for repair.

If it does, refer to the manual. Or, the guide that should be printed on the inside of the serger's door.

Raise the thread antenna to it's highest position. Keep it at this position when serging. If lowered for storage, and threaded, be sure the thread does not tangle around the antenna arms.

Raise the presser foot.

Open/set the tensions to zero.

Raise the loopers to their highest level - there may be an indicator mark on the side of the serger to match with a mark on the handwheel to help with this.

Start threading from the right to the left; upper looper first.

After threading, reset the tensions to a medium number, lower the presser foot and stitch a chain to test the stitching.

Serge a scrap and adjust the tension as necessary.

Once you get the serger working as it should - don't run out of thread. Tie off, open the tension, raise presser foot and gently guide the new thread through the threading process.

When changing the thread or removing the thread to store the serger, cut the thread at the antenna, leaving thread tails for tying off the new thread.

If you do not have Nancy Zieman's "Serge with Confidence", you will find it much more informative than the average serger manual.

When i start to sew the needle get stuck and breaks, what can i do stop this?

Refer to the maintenance section of the manual for your machine. If you do not have a manual, check at the Singer Company website for a download.

Raise the needle to it's highest position and remove the bobbin case. Cleaning away any lint or thread that may have accumulated in this area.

If the machine requires oiling (only if this is indicated as part of the maintenance), use sewing machine oil only.

Replace the bobbin case - making sure the needle is at it's highest position for proper positioning of the shuttle.

Refer to the manual for threading the machine - make sure the foot is always up when doing this.

Check the bobbin to be sure the thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guides on the bobbin case.

I have a brother LS-1217 sewing machine & the right side quit working.. Can anyone help me please

Download a free manual here -

Right side - do you mean the handwheel does not turn?

This could be due to thread wrapped around the uptake lever or knotted up in the bobbin area.

Refer to the manual for the correct threading proceedure and for cleaning the bobbin area.

Be sure the presser foot is up and the needle is at it's highest position when threading or removing the bobbin case.

If this does not help, the machine will need to go into the shop.

How do i get thread that is caught under the drop in bobbin holder out ? I think it might have been manufactured in 1960

You need to refer to the manual for the instructions.

Most likely, you would start with the power off and the needle at it's highest position. You will have more room to work if you remove the needle and presser foot.

Remove the needle plate(s).

This should give you access to the bobbin case and shuttle. Carefully note how the case is placed into the shuttle so you can put it back correctly.

Snip errant threads and remove with tweezers - never **** or tug. Remove any lint while you have this area open.

Refer to the manual to see if anything in this area is to be oiled.

My prdect is fashionaire 2380.when i'm sew somthing it's break the thread,and it's stack

Check the thread spool to see if there is a nick where the thread is catching. If there is, you can smooth away the nick with an emery board, or just flip the spool so the thread is feeding from the bottom of the spool.

Sometimes the thread feeds too quickly from the spool and puddles around the spool pin. A thread net (can be purchased online or at a sewing machine dealer) can eliminate this.

Check the threading to be sure it is correct - always thread to top thread with the presser foot up.

Check the bobbin to be sure the thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the correct guides.

Refer to your manual for threading and bobbin position.
