Overload Viking:
The machine has a built in overload protector, if your needle can’t penetrate, it may stop the machine from working for a few minutes. Just wait it will reset automatically. Then, try a Sharp needle (denim needle is ideal) and be sure to Never Never reverse sew on heavy fabric, your needle will bend and hit the needle plate, use the FIX button for knotting (it really does work).

SOURCE: start/stop button is not working.

When you have the embroidery unit connected to the machine, you must have the foot pedal cord disconnected. Then it should work. As for using this machine for normal sewing, yes, it is supposed to do that. Unless you get a lemon like mine. It lost reverse, and only takes long stitches. Hopefully your luck is better than mine with this Disney "thing".

By 'The wheel the belt is on' you mean the motor pully? If that is so obviously some oil has some how made way on the pully and the belt. Try to remove the belt and clean both wheels and the belt free of oil. This shd slove the problem.

If it doest then please send a photo of the arrangement showing pully and belt. U didnt mention if the machine is old or new. Did u oil it recently before trouble developed?

Is pfaff hobbymatic a heavy duty machine?

The term "heavy duty" sewing machine is thrown about loosely lately. There are new machines (including Pfaff, Singer, etc) for sale advertised as "heavy duty," but I would be hesitant to stitch denim jean hems on them. The Pfaff 807, which appears to be an older mechanical, is probably more "heavy duty" than some newer machines on the market. However, "heavy duty" does not mean that you can sew big canvas sailcloth or heavy upholstery projects. A domestic machine (which the Pfaff 807 is) is really meant for general domestic sewing. If you want to sew "heavy duty" fabric, then look to an industrial machine. Remember that frequent sewing of heavy fabric takes a toll on a domestic machine, ie the motor, needlebar, other working parts, thus hastening the demise of your machine and the more frequent need for service & repair.

How put the nedle on a adler 187 sewing machine

On your machine's needle bar, there should be a thumb screw on the right. Insert your needle with the flat side facing left.

I found a discussion that may help you since these machines run very differently than say a singer. The hand wheel for instance is turning away from the user (clockwise) instead of anti-clockwise.

Here's the link. Read the posts with the name djhinca.

Good luck

Domestic machines are not made to run at contsant high speed for long periods of time, the chances are the machine will give before the motor and then the strain of the mahine will burn the motor out, they are made purely for domestic use, stop and start, a lot of people use them for doing outdoor work much to their cost

I have a White Model 1409, the stitching on top of the fabric looks just fine, but you turn it over and it is a mess of excess thread and loops, I have adjusted the tension I am not sure what else to do?

Top tension usually about 4 or 5, make sure you have the bobbin in the correct way round so it turns anti clockwise, make sure the bobbin is not tight, you should only just be able to pull the thread through with slight resistence, if it feels tight then slacken the screw on the bobbin case about a quarter of a turn at a time anti clockwise and test sew and keep adjusting until you get it right.

How do you thread the bottom stich on a brother sewing machine?

most of the newer machines have a drop in bobbin that the bobbin turns anti clockwise if it is in correctly lower your needle foot and it should pull up the thread.
