SOURCE: bobbin area will not work

There should be a spinning cover with a hook that fits over the bobbin. Normally, you just pull the bobbin thread out through the swinging/sliding plate hole. Turn the machine by hand toward you (at the top) until the needle dives into and comes back with both threads. Separate the threads and assuming that the thread tension above the needle is set correctly, feed a piece of material in to see if it sews correctly. The tension is set so that the thread is even on both sides of the material. Let the machine pull the material through at it's own pace, your function is to guide the material.

My Janome harmony sewing machine is totally jammed


1. Try to take out the needle. If this doesn't work take out the bobbin carefully so you don't get stuck by the needle. Also remove the bobbin case. (thing that the bobbin sets in)
2. Once you have the two out try to turn the hand wheel. It should turn.
3. Replace the needle. Clean the bobbin area thoroughly. Oil the race where the bobbin case rides. One drop is all it needs.
4. With the needle inserted and no bobbin inserted turn the hand wheel.
5. If it turns ok then insert the bobbin case and bobbin.
6. Does it turn? If it is a problem turning then you will need to get it timed from a maintenance person.

I have a singer sewing machine 247 . I broke the needle and have replaced it now the bobbin will not turn.


CHANGE THE NEEDLE. TAKE OUT ALL OF THE BOBBIN CASING. CLEAN IT AND PUT ONE DROP OF OIL ON THE RACE (THE INDENT AREA THAT EVERYTHING RIDES ON AND CAN'T BE REMOVED). LOOK FOR A BROKEN NEEDLE PART AND THREAD AND ANYTHING THAT SHOULDN'T BE THERE. PUT EVERYTHING BACK. TURN THE HAND WHEEL TOWARDS YOU AND OBSERVE IF THERE IS ANYTHING TOUCHING THE NEEDLE. IF THERE IS THEN THAT WILL NEED TO BE FIXED.

Needle only makes one revolution and stops, stuck.


Did you sew with it after it was cleaned? It may have some thread stuck behind or in the area of the bobbin case. That often makes it hard to turn.
Or maybe the seviceman didn't fix it right.

Needle hitting bottom of bobbin area


Get a new needle first and try that. If that doesn't work, you're timing is likely fouled up and it needs a quick trip to the shop. (Seriously, that takes about 5 minutes to fix so depending on how busy the shop is you might be less than an minutes.) Also, don't let them recommend a bunch of other services. If you were so inclined and have a screwdriver handy, google "fix sewing machine timing" and you can tinker with it yourself but it's no guarantee.

Brother Sewing Embroidery Machine


I agree with sylviaivie about find another repairman, they are suppose
to guarantee the work they do.
when the upper shaft is replaced & then the machine is retimed
the machine should work just fine.
but just don't take it back to that man to be repaired
here is a tip if it happens again,,
always try to cut the top thread first,
& turn the machine up on it's back to access the bottom cover
take the cover off the bottom to get access to the bobbin thread
where you can cut the bobbin thread
then you should be able to get the needle out without breaking it &
damaging the upper shaft, replace the needle & make sure
that the thread is good quality & not knotty, clean out the bobbin area of lint or thread
always change the needle on the embroidery machine every project
make sure the bobbin area is kept clean of lint or thread
clean under the needle plate at least once a week for lint if you
embroidery everyday or just often

Remove thread message in husqvarna viking sapphire 870 quilt


I had this same problem, on my Designer Diamond. I blew it out with an air can and that didn't work, but then I decided to turn it off, then back on and start sewing a line in reverse. That seemed to fix it. My machine is working fine now.

Thread keeps tangling up (birdnesting), and i've cleaned the machine out (which fixed this problem in the past) and adjusted the tension, but nothing works!


Check that it is threaded correctly (both top and bottom) making sure that the upper thread is in the takeup lever. Watch the needle as you slowly turn the handwheel counter clockwise (toward you) and the needle point touches the fabric (make sure presser foot is down). Is the thread still relatively taunt? If it is loose, the upper thread tension unit does not have enough tension. Check the areas where the thread goes and make sure you remove any loose threads or fluff which could be inhibiting the tension discs from closing over the thread. If the tension unit still is not tightening enough, the tension unit may need to be replaced or the circuit board replaced. If everything is ok in the upper thread area, now look at the bobbin area. With no fabric, watch as the needle enters the bobbin area. Does it go down and the upper thread catch the bobbin thread and pulls it to the surface? Check for anything preventing the bobbin thread from being pulled up to the surface through the needle plate. If you have still not been able to resolve the problem suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck.

Singer Futura 350


Dear Wendy,

The E4, error message means the safety device is activated. Machine is locked up due to thread entangled with the bobbin case. Remove the needle plate and bobbin case. Check for any thread around the hook area. Also check your handwheel. It should turn freely. Good Luck
