SOURCE: HAND WHEEL ON JANOME 350E HARD TO TURN AND MAKE SQUEAKING NOISE THEN JAMS.

Have you oiled it lately? under the bobbin there is a white colored "wick" one drop of oil (maybe 2 now).

It also might be time for a professional service.

I have a Singer 7466 and recently I developed an issue with the thread stripping and then breaking.


three possible reasons
old cotton will break or shred easily so get brand new cotton
next is eye size of the needle
a small eye with a heavy gauge cotton will not allow the cotton to pass easily
next is needle /hook timing
out of time allows the hook to pierce the needle thread and create the problem take it to a service centre for a check of the timing

Machine is threaded but is not stitching


Check the needle. Make sure it is not bent.
If it is not bent.

Take off the bobbin case "under thread".

Turn the hand wheel, so it stitches. NB. THE ROTATION MUST BE COUNTER CLOCK WISE.

Get the needle to where its the lowest point.

There is a hook behind the needle, that pick up the tread. the tip should be right behind the needle.

If it is not there, you need to call a technician

I want to tighten the bobbin tension on my Singer 111w100 but it will not tighten any further and the tension is WAY too loose and the stitches look horrible. Any fix for this?


I sure that this tension problem is not a tension, it sounds to as if the hook pick up is slightly out of timing with the needle, and it's what you call slip stitching, if you are handy you can correct this yours self, remove the top plate that cover the drive dogs remove the shuttle bobbin to expos? the needle and hook you may need to remove the drive dogs make sure you note the position of them, when your able to see the hook turn the drive wheel in the correct rotation and as the needle goes down to it's lowest point to were it about to start it's way up the pick up hook should just be going behind the needle to pick up the thread if it's not then you need a screwdriver that you can trap against the hook body not the hook it's self as you will damage it and with the other hand hold the hand wheel tight as you move the hook case one way or the other you may need to use the hand wheel to do this to give you more leverage, do this until you are satisfied that you have the correct timing position for the thread to be picked up, normally you would undo clamp screw that hold the hook case in position but more often than not you can do this without doing this, once done turn hand wheel several turns to make sure the needle is in the correct position reassemble and give it a run. I hope this cures your problem.

Happy Sewing

Needle will not catch the bobbin thread


Pick up hook as been knocked out of timing, remove feed dogs cover plate remove shuttle bobbin turn sewing machine in the correct rotation and watch the pickup hook it should be just about to go behind the needle when it's in it's lowest position just as it starts to rise up again the hook should now be behind the needle to pick up the cotton thread, if not get a screw driver and gently prise the pick up hook to it's correct position as mentioned above, this must be done whilst holding the hand wheel of the sewing machine without it moving, normally I would say undo the clamping screws that hold the hook assembly on the shaft but the majority of sewing machine will move back into position quite easily, but please do not prise it from the hook you can usually find and area to do this with out going near the hook once done turn by hand to make sure you have done it correctly as above when satisfied reassemble.
Happy sewing.

My sewing machine will not pick up the bobbin thread


double check the timing. The hook must pick up the loop in the needle thread as it starts on its up stroke.
Remove bobbin cover, needle plate etc to expose hook. Turn hand wheel slowly towards you until needle reaches its very lowest point
then continue to turn very slowly until needle comes up about 3/16" in this position the tip of the hook should be exactly behind the needle and just above its eye

Will not pick up bobbin thread


Unusual for this machine. Check to be sure the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back of the machine. If it is, remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel slowly toward you and see if the point of the hook is above or below the eye of the needle when the hook point is aligned behind the needle. If the eye is above the point of the hook the machine is out of time and best taken to qualified technician.

Bobbin thread not being picked up


This unfortunately sounds dismally like a timing problem. When a sewing machine makes a sudden mechanical stop as when a needle is bent slightly and hits the needle plate, sometimes the other machine bits revolve along further causing the needle to be introduced into the hook either to early or to late to catch the thread.

To test this, remove the thread, the needle plate and and the bobbin case. Replace the needle with a brand new one. Yes, again. Revolve the machine by hand via the balance wheel and watch closely as the needle goes into the hook region allow it to it move down and then just start to move up. If the tip of the hook is not pretty close to right behind the needle than it is more than likely a timing problem.

If the tip of the hook is behind the needle in the scarf (the slight hollow on the back of the needle) than it is not timing. Thread the machine normally like it is and watch what happens as you manually turn the machine via the balance wheel. The thread should catch and be pulled around the hook and let go.

Try this and then either you figured it out the problem or contact me again. Either way please vote. Thanks

Make sure your needle is in correctly. Check your threading again. If that does not work, remove throat plate, install new needle, turn hand wheel until needle is at its lowest position and observe if the hook is exactly behind the eye of the needle. If that is correct then you do not have threaded correctly. If it is not then the machine needs to be re-timed.
