What to do to fix the bobbin thread from jamming up everytime


There are a couple of reasons that can cause this.
a. Raise the pressure foot. As you load the top thread give small tugs to check for snags. They must be stopped.
b. Once the top threading is done on top lower the pressure foot. Now, give a tug on the thread. Is the tension really hard or just average? You may need to lower the tension to stop the jamming of the bobbin thread.
c. Clean the bobbin area. Check the bobbin tension and adjust as you need to.
d. Put a drop of oil on the race. (Thing the bobbin case sits on)
e. As the bobbin hook (sharp thing) is rotating does the bobbin case move back and forth a lot. You may need to adjust the bar that is next to the bobbin case so it can't rotate. Usually you will need to move it forward.
SEE INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO ADJUST THE BOBBIN. TENSION OF UPPER AND LOWER THREAD MUST BE RIGHT.

Fabric is pulled into the bobbin area


You have probably got a needle hole in your bobbin case....the black thing the bobbin sits down into. One common problem is when folks take off their stitch plate to untangle a jam up, the bobbin case is not held in the right position and the first stitch after the clean out jams the machine. Check you are position the bobbin case correctly and the bobbin case has not been punctured.

Elna 2007 sewing machine breaking upper thread in bobbin unit. It will be going along fine then the thread will snap. thread tension on 1. zigzag stitch. Thread passing through upper machine OK, but...


Is your top thread tension on 1? this sounds way too loose, should be 4 or 5.
This is a horizontal top loading bobbin machine isn't it like the Janomes?

Do you have a manual for it? It sounds to me like the top thread is too loose and as it is pulled down and around the rotary hook there is no tension on it to pull it back up through the fabric and form a stitch which is then causing it to jam. Then once youve gots bits of thread in there, its just jamming and jamming. Cleaning out the bobbin holder as you described is good, you may need to do it again and ensure all bits of thread are out of it.

I think you need to revist all the threading up and ensure that the top thread is under tension, try number 5. Also check that bobbin is correctly wound nice and smoothly, then loaded into the bobbin holder correctly so that the thread is coming off the bobbin spool in the right direction, ie thread needs to come off the bobbin, then reverse direction in a "v" shape, usually in the direction of the back of the free arm. And that the thread has been clicked into the tension spring fully, put the thread into the slot of the tension device and press down on it with your finger tip until you hear it click into tension.

Also double check the take up lever, if the thread has slipped out of this, it will jam up for sure.

If you don't have any manual for this then try www.sewusa.com, there is good troubleshooting tips and threading diagrams for lots of makes and models.

Hope this helps you, persever, its most likely threading/tension issues and can be overcome with the right settings.

Sewing slowed and then stopped


Hello,
If you are unable to move the wheel then something is locking up the mechanism.
Please try removing the bobbin and the bobbin case and try turning the wheel.
If the unit does not jam, try reinserting the bobbin and the bobbin case. You might need to consider replacing the bobbin case if the unit jams again.
If it still jams without the bobbin case in, then the mechanism might be broken and you should bring the unit to be looked at by a brother tech. Brother techs will look at the machine and diagnose the issue free of charge and will only charge you if they have to do any out of warranty repairs.
Thanks,
Pat

Machine jammed


Turn off the power and remove the needle and presser foot.

Open the needle plate and bobbin case and clean the area, removing lint and the jammed thread.

Make sure the bobbin case is properly in place.

There is a maintenance section in the manual to show you how to remove the bobbin case and clean the machine.

Install a new needle with the flat side to the back of the machine.

Rethread the machine with the presser foot up.

Make sure the thread from the bobbin is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

If you need a manual, you can download one at Brother.com.

Thread gets caught on bobbin and jams


You may need a new bobbin case if your machine is an older model.. Over time the cases get nicks in them causing thread to catch on it. Have you lubricated the bobbin area? Needs one drop of oil for every ,I believe it is 25 hours of usage. That may take care of it. The oil goes under the bobbin right in the center of bobbin case. Remove your bobbin before applying the oil. i hope this helps you. Good Luck

Bobbin thread jam


You can remove the thread jam by moving the hand wheel back and forth. Remove the bobbin case and bobbin.Unthread and remove the needle.Rock the handwheel back and forth. Don't be rough but you will need to exert a little pressure to get this thread to come out. What you are doing is cutting the thread which is locked inside the hook race.
