Model 9600..thread keeps knotting up on bottom


Check the upper tension discs for lint: Raise the presser foot to open up the discs and blow or 'floss' between them. Any lint or thread in there will prevent them from giving the proper tension.

If that does not work then you may have a damaged hook and/or bobbin case that is snagging the thread. There are a few other reasons also, but you probably need to have it serviced to fix.

Good luck!

If the machine line won't run straight, then it needs to go back to the manufacturer, but if you find that you can't make it go straight, then slow down and watch the edge and keep it straight by judging the distance and keeping it the same. You will speed up with practise

Why does my thread knot on the back when stitching in place?


Several things to try:
Pull thread tails (both bobbin thread and upper thread) straight back and when you lower the presser foot, make sure they are held down straight back. This may or may not be enough to solve the problem, but it is simple to try, and often works. You might want to hold the thread tails while you start sewing.
Use a starter--folded piece of fabric scrap about an inch long--and begin sewing oink middle of starter. Push the fabric you want to see right up to the starter and keep sewing from the starter right onto your project without lifting the presser foot or cutting the thread. When you finish sewing, cut the little piece of thread between the starter and your project.
Before lowering presser foot, use wheel to lower your needle once and then pull up bobbin thread to top surface of your project. Then hold both bobbin and upper thread tails, lower your presser foot, and begin sewing. Release the thread tails after a few stitches.
Hope this helps. Those nasty "thread nests" are a real pain.

Bobbin case problems are common, and usually bobbin race parts are easy to find and not too expensive if you need to completely replace them. Otherwise I have successfully sanded down burrs on cases and races if that is what the thread is snagging on... ? Without having someone look at how it is snagging, it is hard to diagnose. Hope you figure it out!

Blind hemmer is "frozen" won't move at all. What can I do?


on a normal sewing machine this usually means the threads are all snagged up in a knot in the bobbin case. Snip your threads, wriggle the fabric out, remove all snagged threads and rethread the machine. I don't know if this will work with your blind hemmer.

I have a Euro-Pro 7500. I can't seem to sew a straight stictch without the thread binding up from the bottom of the material.


Do you mean the thread knots and loops up under or over the fabric? If so it sounds like you need to re-thread. You may have not put the thread into one of the tension wheels correctly. Keep the presser foot up when you do it.

The top tension pulls the top thread up. The bobbin tension pulls the bottom thread down. A balanced tension is an an even knot between the stitches.

If the thread is messy on the bottom, the top tension is non-existent or is too low. The top thread tension dial should be on 4 or 5. Pull the thread out and re-thread the machine with the presser foot up. If it is still messy, perhaps there is a burr on the bobbin case snagging the thread.
