SOURCE: the needle jammed down in

I solved it myself this way. This is not hard, in fact you can go to www.singerco.com and download your manual for free, then go to page, 82, and enlarge( 200%) the diagram, you then can see your parts really easy. Just take a deep breath and relax, you can do this. Let me know if this helps. I know it is so frustrating when that little thing does not want to cooperate. Good luck. You can also call Singer customer service at 1-800-4singer

Pfaff 1467 needle jammed in fabric and hand wheel stuck


Be sure to unplug the machine.
Loosen the screw that holds the needle in place (even though the needle is still stuck in place) and try moving the handwheel so the needlebar will raise to its highest position.
Try to remove the bobbin case from the machine. If the thread is tangled, you can try snipping (patiently and carefully) with small scissors and removing the loose threads with tweezers. Do NOT yank! Just keep working until the thread knot becomes loose enough to actually remove the bobbin case and the needle.

Hi. I have a new overlocker. Fabric got jammed ,got it out but machine now jams at half turn . Could some fabric still be under feed dogs ? How to get it out ?


Hello Jenny hornsey

This may sound traumatic, but there is no easy way to pin point where the tie-up is located. So proceed as follows.
Cut all the threads as they come off the antennas.

Open the front cover and pull-out all the threads by pulling them straight toward the back. If they do not come easily, try moving the hand wheel back and forth by a 1/4 revolution .. this is like a rocking motion. If still not budging, start cutting back the threads and removing them in sections until all the threads are cleared. If this step is still challenging; check that there is no residual fabric or threads still wrapped around the loopers or other part/s of the serger. If so cut them out bit by bit until everything below is cleared.

Great. Now check for threads wrapped and/or jammed anywhere above.

Since the overlocker jammed, it is possible that the needles were bent. This will continue to cause issues in stitch formation. So just to make sure; change the needle/s. Make sure that the correct needle type is being used. Every overlocker is engineered to be used with a specific needle type. The needle type will be specified in the manual and will also appear on the needle package. If the needle types are not the same, do not use those needles.

Re-thread the overlocker and stitch test on a piece of fabric before pressing down on the foot control.

This should get the overlocker back on track and you back to overlocking.

Please let me know how this works out for you.

Happy overlocking

My needle hit one of the pins holding the fabric together. Usually it snaps the needle in half and I just replace it. This time, it jammed down inside the bobbin housing and I couldn't lift the needle up...


Remove the faceplate, bobbin and case. See if you can see the bottom part of the needle. Use a flashlight to look down in the bobbin area. Put a magnet on a pair of long tweezers to magnify it. You can then gently move the tweezers around to grab hold of the broken needle.

Thread jamming in bobbin mechanism, breaking upper thread and jamming bobbin.


Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint

I was trying to sew fleece and the machine started jamming and I cleaned out the bobbin casing and also changed the needle and it still jams.


correct needle insertion is mandatory for the proper use of the sewing machine. Raise the needle bar to the highest position, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle. place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back of the machine. or if your using a round needle the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.push the needle all the way up to thestop or as far as it will go & then tighten the screw

also if the thread comes off the thread take up lever it will cause the machine to jam up-i've had that happen more times than I can count

also clean under the needle plate for lint

Change needle?


If you are asking if you should change the needle, yes. My experience is that a dull needle will cause problems long before it breaks. If you are asking how to change the needle, then: first raise and then remove the foot (not really necessary but makes it easier) If possible do not remove the screw that secures the foot. Next loosen the small screw that secures the old/broken needle in place. Remove the old/broken needle, paying close attention to the needle's alignment (which direction is the flat side of the shaft facing) Insert the new needle with the same alignment as the old needle. Tighten the small securing screw, replace the foot and tighten the screw that holds it in place. Rotate the machine by hand to insure that the new needle does not strike or rub against anything during it's full cycle. Sometimes a broken needle will indicate a timing problem or a incorrectly installed bobbin holder. Re-thread the machine and check for proper operation.

I have a SINGER 2263. I've used this machine less than ten hrs. I have a jam, I've cleaned everything. The machine will turn un-restricted in reverse but forward half a cycle. The needle will either...


With the machine unplugged, remove the bobbin case and the shuttle mechanism. Clean and oil it. Check for any fabric or threads in your feed dogs. Change needles in case that one is bent slightly. If the jam was really bad, you may have messed up the timing, unfortunately.

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.

Jammed


ROLL THE MANUAL LEVER BACK AND FORTH WITH CONTROLLED FORCE till the needle comes out! the jamming is caused by threads tangled inside the bobbin area. rolled it with a controlled force back and forth. when the needle comes out flip your machine to where you could open the bottom part and remove/clean the threads tangled on the bobbin!
place some OIL.
