Rethread the machine. If you are threading it correctly the bobbin case may have gotten out of place and is causing it to jam every time. Many times the thread comes out of the take up lever (the thing that goes up and down) and you dont even realize it. Rethread first and be very deliberate to get it in the top tension correctly.

How to change stich to long stich for gathering?


http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/3e3e5558857ed68836712ac8545abb48178772a5.pdf is the manual for your machine; look at p. 27. You want stitch 00, and then increase the stitch length with the up/down buttons on the control panel.

p. 24 of the pdf covers adjusting the top tension of the machine; you'll have an easier time of gathering if you reduce the top tension about 1-2 number setting.

My sewing machine will not stich. i have tryed everything i can find on this problem but nothings working


Make sure nothing has either gotten stuck/caught/jammed somewhere inside it. Insure that the thread stays attached to the needle. Or the material you are trying to sew/stitch may be too thick.

SKIPPED STITCHES

When I am sewing it will sew about 3 stiches and then jam.. It does it if I change weight of material or it will s kip stiches.


Skipped stitches is usually indication that needle is blunt or burred.
Or if you are using a sharp needle on knit fabrics it may also skip a little.

Not sure what you mean by "change weight of material" - do you mean you are sewing applique and going from one fabric weight onto another? or different sewing projects?

It is a good idea to change your needle for each new project (4-6 hours sewing time max) and choose the right type of needle and size for your project.

However, the jamming part sounds more like thread tension issues, especially if the jamming is happening underneath from the bobbin. If stitching is loose underneath, then top tension is the problem and visa versa.

Recheck your threading path, top and bottom tensions and that you have good quality thread. Change the needle, rewind a fresh bobbin, thread up and try again.

There is really good info on www.sewing.about.com or I refer to my Singer Sewing Machine textbook at lot too. Good luck.

I have a Janome 6260. My machine sewed great, but this time when I went to use it the knob on the side of the machine that makes the needle go up and down suddenly got really hard to turn and then when...


I've had the Lo come on my screen of my sewing machine also, but normally when I turned it off it corrected the jam up.
Lo- A button is pressed when the machine halts due to a overload
wait 15 seconds to recover
if thread jamming causes the overload, remove the tangled thread
check the bobbin area for lint & loose threads
also check to see if the bobbin is warped
check you needle to see if it's bent-roll on a flat surface to see if it rolls correctly
if it's blunt it makes a popping sound when going thru fabric
let me know if these suggestions help

In need to know how to adjust my stiching and needle adjustment/ the bobing is jamming(not stiching)


Stitch length is adjusted by holding down the small button in the bed and turning the wheel to the desired number of stitches. The numbers are either on the wheel, next to the belt pulley, or under a small cover on top of the machine. Hold the button and turn the wheel either toward or away from you to get the stitches you want.
Bobbin jamming is either because of incorrect top tension or incorrect threading. Go to www.consew.com and get a parts and operation manual for free for a 224. It 's the same as the 226.
