Janome 6600. Needle came loose &fell down into the bobbin area. Needle did not break off. I took off the plate and manually tried to move a new needle and shaft up/down. needle is hitting something


If you did not get the old needle out, it may be blocking something. That old needle must be removed before you attempt to any further sewing. Try removing the bobbin case from the machine and looking in there to see if you can locate and remove the old needle. Sometimes, I've had to turn the machine sideways or upside down and shake it to dislodge the needle.

============

Open the bobbin area and hand rotate the handwheel while watching the needle action. If it is hitting, you should see it. If that is the case, the machine may be out of time and need service.

How do i disconect the drive to wind a bobbin


To "disconnect" means the sewing needle and feed dog is not functional if I understand your issue.
1. Disconnect: On the hand wheel there is a small outside ring in the center. Loosen it by turning towards yourself.
2. Take the thread from the sewing spool to the front gadget (round tension) and run around it in a figure eight appearance and run it to the bobbin.
3. Place the thread to enter the bobbin in the center with part going upwards into one of the holes to temporarily hold the thread until the bobbin is revolving. The bobbin must be pushed to the right to get the bobbin revolving.

Open up the bobbin case and remove the bobbin and case. There may be something catching on the hook (random thread) that is preventing the motion. The bobbin case could be off-kilter as well. If that is not it, take the cover off the sewing head and see what is blocking the mechanical parts of the levers.

Noisy bobbin


If you bought new bobbins, they might not be quite round. This happens on mmetal bobbins.Another thing that happens is that you may have broken a needle and bent your bobbin case enough that the bobbin hits it as the shuttle goes around. If neither of these is the case, you might try to put a drdrop of oil in the "race" , which is the small grove in the piece that revolves around the bobbin case as you sew.

I 've been using this 2639 Singer since 2006. It was working perfect until one day the bobbin case popped up away from the shuttle causing the needle to be blocked from moving. So, I removed the p


First change that needle. It's likely bent. A bent needle won't create a stitch.

Then double check your timing. It sounds like you have it ******** a bit... But that's hard to determine from a description. Before you start the timing process, make sure that your needle bar is in the correct position. (typically the upper timing mark on the needle bar is just below the lower needle bar guide when the needle is at its very lowest point) If necessary loosen the needle bar holder and make a correction. Once the needle bar is positioned correctly... then move on to the shuttle/needle timing.

Good luck!

My thread keeps breaking at the end of my sewing session. not sure why, I've been sewing blocks for a quilt and I've tried to change the thread


Upper thread breaks
1.needle may be in backwards
Correct needle insertion
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of sewing machine.
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 or if using a round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
2.upper tension may be to tight--try 3 to 5
3.the needle may be bent or damaged--try rolling the needle on a flat surface to see if it's bent or not
4.thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
???
Lower thread breaks
The most probable cause of lower thread breaking is improperly wound bobbin
1.always start with a empty bobbin
Never wind one color over the other
2.choose thread that is identical in color & type as the one to be used for upper threading
3.wind the bobbin evenly across & in layers
4.don't wind the bobbin so full that it would be tight & hard to insert into bobbin case
5.bent bobbin--replace
6.lint built up in the bobbin case--frequent cleanings will eliminate this problem, the more often you use the sewing machine the more often it needs to be cleaned
7.thread catching on the bobbin spring or latch on bobbin case, check to see that the bobbin is inserted completely & correctly, & that you are using the right kind of bobbin .

How do you get the bobbin in


right below where the needle goes into the bottom housing there is a door. open up the door and right under the plate is an opening that revolves. the bobbin goes into this opening. when you put the bobbin in here bring the tail of the thread out of the opening. the shuttle that carries the bobbin will rotate and get hitched to the needle's thread and form the lock stitch of the machine.

I have a Pfaff Expression and the bobbin casing does not come out so I can clean out behind there. Usually in my other machines there are 2 little levers that turn and then you can pull the whole bobbin shuttle out

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

Re Janome 2041


Okay, so there is a jam. Take out the bobbin case and the hook. Remove the bobbin from the bobbin case if you haven't already.

Try and turn balance wheel now. if it is still stuck than you have a pretty big problem. Chances are the timing has been thrown so far that something is bumping something else and keeping it from revolving. Repair probably required.

If you're really lucky and the balance wheel does turn do this:
Clean bobbin case and hook gently with a tooth bush or some such. Make sure the bobbin doesn't have a bit of needle jammed in it. Examine the bobbin case and hook, looking for any damage. There has to be something preventing the normal revolutions of the machine from happening.
Good Luck and if this was helpful please vote for me. Thanks
