Question about Euro-Pro Shark 60 - 384
Try to turn your handwheel using slight pressure. If it moves a tiny bit, you probably have thread caught.in between the bobbin wheel that holds your bobbin case. There is an outer ring and an inner shuttle. Place a drop of sewing machine oil in the inside of where these two are seated together. Now watch your shuttle as you turn the handwheel towards you. You may have to apply some force but you will not damage anything by using the force you can generate with your hand. You will see the thread move out. Pull it out with your fingers. If it breaks or doesn't get all of the thread, repeat the process. On most machines you never want to turn the handwheel away from you. This will cause damage to the motor over time. Make sure to stitch it out in straight stitch to check that it's sewing correctly. Thread jams happen when you get nesting (knots of thread) under the needle plate. This occurs usually when you are sewing light or tightly woven fabric with a heavy stitch, such as an appliique stitch. Try using a light wash-away stabilizer under the fabric or in the seam to prevent this. If it's an older machine or a newer Singer, hold the end of your top thread for the first couple of stitches, too.
