    I just tried replacing the needle and that did not seem to fix the problem. The indentation is towards me. I even tried redoing the bobin and that didn't do anything. The problem is that the top thread keeps coming out of the needle and/or breaking. Thoughts? Thanks for responding by the way.

Have you replaced the needle at all? The needle needs to be inserted with the indentation facing you. The thread is usually threaded through the needle from front to back on a domestic machine. Is yours looking like this. What is going wrong when you use the machine?

    Hya, well you have the needle inserted correctly then. Loosen off the top tension, this is the knob that the cotton wraps under on its way down to the needle. There is usually numbers on it. The cotton should feed through firmly but not tight when you tug it manually. Make sure there are no sharp bits on the plate where the needle goes through when picking up the bobbin cotton. If there are, just sand them down with a file. Also it might be worth purchasing a new bobbin case before you call for help.If this fails then you may need to call an engineer to have a look. Sometimes, I think it may be wear and tear. I hope you manage to sort it out, good luck!

SOURCE: needle threading

Well we have found out the problem but cannot fix it. The small metal hook that goes through the needle, is slightly bent to one side, and being such a small space in that area cannot really get to it to straighten it. How it got like that I cannot understand, with the metal so hard. So from now on will haves to thread by hand, such a pain.

Did you change to the narrow stitch finger? The narrow one is in the door of the machine where the other tools are -- a little square box on the left of where the needle box slides in. Sometimes that is needed instead of the normal one.

Caution: If you have never before changed it out, open the left door all the way and look and see where the stitch finger is coming out of before you remove it all the way. Refer to your manual.

SOURCE: will not pick up bobbin thread

Unusual for this machine. Check to be sure the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back of the machine. If it is, remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel slowly toward you and see if the point of the hook is above or below the eye of the needle when the hook point is aligned behind the needle. If the eye is above the point of the hook the machine is out of time and best taken to qualified technician.

Could be as simple as poor quality thread (not using MaxiLock thread), the needles not inserted properly (the left is slightly higher than the right), a missing stitch forming pin on the needle plate, the needle bar being too high or a looper timing issue.

As the needles raise, the upper looper should move to the right with the right needle tip slightly above the eye of the looper.

Skipping stitches


Skipped stitches
1. A bent or dull needle
2. The wrong needle for your fabric
knit fabrics require a jersey or ballpoint tip. Most wovens do well with a universal tip, and specialty fibers, like leather or metallic, usually require specific needles.
3. Incorrect machine threading
4. Unbalanced needle thread tension
Start by making relatively small changes and run a test stitch to evaluate the impact. If you need to adjust the tension dial using woven cotton fabric with good quality all-purpose thread and a new needle
5.check the needle is inserted correctly. The needle needs to be pushed as far up the needle shaft as possible. It's easy to insert the needle half way, clamp it down and think it is inserted correctly.
the flat part of the needle should be positioned towards the back. If the needle is not inserted correctly, it will not be able to pull up the bobbin thread and will cause skipped stitches.
6. If the suggestions don't help then it is time for a tune-up.

Bobbin thread breaks

1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly

2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder

3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly

4. Lower thread tension is two tight


The top thread breaks


1. the needle thread is not threaded properly


2. The needle thread tension is to tight


3. The needle is bent or blunt


4. The needle is incorrectly inserted


5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew


6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing


7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle


8. Try a different spool or cone of thread

Shredding thread


have you checked to see if the needle is inserted into the needle
holder correctly
have you checked to see if it's the correct size needle for the machine& for the fabric
check for burrs in the needle plate area & on the bobbin case
if these suggestions don't help then it's possible that the machine
needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop to see if the
machine could be slightly out of time.

What's wrong with the machine when the thread is skipping on top and bottom.


hi, it could be several things

damaged needle---try new needle

needle is not correctly inserted into machine----flat side of the needle goes to the back of the machine

wrong size needle for the fabric--choose a needle to suit thread & fabric

the wrong foot is attached--select correct foot

if you check all these things & they don't help then it's possible the machine is out of time

looping indicates that the tension is not correct best thing to do is get some remnant fabric to hoop up while you work at adjusting your tensions, it sounds like your tension is too loose and sometimes it can take more than one needle change needles like anything can be defective

My auto thread component is not egaging the thread down to the needle.


Need more information. Is the auto thread component going down to the needle? Is
it missing the needle hole? If this is the problem, make sure that the needle position is in the correct position by pushing the needle position button. This will bring the needle to correct height for the thread to be inserted. I had a problem similar and it was because the needle was not in the correct position. When using the thread insertion press it slowly and watch to see where the insertion part is going.

Machine not sewing


Make sure you have threaded the machine from right to left, it sounds like the needle thread is trapped under the lower looper thread and cannot form a stitch.........start the threading over from scratch like this:

  1. Lower Looper
  2. Upper Looper
  3. Left Needle
  4. Right Needle
Is there a diagram for how to thread on the inside of the door ?

Follow that slowly and carefully to make sure you have not missed any thread guides on the way, as each one needs to be followed through to ensure correct tension and thread progression.

If you are certain that all threaded correctly, did you have a fabric jam and pulled it loose ? If so, the timing may well be affected.

Post an update and we'll get this right.
