Question about Brother Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I just bought a Brother Innovis 1200 and it's jammed. I was sewing for a litle while and everything was great. Then it jammed and said something about the safety device was activated. I rerthreaed the machine,, checked the needle, bobbin, tension, etc. Everything the book said to do. If I try and sew the needle won't go down and the bobbin area just shakes and groans. I didn't see any thread stuck down there. The handwheel is verry tight and isn't much help moving the needle. What am I doing wrong?

Hi,
It could be a problem with the top tension, or could be a problem with a damaged bobbin case. If the first thread jam pulled the bobbin case out of place any, there is a chance the hook may have left a gouge in the bottom of the plastic bobbin case. It has to be very smooth, and any rough spot will cause problems.
remove the bobbin case, open the shuttle cover, remove the hook, then see if it will turn. Could be as simple as a thread lock in the shuttle area.
A drop of oil where metal moves against metal might help as well.
It really Sounds like a thread lock/jam.Usually a very tiny piece of thread will get caught in the hook area, between the bobbin case base, and the hook.
Sometimes turning the machine in reverse will start to help free it up, but it takes a very small amount of force to start the movement when the machine is froozen.
So ,If you are unable to turn the machine by hand, it could be as simple as a thread lock/jam in the bobbin case. Or it could be due to being gummed up, and needing a good cleaning, and applying new oil.

turn the sewing machine completely off
rethread the machine the top thread & bobbin, if possible use a different spool of thread for top & bobbin
