The mechanism where the bobbin sits moves when sewing so it jams the thread underneath in the bobbin area


the bobbin sits in what's called the bobbin case,, the bobbin case needs to be checked to see if there is something wrong with it and if it needs to be replaced or if the hook and hook race may need to be adjusted.

I have a janome 11000. it jammed while embroidering a project. The underneath was rats nest and my needle bent and gouged up my bobbin case...Replaced the case and now the machine makes a clicking noise...


sometimes when a needle gets bent, it can cause the sewing machine to need a adjustment by a technican.
sometimes a jam can be caused by the thread coming off the thread take up lever
or the bobbin is turned the wrong way in the bobbin case
or the bobbin was not thread correctly

Machine jams after 4 or 5 stitches. Bobbin thread locks up.


try these suggestions
change the needle
make sure the thread doesn't come off the thread take up lever--this
can jam the machine

can cause problems if the bobbin is turned the wrong way

make sure there are no burrs in the bobbin area or on the needle

The needle jams when i start sewing


Could be threaded wrong - check manual for proper threading
Needle could be bent - check and replace if needed
Needle plate could be damaged - see if any burrs are on it if so take to service dealer and have removed
Bobbin could be wound wrong - check manual
Bobbin could be bent - if so replace.

The bobbin case sounds loose and the thread jams with the fabric and everything gets stuck.


That use to concern me too! I thought it signalled a problem, but my bobbin case has always been loose and that was not what was causing my thread and fabric jam. Usually what causes the jam is an incorrectly wound bobbin, wrong needle or old needle, old thread, or a slightly warped bobbin that is hard to see/detect. Change everything out--needle, thread, bobbin...this usually does the trick!

The bobbin is getting caught and needle is jamming


This sounds like there is cotton stuck in the bobbin holder. Check it thoroughly. Take the bobbin out and turn the wheel to lower the needle a few times. This will show up any thread caught. Pull it out gently. You may have to perservere to get it all out.

PLEASE GIVE ME THE PRODUCT # FOR BOBBINS FOR WHITE MACHINE MODEL # 2037. THANK YOU


Rebecca, I don't know if you ever received a solution, but after my experience with my White 2038, I would advise you to do exactly what you said. "Throw it out". I've struggled for a week with a new machine, found parts missing after opening the box and generally feel ripped off. I am throwing mine out! I purchased a Singer yesterday and it is sewing beautifully with no problems.

Good luck.

Not sewing - jamming


Could it be that the feed dogs are down? I also have the 15358 and when I opened the bobbin area to clean it, I had this problem. Apparently, when you open the clips around the outside of the casing, it pushes the lever that adjusts the feed dogs to the right (lowering them). I didn't even realize it at first. Check your manual for adjusting this lever to raise the feed dogs. That might solve your problem.
