Bobbin/raceway and timing problem; Necchi 3577

I was sewing a blanket and ran out of thread in th bobbin, I removed th bobbin and threaded it and put it back together as I have done a few times before raising th needle as high as possible. It seems to fit in there but when I test it to begin sewinging it backs a rattling sound. The needle then gets caught( but doesnt break) in the mechanism when the it goes down to cathch th thread from th bobbin. It might be th timing, I was told that I could adjust it my self with some patience. On occation th bobin mechanism will pop out before or as th needle gets caught. I reaaly like this machine and it has only been used a few times so its is literally like brand new. From what I gather th machine has to be turned on its side to adjustr that section of the machine. I dont know much about sewing and have done this more or less by trial and error so if I could get some detailed instuction on this matter would be great. I am waiting for my instuction manuel to get here but I dont remember anything like this in th instuction manuel.

Re: bobbin/raceway and timing problem; Necchi 3577

Ok.....without the bobbin case in and a fresh needle in, turn the machine to the side and turn the crank wheel counter clockwise, the hook of the machine should bypass the cusp of the needle, thats the part of needle that is by the eye and curves in alittle, if it is not the timing is off, try to adjust this by adjusting the needle bar, this is not a easy easy repair but takes patients, im assuming that, thats where it was thrown off timing

My pfaff 4.2 keeps saying remove thread jam under the stitch plate. I have cleared everything several times but it keeps coming up on the screen.

Candace, while not familiar with the 4.2, I've had thread jams on my trusty old Pfaff. I hope this helps!

If you are able to totally remove the bobbin cover/stitch plate, please do so. Ideally, there will be one or two screws holding it in place.

remove the bobbin

carefully inspect the bobbin housing; thread likes to hide behind the housing. If you find some thread, use a tweezers to remove it.

If no thread is found, see if there are one or two screws holding the bobbin holder/raceway in place, or just a lever. Try to remove the bobbin holder, carefully noting what the orientation is of all pieces is (using a cellphone to capture pictures of before and after is great!).

Clear any threads from the raceway, carefully re-assemble everything, test and good luck!!!

Help! I'm having problems with my Necchi Lydia 3. Firstly when threading up, the threaded needle refuses to draw up the bobbin thread. I've followed the instructions and the needle comes in and out but...

try a different bobbin
make sure the bobbin in turned the right way in the bobbin case
also the machine may have a timing problem, and having it checked to would be a good idea.

I have a necchi sewing machine. How and where do you insert the bobbin in model 525fa

if you have a snap in sewing table remove it first
at the bottom in front of the needle plate area is a bobbin case door
when you open it there is the bobbin case & also should be the feed dogs
always keep the bobbin area clean of lint or loose threads
take note of how the bobbin case is inserted in the bobbin area,, see where the thread tail is at on the bobbin case
then make sure the bobbin is wound correctly or it can cause sewing problems
reinsert the bobbin into the bobbin case the same way it's removed

I also have a necchi sewing machine, the base of your is like the base of mine, if you need a picture of inserting the bobbin,, send me a comment with your email address & I will send you a picture of the threading the bobbin case & inserting it

Top thread will not pick up the bobbin thread

Timing is off, is is possible that you broke a needle or sewed over a pin. timing needs to be re set by a professional.
