Question about Sewing Machines
Everthing is moving freely, but its not catching the bottom thread at from the bobbin. Almost like the needle isn't going down far enough, but I checked that, changed needles, bobbins... what do i do next?
Re-timing is a possible solution but there is a couple of other possible causes. Bent needles are the first thing to check (but you said you changed needles). Another cause in this machine is wear. This machine has been around long enough for the guides for the needle shaft to have worn. You can check this by grasping the needle clamp screw and pushing it front to back. If there is more play than about half the thickness of you thread you're probably going to drop stitches. To verify this is the problem take a piece of string and loop it around the needle clamp screw and pull backwards on it while sewing. If your machine stops dropping stitches you've found your problem and need to take your machine for service.
