Question about Necchi 4575 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Necchi 4575 Whenever I start to sew, the machine does a few stitches & then the thread comes out of the take-up lever. Then everything balls up underneath. I have re-threaded & re done the bobbin and it keeps happening.

Tiptronic 2040 won't move forward to sew. Seems to be problem with bobbin? Thread "balls up" at bobbin.

Hello Day Fegely
Thread balling-up in the bobbin area indicates that the upper thread (the one going through the needle) is the one doing the "balling". Check that the upper thread is threaded through all the thread paths ... this specific issue seems to be due to the thread not threaded through the "take up lever" ... that is the 'thingy' that goes up and down really fast as you are sewing.

Happy Stitching

After sewing a few stitches, the machine gets jammed. the top stitch looks fine, but underneath there's a ton of thread all bunched up (top spool thread)

What you are seeing is called "bird's nesting." There are two main reasons for "bird's nesting."
The first one is the thread not between the tension disks. That allows the thread to be pulled from the spool instead of pulling the thread tight from underneath. Always make sure to always put up your presser foot before you thread the tension disks. I also check the thread after I finish to make sure the top thread has good tension on it before sewing.
The second reason is the thread is not being pulled by the take up lever. Make sure you see it being pulled by the take up lever before you start sewing. If not, rethread it.

Good luck.

I can sew a few stitches did it all balls up at

Thread balling up in the bobbin case usually indicates that the TOP thread is mis-threaded (usually at the take up lever). Check with your manual for proper threading path.

Singer 4411 sews fine forward and reverse in straight stitch, in zigzag top thread looks fine on top, but all loopy underneath and will only reverse stitch 1 or 2 zigs or zags

check that the bobbin underneath has the same thread as the upper bobbin and that you push all the way on the lever when sewing back and also, go full speed as this happened to me and that was my mistake. Hope this will help you :)

I have dv9117, whenever I use the special stitches or even just the zigzag, it just keep doing straight stitch. Did all the cleaning, re-threading, taking out the bobbin and rewound bobbin thread. Nothing...

aside from cleaning, with a thread bunching problem it's always good to change the needle and make sure the top thread has not come off the thread take up lever and make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case.
as for the zig zag stitches, it sounds like a gear or cam could be damaged or worn.
if someone brought me a sewing machine with the same problem, the first thing I would check for is a damaged or worn gear..

The top stitch is fine but underneath the thread is all balled up what might be the problem

When the thread is bunched up underneath, the problem is often in the top tension. The top thread is pulled through to the bottom but because there is no tension, it isn't pulled back up correctly, creating large loops underneath.

Try making sure that the thread is lying correctly between the tension disks (you can just see them inside the machine on the downward thread path). Lifting the presser foot lever (behind the machine) opens up the disks and lets the thread slide between them more easily. They will close again when you put the presser foot down to sew. Make sure you always thread the machine with the presser foot lever up and tension disks open to avoid this problem in future.

If the thread is running correctly between the tension disks, just check that you that there's no fluff caught in there, holding them open. Give it a blow, or run a folded pice of fabric through there.

Viking Designer 1 balleds / Birdnest / issues after repaired from Husk service center in midwest - replaced thread needle and adjusted tension .. freequilting and embroidery situations

birdsnest refers to a mess of thread on the underside of fabric when you start sewing (after a few stitches all looks good). if this is the case and it is happening during embroidery, switch off jump stitch thread cutting.

if it happens at the start of normal sewing, either hold your needle thread when you start sewing or make sure the needle thread is under the presser foot and held by the presser foot when you start sewing. this way you will have an inch or so of thread on top of your fabric which you can trim instead of a mess underneath.

if there is a mess underneath for more than first few stitches, either your check spring in the needle tension area is set incorrectly, or your needle tension is set too loose (adjustable in sevice menu by tech only) or there is foreign matter caught in tension assembly preventing proper tension.

Sewing machine either breaks thread or comes unthreaded every time i try to sew.

Your threading is not right, totally remove your thread and rethread according to the manual directions and dvd. If, you still have problems call Singer at 1-800-4singer
