Self winding bobbin

I just can't figure this out. I put the manuel selector on the choice that shows a bobbin and straight stitch in the largest stitch size. Would you please help me? Thanks!

I think you need to push the bobbin winder (with your bobbin on it) towards the handwheel. Press the foot pedal and it should begin winding. If this doesn't solve your problem, post back with more details of what you've done and the kind of problem you are having.
As a last resort, go to Sears and let them show you how to wind a bobbin.

My Bernina 830 will not switch stitches. It says the number but shows straight stitch and sews straight stitch


Is it a new 830 computerized model or the older 830 Record mechanical?

If it is the 830 Record, it needs oiling--1-2 drops of good quality sewing machine oil (specifically concentrate on the stitch selector lever and oil the metal parts that move against other metal parts) Do NOT oil the cams, plastic gears, any rubber parts, ie belts, bobbin winder wheel.

CAn a brother lock 9290 sewing machine do just a straight stitch?


YES. ALL SEWING MACHINES DO STRAIGHT STITCH. EVEN IF YOU WOULD SET THE STITCH SELECTOR TO A ZIGZAG YOU COULD STILL SEW STRAIGHT STITCH BY SETTING THE WIDTH TO ZERO. OTHERWISE YOU COULD JUST USE THE STRAIGHT STITCH CHOICE.

I can't move the upper stitch pattern selctor to the K position.


The machine has a series of cams inside and a cam follower which slides up and down the cam stack. The problem most likely is the cam follower is not moving back far enough to allow the lever to move. This can be adjusted but it is difficult to do if you are not familiar with sewing machine mechanics. please follow my link. I may be able to guide you.

After I "undid" winding my bobbin, the electronic display still showed the symbol for winding bobbin and the machine will only sew straight. None of the other buttons like back stitch or change stitches...


are you sure you've moved the bobbin winding mechanism back to the right spot? if its still pushed over against the bobbin spool holder it may be stopping the normal functions from working. If that isn't the problem then it may be something for the tech at the Elna dealers.

Drop in bobbin on singer 6234 will not thread empty Bobbiin thread winds around underside od bobbin


try using a different bobbin and see if that helps, if it doesn't
then the machine may need to be checked to see if there is
something wrong with the hook and the hook race.

Electrical problem?


Neither the needle up/down or the LED for the stitch selector will work if the bobbin winding pin/holder is pushed to the right (meaning pushed into the winding position). If you accidentally left the winding pin/holder pushed over, you will lose the functions of both the LEAD and the needle up/down button! (Neither of these functions can work while in bobbin winding mode!)

Bobbin thread issue on new machine


Have you got the stitch width selector on zero ? If not, it may be wanting to sew a small zig zag........if that is OK, ....


Make up some samples of the problems, call the dealer and arrange to take it back to show them the results and either have it adjusted, or show you what needs to be set where to achieve the results you need...........it is under warantee, and you should expect it to function correctly.

I would not advise you fiddle with anything other than tensions and stitch selector on such a new machine.

Ask if you can have a 15min familiarisation lesson on the machine........we actually offer 3 x 30min free lessons on the use of a new machine so our customers can get the maximum benefit from their purchase.

It has proven to be a good business decision, as we get fewer frustrated phone calls and folks actually go and use the machines properly from day one.

Janome straight stitch loose


I don't know if this is the right answer for any of you, but thought I'd put my 2 cents worth in. Often this can be the bobbin in backwards. It needs to unwind a certain way depending on the machine. I've heard a phrase for this: Mind your p's and q's which means some wind off to the right like a q, others to the left like a p. Mine has to unwind one way then be slipped backwards into a little slot or it does that loose bottom thread looping and bunching someone here mentioned. It seems everytime I get that problem I rethread the top thread 100 times before it clicks again and I remember it could be the bobbin thread. Either your manual will tell you the correct way, or you could experiment and try one or the other. Once you figure out whether you're a p or a q, mark it on your machien somewhere to remind yourself.

Good Luck and Happy Sewing!
