Question about Sewing Machines

Brand new machine. Was testing it out. I had a thread jam up. Cleaned a wad of thread out of the bobbin mechanism, but now the needle hits the bottom of the bobbin mechanism. Replaced the needle, no joy.

Hi,

PLEASE do not attempt to repair this! This is a timing problem and needs to be addressed by a sewing machine technician. I can not say this strongly enough, I am saving you a major headache and the distinct possibility of having to replace the COMPLETE sewing machine. i have had way to many sewing machines come across my service center that people have tried to repair and ended up with a "boat anchor' instead of sewing machine!

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Bobbin case jammed, cannot see thread, how do I release mechanism?


Remove the needle. Then, remove the needle plate and try to remove the bobbin case from the machine. Otherwise, very carefully snip thread wads with small scissors and remove the clipped thread pieces with tweezers.

I'm having a problem threading my brother sewing machine model XL 3010


1. Clean up any loose thread in the bobbin area.
2. Pull on the bobbin thread while it is out. It should give a tension that is equal to the top tension of three. You'll have to approximate. Adjust the screw tension on the bobbin. It is the screw nearest to the thread exit hole on the side.
3. Put it back in.
4. Now, the top tension should be at about three. If it still allows a little wad on the bottom of the fabric you can adjust the top tension by tightening a small amount and monitor each time you adjust. The wad should go away.

What does it mean when the motor jams and the needle is hitting the bobbin case?


Make sure the needle is put in the right direction and a new one. Also, check the bobbin to make sure it is one that fits properly.

Your sewing machine is likely to be out of timing. This means the needle goes under the throat plate to pick up the bottom thread but it is going at the wrong time. The bottom and top have to be synchronized. This is a problem that usually requires the replacement of gears. Anyway, it isn't a home fix problem.

Needle Jams In Bobbin Case Area pfaff 1540


First, make sure there is no debris and scraps of thread in the bobbin area. I'm sure you did that already. I assume you also tried it with another thread just to be sure. I would suspect that the timing went out of whack. The machines depend on a synchronization between the needle motion and the bobbin action underneath. I once had a Singer that slipped and I had to reset the timing. If it is the timing synch problem then it would happen consistently and not work sometimes and then not work other times. G

Thread jamming in bobbin mechanism, breaking upper thread and jamming bobbin.


Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint

Have a brand new Singer 1507 that keeps jamming the bobbin thread. Have followed threading and winding bobbin instructions closely, but am still having problems with the bobbin thread jamming after 1-2...


I would try adjusting the tension on the machine - this sometimes causes the bobbin thread to jam while sewing. Re thread the entire machine including the top thread. Also it is recommended to use new thread as old thread can ball up after time. If no luck I would call the store you purchased the machine from.

Bobbin thread not being picked up


This unfortunately sounds dismally like a timing problem. When a sewing machine makes a sudden mechanical stop as when a needle is bent slightly and hits the needle plate, sometimes the other machine bits revolve along further causing the needle to be introduced into the hook either to early or to late to catch the thread.

To test this, remove the thread, the needle plate and and the bobbin case. Replace the needle with a brand new one. Yes, again. Revolve the machine by hand via the balance wheel and watch closely as the needle goes into the hook region allow it to it move down and then just start to move up. If the tip of the hook is not pretty close to right behind the needle than it is more than likely a timing problem.

If the tip of the hook is behind the needle in the scarf (the slight hollow on the back of the needle) than it is not timing. Thread the machine normally like it is and watch what happens as you manually turn the machine via the balance wheel. The thread should catch and be pulled around the hook and let go.

Try this and then either you figured it out the problem or contact me again. Either way please vote. Thanks
