    Thanks for the advice. I cannot move the needle bar up or down manually....it seems to be stuck. When i try to turn the balance wheel- it still wont move.

    Thanks so much you are a genius... I followed your direction and discovered a piece of thread and once removed the balance wheel does turn and the machince is now operational.

    With Best wishes

    Can you move the needle bar (where the needle goes) up and down manually? Or does it seem to be stuck? What happens when you turn the balance wheel?

Okay, so there is a jam. Take out the bobbin case and the hook. Remove the bobbin from the bobbin case if you haven't already.

Try and turn balance wheel now. if it is still stuck than you have a pretty big problem. Chances are the timing has been thrown so far that something is bumping something else and keeping it from revolving. Repair probably required.

If you're really lucky and the balance wheel does turn do this:
Clean bobbin case and hook gently with a tooth bush or some such. Make sure the bobbin doesn't have a bit of needle jammed in it. Examine the bobbin case and hook, looking for any damage. There has to be something preventing the normal revolutions of the machine from happening.
Good Luck and if this was helpful please vote for me. Thanks

The underside is sewing with loops and then gets jammed..?


first try pulling all the threads out and rethreading. look for anything jamming the guides. try threading the top of the machine then cutting at the cotton real and pulling the thread out towards the needle, in the direction the thread should run. A good clean would not hurt.

Bobbin thread is phooey and loopy


Is it looping on the bottom of the fabric? If so it it probably a top tension issue, try this this quick test.

With the pressure foot up, you should be able to pull the thread easily right before the eye of the needle and when you put the foot down you should then feel a fair bit of tension on the top thread.

If you do not get tension with the foot down, check this:

-set the top tension dial to 5
-raise the pressure before threading the machine
-"floss" the thread by holding the thread as it comes off the spool with your right hand and holding the thread right before the needle. Make sure to do that with the pressure foot up. What happens is sometimes the thread doesn't go into the tension discs all the way due to lint or something else.

hope that helps,
Chris

I am a sewer so I can explain to you what to do you lift it up your needle might break. If so you twist the thing and take it out. Then peplace it with the other needle that fixes it.
