Some of the older model sewing machines do require that the eye face toward the right. This would be the side of the needle that has the long groove for the thread to follow down the shaft and through the eye.

I cannot find a manual for a Delta sewing machine, so I would try the needle both directions.

Can you open the bobbin area (bottom spool) and watch to see if the needle and bobbin thread are connecting?

How to change my spool pin


Some spool pins pull out, others have skrew threads on the bottom, yet others need to have the spool casing removed. Depends on your sewing machine.

Search the internet for:

Make + Model + the word "spool pin"

or contact manufacturer support.

When the needle is not pulling the bottom tread


is this the first time you use a sewing machine? if you are very familiar with the way the thread is pulled out of the bottom spool, I'd say you need a technician, here is how to install bottom spool in case you don't know. after filling spool, pull thread out through the small gap on the side of the spool holder, then holding the small arm on the holder outward insert the spool holder in to the socket and release after fully inserted. after that the thread should come out the top by manually turning the machine to lower needle

After starting to sew the sewing machine stop. It seems to ne getting tight up at the top of the machine. It is threaded correctly. Do you have any suggestions?


This is not what you want to hear but... recheck the threading yet again. This time totally unthread it and start again. Look at the spool that holds the thread and where the thread is coming off of the spool itself. Look to see if the little notch you take the thread out of when you first open a new spool is catching the thread as it turns on the spool. If there's a possibility that is happening make sure that end of the spool is at the top. Sometimes the thread will get catch and therefore refuse to move when it is on the bottom side of the spool.

Also check to make sure the thread isn't wrapped around any of the guides and once again check to see that it is threaded correctly.

If it isn't just the thread breaking but the machine itself seeming to lock up and not move then you need to take it in for servicing.

I want to use a metallic thread for decorative sewing but the thread keeps breaking , can anyone help. I am new to the machine & embroidery thread


Three things to check:

1.You need to use a needle specifically made for metallic thread. I believe the eye of the needle is square and the thread will pass through it easier, and will not be shredded which can be a cause of breaking.

2. Be sure to check your tension to make sure it is not too tight on the top. Test your stitches, checking both top and bottom tension.

3. The thread should come off the spool straight, not twisting. The thread cone should be standing up straight and the spool should twirl to release the thread. If the spool is not moving and the thread unwinds from the stationary spool, then the thread is twisting and that can cause the breakage as well.

Sewing machine grabs fabric and won't let go


I dont think the top thread spool feed is the problem, I sounds like the upper thread tension is set at too low a number. Normally on that model it should be set at 3 to 6.

My prdect is fashionaire 2380.when i'm sew somthing it's break the thread,and it's stack


Check the thread spool to see if there is a nick where the thread is catching. If there is, you can smooth away the nick with an emery board, or just flip the spool so the thread is feeding from the bottom of the spool.

Sometimes the thread feeds too quickly from the spool and puddles around the spool pin. A thread net (can be purchased online or at a sewing machine dealer) can eliminate this.

Check the threading to be sure it is correct - always thread to top thread with the presser foot up.

Check the bobbin to be sure the thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the correct guides.

Refer to your manual for threading and bobbin position.

I have a Simplicity Embrodery Machine, and the needle keeps breaking. I have checked the bobbin, changed the bobbin, changed the thread, changed the pattern. It sews for about 5 seconds and then breaks.


It could be the thread is hanging up and breaking the needle.

Check the thread spool for nicks - turn the spool so the thread is feeding from the bottom of the spool.

Watch the thread as the machine stitches, if the thread is pooling at the base of the spool, use a thread net on the spool.

Open the needle plate and remove the bobbin and bobbin case - clean out any lint or thread snips that may have accumulated there - do this often to help the machine work as it should.

Hi I have threaded the machine several times and the thread keeps snapping as soon as I start sewing. I've re-threaded the bobbin and replaced the needle and it still continues to go wrong. Help!


You may still be threading the machine wrong.

Do you have the manual to look at. If you still think that everything is threaded right. Try looking at the spool of thread, on every spool there is a small slice to hold the thread when not in use. Make sure when you put the thread on the spool holder, put the slice side on first so that it is torward the back, Also when you put the spool cover on make sure it is not to big or small for the spool.

After all this;
After threading the machine and ready, before you begin to sew, lift the foot up with the lever and pull the threads from under the needle they should pull freely, if either the top or bottom thread feel tight you can tell which thread is getting caught on something. Re-check the threads.

Also make sure that the thread is going through the tension disks correctly, they go between the dsks not behind, if this machine has the down and around the tension make sure it is done right.

Hope this helps

Spool is bouncing on spool pin


Get a stand alone spool holder, sometimes the spool pins arent high enough to support the thread or you can try a thread sock
