Question about Sewing Machines
Clean and lubricate according to the user's manual.
If this is a newer electronic or computorized model, lubricating has to be done by a sewing machine service tech.
When threading, make sure the presser foot is up as this impacts the seating of the thread into the tension control.
Make sure the needle is installed per the manual - this may be with the flat side facing the back or to the side - again according to the manual for your brand and model.
Check the bobbin to be sure the thread is feeding from spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides, again - the manual.
If you do all the steps and the stitching is loose and gnarly, the machine may need the timing adjusted.
You can give this a try, but you may be better off taking it in for service.
How to adjust the timing can be found at sewusa.com in the repair section.
