I had a friend who used to use nylon thread. He had been using a number 16 needle and heavy duty thread(top spool only, reg. thread in bobbin) On the first vinyl, it worked well. The second vinyl was causing the bobbin thread to "bunch". Through process of elimination, we got things working right. I had seen him use a smaller needle(size 14) and change to regular thread both top spool and bobbin.

Hi I have a Janome 419S or 423S, the problem seems to be my hook race unit keeps getting loose and then the thread jams up. What can be done? Please


A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in thehook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towardsyou (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. Alwaysturn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you(clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam yourmachine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position beforeyou start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam yourmachine in the bobbin case. If youhave an older model sewing machine with a shuttle hook, then you can alsofollow these: 1. Disconnect the sewing machine from any power source.Loosen the thumb screw on the left side of the sewing machine body and removethe cover to expose the needle bar. This is the shaft that extends down andthat you attach a needle to for sewing. Open the shuttle race and remove the bobbinand bobbin case. 2. Turn the hand wheel toward you until the needle hasreached the lowest point of the stroke. The hook should be at the top of itsstroke inside the shuttle race. Loosen the set screw for the needle bar on theupper part of the machine, this is located on the needle bar bushing (thecollar that the needle bar slides through when making a stitch). The needle barshould slide easily up and down. 3. Turning the wheel again, adjust the position of the tipof the needle so that the upper part of the needle eye is just below the bottomedge of the hook inside the shuttle race. Once in position, re-tighten the setscrew on the needle bar bushing. Do not allow the needle bar to slip whiledoing this. 4. Replace the bobbin and bobbin case and close the shuttlerace. Thread and plug in your machine. Using a sizable scrap of cloth, sew aseam to check to see if there are any skips in the stitching. If there arestill skips re-adjust the timing again until you can sew without any skipped stitches. 5. When proper timing has been achieved replaces the coveron the needle bar and tighten the thumb screw. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

The tension of the thread on top and bottom is not equal. How do you adjust the bottom thread to make it equal to the top?


Hello

First locate the sewing machine tension gauge. Sometimes its called a knob or a button or found on your Touch Screen if you have a computerized machine. Refer to your manual if you can't find it.

Either your needle thread is too tight or your bobbin thread is too loose.

First check that your bobbin thread hasn't slipped out of its tension spring in the bobbin case.

If the bobbin thread is correctly threaded through the tension spring, then decrease your needle tension by 1 number. Test by stitching several inches on your small quilt sandwich. Keep decreasing the tension until no needle thread is visible on the quilt top.

If sewing machine tension problems occur during the middle of a quilting session, again, first refer to the checklist above. Once you're satisfied that your sewing machine is threaded properly and your needle is not the culprit, then adjust the tension as outlined above.

If you have just started testing your quilting thread choices and you are using different threads for the needle and bobbin, you will in all probability make adjustments to your tension.

Make a small quilt sandwich from the materials used in your quilt to make this sandwich. It doesn't have to be pretty or even pin basted. It should be just big enough to test some of the stitching you plan to do on your quilt.

I have needles snapping and bobbin tangle


Try to repair in this order.

1) Your machine likely needs oil. Especially put a few drops of oil on the outside edge of your bobbin holder.

2) Try replacing your needle if you have some spares. If you are using a decorative thread (metalized) use a needle with a teflon lining on the eye (called metallic thread needle).

3) Try buying a better quality thread. Do not use generic thread in a sewing machine (i.e. "made in cheap country" with no brand name)

I cant seem to find a manual or even a threading diagram I am disabled so $$ is very hard to come by I was given the pfaff 130 machine just no manual please help. Thank you Karen V


I searched the web but only found stuff for sale and the Pfaff web site di not show any link to manuals. You might try joining this group on Yahoo. I'm not a member so I can't say this group will have a manual but since they are devoted to the old Pfaff sewing machines they may have it. I think you may find a lot of support at the very least. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/oldpfaffpforum/
hope this helped

Janome 6600 sewing machine. bobbin thread is gumming up underneath on a swimsuit knit type material (4 layers). Brand new machine had 1 1/2 weeks. Sometimes material goes down into the bobbin area jammed...


Make sure you're using a polyester thread (I use maxilock serger thread) then a stretch needle, and hold the tails of your thread until you get started into the seam so the fabric cannot push down into the opening on the throat plate.

Also, a small zigzag stitch (about 1.8 - 2.0 wide) is good to use on lycra as that will allow the fabric to stretch after the garment is made.

This is stuff I've used with my 6500P and other previous Janome machines in making Ice Skating outfits.
