Hi, check list:

1 - Flat side of the needle is facing the back of the machine.

2 - Threaded machine with the presser foot up - always.

3 - Bobbin thread is feeding from the spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

Lower and raise the threaded needle, holding onto the end of the thread.

If this does not pull the bobbin thread up, the timing may need adjusting.

There is a graphic for doing this as sewusa.com or take it into the dealer for service.

Take care

My Futura 900 machine is locked up tighter than a drum. How can I fix it?


this should be in sewing not vacuums. Did you find the bit of needle that broke off? It might still be in causing problems. turn machine upside down to free any bits that might be hanging about.

Royal Series, Necchi, Model # 80331763 bobbin does not take up thread properly. No manual unsure if i am threading it correctly.


You can get Necchi instruction manual from Necchi website: http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Necchi_Sewing_Machines.htm". Makesure the needle is in the machine correctly- all the way up into the needlebar, make sure that it is threaded correctly, etc. If this all checks out ok,take the bobbin case out of the machine. There are two ears on either side ofthe bobbin case- turn the left one to the left and the right one to the right.Remove the silver ring, and inspect the piece of metal that the ring came off of(looks like a circle with the top cut off). You have to locate the hook whichis the piece that looks like a half moon inside the big round metal piece.Locate the tip of it, turn the hand wheel toward you until the needle is in thelowest position, at this point the tip of the hook should be flush with top ofthe left side of the cut off circle. Checkwhether underneath thread is looping on the fabric. If so then you've mis-threadedthe top, probably haven't raised the presser foot when threading so you can getthe upper thread into the tension. You need to thread the upper part with thepresser foot up. (You can put it down to thread the needle.)

Not picking up thread can be several issues, like bobbin is miswound, bobbincase isn't snapped in properly, you're using the wrong type bobbin, machine isout of time, needle is bent or burred, machine is dirty and in need of dustbunny eviction and a little oil but most of the time the issue is once againmisthreading: sewing machine needles have a front and a back and they have tobe placed in the needle holder correctly. In that case your manual is needed, take all the thread offthe machine (yes, spool off the spool pin, bobbin out of the bobbin case), pullthe needle plate and clean your machine thoroughly, using brush and vacuum (notcompressed air) and oiling per the instruction manual. Put it all backtogether, putting in a 80/12 needle, correctly oriented. Hang on to theneedle thread when you fetch up the bobbin thread.

Each and every seam you start is going to be done this way:
1) Pull the tail of the top and bobbin thread behind the presser foot
2) Put the work under the needle and use the hand wheel to lower the needleinto the work
3) Drop the presser foot
4) Holding the thread tails behind the foot, take a couple of stitches.
5) Drop the thread tails and sew normally. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Thread jamming on Viking 5710 sewing machine


Check to see if the bobbin is wound in the right direction. Check to see if the bobbin case area is free of lint and debris. Has it been a while since you last used it? Check to make sure it is threaded correctly by following the arrows if this is a newer sewing machine. Last. Thread direction through the needle can be wrong. Vikings usually thread front to back. If you recently changed a broken needle, it could have been replaced in the wrong direction. make sure the flat edge of the needle is fed into the corrosponding flat area inside the needle case. I hope this helps you!

Wife has Kenmore 385.12314. Regular use. Normally cleaned and oiled. Needle goes down, but bobbin thread doesn't catch. Needle at bottom of stroke and "half moon" is on top, needle...


Make sure the needle is in the machine correctly- all theway up into the needle bar, make sure that it is threaded correctly, etc. Ifthis all checks out ok, take the bobbin case out of the machine. There are twoears on either side of the bobbin case- turn the left one to the left and theright one to the right. Remove the silver ring, and inspect the piece of metalthat the ring came off of (looks like a circle with the top cut off). You haveto locate the hook which is the piece that looks like a half moon inside thebig round metal piece. Locate the tip of it, turn the hand wheel toward youuntil the needle is in the lowest position, at this point the tip of the hookshould be flush with top of the left side of the cut off circle. If this is notso, your machine needs to be re-timed. If that is the case, I would need to seea picture of the bottom of the machine so that I am able to determine whatneeds adjusting. Make sure you're turning the hand wheel in the proper direction-- the proper direction isthe one that will feed fabric forward under the presser foot.

Make sure the needle is facing in the correct direction -- stitches don't form,or skip badly when the needle is turned around.

Put the bobbin in the bobbin case (right way around) leaving a 2-3" tail.

Thread the top of the machine correctly, leaving a 3-4" tail afterthreading the needle.

Hang on to the end of the upper thread, and use the hand wheel to drop theneedle... continue to turn the hand wheel to raise the needle. Pull on the endof the needle thread and a loop of bobbin thread should come up.

Hold BOTH threads behind the presser foot when starting a seam to preventthread jams.
Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

In my Singer Sewing Machine model 1014 the Needle Won't Pick Up Bobbin Thread. Could you please help. Thanks


There could be several things causing this.
First, be sure the bobbin is in the bobbin case correctly. There is usually a line diagram showing the correct placement or you can check the owner's manual.
Second, make sure your needle is inserted correctly. If it is not completely set in the housing, this can prevent the bobbin thread from being caught by the hook. The groove in the needle should be ffacing toward you to assure that the thread interacts with the hook.
Third, be certain the upper threading is correct...passing through all thread guides and correctly through tension and take up lever.
Finally, make sure the bobbin case is free of lint. The machine brush that came with the machine will clean this area well.
I hope one of these suggestions helps you solve your problem. If so, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

Thread accumulating in the sewing machine from the under reel


I hope it is the area under the needle and around the bobbin that you are refering to. In that case check the bobbin tension and that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder.

My Kenmore sewing machine timing has gotten off. I am sewing a big upholstery project and it starting bunching thread from the bobbin. The thread is so heavy that I had to put some pressure just to get...


Hello

Disassemble your bobbin case which is realy quite easy, clean thoroughly with a brush and air, paying particular attention to any rust that may have formed, and any thread that may have weazeled it's way into small but very incremental areas of your case.

Make sure your needle is not in backwards.The rounded side should be on the outside

. If threading is correct and your tension is properly adjusted , then check the hook for scratches. If you have ever hit the hook with a needle, it will be scarred and will catch the thread every time the upper thread passes around the bobbin case. the hook is the sharp point on the shuttle that holds the bobbin case. If it is scratched, polish it smooth with VERY fine sand paper

Make sure that your thread arm that rises and falls, constantly having tension running through it and that it is in fact staying in place.

Alternate between the metal and plastic bobbins - sometimes the plastic bobbins tend to chip

My bobbin thread forms massive amounts of loops and a knoty mess. I have tried adjusting the tension and changing the needle. What can I do?elna 3005


Hi you just have to open up the bobbin part with a screw driver, take out the bobbin and bobbin case, use a small lint brush clean the whole area.insert the bobbin back once you have finish. There must be a lot of lint in the area it can cause the problem you have.

Sewing machine won't pick up bobbin thread


open the bobbin case and see if the hook is turning, if it is it is just a timing problem with the hook and needle, if it isn't tuning you may have a broken gear or timing belt.....It eill need to be looked at or adj by someone who repairs them....Daniel
