Needle Sticks - Huskystar E10

I just bough this machine... and the needle seems to stick. I don't sew, but my 16-year-old is learning at school. 2 weeks ago, the needle broke and was replaced. Now, today, the needle stuck twice. The first time my daughter was able to get it out. The second time, she called me in. The needle was wedged in the machine... and none of the wheels turned. I had her cut both threads and remove the bobin. Everything there was free. However, the needle was jammed into the fabric... probably to the bobin casing... and stopped everything. Help? Is there something wrong with the machine? Are we doing something wrong? She loves sewing... and is beginning to make great progress. Thanks.

    New machine and within 24 hrs was having major problems. The needle does stick once in a while, gets jammed so bad the wheel won't turn and I have to release the pressure foot, clip the threads and take the needle out. Sometimes can't even sew a straight line and "BANG" the thread will mangle underneath and sometimes break. Took it back to where I bought it and they told me I couldn't return it--they don't do refunds! Can't leave mine and use another one until they fix mine either. Sounds like I've been scammed or defrauded with a lemon-faulty machine they don't want back!

When it feels like the needle is jammed, open the bobbin cover and release the two black retaining levers, one on either side of the bobbin case. The hook cover that is visible will be released. If the machine turns by hand smoothly, you may have a piece of the broken needle, or just a piece of thread stuck behind the hook or hook cover causing the bind. This problem will sometime make you swear that the needle is stuck in something because it will usually bind while the needle is down in the fabric.

I have just been given a singer melodie 40.When I start to sew, material is stopped by bobbin? Bobbin is breaking off bits of thread underneath?


Try a brand new needle. Make sure the thread is suitable to the needle and fabric you are using. AVOID old or bargain bin threads. Spend an extra dollar or two for good thread.
All About Needles

Check that there are no loose threads stuck in the upper thread path, ie the tension disk.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread. Verify that the thread path is correct. Mis-threading will invariably cause broken thread.

Clean out the bobbin area & feed dogs of any lint and loose threads. Check that the bobbin has been installed & threaded correctly and turning the right direction in the bobbin case.

Manually rotate the handwheel one turn until the upper thread grabs the the bobbin thread. Pull it the rest of the way to the top. When beginning to stitch, start slowly and gently hold both thread tails in your left hand until it has made a couple of stitches.

How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

If you have a manual, make sure you follow the maintenance tips. If the machine needs oiling, be sure to follow the instructions using only fresh good quality sewing machine oil. Most machines that have been given as gifts from a sewist's stash may not have been maintained regularly.

If it still does not stitch properly, take it for service. It could have a timing issue, ie the needle arrives at the bobbin at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread.

Have a Kenmore 1357. Was working perfectly until I began sewing satin ruffle onto fleece. Seems to siege. Needle won't even try to go into material. Just goes to top of presser foot and stops.


Is it a mechanical machine (not computerized)? Did you oil the internal metal parts that rub against other metal parts? With an older mechanical machine, frequently the old oil turns to goo and sticks things rather than lubricates. Use only fresh good quality sewing machine oil. Hand rotate the wheel and place 2 drops of oil every place metal rubs metal (including the bobbin area). To help loosen things, direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the interior of the machine.

This process was used on an older Kenmore that had totally frozen, but it was working again within 15 minutes.

The motor on my huskystar 207 has seized up.


Needle broke then it seized? Could be any number of things from a bent upper arm to a motor that needs servicing. I recommend you take it in for professional repair.

Husqvarna Huskystar 207 Sewing Machine not stitching. It won't pull the bobin thread up to sew.


Be sure not to use Singer Needles. They are longer than standard needles. Don't know if this helps, but I did this once on my Huskystar 207 and that is what happened. It also damaged the bobbin thread.

Which way does the flat side of the needle go towards in a 215 model?


the flat side should face the back of the sewing machine
here's a tip I learned about needle & thread compatibility from a needle & thread expert
.
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

happy sewing

I cant seem to get my bobbin to stay. When I sew the needle is hitting it and breaking.


Seems like your timing may be out, or hopefully it is that the needle slipped down and needs to be changed and inserted all of the way. Make sure that there is no lint or thread up there. I hope it is the latter problem, Good luck

My 5 year old Huskystar 216 sewing machine is


Sounds like the hook/needle timing. To check do the following:

With the power off!!
remove bobbin and bobbin case.
push needle all the way to the left.
Turn handwheel toward you watching the needle and bobbin housing hook. The point of the hook should line up right above the eye of the needle.

If not timing, clean bobbin area removing lint and thread.
Check bobbin tension, should get slight resistance when pulling thread.
Make sure using only Husqvarna Viking bobbins -- most are green but they have new colors now. All will have the Husqvarna logo on them (an H). Make sure the bobbin is unwinding in the right direction.

Remove fabric. Pull extra long bobbin thread (about 3 inches). Hold upper thread tail in left hand, turn handwheel toward you for 1 revolution. Is the bobbin thread caught by the top thread and pulled through the opening of the needle plate?

If you are still unable to get a good stitch, take to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept for repair. A list of dealers close to you can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.
