Thread continuously getting ****/caught in shuttle

Hello!

Im not sure what's happening... the upper thread continuously is getting stuck in the shuttle and making a huge mess.

The machine is a few years old, but i could probably count on one hand the number of times I've used it.

Thoughts? Advice?

Thanks!

My first thought would be to check the threading on the top, all though it may look right undo it and redo it its real easy to get the tread behind the tension discs, instead of between them. If all that is right check your upper tension, but not until you have rethreaded it.

What must I now do to get it to make a loop. Have re-threaded 100 times


The machine timing and needle position is critical in catching the upper thread by the hook. The upper thread via the hook shuttle surrounds the bobbin making the stitch.

All machines have to achieve the same function but accomplish it through different arrangements.

the process includes the following: needle goes through fabric down adjacent to shuttle hook. needle starts up creating loop in upper thread at the point of the hook. Hook rotates and catches the loop.
Hook continues and thread circles the shuttle. Upper thread is pulled up by the thread take up.

My needle thread wrap around shuttle hook how do I repair this? on my Brothers CS 8060


Barbara,
Upper thread looping around the shuttle is typically caused by improper threading through the upper tension disks and takeup lever. Check the instruction manual, carefully rethread the top of your machine and make sure the presser foot is in the down position. If the problem continues it may indicate an issue with tension disks. Remove the upper thread, fold a clean piece of fabric and with the presser foot raised to open the tension disks, place the fabric it in the thread path, through the upper tension disks. Lower the presser foot and draw the fabric back and forth to clean any build up of grime and wax from the disks. Lift the presser foot, remove the fabric, rethread and try again.

If the problem persists, you should not need any tools to remove the shuttle to inspect it - sometimes it is necessary to remove the needle plate to lift it out. Check the edges and underside of the plastic shuttle for marks caused by needle strikes - these can catch the thread causing the issue you describe. If there are marks, you may be able to polish them out with fine (600 grit or higher) wet and dry paper. I generally replace them. Also check the tip of the hook for marks - you can often feel these with your fingernail. If they are present, you may need to get a mechanic to polish them out.

Thread caught in pfaff 1475 shuttle


Spray a little WD40 on the broken thread, it makes it easier to pull out, also use dental picks to get in there.

My problem is between the needle and the bobbin. The tread continues to get caught just below the needle- inside of the machine. The bobbin seems to be lifting up and thread gets caught beneath the needle


Hi. So is this a horizontal hook? Where is the thread getting caught beneath the needle? Maybe on the hook? Check your upper threading to make sure the thread passes through the thread take-up lever. If thread is not through the lever, it wont get pulled up , which can lead to multiple thread loops getting caught on the hook, not pulling off after the rotation.

The top thread on my Janome 300E is getting caught in the bobbin. It starts bunching up on the back of the fabric that I am trying to embroider and it gets stuck. When I pull it off all the top thread is...


If your thread is getting caught underneath it's usually the UPPER thread is threaded wrong or not correctly through the tension discs. This can also happen if you're using Sticky Back stabilizer. Make sure you have a new needle in case there's a burr on the old one which can also cause this problem.

Need online manual


If you are having problems with the thread on the underside of the fabric, that is usually the upper tension. Check to make sure that it is threaded correctly. If so, make sure that the thread is inside the tension disc and that there are no pieces of thread caught in the tension. If it is threaded and there are no thread caught up in the tension assembly, adjust your tension dial to a slightly higher number. Do this until you get a good stitch.

Tread getting hung up in the shuttle


HI!

In most cases when thread is nesting, bunching, ect..it is a result of top threading. Be sure that you have the thread through the proper threading guides,most importantly, the "take-up lever" (that is the silver hook that moves up and doen in time with the needle). This should resolve the problem regardless of the machine.
