EURO PRO 6131 Sewing Machine not maintaining stitch

I have a EUROPRO 6131 Sewing Machine it was sewing fine, then it stopped picking up the bobbin thread. I then oiled it and cleaned it (it was full of wool fibers) and rethreaded it several times, put in new needles, different size needles etc. and it starts out and usually makes a couple of stitches and then the tread is just a straight line on either side of the fabric. The needle is inserted right. The bobbin is installed right, but after a couple of stitches usually about exactly 6 stitches at best the upper and lower thread is not hooked together, running on the settings that use to sew just dandy? Can you please suggest what I might do? Is it a timing issue? The machine was rather dirty with heavy wool (18.5 oz) and before this happened I was having a problem with feed with heavy seams, where the needle was sewing in one place for too long and kinda growing a beard under the needle plate that snagged the material in place, and stopping it, so that I had to cut the beard off and start anew to start sewing again, but now it won't make too many secure stitchs no matter what the material thickess or overlap, usually about exactly 6 stitches good stitches and that's it.
Thanks ohallock@yahoo.com

I have a euro pro shark sewing machine. I just changed the thread for another project and cannot get the needle to pick up the bobbin thread. Any ideas?


Try installing a brand new needle. Bent/damaged needles will sometimes not pick up the bobbin thread.

Make sure the machine is threaded correctly. Check the bobbin--ie, it is turning the correct direction in the bobbin case and is threaded properly through the bobbin tension.

You might also try pulling the bobbin thread up to the top before beginning to stitch.

Euro Pro 9105 won't catch bobbin thread


Hi,

first of all make sure you have the needle in the correct way round, flat side facing back, try a new needle, it only has to be slightly bent or blunt and it will miss stitches, the tension unit is the small piece near the takeup lever and it only has a small spring but that has nothing to do with the threading picking up, if the machine misses stitches after trying the above then you will need to retime the machine either bu a shop or by yourself, if you are sewing on fabric that collects static such as knitted fabric make sure you use an anti-static needle otherwise it will miss stitches.

Goodluck..

Can you use metal bobbins in this machine?


Probably. Most are plastic today because they're cheaper.
If they fit and work, go ahead.
Here are parts being offered for your machine; 6130 is close to 6131.

Europro model 6131 is stuck in reverse


I have never found any online instruction manuals and repair manuals are just as non-existent.

You can try jiggling the reverse lever while turning the hand wheel. Other than that the only suggestion I have is to use the machine for target practice.

Want to use other stitches on my euro-pro model 6131 but dont know how to use the different feet


I have a lot of different sites, free and pay, that I search for manuals for people. But I didn't find a manual for a 6131. I DID find a 6130A and, often, models that are that close in number are very similar in their instructions.

Since the manual is free, it doesn't cost you anything but time to download it and see if it looks similar to your machine. It may give you the information you need on the feet. Go to http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/europro/europro_6130a_lcd.html/ Go to the bottom of the pop up window and just agree to the terms-you don't have to take part in any of the offers or sign up for the sight. You'll then be taken to the manual and can download it without any viruses. The sites been checked before not just by myself but a couple of my friends who are bigger internet geeks than I am :).

I hope this manual gives you the help you need. Happy sewing!

My europro x machine: problem w/upper thread coming out through needle


Hi. You're probably not pulling enough thread through the needle before you start to sew. The tails for the upper and bobbin threads should be at least 3 inches long when you start the seam. Hold them for the first few stitches to avoid making birds nests under the fabric.
Hope this helps!

Machine won't sew at all


RE: Euro-Pro 9000 Mechanical Sewing Machine "Won't Sew"

I am wondering if you tried unplugging it for at least 1 minute to let it reset the onboard computer (sometimes they need to be unplugged overnight).

Try the following links....
