Nothng happens when I step on the foot peddle

I have an old White sewing machine which sews beautifully. I was sewing, ran out of bobbin thread, wound thread onto the bobbin and put it in the case and went to begin sewing again and nothing happened when I stepped on the foot peddle - - it was completely silent. The light is on so i know it's getting electricity. Any suggestions?

Check the pins on the machine plug to make sure none have been pushed in, check the cables for any breaks but make sure the plug is out of the wall first, if you can undo the plug on the lead to check it all well and good, failing that take the foot control and lead into a sewing machine shop so it can be tested

Have the Ruby Royale, the bobbin thread is coming to the top side of fabric, not getting full color. Have retreaded, new bobbin, no luck. It's a new machine and worked beautifully this morning.


Tension is probably the problem. Sewing heats up the machine and the tension discs may not like it. Also be sure that your thread, fabric and needle are correct. The wrong needle ( too big?) may draw too much thread from the bobbin.

Problem with singer 590c. Thread bunches up & breaks or the bobbin thread wont sew. 1 time happened to get everything right & it sewed beautifully.Today I cant get it to pick up the bobbin thread.


Make sure to use a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading.
Unthread and re-thread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Set the upper tension to midway between High & Low numbers.
Verify the bobbin is loaded and threaded correctly in the bobbin case.
Begin sewing slowly and check the result. The upper tension can be tweaked so the upper & bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

If it is still not working properly, the machine may be out of time and require service.

The needle will not stay threaded every time i mash the peddle to start sewing, the needle comes unthreaded


Place the upper thread, along with your lower thread UNDER the presser foot....you may not be allowing enough thread off of the bobbin and roll. Pull out the thread to about 6 inches and see what happens, Happy Sewing!

I place the fabric on the machine, lower the foot and apply pressure to the foot peddle, when the machine begins to sew fabric is pulled down and the lower thread tangles, the machine make a crunching...


This is easily solved. Before you start sewing make sure your upper and lower threads are long enough for you to hold before lowering the presser foot. If these threads are too short they both get carried down into the bobbin along with the fabric and cause a big tangled mess. Always hold your threads at the back of your work with your left hand then lower your pressure foot and don't release the threads untill you have taken several stitches. Keep holding these threads during backstitching at the beggining of a seam too. Works like magic.

I have a ce 100 and the bobbin thread comes up and gets into my embroidery pattern. how do i loosen the top tension to stop this from happening. my purple flower has white in it from the bobbin :(


Just an FYI-the bobbin thread needs to match your top thread. The majority of the thread that appears in the top of your embroidery actually IS the bobbin thread. The machine is working correctly. Don't use a bobbin full of white thread-instead, thread a bobbin with the color your doing the embroidery work in to match and you will have a perfectly beautiful embroidery.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up and this will eliminate what looks like a loopy bobbin thread.

If you thread with the presser foot down, the tension control is not open to accept the thread as it is designed to do.

Then when you sew, the tension cannot control the top thread and the bobbin thread pulls the loose top thread to the bottom of the fabric.

Normal setting for the tension is usually mid-range ( 4 or 5).

I have a model 1409A White sewing machine and I'm having issues with threading it. Something is going on with the needle and the bobbin. How do I fix it?


Thread the machine with the presser foot up - this opens the tension for the thread to enter and be controlled as you sew.

Threading with the presser foot down, closes the tension and the thread cannot enter during the threading process and you get loose, loopy stitches that appear to be an issue with the bobbin.

Threading a bobbin on the new home 2014le


place spool of thread in , route it towards your bobbin holder, take thread and put through one hole about 4 inches hanging ontop. press it in and slide it to the right where you hear a click, hit the peddle, should be winding, it will automatically stop on its own when full. click it to the left when done, snip it and then drop that into your bobbin holder , cover your plate, thread your upper thread and presto you are now sewing with your threaded bobbin, always remember these steps. #1 material choice #2 thread weight #3 needle size. you got to match those 3 for beautiful perfect stitches.
