Shuttle alignment and assembly

I took the shuttle apart to clean but have problem aligning/synchronising the needle and shuttle /bobbin movement. I should have taken a picture before I took them apart. What should the correctly assembled shuttle bobbin part look like?

please help

The shuttle/race/bobbin system shouldn't really be taken apart by the average user. Unfortunately, your chances of ever getting it back together properly so the machine will sew (this is the timing of the machine) are very slim. You'll need to take it to a sewing machine technician. I would recommend an authorized Pfaff tech as they'll be sure to have the proper tools to do this correctly - won't be inexpensive but will be worth it. Most "neighborhood sewing machine repair folks" don't have experience on computer machines. Resetting timing on a computer machine isn't the same as the old mechanicals and requires some expertise.

    If you're really not supposed to take it apart then why does the manual give step by step directions on how to do so? Is that so we will HAVE to take it to an authorized tech and spend a not so inexpensive amount to fix something the manual showed us how to do?? Not nice!!!!

    Hi - the answer above was specifically for a Pfaff 7570 machine and does not apply to all machines. The Pfaff 7570 manual does NOT show how to take apart the race system, only removing the bobbin case from the machine and adjusting the bobbin tension. Unscrewing other parts of the Pfaff 7570 system CAN result in a huge mess and a ruined machine - much better to take it to someone who has the proper tools to correctly calibrate all the necessary parts.
    However, if you are looking for a solution for a different machine, perhaps I can assist with some guidance there.
    For instance, if you've run over a needle and the machine is jammed (can't turn the handwheel to move the needle up/down), it may be something simple or something extensive.
    1. You may have knocked the machine out of timing. Some mechanical machines can be retimed by the user, some cannot.
    2. The handwheel not turning can also be the result of a broken gear/cam, something that can't be repaired by the user.
    3. Or it can even be something as simple as a piece of thread stuck between the outer & inner parts (race) of the bobbin area. A jammed thread can usually be removed by turning the handwheel backwards. Adding extra oil to the hook can aid in removing any stuck threads... you'll need to - obviously - remove the excess oil once you've gotten the thread dislodged.
    If none of these suggestions help, please don't hesitate to comment again with specific details about your machine/problem.
    Most sewing machine repair techs will look at your machine for free... some will even fix MINOR issues at no charge. This depends on the individual dealer - you'll just need to call some in your area to find what they charge.

I have a Bernina Activa 140. The threaded needle is not catching the bobbin thread. What should the needle height be from the plate?


The needle height is best checked by rotating the handwheel until the needle goes down through the stitch-plate (Make sure you're using a zig-zag stitch plate and not a straight stitch plate) and just starts to come back up again. Stop there. Gently push the needle bar to the right until the needle is at its furthest-most travel right (next to the right-hand edge of the needle slot). Tip the machine backwards slightly and drop the bobbin door; take the bobbin out. Open the hook/shuttle retainer, but leave the hook/shuttle in the hook race. The point of the hook/shuttle should be somewhere near the top, just below the stitch plate. Slowly rotate the handwheel until the point of the hook/shuttle passes just behind the needle; The point on the hook/shuttle should be just above the thread hole in the needle - if-so, the needle is at the right height, assuming the machine is properly synchronised. If its at the wrong height, you would need to have the needle-bar mechanism adjusted to put it right (relatively simple) - you cant just try and fudge it by adjusting the needle height using the needle securing screw. If you need help with re-setting the needle bar to get the right height, I can help, but you really need to be sure that the machine is properly synchronised first, so this may not be the total solution. Hope this helps.

Bobbin holder popped out and I cannot figure how to get it back in


Go to the maintenance section of the manual for cleaning instructions and this will show you how to remove and replace the bobbin case or shuttle for your machine.

If you do not have a manual, you can view or download (free) at the Brother website.

Hint - for all machines, turn off the power and then raise the needle to it's at highest position and this will align the shuttle to the proper position.

I think the timing is off on my singer 7430 -- it keeps breaking needles and I can see where the needle hits the bottom of the bobbin casing when it is in the fully down position -- any quick fix?


Drop-in bobbin?

Refer to the maintenance section of the manual for cleaning.

Raise the needle to it's highest position and remove the bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean the shuttle and replace the bobbin case, noting the graphic in the instruction manual for aligning the case into the shuttle.

Turn the handwheel to see if the needle now clears the outer edge of the bobbin case.

Singer Model 5050 Timing Problem


Actually,timing of needle vs, shuttle is not very easy job several factor you should check on.There is belt ot sometime a shafting with worm gear and helical gear under machine w/c drive the shuttle with the bobbins in timing order,Any one of them is present on the timing adjustment can be done by releasing the belt or the helical gear,besure machine is unplug then set all mechanism on low dead center meaning the needle move to utmost lower position catching this by the shuttle and bobbins at center position.No motion applied if this was set up,engage the belt with pulley and the bobbins link holder tigh allenscrew besure the needle is lower dead center at the center of shullle bobbins catching needle without motion when setting back at original position.If this was made manually move it on handwheel going up and side down the needle gradually if the needle move freely several time and it was catching this by the shuttle hook bobbins.if ok put thread bobbins and upper thread dial tension with the needle.Move machine on handwheel try to catch the bobbins thread,If this so your machine is ready to sew again if problem occurs on alignment repeat adjustment on perpect alignment,besure all parts on upper casing of machine specially two drive gear are in normal alignment.

I took my maching apart to clean the lint out and when I put it back to together the needle is hitting the feed dogs. what could be causing this!


most likely the bobbin case is not aligned correctly .Insert the bobbin case so that the projection on the boobin case aligns with the spring.

Shuttle


The bobbin should be placed in the shuttle, with the needle at the top end travel. You can watch the shuttle move as the hand wheel is turned.

Pfaff creative 7570 shuttle assembly


Have a look at www.sewusa.com they have a "repair & threading page" this may help you re-assemble your machine. It is impossible to explain how to put the thing back together and re-time it, it is something you need to be shown how to do. Other alternative is to take it to a sewing machine tech.

Kenmore 385. 11607 needle jams into shuttle or shuttle race


I had the same problem with cleaning and jamming and this might sound silly, but when you're in the middle of trying to fix it remember to look up see that it is threaded up top. I did everything the pp's suggested and when they didn't work I realized the top thread wasn't still threaded around the tension thing anymore. After rethreading it, it worked fine. But I DID reduce the amount of thread on the bobbin at the same time as Drazil suggested.
