My Futura 900 machine is locked up tighter than a drum. How can I fix it?


this should be in sewing not vacuums. Did you find the bit of needle that broke off? It might still be in causing problems. turn machine upside down to free any bits that might be hanging about.

7467S sewing machine beeps four time and won't let me sew


Hi! Probably too late to help the original asker, but I have this same machine and was having the exact same problem. 4 beep error message, but mine would not sew at all. Found this question through a google search, but no answer. But I figured it out! I had left the buttonhole lever down!! (Facepalm) I hope this is helpful to future googlers with a similar problem.

Hi I have a Janome 419S or 423S, the problem seems to be my hook race unit keeps getting loose and then the thread jams up. What can be done? Please


A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in thehook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towardsyou (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. Alwaysturn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you(clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam yourmachine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position beforeyou start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam yourmachine in the bobbin case. If youhave an older model sewing machine with a shuttle hook, then you can alsofollow these: 1. Disconnect the sewing machine from any power source.Loosen the thumb screw on the left side of the sewing machine body and removethe cover to expose the needle bar. This is the shaft that extends down andthat you attach a needle to for sewing. Open the shuttle race and remove the bobbinand bobbin case. 2. Turn the hand wheel toward you until the needle hasreached the lowest point of the stroke. The hook should be at the top of itsstroke inside the shuttle race. Loosen the set screw for the needle bar on theupper part of the machine, this is located on the needle bar bushing (thecollar that the needle bar slides through when making a stitch). The needle barshould slide easily up and down. 3. Turning the wheel again, adjust the position of the tipof the needle so that the upper part of the needle eye is just below the bottomedge of the hook inside the shuttle race. Once in position, re-tighten the setscrew on the needle bar bushing. Do not allow the needle bar to slip whiledoing this. 4. Replace the bobbin and bobbin case and close the shuttlerace. Thread and plug in your machine. Using a sizable scrap of cloth, sew aseam to check to see if there are any skips in the stitching. If there arestill skips re-adjust the timing again until you can sew without any skipped stitches. 5. When proper timing has been achieved replaces the coveron the needle bar and tighten the thumb screw. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

The needle keeps hitting medal on the down stroke


I assume that you are talking about a sewing machine. If the needle strike the bobbin case, the timing between the needle and the hook has shifted and needs to be reset. For instructions on how th se the timing visit http://www.ehow.com/how_6644380_set-sewing-machine-timing.html

I need a threading diagram for a Singer 16-188 sewing machine. TIA Mike


The upper thread flows from the left to right as it goes through metalstems (posts) with holes, along the top of the machine head, and thendrops down and passes over and under the upper gension disk and thetake up spring.  Then, moves back up to the take up arm (which moves upand down like a goose's neck when turning the handwheel) then startsthe trip down to the needle, going through a couple metal loops (calledthread guides) and lastly through the needle thread guide and throughthe needle eye, as I recall from left to right (?), this part is moreobvious when looking at it.

Heres a link to a manual for that machine. hope this helps

if you open the left end of the machine .. look inside above the needle and to the back .. you will see a pivot bolt that has either come loose, broken off or fallen out .. replacing that bolt should fix the problem ..

Machine will only sew in reverse


Open the bottom of the machine. Ther is a rod running from one end to the other. It needs to be loosened and turned 180 degrees. You may have to retime the machine when you are done.
