Question about New Home Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Having given up on finding the needle "lost" in the bobbin area, I have disassembled the bobbin case and do not remember how to reassemble it. Just two little silver parts that screw in after (I think) the bobbin case is laid in. The main problem being one with a little engraved arrow on it.

    Thank you, think you were describing a newer machine than I have but I figured it out. Any worry that "lost needle" might cause damage? (Than again, may find that lost needle under the bed one of these days, ha)

    Also, cannot use feed dog lowering mechanism. Looking carefully at parts that might be involved in the mechanics of the movement--well, just not clear how it works. Machine is a New Home DX2030, very basic and 18 year machine.

    Feed dog lowering mechanism is a plastic lever activated by a toggle switch on rear of the removable sewing arm cover. Looks to me like the plastic lever should nestle against some mechanical part that holds feeds dogs in downmost position--but can't see where that might be!!

The way to insert them is like follows..
The semicircle one will fit first in the location ...and pay attention to insert it in the right way ...there will be another semicircle piece inside that it is not removable ..and they have to kinda complete themselves..after that you put in place the ring like cover to keep it in place ...For some machines this is door like action ..having a hinge and a snap lock ..for others is removable and it has a screw..
once all these in place ..(do not force them when you locate the right position it will fit gently ..and usually you hear a click...all you have to do is to move that semicircle a little until it fits in place..and cover it up with the lit circle..)
the lat piece will be the bobbin ..with the case on ..and the thread passed by the slot ..in its position ...
this one also have to snap in ..when you get the right position ..the Idea is to put it on the site ...and rotate a little the wheel to make it fit..and snap ...when you hear the snap you are sure that it is in the correct way and will not pop out when you rotate the wheel

Needle hits bobbin casing.


Don't know if you have a manual or not. You can read the manual from the link below. I would look for the bobbin area in the manual. There should be a section showing the bobbin area for cleaning and oiling. It may as simple as removing and reassembling the bobbin case.
It could be the timing and would require a service repair technician.

How do I reassemble drop-in bobbin case for Brothers XL 2600 free arm?


Do you have some pictures of the area involved. I know how to put these things back but I can't think how to explain it to you.. pics might help me show you.

Brother has an outstanding service department, and if you don't have a manual, they should have one. Should have a pic of how it goes together.

My sewing machine does not move at all


Is the bobbin winder on? If so, turn it off.
Otherwise, is there power to the machine?
And this happened while you were sewing? Cut the thread above the needle eye. Rock the handwheel back and forth firmly to try to cut the thread jam below the needle plate with the sewing hook. If that doesn't work, open the bobbin case area of the machine and try to pull the bobbin case out, cutting any threads you can see with a seam ripper. Still won't come? Take the needle out of the needle clamp and throw it away (it's bent!), and take the screws out of the needle plate (=throat plate) and take the needle plate off after cutting any threads you can reach under the fabric. Keep cutting and pulling out any thread you find, and eventually, you'll be able to turn the handwheel. Clean all the thread bits, lint, and junk out of the area under the needle plate, the bobbin and bobbin case, and the shuttle area... there will be directions in your manual on how to clean the machine, including the shuttle area. Reassemble. Put in a brand new needle, right way around and fully up in the needle clamp. Rethread from scratch.
Always hold the thread ends behind the presser foot for the first couple of stitches of each seam.

I just brought home a Juki 8700. The needle went down and now I can't get it basck up. There is thread stuck in the bobbin. How do I get the bobbin casing off


Cut the thread above the needle eye and rock the handwheel back and forth sharply to cut the thread with the sewing hook. If that doesn't work pretty promptly, undo the needle clamp and turn the handwheel, which should raise the needle bar. Then get into the bobbin case area and try to remove the bobbin case, cutting any threads you can. Keep rocking the handwheel and trying to pull out the needle (pliers help!), and eventually everything will loosen up.

Next, clean and lubricate the area under the needle plate and the shuttle, and reassemble. Put in a brand new needle, right way around and fully up in the machine. Load the bobbin case with a well-wound bobbin, and rethread the top of the machine and you should be good to go.

When the machine starts the bobbin shifts, instead of stitching it jams. I have tried to replace it but I don't seem to be having any luck. Elna 6003 quilters dream


Sounds like the bobbin case has shifted inside the rotary hook area. Have you got the manual? if so, does it give directions to remove the bobbin case as part of the cleaning instructions? If you have never taken it out, perhaps take pics with your digital camera to help you put it back in correctly. It is held in by a magnet underneath it. Remove the needle plate, pressure foot and needle, and the bobbin.

Have a good look at the bobbin case, it should have a stopper which sits against a little bump and might have two red marks to line up correctly. Are these lining up or has it shifted a little. If so, then lift out the bobbin case by holding the edge closest to you and lifting it upwards and towards you. Brush the underneath area out carefully to remove any lint or thread bits with your little brush bringing the lint out of the area and into a bin (dont push it around into the area under the rotary hook) and don't blow it out with air. Have a good look at the bobbin case too and check it for any damage, if you dislodge it while stitching the needle can strike it and as its plastic there may be little marks or bits of plastic now, if so, give them a gentle rub with fine grade sandpaper (away from the machine works) or a nail file to smooth off. I found that mine had a couple of holes and the thread was then catching on the rough edge of plastic and jamming constantly. I actually bought a new bobbin case after 3 goes to sort this out.

Now put the bobbin case back into place, lining up the red marks if it has them. Manually turn the flywheel towards you through a stitch sequence, the holder should sit still while the hook goes around it.

Reassemble the machine, rethread and test sew. I hope this helps, if you have tried all this already, then perhaps take it to your Elna dealer for further investigation/service.

Designer 1 Embroidery Bobbin problem


Designer 1 bobbin case tension adjustment:
When the bobbin runs out, sometimes it bends the bobbin case tension spring. Then tension is too light. Take the bobbin case out of the machine. Tie the loose bobbin thread to the Designer 1 needle plate. Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case. Here’s the tricky part set the bobbin case on the table as if it’s in the machine (Bobbin is visible and sitting horizontal to table top) threaded as if sewing and loose end tied to needle plate (that is removed from the machine). Lift the bobbin case off the table rotate it so that the flat side of the bobbin are vertical to the table and no longer horizontal. Have the bobbin case oriented so that the thread coming out of the bobbin case sprint (slot area where it is put for sewing) is at the top. Lift it high enough that the needle plate is lifted from the table. It should not release thread unless you shake it gently and then a very small amount of thread. The needle plate is the exact weight resistance your bobbin case should have on the thread.
