1. Attach a spool of thread to the machine with the upper spool pin and spring. When you pull on the thread, it should unwind from the spool counterclockwise. Pull the thread from the spool, through Thread Guide 1. Next, slide it between the two discs of the thread tension dial.
2. Pull the thread through the guides in this order. down through Thread Guide 2, down through the Thread-pulling bar, to the left through Thread Guide 3 and down through Thread Guide 4.
3. Raise the needle using the Handwheel and bring the thread through the eye of the Needle from left to right.

As you go right to left across the top of the machine is the threading pattern and then down through the thread pulling bar ( it moves back and forth across the front of the machine as it runs) and then down the arm to the needle. Use a thread bobbin on the spool pin at the begging of the threading process. This machine does not use spools of thread.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to thread sewing machine

Yes, but it is a good basic machine.
Here's how to thread it:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} all machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

SOURCE: How do I thread my Singer 7422?

I suggest you do a search on youtube on how to thread a sewing machine and choose a video showing a similar machine as there are really only about 3 basic types of machine as regards the threading.
Some of these instruction videos are very good and you will find it much easier than explanations. However-the important thing is that the thread must go between the tension discs by your tension regulator and do make sure you have a good need le in the machine, inserted correctly.

SOURCE: Bernina Bernette 65 sewing machine

I had the same problem. I'm a novice sewer. I just bought my machine. It did the samething, tension didn't work, the thread kept knotting up underneath, and the fabric kept curling up in the back.

I adjusted the tension knobs to no avail. Then it kept bothering me that it was curling up. I then decided to set the dials back to where the factory had them and adjusted the presser foot just a hair counterclockwise and I haven't had anymore problems.

The other day the needle almost broke because the tension was tight on the thread. You have to make sure that the needle is at it's highest point to get it to release the fabric so you have a thread tail.

This is my first purchased machine. I had a New Home years ago that was given to me, however it blew away in the tornado of 1991 in Kansas and I never replaced it. I really do love this machine. I don't believe I will ever want another.

Why won't my new home super stretch stitch model-844 pick up bobbin thread to sew manual book


If you need a manual, search the internet for:

Make + Model + the word "Manual"

or contact the manufacturer.

Try installing a brand new needle. A bent needle sometimes will not connect properly. Be sure that both upper and bobbin threads are threaded correctly.

On the other hand, the needle/hook could be out of time. You can check that by hand turning the handwheel and watching the needle/hook movement. There are a multitude of web sites and videos that discuss timing. Or--check with a sewing machine technician.

I need a manual for a JCPenney Model 6601. Or at least how to thread it.


Back in my 7th grade home ec class (I'm 52 yo now), our teacher told us that all machines thread basically the same and I never forgot that and it has served me well through the years. No matter what brand of machine, or level of machine (from little girls first one, my embroidery or my heavy duty industrial leather machine) they have all threaded the same:
Thread spool
thread guide
thread guide
tension
take up lever
thread guide
thread guide
needle
(the number of thread guides may vary)
Best of luck and happy sewing!

However many machines are much the same. Youtube has video's showing how to thread sewing machines. Maybe one of them is close enough to your machine that it will work.
