You may just have a bent needle or a burr on your needle plate. Is the machine set to a straight stitch? If, not do so. Check these first. I doubt that it is the timing.

I can not pick up the thread[string] from under the machine,both the strings on the needle and under the machine should be on top of the table to start sewing


If this is your first time sewing on a machine then:

Once you make sure the needle is threaded and the bobbin is sitting correctly in the bobbin casing, and you have installed and manipulated the thread according to your manufacturers instructions:.

Holding the end of the thread that you threaded through the needle, use the wheel (right hand side of the machine) and rotate it toward you pulling the thread that you are holding gently toward you.

The bobbin thread should give you some restriction and the end of the bobbin thread should have come through the hole in the needle plate (the metal plate that sits under the presser foot on the table of your machine.

Hope this has helped.

My Husqvarna diamond top thread keeps breaking while doing loop embroidery. It sews a couple of stitches and then you can hear when the thread breaks. Ive tried changing the needle and bobbin, and cleaning...


Hello

Primary causes of upper thread breakage:


-- misthreading: pull all the thread off and thread again, using the manual, step by step. Read each step aloud before you do it. (sounds dumb, but helps.) (And make sure you thread the takeup lever!)

-- thread has wrapped itself around a thread guide or spool pin from one of the breaks. Take the spool off the machine before rethreading.

-- bad or damaged needle. Replace with the right size for the fabric, turned correctly (backwards needles skip stitches)

-- dirty machine, especially in the bobbin case area: review cleaning instructions and do it, using brush and vacuum only

-- bad/cheap thread: should not be slubby or break easy. Try another spool.

-- top thread tension too tight. 4 is normal for most fabrics, most stitches.

Tips;

1) do a light cleaning (brush and vacuum) every day you sit down to sew.

2) replace the needle if you hear it hit metal, if you've got a really bad thread jam, if you see it deflect as you sew (for instance, sewing over the side seam on jeans when hemming). Replace every 3-8 hours of actual stitching time anyhow.

3) buy good quality thread

4) when your machine isn't sewing right, stop; take all the thread off of/out of the machine (bobbin out of bobbin case, spool off spool pin) and give it a quick cleaning. Rethread from scratch, carefully. If that doesn't fix it, do it again, then replace needle and rethread one more time, manual in hand (yah, even if you've threaded it 8 million times before). #4 is curative about 98% of the time. The other 2% often requires professional attention.

The bobbin holder is not rotating to allow needl to come down and pick up the bobbin thread. I have tried cleaning lent out and don't know what else to try. Help.


Hello:

Remove the bobbin holder and check underneath for foreign materials. Then replace ensuring it is replaced correctly. Your manual should have a diagram which shows how it should sit. Test by using the hand wheel.

Double check that your needle isn't bent.

I have a Thompson PW 201 machine . It will not sew through more than one piece of material. I have been using this machine to sew through four pieces of vinyl and never had any problems. Now if iI try...


it sounds like to me that the timing is off, check to see how close the needle is to hitting the bobbin when it comes down through the table. that metalic clunk is probably the needle hitting the bobbin holder, OR the bobbin.. check for a bent needle also..

I have a Singer model 4562 T sewing machine, and threading the bobbin, the bobbin case just kind of popped out. I've tried just sliding it back in, but no matter which way I put it in it doesn't seem to...


The bobbin case is designed to be removed for cleaning. Take off the needle plate if it is still on the sewing machine. Make sure that the needle and presser foot are fully up. Guide the forked end of the bobbin case under the feed (more or less centered). Then pull the bobbin case under the rim of the position plate. Pull on the side opposite the forked end of the bobbin case. With a small screw driver, turn the lever (at about 10 o'clock on a 12-hour analog clock) towards you. This will lock the bobbin case into place. Make sure that the bobbin case isn't locked too tightly. It still needs to move slightly as the bobbin turns and the needle comes through that plate.

Replace the needle plate and lock it down. Then insert the bobbin and close the slide plate. The manual shows the procedure to remove and replace the bobbin case on the 4562 on page 39. Singer has the manual on the support page: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/435_5_8_10_16_22_dial.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(I hope that the locking lever hasn't broken. That may require a service person to solve the problem. I'm not entirely sure where that lever is connected to the machine. Some Singer part diagrams are here: http://www.singerco.com/support/replacement-parts-chart . The 4562 may use the same diagram as the 4572, http://parts.singerco.com/CPpartCharts/4_4999/4572.pdf .)

How do you thread a singer 9836c machine


I have this machine and the manual but it will be difficult to explain without the diagram. Here are the instructions without the diagram ... I'm assuming that you know some parts of the machine i.e. the foot etc

NB. thread the bobbin FIRST - points number 8 onwards....

1. Raise take-up lever to highest position on machine by turning the hand wheel towards you and make sure the presser foot is raised.
2. Place spool of thread on the spool pin at the back making sure spool cap is firmly in place to keep it on.
3. Take thread and place through the thread guide (plastic bit same side as spool pin) a under and over action. Across from this guide is a small metal wheel on top of another loop pin on the top at the front of the machine. Take the thread and put through the loop pin. 9Thread should come out on top of the pin towards you).
4. On the front of the arm is a tension wheel numbered between 0 - 8. The thread should then be placed down the front of the arm, underneath the tension wheel (behind the body part of the arm not under the wheel) and lifted up to catch the tension spring unseen behind the wheel. It should then be threaded through the eye of the metal piece (that moves as the needle goes up and down).
5. The thread should then be passed down the gap in the body work and down through the middle of the metal spiral loop in the front near the needle.
6. The thread should continue down through the horizontal clip just above the needle.
7. The needle should be place with the flat part at the back and held firmly with the screw. The eye of the needle will face you. The thread should then be threaded through the front and out the back and under the foot leaving a six inch tail.

Your thread should now come off the spool move towards the left through the plastic guide, across the top of the machine at right angles, through the metal loop; down the front of the machine (you can't see the thread as it sits behind the body) and reappears through the metal arm hole that goes up and down with the needle. It should then come down through the metal spiral and behind the clip above the needle, through the eye of the needle and away from you under the foot.

8. The bobbin needs to be wound. The bobbins are particualr to each make of machine. So only singer bobbins can be used on Singer machines. The bobbin winder is the metal pin on the right on the top of the machine.
9. To wind the bobbin. Place the bobbin over the metal pin nad push firmly down. It is located on the top on the right hand side.
10. Place thread on the spool pin as before and thread the cotton through the plastic thread guide.
11. Take the thread as before but rather than going through the metal clip on the top at the front, place it anti clockwise partly round the metal wheel on top of the metal clip (don't go all the way around) and across to the right where the bobbin has been placed.
12. The thread should be wound clockwise as many times as required not to slip off when the thread is automatically wound with the electic foot peddle.
13. Push the bobobin manually to the right along the groove in the body and press the electric foot peddle. Bobbin should wind moving the thread up and down (not necessarly evenly) and filling the bobbin. Fill about 80%. Leave a six inch tail.
14 Pull the plate forward under the needle. Place bobbin in its slot. The thread should be in a clockwise direction and when the bobbin is placed catch the thread under the groove found on the left at the top of the bobbin case. Close the plate with the thread coming out above in the slot under the needle.
15 Manually turn the hand wheel a couple of times until you can see the bobbin thread making a loop with the stitch thread and pull through.
16 Both threads should be under the foot and away from you.
17 Tension normally is around 5 -6 on the tension wheel with standard cotton and polyester cotton thread. To tighten the tension the number should increment upwards.

Machine is a cracker and according to my local shop never goes wrong. I have had mine since 1999 and that's true.

Hope this helps.... I would send you the manual but I'm not sure how you keep email addresses private.

Good luck.

Bobbin Thread Doesn't Join the Upper Thread


Have you lowered the presser foot lever? It is the lever behind the needle that makes the foot go down. Do you put the bobbin in the machine from the top of the machine or from the front? In either case, you need to make sure the bobbin thread has clicked into the tension slot in the bobbin case. The bobbin case is the part of the machine that the bobbin sits in. It will have some kind of narrow cut out with a thin metal shaped piece half covering the opening. The thread has to go down into the cut out piece and click down beside the metal piece. You will hear a faint "click" when it is in place. Very hard to describe, but easy to show someone! Write back if this is not helpful to you. Also tell us your machine model.

A bent needle will hit the metal. If it continues you will need to adjust the needle carrier. hopefully that isn't bent, but if so I don't believe that the replacement of it will be too costly.

Send this machine back where it came from! machine. You have described a timing problem which you can not and should not need to do.
Change the needle first and test it to be sure the needle still hits on the hook. If it does,follow the above instructions. If it no longer hits then it's possible it is not as serious as I first thought.I'm not sure if the bobbin keeps coming out or the bobbin case(the plastic part the bobbin sits in) comes out.If it is just the bobbin, insert the bobbin in the case and pull on the thread. The bobbin should turn COUNTERCLOCKWISE. If it turns the other way, turn it upside down and try it again.
If it is the bobbincase,then Remove the needle plate and take the bobbin case completely out. On this machine there is a small lever which holds the bobbin case in position. Looking down on the bobbin case the lever is located at about 11 o'clock and has a small slot in it. It is also probably spring loaded which means it is not easy to turn without a small screwdriver. Insert the screwdriver in the slot and turn it to the left. Lift out the bobbin case and Carefully examine it for any nicks, scratches or rough spots. If you find any, they will need to be removed with an emery stick and or a sharpening stone. Buff with a very fine steel wool for total smoothness.
To replace the bobbin case use the screwdriver to open and hold the lever open while you insert the case back in. The straight part of the case will be on the right and you need to place the case so that the circular part rides on the slight grove in the hook.(The metal thing it sits on). Once you have it in place you can release the lever you've been holding open . It should fit over the edge of the bobbin case and not allow it to come out. Rethread the machine and turn it by hand a few times to see that it is working properly. Good luck!!!
