Question about White Sewing Sewing Machines

Open Question

I have a white sewing machine model w-445, i thread the machine properly, add the bobbin, and i begin to stitch- after 3-4 stitches the thread jams in the bobbin area and stops the machine. i have tried different thread, with the same results. it seems that the thread is not sliding around the bobbin properly as it is getting stuck on the out side and behind the bobbin casing. I have pulled the boobin area parts out numerous times and replaced them, but the machine is still jamming. had this problem before a few years ago, but i do not remember what i did to fix it. any help would be appreciated. thank you

SOURCE: thread tension

I have had this problem when the bobbin was wound wrong and also when the machine was improperly threaded. Check your manual to make sure you hit all the threading points, but I think the most common one i've missed that caused this was the metal loop you thread immediately before threading the needle.

SOURCE: bobbin thread bunches up creating a tangled mess under the plate

This could either be due to the bobbin being wound too loosely, or the tension on the top thread is too loose. This just happened to me the other day, and I thought it was the bobbin thread, but then I put another bobbin in with a different color than the top thread (this is a huge help in diagnosing thread issues), and I was surprised to find that it was actually the top thread that was a big loopy mess on the underside of the fabric. I fixed it by tightening the tension on the top thread (quite a bit), and everything was fine.

SOURCE: Shirring fabric?

When putting your shirring elastic on the bobbin, don't thread the elastic through the bobbin holder,adjust the stitch length longer,and loosen the tension, other wise if you want to put it through the bobbin holder you have to loosen the tension screw on the bobbin holder, and then you have to adjust it back for ordinary sewing,

Machine is not making stitches. Properly threaded and the thread advances, but no stitches.

Install a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Make sure the thread path for the top thread is correct and that the bobbin case is threaded properly and the bobbin turns the correct direction in the bobbin case--install the bobbin case.
If the machine still will not stitch, it is likely it has been knocked out of time.

Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

I have a Brother PR-650. When machine starts to sew the first stitch, Thread comes out at the top usuall sticking up about a half an inch. What can I do to avoid this

When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot. This releases the tension disk so the thread will seat properly. Be sure the thread path is correct and that you have pulled at least 4-6" of thread tail through the needle before taking the first stitch. Begin the first stitch with the take-up lever at it's highest point. Begin sewing slowly--even hand-rotating the handwheel through the first stitch may help. Gently hold the top and bobbin thread tails in your left hand while taking the first stitch to prevent the thread from pulling backward.

Pulling the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric is also beneficial.

If it is creating a thread mess (thread nest) under the fabric, either the machine is not threaded correctly or you have forgotten to lower the presser foot before beginning to stitch.

Make sure you are starting with a brand new needle!

Remove all the thread from the machine.

Check that the bobbin thread is smoothly wound onto the bobbin and that the bobbin is inserted and thread properly in the machine.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the upper thread. Check that the thread path is correct.

Set the upper tension to the midway point on the dial--this is usually the factory setting but may alter over time with use. Once you get your machine stitching without a mess, you can gently alter the upper tension until the two threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Remember to lower the presser foot before beginning to stitch.

It also helps to pull the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric and either wrapping both thread tails around a finger on the left hand or gently holding the thread tails between the left index finger and thumb. Then SLOWLY begin stitching.

Before you begin sewing, it is always helpful to pull up the bobbin thread up through the project fabric.

Before you take the first stitch, be sure the thread take-up lever is at its highest point. Then, gently hold the two thread tails in your left hand and slowly begin to stitch.

In the middle of a project the top thread is being pulled into the bobbin area and it jams.

When that happens with my machine, it's usually because the thread has jumped out of a thread guide (often, in my case, it's the takeup lever).

Remove the thread from the machine.

Install a brand new needle.

RAISE the presser foot and then rethread the machine from the beginning. Raising the presser foot releases the tension disk so the thread will seat properly. Check that the thread path is correct.

Before beginning to stitch, bring the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric. Then grasp both thread tails between your two fingers when you take the first couple of stitches. (These instructions refer to quilting, but it works for regular sewing too.)

Top thread keeps coming out of needle. How do I thread top thread?

Be sure to pull at least 4 to 6 inches of thread through the needle's eye before beginning to sew. Pull the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric BEFORE beginning to sew.

How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread (This works for regular everyday straight stitching too not just design stitches.)

Then, BEFORE taking the first stitch, hold both thread tails with the left hand and then slowly begin stitching. After a couple of stitches, let go of the thread tails and continue to sew.

If you need instructions on how to thread your machine, search the internet for a manual:

Make + Model + the word "Manual"

or look for videos on YouTube to help with the threading process.

Why does my thread knot on the back when stitching in place?

Several things to try:
Pull thread tails (both bobbin thread and upper thread) straight back and when you lower the presser foot, make sure they are held down straight back. This may or may not be enough to solve the problem, but it is simple to try, and often works. You might want to hold the thread tails while you start sewing.
Use a starter--folded piece of fabric scrap about an inch long--and begin sewing oink middle of starter. Push the fabric you want to see right up to the starter and keep sewing from the starter right onto your project without lifting the presser foot or cutting the thread. When you finish sewing, cut the little piece of thread between the starter and your project.
Before lowering presser foot, use wheel to lower your needle once and then pull up bobbin thread to top surface of your project. Then hold both bobbin and upper thread tails, lower your presser foot, and begin sewing. Release the thread tails after a few stitches.
Hope this helps. Those nasty "thread nests" are a real pain.

Thread tension will not adjust.

Check your setting, you have your stitches set too far apart. Wherever on your machine you see the zigzag stich you will see other stich settings, look at it until you see the right amount of stiches you want.
