SOURCE: sewing backwards

Yes, this is a problem that a trained Viking repairman needs to resolve. It might need to have the zero feed position adjusted.

its the sensor on the bobinwinder who are loose. If you are handy. you can remove the top cover of the machine.
And on the left side of the bobinwinder you will find a micro switch. Probably you have to tighten the screw on it..

Be sure you are in the correct stitch pattern...if you are on a buttonhole stitch or a stretch stitch it normal for the machine to sew backwards. Be sure your length is to the right of 0 and not in a strtch stitch model or buttonhole mode.

SOURCE: Upper thread wraps around bobbin mechanism, while sewing

IT PROBABLY IS THREADED INCORRECTLY. GO SLOWLY BY THE DIAPHRAGM AND MAKE SURE IT IS THREADED CORRECTLY. ALSO MAKE SURE SPOOL PIN HOLDERS ARE IN PLACE THAT HELPS TO GUIDE THE THREAD CORRECTLY.

SOURCE: Viking sewing machine model 6430 will only sew backwards

bbragg77 is mostly correct. It is not the camstack. Although they will crack, but that is all together another problem. It is the stitch length/reverse mech. You can manually work it back and forth to free it and I like to use break cleaner to get it free then re lubricate. A good service shop can put you back in business. And yes Viking does not support 6000 series machines any longer.

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.

Needle was hitting bobbin casing - reply was that the machine needs a hook timing adjustment - can I make this adjustment or do I need an expert?


Sounds like it's advanced.... but take it in and have it done professionally... have him lube and clean and check for cracked parts while you are at it.

White model 445 material won't feed?????


Hi Jason. I wonder if you have your feed dogs lowered. It's near the bobbin area.

Here's a pdf of your manual. It talks about "drop feed" on book page 19

Good luck

I have a brother ls-2125 sewing machine. the upper thread is not catching the bobbin thread properly. help please


  1. Tension
    • Your sewing machine tension controls the rate at which the thread is fed through either the upper section of your machine or through the bobbin case. If your upper or bobbin threads aren't threading properly, sometimes adjusting the tension will correct this problem.
    Timing
    • Your sewing machine works by passing the upper thread through the needle of the sewing machine at precisely the same time the bobbin brings its thread to its uppermost position. If either the needle or the bobbin thread reach these positions too soon or too late, the threads won't interact and create the knots that make the seam. You can throw off your timing by sewing too many layers of fabric or hitting a pin with your needle. See you sewing machine repair facility to correct any timing issues.
    Thread
    • Thread can get snagged or caught in the upper section of your machine or on lint pieces in the lower bobbin section. If your threads aren't catching properly, you may be able to fix it by unthreading and rethreading both your upper thread and bobbin threads.

The bobbin thread wont come up when lowering the needle


The bottom thread won't come up?
Make sure you:
-Have the top threaded and through the eye of the needle (Basics are best to check, I've missed it once or twice! lol)
-Are holding the tail of the top thread when you lower your needle and pull it back up (Hold it too tight though, and it might not grab)
-Have an inch or two of "tail" or extra thread for the needle to grab on your bobbin thread (sometimes it won't grab if there's not much there)
-Have all your lower pieces in and secure. (Mine tend to jump around if I'm not putting 'em in right)
If it's still not grabbing, I'm not sure. Sorry, hope it helps.

After replacing the bobbin the sewing hook/bobbin doesnt turn anymore. It will spin if you turn the wheel backwards but it wont do anything when turned forward.


Did the machine get jammed? Maybe the timing belt clutch came disconnected. Look on the bottom of the machine while turning the hand wheel and see if the lower horizontal shaft is turning at the left end. If not, you have to regage the clutch. Let me know if this the case.

The needle will not go all the way down to start sewing It seems to get stuck part way. I can turn it backward but it won,t move forward. I don,t know whether the bobbin mechanism is stuck or what


Do not turn it backwards because you will mess up the timing, which may already be the case. I would try taking out the bobbin completely and unthreading and see if it turns then. If not, you may have to take it in for service.

My machine is sewing with the bobbin thread on the top, it seems to be reversed. How do I fix this?


Bobbin is installed backwards. Check the rotation of the thread when you install the bobbin. look at the picture on the machine. In most cases you can just flip the bobbin over. hope this was helpful

Consew 206rb-1 thread was caught in the boobin area i removed


Had the same problen today, Remove your bobbin, the part where the bobbin is in should move a little, if it does not you have string you can not see behind that part. To get it out turn the machine backwards, it will really turn hard, but will turn, do this until you can see the thread come out or until the piece that holds the bobbin will move a little. good luck
