It will not sew

My machine has been a trouble since I bought it, and I have not been able to use it ever.... I tried it again last night, but enede up with the same problem: It will not sew. I think I have followed the instructions correctly and I have good experince sewing with other machines.
What can it be that I do wrong?

    cannot get the Yamata FY700 to sew, I think the problem is with threading up the machine. The instruction book shows a part which doesn't seem to exist on my machines

SEWING MACHINES ARE TRICKY...JUST ONE LITTLE THING AND THEY DON'T WORK. SINCE YOU SAY IT JUST WON'T SEW LETS START AT THE BEGINNING. FIRST, I WILL ASSUME THAT THE BOBBINS YOU ARE USING AND THE NEEDLES CAME WITH THE MACHINE WHEN IT WAS NEW. O.K. NOW, TENSION MAKES YOUR MACHINE SO IT CAN SEW. YOU HAVE TO WIND YOUR BOBBINS WITH THE CORRECT TENSION, OR YOU WILL A BEAUTIFUL STITCH ON TOP AND YOUR MACHINE WILL STOP DEAD WITH A MESS ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR CLOTH. YOUR MACHINE MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE A TENSION SPRING THAT NEEDS TO BE SET WHEN YOU THREAD YOUR MACHINE, BUT MOST NEW MACHINES DO NOT HAVE IT. WHEN YOU PUT YOUR BOBBIN INTO THE HOLDER, MAKE SURE YOU ARE PUTTING IT IN THE CORRECT WAY--IT WON'T WORK IF IT IS IN BACKWARDS. NEEDLES, THE WRONG NEEDLE CAN CAUSE YOUR MACHINE NOT TO WORK. A NEEDLE THAT IS SLIGHTLY BENT WILL NOT WORK. ON YOUR BOBBIN HOLDER, THERE IS A SCREW, MAYBE SOMEONE MISADJUSTED IT. THIS WILL MAKE YOUR MACHINE NOT WORK. IF YOU HAVE DINGS IN YOUR PLATE, IT WILL CUT YOUR THREAD AS YOU SEW, YOU NEED TO USE A PIECE OF CROCUS CLOTH TO FILE THEM DOWN. THESE HAPPEN WHEN A NEEDLE GETS BENT AND HITS THE PLATE INSTEAD OF GOING DOWN TO GRAB THE THREAD FROM THE BOBBIN. MAYBE SOMEONE IN A LOCAL SEWING SHOP, OR QUILT SHOP CAN HELP YOU BETTER, AS MACHINE PROBLEMS ARE HARD TO DIAGNOSE WITHOUT HAVING THE MACHINE TO NOODLE WITH IN FRONT OF YOU. MAYBE ONE OF MY IDEAS WILL HELP...I HOPE SO.

Singer 400 will not power on


Try turning the power switch on with the embroidery unit in place, insert the foot control. Then turn the power switch off, remove the foot pedal and turn the power on again. If that doesn't work, try inserting the foot pedal with the power switch in the off position, withdrawing it, then turning the power switch on.

Your motor was designed to shut itself down if it overheats or if stitching was interrupted. For instance, if your needle hit something solid and the needle bent or broke.

Generally, it will go on again in 10 minutes to 2 hours, depending on what the cause was. Occasionally, it can take longer. Using the foot pedal tends to reset the motor. I discovered this by accident one night, when I assumed that it was a Reset port and gently stuck the eraser end of a pencil in it until I felt resistance, then withdrew it. The machine had only shut down for about 3 minutes, but it turned right on again.

Take it all apart, and clean the machine. Then re-thread, re-thread bobbin, set to normal sewing and try it. Then set to zigzag and try again. Without knowing what machine you have it will be hard to trouble shoot for you

Service the machine yourself to begin with, oil all moving parts with wd40 and then try, something may be seizing up through lack of oil or overheating

Just bought my new machine yesterday and excited to start using it. I read over the manual last night. There is a DVD but only the audio is working on it. How can I get a new DVD or is this something...


not sure why dvd wont work unless you bought machine online from another country? if you did, double check voltage on it is same as yr power supply. now to get started, visit youtube or www.sewing.about.com and check out general sm info if you are a newbie. debbie has simple projects online which you might want to make as starters, such as a cushion cover or apron. if you have never sewen then consider taking a class or two to learn skills such as cutting out a pattern and garment assembly. for now why not wind a bobbin, thread up refering to manual and try stitching straight stitch seam and then zig zag the raw edges. enjoy!

The bobbin on my Husqvarna sewing machine (Viking 100) is stuck on the bobbon winder


If your bobbin still has thread on it, remove it by hand and then try to pull the bobbin off the winder.
