Question about Yamata FY700 Mechanical Sewing Machine
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?
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.
