When I have this problem, I turn the knob back and forth (gently) to try to get the needle to release and lift. I get this error message when the needle has shifted (either in the fabric or from using the machine alot at the needle placement shifts).
check your needle, it probably has shifted a bit.

Singer 7442 won't stitch at all. It picks up the bobbin thread nicely, but after that won't stitch at all. Any suggestions?


Sound like one or the other of the threads is stuck. Completely un- thread your machine and remove the bobbin. See if the needle moves freely with the machine unthreaded. If it does, carefully rethread the machine and reinsert the bobbin, making sure the bobbin thread is feeding the correct direction. Let us know what happens.

I have an error E4 on my Singer Sewing Machine. I have searched the manual and cannot find anything on this error. I have only used my machine a few times. It is brand new.


if it's still under warrenty I suggest taking the machine back.
try changing the needle
try turning the bobbin the opposite direction
if you have a front or side loading bobbin case try reinserting
the bobbin case back in the machine
or it could be the motherboard has gone bad, or the foot pedal

My 6003 Elna machine stop and says stop for safety purposes How do I get it unlock from that It wont do anything


This is usually what happens if the bobbin case gets dislodged, its just held in place by a magnet but if you have a jam up, often gets moved out of position. Remove top metal plate, take out bobbin, and have a look at the bobbin case, should be two metal markers or red dotsmfront side that align. Lift the case out by grasping edge and lifting up and towards you, clean underneath with the little brush, remove any jammed up threads, then return case to position, aligning the marks.

Tension problem on Brother ES 2000


I have a Brother CE 4000 Computer sewing machine. I had the same problem when I first used it. I worked with it several hours but to no avail so I decided to stop and wait until my head clear..

I went back a couple of days later. Reread the manual and started over. I discovered my problem was that I was threading the bobbin wrong. Once I threaded it precisely as the manual stated it worked fine.

So this might be your problem. Make sure that the thread on the bobbin is wind on properly. It should be wound evenly. The bobbin must be threaded precisely as the manual says.
Try rethreading the bobbin and the machine
and see if that help.

Take out your bobbin case and examine it for nicks, scratches and or rough spots.If the problem is not too bad it may be possible to buff out the bad spot with an emery stick or emery cloth. If that isn't possible or it makes too much noise after you buff it you will have to replace it. Look especially along the edges and underneath.
