Question about Baby Lock Imagine

1 Answer

I can not thread my machine. I can push 1 inch of thread into the port, push the pump, which works, but I can not disengage the lever. So therefore it does not thread.

There should be a button which you press while turning the handwheel toward you. This usually disengages the lever.

Singer 4423 feed dogs are not working properly. Tested and verified that this happens without any thread in the machine. The dogs are not lowered. We've cleaned it and still no luck.


Now, I'm assuming that you pushed the feed dog lever in the back to the left successfully. If you couldn't make it move, try pushing the lever down and then to the left. You don't see any difference when that happens, because the feed dogs are actually ALWAYS down -- during ordinary sewing, they rise up to grab and push the fabric, then go down again. Turn the hand wheel (ALWAYS towards you) while looking at the feed dogs and see if they rise up during the cycle. I'll bet you DID lower them, but didn't realize it. What is actually does when you lower them is disengage the mechanism that makes them go up and down.

One more thing -- to set them in the up position again, you have to set the lever, then turn the hand wheel several times -- sometimes as much as five cycles -- and then you'll hear a click. That is true of ALL sewing/embroidery machines.

My Juki MO-655 serger will sew a few inches then the needle thread becomes disengaged in the stitch process. The machine will sew a few inches more then stops making stitches. I have cleaned the thre


Make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Make sure you are using serger thread that isn't old. Make sure you are undoing all the threads when it breaks and thread it from the beginning.

Make sure you have the right needles in their respective places. My Juki MO has two different size needles.

How to guide thread on kenmore 158.13201


Most machines are very, very similar, therefore, no matter what brand you own, there's basically the same steps to follow: 1. Place good quality thread on spool pin, back right-hand side of machine and raise presser foot UP. 2.Pull thread taut from spool.Make sure silver take-up lever raised to highest position. 3. Guide thread under first tension disc. 4. Hold thread taut, guiding thread into next tension disc. When you get to the take-up leaver (silver lever on right side of machine that has a hole at the top--hold thread taut guiding it from right to left through hole, bring thread down left side of it, and put thread into tension bracket, hold thread taut! Put thread in back of needle into another small bracket and pull thread towards you. Time to thread needle: put thread front to back into eye of needle. Put thread under presser foot and pull under the center of it a good 6".Lower presser foot on scrap of fabric to test. Turn hand wheel toward you to lower needle into fabric scrap. Use foot (or knee depending on machine) to start machine. Do not pull or push fabric but gently guide it. Jimmy Place fabric scrap under needle. Low

ON MY 385 I CANNOT GET THE BOBBIN TO WIND THREAD


I know that it sounds silly but do you have your thread facing the right way? And around the guide the right way? And your clutch disengaged, either on the handwheel and or the bobbin pin lever pushed to the right? Are you holding the tail of the thread for at least 3-4 spins, the releasing? The only other thing could be that the tension looper is disengaged somehow. Good luck, seems like a major pain. I ended up buying a bobbin winder for about $30 for my mother's old machine, she is happy.

Top thread won't pull up the bottom thread


make sure needle is in with flat facing back and pushed all the way up in needle holder. thread needle from front to back, and ensure a bobbin with thread is correctly inserted in machine with approx 2-3 inches of thread hanging off it.

wind machine over (top of handwheel toward you) gently holding the needle thread (do not hold taught or hook may not catch loop underneath needle plate) and the bottom thread should come wrapped around the needle thread after you have turned 1 revolution and stopped with takeup lever at top.

if you have done all of this and the bobbin thread will not come up, try sewing on scrap fabric and see if the stitches are correctly formed. if so all is good, if not, it sounds like your hook timing is out and will require a tech to repar.

goodluck,

scott.

Automatic threader does not take the thread. I


Open the front cover and raise presser foot to release all threads. Depress the machine lock button firmly with your left index finger. At the same time manually rotate the machine hand wheel slowly forward until he button "snaps" into the locked position and the lock button release lever moves to the far left.

Persistant beeping


Look for the buttonhole lever, just behind the needle threader lever. Pull it down and push it up again. The machine gives a warning message if you want to sew and the button hole lever is down. Good luck!

Make sure you have the machine threaded for the bobbin and not threaded through the sewing path. Also, check to make sure that the bobbin is pushed directly against the post as far as possible.

How do you thread the machine, top and bottom, please.


From the Simplicity Sew Precious Model SWSP2 manual:

Inserting a new bobbin:
  1. Place wound bobbin into the bobbin case.
  2. Pull about 6 inches of thread out from the bobbin.
NOTE: Be sure that the bobbin rotates COUNTER-CLOCKWISE when thread is pulled.
  1. Pass the thread from the bobbin, under the bobbin case spring, and toward the back of the machine.
  2. Slide bobbin cover back into position.

Upper threading:
  1. Turn the handwheel toward you to raise the take-up lever to its highest position.
  2. Lower the presser foot.
  3. Place a spool of thread and spool cap on the spool pin.
  4. Place the thread into the first thread guide at the top of the machine.
  5. Bring the thread down the right slot of the threading path, then around the tension dial. Push the thread tension release lever and pull the thread up so the thread is secure in the thread tension dial.
  6. Bring the thread up the left slot of the threading path and through the take-up lever from right to left.
  7. Bring the thread back down the left slot of the threading path and into the needle eye from front to back. (Clip the thread end with sharp scissors fro easier needle threading.)

Raising the bobbin thread
  1. Make sure the presser foot lever is raised.
  2. Hold the end of the needle thread with your left hand. Turn the hand wheel toward you with your right hand until the needle goes down once and comes back up, stopping when the needle is at its highest position.
  3. Gently pull up on the needle thread. The bobbin thread, looped around the needle thread, will be drawn up through the needle hole.
  4. Push the thread tension release lever and pull about six inches of both the upper and lower threads toward the back of the machine, placing them under the presser foot.
