My mercury M337 doesnt sew Runs but the upper thread doesnt hook with the lower thread


Do the feed dogs move when it runs, and does the needle go up and down? if not, it might have been left in "disengaged mode", that is the mode for filling bobbins.

Brother overlock 1034d is not chaining. The upper looper is not passing far enough left to catch the left needle. Makes a "crunchy" sounds some times too.


First re-thread the machine starting with the upper looper(3), then lower looper(4), then the needles(2,1). If that doesn't fix it, it may be a matter of loosening the needle tension. Lastly slowly turn the handwheel and see where the loopers cross. The upper looper should come in just behind the scarf of the lower looper without any contact on the forward motion. Otherwise Your needlebar height could be off. Timing a serger is a very precise process and making adjustments could throw it out even further.

Bernina Record 930 electronic sewing machine will not zigzag


How long has it been since it has been cleaned and oiled? Mechanical machines, like the 930, need frequent oiling with fresh, good quality oil. (You may want to pick up some Bernina oil for CB Hook machines.)

Apply only 1-2 drops of oil in each spot (look for oil ports--little holes where oil should be placed). Do NOT oil in the middle of the needlebar. This is where the basting stitch mechanism resides and if you oil it, the basting stitch may lock up requiring service.

A good suggestion for oiling is to gently rotate the handwheel and watch where metal rubs against metal. Apply a couple of drops of oil in each spot. Do NOT oil the metal cams, the two plastic gears, or the belt. Next, gently move the selector levers and apply oil there too.

If it has been quite some time since you've oiled, you may have to re-apply oil to get things lubed again. If the zig-zag is still not working, you can direct a handheld hairdryer into the internal mechanism and apply heated air. (Be careful, the metal can get hot to the touch!) Repeat the oil and heat until the zig-zag selector begins to work.

The other part that may be frozen is the upper left side where the light bulb resides (you'll have to remove the screws that hold the covering on). Set the machine to zig-zag and move the handwheel and watch where things move there, also work the lever to raise/lower the presser foot. Again, AVOID the middle of the needlebar==basting stitch mechanism.

Your machine should be oiled every time you finish a big sewing job, every time you install a new bobbin, or every six months if not in frequent use. The bobbin race should be oiled more frequently. When you are familiar with your machine, you will recognize the change in the machine's sound and know that it needs some TLC--cleaning/oiling.

Machine jammed estante esi-2 machine wheel will not turn - locked


90% probable the needle arm shaft and bearings are jamming. This requires the needlebar and the take up lever drive to be disassembled from the upper shaft: probably $100 effort by a sewing machine repair person.10% probable the hook mechanism is jammed.The only way to identify the source is to separate the top drive shaft from the bottom drive shaft. Again this is repair shop acitivity but if you want to try it. Take off the end cover, and with a market mark the belt drive gear positions with reference to something static. Slip off the timing belt. If the hand wheel turns then the problem is in the hook area. If not it is in the needlebar area.Either way, your machine is not working and really the best solution is to spend the $$'s at your local sewing machine shop.....unlike an iPad or iPhone you can have these machines fixed locally.

I need help in adjusting the feed dogs, they messed up when I adjusted the timing for the needle and bobbin.


When the sewing machine is properly timed, all the parts work together in a seamless flow of coordination. The needle moves from it highest point down toward the needle plate. The feed dogs reach the farthest point toward the back of the sewing machine. The feed dogs drop under the needle plate. This is just before the needle point reaches the needle plate. The needle continues to move down dragging the upper thread under the needle plate. It proceeds toward its lowest point.
The needle begins its rise back up. A loop of thread forms along the back of the needle. A special cut out on the back of the needle to accommodate this loop is called the scarf. The sewing machine hook slides behind the needle. The point of the hook slides into the thread loop and pulls the thread around the bobbin. The bobbin thread and upper thread wrap together. The needle and hook proceed through their actions under the needle plate. The feed dogs move under the needle plate from back to front.

The needle proceeds to rise again up out of the bobbin area exiting the needle plate. At the same time the feed dogs rise up out from under the needle plate. They begin to move from front to back as the needle continues to rise.
The thread from the bobbin flows through a bobbin tensioner providing resistance to the thread as it is drawn up by the upper thread knot. The upper thread is also under tension. This comes from the upper tension, thread guides, tension spring, and sewing machine take up lever.
The thread from top and bobbin grow increasingly tighter until they form a locked stitch in the middle of the fabric. This process is repeated for every stitch.
How do you adjust sewing machine timing?

The needle, hook, and feed dogs must move in harmony. If they fail to do so, the machine will not perform as expected. When the hook is just slightly out of time with the needle, you will notice skipped stitches. This may begin on only one side of the zig zag stitch or intermittently. If the timing is just a bit more out of sync, stitch formation will become impossible.
If the feed dog timing is out of sync, the fabric will not move through the machine as expected. Threads may bunch up or the fabric may just not move.
As you can see, timing is everything.

I have a coverstitch PF857 and I have broken the upper over edge looper I have sent for the spare part but been told it must be set what does this mean and how do I do this


There are many adjustments which can be made: up, down, twist right or left, slide front or back. The main question is why did the looper break? The needlebar, upper and lower looper and the needle guard all must be in perfect syncronization. The upper looper must be set so that, on its movement to the right, ever so slightly brushes the needles. Then, as it travels upward, it must cross behind the lower looper at just the right spot as close as possible without touching. If you are very mechanically inclined, give it a shot. If not, the risk of further damage is high.

How do i oil my bernina 801?


Please do not oil anything with WD40, it is an alcohol based cleaner hense why it's flammable. No where on the container will it say anything about lubricating, it will merely dry out your machine. We use it, but only to clean metal parts... we then clean it off and let it evaporate for a day before applying oil.

There are two key points I suggest customers can do themselves to help lengthen the life of their machine. One is your hook and the other is the needle bar...
Hook - Open your bobbin door, removee the bobbin case/bobbin. On the upper left corner there is a small latch, push in the latch and your shuttle race ring will fall down forward. You can now remove your stainless steel hook. You need to keep this hook clean and the lip it fits back into clean and void of lint and debris. On the back of this hook or the "lip" that the hook fits back into apply a small amount of hook/sewing machine oil.
Needle Bar - Open up your head cover, the needle and needle bar clamp is attached to a long stainless steel rod that travels vertically inside your head. All sewing machines have a needle bar that looks like this. This bar travels thru two brackets attached to the frame of the machine. Rotate your handwheel and clean the needle bar well of debris. Rotate the handwheel so that the needlebar is in it's highest point and apply a small amount of oil to the upper and lower bracket of the frame, rotate the handwheel so the needlebar slides back down and therefore lubricating it and the inside of the brackets.
Hook oil or sewing machine oil is relatively inexpensive from all quilt, sewing machine, repair shops. Be sure to take your machine in a minimum of every three years for proper cleaning and lubricating of all the other parts (This is of course for average home sewing machine use 8hours a week)

Fixing my Brother sewing machine


Hi teranm...If it is indeed a timing issue, you should use a technician to correct it. If your "someone" continues to "look at it", and begins to understand the timing process, and discovers how readily accessible the Set Screws are, they may want to chance it. But what they will not perceive until it's too late, is that on Oscillating Hooks, such as what you have, once you loosen the set screws on the Hook, you now have a Distance Issue to keep your Timing Issue company. The tolerance of distance is much more minute than timing tolerance....good luck my friend.
