Question about Vacuums

Open Question

I have a Pfaff Classic Style 2025. After clearing a thread jam in the bobbin area, the machine will not sew. It works without thread, but I think the bobbin case is crooked. The bobbin opening is off to the right, not up, as it needs to be.

SOURCE: sewing machine won't pick up bobbin thread

open the bobbin case and see if the hook is turning, if it is it is just a timing problem with the hook and needle, if it isn't tuning you may have a broken gear or timing belt.....It eill need to be looked at or adj by someone who repairs them....Daniel

I had the same problem straight out of the box. I decided to buy a new machine and came across the 4166. It had more than enough functions and seemed to run smoothly. I too have problems with the bobbin not threading so I took it back into the store thinking I was doing something wrong. The saleswoman had the same problem. I was going to exchange it for another but before leaving I wanted to check to see if it worked. Again, same problem so I left without a machine. I spoke to the owner only to be told that 30% Singer machines are lemons and have to be returned for servicing because they don't work from the start. This is a waste of money and time.
The only suggestion I can offer is to either forget about the machine or take it into be serviced.

Make sure you're using a polyester thread (I use maxilock serger thread) then a stretch needle, and hold the tails of your thread until you get started into the seam so the fabric cannot push down into the opening on the throat plate.

Also, a small zigzag stitch (about 1.8 - 2.0 wide) is good to use on lycra as that will allow the fabric to stretch after the garment is made.

This is stuff I've used with my 6500P and other previous Janome machines in making Ice Skating outfits.

Hi I have a Janome 419S or 423S, the problem seems to be my hook race unit keeps getting loose and then the thread jams up. What can be done? Please


A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in thehook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towardsyou (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. Alwaysturn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you(clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam yourmachine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position beforeyou start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam yourmachine in the bobbin case. If youhave an older model sewing machine with a shuttle hook, then you can alsofollow these: 1. Disconnect the sewing machine from any power source.Loosen the thumb screw on the left side of the sewing machine body and removethe cover to expose the needle bar. This is the shaft that extends down andthat you attach a needle to for sewing. Open the shuttle race and remove the bobbinand bobbin case. 2. Turn the hand wheel toward you until the needle hasreached the lowest point of the stroke. The hook should be at the top of itsstroke inside the shuttle race. Loosen the set screw for the needle bar on theupper part of the machine, this is located on the needle bar bushing (thecollar that the needle bar slides through when making a stitch). The needle barshould slide easily up and down. 3. Turning the wheel again, adjust the position of the tipof the needle so that the upper part of the needle eye is just below the bottomedge of the hook inside the shuttle race. Once in position, re-tighten the setscrew on the needle bar bushing. Do not allow the needle bar to slip whiledoing this. 4. Replace the bobbin and bobbin case and close the shuttlerace. Thread and plug in your machine. Using a sizable scrap of cloth, sew aseam to check to see if there are any skips in the stitching. If there arestill skips re-adjust the timing again until you can sew without any skipped stitches. 5. When proper timing has been achieved replaces the coveron the needle bar and tighten the thumb screw. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

What is the difference between a sewing machine and a serger?


Well..... A serger (or overlock) sews a different, and usually more complex stitch. Where a sewing machine usually only uses two threads to make the stitch, a serger can use two, three, four or even five threads and will sew around the edges of the work piece, as well as trimming the edge of the work just ahead of the sewing area, or as you feed the work in, the trimming takes place first. Sergers also make a stronger seam, attributable to more thread / stitching in the seam. Sergers are versatile and quick, but one drawback is the fact that sergers make a chain stitch instead of a lock stitch, like a machine with a bobbin, and lock stitches can be pulled out, like the stitching that used to close dog food bags and bags of charcoal. A lock stitch is just what it sounds like, it can't be pulled out. You only get a lock stitch with a machine that uses a bobbin, and sergers don't use bobbins. That fact makes serging desirable for the speed of production. Changing bobbins takes up a lot of time, even if you are using pre-wounds. Hope this helps!

Thread jamming on Viking 5710 sewing machine


Check to see if the bobbin is wound in the right direction. Check to see if the bobbin case area is free of lint and debris. Has it been a while since you last used it? Check to make sure it is threaded correctly by following the arrows if this is a newer sewing machine. Last. Thread direction through the needle can be wrong. Vikings usually thread front to back. If you recently changed a broken needle, it could have been replaced in the wrong direction. make sure the flat edge of the needle is fed into the corrosponding flat area inside the needle case. I hope this helps you!

Excessive thread under fabric...jams up the machine. Have rethreaded, replaced needle, rewound bobbin...no difference. Sews a few stitches then under thread just gets jammed in machine. Viking 1100.


So the underside looks more like a **** rug? 2 things to try. The problem is the bobbin. try flipping the bobbin over (take it out, turn it over and put it back in). The writing on the bobbin printed in the plastic should be on the top and no writing on the underside. 2nd,make sure it's threaded front to back and not looped around the needle. I have the same machine~it did that too!

HAVING A PROBLEM WITH MACHINE JAMMING UP AROUND BOBBIN AREA WHEN TRYING TO FREEHAND EMBROIDER IT STARTS OFF OK THEN QUICKLY JAMS UP HAVE ADJUSTED THE FOOTPLATE SO THERE ARE NO TEETH


Check your tension first by sewing a wide zig zag stitch. Does the top of the stitch and the bottom look identical? The sides of the stitch should look like a hole where the thread disappears to the other side, with no extra thread from the other side coming through. It also should lie flat and not be puckering in the middle. When it looks identical and no puckering the tension is correct. Use the same type of material and thread you will be using for the embordery. The bottom side of the stitch is effected by the TOP tension. The top side of the stitch by the BOTTOM tension.

Are you stretching the material you're hand embordering with a hoop?

The dog feed needs to be totally down and if your machine has an adjustment the tension on the foot should be lessened too. (not all machines allow for that adjustment).

Last but not least make sure you have the right needle for the job and material.

Jamming up in the bobbin area would most likely be from the top tension being too loose but also make sure the material isn't getting pulled down in by stretching it with an embordery hoop. Do use a presser foot... a wide clear one is best.

It dose not sew, and when it dose the bobbin tangles up and lets out too much thread


The bobbin goes into the holder in what would appear to be the wrong direction ie, the thread doubles back. If this is correct, the bobbin tension might be too low, there is a screw on the bobbin holder to set the tension.

I have a brother project runway limited edition sewing machine and there is a constant jam with the bobbin threading and I have cleaned it,removed the sewing plate and everything I can possibly think of....


Hi

The usual cause is that there is a problem with the upper threads, often it is not caught in the tension discs. When you thread the machine, make sure that the presser foot is raised - this causes the tension discs to open so the thread can seat itself properly.

Another possibility is that the thread isn't in the take up lever - the hook thingy that goes up and down. Sometimes the thread will just slip out.

Thanks
