First, rethread the machine and be sure the thread passes through the take up lever. If it still does the same thing, remove the needle plate to access and remove the bobbin case. Check the bobbin case for burrs, scratches or any rough spots. If you find one it needs to be buffed with an emery stick or sharpening stone until it is smooth and then buffed with some steel wool. Clean out any lint you see and reinstall the parts.

Why does the bobbin case pop out and jam the thread?


First check that the thread in the bobbin is facinf the correct way. Then check tension on top. Also check to see if you have the same thread on top and in bobbin. Also needle and material can cause the bobbin to jump. Make siure that the needle thread stays where it should, if one of the threading sites come undone this can cause bobbin jump too.Hope something here helps.:-)

I have a EURO -PRO model 9110. The bobbin tension is not correct.The top thread can be easily pulled out after sewing.How do I adjust the bobbin tension?


Hi janna

have you tried adjusting the top tension first?
if you have a drop in bobbin then it has to be adjusted at a sewing shop
the bobbin case you take out of the machine you can, using a small screw driver,,here's how
lower bobbin tension--
to test the bobbin tension,
remove the bobbin case & bobbin,,
hold it by suspending it by the thread,,
**** it once or twice,,
if the tension is correct, the thread will unwind by about an inch or two
if the tension is too tight, it does not unwind at all
if the tension is too loose, it will drop too much
to adjust turn small screw on the side of the bobbin
to the left is tighten
to the right is loosen

My wife has a model 9110 sewing machine. It has stop picking up the thread from the bobin. Can you help on this fix?


Put new needle in

Make sure you have a 3-5 inch thread tail on both top thread & bobbin
Then hold the top thread tail with your fingers (away from the needle)
& use the hand wheel on the right hand side of machine & slowly lower needle into bobbin area & see if it will pick up the bobbin thread that way

rethread the bobbin,,also check the bobbin area for lint or loose threads

if none of these suggestions work, then the machine could be out of time & would need to be repaired

The thread in the bobin isn't comming up too the needle. I have removed the face plate and cleaned it out, but it still isn't working. What could this be?


Make sure the needle is facing in the correct direction
Put the bobbin in the bobbin case leaving a
2 to 3 tail.
Thread the top of the machine correctly, leaving a 3 to 4 inch
tail after threading the needle.
Hang on to the end of the upper thread and use the handwheel to drop the needle.
continue to turn the handwheel to raise the needle. Pull on the end of the needle thread and a loop of bobbin thread should come up.
make sure there is no lint or loose thread in the bobbin area

I have singer sewing machine. The black casing the bobbin fits in is supposed to move when sewing, I know, but this seems to move excessively and does not fit in tight enough so that when sewing, it slips...


The black bobbin case that the bobbin sites in is not supposed to move at all, on the right hand side of the bobbin case you will see two screws, if you slacken them off you can push the guide bar closer to the bobbin case leaving enough thread to pass through the gap.

you need a new bobbin case, only problem is finding the right one. I am currently wasting hours trying to find one for our 9110 intelli sew which has needle holes punched through it from where it jumps right out. I think lots of manufacturers know fine which parts fit the Euro-Pro but would like all of us to scrap them and go out and buy theirs!

Won't catch bobbin thread


In order to see whether or not my euro-pro 9110 had a timing issue, the service rep had me change out the needle (making sure I was using anything but a Singer brand needle--they do not work in these machines). I re-threaded the needle, took out the bobbin casing and the plastic ring encasing the bobbin, then lowered the needle to see if the hook on the metal ring holding the bobbin actually catches the thread on its own. If it doesn't catch, it's a timing issue and needs repair. They can walk you through this process of troubleshooting and set up repair if need.

Thread getting caught underneath


you need to replace your shukle that holds the tread bobbing below.it is either slack or broken . if it is slack then you tighten the little screw that holds a cover that gives the thread tension .if its broken then replace it.once the thread is slack below it will cause your thread to bundle up.
