That usually is not a do it yourself job, because you have to have the right tools and know how. Only problem is that to get it fixed will cost more than you paid to buy it. You can check in your area.

To load the bobbin with thread do you turn the knob towards you or away my is jammed tight

If you are talking about the "inner" wheel on the handwheel that disables the needle action, you need to turn it counter-clockwise to wind the bobbin. When finished, turn it clockwise to enable stitching.

If the timing is "out", you will not be able to form the chain a sample to see that you have all 4 or 3 threads involved in forming a complete stitch.........if you do, then it is not timing.

My sewing machine shark euro-pro 361 is jammed. Needle will not move. What do I do

See if you can remove the bobbin from the machine. Most likely the bobbin and upper threads are entangled and have trapped the needle. You can remove the presser foot and loosen the needle from the needle bar (as though you are going to remove it). Then if you get a small pair of scissors in there and start nipping thread pieces and removing them with tweezers, you may be able to loosen it up.

WhenI turn the inside nob the needle works but not when I turn the outer nob, it just turns and nothing happens WhenI use the peddle the outernob spins but again the needle doesnt work (nob=handwheel)

On most machines, when the inner wheel is turned counter clockwise, it engages the bobbin winder and disengages the needle movement.

To disengage the bobbin winder and sew, turn the inner wheel clockwise as far as it will go. This should engage the sewing capability and it should work either by hand rotating the large wheel (always counter clockwise!) or with the foot pedal. If it does not, then you most likely need to have your machine serviced.

The needle is not going down all the way

1. Replace the needle with a new one. Make sure the needle is inserted the right direction.
2. Try to move the hand wheel towards you. Does the needle strike the hook (pointed object under bobbin)? It should be very close but not touch.
3. If the needle and hook are stopping the machine at one point as you rotate the hand wheel you will need to get it timed. If it is just barely out of time you may be able to set the needle all the way to the left or right (try both positions) and use only a straight stitch. You may be able to get one type of stitch to work and know the culprit is timing.

The hand wheel is not moving the needle at all

Check the hand wheel. There should be a smaller wheeel in the center of the hand wheel. Make sure it is locked in(turn center wheel clockwise or could be counter clockwise til snug)

I have a singer cxl electronic sewing machine and i have a problem with the needle either not moving or stopping when stitching the larger motifs or the zigzag stitch, somtimes the needle jut moves too...

The needle either not moving or stopping is a sign that the machine is jamming. Here's the answer for the question "My machine is jammed" from the FAQs on Singer's web site at

A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in the hook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. *Always turn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you (clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam your machine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position before you start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam your machine in the bobbin case.

Your description of the needle hitting the plate or foot is an indication that the machine's timing has become unaligned which can be caused as indicated above by turning the hand wheel away from you - the correct way is to *Always turn the hand wheel towards you.

Turned the hand wheel the wrong way (clockwise) and I threw off the timing of the machine. How can I re align the machine? It's a Singer Simple 3116 18 stitch.

I think that all you have to do is put a new 80/12 needle in,that is what they set the timing with, and clean your machine thoroughly, take out your bobbin and brush the area. I do not think that it is your timing from turning your wheel the wrong way,

How do you adjust the stitch length on Consew 226 R-1?

if it is like the other industrial machines I've used, here is the general principle:

On the machine there is a button with no label. Hold button while turning the handwheel toward you. When you feel the button depressl you can adjust the length. Hold the button in the machine and crank the hand wheel back to decrease the length of ths titch and foward to increase it. I usually put a notch on the fly wheel for my standard length with some nailpolish. Release the button and sew to test the length.

Can't pull thread from spool

The sequence of setting up of thread from spool to needle is not complied to actual setting is one factor to be consider it affect the sequence timing of sewing.Particularly some machine are common in starting up threading.fig. shown a basic flow of thread on red color.It maybe a helpful oneb1934dc.jpg

In addition to this the set up of thread to bobbins winder is also need in right place the thread should be in clockwise rotation when coming out to bobbins casing as shown in fig.76e4431.jpg as you can see when thread was pulled out from bobbins winder is moving counter clockwise.If you try to sew, try cotton fabric and set dial to # 3 to 4 and stitch set range to 8 up to 12 depend on layers and thickness,After setting try to sew manually ,turn hand wheel by your hand first,let upper tension catch the lower bobbins tension and arranged thread and insert fabric use hand turning hand wheel several time until stich appear on fabric observed loop thread on lower bobbins on fabric.if accumulation of loop thread on lower adjust upper tension also dial tension gradually until it has a smooth stich appear.
