Question about Brother CS-100-T Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Cannot get the sewing machine to sew along. It wants to stay in one place. Have machine threaded correctly, Set on 01 and I believe the stitch length is set at 5.0. But the space below the stitch length is blank, pushing the button to right of window does nothing.

I would study my manual if I were you, pages 27 and 35 explain your settings pretty clearly. If, you don't have your manual handy, go to www.brother-usa.com and under support and home sewing and embroidery download a free copy of it. You can also call Brother customer service at 1-877-276-8437 and ask them if your machine still gives you grief.

Bernina sewing machine 1630.. Stitch won't stay in. Bobbin thread pulls out ???


Clip the top thread next to the spool. Raise the presser foot and pull the clipped thread DOWN through the needle eye. (Always remove the top thread in this manner. NEVER pull the top thread up!!!)

Now, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread. Verify the thread path is correct.

Set the top tension to the midway point (then tweak the tension by testing).

If the bobbin thread is still pulling out, the top thread tension needs to be tightened. The tension is correct when the top thread and bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric.

When sewing it skips stitches also the thread keeps breaking.


Remove the thread from the machine.
Install a brand new needle.
RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Load and thread the bobbin case & install it. Verify it is correct.
Set the top tension at the midway point.
Re-test your stitch.

Fabric won't move doing straight stitch.


Be sure that the stitch length is set to a higher number. The closer to zero it is set, the closer the stitches will be until zero when it will actually be sewing in one place.

Sews 1/4" and then sews in place


1) remove upper and bottom threads. Try sew without threads.
Is fabric transported corectly?

NO:
- Drop feed dog button is OFF
- Dust under stitch plate
- Transporter malfunction (must be taken for a service to the BERNINA dealer)

YES:
- Upper or bottom thread jammed
- The upper thread tension is too tight.
- Wrong needle used (probably small ...)

I just had my 7470 serviced because the thread tension was messed up. Now as I'm sewing along, the needle will move from center position to left position by itself and then within a few stitched,


the gear or part that holds the needle position in place may either
be getting jarred or is worn,,
try using a different threadThe needle thread breaks
1. the needle thread is not threaded properly
2. The needle thread tension is to tight
3. The needle is bent or blunt
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted
5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew
6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing
7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

also try adjusting the top thread tension
as far as the bright spot, the display could be going out.

sometimes the repair person does not check the machine to
see if the machine is working correctly, because they would have
to charge more and some don't so you have to bring the machine
back more often and that makes them more money.

Won't sew! Loads of top thread bundles up around bobbin casing.


First... make sure you are threading it correctly. It MUST be threaded with the foot up.

Do a test seam. Make sure you put the presser foot DOWN when you sew.

Make sure you grasp and hold the bobbin and top threads as you begin the seam. (this is good practice for any seamstress on any machine.

If you still get loops, tighten top tension.

Also check the bobbin case for burrs. drag a finger nail along edges to feel for it catching. If you find one take a small bit of extra fine sand paper and file it off.

Good luck

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.

The machine isn't making stitches. It's threaded correctly. I have been sewing leather recently and it's been acting up since then. I have cleaned the bobbin area. And have adjusted the tension...


Hello

Adjust the Stitch Length;

To make longer stitches, set the stitch length to a higher number. On many sewing machines, four is the longest possible stitch length and two is average.

To make shorter stitches, set the stitch length to a lower number. At a zero, the sewing machine may not actually make stitches, since the needle will go up and down in one place.

Cut a small scrap of fabric, preferably the same type you want to sew with.

Sew a few test stitches on the scrap. Examine the stitches to make sure they're the length you want.

Adjust the stitch length again as needed.

Machine not sewing


Make sure you have threaded the machine from right to left, it sounds like the needle thread is trapped under the lower looper thread and cannot form a stitch.........start the threading over from scratch like this:

  1. Lower Looper
  2. Upper Looper
  3. Left Needle
  4. Right Needle
Is there a diagram for how to thread on the inside of the door ?

Follow that slowly and carefully to make sure you have not missed any thread guides on the way, as each one needs to be followed through to ensure correct tension and thread progression.

If you are certain that all threaded correctly, did you have a fabric jam and pulled it loose ? If so, the timing may well be affected.

Post an update and we'll get this right.
