Can't figure out how to thread a Singer AK30037


There are generally markings on the machine; if you have followed those, you need to know that before stitching, you must draw the bobbin thread up to the top, and then hold both top and bottom threads loosely when you start up.

I'd like to access the instructional manual on how to operate the Baby Lock 5380E. Specifically, need to learn how to thread it.


try this link
http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Babylock_Manuals/5380-ED_Instruction_Manual.htm

you can purchase many manuals from Sewusa.com and they also have threading diagrams for many makes and models too.

Its always best to have the specific manual for your machine as every make and model is a little different.

Saying that, once you've learned to thread three or four different machines, you can usually figure out a new one as they all have similar functionality, a take up lever, tension device on the top thread, and a bobbin in tension from the bottom. If you visit www.sewing.about.com there is a lot of general sewing machine information there too which may get you started.

Bobbin thread is phooey and loopy


Is it looping on the bottom of the fabric? If so it it probably a top tension issue, try this this quick test.

With the pressure foot up, you should be able to pull the thread easily right before the eye of the needle and when you put the foot down you should then feel a fair bit of tension on the top thread.

If you do not get tension with the foot down, check this:

-set the top tension dial to 5
-raise the pressure before threading the machine
-"floss" the thread by holding the thread as it comes off the spool with your right hand and holding the thread right before the needle. Make sure to do that with the pressure foot up. What happens is sometimes the thread doesn't go into the tension discs all the way due to lint or something else.

hope that helps,
Chris

Bunches of threads on the bottom


Try threading the machine with the presser foot up.

This opens the tension and allows the thread to seat into the tension control.

When the thread is not properly seated, there isn't any tension on the top thread the bobbin thread cannot make a proper stitch with a top thead that is loosey-goosey.

Top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread (Toyota sewing m.)


Hi! This may sound silly, but if you changed your needle and put it in backwards (which is easy to do), the top thread won't pick up the bottom thread. Take your needle out and check the flat side of the needle shank--which way is it facing? With a lot of the newer machines, the flat side goes to the back, but check your manual to make sure.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Happy Sewing!

Juki HZL-E61: cannot get tension right on straight stitch


Loops on the bottom of the fabric direct the problem to the top thread. Rethread again and make sure the thread goes through the tension discs. Lift the foot, because this is what opens the discs. When sewing and the foot is down, the discs should be closed and thus giving the upper thread the tension it needs.

I need a copy of the instruction manual for the Sew Smart Compact Cordless 17390B.


If pictures are helpful, take a look here

This is for a front loading bobbin

You have not mentioned the machine or model, so if this is not like yours, it will be a top loading or drop-in bobbin.

In either event, the idea is to pass the thread thru a small slot and thereby between a tensioning spring......your Instruction manual will have details for your model, tho' with a little thought, any manual for a similar machine (top or front loading) should give you the basic idea.

If you still have troubles, let us know the make & model.

Bunching thread underneath


When your thread is bunching at the bottom, your top tension is not tight enough, or you did not thread the machine correctly. Make sure the thread goes through the tension blades. Check your manual how to do it properly. you can check if there is any tension by pulling on the thread before threading through the eye of the the needle, and with the presser foot down. By pulling with the left hand and adjusting the tension with the right hand you should be able to feel a difference. Normal setting is between 3 and 5
