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

SOURCE: my singer 4166 sewing machine won't pick up the bo...

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.

Can not catching the bobbin tread at the bottom


The bobbin may be in backwards
the needle is not the correct one for the machine
the needle isn't correctly seated in the needle clamp
the machine is a little bit out of time.
Remember to hang on to the needle thread when you're trying to pick up the bobbin thread
Turn the handwheel in the direction that would advance the fabric from the front to the back of the machine
make sure the bobbin-winding spindle has been pushed back to the left for sewing
make sure your needle is inserted correctly as far as it will go with the flat side facing back
and that the upper tension disks of your machine are threaded correctly.
Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension.
Turn the hand wheel (TOWARDS YOU ONLY) never turn the hand wheel away from you and hold the needle thread lightly. .
pull the loop up and then pull both threads (top and bobbin) under the foot and toward the back of the machine.
Also could be a timing problem

The tension of the thread on top and bottom is not equal. How do you adjust the bottom thread to make it equal to the top?


Hello

First locate the sewing machine tension gauge. Sometimes its called a knob or a button or found on your Touch Screen if you have a computerized machine. Refer to your manual if you can't find it.

Either your needle thread is too tight or your bobbin thread is too loose.

First check that your bobbin thread hasn't slipped out of its tension spring in the bobbin case.

If the bobbin thread is correctly threaded through the tension spring, then decrease your needle tension by 1 number. Test by stitching several inches on your small quilt sandwich. Keep decreasing the tension until no needle thread is visible on the quilt top.

If sewing machine tension problems occur during the middle of a quilting session, again, first refer to the checklist above. Once you're satisfied that your sewing machine is threaded properly and your needle is not the culprit, then adjust the tension as outlined above.

If you have just started testing your quilting thread choices and you are using different threads for the needle and bobbin, you will in all probability make adjustments to your tension.

Make a small quilt sandwich from the materials used in your quilt to make this sandwich. It doesn't have to be pretty or even pin basted. It should be just big enough to test some of the stitching you plan to do on your quilt.

I received singer sewing machine 2623 machine and I do not have the manual. How can I get it and how do I fill the bobbin


Singer has manuals for most of their sewing machines available at their site. For the 2623, the manual is only available as a bound copy for $15. Go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals and enter the model number then click Search.

I believe on this model, you fill the bobbin with it on the metal pin on the top right of the machine. With a metal presser foot in place, bring the thread up and around the guide that pin. Wrap the thread a few times around the bobbin. Set the lever to the bobbin winding position and begin winding. Stop and trim the excess thread from your initial wraps after it is fully caught. Then complete winding the bobbin.

(On other Singer machines, you fill the bobbin in place with the bobbin cover moved halfway open.)

I hope this helps.

Jc penny model 1710 sewing machine, the stitching isnt tight


You do not say if it is the top stitches or the bottom stitches for the bottom tension, check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.
For the top stitch, tighten up on the tension adjustment on the front of the machine which looks something like this:-

I just got a new machine (new to me anyway) new home hf106 model. i need to thread the bobbin on the new thead i am using and am not sure where to put the empty bobbin and how to thread it. help!


Janome New Home?

Unfortunately, Janome doesn't put the manuals for older machines on their website. Your best bet is to contact your local Janome sewing machine dealer and ask for a "copy" of the manual from them. A photo copy should be sufficient for your purposes. Otherwise I understand you'll have to buy a manual and wait to have it shipped.

But carefully look at your New Home. On the top toward the right there should be a fitting that looks like the bottom half of a spool. and next to it is a thing that almost looks like a mushroom.

Put the spool of thread on the spool holder, run the tread to and around the tension discs on top then thread the end through the hole in your empty bobbin. Place the bobbin on the thing that looks like a half a spool and push the whole thing to the right toward the "mushroom."

Press start, or hit the foot feed. Wind slowly for best results.

When full, stop and move the bobbin winder back to the Left (sewing mode)

Now... hold your bobbin between your right thumb and fore finger... pull the thread a few inches... your thread should be coming off the LEFT side of the spool, if not flip it over and try again. Open the bobbin area, drop it in with the thread coming off the left to the bobbin.

hold bobbin still with right index finger and with left hand slip the tread between the bobbin race's tension spring then if your model has a channel for the tread... follow it... otherwise pull straight back, replace the bobbin cover on the machine.....

Thread top thread then use the hand wheel to take up the bobbin thread.

(Of course this all assumes your New Home is similar to my janome or brother.) Have fun!

Be sure to get some good needles.... ;)

My sewing machine is otherwise perfect..but the stitches hv a tiny dot from the thread in the bobbin case...wat to do??


Tighten the bottom thread or loosen the top thread a little. There should be a little screw on the bobbin holder where you can adjust bottom thread tension.

I have a model 605d ,the machine work fine except it will not sew! i look over the machine it look ok ! i am found out that top spool thread and the bottom bobbin thread are not coming together to sew!


You have to do the first stitch using the handwheel so that the top thread catches under the bobbin thread and then you can pull the top thread which will bring up the bobbin thread. put both threads to back of machine. Now you can sew.

Every time you re-thread you need to do this.
