Have you lifted out the bobbin case and replaced it in position? These cases are held in position with a magnet and sometimes will dislodge and turn a little which then causes the error message.

Your manual should cover lifting the case out and putting it back in - it will lift out towards you and goes back in matching up a marker on the case and the stopper in the holder.

Bobbin thread will not catch on heavier materials but will catch on lightweight


You need a heavier needle, and if you can adjust your presser foot to increase the pressure, that would be helpful too. The needle is just not getting through enough to catch the bobbin thread. The higher the needle number, the longer the needle.

Husqvarna lily bobbin tension issues


Not sure if I can help, but it may have to do with the heavy thread as well as the fabric and needle combination. If the fabric is thick or tightly woven, be sure to use a brand new sharp needle. (If the fabric is tightly woven (like Batik), a thicker thread may present a problem.) In your case, if using a heavier thread, perhaps a top-stitch needle would be beneficial since it has a bigger scarf to protect the thread. With the heavier thread in the top, the top tension will need to loosened. BUT, if you loaded the heavier thread in the bobbin, the bobbin tension will need to be adjusted to accommodate the thread thickness. However, remember that if you adjust the bobbin tension for this project, you will most likely need to readjust it for the next project using different materials.

FWIW, if the machine still works fine with regular fabric and thread, then you'll know that the issues revolve around the current project.

I have a Euro Pro Shark Automatic. It works perfectly as a rule. I am trying to sew heavier material than usual - new inserts for my exterior sling chairs. The thread is heavier nylon and it catches on...


Most domestic sewing machines will not handle heavier thread than the standard 50 weight. I'd suggest you go back to regular polyester sewing thread and use a 110 or 120 size needle to cope with the heavier fabric. Sew slowly and give it some help on the flywheel when crossing a seam allowance. Maybe stitch each seam twice, with a 1mm gap between to give it strength.

If you need to use the heavier thread to do the job then you will probably need an industrial sewing machine that can handle that grade of fabric and thread. Something like a Singer 20U machine in a table with seperate motor drive.

Fabrics like Canvas, ticking and PVC for exterior items are generally going to be beyond the functionality of a domestic machine and you can damage the machine, particularly the timing by trying.

Is it o.k. to use heavy duty thread on the top and regular thread in the bobbin? Also, I went to the address you reccomended for a manual but the url could not be located?


Up to a point it is OK to use a heavier thread on the top with your regular thread on the bottom. If you go too heavy with the thread you might notice thread locks on the underside of material. Tightening the the tension on the top thread will usually solve this issue. However if thread is too lheavy you will not be able to adjust for tension issues. You may also find that a "too" heavy thread will catch under the throat plate. Good luck.

Needle stops when it goes into the machine.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Is the bobbin case pushed all the way in? Is your needle up too high or down too low in the needle holder? The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the thread completely from the machine. The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool and then re-thread the machine. Try lowering it a little and see if that helps and use a scrap of material to test it out. Make sure the flat part of the needle rests on the flat part of the holder. You probably need to insert a new needle. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Thread breaks right away and is all bunched up on the bottom stitch


ok u have a tension problem with the top of you system. also make sure that all thread is caln and no little pieces remain a cleanign kit should of come with your machinee. re thread both of the threads and pull on them there tension shoud be close to one another. use the top tensioner to adjust the top threads tension to amtch the bobbins this should fix the problem. also makle sure yoru not jerking around the material as the machine sews as it moves the neede and the bobbin catch tiomes gets off. use the stomp foot with the machine to help guide the cloth or abric. when you have to change directions. stop sewign and turn that fabric. this should also help prevent the bunching. please feel free to contact me at rdrteck@gmail.com for any further assistance.

Material is puckering.i was hemming pants ,that went good;so i tried working with a very light material.threads are nor releasing, i guess, as the material is pulling together as i sew, its all puckered.


you should always use needles that are the right size and sharpness for different fabrics. any fabric store can help you with this. according to your machine the smaller the # on the needle the finer teh fabric it will sew. also using the right weight of thread is important...light weight thread for light weight fabric and heavier for thicker fabrics
