Threading on the machine

A bought this machine from a friend and I never had a chance to work on it for about a year. When I did it kept messing up and acting like it was catching on something when the needle went down. Took the fabric out and there is a glob of mess of thread. I worked and worked threading the machine, but nothing worked. A lady from a quit place came down and said it was threaded wrong and it worked great for her when she tested on a small piece of matrial. I just got done working on something and ran out of the bobbin thread and had to redo it and now it's messed up. Like I said I don't have a manuel for this machine. Can you help me.

Be sure to install a brand new sharp needle before sewing. Check that the needle, thread, and fabric are compatible. An embroidery needle or top stitch needle may help.

When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot before threading to insure the thread seats in the tension disk.

I have a simple and I have better luck when I use a SA156 metal bobbin. Another thing, has she watched the cd that came with the machine? This machine is a little touchy as far as threading goes, I have been sewing 50+ years. Usually, it is in the top threading that causes the problem. If, she has a question, she should call Singer at 1-800-4singer and they will walk her through all of the threading and other troubleshooting strategies. Good luck. Hope this helps you.

Don't know how to thread the juki mo-735 serger


This video starts off a little ****, but expected if you have ever visited the Threadbanger site - http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1462325/how_to_use_a_serger_indie_pendent_designer_spotlight_thread_he/ Not your brand, but the same "serger basics". Lift the antenna to it's highest position. Set the tensions to zero. Have the presser foot up when threading. Raise the upper looper to it's highest position. Sergers are great little machines, but they can be nerve racking when it comes to threading. After years of threatening my old FunLock, I bought a Babylock Imagine with air-jet threading - what a relief!

I kept looking for a bobbin problem (because this is what the book that comes with the machine indicated as the cause. As it turned out, somehow the thread on the TOP slid off the wire thingy that goes up and down when sewing. I noticed it totally by accident. After re-threading the machine, it worked like a charm.

I received a cd with my machine showing step by step how to thread it. I put the machine beside my computer and threaded it step by step by watching the cd. One problem I had after threading it was not being able to sew a chain without the thread matting up and making a real "mess". The problem was I did not push the thread up against the machine until it clicked. That sets the tension. Try that and if you still have a problem email me and I will try to help.

Threading and thread breaks


The shudder bothers me!!
Would suggest take it back before you start messing with it or letting a sewing machine tech near it. Last thing you want to do is run the risk of voiding the warranty.
Best of luck

Pure problems


That series machine has had a LOT of issues with the "automatic" upper threading/needle threading mechanism. I believe that is where the issue is coming from. I would take it to a authorized Brother dealer and they should be able to diagnose. Many things can interfear with the top tension on that mech. and a good tech will be able to help.
