Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

This was my mother's machine and was a work horse for her. I am making a camouflage quilt for my army son and would like to use the necchi. Unfortunately juice is going to the machine--turning the wheel but the needle is not moving. Any ideas?

Make sure the presser foot is raised and the needle is in the highest position. Move the needle up by twisting the nob on the right side of the machine toward you.
And rotate the nob on the left side until the needle goes all the way down and up again. Always rotate toward you or you could damage the needle.------------ Other possibilities to be checked are :----
Bobbin winder shaft was left in winding position- Move bobbin winder shaft back fully to left.---
Hand wheel out of gear unit loose- check tightness of the hand wheel bobbin winder unit.---
Buttonhole lever was not lowered when machine was placed in buttonhole mode- Lower buttonhole lever.---
Motor belt slipping- reset or replace belt.
Thread lock, threads wrapped around bobbin case- find and remove threads from bobbin case area.---------
This should help.thanks.Helpmech.

Royal Series, Necchi, Model # 80331763 bobbin does not take up thread properly. No manual unsure if i am threading it correctly.


You can get Necchi instruction manual from Necchi website: http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Necchi_Sewing_Machines.htm". Makesure the needle is in the machine correctly- all the way up into the needlebar, make sure that it is threaded correctly, etc. If this all checks out ok,take the bobbin case out of the machine. There are two ears on either side ofthe bobbin case- turn the left one to the left and the right one to the right.Remove the silver ring, and inspect the piece of metal that the ring came off of(looks like a circle with the top cut off). You have to locate the hook whichis the piece that looks like a half moon inside the big round metal piece.Locate the tip of it, turn the hand wheel toward you until the needle is in thelowest position, at this point the tip of the hook should be flush with top ofthe left side of the cut off circle. Checkwhether underneath thread is looping on the fabric. If so then you've mis-threadedthe top, probably haven't raised the presser foot when threading so you can getthe upper thread into the tension. You need to thread the upper part with thepresser foot up. (You can put it down to thread the needle.)

Not picking up thread can be several issues, like bobbin is miswound, bobbincase isn't snapped in properly, you're using the wrong type bobbin, machine isout of time, needle is bent or burred, machine is dirty and in need of dustbunny eviction and a little oil but most of the time the issue is once againmisthreading: sewing machine needles have a front and a back and they have tobe placed in the needle holder correctly. In that case your manual is needed, take all the thread offthe machine (yes, spool off the spool pin, bobbin out of the bobbin case), pullthe needle plate and clean your machine thoroughly, using brush and vacuum (notcompressed air) and oiling per the instruction manual. Put it all backtogether, putting in a 80/12 needle, correctly oriented. Hang on to theneedle thread when you fetch up the bobbin thread.

Each and every seam you start is going to be done this way:
1) Pull the tail of the top and bobbin thread behind the presser foot
2) Put the work under the needle and use the hand wheel to lower the needleinto the work
3) Drop the presser foot
4) Holding the thread tails behind the foot, take a couple of stitches.
5) Drop the thread tails and sew normally. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Hi, I have a silly question. How on earth do I thread my Brother Xr-65 sewing machine?!! I have misplaced the users manual during my recent move. It seems to take thread a little differently than my...


The XR-65 and the XR-65T are the same except that the T indicates the sewing machine was sold with the Quilting Table and some accessories for quilting.

To thread the sewing machine, first lift the presser foot and use the handwheel to raise the needle to its highest position. The thread take up lever should be at its highest point. Place the spool of thread on the horizontal pin secured with the appropriate cap. Make sure that the thread comes off the spool from the bottom front, (Also check that the catch (for holding the thread when not in use) on the spool is at the back of the pin.) Then bring the thread to the thread guide at the back of the machine then down past the reverse lever and back up the the thread take up lever. Wrap the thread around the take up lever so that it slides into the slot and then goes through the hole in the take up lever from right to left. Bring the thread down again and place it behind the guide above the needle. Then thread the needle from front to back.

Brother has the manual available for download: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doch000061/xr52c65txl64526562ug01enesfr.pdf . See page 31 (43 of the PDF) for the pictures of the upper thread path.

I hope this helps.

Where can I order a quilter attachment, seam guide attachment, embroidery attachment, for my necchi heavy duty 3205FA sewing machine?


Hi malonicus121,

Welcome to fixya!

You can order the quilter and seam guide attachments at: http://www.allynint.com/access.htm

Here is their homepage with phone numbers: http://www.allynint.com/

Since they are Necchi importers, I would guess that they could order the embroidery unit for you. Couldn't find an embroidery attachment available for this machine except on ebay. You might want to watch ebay for this.

Also, here is the website for the "SewVac Doctor": http://sewvacdoctor.com/
Not only does he give lots of answers, he does repairs. He probably would know where you could get an embroidery attachment should you have trouble finding one.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

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.

Free owners manual for Necchi 575FA sewing machine


Find the Vintage Necchi page on Facebook. Lots of FREE NECCHI MANUALS there. I will have the 575FA manual posted there in less than a week. These other answers are posted by m0r0ns who are sending you to sites that CHARGE. I guess these stoopid jerks don't know what the words FREE MANUAL mean.

If you go to the Necchi-USA website, they will refer you to a website that sells manuals because they don't want to be bothered by the old machines. Keep that in mind if you consider buying a manual from a company that washes their hands of their products when they decide they can't make enough money from selling parts and keeping free manuals for them.

My Necchi supernova ultra mark 2 (50 year old) sewing machine's belt broke (13 inch length). I'm having trouble finding one on-line. Any idea where to get one?


I have the same machine and I see the belt has been replaced. It's a Singer belt. You might wanna try that.
