Question about Euro-Pro Shark 80 - 7133

1 Answer

Euro pro sewing machine fix

Hi Snakehead, - my wife has a model 7130Q with a persistent (as in almost always!) thread bunching problem - we read your fix for a different model but aren't sure what a "shukle" is in the solution you posted. Nothing looks broken and all screws seem tight. Any suggestions? Greetings from Canada!!

IF EVERYTHING LOOKS GOOD, ONE THING THAT WORKS FOR ME IS TO TAKE A HAIRDRYER AND MAKE SURE THAT THERE ARE NOT ANY THREADS/DUST BUNNIES HIDING AND NOT LETTING EVERYTHING RUN SMOOTHLY.

What is the problem when the thread keeps bunches up on the back of material


Could be many things. Old blunt needle, wrong tension, wrong needle and thread for the material. Have you got the same thread in bobbin and needle?Also is needle and bobbin threaded correctly?
best wishes

How to thread euro-pro 150 sewing machine


Hi
Try looking on here:
http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Threading_Diagrams.htm
Although your model number is not listed, they do have threading diagrams for other Euro-pro machines. Perhaps one is similar enough to your machine to allow you to thread it and get started.
I'm not sure what's happened to the Euro-pro site, it seems to have been taken over by Shark and no longer has a sewing machine manuals section as it did before.
Hope this helps!

Hi...i have been having trouble with my bobbin thread bunching up really bad underneath and causing the machine to seize up when i try to sew...it starts to do this just after a few stitches...i make sure...


Always remember that it is the opposite of what you think, it is your upper thread that is not threaded right, not your bobbin. Once you thread it right, you should be okay. You can buy a manual at sew4less.com for about $14.95

My thread keeps breaking. I got this machine


Hi. I'm really glad to hear that you want to learn to sew! You're right to try to find a manual for your machine first, because your sewing machine is the most important piece of equipment you have.

You didn't say what model your Euro-Pro machine is and that's pretty important in order to find the right manual. See if there's a name plate somewhere on the machine with the model and serial number information.

I did find a manual for a Euro-Pro model 1260 at Relics: http://pages.sewing-machine-manuals.com/173/InventoryPage/1424422/1.html. Check it out and see if the drawing looks like your machine and the description sounds like yours.

Sew4less (http://www.sew4less.com/index.php) has a lot more Euro-Pro manuals, but no drawings or pictures.

I also found Euro-Pro manuals at http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/europro/europro_sewing_machine_product_list.html.

But this may be your best bet: http://www.euro-pro.com/europro/faqhelp.aspx They have an example of where to find the model number and then you can enter the model number to find the manual.


Since you're new to sewing but want to learn, here are a couple of websites that you might be useful:

http://www.sewing.org/

http://clothing-design.suite101.com/article.cfm/a_selection_of_simple_sewing_books_for_beginners

http://www.asg.org/ (American Sewing Guild)

http://www.sewing.com/index.html

http://sewing.patternreview.com/ (they have online classes!)

Have fun surfing--one will lead to another, I guarantee!

You can visit me at my sewing blog (www.robbiesews.blogspot.com), explore the links I have there and all my posts, and ask me anything about sewing.

Happy Sewing!
