    Hi I just sent this below thinking that it was the area for my questions, but I was wrong so I'm hoping I can get help this way!!!

    Hi FixYa,

    I'm fifi1076, and I'm having quiet a good bit of trouble with my sewing machine.

    I'm new at this site so I don't know if I'm doing this correctly or not so please
    forgive me if I do something I'm not suppose to do!!!!

    I copied this question from off of this site for I wanted to make certain that
    whoever answers my question will understand that all of the question
    doesn't pertain to my problem.

    "when we have it threaded the top thread keeps getting jammed up in the
    bottom bobbin. if i redo the bobbin as shown in manual then the bottom
    thread will not loop so it will stitch"

    This is the only part that pertains to my problem...... when I have it threaded the top thread keeps getting jammed up in the
    bottom bobbin......and I can't get it to sew at all....it won't do nothing.....the motor will just sit there and grind.

    If whoever can help me with this and can give me a solution I will be forever gratefull

    Thanks,

    Kay Nowicki

I have a euro- pro model 385x. Every time I try to sew, the needle jams and the bobbin is surrounded by thread. I have tried loosening the bobbin as well as tightening it but to no avail. I get a big...


The problem is likely the threading. Double check the threading, look twice or three times at the diagram. Even me, a tech sometimes threads a machine or serger wrong.

I can't get the bottom thread to come up with the needle on my euro-pro shark intelli-sew


try this
make sure there is a 3-5 inch tail on bobbin thread
make sure there is a 3-5 inch tail on top thread, then hold the top thread tail with your fingers (away from the needle) & with your other hand turn the hand wheel manually on the right side of the sewing machine,, slowly letting down the needle down into the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick up this way

I keep having the same problem. I have the 7133 sewing machine and the top thread keeps getting stuck on the bottom. It's not the bobbin thread that does it but the top thread which gets caught on the hook...


Sounds like insufficient tension on the top thread. THIS may be due to variation in the thread itself or incorrect adjustment.

ALSO I recently found out that some bobbins have a metal core that can catch the thread as it goes over. The person recommended using the plastic bobbins that have smooth angled sides.

How to oil euro-pro 373?


Have you tried flipping the bobbin in it's case, so that the thread comes off the top of the bobbin instead of the bottom. Some machines are sensitive to one direction of the bobbin thread.

Euro pro 385w problems


if your machine is like mine the bobbin is not filling right. My bobbin thread is very loose when it should be tight. I am also looking for bobbin solutions. If I wind the thread around the thread tension guide 2 or three times it keeps the thread tight going to the bobbin winder. I hope this helps

Won't catch bobbin thread


In order to see whether or not my euro-pro 9110 had a timing issue, the service rep had me change out the needle (making sure I was using anything but a Singer brand needle--they do not work in these machines). I re-threaded the needle, took out the bobbin casing and the plastic ring encasing the bobbin, then lowered the needle to see if the hook on the metal ring holding the bobbin actually catches the thread on its own. If it doesn't catch, it's a timing issue and needs repair. They can walk you through this process of troubleshooting and set up repair if need.

Bobbin won't thread


Sounds like the bottom tension is to slack.
Look at the side of your bobbin case, when you thread the bobbin thread part of the route it runs is under a flat leaf spring. There is usually 2 very small scews on this leaf spring one screw holds the spring onto the casing and will be tight. The other is the tension adjuster screw, turn this screw clockwise half a turn at a time. After each half turn pull the bobbin thread until slight resistance is felt. Then try sewing if bunching/tangles still occur more tension is required, this is trial and error until the tension is corrert.
If you want a new manual try this website if your machine is not listed email them and they will try to help.
