Euro-Pro Shark Intelli-Sew 9110

I took out the bobbin case and I put it back in the way described in the manual and now the thread gets caught as it goes around the bobbin case and jams or pops the bobbin case right out. I can't see anything that would be in the way for the thread to get caught on. Could it be a timing issue or something else? Please help!!!

    I have the same problem. When I do get the bobbin in and working my stitches are not sown together. The top stitch is fine for a while. Then the bobbin starts goofing up again. I've tried contacting EURO-PRO, but haven't gotten an answer. I spent $80 to get the timing looked at and fixed just to get the machine back and it is messing up again after one project completion. The machine is a year old and I may have sewn four things.

    if that was the case then my bobbin case would have holes punched in it but it doesn't. Would there be anything else?

    I have the same problem - I took the bobbin case apart cleaned it and it still does the same thing - now it has needle holes in the bobbin case where the needle would just stop and stagger.  I used this machine one time prior to using it now for some light sewing and it worked fine.  I just started making a rag quilt and this is what happens.  I am totally frustrated and Euro-Pro - no longer makes the product and I can get no help from them - what is the deal.  Has anyone had any luck.  I paid a bit over $300 for the machine.  Any suggestions would be helpful.  thanks!

    I am having the same issue, the thread gets caught on the second time around the bobbin case and it gets all messed up. I tried changing the tenshion, and that didn't help at all, I also cleaned out the whole underside of if and that didn't help either. What else could it be?

You need a new bobbin case, only problem is finding the right one. I am currently wasting hours trying to find one for our 9110 intelli sew which has needle holes punched through it from where it jumps right out. I think lots of manufacturers know fine which parts fit the Euro-Pro but would like all of us to scrap them and go out and buy theirs!

SearPartsDirect.com has parts for the Euro Pro but you have to look extensively at the diagram and get the number that matches to the part of the item you are looking for. It may help, I've called the Euro Pro company and asked for the parts and they had no clue what parts I was talking about. They stated that would have someone call me back but that was over 6 months ago.

There is no solution for that problem. My machine was doing the same thing, I returned it for "repair". Got it back 2 wks later and had the same problem. Just the other day, the machine did that, and then something "popped" and now the upper thread won't catch the bobbin thread. I called Customer Service and was told that if I want my machine repaired, I have to send them a check with the machine for $81! Your best bet...get rid of the Intelli-Sew and buy something that doesn't break every month or so!

Need a blow up diagram of the timing parts for Shark Intelli-Sew Euro-Pro Model 9110.


I had a timing problem, I believe, and fixed it. But its not yet perfect.....What happened was the top thread was not being caught by the bobbin holder. So when I "sewed", there were no stitches. When I watched the bobbin through the window, the bobbin didnt turn, and thread didnt whiz around the bobbin holder as it should with each stitch. I even made a video to see if there was a timing problem...the needle went down well before the bobbin holder "thread catcher hook" arrived to catch the loop. So I took off the plate underneath the bobbin holder, and adjusted the timing. When you do that you will see a cogwheel that rotates as the bobbin holder rotates. Three alan wrench screws hold it tight to the axle that rotates with the handwheel/footplate. I loosened the alan wrench screws, and then did the following. Hold the needle holder so it doesnt move, and at the same time turn the hand wheel a little. This adjusts the timing of the needle relative to the bobbin turning. then plug the machine in, and see if the bobbin wheel is now catching the thread. Keep adjusting until it does. Then tighten things back up, and VOILA! Im not sure this is the best way to adjust the timing, but it works. My machine went from no stitches at all, to sewing nicely. Its not yet perfect, as it jams every now and then. But that may be because the timing is still a little off, or because the thread is bad, or the tension of the thread is not quite right......working on that still.......

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

Thread getting caught underneath


you need to replace your shukle that holds the tread bobbing below.it is either slack or broken . if it is slack then you tighten the little screw that holds a cover that gives the thread tension .if its broken then replace it.once the thread is slack below it will cause your thread to bundle up.
