Problem with feed dogs and thread catching
Hope this helps.
When the feed dogs are lowered they will not go up with just the switch. Try this, move the feed dog switch to the up position, then turn the handwheel 1 complete rotation. Voila they should be up. Let me know if it is solved. Chris

Thread on bobbin does not attach to needle when needle is turned down.
Depends what was causing the noise. It could merely have been the build-up of lint and thread. However, something else could be the cause.
First: Install a brand new needle. A bent, damaged, old needle will frequently cause noise because it is striking something it should not. A dull needle will also make a thunking sound as it tries to penetrate the fabric. The needle should be changed about every 8 hours of sewing...a very inexpensive fix!
Also, be sure to following the oiling instructions (if any) in your manual. Use only fresh good quality sewing machine oil and apply only 1-2 drops in each spot as instructed.
If the top thread still fails to pick up the bobbin thread, it is likely the machine has been knocked out of time. Take it for service.

How to controle loose stich
Check he tension on thread and on the bobbin. If you can see THE KNOT ON THE FACE OF MATERIAL then try loosening thread tension on top or tighten bobbin tension so stitch meets in the middle. May take a couple of tries to get it straight.
