Hi. Sounds like you will first of all need to un-jam the bobbin. Is there a bobbin case involved? Perhaps it is the hook that is not moving? Start by unplugging your machine, then cut away any thread that is tangled or making a "birds nest" in the bobbin area. Use embroidery scissors or a razor blade, removing the cut off pieces as you do with a tweezer. As the tangle is removed, the bobbin / bobbin case should start to free-up. Once you can pull the bobbin out, clean out all of the remaining thread and strip the bobbin. When putting a fresh bobbin in, make sure the tail exits the bobbin case / hook through the slot and under the tension.

Feed dogs are not advancing material


check the position of the forward / reverse lever or knob
this indicates that the selection is in the middle

Mu Singer Futura II model 920 hand wheel seized up-it will not turn. any ideas?


Turning towards you? that is correct. It could be something else that is wrong, like needle hitting the plate, thread jammed etc...and you think it is the handwheel when the handwheel is just not turning reflecting something else. What I always do is take everything out and off...bobbin, bobbin case, feed dog plate, etc...and even remove the needle. Take your brush and get every last bit of lint out of the areas it might be. Something is hung up. When you put your needle back in, make sure it is up all the way, and use a new one. Maybe this will help, but if not, call Singer or take it somewhere as it might be a simple fix.

My machine flashes C4 when i want to sew


Clean the bobbin case area thoroughly, and probably the feed dogs, too. Start all seams by holding the top and bobbin thread ends together behind the presser foot for the first few stitches. If you have lost your manual, pick up a new one, free, at http://www.singerco.com

Wife has Kenmore 385.12314. Regular use. Normally cleaned and oiled. Needle goes down, but bobbin thread doesn't catch. Needle at bottom of stroke and "half moon" is on top, needle...


Make sure the needle is in the machine correctly- all theway up into the needle bar, make sure that it is threaded correctly, etc. Ifthis all checks out ok, take the bobbin case out of the machine. There are twoears on either side of the bobbin case- turn the left one to the left and theright one to the right. Remove the silver ring, and inspect the piece of metalthat the ring came off of (looks like a circle with the top cut off). You haveto locate the hook which is the piece that looks like a half moon inside thebig round metal piece. Locate the tip of it, turn the hand wheel toward youuntil the needle is in the lowest position, at this point the tip of the hookshould be flush with top of the left side of the cut off circle. If this is notso, your machine needs to be re-timed. If that is the case, I would need to seea picture of the bottom of the machine so that I am able to determine whatneeds adjusting. Make sure you're turning the hand wheel in the proper direction-- the proper direction isthe one that will feed fabric forward under the presser foot.

Make sure the needle is facing in the correct direction -- stitches don't form,or skip badly when the needle is turned around.

Put the bobbin in the bobbin case (right way around) leaving a 2-3" tail.

Thread the top of the machine correctly, leaving a 3-4" tail afterthreading the needle.

Hang on to the end of the upper thread, and use the hand wheel to drop theneedle... continue to turn the hand wheel to raise the needle. Pull on the endof the needle thread and a loop of bobbin thread should come up.

Hold BOTH threads behind the presser foot when starting a seam to preventthread jams.
Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

The bobbin thread bunches up underneath the garment on Elna 2004 sp


Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.

Thread and bobbin both threaded properly, but bobbin thread keeps knotting. sewing at top looks great but bobbin side is just knots!! I have a Euro-pro sewing machine.

I just got a new machine (new to me anyway) new home hf106 model. i need to thread the bobbin on the new thead i am using and am not sure where to put the empty bobbin and how to thread it. help!


Janome New Home?

Unfortunately, Janome doesn't put the manuals for older machines on their website. Your best bet is to contact your local Janome sewing machine dealer and ask for a "copy" of the manual from them. A photo copy should be sufficient for your purposes. Otherwise I understand you'll have to buy a manual and wait to have it shipped.

But carefully look at your New Home. On the top toward the right there should be a fitting that looks like the bottom half of a spool. and next to it is a thing that almost looks like a mushroom.

Put the spool of thread on the spool holder, run the tread to and around the tension discs on top then thread the end through the hole in your empty bobbin. Place the bobbin on the thing that looks like a half a spool and push the whole thing to the right toward the "mushroom."

Press start, or hit the foot feed. Wind slowly for best results.

When full, stop and move the bobbin winder back to the Left (sewing mode)

Now... hold your bobbin between your right thumb and fore finger... pull the thread a few inches... your thread should be coming off the LEFT side of the spool, if not flip it over and try again. Open the bobbin area, drop it in with the thread coming off the left to the bobbin.

hold bobbin still with right index finger and with left hand slip the tread between the bobbin race's tension spring then if your model has a channel for the tread... follow it... otherwise pull straight back, replace the bobbin cover on the machine.....

Thread top thread then use the hand wheel to take up the bobbin thread.

(Of course this all assumes your New Home is similar to my janome or brother.) Have fun!

Be sure to get some good needles.... ;)
