Question about White Sewing 1740 Mechanical Sewing Machine
The bobbin is tangleing no matter if I straight stitch r try to zig zag
Take the thread out of the top and bottom and turn the handwheel by hand to see if the machine will rotate smoothly.
Rethread, making sure that the thread is in the bobbin tension slot and that the upper thread is in the tension and the take up lever.
Sorry for the delay in response. I just found the sight this evening.

If thread is bunching up under or at the bobbin (White 1740) and it clanks, check if the needle thread has come out of the upper arm. It can easily slip out of the slot. I have wound a narrow band of tape on the slot to prevent the thread from escaping. Leave enough opening to put the thread through when threading the machine.

When you wind your bobbin make sure you use even tension. Do not wind it to tight or to loose. Do not overwind it. Make sure that you are thread the bobbin correctly. Also do not sew at top speed. Use a slow to moderately slow speed.
