Question about Singer 1725

1 Answer

I have never used a sewing machine before!!

Can anyone tell me the basics and how do I thread this thing I have followed the numbers all the way down but I don't know what to do once I get my thread to the needle do I put the thread the the needle first? If so what do I do with it after that? Does it just hang there?

    what is bobbin? do i need both, thread and bobbin?

  • Sweetone2199 Apr 20, 2008

    I have the top part threaded already, but when i go to do the bobbin, it goes through, but it will not sew on to the fabric. It bunches up and just puts wholes in the fabric where the needle went through. What am i doing wrong?

Yep. Just hangs. Leave about 3 inches of thread.

I got treadle sewing machine, with no manufacturer name on it anywhere. It has a serial number, 2239420. Can anyone tell me how to thread it? I have pictures.

On older Singer machines, the serial number is all you will find. If you look it up in the database, it will tell you what model it is. The good thing is, the old Singer machines didn't change much so the threading sequence should be similar from model to model. It's probably going to be difficult, or impossible, to find a manual, but the machines are so basic that most older Singer manual would be helpful. Just be sure to oil the moving metal parts often with good quality sewing machine oil.

How do I get rid of bird nests that keep happening when I attemp to sew?

There are some very basic things to do.

Install a brand new needle.

Remove the thread from the machine.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and then rethread the upper thread. Confirm it is following the correct thread path. (Bird nests occur usually because the thread is not seated completely in the tension disk or the machine is threaded improperly.)

Verify the bobbin is installed in the bobbin case facing the proper direction and that the bobbin case is threaded properly.

Set the upper tension to the midway point (the factory standard), although this may need to be tweaked as machines change over time and use.

Pull the bobbin thread to the top and hold the thread tails. (This works for general sewing, not just quilting.)

Slowly begin to test sew.

If it continues to create bird nests, then your machine may have a timing issue. Take it for service.

You can download a manual from, just type your model number into the search field to locate it then download the pdf file to your PC. This is a basic Zig zag machine so carefully follow the manual instructions to wind a bobbin, thread up and stitch, just make sure you follow the directions to wind a bobbin, and then put it in the right way and click the thread into the tension spring.

I have received an old Husqvarna Viking from my grandmother which, she assures me is in working order, but she is unable to remember how to thread the machine and there are no instructions. The only...

This is going to be pretty veige, Im sorry but I have seen a lot of these go unanswered so hopefully this is at least helpful. All sewing machines have to do the same basic things, First the thread will go through a directional hole just getting it in the right spot, then it goes through the tension discs, then the take up spring, then the take up arm, then down through to the needle. I realize this this is veige, but I sure hope it helps.

Thread is going on cutting.

you do need to provide more details.  start here - get a fresh spool of high quality all purpose thread such as Coats and Clarks or Metrosene thread, fill a fresh bobbin, install a new size 11 needle.  Follow the threading instructions even if you've threaded the machine a million times, read the instructions again.  try sewing on some basic cotton fabric.  You'll be able to determine if it's the machine.  Breaking thread can be the thread (it does get too old and fragile), the needle, the incorrect needle for the fabric, the wrong thread for the fabric, and a host of other things.  So try that and tell us more if that doesn't work. 

Threading this machine.???

It really sounds like you have it threaded wrongly. You should find threading instructions in that manual.

Thread a kenmore 158 13410????

Not sure if I am too late, but it's pretty basic. I have the same machine...

You have the thread on the spool with the thread on the left side (unrolling off the spool counterclockwise) and put it around the round thing on the front middle (looks like a snap sort of) and through the eye almost right in front of it (the loop) and hold the thread lightly then wrap the thread around the tensioner (the thing with the dial) to the left (counterclockwise) until the springs "pops" it into place. Then run the thread through the little hook thing (by entering from the left) then up to the eye (hole) that is in the little arms that raises and lowers (you might need to spin the wheel to get the arm in the right position) then you run the thread back through the hook thing (entering from the left) around the little half circle thing (by entering from the left) and finally in the hole in the needle...

hope it made sense, I tried to use laymen terms...

good luck!
