Question about Sewing Machines
I follow the manual, and the stitch pattern # and it still jams up. I have the threading done right and everything else right, just keep jamming up on me when I try to sew. It keeps showing c4 but I check and it's fine. Can you help?
I'm fifi1076, and I'm having quiet a good bit of trouble with my sewing machine.
I'm new at this site so I don't know if I'm doing this correctly or not so please
forgive me if I do something I'm not suppose to do!!!!
I copied this question from off of this site for I wanted to make certain that
whoever answers my question will understand that all of the question
doesn't pertain to my problem.
"when we have it threaded the top thread keeps getting jammed up in the bottom bobbin. if i redo the bobbin as shown in manual then the bottom thread will not loop so it will stitch"
This is the only part that pertains to my problem...... when I have it threaded the top thread keeps getting jammed up in the bottom bobbin......and I can't get it to sew at all....it won't do nothing.....the motor will just sit there and grind.
If whoever can help me with this and can give me a solution I will be forever gratefull

Check the easy stuff first:
Make sure the needle is inserted in the machine properly- a good rule of thumb is the flat side of the needle should go to the opposite side of the last thread guide. Also make sure the machine is threaded correctly.
the needle is in correctly with the flat side to the rear of the machine, make sure to thread the upper and lower portions of the machine correctly.
the needle is in the machine correctly- all the way up into the needle bar, make sure that it is threaded correctly, etc. If this all checks out ok, take the bobbin case out of the machine. There are two ears on either side of the bobbin case- turn the left one to the left and the right one to the right. Remove the silver ring, and inspect the piece of metal that the ring came off of (looks like a circle with the top cut off). You have to locate the hook which is the piece that looks like a half moon inside the big round metal piece. Locate the tip of it, turn the handwheel toward you until the needle is in the lowest position, at this point the tip of the hook should be flush with top of the left side of the cut off circle. If this is not so, your machine needs to be re-timed. If that is the case.

Sounds like the take-up lever is not threaded.
Remove the thread from the machine, turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is at its highest position, raise the presser foot and rethread the machine. Set the upper tension dial to 5 and retry.

Testimonial: "cheers machine running fine now only occaisional jam , but mostly smooth "
Here are a couple of things to try.
* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your
bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.
* Change your bobbin
There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you
* When you start to sew a seam, grasp the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back
and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting
caught in your machine.
I hope this helps.
