White thread keeps pulling through

I have lost the mannual unfortunatly as the machine was second hand when i got it. It has only been recently that the white thread has been coming through. The Machine sews fine when not using a memory card. Please help me! Thanks tpjones

Model 4075 white sewing machine problem with thread from bobbin

1. Replace thread with good thread. (Check by holding to light to see if there is fuzz).
2. Adjust the bobbin tension. The tension on top is set to three and the bobbin tension should be equal to this amount.
3. Replace needle.
4. Check the top tension with tension foot down to see if the thread can move or does it get stuck? If it gets stuck the tension control may need adjusted or cleaned.
5. Pull the bobbin thread above the throat plate and pull on the thread. It must have some tension but not get stuck.
TENSION TENSION TENSION IS THE PROBLEM!

Bobbin thread shows on embroidery pattern

The bobbin thread is being pulled too hard by the top thread. The idea is to get an even pull similar to a tug of war. When it is even the thread will form a knot in the middle of the fabric.
To fix this so the top thread isn't pulling too hard lower the tension of the top thread. This should fix it.

Why does my thread keep breaking on my machine while i am sewing

the top tension could be to tight
the needle could be damaged
try rethreading the machine just in case the thread is caught somewhere
clean under the needle plate & bobbin area for lint or loose threads
always make sure the top & bobbin thread tails are at least 3 to 6 inches long & pulled behind the needle to the back of the machine

I bought my daughter a White sew E-Z so she can have fun on her first sewing machine. However there is no manual and no instructions on how to thread the bobin. the bobin just sits on its flat side to go...

Check the model number of the machine. White sewing machine manuals are available from Singer at http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . Enter the model number and click Search.

The White Sew E-Z model W338 manual is available here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/705_white-338-x.pdf .

Unlike some machines this one doesn't really need the bobbin threaded. Place the bobbin in the bobbin holder and leave about 5" of thread extended out from the bobbin holder. With the bobbin compartment still open, lower the presser foot and turn the handwheel to move the threaded needle through the stitch cycle. (I find holding the threads helps; normally, you'll feel them pulling under your fingers.) When the needle has returned to the top of the path, lift the presser foot. Then pull both threads around to the front (the bobbin thread should wrap around the top thread). Then move the threads to the back of the presser foot.

If the needle isn't catching the bobbin thread, first try a new needle (bent or dull needles don't always function properly). Next check the bobbin holder for nicks or other damage. There is a small hook on the bobbin holder that should be where the top and bottom threads intertwine. Under rare circumstances, you will find that the bobbin tension of the bobbin holder is misadjusted. This can interfere with the bobbin thread twisting properly. There is a little set screw that allows you can tighten or loosen the bobbin tension as needed. Adjusting the screw is to be avoided when possible and done in small increments (1/8 turn) if needed. It's easy to strip the threads for the set screw and end up needing to replace the bobbin holder.

I hope this helps.

How do i thread my needle with the singer handy stitch?

  1. Loosen needle screw & insert needle with shank's flat side facing front of machine. Push needle in all the way, then tighten screw to hold needle in place.
  2. Install a fully wound bobbin by loosening bobbin nut & placing bobbin on top. Re-attach bobbin nut & tighten. If standard thread spool will be used, then attach spool pin to bobbin shaft & place thread spool onto shaft. Attach white spool cap on end of thread spool, then tighten. Bobbin/spool should unwind facing forward toward needle.
  3. Bring end of thread through thread guides & over tension control. Pass end of thread through needle eye, from back to front, & pull it out about two inches.
  4. A spring pushes pressor foot onto fabric that is being sewn, so lift pressor foot & place fabric underneath.
  5. Turn large handwheel on side of machine (handwheel can be turned in either direction) to raise needle arm to its highest position.
  6. Holding the Handy Stitch in place with your right hand, press on power switch & begin sewing. Guide fabric (being sewn) with your left hand.
  7. To end this sewing session, turn off power. Turn handwheel to raise needle to its highest position. Carefully pull out about three inches of thread through needle & snip, then lift pressor foot to remove fabric. Turn fabric over & loop needle threader through last stitch. Place end of thread from underside through eye of needle threader, & pull to loop through. Pull to tighten and snip end of thread.

The thread keeps breaking from the needle the bobbin thread is loose

Check to make sure the there is no damage to the needle plate. A gouged plate will rub the thread when it passes and break it. Make sure the tension number is between 3-5. To check your bobbin thread, once you put the bobbin in and have it threaded properly, pull on the thread, if it has a little resistance, it is probably good, if it pulls through too easily, adjust the screw, just a very minor bit until you feel some resistance. Then try again. Sometimes it takes a little back and forth to get it right, better to go in small amounts than large leaps.

I need to find out how to load thread into a white heavy duty sewing machine model number 1866

all machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

Need help making a bobbin...

Ahah! I was having a similar problem, but figured it out. What you do is you first put the spool of thread you want on the bobbin in its normal place, just as if you were sewing. Then you take the end of the thread and wrap it around the metal button-looking thing on the top of the metal string catcher on top of the machine. Wrap it around once in a figure eight sort of pattern (or kinda like a Jesus-fish symbol). Then you take the end and put it through one of the holes on the bobbin. Make sure there's enough so that it won't slide out, because it will wind at sewing speed. Now, you take the bobbin and put it on the metal post on the right-hand side of the machine, the one in front next to the white plastic round with a screw in the middle. It should fit on tightly.

Now, here's the part that took me forever: on most machines I've encountered, there's a switch somewhere that tells the machine to wind the bobbin. On the White Fashionaire 2380 that switch is the bobbin-holder itself (the metal post it is on right now!). Push the post, bobbin and all, towards the white plastic thing (sorry, but it's late and proper teminology eludes me). It should click over, and your thread should be going from the spool, around the metal button (in a figure eight fashion) and should be threaded through one of the holes in the bobbin. Now you hold the end of the thread and press the pedal, and after a short while the thread will be pulled out of your hand (or possibly not, if it's long enough). Keep going until you have enough thread on the bobbin, and cut it loose! You're done!
