Did you change to the narrow stitch finger? The narrow one is in the door of the machine where the other tools are -- a little square box on the left of where the needle box slides in. Sometimes that is needed instead of the normal one.

Caution: If you have never before changed it out, open the left door all the way and look and see where the stitch finger is coming out of before you remove it all the way. Refer to your manual.

SOURCE: I need a manual for a White 2200 multi- tasker sewing machine.

You need to take this to a repair person.
I do have a manual but you can go to www.whitesewing.com and get one. Also the tension is a big problem if you don't use the exact bobbin. I was told that most bobbins will work in this machine but it turns out that only the one that comes with the machine really works. I would look for the parts to your machine. Sometimes they get lost in your sewing kit.

It is very very important to follow the manual when threading the machine. One missed or out of place thread will throw the entire machine off. I know I had the same problem.

SOURCE: Thread bunches up on underside

Hello

Looping underneath the fabric usually occurs when there is not enough tension in the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. Sometimes thread buching can be caused by something as simple as the tension dial being inadvertently turned.To begin balancing the thread tension, reset the dial to a medium number, on most machines this is in the 3, 4, 5 numbers range. Also, check to see if there are any tiny knots in the thread that have become caught in the thread path and stopped the thread from advancing.

sewing machines that have not been used in a long time usually need the tension discs cleaned. This can be done with a cloth dampened with cleaning fluid or rubbing alcohol. Pull a single layer of the cleaning cloth back and fourth between the individual tension discs, until they are very clean and smooth.

If you have a sewing machine with built-in tension control, that does not have tension discs, and are having trouble with thread looping, then you need to consult the manual to adjust the built-in settings and stitch balance. Stitch balance, meaning the upper and lower threads are set to make a well formed stitch that is evenly balanced on the top and the bottom (on the front and back of the fabric). Finely adjusted tension settings will produce even stitches where the upper and lower threads lock in the center of the fabric to form a stitch. One advantage of the built-in tension designs is that the tension mechanism is enclosed within the housing of the machine which protects it from dust.

Dust and lint that have accumulated is a common cause of sewing machine problems, and yet it can be so easily remedied. Sewing machine repair resources sometimes suggest using aerosol cans of compressed air to help remove dust and debris that may be clogging areas of the machine. The other School of Thought on cans of air spray, is that this method is really better suited for other types of machinery, and not the smaller finer gears and mechanisms that are inside a sewing machine. The blasts of air from compressed cans can be difficult to control on a small scale. There is the risk that if dust is sprayed by air to remove it from one area, it can easily be blown into other parts of the machine. It is better to remove the dust, rather than spray it all around.

One of the finest and simplest tools for removing clumps of dust from sewing machines are clean small bristle paintbrushes, measuring about 1 inch across, or even a clean small make-up brush. An inexpensive tool, it is good to have one, preferably a brush that is new and has never been used, for cleaning a sewing machine and wiping away balls of lint.

Small brushes can be very useful and good for cleaning around the tension dials and wiping away from the machine the large amounts of fabric lint that accumulate when working with sewing machines.

When changing a spool of thread, remember to cut the thread strand close to the spool and pull it out in a forward direction through the threading channels. Do not pull it backwards through the tension discs, because overtime, this can damage the fine alignment of the tension disc settings. We have all done this; trying to save 8 or 10 inches of thread by pulling it backwards through the threading channels and tension discs. But it is not good for the machine, and it is better to cut the thread close to the spool and pull the remaining strand outward in a forward direction (not backward).

I am using a Juki DDL 8700 thread to tight & not pulling through needle & cactching bottom thread


needle too small or machine out of time. to time machine theres a mark on needle bar. lower needle bar till mark shows and raise bar till even with bar guide. take off feeder plate so u can see needle in relation to hook. when mark on needel bar is even with bar guide the hook should be 1/16 fron passing the needle. if not loosen 3 screws and trial and error it to get it right. use a small screwdriver and tighten just on screw when u hab aglined the hook to needle. do a full rotation and watch where needle is and needle bar mark. needel should be as clost to hook without touching.

Bar that hold the sewing foot is loose


If the comment already posted did not answer your question, here is another thing to check. If the screw that attaches the foot and ankle to the presser foot bar is tight, and the foot can still be moved, it is likely that the presser foot bar has become loose within the lifting mechanism. You could save yourself some trouble by taking your machine to a sewing machine repair shop, but if you would rather avoid that expense, do the following. Remove the needle bar and take up mechanism cover on the left side of the machine. This is held on by a single phillips head screw on the back side of the machine, which, with the back of the machine facing you, should be on the top right side of the machine. Once this cover is removed you will be able to see two vertical metal shafts, one is attached to your needle clamp and needle, and should be in the front. The other is the presser foot bar, and will be behind the needle bar. There should be a small allen screw about halfway up that shaft that tightens onto the bar. With the presser foot properly positioned on the needle plate, tighten this allen screw. Don't tighten the screw too tightly, as this can damage the presser bar, just make sure it's nice and snug. Make sure the presser foot raises and lowers properly, and re-attach the needle bar cover.
Hope this helps.

My brother ls-2125i sewing machine is making loops and loose threads and still does after being cleaned, oiled, and threaded again. What could be the problem, and how can it be solved?


change the needle
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw.

adjust the top thread tension one number or letter at a time until
the stitch looks normal

try adjusting the top thread tension-to see if the tension is too tight
rethread the machine--top & bobbin just in case the thread is caught some where
check to make sure there aren't any burrs on the needle plate

Remove sewing maqchine case


Plate on bottom: Remove screws. Keep screws in safe place and oil moving parts with good quality sewing machine oil. Zoom with spout for sewing machines & servers is what I use purchased online...lubricate gears with Singer lubricant (in tube). Tip machine back onto a towel to remove screws. Just one drop oil on moving parts & dot of lube gear only if not showing signs of grease already. Please remove bobbin and presser foot before cleaning/oiling. One drop oil then generously SMEAR oil on oscillating hook, open right front door & one drop top of needle bar. Clean out race shuttle for lint, fuzz balls, broken threads with soft sewing machine brush & clean your feed dogs gently with bristles too. Hope this helps. Do not clean machine near children or curious pets! I run my machine with pedal on table top so I don't accidentally step on it. Control with right hand to see moving parts. At your own risk, of course. Safe and effective but only if you are extremely careful. Replace all screws securely. Put in new needle all the way UP into needle bar groove, presser foot UP turning handwheel towards you, flat end of needle to back, Thread Front to Back of needle.. Keeping presser foot raised @ highest position ensures thread locates the tension slots properly. Jimmy

Remove bobbin, presser foot, needle. Tip machine back on towel gently. Unscrew plate--don't lose screws! Do not service in presence of children and curious pets. Put foot pedal next to you on tabletop. Use Zoom Sewing Machine oil. Any part MOVING that are NOT gears get one drop oil. Any DRY ONLY gears get dab of Singer sewing machine lubricant. Replace screws. Secure screws. Open left front compartment & one drop oil @ top of needle bar. Open race shuttle (where bobbin case fits in). One-half drop oil of on oscillating hook (bottom left - hand corner...smear that oil around! Insert NEW needle all way UP in needle bar groove, flat needle shank toward back. Turn handwheel towards you and raise. Raise presser foot so that threading locates all tension slots a's you pull thread TAUT from spool to each tension slot and left to right through silver, metal take-up lever, and down to tension bracket, pass needle, then pull 6" thread towards you and thread from FRONT to BACK of needle. Place bobbin into case and "thread" it. Set presser foot on DOWN position. Turn handwh towards you, dipping needle into needle plate. Make loop with bobbin thread, pull towards you. Place a good 7" underneath presser foot (both threads). Let machine RUN on 24" scrap to distrubute oil/lube. That's it! Jimmy

I can start working withmy baby lock, the needle brokes verytime i runthe machine , and i can not sew


If this machine has a needle position adjustment and it is on the center position -

and you are sewing a zig-zag stitch and using a presser foot with a narrow opening this could break the needle

and the needle plate is a single hole, this will break the needle.

and you are sewing a straight stitch with a new needle and it breaks, the machine needs to go in for servicing.
