Question about Yamata FY101-1A

1 Answer

It the same problem, needle does not move up and down

I followed the instruction like this to operate the machine. - Press the foot paddle gently and turn the wheel towards you whitout turning the switch on so as to release the brake of the machine of the first start. I have tried like this several times, eventhough we took a risk by turning the power on but the needle still does not move. We could hear the noise andthe smell from the motor ,then we had to stop to do so. Please give me advice and thank you for your help.

The motor is defective. If it's used or older, cleaning the motor with compressed air or vacuum might work if its very dusty.

How to thread the bobbin on a singer electronic 4562?


Do you need to wind the bobbin? If you just need put in the bobbin, make sure that the needle is in the highest position and that the presser foot is up. Slide open the cover by moving it towards you. Pull about 4" of thread from the bobbin and hold the bobbin such that the thread is coming off in a counter-clockwise direction. Put the bobbin into the bobbin case and secure the thread in the notch near the center bottom of the bobbin case. Next guide the thread into the notch to the left (near 7 on an analog clock). Hold onto the thread and slide the cover closed. To bring up the thread, make sure that the needle is threaded as well. Turn the hand wheel slowly towards you while you hold the needle thread with your left hand. Turn the wheel until the needle comes back out of the needle plate. Pull gently on the needle thread. You should see a loop of thread around the needle thread. Gently untangle this loop until you get to the end of the bobbin thread. Pull the needle thread through the opening on the left side of the presser foot. Then pull both threads to the back of the machine.

Most Singer sewing machines are available here: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 4562 is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/435_5_8_10_16_22_dial.pdf . The details and images for winding the bobbin is on page 13. Inserting the bobbin and raising the bobbin thread is on pages 15-16.

I hope this helps.

Tip

Sewing machine balance wheel stops.


Hold the wheel with one hand, turn the stop motion screw towards you. Place both feet upon the treadle and turn the balance wheel towards you at the same time allowing the feet to move freely and lightly with the treadle. Continue this until everything moves freely and easily. Do this until the machine can re-start without the balance wheel turning in the wrong direction.
Then tighten the balance wheel. Then place cloth under the presser foot then lower presser foot with the lever.

How do I yo draw up a loop?


Thread the upper part of your machine, making sure when you thread that the presser foot is UP.

Insert your bobbin, making sure that the bobbin thread is "caught" and threaded properly; make sure there is a reasonable length of thread outside the case (maybe 2" to 3"). Put the bobbin cover in place and put the presser foot down. Hold on to a length of upper thread and pull the hand wheel TOWARDS you (ALWAYS towards you) while holding the thread, one complete turn, until the needle is at its highest point again, then gently pull on the upper thread. The bobbin thread should come up to the top of the needle plate, and you are ready to sew! You MAY have to give it TWO turns.

How to guide thread on kenmore 158.13201


Most machines are very, very similar, therefore, no matter what brand you own, there's basically the same steps to follow: 1.

Guide thread under first tension disc. 4. Hold thread taut, guiding thread into next tension disc. When you get to the take-up leaver (silver lever on right side of machine that has a hole at the top--hold thread taut guiding it from right to left through hole, bring thread down left side of it, and put thread into tension bracket, hold thread taut! Put thread in back of needle into another small bracket and pull thread towards you. Time to thread needle: put thread front to back into eye of needle. Put thread under presser foot and pull under the center of it a good 6".Lower presser foot on scrap of fabric to test. Turn hand wheel toward you to lower needle into fabric scrap. Use foot (or knee depending on machine) to start machine. Do not pull or push fabric but gently guide it. Jimmy Place fabric scrap under needle. Low

How do I back stitch and fix a goof?


if you aren't pleased with what you have sewn, make sure hand wheel is turn toward you. Raise presser foot. Remove fabric, and use seam ripper to remove stitches by carefully cutting into one stitch, turning fabric to underside of garment and gently pulling bobbin thread until stitches easily pull out. Re-sew what you were dissatisfied with. Jimmy

I only want to know if the wheel must be loosened to wind the bobbin and if so with direction, to the front or backwards and press and turn or pull and turn.thanks


Which make and model sewing machine do you have?

None of my sewing machines need the wheel to be loosened for bobbin winding. The Singer Touch & Sew bobbins are filled in place. Use the handwheel to get the needle into the highest position (just turn the wheel). Wrap the top thread around the screw that holds the presser foot; open the slide plate part way and press the bobbin wind button. Hold the top thread and then begin winding by stepping on the foot pedal.. The thread should break after a few winds.

The Kenmore and the Husqvarna Vikings both get wound at the top. Place bobbin on winding pin. With the needle up and metal presser foot in place thread the top thread up to the bobbin (through the guides) and up through the hole in the bobbin. Slide the bobbin winding switch over towards the bobbin. Hold the thread tightly and begin winding (step on the foot control). After a few winds are on the bobbin, cut the thread that you were holding flush with the top of the bobbin. Continue winding the bobbin. (The newest Viking in the group has a computer screen; on that one, do not press OK until done winding the bobbin.)

However, if the handwheel is not turning and the needle is down, first find out why it isn't turning properly. This could indicate a tangle of thread somewhere in the system. (The older Husqvarna sewing machine in my home has a non-functional handwheel. The machine will still sew but you have to use the needle up/down switch that forces the needle to stop in the up position before you run out of bobbin.)

Please add a comment with the specifics of your sewing machine and I'll be glad to add additional information.

I hope this helps.

How to set up


  • Remove your Janome sewing machine from the box, placing the main machine on a hard surface appropriate for sewing and the accessories and smaller items to the side. Unwrap all of the wrapped items. Remove the tape used to protect the machine during shipment. Set aside the power cord and foot pedal.

  • 2

    Attach the power cord to the machine. The power cord plug-in area is located on the lower right side of all Janome sewing machines and has a series of metal prongs and a power switch. Fit the female end of the power cord onto the metal prongs and push it gently until it no longer moves.

  • 3

    Attach the foot pedal to the machine. The foot pedal plug-in is also located on the lower right side of all Janome machines, right next to the power cord plug-in. Press the foot pedal plug-in into place gently until it no longer moves.

  • 4

    Turn the power switch on. The power switch is located in the same area as the foot pedal and power cord plug-ins and is a rectangular black switch. Press this button. The sewing machine light will turn on.

  • 5

    Place a spool of thread on the spool pin, located on the upper right top side of the sewing machine. Place the thread so that the thread unwinds in a counterclockwise motion, with the thread coming off the back of the spool.

  • 6

    Insert a needle into your machine. Consult your owner's manual for the appropriate size and type of needle. Turn the needle clamp screw, located above the needle area, toward you to loosen it. Turn the needle so that the flat part of the upper shaft area faces the rear and slide the shaft of the needle up and into the needle area. Turn the needle clamp screw away from you to tighten the needle and lock it into place.

  • 7

    Wind the bobbin and insert the bobbin into the bobbin case. This procedure may vary depending on the model of your Janome machine, so consult your owner's manual for specific instructions.

  • 8

    Thread your machine according to the directions in your owner's manual. Like the bobbin, this procedure can vary widely depending on the model of your Janome machine.

  • 9

    Set your tension, located on the front of the machine, to halfway between three and four. The tension may be a dial or it may be computerized and located on the LCD screen, depending on your model. Consult your owner's manual to find out how to set the tension.

  • 10

    Place a piece of scrap fabric in the machine and sew a test seam before you start to work on a project to make sure all of your settings are correct.

I have a singer cxl electronic sewing machine and i have a problem with the needle either not moving or stopping when stitching the larger motifs or the zigzag stitch, somtimes the needle jut moves too...


The needle either not moving or stopping is a sign that the machine is jamming. Here's the answer for the question "My machine is jammed" from the FAQs on Singer's web site at http://www.singerco.com/support/faqs.html

A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in the hook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. *Always turn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you (clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam your machine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position before you start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam your machine in the bobbin case.

Your description of the needle hitting the plate or foot is an indication that the machine's timing has become unaligned which can be caused as indicated above by turning the hand wheel away from you - the correct way is to *Always turn the hand wheel towards you.

Hand wheel loose


In the middle of the stop motion screw wheel there is a screw, undo the screw and unscrew the stop motion wheel all the way off, you will now see a three pronged washer, take it off and put it in a different position, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight, tighten the small screw all the way, now loosen the stop motion wheel and press on the foot control gently, the balance wheel should move with moving the machine, if the machine turns then start over again, you can put the three pronged washer upside down if you wish.
