First thing to try: Put in a brand-new needle. Damaged needles are probably the number one cause of a sewing machine issue.

Try a different type thread. Old and inexpensive brands of thread can cause problems.

Clean any dust, lint, and thread pieces from the bobbin area. Be sure to oil your machine as recommended in your owner's manual. Use ONLY good quality sewing machine oil (not 3-in-1, grandma's old oil tin, WD-40, or cooking oil), and apply only one to two drops each spot.

Remove all the thread from the machine. Loosen the upper thread tension as much as possible, then gently pull a piece of UN-waxed dental floss or pearl cotton between the tension disks to clean them and remove any dust, lint, or pieces of thread.

Be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread (this releases the tension disks so the thread will seat properly).

Re-thread from the beginning verifying that it is threaded properly (consult your manual).

If your thread is globbing up under the fabric, you are probably experiencing thread nesting or birds nesting. Here's a handy web site:

HANDY TIP: to help threading the needle's eye, instead of licking the end of the thread, lick your finger and then swipe it across the back side of the needle's eye. The moisture in the eye will draw the thread into place...

Elna ironing press manual


I don't have a manual but these are extremely simple to use once and there is a demo on youtube for business shirts How to use Elna Press for Ironing Shirt and other videos from same member show sheets and jeans. Technique is simple, place part of garment onto the board with the rest sitting on your knees (use press sitting down in front of it) to take the weight, lower press closed with your left hand, then bring the spring loaded right handle down to apply the pressure, this has a big spring behind it and applies pressure, wait 2-3 seconds then lift right handle to release the pressure and then using your left hand grip the whole press will want to open up again. That's it! Set the temperature setting on the press and iron from your lowest temperature items first, nylons, up to cottons, linens on the hottest setting last as it will take 5 minutes or so to come up to full temperature. If you have the vapojet spray attachement, then you fill this with tap water and slide it onto the handle, give it a spray with the press open before you close to press and it turns to steam. Cleaning the top hot plate can be done with a special cleaning stick product you can buy (or any similar iron cleaning stick will work too, but you need to apply it to a hot plate so be really careful as you do this, then wipe it off with some waste fabric. Great press to own and perfect for applying interfacing if you are a sewist, (just use a piece of waste fabric so side of the interfacing doesn't attach to the top plate or your bottom cover).

My boiler keeps making a ringing sound. Like a small bell on a bike. What could be causing this noise


Note sure if its the same thing but my boiler (halstead Best 50) made a ringing sound just like you describe. It was the flue fan blades just catching the metal surround of the flue vent on occasions. It only happened when the boiler had been running a while. A new fan was fitted and everything ok now.
