    Machine not sewing not picking up thread from spool

  • Anonymous Mar 23, 2014

    My thread spool pins are broken off, I have ordered new ones and need to know how to install them

  • Anonymous Mar 29, 2014

    I cannot understand the directions how to thread the upper spool through to the point of threading the needle. The directions are confusing from #5 on.

    The spool pins are just little nubs. How do the spools of thread go on these?

    How do you get spools of thread to stay on? The spool holders are just tiny, little nubs.

Cut a round curcle of fabric the size of the spool from a piece of felt. Put a hole in the middle and put it under the spool of thread. If this does not work you can purchase a small net that fits over the spool. It is designed to keep the thread from coming off the spool except for being pulled through naturally.
Hope this works.

My Bernini 440 stitches just fine and then all of a sudden the stitches become very small. What is happening


Check if something is stopping the thread spool from turning. Usually, when that happens, my thread is wrapped around the spool pin, stuck on the little thread notch on the spool, or wrapped around a thread guide. Try removing the top thread completely and rethreading from the start.

Bernina artista 180 bottom stitch bunching


bunching under the material is bird nesting is a result of loose needle thread tension thread the machine up to the point of threading the needle
pull on the thread and you should have a reasonable resistance to pulling the thread
adjust the tension until you get that then thread the needle
while you may be using the tension settings if there is a problem in the tension plates area , the tension will not get high enough regardless of the indicated setting
bobbin tension can be reasonably loose
correct tension is when both threads meet at the center of the materials being sewn

Two things I can suggest.

First, look at this search result and see if any of the manuals refer to the machine you have:
https://www.google.com/search?num=100&safe=off&q=sewing+machine+overlock+manual+filetype%3Apdf

Second, check with your local sewing circle or quilting group. You can usually find them at the local library or via Google.

My Husqvarna diamond top thread keeps breaking while doing loop embroidery. It sews a couple of stitches and then you can hear when the thread breaks. Ive tried changing the needle and bobbin, and cleaning...


Hello

Primary causes of upper thread breakage:


-- misthreading: pull all the thread off and thread again, using the manual, step by step. Read each step aloud before you do it. (sounds dumb, but helps.) (And make sure you thread the takeup lever!)

-- thread has wrapped itself around a thread guide or spool pin from one of the breaks. Take the spool off the machine before rethreading.

-- bad or damaged needle. Replace with the right size for the fabric, turned correctly (backwards needles skip stitches)

-- dirty machine, especially in the bobbin case area: review cleaning instructions and do it, using brush and vacuum only

-- bad/cheap thread: should not be slubby or break easy. Try another spool.

-- top thread tension too tight. 4 is normal for most fabrics, most stitches.

Tips;

1) do a light cleaning (brush and vacuum) every day you sit down to sew.

2) replace the needle if you hear it hit metal, if you've got a really bad thread jam, if you see it deflect as you sew (for instance, sewing over the side seam on jeans when hemming). Replace every 3-8 hours of actual stitching time anyhow.

3) buy good quality thread

4) when your machine isn't sewing right, stop; take all the thread off of/out of the machine (bobbin out of bobbin case, spool off spool pin) and give it a quick cleaning. Rethread from scratch, carefully. If that doesn't fix it, do it again, then replace needle and rethread one more time, manual in hand (yah, even if you've threaded it 8 million times before). #4 is curative about 98% of the time. The other 2% often requires professional attention.

My LS2125i will sew a straight stitch but when I turn it to a zigzag stitch it takes a couple of stitches, then all of a sudden the top thread on the spool holder goes... whirl and winds the thread around...


sounds like your thread is getting caught in the thread spool's thread keeper notch. Make sure you use the spool holder disk with the closest size to the spool of thread to help prevent that. This is pretty common with old fashioned spools like coats and clark spools.

My brother suggests that i make sure the spool unwinds in a certain direction. You might check your manual to be certain the thread is unwinding the correct way.

Good luck.

have you checked to see if the needle is bent-lay the needle on a flat surface & roll the needle over,, if the needle does not roll good -replace
blunt needle-if the needle makes a popping sound when the needle penetrates the fabric,,the needle is blunt-replace
sometimes if the thread comes off the thread take-up lever it can jam the thread in the bobbin area
try rethreading the machine
check to make sure the thread isn't wrapping around the spool pin
check the spool of thread to see if the notch on the spool is catching the top thread
check to see if there's a burr on the bobbin case
I hope one of these suggestions helps you

My Memory Craft sews great until I start to quilt or use one of the different stitches and then the stitches either skip or become so tiney I can't pick them out.


Skipping could indicate you need to use a larger size needle.

Tiny stitches could be save reason, or the top thread is hanging up.

Sometimes the thread can wrap around the spool pin or catch on a rough surface on the end of the spool.

Be sure to use the correct size spool cap and if the thread is wrapping around the pin, a thread net can help.

Give the machine a cleaning according to the maintenance section of the manual for your machine, including cleaning the feed dogs, bobbin case, shuttle and surrounding area.

Make sure the feed dogs are up unless you are free motion quilting and the presser foot down.

This may seem elementary.........just trying to cover all the bases.

Bobbon thread is too losse /thread breaks no


Clean out the bobbin area.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up. This opens the tension so the thread can enter. Threading with the foot down closes the tension and the thread cannot enter as it should. When you sew, the top thread is loose and cannot properly connect with the bobbin thread to form a tight stitch. The stitching does not hold and pulls right out.

Thread breakage - top thread? Check the thread spool to be sure there aren't any nicks to catch the thread.

When the thread breaks, check the spool pin to see if the thread is unwinding too fast and wrapping around the pin. Thread nets can help stop this. You can find them at sewing machine dealers.

Thread keeps wrapping around bobbin


frustrating huh?  it happens!  even to us that have been sewing for 50+ years, but the solution is very simple.  Top thread tension is the culprit.  pull the spool all the way off and rethread the top, follow the threading path precisely and make sure the thread goes down into the tension discs.
one more thing - when that happens often times the piece has to be removed from the machine by cutting those annoying loops on the bottom.  if this is the case, make sure you have removed all the thread clippings from in and around the bobbin case.  sometimes one little piece of thread will make you want to use swear words.
good luck and happy stitching.

Beeps several times and stops sewing.


I had the same problem. Through trial and error, I found the problem was with the thread tension. Usually the thread became wrapped around the spool holder as it was coming off the spool. As you continue to press the pedal, tension is created. When you release the pedal, some slack develops in the threading process and you are able to sew a few more stitches before the beeping starts again. If the thread is caught on the spool holder, simple re-thread the machine.That generally works for me. Also you can try to push to spool holder in as close as possible to the spool pin to alleviate any gaps. If the beeping continues to happen, place you thread in a cup behind the machine and thread as usual. You can also purchase an inexpensive thread holder. I made one out of a wood block and other odds and ends found around the house. Good Luck!
