Thread suddenly jams , bobbin won't turn,after cleaning, re-threading etc makes one stitch with wheel turn then jams again.


Besides installing a brand new needle (which you've already done), unthread the top thread. (Cut the thread below the spool, raise the presser foot, and pull the thread DOWN from the thread tail end--NEVER PULL thread UP!)

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point and then tweak it so both threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Bobbin tension and thread continously breaking. seems as if cotton is making loops and hooking itself somewhere by bobbin casing while sewing.


The needle/hook could be out of time. First, make sure you are using a brand-new needle.

If you can open the bobbin mechanism and hand-rotate the handwheel, watch the needle/hook action. You may see the problem as it occurs. (There are many web sites and videos online re sewing machine timing.) There could also be a burr/nick somewhere that is catching the thread. Check that the thread is not catching on the thread spool or somewhere in the thread path. Also, verify that it is threaded through all the thread guides correctly. Sometimes the thread will "jump" out of a guide or loop around one causing problems.

Rethread from the beginning--first raise the presser foot to insure the tension disk is released to allow the thread to seat properly. Check that there are no threads, gunk, or lint stuck in the tension disk. Also, clean the bobbin area and feed dogs of any accumulated thread/lint.

There is also a possible problem with needle/thread/fabric incompatibility. Avoid old or bargain bin thread. Make sure the needle is the correct type for the thread, ie the needle eye is too small for the thread, causing the thread to shred and eventually break.

Could also be that the tensions are set too tight.

I need a repair manual or need to know why when i try to sew it wont pick up the bobbin thread


The easiest thing to try is replace the needle with a brand-new needle. If the needle is bent or damaged, it may not be engaging with the bobbin thread correctly. Also make sure it is installed with the flat side facing the correct direction. Be sure to Raise the presser foot before threading the upper thread so it will seat properly in the tension disks.

What do I need to do to correct bird nesting?


Everything! Change the needle...make sure it faces the correct direction ( there is a front and back)...refill the bobbin with new thread ( old thread breaks, frays, releases lint etc..) and make absolutely sure you are winding the thread off of the spool and on to the bobbin correctly, clean the bobbin case with the little lint brush tool, and make sure you have the bobbin in the case in with the thread coming out correctly. Some machines have it coming out clockwise and some counterclockwise. Also be sure the needle plate has no burrs where the thread might be catching. Good luck!

I have a brother sewing machine. i threaded and have rethreaded and threaded the bobbin over and over. it will not move the fabric and botton thread will not catch onto top. what am i doing wrong?


Brother machines are usually a very good brand. Sounds like you are having a small problem with threading..........I know how frustrating that can be!
Start over....totally from the beginning. First, clean the machine of all dust, I use a small paint brush to remove lint from the bobbin case area. Oil the machine. Remove all the thread from the machine, use a different bobbin and rewind it with new thread. Make sure the bobbin thread is the same as the thread you use to thread the upper needle with. Use a new needle that is the appropriate size for your sewing project. Check to make sure the feed dog is moving when you turn the wheel that raises the needle up and down. New needle, new bobbin, new thread......before you place the fabric under the presser foot (and with the presser foot raised), turn the wheel one complete rotation to allow the upper needle thread to catch the bobbin thread. Gently pull both threads out towards the back of the machine, making sure the bobbin thread is now coming up through the little hole in the feed dog plate. Place fabric under the presser foot, lower presser foot and as you slowly start to sew, make sure you have the bobbin thread pulled with slight tension out from the back of the needle. This will take up any slack in the bobbin thread and keep it from making a knotted mess. Good luck, I hope this helps.

The bobbin thread is not catching. I have rethreaded the entire machine multiple times, tried different bobbins, etc. However, the needle and thread are not catching the bobbin thread. The bobbin thread is...


try a new needle
make sure the bobbin is not warped
make sure the bobbin case area is free of lint or loose thread
make sure you hold the upper thread tail while it's going down to pick up the bobbin thread
make sure there is a 2 to 4 in tail for the upper thread to grab

My bobbin wont engage with the stich. it just keeps getting jammed up. i lost the manuel i have no idea what to set the tension.


Hello,
Try these solutions

* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your
bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.

* Change your bobbin. There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you sew.

* When you start to sew a seam, Hold the upper and bobbin thread tails back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting caught in your machine.


I hope this helps.
