Sounds like a safety feature, ie is it getting too hot? May take it for service.

Loops on the bottom of the fabric direct the problem to the top thread. Rethread again and make sure the thread goes through the tension discs. Lift the foot, because this is what opens the discs. When sewing and the foot is down, the discs should be closed and thus giving the upper thread the tension it needs.

Not necessarily, a thin needle will break on heavy weight materials, the needle clamp screw could be loose, it could be an issue with the pressure foot (wrong type or mis-installed), or you could be pulling the fabric too quickly. Before you assume the timing is bad...

  • Use correct size needle.
  • Properly insert needle.
  • Securely tighten needle clamp screw.
  • Use correct presser foot.
  • Reset presser foot.
  • Do not pull fabric, guide it gently.

Open up the bobbin area and clean out any lint or thread that may have accumulated.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up.

When changing the position of the fabric (turning a corner or sewing a curved seam, for example), lower the needle into the fabric to prevent the stitch from malformation and tangling with the bobbin thread.

Start sewing by holding onto the thread ends and hand walking the needle into the fabric for one or two stitches.

If this problem continues, the timing may need to be adjusted and this does require a trip to the shop for proper service.

so many different versions to disengage the drive, but all are located on the right hand side of the machine on the part that allows you to rotate the sewing mechanism by hand. there is likely a button or that part will pull outwards

go to a sewing trades shop/ retailer and ask them
there is a variety of generic needles that will cover a range of materials and the only needle that you will be concerned with will be the leather needle
