It is amazing how much those stores know. I suppose that could be a common thing among that particular machine.

Whatever you do don\'t buy a "WHITE" machine as they work for about 2 hours then they die. I had to keep taking it back and forth 45 miles each way for over 1 month and the person whom owned a shop couldn\'t fix it. Of course he said it was fixed and when I stepped on the gas nope same thing happened.

I also won\'t ever buy any new singer machines. They are bad...now if you can get a hold of an older one that is medal inside instead of plastic parts it would pay to keep it running.

I have sewn for over 42 yrs. I have gone threw a lot of different machines trying them out. I own about 6 machines now not including my embroidery/sewing machine or serger. I always have one or more working. I was tired of having it break down at Christmas time.

I even loaned out one to my 18 yr. I took her 20 yr old Janome (all metal inside) machine into the shop.

Oh yes, youtube has videos on everything!

SOURCE: I have a Brother SE-270D

its the problem of the timing belt in your machine its extra loosen or extra tightned or is slightly came out of its position or finally broken.
as the machine is proper just missing the proper speed as it should be .
it is running continuosly as you stated.
check the timing belt and make it proper if its worn out and needs replacement this is how its done

There is an adjusting screw on the right side of the machine head. Follow the motor bracket to the machine head and loosen that big old screw or bolt which will raise or lower the motor giving you slack to remove or replace the belt.

feel free for further queries
thanks

SOURCE: my needle won't pick up the bobbin thread

My sewing machine is a Brother LS1217, well actually it is my son's, and he uses it very seldom. I went over to put in a new needle and I cleaned it top and bottom, put in a new bobbin, and a new needle and the needle won't pick up the bottom thread. What am I doing wrong? Please help me!! It has to be something simple, as this is such a simple machine! roseandjimmy@yahoo.com

You may have the bobbin case in wrong.  I have this machine, and I know that it is really easy to put the bobbin case in wrong.  Try taking it out and making sure that the little stop is in the front and it is seated down in there and able to wiggle back and forth.  My experience with this machine, until the other day when my cat knocked mine off the table and knocked something out of alignment, is that it just works.  Any time mine hasn't worked, it has either been dirty, needing oil, threaded wrong or the bobbin case wasn't seated right.  In other words, it has always been my fault.

SOURCE: Brother CS-6000i - the bobbin thread is not coming

Check list:

1 - Flat side of the needle is facing the back of the machine.

2 - Threaded machine with the presser foot up - always.

3 - Bobbin thread is feeding from the spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

Lower and raise the threaded needle, holding onto the end of the thread.

If this does not pull the bobbin thread up, the timing may need adjusting.

There is a graphic for doing this as sewusa.com or take it into the dealer for service.

My singer machine 2263 is leaving long loops under the cloth.I have tried every thing but nothing works, can you help?


Be sure to use a brand new needle.

Remove the upper thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot--this releases the tension disk so the thread will seat properly. Rethread the upper thread, making sure the path is correct.

Set the upper tension to the midway point (this is the standard starting point, but may need to be tweaked for your particular machine).

Now, retest your machine.

I am not sure about this particular machine but in most machines there will be a nob on the front loose low numbers like 0 1 -2 work well on number 3. If the nob is not on the front check and see if it is on the side.

The thread keeps bursting after a few stitches. I've tried adjusting upper & bottom tensions,changing the needle, trying it with different fabrics, but nothing seems to work. What do I do?


Usually when it stitches an inch or two and then breaks, the upper thread is mis-threaded.

Remove the upper thread and rethread from the beginning. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread. Check to make sure the thread path is correct. If it is threaded incorrectly, the thread will frequently break.

Also check that the thread is not hanging up somewhere, sometimes it gets looped around something or it snags on the little slit on the thread spool or a rough spot.

If the upper thread tension is too tight, it will also break the thread. Make sure the tension disk is clean. If there is gunk or a piece of thread stuck in the tension disk, it could be interfering.

If the thread is fraying as it goes through the needle eye, then there is probably an incompatibility of the needle, thread, fabric.

Why does bobbin cotton keep bunching?


Is it the upper thread bunching under the fabric? If so, it is usually incorrect upper threading, the thread is not seated in the tension disk, or the upper tension is too loose. Also, a damaged needle can cause issues.

Install a brand new needle that is compatible with the thread and fabric. Frequent changing of needles is an inexpensive fix for a frequent sewing issues.
All About Needles

Remove all the upper thread.
RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Make sure the thread path is correct (consult the manual).
Set the upper tension at the midway point between high & low numbers.

Retest. If the upper thread and bobbin thread are not meeting in the middle of the fabric stitched, then loosen or tighten the upper tension until it does.

NOTE: Always thread the upper thread with the presser foot in the raised position. This opens the disk and allows the thread to seat properly. Also to remove upper thread, it is best to clip the thread near the spool, raise the presser foot, and graspl the clipped thread tail near the needle and pull DOWN through the machine (Never pull thread up through the tension disk).

Noted that you cleaned the bobbin area, but also be sure to clean the feed dogs. Frequently, lint & dust accumulates in and around the teeth which can inhibit their ability to grasp the fabric firmly. Frequent cleaning in this area is important for your machine's maintenance.

Review the cleaning and oiling instructions in your manual. Oiling is important and should be performed frequently with 1-2 drops each spot as specified. Oiling the hook is usually good to do every 8 hours of sewing time. Use ONLY fresh good quality sewing machine oil for your machine--NOT 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or the old metal can in grandma's sewing basket.

Top thread leaving loops on the bottom of the fabric.


what you describe is an indication of the needle top thread tension being too loose
make sure that the thread is between the pressure plates of the tensioner and not behind it
next remove the plates around the base at the bit the moves the material through so that you can see when the needle is approaching the bobbin hook
when the needle is at the bottom of the movement, that bobbin hook should be almost at the eye of the needle .
that is called needle position timing
if the hook is not near the eye of the needle or past it then you will have to have the machine serviced and that timing corrected
check the way the need is installed
the cut away bit should be facing the hook and the small groove is where the thread sits so that it does not jam as it goes through the material

My bernette 65 is bunching underneath. How do I resolve that?


Grasp the threads and hold them down when you start your seam. If it still happens make sure your thread is seated into your upper tension mechanisms. If that still isn't solving your problem... CLEAN between the tension discs with some sturdy fabric folded in half. (wax build up from threads can cause issues)

Good luck

I am sewing leather, less than 5/8 or just about thick and my upper thread keeps breaking or coming out of needle. i am using a leather needle, which i changed, cleaned the race, adjusted tension, using 50...


What brand leather needles are you using? Keep machine out of Sun ok. All leather needs to be in cool or room temperature. try loosening bottom tension just alittle or top tension, I would start with bottom......I also use commercial polyester thread when doing tougher materials..

let me know

Upper thread will not catch bobbin thread


Your machine is out of time. It would be best to have a tech adjust the timing.

Bottom thread will not catch


Unplug the machine and remove the needle plate so that the bobbin case if fully exposed. Lift out the bobbin case and the cup that it sets in will be visible. Locate the "hook" on this cup. It is a finger with a sharp point at the upper edge of the cup. The hook is what grabs the thread from the needle while sewing.
  • Thread the needle.
  • Turn the handwheel by hand.
  • Watch the hook as it approaches the needle from right to left.
If the hook passes by the needle AFTER the eye of the needle is above it, you timing has slipped and the machine must be taken in for repair.
If the hook catches the thread from the needle, put everything back together and try threading again.
