The most common things that usually go wrong in a sewing machine are some of the most preventable things. The most commonly occurring issue we see when a machine comes in for repair is the timing; which I will explain further in a little bit; goes off. When the timing is off you will get loose stitches or threading balling up in clumps underneath the fabric, also known as nesting. Another common issue is the machine is not locking the stitch which is causing loose stitch on the fabric. Lastly the most common thing the thread keeps breaking as you try and sew. I will go though each of these common problems and what should be done to prevent this from happening; hopefully saving you a trip to the shop and some money! Now to further explain timing: timing is essentially the needle lining up at a certain point with the hook race(the metal disk that holds your bobbin case). Any number of things can throw the timing off, a few examples are the material you are sewing does not feed smoothly and the needle binds or deflects in the fabric causing the hook to eclipse past the needle thus changing the meeting point of the needle and hook. To fix this issue we have to adjust several things by the hook to realign the needle and the hook. Often when people bring in the sewing machine for repair where they are getting nesting its a common belief the tension just needs to be adjusted. While this is true for machines from the 60s and 70s; it is not true for the most part generally speaking for machines of this time period. Most machines now a days have better tension systems and quite a few have automatic adjusting tension now a days. One way to know if your timing is off is by moving the hand wheel or fly wheel manually towards you, as the needle makes one full revolution down to the hook and back up again you will hear a small metal clipping or pinging sound. This sound is from the needle ever so slightly just touching the hook. Now to prevent this issue from occurring frequently we recommend from our years of experience is when sewing doing a basic cleaning of the hook and oiling with a few drops of oil is needed every 8-12 hours of use or as a rule of thumb once a month. By oiling and removing all the lit that build up from sewing periodically, you will have less travel of debris elsewhere in the machine. With less filth going everywhere in the machine you with have a less likely hood of throwing the machine of timing. Secondly most common issue is loose stitches. Now while this observation is common its cause can be number of things; timing, tension is not set properly, thread didnt no go into the tension disk. If its timing you will be able to hear it by using the above referenced procedure. Now if its not timing then take of your spool of thread and the bobbin out. Re thread the machine; as you thread the machine make sure you have the thread line up and goes all the way through the tension assembly and the take up leaver. Most take up leavers have a small metal bracket that makes a sound like a door stopper when the thread is pulled through it properly. Now thread the bobbin case by placing your thread filled bobbin into your case. Run the thread through the tension on the case. This tension is the small gap between the housing of the case and a metal flange/bracket. Make sure the top is threaded all the way through the needle. Whilst holding the thread that has already passed through the needle; move the fly wheel towards you 1 revolution, if the machine is threaded correctly the top thread will pick up the the bobbin thread with full rotation of the fly wheel. If all worked well sew a sample stitch to test the machine to determine mis-threading was the issue. Lastly; if the thread keeps breaking on you while in the middle of sewing we have to look for a few things. Check to see if you can open the side cover by the light bulb, most machines will have this cover placed on a hinge allowing you to open it. If yours can open remover or open the cover and check the take up leaver for thread wrapping around the screw that holds the take up leaver to the main shaft of the machine. Check to see your needle is inserted into the machine properly, most modern machine the flat side of the needle is to the back of the machine. For a point of reference the flat side of the needle is away from you as you insert it into the needle clamp assembly. Check you top tension setting, if your tension is to high it will cause the thread to snap because too much pressure is being applied from the tension disks on to the thread; which is not allowing it to glide between the disks. Change out the thread to a different weighted thread like a cotton or polyester. The thread you might try to be using may be to thick or thin which is causing your issues. If all these don’t alleviate the problem then there may be a greater issue in the machine causing the snapped thread.At this point you should then take it to a trusted repair center. Most places should give a free estimate(we do so we expect anyone else should also). When we give an estimate, we have that estimate ready for the customer within a day or two depending on the work load we have at the time. No estimate should take a week unless a part is required and a price must be inquired for. With living in a dry environment its important to remember the harshness of where we live. Your machine you purchased needs tlc from time to time. Spend the 10-20 minutes to do these tips from this guide will save you a lot of money in the long run from repair bills to having to replace the machine sooner than needed. Also as an added plus the money you save from reading and following this guide you then can re utilize in buying thread and other necessary project supplies! Happy Sewing!
