Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Janome 6600 sewing machine. bobbin thread is gumming up underneath on a swimsuit knit type material (4 layers). Brand new machine had 1 1/2 weeks. Sometimes material goes down into the bobbin area jammed by needle. What am I doing wrong?


Answers :

Make sure you're using a polyester thread (I use maxilock serger thread) then a stretch needle, and hold the tails of your thread until you get started into the seam so the fabric cannot push down into the opening on the throat plate.

\015\012Also, a small zigzag stitch (about 1.8 - 2.0 wide) is good to use on lycra as that will allow the fabric to stretch after the garment is made.

My Janome Harmony 8100 will occasionally stop and give me a System Error #1 - I cannot find anything about this error. It is a computerized machine with 70 stiches and attachable embroidery hoop. I first started getting this error with the hoop and now get it when I am just sewing. As soon as the needle goes down to the bobbin, I get the error. The machine freezes and the only way to get rid of the error is to turn the machine off. Sometimes I can get the machine going again, but now it wil

I have a Singer Model #4562 sewing machine. I am having trouble adjusting the tension. Everytime I try and turn the knob to adjust the bobbin just gets looser. Right now it just snags and gets caught underneath the material and bunches up into a big ball. There is a lot of thread inside the bobbin case that came out of the bobbin and has to be cut out to free the material. How do I fix this mess. I am a novice at this. I have not sewn in several years and would like to sew a few quilts

Jun 24, 2010 - Jun 24, 2010 - Needle not bent/ new needle not answer. I finally conclude that the entire bobbin case is ROTATING in its seat, which jams the needle. The "projection" is against the "spring" when I install it, but I can rotate the bobbin case PAST the spring without trying very hard. Bobbin case MIGHT get held in place better if it were closer to me (front of machine). I feel it is still not out from under needle plate as shown in diagram, but can't keep it closer to f

Lately we've been having plumbing problems to where our washing machine floods up our bath tub and toilet. And it happens while we have the washing machine on of course. Another problem is that whenever we are taking a shower our tub starts to clog up and water starts pouring out from the bottom of our toilet. We had a plumber come by to root out our pipes just last week and it was fine for about 3 days. And now the problem is back and driving me crazy. WHAT IS WRONG AND HOW CAN I FIX IT??

My Kenmore sewing machine timing has gotten off. I am sewing a big upholstery project and it starting bunching thread from the bobbin. The thread is so heavy that I had to put some pressure just to get it undone. This happen a few times and then I found it wasn't sewing at all. When I evaluated without the materials in place I could see the needle would catch on the white plastic piece under the bobbin and the thread would not catch on the metal arm. It appears to be off by 1/4 - 3/8 inch.

I have had 226R 20 years. Don't use it much. I have learned to pull slack out of top thread to start so I do that. However, sometimes, as today, it will wind the thread around the bobbin holder and I have to take time to ge it all out clean it up. Is something out of adjustment or what. Sometimes it will sew OK then all of a suden it will start to wind the thread around the bobbin holder again. So I'm confused. Do you have any ideas. Thanks
