I have a Pfaff 7570 ... having a problem with the upper thread making a small loop just above the fabric by the eye of the needle, just before the tip of the needle is piercing the fabric, the stitches that produced are properly formed with the right tension, but the loops get in the way sometimes and I know it never used to do this before. After reading the service manual I'm suspecting the "thread check spring" is not functioning properly. The manual gives steps how to adjust it, but it d

The thread off the needle gets caught in the hook race and the machine eventually stops. Tried different tension on the needle and the pressure adjusting lever is set at three. This is the second time I have used this new Kenmore Model 385.16231.

The last time I sewed with my Necchi the tension was fine. Today when I threaded my needle, the thread felt tight in the upper tension dial. I tried re-threading the machine several times, but it didn't help. Now the parts of the tension dial are all loose and wobbbly and I have no upper tension. Doesn't matter what the dial is set on. The tension dial appears to be broken, but I don't know how that could have happend since I store it in a case.

Singer 327 lower bobbin thread is wild and loopy after I sew...top stitch fine. Just changed to a large thread spool with the heavy remote base and crook to carry thread to machine and wonder if this changed tension (set at 4 and correctly threaded)? It had been working fine in zigzag but I also went back to reg foot and set stitch width at 0, center needle set. Thanks for your input and help. Deanna

My Dyson has suddenly starting making this LOUD, horrible sound when I am using it on the carpet setting. However, when I use it on the floor setting, I do not get this noise. Also, I think the 'sucking' power is not as strong.


You need to check the beater bar on the bottom and the hose from the beater to the canister. You may have something stuck in the beater system. ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I just had this machine delivered yesterday (Janome Magnolia 7330). When I sew a straight seam (all I've tried so far) I get loops at the underside of the fabric. I adjusted the upper thread tension, but that did not help. In fact the loops got larger as I increased the tension. My thought is that I don't have the machine threaded correctly. Thanks!


Your problem is in the tension adjustment. also check the stitch lengths. \012\012Kdog ... Vacuums

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


Hi wwilson63,What make is that 226R?The problem is that the thread is not threaded correctly. You must be very careful and follow directions explicitly.Once you think you have it threaded correctly, sew a few stitches and see ... Vacuums

On my hover U6616-900 the self propell work fine on the med setting on med height carpet, but when I go to low height carpet and height set on med the self propell does not pull the vacuum and it is hard to push. Also if I raise the height to the highest setting the self propell works correctly and appears to clen. Any ideas? S/N 090400184555, think this vacuum is maybe 5 years old and my wife uses it lots. Should I think of maybe a complete overhaul or a replacement at this time?


This is a typical problem you are describing. I would recommend you change the belts, this will resolve the "hard to push" and most likely resove your issues. based on the s/n given you maching was made on sept 2004. ... Hoover U6616-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

Bissell will spray water when set to water rinse, but as soon as it is set to light, normal, or heavy cleaning, there is no spray. I have tried priming but to no avail. I put plain water in the solution tank to test without ay success. It is like it loses it's prime whenever you try to use a solution mix. Once you set it back to water rinse only and go through the priming steps, it is OK. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.


Please check the following with liquid in both tanks.\012 \012- Check to see if the machine will spray through the hose with the setting on tools. If it does, the pump is fine. Continue troubleshooting.\012- Check for ... Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X CleanShot Upright Deep Cleaner, Red Berends Vacuum

I have a Liftmaster garage door opener and the garage door faces south. Normally the opener works great except at certain times on a sunny day.The sunlight is not directly hitting one of the sensors but the door will comedown as far as half way and then it will go back up and the lights will flash. If I go inside and use the button I can hold it down until the door is fully closed. However, sure is a pain to have to take the car out, go back into the garage, shut the door and then leave the h

I have a Bissel Pro Heat Plus and I used it once, one year ago. I may be using it wrong, as my carpets were wet and there was no return (dirty water). If I remember correctly, going forward wets and cleans the area and to dry the area you move backwards. Please help, as I can not find my manual anywhere (which is not like me). HELP!


It has only one tank that serves two purposes. It holds the clean water and collects the dirty water, so you only have to empty/fill one tank.

I have cleaned the machine, turned it off and back on, rethread it numberous times and tried to manually correct the tension. but nothing helps. What am i missing? Thanks

Does the epic 3500 have a belt? It seems that when running on the carpet setting, it is very noisy and is not picking up the way it should. When we run it on the floor setting, it sounds better, but the rolloer doesn't go around to fluff the carpet. What is wrong?


Yes, it does. It definitely sounds like a broken belt. And the noise would probably be due to the belt still being in the machine and hitting the motor shaft.\015\012Due to some difficulty in reassembling the powerhead and getting the belt to ... Electrolux Epic 3500 Vacuum

Dirt finder I have a Hoover U6439-900.  After the cleaner was used a few times, the dirt finder light cycles between green and red on the regular setting and will not go to green.  On the sensitive setting, the red light stays on most of the time.  I have tried to run the cleaner to remove any dirt but have not solved the problem.
