Brother XR 33 sewing machine: it does not feed fabric thur anymore unless I 'pull' it thru as I sew. This makes for a wavy final look and it sucks to pull the fabric that way. How can I fix the dog feed so that it will smoothly drive the fabric thru like it used to do. Thank you so much

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 a Janome DC2007LE sewing machine. I am trying to do a regular buttonhole. I have the correct foot on and the buttonhole lever down inbetween the gap. I also have my button in the back to make the correct size buttonhole. When I start to sew it will make the front bartack and then only a few stitches into the left row. Then it beeps three times quickly and shows bL in the screen. I can't find what that means. and don't know what I'm doing wrong. It is doing this with both square an

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?


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\012 ... Vacuums

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

On our Hoover U6445-900 (Mach 6.9) we replaced the small belt that goes to beater brushes in front of unit. Upon starting, the Hoover quickly got hot and smoky. We shut it off and looked things over carefully, but the second try also resulted in friction heat on the belt. Now it appears the belt may have stretched due to heat and the brushes won't spin. Any ideas?


Are you sure you purchased the right size belt..the friction you speak of is usually caused by a belt not being the right tightness or a jammed beater brush ... Hoover U6446-900 WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

It may be that the beater brush is bound up . This will cause slipping, of the belt. Take out the brush and clean out the bushing . Hair gets wound up in side. once you have it cleand out.

My Singer Izek sewing machine starts and stops and wont sew continuously. When I push down the pedal it sews about 2 inches then stops and light starts flashing, I have to let off of the pedal and push it again, over and over. It did this once before for awhile and then just started sewing right for awhile and now its started it again. I've checked everything.


If it's not the thread and not the pedal then it's definitely a power problem. You need to replace the power cable and then check again the functionality. ... Vacuums

I slid the lever to lower the feed dogs and now (like so many other people have posted on the internet) I can't get them back up! I've sought out answers on the Singer website have called/emailed them but with no results. I slid the lever to the up position for the feed dogs and rotated the hand wheel towards me several times (I was told this is what should raise them) but that didn't work. Does anybody on God's green earth know how to raise those stupid feed dogs???


Rotating the hand wheel will not move them. The lever should slide back from whence it came. Make sure you don't have the needle down among the dogs before you try to move it. The presser foot should also be raised first.\015\012Perhaps some ... Vacuums

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

Please please help me! I recently bought an Empisal Celebrity 550 Sewing machine, I've used it maybe 4 times up to now.

I checked the belt and it has not broken, but when I start to vaccum the spinning head stops, and I start to smell a rubber smell...Do you think I need to replace the belt, I did get some string caught in it the last time I vaccummed, and it did stink like rubber then also...


Yes you do need to replace the belt they stretch out. Think of a belt like a big rubber band if you were to stretch it out and hold a lighter to it the rubber band would stay stretched out. That is the same thing that happen ... Bissell Vacuums
