Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I bought this machine about 3 years ago but hadn't used it due to illness. Now when I tried to sew with the Tuff Sew ,the threads continually break. If I can make about a 3 inch line of staight stitches without the top thread breaking,I consider myself fortunate The direction in the manual are extremely poor. I had to finish my project with my very old Bernina. I regret buying the Tuff Sew straight stitch. JLWebb

Answers :

I do not have one but these machines require heavy duty thread...
\015\012The manufacture recommends using only "#69 Bonded Nylon Thread"
\015\012You should have a 18 to 20 gauge needle for that size thread. Needle type is 135x17
\015\012To be completely honest, these machines look like they are 20 to 30-year-old designs meant to be "store branded" machines (Woolworth, K-mart, Sears, ...). As demand at these types of stores dried up, they may have tried (successfully) to remarket them as "tuff" machines. Almost all older machines used all metal gears - it doesn't make them tough or high quality. The poor level of technical support and documentation would upset me too.
\015\012I really hope the recommended thread and needle help with your problem.
\015\012Good luck.

I have the Janome 6600 P. Beginning a seam the thread knotted and the machine made noise and needle would not move either up or down. I manually moved the needle using the handwheel and cut away the knotted thread. I began sewing again but instead of starting at the edge began about a half inch down, forward stitched, reversed to lock threads and problem repeated and received the message to "Stop for safety purposes". Did that. Referred to the manual, tried manual recommendation. Did not work. I

Borrowed Brother XR7700 Sewing Machine 1st: Sewed one inch OK; moved fabric and it stopped sewing, motor made thudding noise. When push-button (NOT pedal) is used, gives error E6, consistent with motor noise. 2d: In order to check threading had to manually PULL bobbin case toward me or it was UNDER needle plate. Cleaned a fair amount of dust out. Reinstalled bobbin, etc., per manual, rethreaded. 3rd: Will sew 2-3 stitches, then packs up again just like in 1st instance above. Have st

Our beautiful Bernina 730 sewing machine has been stored in the garage in its original case, and that wrapped in plastic, for a few years now. Temperatures have been both hot and cold in the garage, but the environment was dust-free. We have brought the Bernina in, set it up, oiled it as specified in the manual, with the original sewing machine oil. We have correctly threaded the machine and the bobbin thread is up. When we press on the pedal to sew, the machine gets electricity and buzzes

I was lucky enough to get a Janome 372 very cheaply at a second-hand store but it came without the manual. A friend managed to thread it so that it works but the threading is completely counter-intuitive and I'm not sure that I'll be able to remember how to do it without a threading diagram to turn to in a pinch. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a threading diagram online anywhere! Can anyone direct me to a site that shows this?

Kenmore YM-40-35 R Sewing Machine Manual (or copy) wanted. If a manual is not available, I'd be OK with instructions for threading the needle and bobbin and any additional details that an expert may have. I think the machine may be a Canadian model number, it looks old, made of metal with screwed in presser foot. Thanks v. much. Elizabeth, [email protected]
