How do you thread an elna contessa 415. I have lost the manual and I don't seem to be able to find one. So if someone could send me a diagram of the threading instructions it would solve my problem.

I have a brother project runway limited edition sewing machine and there is a constant jam with the bobbin threading and I have cleaned it,removed the sewing plate and everything I can possibly think of. If the bobbin case is scratched would it cause the jam?

I have a Pfaff Classic Style 2025. After clearing a thread jam in the bobbin area, the machine will not sew. It works without thread, but I think the bobbin case is crooked. The bobbin opening is off to the right, not up, as it needs to be.

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

So, I was sewing along and heard a thump...kind of sounded like a louder version of what you hear when the needle hits a pin...but I wasn't using pins. This, of course, lead to the thread jamming so I had to clear that. When rethreading I pulled out the bobbin case to make sure it was seated correctly and found a kind of "v" shaped piece of wire (about the width of a paper clip I guess) sitting loose under the bobbin case. I took it out and threw it away. Still can't pull up the bobbin threa


That part was the hook end of the spring that was supposed to put tension on the bobbin - it will have to be replaced. This is a special flat spring that unfortunately only a repair shop of a dealer has it - you will have to take your machine to one. ... Vacuums

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

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?

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

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.

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

With my K6 Industrial Singer sewing machine the top thread seems to be too tight. The bottom thread is looping too much on the top of the fabric. The timming is ok.

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 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
