If the needle broke into where the bobbin area is
you may have to try pulling the fabric out of the bobbin area or cutting the fabric loose
the machine needs to be serviced because the jam may have put it out of time

SOURCE: thread bunching

I discovered that when the thread is knotting up on the underside of the material that it is usually the threading on top and has nothing to do with the bobbin.

SOURCE: while sewing the bobbin case moves, wheel locks up, needle locks

Im not sure if this will help but thought I would pass it along. My Pfaff 6122 tells me to check bobbin for thread unrolling clockwise before you place it back in the machine. I had mine turned to un roll counter clockwise, this is wrong, the bobbin will fall out when you pull on the thread while you are holding it in your hand. You may just keep putting it in backwards. Hope this works for you. J.R.

After replacing the bobbin the sewing hook/bobbin doesnt turn anymore. It will spin if you turn the wheel backwards but it wont do anything when turned forward.


Did the machine get jammed? Maybe the timing belt clutch came disconnected. Look on the bottom of the machine while turning the hand wheel and see if the lower horizontal shaft is turning at the left end. If not, you have to regage the clutch. Let me know if this the case.

My sewing machine is like stuck or something the nob wont turn it wont sew it wont do any thing but make a noise


Is the thread jammed around the bobbin area? Open up the bobbin cover and check it all out, clean out any jammed or broken threads and rethread the machine.

The other thing to check is that the clucth in the side wheel is engaged. If you disengage the clutch to wind a bobbin, ensure that you engage it again to start sewing.

Hope this helps, otherwise it might be serviceman time.

Hand wheel wont turn


Probably something jammed in or near the bobbin case or hook area.

Machine is jamming


You need to remove the bobbin from the "race" by following the instructions in the manual. Give it a good clean and remove any bits of fluff and thread. Remove the upper thread also andmake sure that the tension wheel is clear of any broken threads and is on the correct setting. It may have been threaded wrong. The hand wheel not turning sounds like the bobbin area is jammed also.

Balance wheel is totally jammed


machine was working fine when suddenly it just jammed up. Everything seems to be fine, but the balance wheel is completely jammed rigid. I've looked at the shuttle and there are no thread jams at all. The needle moves fine from side to side with different stitch selections, but wont go up and down with the wheel.
I have tried looking in the machine, but I can't find any thread jammed.

Wheel won't turn


Hello,

The same thing happend to me with an older model (Singer XL 10). I have been sewing a decorating stitch and the machine stopped suddenly. Now I am not able to turn the hand wheel anymore like I should (I can move it a little bit, but the needle does not move up and down and the wheel is getting stuck). When I try to use the pedal the motor makes a horrible noise and stops. The needle is not moving up and down.

Is there a solution for that problem? I moved from Europe to Australia and have not used my machine since. Today is the first day, I was cleaning and oiling it and it first sewed perfectly. In case that there would be thread stuck somewhere, how could I possibly clean that? I already took off the plastic from the head, but I can not see where the problem is.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Best regards,
Nelly

Kenmore 385. 11607 needle jams into shuttle or shuttle race


I had the same problem with cleaning and jamming and this might sound silly, but when you're in the middle of trying to fix it remember to look up see that it is threaded up top. I did everything the pp's suggested and when they didn't work I realized the top thread wasn't still threaded around the tension thing anymore. After rethreading it, it worked fine. But I DID reduce the amount of thread on the bobbin at the same time as Drazil suggested.
