Question about Sew D'Lite Sewing Machines

Not creating a complete stitch

I have had my sewing machine for about a year now, maybe less and the machine does not pick up the bottom thread to complete threading. The top thread isn't moving and the bottom one isn't being caught at all in order to make a complete stitch.

The needle may be threaded from the wrong side. Newer models thread from front to back of the machine, older models will thread from right to left, It is usually determined by the positions of the needle eye. rethread the top, if this does not correct the problem thne rethread the bobbin, use the instr manual to make sure it is correct.

Singer Model 5523 runs but doesn't make stitches. Needle is threaded and bobbin is fine. It moves but when I check the stitches there are none. Thread is not breaking.


I am not an expert on anything, least of all sewing machines...

The needle should carry the top thread under the table and make a loop that picks up the bottom thread from the shuttle and it is the interaction between the two threads with equal tension that creates the stitches.

The major activity of a sewing machine takes place under the table and in particular it is the timing of that activity in relation to the needle movements that is essential.
The timing is critical but mostly non-adjustable. I suggest you ensure below the table activity is actually taking place and then revisit the winding of the thread onto the shuttle reel and inserting it into the shuttle...

How do I correct stitch length mechanism to produce 6 stitches per inch?


the stitch length is governed by the cam action connected to the walking foot
that means that the stitch length is governed by the amount of material that is pulled through in the period of time that the needle comes up and goes down
normally the cam action is set by the stitch length lever/ reverse lever
if there is a necessity for a longer stitch, the cam would have to be changed on the drive shaft underneath
That will require a discussion with a sewing machine mechanic to determine if there are cams or other linkages that can be fitted to alter the stitch length for the manufactured maximum

Easiest way to make a buttonhole...manual does not tell much info


Easiest way is to create a bar tack at one end of the buttonhole (widest stitch width and stitch length set to 0). Stitch maybe 4 or 5 stitches.
Then move needle all the way to the left, set stitch length to very short (maybe somewhere between 0 & 1), width to slightly less than half, stitch forward to the end of the buttonhole.
Then make another bar tack (as above). Move needle all the way to the right, set to less than half width, short stitch length, and stitch in REVERSE to first bar tack. To tie off, set width to 0 and length to 0 and stitch 2-3 times in place. Raise presser foot, pull gently on fabric and clip threads.

The top and bottom threads won't connect, to make a stitch.


Replace the needle with a brand new "Schmetz" needle..

If it still won't pick up the bottom thread, take it in for service.

Thread is knoting at the bottom and bursting. The machine is only sewing with elastic thread. When I try sewing with straight stitch or zig zag it will knot at the bottom and burst.


Maybe you need to adjust your tension and double check your threading. I have never (in 50 years) sewed with elastic thread but I think a call to Singer customer service at 1-800-4singer may be in order.

My mother has a Bernina record machine which has for the last 35 years not worked longer than a metre or so stitching on the most basic stitch without tangling the thread on the bottom spool. It has been...


Try threading the machine with the presser foot up and see if this helps.

When the foot is down during the threading, the thread does not enter the tension control as it should, then when you start to sew, the upper thread has no tension and does not form a stitch with the bobbin thread.

Top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread (Toyota sewing m.)


Hi! This may sound silly, but if you changed your needle and put it in backwards (which is easy to do), the top thread won't pick up the bottom thread. Take your needle out and check the flat side of the needle shank--which way is it facing? With a lot of the newer machines, the flat side goes to the back, but check your manual to make sure.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Happy Sewing!
