Hello,

Here are a couple of things to try.

- Re-thread your machine, it may be threaded incorrectly.

- Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this feature.


Note:
when you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting caught in your machine.

Hope this helps.

Most domestic sewing machines will not handle heavier thread than the standard 50 weight. I'd suggest you go back to regular polyester sewing thread and use a 110 or 120 size needle to cope with the heavier fabric. Sew slowly and give it some help on the flywheel when crossing a seam allowance. Maybe stitch each seam twice, with a 1mm gap between to give it strength.

If you need to use the heavier thread to do the job then you will probably need an industrial sewing machine that can handle that grade of fabric and thread. Something like a Singer 20U machine in a table with seperate motor drive.

Fabrics like Canvas, ticking and PVC for exterior items are generally going to be beyond the functionality of a domestic machine and you can damage the machine, particularly the timing by trying.

SOURCE: I HAVE A EURO SEWING MACHINE MODEL 373 IT WILL NOT SEW A STITCH

try these suggestions
change the needle
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw.

try rethreading the machine top & bobbin
make sure the bobbin is not warped
make sure the bobbin is wound correctly & inserted correctly
in the bobbin case
if none of these suggestions help,, then you might think about having
the machine checked to see if there is something wrong inside the
machine

Janome one step Despite altering the tension dial the top thread is looping on underside of material and when pressing the reverse button material puckers.I tried adjusting the tension dial from 0-9


Usually, this occurs because the top thread is not fully seated in the tension disk.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Reset your top tension to the midway point and then tweak it.

My needle won't grab the bobbin thread but if I put some fabric in and start to sew the bobbin thread comes through. However, the bottom thread is all bunched up and causes the machine to jam.


the looping on the underside sounds like a needle thread tension problem. 1st off check top (needle) threading then turn machine by hand to pick up bobbin thread

The cotton on my bernina 801 keeps jamming


Loops on bottom indicate a top thread tension problem.

Make sure needle is the correct size and not bent or broken
Make sure it is threaded properly with the lever UP.

Do a test stitch.

If it still loops below... tighten the top tension and do another test stitch... keep doing this until the stitch is balanced.

BTW... always grasp and hold both threads when starting a seam.

The underside is sewing with loops and then gets jammed..?


first try pulling all the threads out and rethreading. look for anything jamming the guides. try threading the top of the machine then cutting at the cotton real and pulling the thread out towards the needle, in the direction the thread should run. A good clean would not hurt.

Thread the machine with different color thread for the needle and the bobbin, then see which color is bunching up.Ill bet it is the top thread.
