My Sewing Machine Hates Me! Please Help!
I've tried everything I can think of to sort out my sewing machine, so I'm hoping one you talented super sewers could maybe help me!
It was working fine until I somehow 'broke' the bobbin case, the needle had a 90 degrees angle in it so I'm assuming the two are somehow related.
Anyhow, I ordered a new bobbin case, removed the broken one, including the little bit that had broken off, I also removed a not so insignificant ball of fluff and lint.
I put the new bobbin case in, using the instruction manual to guide me.
I threaded the machine, top and bottom, set the tension and my stitch selection to their normal positions and then I get this....
1)The top thread is bunching up underneath the fabric
- The top thread is winding around and back over the bobbin case
- The fabric is being forced into the hole where the needle goes down
I've looked at the trouble shooting guide in the instruction manual, and I've been to the Singer website and followed the advice there.
I've tried new thread, put in a new needle, re threaded the machine (top and bottom), used different fabric, adjusted the tension, I've even threaten it with a screw driver and knowing what happened to the dishwasher I was sure this would work!
But nope, nothing is working.
Does anyone have any suggestions, I'm totally stuck as to what to do now!
