Wheels and tires for Toyota FT86 to me?

Common Problems of Embroidery Machine and How to Fix Them

An uncooperative embroidery machine can make your work worse. To avoid a frustrating experience, you must know how to resolve a few problems, including snapped needles, skipped stitches, tangled threads, etc. We will share in this post how to fix such issues without sending your device for expensive repairs.

Thread Knots

If you notice thread knots under your stitches, remove your fabric from the machine before fixing this issue. You may have to cut all the extra threads to get it for free.
  • Remove the top thread and re-thread your embroidery machine. Be careful to follow the threading procedure provided in your machine manual. The pressing foot must be up during threading. Even on the best commercial embroidery machine, many tension discs make threading difficult if the presser foot is down.
  • Use the same types of threads in both the top and the bobbin. The difference in the weight of the yarn causes the fiber to be pulled at different rates, causing knots to form.
  • Improper tension adjustment can be a reason for this issue. Make sure you adjust settings whenever you move from thin fabrics to heavy ones.

Fabric Not Feeding

This issue arises when the drop-feed setting is not activated or if there is no covering of an embroidery plate on the feed dogs. Sometimes, too much or too little pressure can be a reason behind a poor feed, so make sure you set the correct pressure according to your fabric.

Continuous Thread Breaking

When you face this issue, check the type of thread you are using because weak options made for sewing are not suitable for embroidery tasks. Moreover, make sure you use the same ones on the top and bottom. In most cases, you can overcome this trouble by decreasing the tension settings for the top thread.

Bent or Broken Needles

It is an annoying and dangerous problem that can damage your fabric if not resolved immediately. To avoid such issues, you must use a new needle on the best embroidery machine for clothing for each embroidery project. If you still face problems, there might be a few mechanical issues that will require professional repair.

Stitches Skipping

Again, there might be various culprits when your machine missed stitches. First, check that the needle is attached correctly and whether you are using the correct type of needle for your fabric or not. If your machine is still leaving stitches after trying these fixes, you may need assistance from a technician to check and repair the trimming.

Inconsistent Bobbin Thread Tension

If you often have to adjust the bobbin's thread tension, you may need to replace the bobbin. Plastic bobbins get loose within the housing and fail to deliver the required outcomes.

Machine Does Not Run

If you often have to turn the wheel manually, stop your work immediately. Likely, your embroidery machine does not support sewing fabric because it is too thick.

Hear Strange Sounds

If you hear strange sounds, like clunks and thumps, coming from your embroidery machine, stop your work without any delay. However, mostly the best embroidery machine for logos will solely need cleaning. Read instructions provided in the user manual to perform the proper cleaning and oiling processes.

Final Thoughts

These troubleshooting steps will help you tackle most of your embroidery machines at home. You can visit CraftsSelection website to enjoy reading posts on different embroidery-related tasks.
