The machine in question is a Husqvarna 500, so if anyone out there uses this model and give some tips, they would be much appreciated.
My top tips for when my machine is playing up:
When my machine doesn't want to play nicely, I go through the following:
1: Make sure the machine is clean-clean bobbin housing and under the needle plate.
2. Make sure the machine is threaded properly-if necessary, refer to the instruction manual
3. Make sure the bobbin is loaded correctly-make sure the thread is coming off the bobbin in the right direction (usually clockwise) but check your instruction manual
4. Change the needle. Having a new needle makes a big difference and make sure the needle is correctly fitted
5. When was the machine last serviced? I once had a machine that never seemed to stitch properly from when it was new. A service rectified the problem.
And just check, you've reengaged the needle are winding the bobbin
Mo S What excellent advice! Especially number 3. My book makes no mention of that little detail and that was one of my variables I went through so often during one of Margaret's tantrums
