The Most Common Reasons For Sewing Machine Repair

by Alexa Armstrong

Sewing machines can be delicate instruments. And as with most machines, wear and tear over time can cause them to malfunction or break down completely. These machines often require expert repair or maintenance to keep them functioning properly for long-term use.

To help you troubleshoot some of the more common issues with your sewing machine, here are a few of the most common reasons for needing repair.

Thread Jamming

Thread jamming usually happens when threads get tangled in the bobbin case or if they are pulled too tightly while winding the spool. The bobbin case is a small, removable part found underneath the needle plate that holds the bobbin.

To fix this issue, you'll need to remove the bobbin case and untangle the thread. It's not always that easy, however. If the thread jam is too severe, you may need to take it to a sewing machine repair shop to avoid damaging your machine.

Thread jamming can also occur when the thread is not properly wound onto the spool or if it is wound in an unbalanced manner. The thread won't pull through the machine if it's not wound correctly, which can lead to it getting stuck or tangled.

To avoid this problem, make sure your thread is wound evenly and tightly on the spool before use, and always use a new needle when stitching. But if the problem is already there, a repair specialist can easily fix it by altering the tension and winding the thread properly.

Motor Issues

Over time, motors in sewing machines can become worn out or even burn out due to extended use or lack of proper maintenance. These motors have sensitive internal wires and parts that can slowly degrade over time and cause the motor to become inoperable.

To prevent motor issues, you need to regularly oil and clean your machine and ensure that all moving parts are in good condition and running smoothly. Additionally, make sure you don't overload your machine with too much fabric at one time, as this can put unnecessary strain on the motor and cause it to fail prematurely.

Damaged motors can still be repaired if you don't wait too long to fix an issue. A qualified technician can first inspect the motor to determine if it can be saved and then make any necessary repairs or replacements. Usually, this might involve a complete rewiring or replacement of the damaged parts.

Breakdowns Due to Wear & Tear

Wear and tear over time can also cause a breakdown in your sewing machine which will require repair. This usually occurs when parts become loose or worn out due to extended use or lack of proper maintenance and care.

For example, the tension settings may suddenly become an issue, often leading to skipped stitches or fabric bunching up. In some cases, the feed dogs may also become worn out, which can cause the fabric to shift while stitching.

To avoid this type of issue, make sure you perform regular maintenance on your machine, such as lubricating any moving parts and replacing any broken or worn-out components as soon as possible. Additionally, keep an eye out for any potential problems, such as loose screws or frayed wires, which could lead to further damage.
