I'm using 138 wt thread with a #21 needle and things go smoothly on long straight runs, with any setting (long/short, straight/zigzag, forward/reverse).  But when I'm doing smaller work, like tacking a tape end, or joining two straps, the thread often gets partially cut, i.e., one strand will bunch up at the needle eye while the remaining strand continues to sew.  This doesn't last long, however, as the buildup of the non-sewing strand becomes a problem and, hey, I don't want 1/2-strength seams!
I fear there is something wrong with the shuttle timing or position.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

Can you post responses in the forum so that one can learn from the posts. I am experiencing the same thing and wanted to know your solution. Its a holiday weekend and I'm in the middle of a large sail repair. Thanks

Most likely this situation is caused by any of these things:

1. Bad needle
2. Needle not inserted properly
3. Needle bar height slipped
4. Burr on cap spring
5. Burr on hook point
6. Timing slipped

We can give you the best personalized support if you call in and start a support case. In this way we can help to narrow down the issue. But hopefully the above list can help in the meantime.


Best Regards,
Matt Grant
