Horizontal hook system

How do I get my sewing machine unstuck?

If your sewing machine has jammed, there is often thread stuck at the bottom, you can easily fix this yourself and prevent it. Broken threads can wind around machine parts and prevent parts from moving.

The hook of a sewing machine should be cleaned regularly to keep your sewing machine clean and happy!

Turn off the machine (unplug it). Remove the snap-in foot (fig. 1) and take out the needle (fig. 2). Retighten the needle holder.


Unscrew the 2 screws from the needle plate (fig. 3) and remove the needle plate (fig. 4).


Remove the bobbin case by lifting it towards you (fig. 5). Brush away all dirt and dust from the hook (fig. 6). If necessary, use a vacuum cleaner or compressed air.


Then reassemble everything in reverse order.
Now you can start testing, make sure the machine is threaded correctly otherwise the machine will continue to stuck.
