The easy way to deal with jammed stitches

Most seamstresses can't handle the minor problems that occur with sewing machines, let alone female tailors.

They prefer to ask other people for help or call a tailor on call to repair the sewing machine if there is a problem. Although there are not many problems with sewing machines, such as skip stitches, loose stitches or stuck sewing loops.

Well this time the admin will give tips on how to overcome a jammed industrial sewing machine without the need to call a tailor. You can do this yourself or ask someone close to you for help by looking at this guide.

Before overcoming a jammed sewing machine, we must first know the cause

Causes of jammed sewing machine rotation

There were several reasons why a sewing machine could not turn, such as a loose lifeboat latch causing the lifeboat housing to shift and the timing being damaged or the needle being punctured so that the engine could not turn.

There is also a jam because the teeth or levers on the sewing machine are broken, causing them to be pinched and the sewing machine cannot turn.

But what most often causes a sewing machine to jam is because the swivel hook is wrapped in sewing thread so that the rotation becomes blocked or jammed. Why is the swivel hook wrapped in thread? usually due to a tailor's error such as improper thread placement or because the figs were never cleaned and became very dirty.

The easy way to deal with jammed stitches

This time the admin will give a way to overcome sewing jams because the lifeboat house is wrapped in thread. Since this is a minor damage, if it is caused by a broken tooth or lever, please remove it or contact a sewing technician.


Okay, the first thing that needs to be prepared is a min (-) screwdriver to open the make and tweezers and small scissors to clean dirt and threads that interfere with spinning.

1. Open the Gear and Gear cover

First, unscrew the toothpick that is directly under the needle. The point is to make it easier to clean the lifeboat house (rotary hook).

After that, open the sewing tool by opening the bolt first:

1. Open the sewing body

Take the lifeboat and bobbin and open the sewing body by opening it forward so you can see the bottom of the seam. Then see if there is any thread wrapped around the hook area.

2. Open the lock lever

If there is dirt, the lifeboat housing area is difficult to clean because the place is cramped and cannot move. Then we need to open the sewing machine lifeboat lock lever so that the lifeboat housing can turn.

After the lock lever is opened, we can turn the seam and the lifeboat housing. Now we can look for crooked threads or annoying dirt.

3. Clean the lifeboat area including the swivel hook

Thoroughly clean the lifeboat area using tweezers, or a brush if necessary. So that the dirt that sticks to the lifeboat housing does not interfere with the performance of the sewing machine rotation.

Make sure the swivel hook can rotate independently (not caught in the thread). After it can turn, please put the locking lever back on and try turning the sewing machine by hand. If you can play it means you have succeeded.

This is what is called a rotary hook or lifeboat house, if it is never cleaned there will be remnants of the thread that makes the rotation jammed.

To avoid the same, always clean the sewing machine after use.

Now that's an easy way to deal with a jammed sewing machine because the lifeboat's house is wrapped in thread. If it's not clear, please ask amen in the comments column on this blog. Thank you hopefully useful.
