Sewing machine timing
Sewing machine timing refers to the synchronization of the needle and the shuttle hook or bobbin case in order to form proper stitches. When the timing is off, the needle and hook may not meet at the right time, resulting in issues such as skipped stitches, broken needles, or thread bunching.
Here are some signs that your sewing machine's timing may be off:
Skipped stitches: If the needle is not catching the bobbin thread properly, it can result in skipped stitches where the needle thread fails to form a complete stitch with the bobbin thread.
Broken needles: Improper timing can cause the needle to hit the bobbin case or shuttle hook, resulting in broken needles.
Uneven stitches: When the timing is off, you may notice that your stitches appear uneven, with varying tension or length.
Thread bunching or looping: Incorrect timing can cause the upper thread to tangle or create loops on the underside of the fabric.
If you suspect that your sewing machine's timing is off, it's usually best to have it adjusted by a professional sewing machine technician from Konsew Adjusting the timing can be a complex task that requires specialized knowledge and tools.
Attempting to adjust the timing yourself without proper expertise may lead to further damage or complications. It's always recommended to consult your sewing machine's manual or contact the manufacturer for guidance on timing adjustments or to find a qualified technician who can assist you.
