    You're the 1st person I've seen mention this & the main reason I'm very "sparing" when it comes to glue. Only stands to reason that too much will cause a prob sooner or later.My machine is more important to me than glue.The tiniest drop works & I make sure it's in the seam allowance,where no sewing happens. Just my 2 cents.

It took some detective work to figure that out, and then some elbow grease to clean it up. I had to do clean it several times, but finally was able to sew again. Now I am much more careful when using gluey materials while sewing!

    the only time I've had this happen to me was when the thread came out of the lifter guide . Don'tknow why it happens, but isn't unusual for me, and you can't tell until you start sewing.

    you re-thread the top? i know that when the thread pops out of the up and down arm it will get caught in the feed dogs and not work. hope this helps.

    I called one of our local sewing repairs and they said that it was alot of times it is just a threading issue. So I rethreaded my machine and am up and running like new. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaa......

    I usually rethread my machine and take my bobbin out and check that its rolling freely then start sewing. It works 99% of the time.
