    Cool Sigma nova

    I have a sigma nova and am suddenly having trouble sewing with it. The top thread breaks every time I start. I think I must be threading it wrong but I am threading it as normal I think.
    Can anyone help.?

    Did you recently change the needle? If not, you might need a fresh one. If so, you might want to make sure it is seated properly.

    No not working. Does anyone know about the strange bobbin arrangement front loader, but the case has no top and a white piece of plastic appears to be stopping the bobbin from going in neatly.

    I have taken some photoes as the name on machine difficult to find anything about but somebody out there may recognise it.

    I love the nuclear logo...do you plug it in or does it run on atomic energy...

    Seriously though...I believe that this is a Spanish machine (made in Spain). Perhaps you could find more by looking carefully on the underside of the machine.

    It is a sigma 2016 nova model. But even that is not helping when I' m searching web.

    Well I've had a go and at the moment my machine is working. Off I go again. Nobody seems to have any ideas about this machine and no manuals any where.
