    I am having the same problem, My machine worked well until I changed the thread, then every time I try to use it; the thread tangles under the material. It is tangled in the bobbin and just a mess. The thread is of the same gauge and quality.



    Please help!!!

    My sewing machine was working fine and the next time i went to use it my fabric wouldn't feed at all, and there was a mess of bobbin thread on the underside of the fabric.

  • Lizdazbenn Mar 30, 2009

    Tread keeps tangling up on underside of material. This is after machine has been working fine. Taking out bobbin and clean out and re oil seems to fix, but problem occurs after only miniutes of sewing.

    Loops under the material as well, and no matter what I do to the tension, nothing works. Again, good clean up and rebuild. A real pain doing this after every 10 miniutes of sewing. How do you stop it happening. I have spent more time fixing the machine than I have using it.

Tangled thread on wrong side of fabric


Refer to the maintenance section of the manual for the machine and clean as instructed to make sure the bobbin area and shuttle are free of lint and thread tangles.

Re-thread the machine with the presser foot up and see if this doesn't stop the problem.

Thread jams in bobbin case


Open the bobbin area and make sure it is clean.

Change to a new needle.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up.

Make sure the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guide on the bobbin case.

Take hold of the end of the top thread and lower, then raise the needle to pull the bobbin thread up.

Take hold of both thead ends and pull them under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Place fabric under the presser foot. Lower and hand walk the first couple of stitches.

When sewing, and you need to stop to adjust the fabric, make sure the needle is down into the fabric. This will keep the stitch from malformation and causing a possible tangle.

If you need a manual, you can download one free at the Brother website.

Needle's thread gets tangled in bobbin


First, open the needle plate and make sure the bobbin area is clean and free of lint and thread.

Check the needle to make sure it is not bent and is properly inserted into the holder - usually with the flat side facing to the back of the machine.

Refer to your manual for bobbin insertion to be sure the thread is feeding from the bobbin in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up. This opens the tension control and allows the thread to properly enter.

When the foot is down, the tension control closes to the sewing setting and if the thread is not in place, there is no tension on the thread and it gets loopy.

After threading, lower and raise the needle while holding onto the thread tail. This will pull the bobbin thread up through the needle plate. Take hold of both threads and take them under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Hand walk the first stitch when sewing and this should keep the top and bottom thread from tangling.

When stopping to change the position of the fabric (turning a corner, sewing a curved seam for example), do so with the needle down into the fabric. This not only anchors the fabric so it does not slip, but prevents mis-stitching.

If you are doing everything according to the manual and are still having a problem, the machine may need to be professionally serviced.
