Thread is getting bunched up in machine


First thing: install a brand new needle.
Second: remove upper thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Set upper tension to the midway point between high & low numbers.

Bobbin thread bunching on singer sewing machine...have changed needle and tensions! Help


Try a ball point 11/70 or stretch 11/70 needle. Also rethread the entire machine. Make sure the needle is inserted correctly in the sewing machine. I had this same thing happen to me recently and I found I had the needle backwards.

My machine needs the tension adjusted, i believe...because while i am sewing the thread bunches underneath the fabric that i am sewing. help? *my needle is sharp *my thread is new


You have not got is threaded on top right. Do this test, rethread your machine with the presser foot up, pull thread, it should move smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull thread, it should barely move. This seats the thread in the tension discs. See if that works.

The thread is looping and bunching up under the fabric. I have the tension set to 5 and I have rethread the thread. What do I try now?


It is a problem in your top threading, you may have tangled thread, or need a new needle. Try this test when you have rethreaded with the presser foot up, pull thread, it should feed smoothly, now lower presser foot, pull thread, it should barely move. This will seat your thread in the tension discs and hopefully you will have no more problems

Singer 5050 sewing machine threads gathering under fabric and becoming knotted. how do i fix this


Try a new needle and rethreading. Check your threading by putting the presser foot up , then pull thead, should move smoothly, now put presser foot down, now pull, it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs.

I have a singer simple and within only seconds of sewing, the bottom thread will have bunched up 10 times of the amount of thread I would have thought I even used on the bottom side of the fabric


It is in your top threading. Rethread, and with the presser foot up, pull the top thread, it should feed smoothly, now put the presser foot down, the thread should barely move. This should seat the thread in the tension discs. Good luck

The underside of the fabric is not stitching proerly. I think this isa problem with the bobbin. I have tired many times but it doesn't seem to be working. Please help!


Try this, rethread your machine, insert a new needle, now with the presser foot up, pull the top thread, it should pull smoothly, now with the presser foot down, pull the thread again, it should barely move. This sometimes seats the thread through the tension discs. I know it seems crazy but when the thread bunches up underneath, it is the top thread causing the problem. Hope this gets you going again.

THREAD GET BUNCHED UP UNDERNEATH THE FABRIC, THE STICHES SEEM TO BE INCOMPLETE THE TOP LOOKS GOOD THAN I TURN IT OVER AND THE THEAD IS BUNCHED AND LONG LOOPS OF THREAD ARE LEFT. THANKS LOU


Hi Lou! This sounds like a tension problem--the tension on the top thread is too loose. Try using different color threads on the top and bobbin, then carefully rethread everything. Stitch a couple of inches and check the underside. If the top stitches look fine and the bottom ones are loose and loopy, and with the pressure foot down, tighten the tension. Move the knob or dial (whichever you have) just a little bit. Sew a couple of inches more, and recheck. Continue to sew and recheck, gradually tightening the tension, until you see little if any bobbin thread on the top or top thread on the underside of the fabric.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Keeps "birdnesting", besides rethreading, how do I fix?


when you have bunching on the bottom, you have a problem with the top thread: no tension. (and visa versa) Make sure the thread runs through the tension discs, these discs are activated when you put the presser foot down, so you want to thread the machine with the foot up, also feel if there no burrs, hooks, or whatever, so your top thread comes smooth off the spool, no jerking.
