Locks On Top AND Loops On Bottom

Please help!! My machine worked fine for about a week and now it will not sew correctly. I changed out the thread and it hasn't worked right since. The top of the fabric looks like the lacing on a football, and the bottom of the fabric has huge loops. I run a small home-based business sewing baby bibs and my orders are getting backed up. Please help me!!!

Sounds to me like your tension is out. or your machine is not threaded right.

Top stitch is fine bottom is loose. Have tried adjusting tension but not working. If I get tension too tight breaks thread so I gradually change tension to no avail. Please help


Check your stitch sample. The loose stitches under the fabric--are they actually top thread???? Usually,stitch problems under the fabric is a result of a top thread problem. In this case, it could be bird nesting.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
Install a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot.
Rethread from the beginning.

The thread for the top needle just sews and loops onto the lower thread


I think you are saying that there is a loop showing on the bottom of the lower thread stitch. If the lower stitch looks correct and not bunching, you will need to change the tension on the upper stitch. Make sure that your threads are firmly inserted within the discs also before adjusting the tension. It doesn't take much to change the tension so take it slowly.

New Home ss2015 machine. I am having trouble with the thread tension. I have loops on the bottom. I have cleaned the bobbin case, changed the needle, re-threaded and moved the upper tension all the way up....


try adjusting the top tension to 3 & if it doesn't stop the looping, try 4 but I wouldn't go any higher than 5,, if changing the top tension doesn't help then I suggest taking the machine in to have it serviced. the bottom tension is more difficult to do,, it's also very possible that the top tension dial is messed up & needs replacing. only a sewing machine shop can tell for sure.

The wrong loops are on the surface of the material that I've sewn


Loops on the top of the fabric are usually caused by the bobbin thread not in the bobbin case tension correctly, remove the bobbin and reinstall it. You should feel a slight resistance when you pull on the bobbin thread.

Have you tried to re-thread the machine? Check to see if the thread is in the take-up lever. There also might be a piece of thread or lint caught between the top tension disks.

The bottom thread gets all knotted up when I sew... everything locks up and there is a mess of thread on the underside of what I'm trying to sew. help?


The tension in the top thread is controlled by a dial, and the tension in the bottom thread is controlled by a small screw on a spring on the bobbin. The tensions are supposed to be exactly equal in order to make the stitch perfectly in the middle of the cloth. Uneven tension will pull the stitch up or down from there. You can tug on each thread to feel how much tension there is. Often the bottom will get too much tension by just inserting the bobbin upside down. Leave the bobbin door open, and watch the operation. The top thread is pulled down around the bobbin. See if it is getting caught on anything?

When i use sewing cloth in backside the thread will too loose then i use tension tight it correct in 8 number but manual book says 4 or 5 is correct wat can i do help me


Unthread your machine and set the tension to 4.5. rethread your machine up to the needle and then put the presser foot down. If the thread pulls hard, your machine is threaded right if it pulls easily, the thread is not thru the tension wheel correctly.

Rule of thumb:: loops on the top, problem on the bottom.
loops on the bottom, problem on the top.

Thread getting caught in machine underneath


Try rethreading the top of the machine making sure you get it thru the tension wheel correctly.. General rule of thumb.
If it loops on the bottom, the problem in on the top.. Loops on the top, problem is with the bobbin.

Big loops on bottom stitch


You have no top tension. Rethread the top of the machine. Make shure you raise the presserfoot before threading.
