    I have a singer 5050C and I have a problem with the bobbin thread making loops in the back. There doesn't seem to be anything stuck in the tension disk, so I don't know what to do.

    I can't quite follow the directions in the response as I am a novice in the sewing world but I do have the exact same problem with loose bobbin thread on fleece that I am sewing together.

Similar issue, except my problem is that the thread is balled up and loose, and I can pull out the bobbin thread that is supposed to be sewn in like it's not in time with the machine thread

Check your tension disks, with your presser foot up, and the tension dial on zero. Sometimes a piece of cotton breaks off between the tension disks and then prevents the disks to work properly. Also make sure when you thread the machine, the thread does go through the disks and over the take up lever. After you threaded the machine, before putting the thread through the eye of the needle, lower the presser foot and while pulling on the thread with your left hand, increase the tension with your right hand. Do it slowly and you should feel in difference in tension. If this is the case, your machine should work fine. Also use a ball-point needle on t shirt material. Good luck!

Ruffler foot bobbin tangles


I suspect that the bobbin thread you are talking about is in fact the top thread that has been pulled under the material, make sure that the top thread is pulled into the tention discs firmly and that there is no fuzz in with the thread, also make sure the top thread is properly threaded and is actually in the take up bar .

It wont stitch tee/shirt material it misses stitchs


If machine misses stitches consistently, it can be several things.
Needle not installed correctly, not threaded correctly, Bobbin case not installed correctly, make sure the bobbin itself is inserted correctly and spinning in the correct direction.
Finally, machine may need service the timing is off. All actions of a sewing machine are carefully "timed" to form a stitch while sewing. Sewing things that were too heavy for the machine or you hit the bobbin case while sewing can knock the machine out of adjustment.
Let a professional do the maintenance on your machine. Some may opt to show you how to do more in depth maintenance yourself at home.
Cheers,

Amatur Sewer?threads tangled below


Stop sewing! You need to adjust your tension. Your book will explain exactly how to do this. If you can't find your book, try setting the tensions to the same number. If your tension adjustments have a mark at a certain number, use that setting for most materials. If not, try setting it to about 3.

To test your settings, thread your bobbin with a different color, then do a test stitch. Check the top and bottom stitches for a spot of the other color thread showing through. If the bobbin thread shows in the top, raise the bobbin tension setting a bit and try it again.

Hope this FixesYa!

Euro pro 385w problems


if your machine is like mine the bobbin is not filling right. My bobbin thread is very loose when it should be tight. I am also looking for bobbin solutions. If I wind the thread around the thread tension guide 2 or three times it keeps the thread tight going to the bobbin winder. I hope this helps

Upper thread getting tangled in the bobbin


Always remember T-N-T. Thread, Needle, Tension. Assuming its threaded properly, is the needle all the way in and facing the right direction? These symptoms also suggest the bobbin may be in the bobbincase upside down thus turning in the wrong direction. Hope this helps.
