    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!

After hearing a noise and oiling the machine the bobbin thread becomes tangled up inside the bobbin houseing unit


Check the tension setting on the bobbin case. If it is too loose, the thread can spool out too fast/ Use good quality thread. Ensure the thread path has bee followed correctly.
Good luck

The upper thread is too loose and the bobbin thread is taken up too much


It is the upper thread which pulls the bobbin thread up. If the bobbin thread is taken up to much, one solution is to loosen the upper thread -- but the upper thread is too loose. Therefore, the same problem needs to be combated from the bobbin side.
The thread from the bobbin should slide through a wedge. On that wedge should be a screw. It needs tightened. The bobbin thread should be tight as follows:
A fully loaded bobbin should tangle by the thread without falling. While dangling the bobbin by the thread, bounce the bobbin (yo-yo style). An easy tug should cause the bobbin to release an inch or two of thread and then the bobbin should stop falling on its own.
Once the bobbin tensioner is correct, you should be able to tighten the upper tensioner.

How do i put threed into the bobbin and keep it from not getting tangled?


Is it getting tangled while you're spooling the bobbin on the top right corner of the Singer 1507 machine? If this is the case, you have to pull the thread through the top tiny hole in the bobbin, and hold on to the thread end. Then click the bobbin to the right to lock it in place, power up your machine. Keep holding the thread as you begin spooling the bobbin. Let go of the thread once the bobbin starts to spin a few rounds and the thread should not get tangled.

Thread tangled in the bobine


I had this same problem yesterday. I took apart the needle tension casing and now it doesn't get tangled or stop. The only thing is the bobbin is not sewing...it looks fine on the top, but the bottom is just loose loops.

My sewing machine keeps getting jammed when sewing. the top stitch keeps getting tangled in with the bobbin thread and jamming up the machine.


Hello,
Here are a couple of things to try.

* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your
bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.

* Change your bobbin
There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you
sew.

* When you start to sew a seam, grasp the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back
and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting
caught in your machine.

I hope this helps.

On my old Singer 834, the bobbin thread puts out


Are you sure the bobbin thread is in the case correct. it also as tension support.Or is the bobbin thread right . When you make your bobbins that also should have tension.
