All seems fine & threded correctly but will not stitch [knot]


from your description I guess that the knot is under the material
If so then the top thread is too loose
tighten it up a fair bit and use scrap material until you get it right

I have a singer 500/550 .I'm trying too sew a straight stitch ,but I'm having trouble with the tension. What's the best setting? And i can't sew with needle in the middle position. Why


500/550? wow, that an old one. have you check your timing? or the bevel gears?
what type of problems are you having with the sewing. is the thread knotting up on the back side of the fabric? is the thread just breaking? or is it just missing stitches? does the needle hit the bobbin case?
I have a 600 series and I found that if i put the tension around 2 or 3 it sews the best.
too tight the tread breaks, too lose the thread knots up on the back.
I had to change out the bevel gears and have the machine re-time to stop the miss-stitching.
also may want to check your bobbin tension.

White 3100 just knots in stitching


when you say knotting, do you mean a snarl up of looped thread on the underside. If so check top thread tension

My stitch does not sew on right side of fabric. I sew & see the underside of the stitch. I remove the fabric & the stitch is on the underside.... Never known sewing machine to do this. Help!!


Hi. first thing is to remove the threads from the machine, top thread and the bobbin, and replace to manufactures instructions. If still the same the problem sounds as if there is no tension on the bobbin [under] thread, adjust to a light tension. Then adjust top thread tension until the knot is in the middle of the cloth. Most times people keep tightening the top tension..

Bunches of threads on the bottom


Try threading the machine with the presser foot up.

This opens the tension and allows the thread to seat into the tension control.

When the thread is not properly seated, there isn't any tension on the top thread the bobbin thread cannot make a proper stitch with a top thead that is loosey-goosey.

The thresd gets knotted and it won't stitch


Rethread your machine
Make sure your cotton runs through the two tension plates
Check that your top tension is set on 5
Make sure your bobbin case is threaded correctly
Lastly, make sure there is no cotton stuck between your top tension's plates(take a long needle and remove any fluff)

Sudden knotting under fabric


I have an Elna 2005 machine and had a similar but opposite problem whereby the tension up top was too tight - thread wouldn't pull smoothly. I found adjusting the feed dog lever slightly helped the stitches a lot, even though the needle tension up top is no better. Hope that helps! :-s
