    my bobbin tension seems off but I am installing the bobbin as I always do.

    I have the same issue with my machine, I'm about ready to toss this peice of **** out the window. I have had the same problem for years. Thread keeps bunching up, winding around the bobbin. Ruining my garmets. Something must be defective in this machine because we are all having the same issue. NOW, what do i do to fix this problem ???

    Sometimes it works other times like now.... it doesn't.......

The impulse is to blame the bobbin, because that's where the thread bunches. But the problem is probably with the top thread tension. The tension is too loose, allowing the bobbin to help itself to all the thread it wants. Retrace the path of the thread from spool to needle and see if you missed anything. The instructions in my VX1005 manual are not clear. I had to try a couple of paths before I got it right. Make sure the spring in the tension disk setup is moving freely. You should feel a fair amount of resistance when you pull on the needle thread. Hope this helps.

Thread on my consew 225 keeps balling the thread on the bottbottom


Sounds like bird nesting. The upper thread accumulates under the fabric creating a series of loops and knots.

First: Install a brand new needle and make sure it is installed facing the correct direction. (A new needle is the least expensive fix for most sewing machine issues.)

Second: Remove the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Make sure it is threaded correctly (consult the owner's manual).

Third: Pull up the bobbin thread through the fabric and gently hold the thread tails in your left hand while slowly taking the first couple of stitches.

Top thread is bunching underneath


bunching underneath is an indication that the top tension is incorrect
switching projects and materials also that attention has to be given to tension adjustment both bottom and top
the catching sometimes indicates that a tension is too tight and is pulling the needle out of line

Difficulty threading bobbin- thread bunches under fabric. vx1005


I would suggest to check the needle to see if it's damaged
also check to make sure the machine is threaded correctly,,that the thread is in every thread guide
also some sewing machine have a problem with the top thread coming off the thread take up lever
also I would check the bobbin area for lint or any loose threads
also check the top thread tension to see if it's set correctly
also the hook race cover & hook need to be taken out & cleaned & then put back in
some machine have had problems with the hook getting grooves worn into them & need to be fixed or replaced

The tension is off ?? bottom thread bunches


Sounds like it could be! Probably worth trying to readjust it. Are you using a fine fabric too? That can cause bunching.

How do you thread bobbin for Bicor VX1005?


Look through these threading guides for a Brother that has the same features. http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Threading_Diagrams.htm

The above site has a manual, but I not a threading guide. Unless it is the same as another model.

Bicor vx1005 ...thread keeps bunching


Try a different bobbin. Look for one that is a little narrower. I had the same problem and changing to a narrower bobbin fixed it.
