Top thread will not move when presser foot is down

When the presser foot is up the thread will move smoothly, when the presser foot is down, the thread will not move at all. It is not caught up on the spool.

This machine has a tension roller system that meters out thread when the machine is running. When stopped it is locked up so you won't be able to pull thread thru with the foot down.
Hope this helps.

The bobbin thread is very loose when sewing.


Pay attention to your threading of the top of your machine, with the presser foot up, thread your machine, now pull the thread, it should feed smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull thread and it should barely move. This will seat the thread in the tension discs,

Sewing on top is fine but bottom bobbin keeps sewing messy on the underside domesco sewing machine how do i fix?


It is in your top threading, it is not threaded right. Make sure that there is no tangles in your thread, no bent needle. Check your threading by, presser foot up, pull thread, it should move smoothly, put presser foot down and pull thread again, now it should hardly move. This will seat the thread in the tension discs.

When sewing thread is gathering up under the bobbin.


It means that the top threading is not right. Insert a new needle ,flat side facing away from you, totally rethread, with the presser foot up. Now with the presser foot still up, pull your thread, it should feed smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull thread again, it should barely move. This should seat your thread in the tension discs. Good luck

Kenmore 148 bobbin thread ends up a snarl under the cloth. Seems like thread is not coming off bobbin smoothly or measured, ending up with tangle and stopping.


Usually it is your top threading or your needle needs to be changed. Rethread paying close attention that the thread is in the tension discs right. Try with presser foot up, pull thread, it should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down, it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs.

When I thread my machine and start sewing my bobbin thread gets a huge nest underneath and knots underneath my fabric. What am I doing wrong?


It is your top threading, totally rethread, then with presser foot up, pull on top thread, it should feed smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull thread, it should barely move. This should seat the thread in the tension discs.

It doesn't stitch properly..........the stitch is very loose.


I would try, cleaning and lubricating, a new needle, totally rethreading with good thread, test your threading with the presser foot up, pull top thread, should move smoothly, now put the presser foot down, it should barely move. (this sometimes reseats the thread in the tension discs).

I cannot seem to get the top thread of my machine to pull smoothly through the tension disks. The machine was bought as JCPenney 25 years ago, no name brand-- Thank you!


Are you trying to pull the thread when the presser foot is up or down. Try this, rethread, then with the presser foot up, pull the thread it should feed smoothly, Now put the presser foot down, now the thread should barely move. Sometimes this seats the thread in the tension discs. Also, check your top tension control, I use 3 and maybe that will help you. Is your bobbin threaded right? Hopefully, this will help

My thread keeps getting caught on the bobbin case, and is causing my thread to bunch up under the fabrick and jam?


Thread under the fabric is usually caused by improper top threading. Try this test, with presser foot up, pull on thread, it should feed smoothly. Now, put the presser foot down, it should barely move when pulled. Also, try a new needle.

When I start to stitch it just makes a big mess of knots


It is usually your top threading. Try this test, with the presser foot up, pull your top thread, it should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull top thread, it should barely move. Sometimes, just doing that seats the thread into the tension discs. Hopefully, it will help you. Another thing, make sure that you use good thread, and try a new needle also.
