Why does the bottom tread come out loose and loopy


First, check the stitching to verify that it is in fact the bobbin thread that is loose & loopy. Usually, loopy thread under the fabric is the upper thread--which, if that is the case, is an indication it is either threaded incorrectly or the upper tension is too loose.

Make sure you are using a brand-new needle.
Always RAISE the presser foot and then thread the upper thread making sure that every guide and the correct path is followed.

Set the upper tension to the midway point between high & low number and re-test the stitching. Re-adjust as needed. The tension is correct when both upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Understanding Thread Tension Threads

If it is in fact the bobbin thread causing looping, it could be that the bobbin case is not threaded properly or the tension is way off.

Correct bobbin size for a Necchi Omega 6030


You can use either 16 or 16J. If your threads are loopy on the bottom side of fabric, the problem is either your needle thread tension is too loose or you have a snag in your needle plate where you have broken a needle. Check needle plate and clear snag if any. Then tighten up your needle thread tension until both needle and bobbin threads are in middle of fabric.

Whta is the answer to the curvy's thread/bobbin problems. super infuriating


If by "bobbin thread is usually too loose." you mean that you are seeing loopy stuff on top of your seam... then first you need to make sure your bobbin is un-spooling in the correct direction.

Also make sure that the tension spring on your bobbin case is not missing it's screw. Don't mess with the tension there yet... loosen your top tension first... sew on scrap fabric of the same type as your project. Loosen the top tension until you stop seeing loops on top of your seam. If you have loosened it enough to see loops on the bottom... tighten it a bit.

If all else fails make sure you re-thread the top thread with the pressure foot up position so you make sure you are getting the top thread in the tension discs and try test sewing again.

Brother cs-6000 will not sew, the top thread go through and tangles on back, and the bobbin thread is a straight line and can be easily pulled out, please help, trying to make kids school clothes


Hi:

Ok... so try to remember that loopy stuff on top means the bobbin tension is too loose (or the top tension is too tight...)

Loopy stuff on bottom, means the top tension is too loose. (or it's not threaded right)

Now. Get some scrap of the same material. Loosen that bobbin back to where it was. RETHREAD the top, with the foot in the UP position.

Place your scrap under the foot, and sew. still have problem? clip your threads and try again only this time hold the top and bottom threads off to the side as you begin to sew. How did that do?

Adjust the top tension to the point where you start seeing the bobbin thread come up in loops to the top... then back off until the disappear.

Now... be sure you have the correct thread and needle for your fabric. A lot of problem are caused by not having the proper needle and thread.

Tension problem


Set the top tension as recommended by the mfg - this is usually between 3 - 6.

Now re-thread the machine with the presser foot up and see if this doesn't eliminated the loopy stitches.

What appears to be an issue with the bobbin may actually be the top thread was not seated into the tension during threading and the tension cannot control the flow of thread to the needle and you get a loopy stitch.

Keep the bobbin case clean as built-up lint can cause stitching problems.

Singer 5430C bobbins thread always loopy


"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

Loose, loopy, understitching.


Generally caused by lack of tension on the upper thread. Thread machine normally and pull the needle thread sideways from the needle with the presser foot up. It should pull smoothly. Lower the presser foot and it should become hard to pull and the needle will bend. If this doesn't happen, the upper thread is not in the tension assembly and you should rethread properly. Also, make sure thread is in the take up lever that moves up and down on the front of the machine while sewing.

I have a Singer Inspiration 4220 Sewing Machine. I was working on a quilting project last night, and everything was going fine, until I noticed that the thread on the underside of the fabric was very loose...


It's possible that there is foreign debris in the top tension assembly ,thread the machine and lower the presser foot and ensure that there is tension on the top thread
