    I tried messing with the bobbin and then took it back to the store. They couldn't fix it either and sent it in for repair.

This can be caused by incorrect bobbin tension or the bobbin is in backwards. Take out the bobbin and put it in according to the instructions for your Singer. If you still have the same problem try tightening the bobbin tension. Please ask if you have any questions.

After some major fiddling that all the "birdnesting" underneath is actually the top thread. Make sure you thread it in the machine under tension and hear a click as your bringing it down and out of the "arm". I also had a problem with the bobbin popping out. I remedied that by unscrewing the black plate (with provided screw driver) and moved it to the left just a tiny bit. Now the bobbin is more secure and still seems to be working properly...for now...

My bobbin isn't sewing correctly


If the bobbin stitches look out of whack, your machine is probably threaded incorrectly. rethread with the presser foot up and see if this fixes the problem.

Ruffler foot bobbin tangles


I suspect that the bobbin thread you are talking about is in fact the top thread that has been pulled under the material, make sure that the top thread is pulled into the tention discs firmly and that there is no fuzz in with the thread, also make sure the top thread is properly threaded and is actually in the take up bar .

My machine is a Singer Inspiration 4210. My stitch on top looks fine at first glance but it is birdnesting underneath. What should I do to correct this?


Check your top tension. It sounds like it may be too loose or the bobbin tension may be way too tight. Most likely it is the top tension that is incorrect though. The TOP tension effects the bottom side of the stitch and the bottom tension effects the top. If the top tension isn't tight enough it won't draw the thread up through the top side taunt enough and the excess underneath makes a big loopy mess.

My sewing machine doesn't work properly.. after setting everything up it give the first stitch but then it doesn't stitch anymore... and I have what you call a bird-nest under my fabric.. don't know what...


I think that you are not threading it right, try this, totally rethread, now pull on the top thread with the presser foot up, it should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull top thread again, now it should barely move. This should seat your thread in the tension discs. I would also insert a new needle. (flat side facing the rear of the machine) If, you do not have your manual go to www.singerco.com and down load one for free, plus you can enlarge the diagrams for easy reading. It is not a bad idea to save a copy to you computer, in case you misplace the paper copy. Singer customer service is very helpful, at 1-800-4singer. Good luck, I hope that you can get some happy hours sewing.

The straight stitch looks fine on top, but underneath it's all tangled and looks horrible. And the thread gets tangled beneath the bobbin and "E6" appears very often when I am sewing. It is very...


do you have the foot down? if not your getting whats called a birdsnest just put the foot down and then press on the peddal and then there should be no more knots ( by foot I mean the metal part that goes over your material and the needle goes through)

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.

The top tension pulls the top thread up. The bobbin tension pulls the bottom thread down. A balanced tension is an an even knot between the stitches.

If the thread is messy on the bottom, the top tension is non-existent or is too low. The top thread tension dial should be on 4 or 5. Pull the thread out and re-thread the machine with the presser foot up. If it is still messy, perhaps there is a burr on the bobbin case snagging the thread.

Try oiling the hook if you haven't recently.
Check you needle plate and hook for damage, they may need to be buffed or sanded smooth.
Check your upper tension discs for lint and double check your upper thread path (proper threading).
There are other things like hook timing, needle clearance or broken check spring that may be wrong but you need a technician for those things.
best of luck!

Thread stitching under material instead of on top, what to do


Frist make sure that the bobbin is in correctly I know it sounds silly but check I have at least 2 machines a week or more come in and this is all that is wrong with them. if that is ok then check the bobbin case the black thing the bobbin sets in and see if it is nicked or damaged that is what normally causes this problem
