My problem is with the bobin. The machine worked well two days ago. Now when I try to sew , the bobin thread is becoming caught in the lower area and produces tension that stops the machine after about two...


With out looking at the machine it is hard to determine the exact problem, but make sure your bobbin thread is placed in the bobbine case corretly, and pulled through the little tension area on the bobbin case.

Next make sure the upper thread is in the tension discs, if not this can also cause you a problem, plus if possible used a little canned air (with the pressure foot up, machine unplugged and thread removed) blow out the tension area.

Good luck.

Sewing with heavy thread, what should the tension be set on?


hi there
the tension depends on thikness of material but you must use heavy thread on needle and thin thread on bobin case .
- you must be sew fiew stitches firist and look if losse stitch from down you must tight tension slowly sloly and if there is losse stitches from upper you must tight screw for bobin case spring slowly slowly until stitch format be agood condation.

My bobin thread gets tangled and loose


have you checked the tension? In the older machines you could adjust the thread tension by tightening the screw on the side of the bobin case. With alot of the newer machines you have to lift out the bobbin and then lift out the casing to adjust the screw on the underside of the casing.

How to stop bobin thread from knotting


When loading the bobbin there is most likely not enough tension on the thread letting it overlap incorrectly. Try wrapping thread around a tensioner when filling and that should help. That way the bobbin is rolled as tight as the tension on the upper thread when sewing.

How do I tighten the tension on the bobin thread I am quitiing with invisible thread on the top and dark blue on the bottom, the bobin thread shows. I don't want that


you can either increase the bottom tension or reduce the top tension .. you will notice a little screw on the bobin case ... that screw adjusts the force on a small flat spring which provides the bottom tension (the thread goes under the spring when properly threaded) .. .. tighten that screw a little to increase bottom tension .. you can pull thread thru the bobin case to get a feel for how much tension you have ... you dont have to turn the screw very far to make a significant difference .. try just 1/4 of a turn at a time .. remember where it was originally set so you can put it back when you are finished with your present project .. the greater the bottom tension the less bobin thread will show at the top ... if you get the tension too high then you might see some puckering as you sew ..

Thred keeps braking


It might be tension to tight, threaded wrong or the bobin isn't thread the right way.

Lower thread tension is too loose but no adjustment seems to work


From your description it appears that you have tried tension settings on the upper tension control adjustment knob without success.
Check that the bobin tension is adjusted correctly by taking out the bobin complete with the spool.
Pull the cotton thread and it should be a smooth light pressure if the tension is correct. If it is tight to pull or pulls freely then adjust the tension screw which is found on the outside of the bobbin. The screw is very small and requires a minature size screwdriver. The adjustment will only be a slight turn of the screw one way or the other to obtain the correct tension(depending if it was loose or tight).
Once this is set reinstall the bobin and tread up the machine, hopefully with the upper tension set at approx."2" the machine will sew correctly.

Thread bunches from the bottom while sewing.


Hello, sewing is a part of my income and I've encountered this problem before and managed to fix it on my own, by trying out these different things. I re-threaded the machine and checked to make sure that the tension is not too loose. Check the bobin and the sack the bobin fits into, sometimes it comes loose too, click it back into place and re-do the bobin. adjust the tightness of the stiitches, I usually put it on 2 .5 - 3. Hope this helps. Good luck to all. Nefishakh@hotmail.com

My sewing machine is not pulling the stitches tight. It has something to do with were the bobin is.


When you have seeewen and you have a mess on the back, take a pair of tweezers and pull on the threads on the top, is there a lot of slack, if so your top tension is loose, even though it is on the bobbin side if it is tight then the bobbin tension needs adjusting (usually a small screw on the side of the case) and just barely turn the screw about a quarter turn until it's sewing the top tension is a screw like looking thing usally right above the needle
