That can be caused by a few things.

1. Bobbin un-spooling in the wrong direction. (when you hold the bobbin and tug the thread it should spin the bobbin to the left)

2. The needle isn't fully inserted, is bent, or not correctly oriented.

3. The machine is not timed correctly.

Good luck

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread breaks

Make sure your bobbin thread is turning clockwise as it sits in the bobbin case. There is a screw on the outside of the bobbin case you can turn with your thumb slightly to adjust tension. If you dangle the case from the thread and give it a light ****, it should move down slightly when doing so-an indicator of good bobbin tension.

I had the same problem. I'm a novice sewer. I just bought my machine. It did the samething, tension didn't work, the thread kept knotting up underneath, and the fabric kept curling up in the back.

I adjusted the tension knobs to no avail. Then it kept bothering me that it was curling up. I then decided to set the dials back to where the factory had them and adjusted the presser foot just a hair counterclockwise and I haven't had anymore problems.

The other day the needle almost broke because the tension was tight on the thread. You have to make sure that the needle is at it's highest point to get it to release the fabric so you have a thread tail.

This is my first purchased machine. I had a New Home years ago that was given to me, however it blew away in the tornado of 1991 in Kansas and I never replaced it. I really do love this machine. I don't believe I will ever want another.

My wife is frustrated with her sewing machine and just threw the material down in disgust...there seems to be a problem with the tension or something like that. She cant get a simple stitch without the...


I have a simple and I have better luck when I use a SA156 metal bobbin. Another thing, has she watched the cd that came with the machine? This machine is a little touchy as far as threading goes, I have been sewing 50+ years. Usually, it is in the top threading that causes the problem. If, she has a question, she should call Singer at 1-800-4singer and they will walk her through all of the threading and other troubleshooting strategies. Good luck. Hope this helps you.

Bobbin thread will not stitch.


Have you had the machine serviced since you purchased it? This is something that should be done at least once a year.

Take the machine to a certified Singer dealer and explain what is happening. There may or may not be something that needs to be adjusted.

Your warranty is still in effect, but is now limited. Attempting to repair it yourself or having someone who is not a Singer dealer repair it will invalidate the remaining warranty.

Bobbin thread showing on top, automatic tension


It is possible the jam threw off the timing and this will need to be fixed by a sewing machine tech.

Try one more thing first. Lift the presser foot - this will open the tension control so the thread can properly seat into the control.

Re-thread the machine.

If this does not help, back to suggestion # 1.

Bobbin area will not work


There should be a spinning cover with a hook that fits over the bobbin. Normally, you just pull the bobbin thread out through the swinging/sliding plate hole. Turn the machine by hand toward you (at the top) until the needle dives into and comes back with both threads. Separate the threads and assuming that the thread tension above the needle is set correctly, feed a piece of material in to see if it sews correctly. The tension is set so that the thread is even on both sides of the material. Let the machine pull the material through at it's own pace, your function is to guide the material.
