Try using a new needle--make sure it's the right one for the fabric
your sewing
try rethreading the machine top and bobbin
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
check to see the thread has come off the thread take up lever
check with brother customer service about oiling the machine

SOURCE: Birds nest

Check the tension on both the upper and lower threads is similar. It sounds like the thread on the lower spool is under tensioned. On most machines the tension is increased by a small screw on the spool.

Bobbin thread is gathering up under Neath


Sounds like birds nest or thread nests. HINT: When threading the top thread, ALWAYS have the presser foot in the RAISED position.

When I sew I have thread bunching up underneath the fabric, I've changed needle size, thread, bobbins and cleaned out around the bobbin holder. I'm frustrated and out of ideas.


Susan--
Easy peasy, once you know the problem and how to fix it. It's called "bird nesting" or "thread nesting" or what I refer to as thread "barfs."

Install a brand new needle.
Remove all the thread from the machine.
**ALWAYS RAISE** the presser foot and rethread the top thread.
Verify the top thread path is correct.
Install and thread the bobbin case, make sure it is correct.
Set the top tension to the midway point.

Now retest your machine. Birds nests gone? You may need to tweak the top tension because the factory standard changes due to age and use.

FWIW, problems appearing under the fabric are an issue of the top thread. Thread problems appearing on top of the fabric is a bobbin issue.

Phaff 1472 stitches are bunching up underneath


That is thread nesting or bird nesting. Could be the result of several things, but main reasons are upper tension too loose and the thread not being completely seated in the tension disk.

How do I get rid of bird nests that keep happening when I attemp to sew?


There are some very basic things to do.

Install a brand new needle.

Remove the thread from the machine.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and then rethread the upper thread. Confirm it is following the correct thread path. (Bird nests occur usually because the thread is not seated completely in the tension disk or the machine is threaded improperly.)

Verify the bobbin is installed in the bobbin case facing the proper direction and that the bobbin case is threaded properly.

Set the upper tension to the midway point (the factory standard), although this may need to be tweaked as machines change over time and use.

Pull the bobbin thread to the top and hold the thread tails. (This works for general sewing, not just quilting.)
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

Slowly begin to test sew.

If it continues to create bird nests, then your machine may have a timing issue. Take it for service.

The thread and bobbin are nesting up in the bobbin case


Two things I have found that make my singer ce-200 nest. 1st. When I change threads, sometimes I thread it wrong - always nests when I do that. 2nd. When the bobbin runs out of thread it always nests for me, so I have to check the bobbin often. And I remembered a 3rd thing. 3rd. The area for the bobbin & bobbin casing has to be clean, no pieces of threads, and the bobbin casing itself can move, so make sure it's seated correctly.Whenever I get nesting, I take the metal cover off, under the needle, to get in and clean the bobbin area and under the needle good, before I go back to embroidering.
