Your Top tension is too tight. Loosen it.

SOURCE: Designer 1 Embroidery Bobbin problem

Designer 1 bobbin case tension adjustment:
When the bobbin runs out, sometimes it bends the bobbin case tension spring. Then tension is too light. Take the bobbin case out of the machine. Tie the loose bobbin thread to the Designer 1 needle plate. Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case. Here’s the tricky part set the bobbin case on the table as if it’s in the machine (Bobbin is visible and sitting horizontal to table top) threaded as if sewing and loose end tied to needle plate (that is removed from the machine). Lift the bobbin case off the table rotate it so that the flat side of the bobbin are vertical to the table and no longer horizontal. Have the bobbin case oriented so that the thread coming out of the bobbin case sprint (slot area where it is put for sewing) is at the top. Lift it high enough that the needle plate is lifted from the table. It should not release thread unless you shake it gently and then a very small amount of thread. The needle plate is the exact weight resistance your bobbin case should have on the thread.

Have you checked the top thread is correctly placed in the spring of the bobbin case?

I have changed stabalizers and the type of bobbin thread i am using (invisible poly) and it seemd to have solved the problem. Note: wind invisible thread very slowly and carefully it is like fishing line

SOURCE: the top thread gets bunched up in the bobbin and

make sure you have threaded it correctly, always thread with the presser foot lever down, when the foot is up there is no pressure on the tension unit. wait for the click from the tension unit as you put the thread through it. Also make sure you have taken the thread up to the tension take up lever (the lever that goes up and down as th machine runs)

SOURCE: top thread will not pick up bobbin thread makes a big loopy mess

This is sometimes caused by the upper thread not threaded correctly. You need to thread it first with the pressure foot in the up position. You need to "floss" the thread into the clear plastic guide as this is where the tension is. The tension should be set to E for embroidering. Also make sure you get the bobbin thread in the slot on the bobbin case. Also, lower your pressure foot before you begin embroidering. Hope this helps!

I purchased designer 1with usb. I downloaded a design for first time (I purchased premier + the original owner lost the original dongle) in stitching the design the bobbin thread is comingto the top.


That is just a tension issue or you have the machine incorrectly threaded. Increasing the tension will pull the thread down into the material. You also need to make sure your bobbin tension is correct. This article explains very well.

How do I turn off thread portioning on Husqvarna Ruby De Luxe. I don't want to adjust the settings but need to turn this off. Thank you


FWIW, I was unable to find any information for turning off the thread portioning function. Unfortunately, this appears to be the thread tensioning system, so disabling the thread portioning would be disabling the thread tensioning--something that is critical to sewing. It appears this model may have some issues and perhaps this one is particular to your machine. It may be best to take it for service.

Perhaps this will help:

I am embroidering and my machine is picking up the bobbin thread and it is appearing on the front of my project and also on the bottom of the design


Make sure that the bobbin thread is in the bobbin case tension. If you are using special "bobbin thread" it may be a lighter weight thread than the top thread.

Turn the upper tension to a lower number.

Make sure that you have adequate stabilizer and the appropriate type.

4d embroidery machine is pulling bobbin thread to front


Not sure what a 4D machine is, but guessing you have a Designer of some kind. Have you put in a new bobbin since you sewed out the successful design? Did you wind it yourself or is it a pre-wound? If wound yourself, maybe the tension on the bobbinfill was not correct and the bobbin is not wound properly as a result. Wind a new bobbin - take the machine speed down three clicks and wind the bobbinfill around the round metal tension bit in a figure-of-eight instead of around once only (i.e. go under the disc, around to the left then over the top then across to the bobbin filling mechanism).
Floss out the bobbin tension slot with a piece of strong sewing thread to be sure there is no fluff in there, and when you re-load the bobbin be sure to listen for the "click" as the thread goes into the tension slot.
Sometimes designs are badly digitised and they will not sew out nicely. If you are sure your fabric is correctly hooped, the bobbin is correctly wound and securely in the bobbin case, try loosening the upper thread tension by two clicks and see if that helps the problem to go away. (SET menu, numbers and plus and minus signs under the icon that looks like a DNA thread - minus to decrease tension.)

Bobbin thread coming up through top of design


My 270D does this when I'm about to run out of bobbin. If you just replaced it I'd guess you either wound it wrong or are using the wrong type of bobbin spool. It could be too loosely or too tightly wound.
