Try changing the needle
rethead the machine top and bobbin using every thread guide
which is important to the tension on the machine.
make sure the bobbin is not over full
make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
also make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin
case, if the bobbin is a front or side loading make sure the bobbin
case is inserted correctly into the machine
if none of these suggestions help then it's also possible that the
machines timing could be a problem and needs to be checked.

Thank you, thank you! I just tightened the screw on my bobbin case and that instantly fixed my thread tension problem. How on earth are you supposed to know about the little screw?! I thank you so much for the tip!

SOURCE: thread on bottom, bobbin thread loose

Sounds as though you've misthreaded the upper tension. The best way to verify this would be to thread your machine, lower the presser foot on to the material. Now try pulling the thread through the needle. (Assuming your upper tension dial is set to a number greater than one). You should feel resistance. Should you not feel resistance, rethread your upper tension.

SOURCE: freesia 415 - bobbin thread is jamming up will

1. Put in a new needle
2. Take the thread off the top of your machine and rethread the top. Make sure the presser foot is in the up positon when you thread your machine because that is when the tensions discs separate so your thread gets deep into the unit where it belongs. The tension dial (the small dial) should be on 4 or 5.
3. Inspect the bobbin area. Do you see the thread laying across the bobbin itself? You should alway see the thread laying across the bobbin in that model. That tells you that you've threaded the bobbin case correctly. The thread must be pulled into the metal guide of the bobbin case, from approximately the 6 O'clock postion to the 7 O'clock position.
4Never turn the handwheel away from you with the 415. You'll notice that the take up lever is of a more open design. If you turn the handwheel backwards (away from you) the thread will jump out of the lever and jamming will result.

I suspect you are correctly threading the machine but the timing of the needle and bobbin hook is off. When the threaded needle goes into the bobbin area, a pointed hook grabs the thread and loops it with the bobbin thread. Something is catching when the needle starts to come up that is not allowing the bobbin thread to be pulled back through the needle plate opening by the upper thread. With machine threaded and bobbin in place, have the bobbin area open if possible and watch the thread interaction when the needle goes down. To set the hook/needle timing, normally covers have to be removed. Suggest taking it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.

Do you mean the thread knots and loops up under or over the fabric? If so it sounds like you need to re-thread. You may have not put the thread into one of the tension wheels correctly. Keep the presser foot up when you do it.

Pfaff sewing machine 1469. Does not pick up bobbin thread. Large loops of top thread on bottom of material.


make sure you have it threaded correctly,and also check and make sure you have the needle in correctly.The flat part of the needle goes towards the back.(away from you).Also double check that the bobbin is in the proper way and is going thru the tensions it needs to go thru.
pull your threads to the back of fabric, hold together & hold until you've stictched an inch or so.
The thread from the bobbin should start to creep up towards the feed dogs and make a loop that the needle and thread can "grab" to pull it up thru the hole for stitching. You might want to slowly put the needle down thru the feed dogs and then slowly with the winder not the pedal but with the winder slowly bring the needle up again. Try this a few times and see if the needle and bring it up. try it couple of times to get it right.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Janome 1600P-DB Tension Works For So Long...


It sounds as though the thread is jumping out of the tension assembly. The next time this happens, do not raise the presser foot before you do the following.Cut the thread above the needle and pull on it.If it is working properly there will be tension on it.If it is not working properly, the thread will pull through very easily.If the thread is coming out of the tension , either it isn't threaded correctly or you may need to wrap the thread around the bobbin winder guide to keep it from coming out.If you wrap it around the bobbin winder guide reduce the tension to around 2 , 3 or even less.
Hope this helps.

My needle keeps breaking while I'm trying to machine quilt. It also at times will collect the thread on the other side of the quilt which makes me think something is wrong with the bobbin.


Q1.(A) Without realising, you could be 'helping' the material feed.
Q2. (A) Is the thread collecting at the start or during sewing?,,if at the start, make sure threads are clear and hold them out the back of work gently till a few stictches are made.
If during sewing, it could be tension isn't adjusted correctly, experiment.
