The tension on my machine is off.I don't know which thread to adjust.bobbin or top thread. on fabric top stitch seems ok,bottom stitch bunches up and is loose.How do I readjust the tensions?


If the thread problem appears under the fabric, it is a top thread issue.

If the thread problem appears on the top of the fabric, the bobbin thread is the issue.

Perhaps the upper thread is not seated completely in the tension disk. Remove the upper thread from the machine, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, then rethread from the beginning. Make sure the thread path is correct. Test your stitch.

If the thread is still looping under the fabric, the upper tension is too loose. Set the upper tension to the midway point. Test and adjust the tension until it is where you want it. Preferred tension is when both threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

How do I adjust the tension?


Set our machine's upper tension dial somewhere around the midpoint (between the lowest & highest number).

RAISE the presser foot and then rethread the upper thread from the very beginning. (The tension disks are released when the presser foot is raised allowing the thread to seat properly.) (When testing tension, it helps to use different color threads in the bobbin vs the top thread so you can see how it is sewing.)

Sew a test on the fabric you will be stitching. The ideal tension is when the upper thread and bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric. If the bobbin thread is appearing on the top of the fabric, the upper tension is too tight and needs to be loosened. If the upper thread is appearing under the fabric, the upper tension is too loose and needs to be tightened. Righty-tighty and lefty-loosey!

Harrision gc5550. Why is bottom stitching loose?


Usually, loose threads under the fabric indicate a loose upper tension. Be sure that you RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. This allows the thread to seat properly in the tension guides. If the loose threads are still appearing under the fabric, try tightening the upper tension. The upper and lower threads should meet in the middle of the fabric.

My stiches are loose on the bottom of my banner - is it the bobbin or a tension issue?


If the threads on the back are loopy, you need to tighten the top tension. If you have a spare piece you may want to run some of the plastic through the machine until you get the tension correct. If the top tension is too loose, the stitching will just pull out.

Loose bobbin tension


the bobbin tension is set by that small spring plate that you pull the thread under after you put the bobbin back in the carrier / holder
a very small turn of that screw makes a big difference ob the tension unlike the needle thread tension
mostly the problem ( you never bothered to mention the symptom ) is bird nesting under the fabric which is the needle thread tension not tight enough

Tension is loose underside


Loops appear on the surface (top side) of the fabric?
Reduce the tension by turning the upper tension control dial to a lower number. If the loops still appear on the surface of the fabric after you adjust the upper tension, the bobbin thread may be too loose. In this case, turn the screw clockwise, being careful not to over-tighten the screw, approximately 30-45 degrees to increase bobbin tension. After you adjust the bobbin thread, adjust the upper thread to match the bobbin thread.
Make sure you reset before your next project.

Can not get the tension right, to loose


The pressure foot has to be down to adjust the tension. Sometimes the tension on the bobbin can be wrong and it can appear to be the tension on top.

Fixing the bottom thread when it sews loose


It could be that you threaded the machine with presser foot down.

When the foot is down, then tension control is closed and the thread cannot seat for proper control to the needle.

What appears to be a bobbin problem is actually the top thread not having the tension needed (thead is not where it should be within the tension control) to form a stitch.

I am using a satin stitch to applique. The tension is incorrect. I have placed a different colour thread in the top and bobbin, the top thread is appearing only as a single thread through the bottom...


You need to tighten the tension on the bobbin thread as it is too loose and is being pulled through by the tension on the top which is probably correct. First check that the bobbin is in correct. I know it's frustrating but even after 40 yr it's where I start if it's all in right then tighten the screw on the bobbin case a little at a time till you get it to the right tension. The thread coming out of the bobbin case should take a pull for thread to come out if you hold the thread and turn loose of the bobbin case and the thread unwinds like a yo-yo it's to loose. The bobbin should stay in the case wile you test it this way.
