SOURCE: Brother Sewing Machine model:CS8150 bobbin thread problems

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.

SOURCE: Upper thread wraps around bobbin mechanism, while sewing

IT PROBABLY IS THREADED INCORRECTLY. GO SLOWLY BY THE DIAPHRAGM AND MAKE SURE IT IS THREADED CORRECTLY. ALSO MAKE SURE SPOOL PIN HOLDERS ARE IN PLACE THAT HELPS TO GUIDE THE THREAD CORRECTLY.

My bottom thread wont pull out once the cover is closed and the thread is pulled through and ready to sew.


If the top thread is not pulling up the bobbin thread, is it actually catching the bobbin thread? If not, then the machine may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

If it catches the bobbin thread but then the bobbin thread is difficult to pull, then possibly there is a snag somewhere that is catching the bobbin thread, the bobbin tension needs adjustment, or the bobbin case is incorrectly threaded.

I have an Elna Elina 40 and bobbin thread on the top when sewing. I have fixed thread tension up top and then when nothing changed I adjusted bobbin tension and nothing changes. Please help!


Please explain more fully the symptoms your machine is displaying and what you are attempting to do when making adjustments.
===============

If the bobbin thread is showing on top of the fabric, the upper thread is too tight and/or the bobbin tension is too loose.

Set the upper tension to the midway point between high & low number, then retest your machine. If the bobbin thread is still showing on top, then the bobbin tension is a bit too loose.

FWIW, it is normal when using 2 different color threads that you can see a "dot" of the other thread from the opposite side (especially with thin, fine fabric). If you try tightening both tensions to get rid of the "dot," the fabric will probably begin to pucker. If you are seeing a dot of each thread on the opposite side, your tension is perfect! Try stitching thicker fabric and see if the dots disappear. When sewing, it is best to use the same color thread for top and bottom or use a thread color that closely matches the fabric. Then the dots blend in and are not as noticeable.

I have just been given a singer melodie 40.When I start to sew, material is stopped by bobbin? Bobbin is breaking off bits of thread underneath?


Try a brand new needle. Make sure the thread is suitable to the needle and fabric you are using. AVOID old or bargain bin threads. Spend an extra dollar or two for good thread.
All About Needles

Check that there are no loose threads stuck in the upper thread path, ie the tension disk.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread. Verify that the thread path is correct. Mis-threading will invariably cause broken thread.

Clean out the bobbin area & feed dogs of any lint and loose threads. Check that the bobbin has been installed & threaded correctly and turning the right direction in the bobbin case.

Manually rotate the handwheel one turn until the upper thread grabs the the bobbin thread. Pull it the rest of the way to the top. When beginning to stitch, start slowly and gently hold both thread tails in your left hand until it has made a couple of stitches.

How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

If you have a manual, make sure you follow the maintenance tips. If the machine needs oiling, be sure to follow the instructions using only fresh good quality sewing machine oil. Most machines that have been given as gifts from a sewist's stash may not have been maintained regularly.

If it still does not stitch properly, take it for service. It could have a timing issue, ie the needle arrives at the bobbin at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread.

I can't sew with any thread below T-40 without the thread knotting every 10-20 stitches on the bobbin side.


sounds like the upper might be too tight and possibly the bobbin is too loose .

It is threaded. but it goes through motion but there is no sewing.


Make sure that your bobbin is full and that you have picked up the bottom thread. Before you start sewing you should have two threads lying on the needle plate. To catch the bobbin thread, hold the needle thread and turn the machine by the hand wheel. The needle will bring the bobbin thread up with it. Pull the threads out about 4 inches and then you are ready to sew.

I just got a Vintage Singer 600E sewing machine and it came with instructions on how to thread it but not how to get started sewing. I don't know how to bring up the thread from the bobbin to start sewing....


Hold onto the needle thread, turn the drive wheel, on the right side of the machine, until the needle goes down & back up. the bobbin thread should be caught in the loop of the needle thread. Pull it all the way out of the bobbin. and you are ready to sew.

Threading the bobbin


Threading the bobbin - winding thread onto the bobbin.

Position the new empty bobbin onto the vertical bobbin rod next to the end wheel. Click the rod to the right to engage drive. Hold the outer end wheel with left hand, and rotate the inner wheel anticlockwise by about a 1/2 turn (it stops) this removes drive from the foot and needle mechanism.

From a spool of thread on the top, thread to a loop/post on the left on the top. Then back to the bobbin you want to wind. Thread through a hole from the inside-out. Hold the thread vertically above the bobbin while you depress the footswitch to start winding. Let go when it's turned a few times.

Move bobbin shaft left, and tighten end wheel after winding enough.

Fitting bobbin-

Move footplate towards you, insert bobbin in hole so that bobbin rotates anticlockwise when thread is pulled, then pull thread into the fine notch towards you. After this position thread away from you, and slide the footplate closed.

To start / load thread. Hold the end 3" of the thread through the needle behind the sewing foot. hand crank towards you to sew first stitch in air. This should retrieve the lower thread - which you can catch with a handy pair of scissors. Then pull both threads rearwards - ready to sew.
