Can not catching the bobbin tread at the bottom


The bobbin may be in backwards
the needle is not the correct one for the machine
the needle isn't correctly seated in the needle clamp
the machine is a little bit out of time.
Remember to hang on to the needle thread when you're trying to pick up the bobbin thread
Turn the handwheel in the direction that would advance the fabric from the front to the back of the machine
make sure the bobbin-winding spindle has been pushed back to the left for sewing
make sure your needle is inserted correctly as far as it will go with the flat side facing back
and that the upper tension disks of your machine are threaded correctly.
Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension.
Turn the hand wheel (TOWARDS YOU ONLY) never turn the hand wheel away from you and hold the needle thread lightly. .
pull the loop up and then pull both threads (top and bobbin) under the foot and toward the back of the machine.
Also could be a timing problem

Thread gets under needle while sewing. needle then cuts thread. is this a bobbin tension problem? thanks!


Hi. My guess would be no. Sounds more like an upper or needle thread tension problem than a lower or bobbin thread tension problem. Your trouble could also be the thread take-up lever was missed when threading the machine. Trace the thread path to make sure the threading is correct. Is this an embroidery machine? If not, were you trying make a darning stitch? Perhaps with the foot raised? Keep in mind that raising the foot loosens the upper thread tension.

The tension of the thread on top and bottom is not equal. How do you adjust the bottom thread to make it equal to the top?


Hello

First locate the sewing machine tension gauge. Sometimes its called a knob or a button or found on your Touch Screen if you have a computerized machine. Refer to your manual if you can't find it.

Either your needle thread is too tight or your bobbin thread is too loose.

First check that your bobbin thread hasn't slipped out of its tension spring in the bobbin case.

If the bobbin thread is correctly threaded through the tension spring, then decrease your needle tension by 1 number. Test by stitching several inches on your small quilt sandwich. Keep decreasing the tension until no needle thread is visible on the quilt top.

If sewing machine tension problems occur during the middle of a quilting session, again, first refer to the checklist above. Once you're satisfied that your sewing machine is threaded properly and your needle is not the culprit, then adjust the tension as outlined above.

If you have just started testing your quilting thread choices and you are using different threads for the needle and bobbin, you will in all probability make adjustments to your tension.

Make a small quilt sandwich from the materials used in your quilt to make this sandwich. It doesn't have to be pretty or even pin basted. It should be just big enough to test some of the stitching you plan to do on your quilt.

It seems like i have no tension on my brother xl 3030 the top thread is to loos and the bottome thread is bunching really bad and getting all twisted around the bobin casing


To tighten the upper thread tension, adjust the dial to the right. To loosen the upper thread tension, adjust the dial to the left. The standard tension setting is 5.

Bobbin not threading through, spool thread is gathering in bobbin catch and not sewing - just clumps of thread


It would appear to be threaded wrongly. Pull all the threads out, check the visible upper tension discs for broken threads then re-thread top and bobbin, making sure the pressure foot is up when you re-thread. Bobbins should normally turn clockwise when the tail of the thread is pulled. Make sure thread has gone under the tension spring.
Oddly enough, a blunt needle can occasionally cause this problem so if all else fails try changing the needle. Good luck

Hello, I have a Viking Topaz sewing machine, the top thread is visible on the underside of fabric, indicating a tension problem. I have cleaned the machine, turned it off and back on, rethread it numberous...


Thread, Tension, Needle.

Make sure your needle matches your application. example: heavy denim needs a heavy needle (90-100) instead of the "universal" needle that usually comes with a machine.

Also make sure that when you thread your machine that you have the pressure foot in the up position. Many machines release the tension discs in this position allowing for proper threading. Also make sure there is no fluff, lint, etc., in your tension areas.

It dose not sew, and when it dose the bobbin tangles up and lets out too much thread


The bobbin goes into the holder in what would appear to be the wrong direction ie, the thread doubles back. If this is correct, the bobbin tension might be too low, there is a screw on the bobbin holder to set the tension.
