Bobbin thread bunches up creating a tangled mess under the plate

After threading the bobbin, the machine sews a few stitches then stops and the ball of thread under the sewing plate is the culprit. any ideas?

    I have the same problem, but feel your plate if it has a small burr on it from needleshitting the plate this can cause some of it.

This could either be due to the bobbin being wound too loosely, or the tension on the top thread is too loose. This just happened to me the other day, and I thought it was the bobbin thread, but then I put another bobbin in with a different color than the top thread (this is a huge help in diagnosing thread issues), and I was surprised to find that it was actually the top thread that was a big loopy mess on the underside of the fabric. I fixed it by tightening the tension on the top thread (quite a bit), and everything was fine.

I've had the same issue. Check to make sure that your thread cutter is going back to it's original position. Mine was staying out over the bobbin case causing the thread to wrap around it.

Thread keeps bunching up under needle plate.


hi Virginia.
you have not said what make you have.
but this is all i could find out.
Make sure your bobbin is threaded properly along with the top thread. It would help to know which machine you have. Mine has only one way to put the bobbin in so it will work okay, but I have had the thread miss the take up lever and it acted the same way (top thread). Keep trying.
Is it bunching as you first start sewing a seam? Try hold the bobbin thread and the top thread lightly when you first start your seam.
If you look at how the stitch is made, you'll see that the bobbin and top thread are interconnected, without a bobbin thread, you don't have a stitch. Check out the link below to see how a machine makes the stitch. It's pretty cool.
Are you bringing the bobbin thread to the surface before trying to sew? To do this, manually turn the wheel on the end of the machine so that the needle drops down into the bobbin race, while holding onto the tail of top thread. Bring the needle back up so that it's as high as it will go. Now pull on the tail of the top thread and it should bring up a loop of the bobbin thread. Pull up the loop so that the tail of the bobbin thread is up. As Marion said, you need to hold onto these tails when you start your seam, or the bobbin thread will get pulled down into the bobbin again and cause the snarling that you are having.

Here is a link that might be useful: Sewing machine stitch

When I have the thread bunching underneath, it is usually the upper tension that needs tweaking. Also, be sure that your needle is the right size and nice and sharp. A dull needle can really gum up the works.
When mine has done that it usually has lint under the bobbin case. Have you cleaned under and around the bobbin?
Make sure your bobbin is feeding off in the right direction.
I have just recently learned this. When you are threading your machine, make sure the needle and the presser foot are both in the up position. I am betting that would fix your problem.
I use to have this problem often. [sorry for the simplicity of this answer but it works for me] the needle goes up and down, when it starts it downward motion stop. this should be the position of the needle when you start to sew. hope this helps
or this link might help you out some more.

Bottom thread is all tangled when I sew. Top looks fine, then flip it over and it's a mess.


is it the top thread that is too loose and making the messy stitch or the bobbin thread. if it is the top thread coming down and making large loops that tangle increase your top tension slowly try a few stitches, repeat till you get back to normal.
If it is the bobbin thread that is tangling, first make sure you are using the same thread top and bottom, some will just not work together, then rethread the bobbin, if it is still too loose there is a little screw on the side of the bobbin casing, the larger of the two, turn it no more than a 1/10 turn to the right if too loose and to the left if too tight. I would make the starting point with a piece of tape or nail polish so you can get back to where you were if this is not the problem. My book says you very rarely ever have to touch the bobbin tension. good luck

If it is creating a thread mess (thread nest) under the fabric, either the machine is not threaded correctly or you have forgotten to lower the presser foot before beginning to stitch.

Make sure you are starting with a brand new needle!

Remove all the thread from the machine.

Check that the bobbin thread is smoothly wound onto the bobbin and that the bobbin is inserted and thread properly in the machine.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the upper thread. Check that the thread path is correct.

Set the upper tension to the midway point on the dial--this is usually the factory setting but may alter over time with use. Once you get your machine stitching without a mess, you can gently alter the upper tension until the two threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Remember to lower the presser foot before beginning to stitch.

It also helps to pull the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric and either wrapping both thread tails around a finger on the left hand or gently holding the thread tails between the left index finger and thumb. Then SLOWLY begin stitching.

Thread on my consew 225 keeps balling the thread on the bottbottom


Sounds like bird nesting. The upper thread accumulates under the fabric creating a series of loops and knots.

First: Install a brand new needle and make sure it is installed facing the correct direction. (A new needle is the least expensive fix for most sewing machine issues.)

Second: Remove the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Make sure it is threaded correctly (consult the owner's manual).

Third: Pull up the bobbin thread through the fabric and gently hold the thread tails in your left hand while slowly taking the first couple of stitches.

Basic Tips for All
  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.
