It could be that your thread dog is clogged with thread (this has happened to me) Check your bobbin, perhaps its just wound poorly.
Perhaps the needle thread tension is too loose for the material your sewing. OR the needle you are using is too fine/heavy for the thread.

What am I doing wrong when the stitching on top of the material is ok and straight and the backside is knotting?


wrong bobbin tension , but amazingly its actually easier to adjust the top threads tension to compensate for it , use your tension knob to slowly adjust , try an inch , slowly adjust try an inch , and so on to get a top and bottom thread tension to match , this will need to be adjusted for each major change in fabric (aka , knits to woven )

Thread tangling inside bobbin case catching on another part


1. thread machine correctly.
2. make sure bobbin case in spinning in the case in the correct rotation. If the bobbin is spinning off of the bobbin incorrectly, "bird nesting" is the result.

Troubleshooting Brother PE 770


Usually this is a tension problem. On mechanical machines, you'd adjust the dial, or possibly even the bobbin tension. But on a computer machine, I don't know how you set the upper tension, sorry to say.

Sometimes it can help to unthread and rethread a machine, and I don't know why it sometimes works, but it's a simple thing to try.

But if the upper tension isn't set correctly for the work being done or if the tension mechanism, however that's handled on a computer machine, isn't working correctly, this is what happens. Bird's nest is a good way to describe it.

Sometimes lint built up in the bobbin case can cause this symptom too, but I'd assume you keep this area clean. One reason I haven't yet invested in a computer machine is because problems like this often don't have such simple solutions as on the mechanical machines.

Why does thread gather in bobbin area and jam machine


Completely unthread the top and bobbin threads. Clean any lint build up out of the bobbin race assembly using the little brush and some canned air. Check that the needle is inserted correctly...with the flat side towards the back. Then carefully rethread the top and the bobbin threads. Make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly...if it's backwards the machine won't sew properly.

My Singer Futura keeps beeping and stopping every few seconds.


There are a few problems this could be. Your top thread could be broken or about to break; your bobbin thread could be broken, about to break or empty/about to become empty and is loose around the bobbin; you could have a birds' nest (a mass of thread just under the fabric/presser foot and/or within the feed dog and bobbin) forming and causing a jam; or it could be your Futura having a little bit of a hissy fit. Obviously, if you've checked for broken thread you need to move on. Check for a birds' nest by removing the fabric and clip your threads. If you find one, clear it, rethread your bobbin and begin sewing again. If there's no birds' nest, then place the fabric back in and try sewing/embroidering again. If the machine acts up again, I recommend removing the fabric/hoop, rethreading your top and bobbin threads, replacing fabric/hoop and resuming where you left off. If the machine still gives you trouble, try hitting the start button for a couple of times and seeing if the problem doesn't simply resolve itself. When you're embroidering areas that have a few small, short stitches only, the machine seems to act up a little and then behaves fine once you bypass the area. Be sure to take all of the other steps first, though, because a birds' nest will RUIN a beautiful seam or embroidery.

I have the futura ce-100. When embroidering it


This annoys the heck out of me, cause it happens a lot more than it should. There can be some valid reasons as to why it happens, though.

Your top thread could be broken or about to break; your bobbin thread could be broken, about to break or empty/about to become empty and is loose around the bobbin; you could have a birds' nest (a mass of thread just under the fabric/presser foot and/or within the feed dog and bobbin) forming and causing a jam; or it could be your Futura having a little bit of a hissy fit. Obviously, if you've checked for broken thread you need to move on. Check for a birds' nest by removing the fabric and clip your threads. If you find one, clear it, rethread your bobbin and begin sewing again. If there's no birds' nest, then place the fabric back in and try sewing/embroidering again.

Large amount of thread on rear of material, like nest


Perhaps the needle thread tension is too loose for the material your sewing. It could be that your thread dog is clogged with thread (this has happened to me) Check your bobbin, perhaps its just wound poorly.
OR the needle you are using is too fine/heavy for the thread.
