Try re-threading, make sure the presser lifer is up so the tension discs are open and the thread will go into them. It sounds like you may have missed either the upper tension discs or the take up lever.

A drop of oil on the hook wouldn't hurt if you haven't oiled in awhile.

good luck!

Thread keeps coming out of the bobbin holder while sewing


it could be the way the bobbin is wound
try turning the bobbin the opposite way in the bobbin case
try a different bobbin that one could be warped
there could be something wrong with the bobbin case itself
or even the hook and the hook race may need to be checked
to see if there is something wrong with them.

Sews good on top but balls up on bottom.


Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.

The thread is loaded into the bobbin however it keeps looping around the thing that the bobbin sits on.


On bobbin holder is a small screww to set the bobbin tention, must be set (tighten) if too loose it will glog up if too tight it will break the thred. wcbotha@yahoo.com

Bobbin holders keeps slipping and thread tension issues


Make sure the needle is at it's highest position.

Lift the latch on the back of the bobbin case.

Hold it open and then insert it into the shuttle - finger (not yours, the upright "finger"on the case) pointing up.

You may have to move the bobbin case lightly to the left or right before it clicks into place.

When you thread the machine always make sure the presser foot lever is up and this will ensure proper tension of the top thread.

Lower thread keeps jamming even though bobbin case is clean and tension on thread has been adjusted.


Hello,
Here are some things to try.

* Re-thread your machine

* Change your bobbin
There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you
sew.

Also, before you start to sew a seam, grasp the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back
and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting
caught in your machine.
I hope one of these solutions help.

Bobbin holder


Make sure the needle is in the highest position before you try putting the bobbin holder in. The bobbin holder has a metal 'finger' which fits into a 'slot' in the housing and it only goes in if you have the needle up.

Make sure that your needle is put in the correct way, there is a groove in the front of the needle, check with your finger nail, this is usually to be facing you, and make sure the thread is going through the tension holder correctly do not have the foot down when you are threading the machine,as this stops the thread from going through the needle tension holder.
