Janome 11000:bobbin thread appears on top, filling the design

The top thread catches the bobbin thread, but has no tension, so the bobbin thread fills in the satin stitches, zigzags, etc. You can't even see the color for all the white bobbin thread. I've cleaned everything completely and retreaded countless times. I've tried adjusting the top tension up and down to no avail. I tried regular straight stitching and the top thread just lays on top, feeding out only because the feed dogs move the fabric. The threads are "caught" like they should be, but not with the right tension.

SOURCE: Desgin stitch out on Futura 250

It sounds as though the design is stitching but the machine is skipping stitches. If this is the case, be sure you hoop the tear away in the hoop with your fabric.Make sure the fabric is taut. Use a new needle and a good quality thread.If this doesn't solve your problem, try the design on a different type of fabric.

SOURCE: singer machine needle won't do width in zigzag

It sounds like it needs lubrication on the needle bar frame and linkage.

SOURCE: PFAFF 362 Sewing Machine: The shift

I just fixed this on my pfaff 230-the problem is the needle position dial-the middle dial with the chrome lever on the right-has froze up .
remove the dial-it doesn't come off by the screwhead in the middle of the dial ,the screw you need to loosen is the one under the wider end of the part of the dial you hold-you will need a glasses screwdriver.
once it is off ,heat the exposed shaft with a heat gun while turning the shaft back and forth with pauses for dripping 3 in 1 oil on the shaft so the heat melts the hardened grease and draws the 3 in1 in to flush out the old grease and lube the shaft.
eventually you will be able to turn the shaft easily-then when it cools off replace the plastic dial.make sure your upper dial is on "0" there is a cam on it that will push down the other end of the chrome lever.
This will work-there is no plastic in the shaft and arm assembly to melt and you don't have to dissasemble from the top-that sucks.

SOURCE: I have a 7466 Singer sewing machine. No matter how

Make sure to thread the machine with the presser foot up to insure the thread is seated into the tension control.

Always free-motion with the presser foot down.

Try a lower setting on the tension.

I have a janome 8200, when sewing the top stitch is perfect but top thread bunch under neath and no bobbin thread appears to be used, I have changed threads, bobbins and needle,

Be sure to use a brand new needle.

Remove the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the upper thread. This allows the tension disk to release so the thread will seat properly. Verify that the thread path is correct.

Check that the bobbin is installed correctly (turning the proper direction in the bobbin case) and the bobbin case tension is threaded correctly.

Set the upper tension to the midway point. (This is the beginning point and may need tweaking later.)

Pull the bobbin thread to the top of the sewing project.
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread P.S.--this works with regular sewing, not just for quilting.

Lower the presser foot and test your machine. Begin sewing slowly.

If there are still issues--upper thread looping, try tightening but if it doesn't improve, the tension mechanism may not be working properly. Check and remove any thread pieces or gunk stuck in the tension mechanism. If still not working, it probably needs service.

If the bobbin thread is still not connecting with the upper thread, the sewing machine's timing is most likely off. (Search the internet for "sewing machine timing." There are multiple web sites and videos available that discuss this OR take it for service.)

My bobbin thread is part of my embroidery on my memory craft 11000

you may have the fabric not tight enough in the hoop or try using the same colour thread in the bobbin

The thread is not catching properly underneath

Try resetting the bobbin. Also check if bobbin is over-wound. Open hatch and watch to see what is going on down there. See if threads are wound around base of bobbin.

There might be a piece of thread or lint caught in the bobbin tension preventing it from functioning correctly.

Breaking Thread

Use a bigger spool stopper to keep the thread from catching in the **** on the thread spool.

Bobbin winder has no tension

are you sure you have the thread over the right place? it should be from the spool to the small metal wheel on the top of the machine and nothing else, also make sure your using a janome or s-class bobbin ( also it should be a plastic bobbin if it loads from the top of the machine and not the front ) when i fill a bobbin i also start out slow sometimes keeping my finger loosley on the thread itself before it winds on the bobbin to give it more stability.

Mc 5700 problem


You don't have much info here to go on. I take it that it embroiders fine otherwise, ie on the built in designs. Is it a Janome card? Does it do it on a particular card / design? Have you changed the bobbin thread that you use? Check the top tension - even though it is 'automatic', it does require adjustment at times. Have you changed / using stabiliser that you use? Is the bobbin correctly threaded?

Check these things
