The bottom thread is real loopy. I have adjusted the top tension and it helps a bit but still to loose


Remove all the thread from your machine. Install a brand new needle. Raise the presser foot and re-thread the upper thread, making sure you are following the correct threading sequence. Confirm that the bobbin thread is threaded through the bobbincase properly. Now, perform another test stitch. Is the bobbin thread still looping?

If you have already tightened the upper thread tension and the bobbin tension is still too loose, then you may need to tighten the bobbin tension. First, mark with a permanent marker where the slash of the screw head meets the bobbin case. This will mark where the screw was originally set before you begin making adjustments and allows you to return the screw to that position should you need to.

Set the upper tension to the halfway point between the high & low number. This is what would normally be the standard.

Then gently turn the bobbin tension screw to the right 1/8th of a turn at a time. Then test. Keep adjusting until the bobbin thread tension is correct. The tensions are correct when the upper thread and the bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric.

How to set the tension


The carrier and bobbin are removed. Place the thread in the carrier with the thread dispensing counterclockwise. Place the thread between the metal pieces (tension). let the carrier hang from your finger and bob it slightly. It should extend one inch. If it doesn't then you can adjust it by turning the small screw slightly until it does what I said. Now, replace this assembly. The top tension you can start at three. The sewing should be an even pull between the upper and lower thread. If the thread knot is in the center of the material it is right. If the knot is under the material then raise the upper tension. If the knot is on the upper material then you should lower the upper tension. The key is to start with the bobbin tension correct and adjust the upper tension until the knot is in the center of the fabric

Feeder not moving


knotted up thread under the material indicates that the needle thread tension is incorrect ( needs tightening)
once you have that correct the material, will feed normally
use scrap when adjusting and the correct tension is when the top and bottom threads meet at the join ( middle -center )of the materials being sewn

Upper thread keeps breaking


Symptoms like this are typically tension or threading problems.
Grab some dental floss (unwaxed) completely remove the top thread. Lift the foot. Run your floss between any tension discs.

Get out your manual and make sure you thread it properly. Have the proper retention disc on the thread spindle if your machine has one. Make sure the thread is unspooling the correct way. Thread the machine with the foot up always. ...

Test sew on scrap. still breaking? Change the needle (make sure it's the right needle for the project.) Test sew. Finally check your tension and stitch length. Thicker materials typically need longer stitches. Loosen the tension a little at a time. testing between changes.

If none of those things work... check your needle throat plate and foot. There could be a burr causing the problem.

Using jeans thread, bobbins thread pulls out immediately, tension is incorrect


Sometimes you need to go for a lesser tension as soon as you move up in thread thickness. A jeans thread is often nylon and already has tension in the way it's wrapped. Try using a low tension and a straight line seam (don't use a zigzag pattern or wave).

Also, try practicing on a piece of scrap material first- make sure it is the same thickness/consistency as the jean material you want to work on. Do a few forward and then backward lines; this will make sure the problem isn't in the initial wind of the bobbin itself, and this usually gets the extra slack out of the bobbin.

Gobbs of thread gather on backside of material, while front stitch is good...how do I correct this


Hi! Here are two things to check that generally cause problems like this:

1. Check that you're threading the machine correctly, especially the take-up lever.

2. It may be that you need to tighten the top tension. When the top tension is too loose, it'll cause big gobs of thread, like you say, on the back of the material. All this thread is actually top thread (not bobbin thread). (I recommend using different colored threads in your top thread and in your bobbin when you suspect tension problems.)

A couple of things to remember when you are adjusting the tension:
  • Always adjust the tension with the pressure foot DOWN.
  • Thread the machine with the pressure foot UP (so the thread can slip easily into the tension disks).
  • The higher the number on the dial, the tighter the tension.
  • Adjust in small increments. Stitch a few inches, check, adjust, stitch, check adjust--and repeat as needed.
I'm in the process of posting some photos about tension adjustments on www.robbiesews.blogspot.com. Check there later tonight and I should have them up.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

I can't get the tension on my sewing machine adjusted correctly. Right now the upper tension is turned as high as it will go and I've loosened the lower tension but I still have the upper thread looped...


It is possible that you threaded the machine with the presser foot down.

This creates loopy stitching because the thead never entered the tension control. Foot down = closed tension.

Put the settings back to their normal settings.

Raise the presser foot and re thread the machine.
