Bottom thread is very very loose during stitching, looped up

I go along, sometimes even just after starting to sew, the bottom thread on the stitch line will be all looped up. I can hear some clicks when it does this. the loops will be from 1/2 inch to 1 inch in length along the sewing line. The loops themselves will be a quarter in and many many together on the stitch line. I tried adjusting the tension a bit. It doesn't help.

Looping on bottom:
Great description, that helps a lot. Big loops are actually easier to solve usually. 1st know this: Loops on bottom means the top is too loose or the bottom is too tight. With loops that big its probably the top is too loose. 1st look in tension disks, there is likely a chunk of thread in there. A toothpick is handy to dig it out (the flat kind) 2nd make sure that the thread is getting between the disks when threaded. 3rd Make sure the thread is in the take up lever (the thing that moves up and down in front and not the needle bar or any part of the needle bar.) If neither, then the bobbin case could have a burr on it and the thread is hanging on that burr. Also the bobbin case may be in wrong. I hope this helps

Singer 2517c. When sewing, the bottom stitch is using to much thread, excessive amounts & the stitch isn't tight. I've tried all settings & have used a new bobbin. I'm at a loss......


Your description isn't very clear. When you say the "bottom stitch is using too much thread" Do you mean you see lots of loopy threads on top of the seam? Or do you mean you see loops on the bottom under the fabric? If your loops on the bottom, that means the top tension is too loose, you've not remembered to put the presser foot down, you have not threaded the top thread properly... Start by rethreading carefully with the presser foot UP. Then do a test stitch, remembering to put the presser foot down. If you still get loops underneath... tighten the tension.

If your loops are on the top of the fabric. loosen the top tension... then do a test seam... and if you still have loops loosen again and repeat. If you start to see loops on the bottom... tighten the tension a bit.

Good luck

Make sure that the needle is inserted all the way up and is facing the correct way. Tighten the upper tension gradually until the stitches look even on top and bottom.

The thread on the top side of my material starts looping after 4-5 stitches. I've tried every number of thread tension, and even on 0 it loops on the right side of the material, not on the back.


Check the tension on your bobbin thread. When you hold it by the thread and let it dangle does it just drop down without any resistance at all? If so then you need to tighten it a bit. If the bobbin thread is too loose it can not pull the top thread down enough thus puts the loops on the top side of the stitch.

Loose bottom stitch on brother se 350


Hi, general rule of thumb:: loops on the top, problem on the bottom.. Loops on the bottom, problem is on the top.. When threading your machine, stop just before you thread your needle, put the presser foot down. Try pulling the thread. If it pulls easily, the thread is not thru the tension wheel right. If it pulls hard, you got it right.

Loose stitching underneath. HOW CAN I FIX!!!!


Sounds as though you may have a burr or rough spot on the hook where the bobbin inserts. Run your finger along the edge of the hook to see if there are any rough spots.I'm sure you're going to find at least one from the time you broke the needle.Once you locate it, remove it with an emery stick or small sharpening stone. Polish it so that it is smooth. Should work okay.

BOTTOM STITCH IS ALWAYS LOOSE


If the top stitch is loose, then you need to tighten the bobbin tension: if the bottom stitch is loose, tighten the top tension. Hope this helps. It could also be the size needle and thread you are using for a particular fabric. Different fabrics require different notions.

Machine not sewing


Make sure you have threaded the machine from right to left, it sounds like the needle thread is trapped under the lower looper thread and cannot form a stitch.........start the threading over from scratch like this:

  1. Lower Looper
  2. Upper Looper
  3. Left Needle
  4. Right Needle
Is there a diagram for how to thread on the inside of the door ?

Follow that slowly and carefully to make sure you have not missed any thread guides on the way, as each one needs to be followed through to ensure correct tension and thread progression.

If you are certain that all threaded correctly, did you have a fabric jam and pulled it loose ? If so, the timing may well be affected.

Post an update and we'll get this right.

Thread tension problem when sewing on heavy fabrics


Sometimes when I need to use heavy thread for top stitching to reinforce a seam that has come undone, I will use the heavy thread on the top and regular thread on the bottom. I haven't tried it the other way around for hemming but I would think it would work. I do not currently have a Bernina.
