Rethread your machine and make sure the thread is properly in the tension disk. Tighten the tension a little at a time once you are sure everything is threaded properly.

Your tension is loose on top. Adjust your tension dial up a little at a time until you have a desirable stitch. Before adjusting the tension, you may want to look into the tension and see if there are any threads caught between the disc. If so remove them. Another common problem is that your machine is not threaded properly, make sure the pressure foot is in the up position when threading and if needed consult your manual for the proper threading diagram.

SOURCE: My top stitch is loose on my singer

Tighten your tension for the top thread.

SOURCE: Lower Looper are loose

depending on the fabric sewed, sometimes the tension has to be
adjusted. when sewing on a project cut a scrap piece from the fabric
being used, as you sew then you can check to tension to see if
it needs to be tightened or loosened.
do you have a manual for the machine?
also try new needles

When stitching on my Juki 1541 the top stitching is perfect but the stitching from the bobbin is loose. how to fix, I did try sighing the screw on the bobbing , did not work please help!!!!!!!


When the bobbin stitching is off the problem is usually with the top thread. Unthread and rethread the machine making sure it is threaded correctly and is securely in the tension disk. If you still have trouble try using a new needle.

Top stitch looks perfect but bobbin stitch lies flat.


what you describe indicates that the needle thread tension is too loose
it is not pulling the bobbin thread up and that is creating the birds nest under the material

I have a pfaff 1475 and i can not get the tension correct. it is very loose on rt he bobbin side and perfect on the top side. HELP


......... when you did the bobbin drop, did it drop some then stop? Is the bobbin in the correct way (can go in two ways - thread feeds differently into / under the tension 'finger')

Machine not working as normal


it's possible there could be a loose or broken part in the machine, and the cam that does the zig zag could be worn or damaged.
having it checked would be a good idea.

When I embroider with my Pfaff Creative 2 the top tension pulls bobbin thread up too much. I changed toe tension on top but it still does the same thing. How can this be fixed?


Suggest you do rethreading ,then test the stitches on straight stitch. If top stitches is loose you have to reduce the upper thread tension, if the bottom stitches is loose you have to increase the upper thread tension. Adjust accordingly till you can get a perfect straight stitch. If okay then you can continue your embroidery work.

Bernina activa 210 won't zigzag and has bobbin issues on straight stitch


it's very possible that the machine is slightly out of time & needs to be service at a sewing machine shop
is the fabric & thread & needle compatable with each other?
did you use every thread guide when threading the machine?
is the bobbin in correctly?
is the bobbin warped?

Stitching problems with my sewing machine


Make sure first of all that you have a perfect needle in and the correct way round, failing that you may need to retime the machine, if you email me I will attach instructions.
