The tension on my machine is off.I don't know which thread to adjust.bobbin or top thread. on fabric top stitch seems ok,bottom stitch bunches up and is loose.How do I readjust the tensions?


If the thread problem appears under the fabric, it is a top thread issue.

If the thread problem appears on the top of the fabric, the bobbin thread is the issue.

Perhaps the upper thread is not seated completely in the tension disk. Remove the upper thread from the machine, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, then rethread from the beginning. Make sure the thread path is correct. Test your stitch.

If the thread is still looping under the fabric, the upper tension is too loose. Set the upper tension to the midway point. Test and adjust the tension until it is where you want it. Preferred tension is when both threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Harrision gc5550. Why is bottom stitching loose?


Usually, loose threads under the fabric indicate a loose upper tension. Be sure that you RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. This allows the thread to seat properly in the tension guides. If the loose threads are still appearing under the fabric, try tightening the upper tension. The upper and lower threads should meet in the middle of the fabric.

Adjust tension


The tension of the top thread and bobbin thread are in a "tug of war". If the top is "winning" or too high then the bottom thread will be showing on the top of the fabric. If the top is "loosing" or too loose then the top thread will be pulled through the fabric and show a lot on the bottom. They must be evened out so the "tug of war" is even so the knot is in the middle of the fabric.
START WITH BOBBIN FIRST: Remove bobbin and bob from finger. When you have it adjusted right then the bobbin will extend one inch when you bob it. If you can't bob your bobbin you will have to make an approximate and replace. You may have to do this a couple times to get it right.
WHEN IT'S RIGHT: The bobbin and top tension are equal without being too much pull on both that causes the fabric to pull together.

My handheld machine won't sew any fabric.the thread just flaps in and out of the fabric but its not sewing the fabric


Sounds like it is not catching the bobbin thread which is how it makes a stitch. Try re-threading top and bottom threads. Or perhaps your tension is far too loose. Adjust tension higher or lower to test.

Loose bobbin tension


the bobbin tension is set by that small spring plate that you pull the thread under after you put the bobbin back in the carrier / holder
a very small turn of that screw makes a big difference ob the tension unlike the needle thread tension
mostly the problem ( you never bothered to mention the symptom ) is bird nesting under the fabric which is the needle thread tension not tight enough

Singer 301a...sews on top of fabric nicely...bottom is just loose loops of thread...it's like the bobbin is not sewing...I put 2 different colors in to see...top is perfect...on bottom of fabric I see the...


This is a tension adjustment problem. It's good to use two different colors of thread, like you did. From your description, the top thread (needle thread) tension needs to be tighter. As you tighten the tension of the top thread, you'll see that the top thread pulls the bobbin thread up into the fabric so it's no longer laying loose on the bottom of the fabric.

You'll need to have the pressure foot down when you tighten the tension. Tighten it a little, sew a practice seam, check to see what the stitch looks like. Tighten it a little more, sew, check, etc etc--until both top and bottom look the same--you shouldn't see much (if any) of the bobbin thread color on top of the fabric or the top thread color on the underside.

Let me know how this works for you, ok?

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.
