SOURCE: Top thread stitches correctly but bottom thread loops.

Make sure your bobbin is not in the case upside down and turning the wrong way.
Sometime people thread the machine with the presser foot down and the upper thread does not go between the tension discs, so check that.

SOURCE: Bottom (bobbin thread) makes loops

I don't have the same brand as yours, but on my machine there is a little screw on the bobbin case that you tighten to increase the bobbin tension. If you've got one, turn it 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time.

FYI---- Loops on the bottom-- problem is in the threading..
Loops on the top--- problem is with the bobbin.

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.

My Bernina Artista 185 has been looping the top thread on the underneath side. Is this a tension problem? No amount of adjustment seems to correct it. What can I do to correct the looping problem?

It is a tension problem. My advice is always to double check in the manual that you are threading correctly. With loops underneath, your tension is too loose, or the bobbin is not seated properly.

The thread for the top needle just sews and loops onto the lower thread


I think you are saying that there is a loop showing on the bottom of the lower thread stitch. If the lower stitch looks correct and not bunching, you will need to change the tension on the upper stitch. Make sure that your threads are firmly inserted within the discs also before adjusting the tension. It doesn't take much to change the tension so take it slowly.

Thread looping on top


I have no kenmore experience sorry as I use a singer and a jones. Although I can tell you that looping on any machine is usually a tension problem. Consult your manual on how to adjust the tension. If you don't have it you can order a manual for your machine from managemylife.com it's a very handy site, well worth checking out.

I have a jones vx810 and have taken the tension dial apart and now icant put it back together as idont know what goes where


you can purchase a new tension dial here
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/tension-brother-vx-800-sewing-machine.aspx for your machine. This may be simpliest solution.

there is also a manual on that site http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-book-brother-vx810-sewing-machine-instruction-manual.aspx but I can't see images to know if it includes an exploded diagram of the tension dial.

This is the first time I've used my machine. I can't get it to stitch correctly. There are always looped threads on the bottom. I've changed the tension up and down and I still have the loops. I've...


Check the manual again and make sure you have it threaded correctly. It still sounds like there isn't enough top tension. Perhaps you missed something in threading it.

The wrong loops are on the surface of the material that I've sewn


Loops on the top of the fabric are usually caused by the bobbin thread not in the bobbin case tension correctly, remove the bobbin and reinstall it. You should feel a slight resistance when you pull on the bobbin thread.

Thread looping on the bottom


Thread looping on the bottom means you have a problem with the top thread. In your case there is no tension on your top thread. Take all the thread out of the top and start threading over. Make sure you follow the correct path and make sure the thread goes through the tension discs. Then at the time of sewing, make sure your foot is down (this closes the tension discs and gives the thread the tension.) You may have worked on the tension setting while not realizing the thread was not in between theses discs, so also make sure the top tension disc setting is in the average before sewing.
Good luck.

(If you see loops on top, it means you have a problem with the bottom thread)

When i use sewing cloth in backside the thread will too loose then i use tension tight it correct in 8 number but manual book says 4 or 5 is correct wat can i do help me


Unthread your machine and set the tension to 4.5. rethread your machine up to the needle and then put the presser foot down. If the thread pulls hard, your machine is threaded right if it pulls easily, the thread is not thru the tension wheel correctly.

Rule of thumb:: loops on the top, problem on the bottom.
loops on the bottom, problem on the top.

JONES SEWING MACHINE PROBLEMS


We have a very old Jones Sewing Machine (1960's) we are having trouble with the thread at the moment. When we sew the thread gathers up underneath the material that we are trying to sew. Any suggestions to overcome this problem?

Bottom thread loops


More than likely the Bobbin is not threaded correctly and the tension is not being controlled.  review the manual carefully, pay attention to the direction the thread is wound on the bobbin and place it in the case exactly as illustrated, feed the thread through the tension groove.
I would also advise returning to the bobbin to the factory setting and leave it there.
