guide the the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.)If it doesn't work like this, then there is probably thread stuck inside the tension assembly. Set the tension to zero and blow hard between the discs to dislodge the thread. If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle.

Check to be sure you have the correct bobbin and that it is inserted the correct way.
OR remove the needle plate to remove the bobbin case. Look for any burrs or rough spots. Use a fine emery stick and steel wool to remove and buff them Reassemble and try again.

SOURCE: Persistant beeping

Look for the buttonhole lever, just behind the needle threader lever. Pull it down and push it up again. The machine gives a warning message if you want to sew and the button hole lever is down. Good luck!

SOURCE: Thread catching and bunching up in bobbin latch while sewing

I had the same problem where the thread was getting all bunched up on the underside. I took everything out and followed the manual concerning threading, then manually moved my right wheel to see if it would get bunched up. It took awhile, but I finally got it sew correctly again. I;m still not sure what was wrong with it. I have a singer 7470.

SOURCE: get everything threaded and when I go to sew it

Hello,
Here's some solutions to try.

* Re-thread your machine
It may be threaded incorrectly.

* Raise your feed dogs
If your machine has this feature.
* When you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting
caught in your machine.

I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: THREAD GET BUNCHED UP UNDERNEATH THE FABRIC

Hi Lou! This sounds like a tension problem--the tension on the top thread is too loose. Try using different color threads on the top and bobbin, then carefully rethread everything. Stitch a couple of inches and check the underside. If the top stitches look fine and the bottom ones are loose and loopy, and with the pressure foot down, tighten the tension. Move the knob or dial (whichever you have) just a little bit. Sew a couple of inches more, and recheck. Continue to sew and recheck, gradually tightening the tension, until you see little if any bobbin thread on the top or top thread on the underside of the fabric.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Basic Tips for All
  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.

Bobbin always jams, thread bunches up under fabric, auto winding causes a birdsnest of ruined, loose thread and most importantly it won't sew.


Your tension is not set right. The tension setting is usually around 4 and can chang e depending upon the fabric you are using. Hope this helps.

Singer sewing machine stiches not forming & thread bunching


Sounds like what is called bird nests or thread nests. The top thread is not seated completely in the tension disk.

Remove the top thread completely from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

Now, retest your machine.

Bottom stich from bobbin is bunching up.


Make sure you have the bobbin in the correct way round and make sure you have gone completely through the tension discs when threading the machine, make sure the top tension is set properly.
