Simply loosen the screw on the bobbin winder stop, no more than 1 full turn or you will drop the backing nut will fall down into your machine, move the bobbin winder stop slightly to the left then tighten the screw and see if that works. you may have to repeat this step several times until you find the right spot to stop the bobbin at the correct point.

If the thread is looping underneath, you're top tension may be too loose or the thread may not be in the take-up lever. If it's looping on top, double check that the thread is in the bobbin tension or that the bobbin tension isn't too loose.

SOURCE: Needle thread looping underneath, threads not interlocking at all

If the machine is now threaded, lift the presser foot.

Now, pull about 10" of thread through the needle.

The next time you thread the machine, lift the presser foot first.

When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens and allows the thread to "seat" into the control, then when the foot is down the control closes to the indicated setting.

When threading the machine with the foot is down, thread does not enter the tension control and when you start to sew, there is no tension on the thread.

No tension = loosey, goosey, loopy stitches underneath.

Because the lack of tension on the top thread, the bobbin thread cannot lock a proper stitch.

Having problems with the tention of both threading


Tension is a common problem for new and even intermediate sewists. Testing is about the best way to figure out what works for your machine.

Be sure you are using a brand new needle and that it is installed correctly (flat side facing the proper direction).

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread. This releases the tension disk so the thread will seat completely. Check the thread path and verify that it is correct. Missing one thread guide will create havoc!

Check that the bobbin thread is wound smoothly and that there are no thread ends sticking out of the bobbin anywhere. The bobbin must turn in a specific direction when in the bobbin case and the bobbin tension needs to be threaded correctly. (For this, you need to consult your owner's manual.)

Set the upper tension to the mid-way point. This is the default setting although it will most likely require some tweaking because all machines are just a bit different. Tweaking is a very common necessity as different threads and fabrics will affect the tension.

Set the straight stitch length to somewhere around 10 stitches per inch.

Use two pieces of medium weight fabric, like 100% cotton. Bring the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric before beginning to stitch.

Understanding Thread Tension Threads

Test your stitch. The ideal tension is when both the top thread and bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric.

If the top thread is looping or showing under the fabric and the bobbin thread appears to be running in a straight line, the top tension is too loose.

If the bobbin thread is showing on the top of the fabric or the upper thread is running in a straight line, the upper tension is too tight.

Keep adjusting until it looks like the pictures in the web links above. Remember, when you change thread or fabric weights/types, etc., you will probably need to re-test the tension and adjust.

One more suggestion: use good quality thread. AVOID old or bargain bin threads. They may save you money but will cost a lot in frustration.

Top thread covers bobbin thread makes. Stitches very thick


Remove all the thread from the machine.

Install a brand new needle.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot during the threading process and rethread the machine from the beginning. (Check that the upper and bobbin threads are threaded correctly in your machine.)

Set the tension dial to the midway point. This is a factory standard setting but each machine may vary.

Test your machine. The ideal tension is when the upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric. If the upper thread is showing on the bobbin side of the fabric, the upper tension is too loose. However, if the bobbin thread is showing on the top of the fabric, the upper tension is too tight.

Tension is not static--whenever you change projects, ie fabric, thread, needle, you may need to test the tension on some scrap project fabric first. Get the tension adjusted before stitching the project.

Make sure you clean and lubricate your machine regularly to keep it operating--consult your owner's manual and use only good quality sewing machine oil (NO 3-in-1, cooking oil, WD-40, or old brown stinky sewing machine oil).

If you are still having issues, take it for service.

Straight stitch. Top is fine loose on bottomadjusting top tension does not help how to adjust bottom tension?


Usually, if there are loose threads under the fabric, it is the top thread that is too loose. Check your sewing sample closely--you can even test with two different color threads to help distinguish which thread is which. Loose top thread will generally be pulled DOWN and show under the fabric. Loose bobbin thread will be pulled UP and show on the top of the fabric. The ideal tension is when both threads MEET in the middle of the fabric.

First, remove the thread from the machine. Install a brand new needle. Always Raise the Presser Foot and thread the upper thread, making certain the thread path is correct.

Check that the bobbin thread is threaded correctly and turning the proper direction in the bobbin case.

Set the upper tension to the midway point and sew a retest. A tweaking of upper tension may be necessary to get it where it should be. Generally, upper tension should make the majority of adjustments needed for tension correction. Bobbin tension is one of the last tension adjustments to make as it is very sensitive and can go awry very quickly.

If, in fact, the bobbin tension is off, the tension skrew on the bobbin case is where the adjustment is made. Before making any bobbin tension adjustments, mark where the skrew slot is located on the bobbin case with a permanent marker. This will allow you to reverse your changes if necessary. Be CAREFUL as TINY changes make HUGE differences in tension. Make only 1/8th turn adjustment, then retest before making another adjustment.

Remember that tension testing and readjustment are a necessity when sewing. The same tension that will work with light weight thread and fine fabric will most likely not work when using heavy thread on drapery fabric. Get comfortable with making tension adjustments to get the ideal tension for each project.

Singer xl-400 bobbin tread to loose when momograming


It means that your top thread tension is tighter than your bottom thread, and it's pulling your bobbin thread up. You loosen your top thread by turning the dial towards the "S." You should only have to loosen it by a maximum of one number; if it's more than that, you may have to adjust the bobbin thread tension.

You do that by first turning off the machine and removing the embroidery unit. Turn the tension dial to S. It helps to use a different color top and bottom thread, with the scrap fabric a third color. Run a straight stitch and zigzag stitch and examine them. If one size of the zigzag looks like "chicken tracks" or one side of the straight stitch is a straight line, it means that side is too tight. Take a look at your user's manual on page 11. If your top tension is on "S" and it is the side that is too tight, you will need to tighten the bobbin tension, to match the top tension. Tensions are a BALANCE.

The next step needs to be done systematically and carefully. If you don't, you can really make things worse. Set your mind to doing everything step by step--don't get tempted to jump ahead. Take the needle plate off and take out the bobbin case, and locate two screws on the side. One is a Phillips screw--leave it alone. The other is a straight screw--that's the one, and you will need a tiny screwdriver to adjust it.

The rule is "righty-tighty, lefty-loosey." Remember, you are trying to match the top tension! Give the screw on the case no more than 1/4 turn, reinsert and retest. You should see at least a little improvement. Keep doing that until you have balanced your stitches, and DON'T jump ahead! The difference between too tight or too lose is often a very small turn of that screw--especially when you're close.

Messy looking bobbin not filling properly


There are a couple of things that could be causing this that you can check. First, when taking the thread from the spool and wrapping it around the little metal button on the top of the machine, you need to make sure the thread is pulled up under the button (I always compare it to dental floss)- this will ensure the thread is held at the proper tension.

Next, how are you threading the bobbin itself? The thread should pass between the two disks and out through the hole at the top. Make sure you leave a tail of about 3-4 inches to hold on to.

Last, when you put the bobbin onto the spindle on top of the machine, you need to twist the bobbin until you hear it click into place. If you look at the spindle there is a little piece of metal that looks kindof like a paperclip- this piece needs to align with the little notch on the inner hole of your bobbin.

Once ce you are ready and have checked all these things, hold the tail of thread coming out of the bobbin straight up in the air while you press the pedal and begin to wind. Once you've wound a decent amount of thread on the bobbin you can snip the tail and continue winding.

i hope this helps you!

Thread tension will not adjust.


Check your setting, you have your stitches set too far apart. Wherever on your machine you see the zigzag stich you will see other stich settings, look at it until you see the right amount of stiches you want.

Brother pe770 bobbin thread is showing on top of fabric.


First check threading. If it is done properly, then it's probably because it is dirty between the lower tension blade and the bobbin case body. Remove this blade, clean, reassemble and it shoud work.
