Everytime I go to sew the thread always knots up


The bobbin thread must go through the bobbin tension guide before it can be picked up to the bed of the machine by the needle thread. There must be a mistake in threading the upper thread or the bobbin thread, or both. There are lots of manuals for sewing machines online and plenty of sewers who can help you in the area where you live. It's not a big problem just go to the nearest sewing store in your area and you'll get lots of help.

The upper thread in the backside of the cloth comes bundle and after few stiches the wheel stops with the thread jam in the hook of bobbin. i kept thread tension at 3, 4 and 5 ,cleaned the bobbin and...


Wow, what a challenge. There are a lot of reviews/complaints about how temperamental this model is- sewers either love it or hate it and have the same problems you describe. Since I am an experienced sewer and have lots of vintage black Singer models, ( I got rid of the newer models), I wouldn't mess with it any further...If you can, take it to a Singer authorized repair person....they can sort it out for you. Sounds like you've done everything you could so far. Good Luck.

Bobbin thread bunching, fabric not advancing


Check your manual to find out how make sure that the feed dogs are up. Those are the "teeth" on the bottom that move the fabric along. If you're not sure or can't find the manual then posting the question with machine's model number might help.

If the fabric won't advance because the bobbin thread is jamming: Check to be sure that your tension is set correctly and that your machine is threaded correctly - even experienced sewers can occasionally miss a spot like forgetting the change the loop after rewinding a bobbin. Also make sure the the thread in your bobbin is the same brand and type as the spool that is threaded. An imbalance in the types of threads can throw off the tension.

Spool is bouncing on spool pin


Get a stand alone spool holder, sometimes the spool pins arent high enough to support the thread or you can try a thread sock

My basic singer 5932 machine that I've had for about 11yrs is acting up on me....Never had a porblem til today. Probably an easy one for you experienced sewers. The thread underneath is very loose and...


Tension:
If the thread is loose on the bottom of the fabric, it's actually the top thread is too loose. Think of 2 little elves playing tug of war in your machine, one on top and one underneath. If you have loops on bottom, the top needs to pull harder (tighten top tension)
Also look at:
Thread test
Test your thread quality to start, thread your machine and LIFT the presser foot (this opens the tension disks). Pull your top thread straight back. If you feel no tension no mater how much thread you pull, your thread is good. If that your machine passes that test, then let me know, we can go to step 2. If not, try different spool of thread, same test until you get a smooth pull (tip: always check your thread this way when you thread your machine)
Step 2:
Pull on your threaded bobbin thread while it’s in the machine. Does it pull smooth and even? If so, go to step 3. If not, try a new bobbin (bobbins get bent or distorted if wound too tight).
Clean thoroughly in the hook and bobbin case area and oil 1-2 drop is all.

Bottom threads are big loops


Your problem is the top thread. Make sure you lift the presser lever BEFORE you thread the machine. After threading the machine, just before you thread the needle, lower the presser foot, and test the top tension by pulling down on the thead. If there is little or no tension, adjust the top tension to a higher number, say from 3 to 5, or from 5 to 7, and test the tension again. If you fail to increase the tension by above procedure, look for cotton that might be stuck in the tension blades and remove it. Hope this will help you

Bottom thread will not catch


Unplug the machine and remove the needle plate so that the bobbin case if fully exposed. Lift out the bobbin case and the cup that it sets in will be visible. Locate the "hook" on this cup. It is a finger with a sharp point at the upper edge of the cup. The hook is what grabs the thread from the needle while sewing.
  • Thread the needle.
  • Turn the handwheel by hand.
  • Watch the hook as it approaches the needle from right to left.
If the hook passes by the needle AFTER the eye of the needle is above it, you timing has slipped and the machine must be taken in for repair.
If the hook catches the thread from the needle, put everything back together and try threading again.
