Thank you, thank you! I just tightened the screw on my bobbin case and that instantly fixed my thread tension problem. How on earth are you supposed to know about the little screw?! I thank you so much for the tip!

SOURCE: Zigzag stitch pulling tight, looks wrong

Try adusting the bobbin thread instead of the top. Always make sure to insert the bobbin so the thread is pulling in a clock wise direction. Both threads top and bobbin should have about the same resitance when pulled.

the top seam is actually the bobbin thread. dots on the underside means that the top tension is too tight. you may have a piece of thread or something gummy caught between the upper tension disks.

There should be a small screw on the side of your bobbin case adjust it little by little until you get the correct tension.

Hi! Most of the time when this is the problem the two disks that squeeze the thread under the knob that you turn to tighten/loosen the top thread is clogged full of lint and particles from the miles of thread that have been strung through it. In worst case situation the thread actually wears a groove in the disk. With slight modification you can rotate the disks so the thread runs over a fresh smooth surface, but more then likely a good cleaning is all it takes. Good Luck!

Why does top thread keep breaking?


Sounds like your tensions, both upper and lower are out of whack. Easily fixed if so...google a vidyfor your make/model machine on adjusting both upper and lower tensions.

I need a diagram of how to thread it or a problem solver the thread eeps breaking at the needle


Search the internet for:
Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

or search YouTube videos for "sewing machine threading." You may not find your exact machine, but many machines have similar threading patterns. Be sure to raise the presser foot before threading the upper thread so it will seat properly in the tension disk.

If the thread is breaking at the needle, it could be several problems:
Threaded incorrectly--#1 cause
Upper tension too tight
Install a brand new needle compatible with the fabric & thread
Make sure the thread is not too large for the needle eye
Avoid old, fuzzy, bargain bin thread

How do I adjust tension on a Necchi Lydia 510 sewing machine?


loops under fabric means top tension needs to be tightened
try cleaning the top tension dial with some unwaxed dental floss and see if that helps. if it doesn't then the tension dial may need to be replaced
also check to make sure the spool of thread is not getting caught on the spool holder
also try a new needle--one that is correct for the fabric being sewed

My Necchi 4595 has never really worked properly,.,.,the lower thread (bobbin) is very loose and then the thread breaks,,,I've tried to adjust the tension, but maybe I'm doing that wrong.


I also own 2 necchi sewing machines, my mechanical is a 4595,,
lower thread tension
to test the bobbin tension, remove the bobbin case & bobbin & hold it by suspending it byb the thread, **** it once or twice, if the tension is correct, the thread will unwind by about an inch or two.
if the tension is too tight, it does not unwind at all, if the tension is too loose, it will drop too much.
to adjust the tension,, left is loosen & to the right tighten

thread breaks
rethread the machine making sure to get all thread guides
top thread tension usually 3 or 4
replace needle- make sure the needle is inserted correctly
some needles don't work with some thread, here's a tip

Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

Top thread too loose, brings up bobbin thread. Tried to adjust, but cant get it right. Have manuel, but cannot locate it currently I have The Omega model


Hi. If the bobbin thread is coming up on top, then the upper tension is too tight. Try loosening it.

Hi. The best way to adjust your tension is to use good-quality thread, a size 12 needle, and different color threads in the bobbin and on top. That way, it's easier to see which thread is loose. Sew a few inches, check, and adjust (make sure the pressure foot is DOWN). Stitch a few more inches, recheck, and adjust some more. Just move the adjustment knob a little bit each time.

You might also want to use a bit of unwaxed dental floss and floss the tension disks. That helps get rid of any old lint and pieces of thread that build up in there.

As a last resort, you might need to adjust your bobbin tension. There is a very small screw on the bobbin case that tightens/loosens the spring/lever. If you need to adjust it, only move the screw a tiny bit. But, like I said, this is only a last resort--almost all adjustments can be done by adjusting the upper tension.

Hope this helps!

The stitches are really tight


If you can't adjust the bobbin tension, adjust the top tension. Also the lower thread needs to be pulled to your left (away from presser foot) before you start sewing, this avoids tangles.

I have never been able to find the knob you are writing about soooo_
You will need to buy a new tension assembly. They come in different sizes so the best thing will be to take it to a technician. should be able to have it replaced for under $25

Zigzag issues


Either you have the setting on a variation of ZZ which steps forward several stitches then one to the side (ZZ), so check that first.

If you are certain it is on the correct ZZ setting, and this is a recent purchase, phone the dealer tell them the issue and arrange to take it back for them to adjust, it is almost certainly ever so slightly out of timing.

Machine tension knob does not work.


Use a better quality thread. Sometime old or cheap thread never works right. Check to make sure you have the right needle for your fabric.
