Question about Toyota Sewing Machines
Have tried adjusting bobbin tension, cleaning machine but still comes off while sewing.How do I stop it doing this?
Take a piece of tape and put the tape of the take up lever or take a pair of pliers and close the take up lever just enough so the thread will not come off. I had the same thing happen on one of my sewing machines.

there is a screw on the side of the bobbin case, which needs to be turned to the left or counter clockwise to loosen the tension and also change the needle because a burr on the end will cause problems with bobbin thread

Before adjusting the bobbin tension (small screw on the side of the bobbin case), try this.
Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up as this opens the tension control for the top thread so the thread can be properly seated for control when stitching.
Often what appears to be a problem with the bobbin thread is actually the top thread going loosey-goosey.

Refer to page 15 of the manual - http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html
Before changing the tension settings, be sure to thead the machine with the presser foot up as this also has a tremendous effect on the tension and formation of the stitch.

SOURCE: I have cleaned the bobbin
The "knotting up" can reveal a lot. If you have loose threads on one side or the other, the tension on the opposite side will be the culprit.
So if the threads are on the underside as you sew, it is the top tension. Top tension ought to be between 4 & 6 (this variation to allow for the different weights of fabric in your projects).
If tensions appear correct, and the thread is definately in the channel between the discs, try raising presser foot, remove thread and with a strip piece of fabric 8 - 10" (20 - 25cm) gently insert the fabric strip and clean between the discs with a see saw / to and fro action.
It may be there is lint trapped between the discs, this will keep them slightly apart and reduce the actual tension, sometimes dramatically.
If the loose threads are on the top, it is bobbin tension that is loose, it too may have lint in the spring and be giving a "false" tension.
I would not recommend fiddling with bobbin tension without being shown, it may end up with missing small screws and spring pieces.
