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.

SOURCE: My bobbin thread keeps getting tangled and

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

SOURCE: How do i adjust the bobbin tension on a tesco ej09

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.

How do I adjust tension on a Janome 1600p-qc for machine quilting?


Adjust the tension the same way as sewing regular projects. You want the top and bobbin threads to meet in the middle of the quilt sandwich. When quilting, I use a lighter weight thread so I have a separate bobbin case whose tension has been tightened specifically for quilting. For other sewing projects using a standard thread weight, I use a bobbin case that is factory set and then adjust the top thread tension for each project.

I have a Janome magnolia 7318. when I lower feed dogs to quilt it will not sew circles or feathers well. It pulls bobbin thread up on top in loops.


I've found that when FMQing, I usually need to increase the bobbin tension to keep the bobbin thread down (for this reason, I have a separate bobbin case that has the tension adjusted that is used only for FMQ). You may even need to decrease the top tension if the top thread is "pulling" the bobbin thread up.

Suggest you check your bobbin tension, pull the bobbin thread and if you feel it too loose, most likely bobbin thread not threaded correctly into the bobbin case tension plate. Do refer to your manual if you have one.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top.
Be sure that your top thread follows the correct thread path.
Set the top tension to the midway point.
Re-test your machine.

Tension is a tug-of-war between the top and bobbin threads. Correct tension is when both threads meet in the middle of the fabric. If the bobbin thread is laying on the underside of the fabric, the top tension needs to be increased so it will pull the bobbin thread up into the fabric. If the top thread is pulling the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric, then the top tension needs to be loosened.

TIPS:
FWIW, thread tension is not static. Tension will need to be adjusted probably every time you start a new project. Test it on a piece of scrap fabric from the project and adjust it BEFORE beginning the project. Remember to change the needle often--probably every time a new project is started or every 8 hours of sewing time. Be sure to use the correct type and size needle based on the fabric & thread you are sewing. Also, AVOID old or bargain bin thread!

Stitch too tight on top, too loose on bottom


This is a problem with thread tension. The needle thread is too tight and the bobbin thread is too loose. I don't have one of these machines, but there should be either screws or knobs to adjust. Look at your manual. Here's a page I found on bobbin tension.

My needle keeps breaking while I'm trying to machine quilt. It also at times will collect the thread on the other side of the quilt which makes me think something is wrong with the bobbin.


Q1.(A) Without realising, you could be 'helping' the material feed.
Q2. (A) Is the thread collecting at the start or during sewing?,,if at the start, make sure threads are clear and hold them out the back of work gently till a few stictches are made.
If during sewing, it could be tension isn't adjusted correctly, experiment.
