SOURCE: keeps "birdnesting", besides rethreading, how do I fix?

when you have bunching on the bottom, you have a problem with the top thread: no tension. (and visa versa) Make sure the thread runs through the tension discs, these discs are activated when you put the presser foot down, so you want to thread the machine with the foot up, also feel if there no burrs, hooks, or whatever, so your top thread comes smooth off the spool, no jerking.

Generally bunching underneath is related to the top tension. Check your tensions - you might have to fiddle around a bit to get it right

SOURCE: singer futura XL400 thread breaking

Unthread the machine and start from scratch. After rethreading make sure your spool of thread has free play at the reel (not caught on anything) then check the thread tension make sure it's not too tight. Also check the bobbin is in place correctly and the bobbin has been wound correctly not too tight. If it is still happening it may be an adjustment to be done by a tech? Also try different threat, faulty thread can do that as well.

Why is the fabric bunching into the bobbin when embroidering with the Singer Futura


bobbin thread is too high pressure or too low pressure on teh top adjustment!

remove bobbin and turn tension screw about 1/8turn left (anticlockwise) check if still grabbing, if so - top thread turn about 1/4 turn (at embroidery ir should do automatically, but sometimes need kick...).

check if it is still grabbing on the bottom, do it grab during straight? zigzag? double zigzag? if do not - setting on the pattern need to be look at. if it tangle as well on these three - need definitely servicing...

follow manual how to adjust.

How do you thread the XL400


Take a look at page 6 of your user's manual. First, is important that your bobbin be unwinding in the correct direction (a picture is right on the machine as well).

On all machines, the thread needs to be "caught" in the area on the bobbin case at the bottom, so that it can exert tension on the bobbin thread. The slot on your needle plate is most helpful in lining the thread up, but personally, I don't then put it in the thread cutter--I find that the thread is too short when I do that. I simply put it through the slot and lay it above that, and then bring the needle down to draw the thread up above the needle plate.

A PDF version of your manual is in the \Manual directory where in installed it on your hard drive, and you can also download one free at the Singer Futura support site.

I am trying to do letter embroidery on my Futura 350 and I keep getting constant error messages about thread breaking even when there is no visible sign of that. Also, the bobbin thread side is bunching...


Check out your threading with "Machine setup" Tutorial under Help submenu and whether the thread tension control on the front panel is set to "E".

P.S. The error message about thread breakage appears not only when the thread is really broken but if the sewing speed is not changing smoothly (for example if design is not optimised).
