SOURCE: Sewing machine problem

I just solved this problem with much persistence and a few possible causes. Mkae sure the thread is good quality and cant shred, at least until problem is fiwed. Unscrew plate behind bibbin and check if there is any caught thread, this happens after bottom thread has been looping. Remove any and replace, wind down the needle to check it goes in the centre of hole.
And probably the most important fix it; the tension;
Have your tension set to zero, thread the machine, and when the foot is DOWN, make sure it is very hard to pull the thread. It should be easy to pull the thread when the foot is UP. If the thread is easy both ways it has not caught correctly in the tension plates, thread it again (and again) until this happens. It shouldn't be possible to thread the machine without it going in the right place, but it is. And make sure when you rethread that the foot is UP until you thread the needle-
Another problem maker I also had to fix; ever so slightly bent needle.

SOURCE: My ls2125i won't stitch

Start slowly, make sure your thread trails are long enough, I had this problem a LOT when I first started using this machine. (mainly because it was my first machine!)

Fabric bulge- Don't try to push the fabric through the machine, let the feed dogs do it. Your job is to guide the fabric.

Thread jumps- Also, like Outdoorsman said, the tension is probably off. On this machine, the tension knob is easy to find. It's the small one with the numbers on it. "0 1 2 3 4-5-6 7 8 9" 4-5-6 are your optimal sewing tensions. I usually sew on 4 or 5, depending on my fabric and type of stitch.

No stitches- Your lower thread may not be being grabbed properly/bobbin case may be jumping out of position. Open the lower case and make sure your bobbin case is secure, and the thread is grabbed properly.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Shirring fabric?

When putting your shirring elastic on the bobbin, don't thread the elastic through the bobbin holder,adjust the stitch length longer,and loosen the tension, other wise if you want to put it through the bobbin holder you have to loosen the tension screw on the bobbin holder, and then you have to adjust it back for ordinary sewing,

SOURCE: The top stitch on my machine doesn't seem like it

Hi. I think I know what you mean--the top thread looks like it's just laying across the fabric, right? This is because either the top tension is too tight or the bobbin tension is too loose. (Either condition will look the same.) Try it with a different color thread in the bobbin, you can easily see the bobbin thread cross the top thread on top of your fabric. Here's what to do:

  1. since you should hardly ever need to adjust the bobbin thread, we'll start with the top thread.
  2. Make sure you thread the machine with the pressure foot UP (opens the tension disks) but adjust the tension with the pressure foot DOWN (closes them so they will adjust). Use a size 12 or 14 needle and good-quality thread (it does make a huge difference!)
  3. With different color thread on top and in the bobbin, stitch an inch or so and check the stitch.
  4. Slightly loosen the top tension (move the dial so the numbers go lower). Don't move it a lot, just a little bit.
  5. Stitch again and check. Repeat this process, stitching, checking, and gradually adjusting the tension dial until you don't see any of the bobbin thread on the top (or very, very little) and don't see any of the top thread on the underside (or very, very little).
  6. IF this doesn't get the balance adjusted, then you'll have to play with the bobbin tension. (But generally, once this is set, you shouldn't have to mess with it again.)
  7. There is a tiny screw on the bobbin carrier that tightens or loosens a very small metal strip (where the thread exits the carrier). To tighten the bobbin tension, screw this just a tiny bit to the right. (Turn it to the right to loosen the screw, to the left to tighten it.) Again, just make a small adjustment each time and recheck your stitches.
Few things about sewing are more frustrating than stitches that aren't balanced!

Sure hope this helps!

I have a 9020 singer sewing machine I bought without a manual. I can't seem to sew without looping the thread under it. Almost in knots.


Are you saying the upper thread is knotting under the fabric as it stitches? This is bird nesting or thread nesting and is generally caused by mis-threading, the thread not being seated in the tension disk, or the upper tension too loose.

When threading the upper thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot. Verify that the machine is threaded correctly. If one guide is missed, the stitching will go haywire. Start out with the upper tension set around the midway point and then tweak it through test stitching.

Not quite sure what the stitching looks like on the bottom of the fabric. Does it look like this?

Remove the thread from the machine.

ALWAYS raise the presser foot when threading the upper thread. This releases the tension disk so the thread will seat properly. Be sure to use a brand new needle and that it is the correct type needle for the project, thread, and fabric.
All About Needles
Verify that the thread path is correct. Check that the bobbin is inserted correctly and threaded through the tension on the bobbin case properly. AVOID old or bargain bin thread. You may even try a different brand of thread (some machines and threads are just incompatible.)

Skipping stitches


Skipped stitches
1. A bent or dull needle
2. The wrong needle for your fabric
knit fabrics require a jersey or ballpoint tip. Most wovens do well with a universal tip, and specialty fibers, like leather or metallic, usually require specific needles.
3. Incorrect machine threading
4. Unbalanced needle thread tension
Start by making relatively small changes and run a test stitch to evaluate the impact. If you need to adjust the tension dial using woven cotton fabric with good quality all-purpose thread and a new needle
5.check the needle is inserted correctly. The needle needs to be pushed as far up the needle shaft as possible. It's easy to insert the needle half way, clamp it down and think it is inserted correctly.
the flat part of the needle should be positioned towards the back. If the needle is not inserted correctly, it will not be able to pull up the bobbin thread and will cause skipped stitches.
6. If the suggestions don't help then it is time for a tune-up.

The machine skips stitches and the thread is to loose.


Here's a handy web site that may be helpful:

What to Do If Your Sewing Machine Is Skipping Stitches

HINT; when encountering issues with stitching, the FIRST thing to try is install a brand new needle. Second thing, make sure you RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread, and verify that you are threading correctly.

If the upper thread is creating loops under the fabric, then tighten the upper tension. If the bobbin thread is showing on the top of the fabric, loosen the upper tension. Get used to adjusting the upper tension. It is not meant to be static. You may have to adjust it every time you change fabric, needle sizes, or thread. The standard factory tension setting is usually halfway between the high and low numbers, but that doesn't mean it will work in every instance for you. Don't be afraid to alter it and test to see how it works.

Singer ce100 is skipping stitches when needle is in center position


You don't say what you are sewing so I'm going to give you general answers in hopes it helps.

1. Needles: There is no such thing as a universal needle. Make sure you are using the proper needle for your fabric. This goes for thread too... make sure it's sized for the needle.

2. Make sure the bobbin is threaded correctly (poorly wound bobbins will cause problems too)

3 Improperly threaded machine. Make sure you area threading it correctly with the foot in the UP position.

4. If you are a material puller... shop it. It is never good to pull your fabric through the machine as you sew.

5. Stitch length. simple rule: Fat fabric.. long stitch, fine/thin fabric short stitch.

I'm not familiar with your futura abut I've noticed new home machines take a way presser foot pressure adjustments... which can cause issues too.

The machine is threaded correctly but it is not stitching on the fabric,it was stitching but leaving spaces with no stitching ,so after re threading the machine and fiddling with the tension it now does...


First I would replace the needle. Next, completely rethread the machine, making sure the thread is passing through the take-up lever. Next, remove the bobbin and reinsert it. This is a good time to also give the machine a quick cleaning, in case lint or thread is building up anywhere. Then try sewing again on scrap fabric and adjust your tension.
I hope this helps!

Stitching loose. won't thread the fabric

Machine not sewing


Make sure you have threaded the machine from right to left, it sounds like the needle thread is trapped under the lower looper thread and cannot form a stitch.........start the threading over from scratch like this:

  1. Lower Looper
  2. Upper Looper
  3. Left Needle
  4. Right Needle
Is there a diagram for how to thread on the inside of the door ?

Follow that slowly and carefully to make sure you have not missed any thread guides on the way, as each one needs to be followed through to ensure correct tension and thread progression.

If you are certain that all threaded correctly, did you have a fabric jam and pulled it loose ? If so, the timing may well be affected.

Post an update and we'll get this right.
