I've tried everything but cotton keeps on looping from under the material


Make sure you are using a brand-new needle and that is installed with the flat side facing the correct direction.

Remove the upper thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the upper thread. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the thread tension at the midway point between high & low number.

Lower the presser foot, retest the stitch quality on scrap fabric and adjust the upper thread tension until the upper thread and bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric.

Looking for the factory sitting for the tenisons


thread tensions are only a guide
you have to adjust the needle and bobbin tensions your self to suit the thread thickness being used.
one setting is not the same for different materials and threads.
correct tension is when the upper and lower threads are meeting in the centre of the material being sewed.

How to set the tension


The carrier and bobbin are removed. Place the thread in the carrier with the thread dispensing counterclockwise. Place the thread between the metal pieces (tension). let the carrier hang from your finger and bob it slightly. It should extend one inch. If it doesn't then you can adjust it by turning the small screw slightly until it does what I said. Now, replace this assembly. The top tension you can start at three. The sewing should be an even pull between the upper and lower thread. If the thread knot is in the center of the material it is right. If the knot is under the material then raise the upper tension. If the knot is on the upper material then you should lower the upper tension. The key is to start with the bobbin tension correct and adjust the upper tension until the knot is in the center of the fabric

Thread riding on the top


Not sure what you mean by riding on top.
I would guess you mean the upper thread is in a straight visible line with the lower thread just looped around it but very slack.
If this is the case the lower tension(bobbin) needs to be tighter.

New to me. Threaded machine- started with needle in material. Stitched a couple of stitches and all the lights went on and buzzer went off.


Maybe, pull the material out of machine, and make sure that the thread didn't all jam in the bobbin area. If so, clean it out and rethread your machine, upper and lower. Now, put the material in again, but do not start with needle in the materal, make sure that it is in the highest position. Hang on to your threads, upper & lower, for a few stitches. If, your material is real stretchy or thin, put some stabilizer under it, or gift wrapping tissue paper under it. See what happens now. Good luck

I can't get the tension on my sewing machine adjusted correctly. Right now the upper tension is turned as high as it will go and I've loosened the lower tension but I still have the upper thread looped...


It is possible that you threaded the machine with the presser foot down.

This creates loopy stitching because the thead never entered the tension control. Foot down = closed tension.

Put the settings back to their normal settings.

Raise the presser foot and re thread the machine.

My material gets stuck in


check and see if the feed dogs are above the needle plate when the needle is in the upright position, then check and see if you have tension in the upper and lower tension units, check this by putting the foot down and gently pulling on the upper thread and pull the lower thread up through the plate and see if it pulls easy or hard if hard then it is good one last thing are the feed dogs in the raised position

Bobbin thread not feeding into the upper needle thread


completely unthread the machine....ensure the needle piston shaft is in the correct position and retread the upper. reinstall the bobbin and turn the machine by hand to engage the bobbin thread. Draw the bobbin thread through the stitch plate and with the needle thread, allow to trail off the back. attempt to sew a piece of scap material.

please let me know what happens at this point.

Thread on bottom, bobbin thread loose


Sounds as though you've misthreaded the upper tension. The best way to verify this would be to thread your machine, lower the presser foot on to the material. Now try pulling the thread through the needle. (Assuming your upper tension dial is set to a number greater than one). You should feel resistance. Should you not feel resistance, rethread your upper tension.
