Question about Sewing Machines
After changing the boobbin casing the machine is now having this problem. I have gone through all the mauals suggested steps
Check the bobbin tension and make sure that the machine is threaded right. There are times that the thread is out of the tension disks or up take and we do not notice because we just threaded the machine.

This happened to me and I discovered that my presser foot was stuck up. (LOL) I was using embroidery and the needle was actually brushing against the raised presser foot. So, I turned machine off, removed embroidery part and checked the presser foot switch. It was not moving. Well, I put the machine on regular sewing and just turned the wheel a few times and the presser foot reset. When I went back to embroidery all was fine (and still is). so, check yours.

Lift the presser foot when you thread the machine and this should resolve the problem.
When the foot is up, the tension is open and can accept the thread as it should.
When the foot is down, the tension can control the flow of thread according to the setting you have selected.

Meaning you have adjusted the tension for the top thread as well as the bobbin?
Use two distinct colors of thread - one for the top and one for the bottom.
Thread the machine with the presser foot up.
The two threads should meet in the middle of the stitch with neither obvious on the opposite side of the seam.
Set the top thread tension to 4 and adjust the bobbin as needed.

It is usually your top threading causing the problem. Totally rethread, make sure that the thread is not tangled, put in a new needle, now with the presser foot up, pull on your top thread, it should pull smoothly, then lower the presser foot, it should barely move. This should seat the thread in the tension discs. It probably would not be a bad idea to clean and oil your machine now, too. I don't know if you would want to, but I have taken off the throat plate and found lots of lint in there that I wouldn't be able to see otherwise. It almost looks like felt sometimes and there shouldn't be any "felt" there. I hope I helped you.

Think in opposites... the top stitch is formed by the bottom thread tension and the bottom of the stitch by the top. So either the bobbin thread is too tight or the top thread is too loose. Check the bobbin thread first as that is the one most overlook. It should come out of the bobbin without having to yank it hard but it should have a little resistance.
