Problem with singer 590c. Thread bunches up & breaks or the bobbin thread wont sew. 1 time happened to get everything right & it sewed beautifully.Today I cant get it to pick up the bobbin thread.


Make sure to use a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading.
Unthread and re-thread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Set the upper tension to midway between High & Low numbers.
Verify the bobbin is loaded and threaded correctly in the bobbin case.
Begin sewing slowly and check the result. The upper tension can be tweaked so the upper & bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

If it is still not working properly, the machine may be out of time and require service.

Thread bunches up when replacing thread on bobbin


If the thread is bunching or tangling when winding a bobbin, check that you have properly threaded the winder. Especially make sure you are running the thread through the bobbin tension assembly.

I have a Singer Touch and sew 600e, the bobbin thread is all bunched up and machine jams up with thread. How can I fix this? Is there a simple setting that I am missing.


try changing the needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly in the bobbin case
make sure the top thread is not coming off the thread take up lever
make sure the bobbin is wound correctly
if these suggestions don't work, I suggest that you take the machine
to a sewing machine shop to have it checked

The thread on the bottom bunches up all down at the bottom than bunches up


Usually problems like this are caused by improper bobbin winding and installation, incorrect tension, the wrong needle for project, or simply not grasping the threads and gently pulling them backwards when you start a seam.

1. Make sure you are threading the machine correctly.
2. Check your tension.
3. Check the bobbin, make sure it's wound properly and that you don't have the bobbin in upside down.
4. Check for bits of fluff and thread in the bobbin race area.
5. Change your needle, they wear out, get bent, dull... etc. You should have several different types on hand at all times.
6. Grasp both the threads gently and pull slightly backwards when you begin a seam. this will assure that your bobbin thread doesn't get all bunched up under the fabric.
7. Always test tension, needles etc., on a scrap piece of fabric before you begin sewing your project.

:o) Smile... sewing is fun... remember?

Thread bunces up on the bottom causing machine to


I would start by looking for a problem with the bobbin tension. Do you have the bobbin threaded through the case correctly? Is the the bobbin tension set to loose? Another thing that can cause it to spool up on the bottom is if it sews a bunch of stitches all in the same spot or real close, do you have the presser foot tension to loose?

Topand bottom stitches are not even


Could be a tension issue.

Try this to see if it helps:
Remove top thread.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Start the top tension set at the midway point and then adjust.
Check that the bobbin is threaded and installed correctly.
