SOURCE: Top stitch looks good, bottom stitch is loopy

this is a common problem, don't worry it's easy to fix.  take the spool of thread off, remove the bobbin.  look for any stray thread pieces in or around the bobbin case, rethread the top of the machine and when you do, follow the threading guide precisely and ---here's the trick---make certain that the thread goes between the tension discs.

SOURCE: How do i set thread tension on a 306W Singer

Top tension about 4 or 5, make sure the presser foot is up when you theread the machine, make sure you can just pull the bobbin thread through with some slight resistence, if it is too tight slacken the screw on the bobbin case a quarter of a turn at a time anti clockwise.

This happens when we forget to have the presser foot raised when threading.

What looks like the fault of the bobbin is actually the top thread not forming a tight stitch with the bobbin thread.

When the machine is threaded with the foot down, the tension control is closed and the thread cannot enter the control as it should. When you begin to sew, the tension control cannot do it's job.

If the machine is already threaded, lift the presser foot and pull about 10" of thread from the needle, or re-thread the machine with the presser foot up.

SOURCE: Singer 5430C bobbins thread always loopy

"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

My machine is a Singer Inspiration 4210. My stitch on top looks fine at first glance but it is birdnesting underneath. What should I do to correct this?


Check your top tension. It sounds like it may be too loose or the bobbin tension may be way too tight. Most likely it is the top tension that is incorrect though. The TOP tension effects the bottom side of the stitch and the bottom tension effects the top. If the top tension isn't tight enough it won't draw the thread up through the top side taunt enough and the excess underneath makes a big loopy mess.

My singer is not dragin thread from eather top or bottom please help


Download a free manual at www.singerco.com under customer service because you need to rethread totally, Once you have rethreaded it, try pulling on the top thread with the presser foot up, it should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull top thead again, it should barely move. This should seat the thread in the tension discs. Also, check that your needle is inserted right, flat side facing the rear of the machine. Good luck

My lower thread is not tight and looks loopy. I can't locate my manual right now and am in the middle of a project I need to complete today. Can you help? Seems my bobbin is very loose and thread pulling...


Download one for free at www.singerco.com and save it to your computer. You can also print it out, and when you download you can enlarge the diagrams for easy viewing when you are theading. Your top threading is not right, you can try this test, with presser foot up, pull thread, should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down and it should barely move. Also, try a new needle.

THREAD GET BUNCHED UP UNDERNEATH THE FABRIC, THE STICHES SEEM TO BE INCOMPLETE THE TOP LOOKS GOOD THAN I TURN IT OVER AND THE THEAD IS BUNCHED AND LONG LOOPS OF THREAD ARE LEFT. THANKS LOU


Hi Lou! This sounds like a tension problem--the tension on the top thread is too loose. Try using different color threads on the top and bobbin, then carefully rethread everything. Stitch a couple of inches and check the underside. If the top stitches look fine and the bottom ones are loose and loopy, and with the pressure foot down, tighten the tension. Move the knob or dial (whichever you have) just a little bit. Sew a couple of inches more, and recheck. Continue to sew and recheck, gradually tightening the tension, until you see little if any bobbin thread on the top or top thread on the underside of the fabric.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Tradition: new machine for me, jams in about 4 stitches every time I start, big loopy mess on the bottom side.


It sounds like the machine isn't threaded properly, there should be a diagram on the machine itself, where the cotton goes is usally color coded, rethread machine and see how you go
