SOURCE: thread knotting around bobbin case

hello, I had the exact same problem and could not find the solution until i took my machine to my sewing sensei and i solved my tedious problem. It was actually not a tension problem at all but a threading problem. Make sure you have threaded your bobbin correctly and that when you pull on the bobbin thread that the bobbin turns the right way. (mine must spin anti clockwise to work)  Make sure that when you pull up the bobbin thread using the needle that it is not over the feed dogs connective bar but under it. A big problem when the thread gets caught around the bobbin case wheel is that the thread is looped around the feed dogs once and that causes the thread to get caught around the bobbin wheel. In conclusion, thread the bobbin correctly and read over your instruction book before spending the money to get it fixe in s shop.

SOURCE: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

SOURCE: I have a Singer Touch N Sew Model 636. The

I had a Golden Touch 'N Sew many years ago and as the machine aged and parts became worn, step 4 of this bobbin winding diagram started to become a problem and I had to sometimes try several times before the "tabs" would release. If they did not release, the machine "thought" it was still winding the bobbin and would not sew.

SOURCE: The bobbin case on my Singer Inspiration 4210

unscrew the black plate that holds in the bobbin case and move it over to the left just a little bit, but make sure there is still clearance between the lower right corner of the case and the plate. The case should be able to wiggle a little, but not so loose it can pop out..

MY BOBBIN CASE HAS FALLEN APART AND I'M NOT SURE HOW TO PUT THE PIECES BACK TOGETHER.


Sounds like you are describing the hook. Perhaps the owner's manual would be assistance. We don't know the make/model of your machine so are really unable to help. There are some videos on YouTube that show how to install a shuttle and bobbin case, but machines differ.

The top stities is good/the bottom stities is very loose


Can be a tension problem, can be a threading problem too. First, unthread machine completely, and rethread carefully, be sure it's all just right. Check the thread guides to be sure there aren't any that are catching the thread. Also try using a new spool of thread, and a new needle as well.

If, after doing all that, you cannot find an upper tension setting that gives you a balanced stitch, on occasion, the bobbin might also need an adjustment for tension. Generally you should be able to get a balanced stitch at any setting, so if no setting is working, check bobbin tension too.

Remove the bobbin case. Pull a length of thread out from it and dangle the bobbin case by the thread and bounce it a little, as if you were playing with a YoYo. If the bobbin won't move at all, tension may be too tight. If it slides along the thread freely, it is too loose.

Get something to mark the position of the tiny screw that's on the bobbin case first and mark where it is now, so you can put it back where it was if need be. It is usually just a tiny slot screw, and you only move it a tiny, tiny fraction of a turn at one time. Clockwise usually tightens.. but check to be sure which direction does what. Then move the screw very slightly and dangle the bobbin case again to see if it's better.

Should move along the thread when you jerk the thread, but not slide freely, and not stick tightly in one place.

If adjusting the bobbin does not help, then chances are that the upper tension adjustment mechanism is worn out, and it may need to be replaced.

How can I reinsert bobbin race back into my elna su 68?


Hey I can help you with this, its a long detailed explanation though. Have you removed the bobbin holden, ie,undone two small screws and lifted out the silver bobbin case, leaving a black round thing? This black bit is the lower ring guard, you have probably undone this to remove a thread caught in the edge of the bobbin case or umderneath. Elna manuals never detailed cleaning here but it is simple enough and needs doing from time to time, i have seen big wads of felted threads and lint under guard rings when pulling apart machines. This video shows how to line up the lower guard ring, the outer casing and the bobbin case.

Elna Lotus SP bobbin case repair Removing cotton jam from Elna Sewing...

I always turn the flywheel until the opening of the lower casing is facing forward, then look at the black lower guard ring and turn it until the cut out bit is facing the front. Now look a the bobbin case, it has a couple of silver Beaks and these need to fit in between the stoppers on the outer case. You will know if lined up right as it just fits straight in, wiggle a bit left or right until its lined up. Those two silver screws have to marry up with the two holes in the lower guard ring.
Once aligned , tighten up the two screws until firm. There is a dark coloured screw too, leave it alone.

Hope,is helps, once youve done this a couple of times, its easy.

I cannot get tight tension on zigzag underneath stitch on my singer 3221


There are a couple of things to check. First, did you thread with the presser foot UP, so that proper tension is applied to the upper thread? Is your bobbin correctly inserted, and is your bobbin case inserted evenly and correctly? Review your user's manual--if you don't have it, you can download it free at the Singer website.

If you have done these things, you may need to adjust your bobbin tension. First, run a line of straight and then zigzag stitches on a scrap of fabric and take a look. It helps to have two different colors of thread, with the fabric a third color. If one side of the zigzag looks fine and the other side looks like "chicken tracks," the chicken tracks side is too tight. In other words, you need to determine whether your bobbin tension needs to be tighter or looser.

You'll need a very tiny straight-slot screwdriver. Remove the needle plate--there are two screws in it--and remove the bobbin and then the bobbin case. On the side, there are two tiny screws. One is a Phillips--leave that one alone. The other is a straight-screw, and that one regulates the bobbin tension. The rule is "righty-tighty, lefty-loosey." Only turn it 1/4 turn, then reinsert and test. If you're on the right track, you should see at least a LITTLE improvement. DON'T do any more than that--if you don't do this carefully and systematically, you'll make things worse instead of better!

Please can you show me how to put the bobbin case back to the machine in this computer


If you take a look at your user's manual--available as a free download from www.singerco.com, you'll see that yours is a drop in bobbin. You cannot remove the bobbin case, or put one in, without removing the feed dog plate. It is designed to be removed by the user; loosen the two screws, remove the plate, and the bobbin case drops right in.

Bobbin tension is too loose


Ok, go a head and set your top tension to "normal" Then take out your bobbin case and get our your tiny screw driver. Find the small screw that holds the tension spring on the case..

First carefully examine the spring (look for lint jammed under it, etc.) Then turn the screw clock wise a little bit..(perhaps a quarter turn) reset your bobbin and put back in the machine. Sew a test strip. If your stitch is better, tweek the bobbin screw a bit more. Use caution though you don't want to reef down too much and break the screw.

The bobbin thread is very loose and seems to come out much to easily


Make sure you place the bobbin thread into the case in the 9 o'clock position and slip it through the tiny slot at 12 o'clock position...Failing that there should be a tiny screw on the outside of the bobbin case that you will need to tighten slightly. Hope this is of some help. Good Luck

Thread on bobbin looping


Sounds like you need to adjust the bobbin casing tension (tighten the little screw on the bobbin case). I would also oil the face of the bobbin casing so that the thread wont snag or tug on it at all.
