My Bernina Bernette 65 has a problem with the thread bunching up every 10-15 stiches on the bottom. Some of the thread stitches on the bottom of the fabric are in a straight line, and then the thread will...


try a new needle--one that is for the fabric being sewed
then try to adjust the top thread tension again, if the stitches remain loose and the tension won't adjust then the tension knob needs to be checked to see if there is something wrong with it.
also check to make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, if the bobbin is not turned the right way in the bobbin case the sewing machine will not stitch correctly.

Bernina activa 210 won't zigzag and has bobbin issues on straight stitch


it's very possible that the machine is slightly out of time & needs to be service at a sewing machine shop
is the fabric & thread & needle compatable with each other?
did you use every thread guide when threading the machine?
is the bobbin in correctly?
is the bobbin warped?

The stitching on the back of the fabric is loose and the thread seems to be wrapping around the bobbin.


These are th problems typically caused by:

Improper path for the top thread.
Debris around the bobbin case.
Or a timing problem requiring the machine to be serviced.

Stitch


Mine is doing the same thing. It's pulling the thread up from the bobbin and making a huge knot. Any suggestions. I've done all the above checks. Brand new needle, tension is on embroidery, threaded properly and no lint in bobbin compartment.

Tension issues with the bobbn area


No, I have not had a consistent problem with this.

What looks like a bobbin issue could be a threading issue.

If a sewing machine is threaded with the presser foot down, the tension control does not capture the thread as it should. The top thread then cannot form a proper stitch with the bobbin thread.

If I forget to have the presser foot up when I thread, then I get loose stitching on top and loopy stitches on the bottom.

Pfaff varimatic 6091 sew a rag quilt with jean and flannel,I can't get my tension right it seems to be funny on the bottom stitch,where shoulf the top tension be set at 4 1/2 ,when do I adjust the bobbin...


Hi! The bobbin tension rarely needs to be adjusted. First, make sure you're using the appropriate size needle and thread for your fabric (I'd probably use either a 'denim' needle or a universal size 14) and also that the upper thread and bobbin are threaded absolutely correctly. These can throw off the tension! Also, take the time to clean out the bobbin area. That can throw your stitch off also.

If the stitch on the bottom is loose, so that you see the top threads, then the top tension is too loose. If the top stitch is too loose and you see the bobbin threads on top, then the top tension is too tight.

It helps to thread the machine with different color thread on top and in the bobbin, and then stitch an inch or so on the same type of fabric as you're using in your quilt. Check the stitch. If you need to adjust the top tension, make sure the pressure foot is down! Adjust a little, stitch a few inches, and check again. Repeat until you don't see any (or very little) bobbin thread on the top or top thread on the bottom.

If you go through all these steps, and the bobbin thread is still loose (and you've tightened up the top tension), then there is a tiny little screw on the side of the bobbin case that you can use to adjust the bobbin tension. Turn the screw just a little bit (less than a quarter turn), stitch, check, etc. Once the bobbin tension is set, you shouldn't ever have to change it.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Happy sewing!

Stiching


It's very possible the bobbin is in upside down and the thread is coming out of the lower tension. Pull on the thread and the bobbin should turn counter clockwise if it is correct . If it turns clockwise, flip the bobbin over , put the thread through the lower tension and try it again. The topside stitch is loose either because the lower tension is loose(or non-existent) or the top thread is too tight.

Stitch pattern not proper


be sure that the thread is routed properly. Then check on the bobbin holder, it may be defective.
