I have juki 1541industrial machine . It started sewing upside down . Instead of nice stiching on top show side it on bottom. Any ideas


This is caused by the tension between the bobbin and needle threads being out of balance. If the knots between the stitches are on the bottom side, then you need to tighten your needle thread tension a little at a time until the knot is in middle of fabric. The reverse of this is if the knots are on the top, then either your bobbin tension is too loose or your needle thread tension is too tight. If this occurs, then loosen your needle thread a little at a time to see if knot goes down in middle of fabric. If it does not, then you need to increase the tension on your bobbin thread. This done by taking bobbin case out and tighten the small screw located in the middle of the spring on the side of the case. You only need a slight, steady pull on the bobbin thread - the more you put on the bobbin, the more you are going to have to put on the needle thread.

The stitching is not right. It looks fine on the top of the fabric, but bunches up on the bottom


Looping or bunching on on the bottom is a result of problems with the TOP TENSION.
Rethread the upper thread and adjust tension. Try again.

Bobbin thread keeps knotting


1. Do you mean that there are knots in the bobbin thread?
2. Is the bottom thread in your stitching looping and knotting.

If yes to 1. you need to rewind your bobbin fresh, and keep slight tension on the thread reel that you are winding it from. Put the handle of your scissors into the top of the reel to apply a gentle pressure while winding. Keep your eye on the bobbin as it winds and give it a nudge with a finger tip to ensure it winds the bobbin evenly top, middle and bottom.

If yes to 2, then you need to check your bobbin threading, is the thread even under tension. Is the bobbin tension set correctly. Break out your manual and revisit this to ensure it is set correctly.

Bunches of threads on the bottom


Try threading the machine with the presser foot up.

This opens the tension and allows the thread to seat into the tension control.

When the thread is not properly seated, there isn't any tension on the top thread the bobbin thread cannot make a proper stitch with a top thead that is loosey-goosey.

The top tension pulls the top thread up. The bobbin tension pulls the bottom thread down. A balanced tension is an an even knot between the stitches.

If the thread is messy on the bottom, the top tension is non-existent or is too low. The top thread tension dial should be on 4 or 5. Pull the thread out and re-thread the machine with the presser foot up. If it is still messy, perhaps there is a burr on the bobbin case snagging the thread.

Bernina Aurora 440 knotting below my fabric and into bobbin area.


Are you sure you have the bobbin the right way round in the holder....when you look at the bobbin and tug the thread, the bobbin should move clockwise.
Pull out the foot pedal and use bsr2 with the start/stop button.
Bring bobbin thread to top of work before starting to sew. This may help knotting problem

Zigzag stitch pulling tight, looks wrong


Try adusting the bobbin thread instead of the top. Always make sure to insert the bobbin so the thread is pulling in a clock wise direction. Both threads top and bobbin should have about the same resitance when pulled.

Bottom of stitch is bunched with alot of thread and machine jams


Try these time savers:
Test your thread quality to start, thread your machine and LIFT the presser foot (this opens the tension disks). Pull your top thread straight back. If you feel no tension no mater how much thread you pull, your thread is good. If that your machine passes that test, then let me know, we can go to step 2. If not, try different spool of thread, same test until you get a smooth pull (tip: always check your thread this way when you thread your machine)
Step 2:
Pull on your threaded bobbin thread while it’s in the machine. Does it pull smooth and even? If so, go to step 3. If not, try a new bobbin (bobbins get bent or distorted if wound too tight).
Clean thoroughly in the hook and bobbin case area and oil 1-2 drop is all.
