Question about White Sewing White 4400 Computerized Sewing Machine

3 Answers

Thread loops up on the bottom of my piece and then binds up the machine.

I have a White 4400 Embroidery Machine, brand New, It likes to loop up the thread on the bottom of the piece that I'm working with and then creates a big mess down in the bobin chamber. I have tried to correct this problem by adjusting the tension, might work for a short period of time and then it starts to loop again. I have checked and double checked with the manuel to make sure everything is setup the way the manuel states and it still doesn't matter. I contacted White to see if they could help, they said to take it to a Tech. to have them look at it. I don't have a tech near me, I would have to drive 300 miles to one. I really hope you can help me with this.

    Just a note to anyone who might suffer the same situation. If you have tried everything like I did to stop the machine from balling up the thread, and nothing seems to work, hope that you're machine is under warranty. Thankfully mine was, and it ended up being a computer problem inside the machine itself so White replaced the machine.

Looping thread on the bottom of the fabric is most often caused by the top thread. Be sure, when threading the top thread, that the presser foot is ALWAYS RAISED.

Hi, I know this is old but thought i would put another possible answer. I just picked up a kenmore 385.19110 and was having the same issue of loose stiches under my fabric. I ended up finding the issue was that the bobbin area was packed with fluff. After i cleared the fuzzy lint out and cleaned the bobbin casing the stiches were nice and even in both sides.

Make sure that the tread is fully between the tension disks. Hold the thread at the spool and when placing it through the tension assembly pull both ends firmly.

When you increase the tension, pull on the thread while the presser foot lift lever is down and see if it gets harder to pull. If not, the thread is not between the disks or the machine is malfunctioning and must go for repair.

Large loops on the bottom are almost always caused by little or no tension on top.

Remove the thread from the machine.

ALWAYS raise the presser foot when threading the upper thread. This releases the tension disk so the thread will seat properly. Be sure to use a brand new needle and that it is the correct type needle for the project, thread, and fabric.
All About Needles
Verify that the thread path is correct. Check that the bobbin is inserted correctly and threaded through the tension on the bobbin case properly. AVOID old or bargain bin thread. You may even try a different brand of thread (some machines and threads are just incompatible.)

Bottom thread is looping on top of fabric on my Singer Futura 400 machine


Thread looping can also be caused by the use of adhesive stabilizers. During embroidery, your needle can gum up. Try floating a sheet of wax paper on the bottom to see if that might be the cause (along with the above solutions, of course).

Take off your throat plate and make sure that there is not a piece of your needle still in there, brush it out and oil your machine if it needs it. Now rethread.

When the machine is sewing with black embroidery thread, it will have big loops on either the top or bottom when sewing an outline and will also "nest" and the upper thread will break. Black...


Try a different black thread, quality can change a lot on threads. Also...black color is the worst for tension issues due to the overdying done to get a real dark black color on the thread. Looping on the top and the bottom are two different issues. Double check all threading when you have problems. Also the white is a brother pe100 clone. You may find a solution on a pe100 brother page or site.

Brother 2001 sewing and embroidery machine.


The fact that your machine is turning hard says you still have some thread inside the machine that is binding up and activating the safety device. It must turn easily before it will work properly again.
Sometimes the machine must be disassembled to remove these threads.
