My bottom tention of Bernina Deco 340 is to loose. How to I correct is. The top treat shows to much at the bottom


Um, the top thread is showing on the bottom of the fabric? The top tension is too loose. The two threads create a tension battle, one pulling against the other. To pull the bobbin thread up, tighten the top tension. The tension is accurate when the two threads meet "in the middle" of the fabric. On thinner fabric, you might see a tiny spot of bobbin thread on the top and a tiny spot of top thread on the bottom.

The thread is loose at bottom


When the bobbin thread shows on the right side, the needle tension is too tight or the bobbin thread, too loose, as shown in the middle drawing at right. When the needle thread shows on the wrong side, the needle tension is too loose or the bobbinthread, too tight, as shown in the bottom drawing at right.2 Nov 2008

When I finish to sew the end of string does not lacks it self and when you pull the bottom of the string everything opens


If the upper thread is looping on the bottom of the fabric as you sew, the upper tension is too loose. It could be threaded incorrectly, the upper thread may not be seated in the tension disk properly (be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread), or the upper thread tension is set too loose.

If you have checked everything and it is still looping underneath, the bobbin tension may be too loose or the bobbincase needs replacement.

Harrision gc5550. Why is bottom stitching loose?


Usually, loose threads under the fabric indicate a loose upper tension. Be sure that you RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. This allows the thread to seat properly in the tension guides. If the loose threads are still appearing under the fabric, try tightening the upper tension. The upper and lower threads should meet in the middle of the fabric.

How to thread the bobbin on a brother vx-810


The sewing on the bottom is loose because you don't have enough tension on the TOP thread. First, make absolutely sure you are threading the machine correctly. Next, while using 2 different colours of thread, tighten the top tension dial one number at a time and then checking the stitching, continue tightening the top tension until the sewing is even on the top and bottom of your cloth.

The thread underneath when sewing is too loosed


Usually thread too loose on the bottom is caused by the upper tension being too loose. The top and bottom tensions work together with the top thread making the underside of the stitch seem too taunt or too loose and the bobbin thread causing the top side of the stitch to be loopy or too tight. Select a large zig zag stick and sew a couple of inches. Then examine the stitch. It should look identical on both sides. Look to see which side is drawn too tight, the zig zag being smaller on that side with threads from the bottom threads pulled through. Then adjust the two tensions so that they make a uniform, identical stitch.

Also, when the bobbin tension is right you can hold the bobbin dangling by the thread and it won't spool out to the floor but will let loose a bit with a slight flick of the wrist. Too loose it will just spool out. Too tight and it won't drop at all. When you get that set right then do the above zig zag test to see where the top tension should be set.

Singer 301a...sews on top of fabric nicely...bottom is just loose loops of thread...it's like the bobbin is not sewing...I put 2 different colors in to see...top is perfect...on bottom of fabric I see the...


This is a tension adjustment problem. It's good to use two different colors of thread, like you did. From your description, the top thread (needle thread) tension needs to be tighter. As you tighten the tension of the top thread, you'll see that the top thread pulls the bobbin thread up into the fabric so it's no longer laying loose on the bottom of the fabric.

You'll need to have the pressure foot down when you tighten the tension. Tighten it a little, sew a practice seam, check to see what the stitch looks like. Tighten it a little more, sew, check, etc etc--until both top and bottom look the same--you shouldn't see much (if any) of the bobbin thread color on top of the fabric or the top thread color on the underside.

Let me know how this works for you, ok?
