Possible problem is the bobbin inserted the wrong way round. I'm not familiar with this model, but if you've checked the upper threading, and it's still bunching, make sure the bobbin thread feeds off the bobbin correctly (e.g. either to the right, or to the left, as it's inserted). Hope this helps.

Top stitch is fine bottom is loose. Have tried adjusting tension but not working. If I get tension too tight breaks thread so I gradually change tension to no avail. Please help


Check your stitch sample. The loose stitches under the fabric--are they actually top thread???? Usually,stitch problems under the fabric is a result of a top thread problem. In this case, it could be bird nesting.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
Install a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot.
Rethread from the beginning.

My bobbin thread is bunching up underneath. I have taken the bobbin out and the bobbin assembly out but it still is doing it.


Gayle,

In a sewing maching, for the thread not to bunch up, there are two thread tension tighteners. One each for the bottom and the top threads. The top thread tensioner is a nut that tightens or loosens the thread tension. The thread passes under this nut. While for the bottom thread it is two screws on the casing for the bobbin. These two screws hold a small strip of metal to the casing and the thread passes under this strip.

To be able to get proper tension on both the threads you have to strike a balance on both the top and the bottom threads. If the difference is not much then you can do with varying only one of them, usually the top one for ease of functioning.

Since you say that the thread is bunching uo on the bobbin side, ie, the bottom, means that the top thread is too tight and must be loosened. You cant do it in the first go. It may take you a few attempts to get it correct, so do not loose heart if it is taking time.

All the best.

When I have run into similar problems with my older Singer, it's because there is a bit of thread caught somewhere in the bobbin mechanism that doesn't allow the shuttle to run freely. Take the bobbin assembly apart and use a bright light to see if you see any bits of thread in there.

Good luck and let me know if this works!

MegaQuilter Tension


Try at least 2 new needles first (HLX5, preferably Schmetz). If same, look for any rough edges on the needle plate and feed dog cover.
Beyond that, this does not sound like you are doing anything wrong. You should take your machine in for adjustment by an authorized technician. You should have about 1/2 to 1 full turn of the upper tension knob between too loose/ugly on back and too tight/breaking on the top.

The bobbin thread is loose and bunches up under the material i have a model 1030 and i dont remember where the tenson is


It is the dial to the right of the take up arm on top. If you go all the way to 10 and nothing happens then you'll need to take it to your nearest technician or Bernina dealership. Also its possible you may have put your bobbin in the bobbincase the wrong way. After putting the bobbin in the case and pulling the thread the bobbin should turn clockwise.
Good luck.
