Be sure to install a brand new needle. If it still will not stitch, the machine has probably been knocked out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Myy machine is suddenly sewing as if it is doing a tacking stitch is it bobbin tension or something else wrong


Not sure what you mean by "tacking" stitch. Are the stitches exceedingly long like a basting stitch? That would need a stitch length adjustment so stitches are closer together.

Or, do you mean the tension is loose between stitches? You can try tightening the top tension to see if that helps. (Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread so the thread will seat completely in the tension disk or you may end up with lots of top thread showing under the fabric.) If the bobbin thread is too loose, you may need to adjust its tension.

When stitching on my Juki 1541 the top stitching is perfect but the stitching from the bobbin is loose. how to fix, I did try sighing the screw on the bobbing , did not work please help!!!!!!!


When the bobbin stitching is off the problem is usually with the top thread. Unthread and rethread the machine making sure it is threaded correctly and is securely in the tension disk. If you still have trouble try using a new needle.

I have a Brother PR-650. When machine starts to sew the first stitch, Thread comes out at the top usuall sticking up about a half an inch. What can I do to avoid this


When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot. This releases the tension disk so the thread will seat properly. Be sure the thread path is correct and that you have pulled at least 4-6" of thread tail through the needle before taking the first stitch. Begin the first stitch with the take-up lever at it's highest point. Begin sewing slowly--even hand-rotating the handwheel through the first stitch may help. Gently hold the top and bobbin thread tails in your left hand while taking the first stitch to prevent the thread from pulling backward.

Pulling the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric is also beneficial.

Top thread keeps coming out of needle. How do I thread top thread?


Be sure to pull at least 4 to 6 inches of thread through the needle's eye before beginning to sew. Pull the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric BEFORE beginning to sew.

How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread (This works for regular everyday straight stitching too not just design stitches.)

Then, BEFORE taking the first stitch, hold both thread tails with the left hand and then slowly begin stitching. After a couple of stitches, let go of the thread tails and continue to sew.

If you need instructions on how to thread your machine, search the internet for a manual:

Make + Model + the word "Manual"

or look for videos on YouTube to help with the threading process.

Machine won't stitch


If by "won't stitch" you mean that the top thread will not pick up the bottom thread, make sure you have the needle threaded properly. If the machine is a top loading bobbin, the thread goes in the needle from front to back. Same if it's a side loading bobbin (bobbin faces you as you sew). If it's a front loading bobbin (bobbin faces left of machine), the thread goes in the needle from left to right.

Sewing machine will not stitch. The thread goes into the material but does not make a stitch. I've changed the needle, cleaned the bobbin, rethread the bobbin and the top thread.??????????????


Is this the first time you have used the machine? If so you need to bring up the bobbin thread by hand before stitching. Only when both bobbin and top threads are up through the needle plate nad pulled towards the back of machine, will the machine form a stitch.

My bobbin tension thread is bunching up and not sewing right, top stitch is fine? I've moved the tension control number each way and this does not help at all. I've tried different bobbins also? Help!! ...


Recheck your bobbin and make sure it's in the bobbin case correctly.There may be arrow diagram on face plate or bobbin case. You can also check owner's manual to make sure bobbin is inserted the right way. If it isn't, the bobbin thread can "whiplash" causing the bunching you've describe. If you have smooth stitches on top, your top threading is all right. I hope this helps. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution.

Sewing machine stitches upside down!


Sounds like you may need to have the tensions adjusted. If the bobbin thread is showing on top, the bobbin tension may be too loose. If the top thread shows underneath, the top tension is probably too loose. Since you are having both problems, perhaps a technician should take a look at it.
