How do I thread a bobbin on a brother ls 1520


You will run thread around the front peg that looks like a wheel in the front of the machine. There should be a graphic to tell you which way to go. thread the thread through a hole in your bobbin leaving out about 1/2 inch and put the bobbin on the small stub that will hold your bobbin while holding the thread. push it back while holding the thread tight press the pedal. Once the bobbin is full cut both strings.

When I sew a few inches, bunches of threads come out of the bobbin case. It's like it gets clogged or something. I'm getting nowhere with this. Help!


If your bobbin is the correct one for your machine and it is wound tight, not loose and puffy, make sure the thread is going the right way when installed (over the top to the left and then placed flat in the bobbin case). Usually if the thread bunches underneath your fabric it means that the TOP thread is threaded incorrectly. Try re-threading the upper thread. Good luck!

Older Kenmore sewing machine stops due to threads bunched


Mary, just re-thread the upper and make sure the threaded is seated between the tension disc

Hi...i have been having trouble with my bobbin thread bunching up really bad underneath and causing the machine to seize up when i try to sew...it starts to do this just after a few stitches...i make sure...


Always remember that it is the opposite of what you think, it is your upper thread that is not threaded right, not your bobbin. Once you thread it right, you should be okay. You can buy a manual at sew4less.com for about $14.95

The bobbin thread breaks


if upper thread is breaking
1. needle in backward
2.upper tension to tight-check manual for proper setting
3.needle maybe bent-try rolling needle on flat surface to see if it's bent & if so replace
4.thread may hang on bobbin case-check area for lent or fragments of old threads
5. knotty or cheap thread-always use good quality thread
if lower thread is breaking
1.the most probable cause of lower thread breaking is an inproperly wound bobbin
2.bent bobbin
3.lint built up in case
4. thread catching on a spring or latch

Sewing a bunch of thread from the bottom, this stops the machine from actually sewing


Yes, it does. There are a couple of reasons the bobbin thread could be bunching up on the underside of the fabric. It could simply be that the machine needs cleaning. Take the bobbin assembly out, brush all the old lint out as best you can, reoil the machine once it's all clean, and make sure there aren't any little bits of thread caught in the bobbin assembly. Rethread the machine (carefully) and change the needle. This solves the problem usually--especially if the machine was sewing along fine and the problem develops suddenly. '
The other thing to check is your tension. It could be that the top tension is too loose. But different color thread in the top and in the bobbin, stitch a few inches (be sure to held the top and bobbin thread ends behind your needle as you start to stitch) and check. WIth the pressure foot down, adjust the tension, and stitch again. Keep stitching, checking, and adjusting until you see little if any bobbin thread on the top or top thread on the bobbin.
Another thing to reminder: use the appropriate thread and needle for the fabric you're sewing.
Let me know if this works, ok?

Sews fine at lower speed, but when you speed up, every few inches loops of thread clump up on the bottom side .


bunching lower thread is actually the upper thread not having enough tension.

Janome Sew Mini bobbin problem


Hi, Usually wrap-ups in the bobbin area are caused by the lack of tension on the top thread. The slack arm ( shinny lever that moves up and down while sewing) has to pull the loop around the bobbin case and it does so only if the tension on the top thread is sufficient to keep it from pulling more thread of the spool.
Try this: Thread the top of the machine all the way just short of the needle eye. When the presser foot is up the thread should pull through easily. Now drop the presser foot (this closes the tension discs) and pull the tread while adjusting the upper tension control.
If everything is working correctly you should feel the drag on the thread change if not something is keeping the discs from closing.
Most Janomes aren't too difficult to remove the nose cover, usually just one screw and you can get a look at the thread path. Look for thread wrapped around the mechanism.
Sorry, no easy answer but I hope this helps.
