Thank you, thank you! I just tightened the screw on my bobbin case and that instantly fixed my thread tension problem. How on earth are you supposed to know about the little screw?! I thank you so much for the tip!

This is an answer to another person with a similar complaint. Try the suggestion below, it may fix the problem.

From your description it appears that you have tried tension settings on the upper tension control adjustment knob without success.
Check that the bobin tension is adjusted correctly by taking out the bobin complete with the spool.
Pull the cotton thread and it should be a smooth light pressure if the tension is correct. If it is tight to pull or pulls freely then adjust the tension screw which is found on the outside of the bobbin. The screw is very small and requires a minature size screwdriver. The adjustment will only be a slight turn of the screw one way or the other to obtain the correct tension(depending if it was loose or tight).
Once this is set reinstall the bobin and tread up the machine, hopefully with the upper tension set at approx."2" the machine will sew correctly.

SOURCE: how do i adjust the bobbin thread tension?

Refer to page 15 of the manual - http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html

Before changing the tension settings, be sure to thead the machine with the presser foot up as this also has a tremendous effect on the tension and formation of the stitch.

I have Bernia 180. The bottom thread is puckering. Top thread is perfect. I cannot find help in manual. Please help


Check that the bobbin is inserted turning the proper direction in the bobbin case and that the thread is threaded correctly through the tension control on the bobbin case.

Make sure the upper thread is threaded correctly. The factory standard upper tension setting is midway between high & lower number although this may need to be tweaked for your particular machine.

If the machine is still pulling the bobbin thread too tight, you can try tightening the upper thread tension. If it still isn't resolved, you may need to loosen the bobbin tension.

You might also want to check the presser foot pressure on your machine. That generally needs adjustment when changing from thicker to thinner fabric and vice versa.

How do i fix thread tension on Singer 191D300A industrial sewing machine?


Make sure the bobbin is spinning in the correct direction before you try to sew. Where is the thread collecting? Under the needle plate?
A few other things can be wrong. I will need more information.

Something is wrong with the tension. If the needle thread is laying on top, not being pulled into the fabric, the top thread tension is too tight. Superior Threads has a very helpful chart explaining tension and what affects it. Here is a link:

Have a DDL-555 bought used. The thread bunches up on bottom.


thread loops on the bottom is a sign that it isn't threaded correctly or the tension isn't set right.

Industrial machines tend to do some strange threading procedures. Are you sure you have it threaded correctly? Two of the machines I've had required that I do a 360 around one of the tension discs. I would start there.

Also some industrial sewing thread is waxed and that wax can cause you issues in between the tension discs. Raise the presser foot and take a piece of sturdy material like canvas or denim and "floss" between those discs. It will help remove wax build up that could be keeping your tension discs from working properly.

Probably a little heavy duty for a domestic machine - most don't like thread through the bobbin tension device any heavier than 50 grade.

Some tension devices have a hole that you can use to bypass the tension spring (Elna is one) which allows thread like perle cotton to be used in the bobbin. But you still can't put it through the needle (just on the underside for decorative sewing effects) .

In the past I've needed to sew vinyl tractor seats where I was stitching the vinyl to a 1/4" thick foam and after trying everything (roller foot, leather needle) on the domestic machine, I bought a Singer 20U industrial machine with 1 1/2 hp motor in a table in order to seam this weight of textile. Different system needle used and the bobbin could handle heavier weight thread.

Probably not the response you wanted though.

Fixing the bottom thread when it sews loose


It could be that you threaded the machine with presser foot down.

When the foot is down, then tension control is closed and the thread cannot seat for proper control to the needle.

What appears to be a bobbin problem is actually the top thread not having the tension needed (thead is not where it should be within the tension control) to form a stitch.

Make sure that there is tension on the thread when you have passed it through the tension unit, by making sure the presser foot is down, and then gently pulling the thread to feel tension. If there is no tension, as seems to be the case, check the tension discs inside the unit to make sure that there is no debris stopping them from closing.

Bobbin on a Viking #1+ sewing machine


Could be the bobbin case tension is too tight--are you using a thicker thread than usual? Also, check to make sure that it is the correct bobbin for your machine--several are very similar but if not exact, will not sew properly. Also, if the thread is not evenly wound on the bobbin, there would be problems. Check to make sure the bobbin thread is threaded through the bobbin tension. It may help to tighten the top tension, but if the bobbin case tension is too tight, adjusting the top tension will not completely resolve the problem. The tension is correct when the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric--this means that whenever you start a different project, you may need to re-adjust the tension.
