Question about Sewing Machines

I have an excellence 760. I cleaned my machine. Now about every 4th stitch it clunks and there is a loop on the underside. I've changed the needle and the bobbin.

What kind of thread are you using. The most often problem today is that the thread is too thick for the size of needle. Try using a Metallica size 90 or a top stitching needle size 90
if the thread is a cotton type or a quilting thread it is often to thick to travel easily through the eye of a needle quickly to form a good stitch.

Husqvarna Viking - Thread gets caught up on the underside of material when trying to sew.


There are two things that come to mind that may be causing the problem.
1) Change the needle, for it could be bent even thought it may not look it. (This is the most likely cause).
2) Have a look just inside and check if any screws have come loose. This has happened to me. (Even the repair man did not find it.

My mums lemair Helvetia, when on zigzag only, mucks up every 4th stitch. It forms a thread loop on the underside. And what needle is the correct needle for this machine?


it's possible that the gear or cam that make the zig zag stitch is
worn or broken or loose, there's no way to know for sure with out
having a sewing machine shop look at the machine.
you mentioned the needle, when sewing on cotton you need one
kind of needle and for knits you need a different needle, so
according to what kind of fabric that tell what kind of needle has to
be used for the stitches to come out right.
also check the top tenison--on a scrap fabric,,try to tighten the top
tension and see if the helps stop the thread loops on the underside.

New Home ss2015 machine. I am having trouble with the thread tension. I have loops on the bottom. I have cleaned the bobbin case, changed the needle, re-threaded and moved the upper tension all the way up....


try adjusting the top tension to 3 & if it doesn't stop the looping, try 4 but I wouldn't go any higher than 5,, if changing the top tension doesn't help then I suggest taking the machine in to have it serviced. the bottom tension is more difficult to do,, it's also very possible that the top tension dial is messed up & needs replacing. only a sewing machine shop can tell for sure.

I get major tangles with lower thread and cannot sew. I've cleaned the shuttle and machine, changed needle, thread, bobbin and wonder if the shuttle is damaged....How could I tell? If so, is a...


It could be a mechanical problem but before you do more first check your UPPER tension. If the upper thread tension is too loose and the bobbin tension is tight you can get looping on the underside of the stitch. So pull on the upper thread and feel if there's tension there. You can try to increase the upper tension and see if that helps.

Kenmore sewing machine #16227 needle thread making big loops on wrong side of fabric. Changed needle, cleaned, adjusted/readjusted and readjusted needle and bobbin tension. Will sew a decent stitch...


It is most likely because you have it on a type of stitch but did not switch the didstance that you want the zig zag to be. Just change you stitch or your distance.

2nd needle/4th thread - threading confusion


With some sergers, but not many (singer 14u64 comes to mind), the top of the stitch will be an overedge that mates with the right needle thread, and the left needle thread will appear as a separate straight stitch. When you look at the underside of the stitch, the overedge will go all the way over to the left needle (the full width of the stitch). This is normal if you have this type of machine. Another stitch some sergers do (2/4 thread sergers) is a 2 thread chain thal looks like a lone straight stitch on both sides, and a 2 thread separate overedge.

As far as the threading of the takeup, it totally depends on your model. Always post your model number when you have questions as sergers vary greatly in design.
