No stitch happening

I had the same problem where there is no stitch ontop but a mess of thread at the bottom of the material, I did as suggested and changed the tension to 5 now I have no stitches at all, my bobben case seems to jam a little every few stitches, my machine is clean and free of lint.
Please help, I am trying to finish an XLR8 (ben ten) outfit for my sons b'day party.
Thanks

May sure you are using the correct size of needle and thread suitable for the fabric. make sure the thread in the bobbin and the needle is of the same weight or size. Make sure the needle is changed often - after the completion of an garment. After much use the needles become blunt and cause problems with your stitches.

Also, if the bobbin is jamming that is normally because the machine is threaded incorrectly, or the bobbin case thread is wound unevenly, or the bobbin case is not put in properly.

Try this! Just stop for a while, give yourself a few minutes to relax. When you return pull the User's Manual and slowly go over the instructions, especially the "troubleshooting" section. Also, rethread the machine and the bobbin case by carefully following the steps in your User Manual. I have found that it helps me tremendously when I have problems. Hope it help. Happy Sewing

Stitch issues


Find the tensions on your machine. Usually a screw below on the bobbin regulates the top stitches tension. Usually a numbered wheel on top--where the thread is around it--regulates the bottom stitches. YOU NEED TO ADJUST THE TOP WHEEL, test on scrap material, and if looser, you are in the right direction. If it is still a mess. turn the knob to a lower number.

Singer 7422 keeps jamming after a few stitches.


Have you checked the Bobin that the thread is in, sometimes the thread is been loaded on more on one side of it, when that happen it is very difficult to sew, check the tightness of the thread for the bottom and readjust it.

The bottom stitching looks like a line and not stitches the top stitching is fine


whether its bias or straight does not matter to machine. loosen the bobbin tension and put more tension on take up spring by inserting a screwdriver in the slot of the top thread tensioner. turn to right.

try adjusting the top thread tension and see if that helps
also try changing the thread.
also change the needle--make sure it's the right needle for the fabric
being sewed.

I have a simple and I have better luck when I use a SA156 metal bobbin. Another thing, has she watched the cd that came with the machine? This machine is a little touchy as far as threading goes, I have been sewing 50+ years. Usually, it is in the top threading that causes the problem. If, she has a question, she should call Singer at 1-800-4singer and they will walk her through all of the threading and other troubleshooting strategies. Good luck. Hope this helps you.

It is usually in your top threading, make sure that your thread match in bobbin and top threads. Mixing sometimes causes a problem. Also make sure that nothing is tangled. Also, check your needle and put a new one in just to be sure, then check your manual for size of needle and what kind of project you are doing. Hope this helps.

I have a brother vx-1125 and the top stich is fine but the bottom one is a mess, whats the best setting to have it on for a normal straight stitch?thanks


If the bottom stitching is a mess it usually means that the TOP thread is not threaded correctly. What happens most of the time is that the thread is not snug in the tension discs. First re-thread your machine with the presser foot UP and when you get to the tension discs (sticking up at the back of the machine) hold your thread like you're flossing and go back and forth in the disc to make sure you have tension on it. You should hear a little click when it's in there. (Test it...floss it on and pull it off so you can hear the click.) If the thread isn't between these discs your bobbin thread will be loopy. Finish threading the machine and you should have no problem now. Also, make sure your upper tension is set at 4 and your stitch LENGTH (on the right front) should be 2.5 or 3 for a normal stitch. Hope this helps. Let me know! Thanks for using FixYa

First 5 stitches my thread tabgles


I believe it is recommended to hold each thread until the stitching gets started, see your manual. I make sure the slack is removed from each thread just before putting the presser foot down, then just put a finger on the threads, clamping them between your finger and the sewing bed, until a few stitches are done. This can be done through the material being sewed.
