Machine isn't sewing right. Underside thread is very loopy. Was sewing fine but thread jammed in bobbin area.


Remove all remnants of the thread from the bobbin area.
First thing first - thread inside bobbin should be tightly wound in. Insert bobbin into bobbin case and thread through slot and under the spring. Spring has small screw which regulates the tension. Hold the lot by thread like yo-yo and jerk a little down-up. It should drop just a little (not run down) - that is usually required bottom thread tension,
if not, regulate with the screw. Set top thread tension 3 and sew. If still looping under, increase the top tension higher till the looping disappears. Also try new needle.

SINGER TOUCHTRONIC 2001 How do I remove the bobbin case to try to clean out any threads or fuzz? See previous question regarding ratty loopy knotted bobbin threads on the underside of my seams.


Actually, the touch 'n sew machines, don't HAVE a bobbin case. What you see when you remove the bobbin is the bobbin basket. On other machines, the case goes in the basket, but on those there is none.

However, generally you can remove the bottom of the case relatively easily without having to remove anything else, and it will allow you to see and remove any debris that has fallen below the basket.

What you're experiencing may be because you didn't raise the presser foot when you are threading. That is the only time the upper tension disks that apply tension to the thread are spread, so that you can thread in between them. If you don't do that, either the thread isn't getting any tension at all when you're sewing, or the thread is only in the outer part of the disk, so not enough tension is being applied.

Although I have known that for many years, occasionally I forget myself--it's easy to forget.

Singer 2517c. When sewing, the bottom stitch is using to much thread, excessive amounts & the stitch isn't tight. I've tried all settings & have used a new bobbin. I'm at a loss......


Your description isn't very clear. When you say the "bottom stitch is using too much thread" Do you mean you see lots of loopy threads on top of the seam? Or do you mean you see loops on the bottom under the fabric? If your loops on the bottom, that means the top tension is too loose, you've not remembered to put the presser foot down, you have not threaded the top thread properly... Start by rethreading carefully with the presser foot UP. Then do a test stitch, remembering to put the presser foot down. If you still get loops underneath... tighten the tension.

If your loops are on the top of the fabric. loosen the top tension... then do a test seam... and if you still have loops loosen again and repeat. If you start to see loops on the bottom... tighten the tension a bit.

Good luck

I am sewing a strip of velcro on to a piece of nylon. No matter if the velcro is on the top or the bottom it is loopy and nesting on the underside. I have the Singer curvy and have the tension set on auto....


As you sew, pinch the thread between your fingers to cause a false tension/drag. Does that help? if so more tension is needed. The fabric is hard, stiff and dense. you need lots of tension to set the stitch. if you need extra tension greater then the control can give, tie a piece of fabric around the arm of machine and trap the top thread under the tie to create more tension/drag. I assume the machine is threaded correctly.. top and bottom. You could also try a thick needle in order to punch larger holes in the velcro thus allowing the thread to come up easier. thats all i can do without seeing it.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up and this will eliminate what looks like a loopy bobbin thread.

If you thread with the presser foot down, the tension control is not open to accept the thread as it is designed to do.

Then when you sew, the tension cannot control the top thread and the bobbin thread pulls the loose top thread to the bottom of the fabric.

Normal setting for the tension is usually mid-range ( 4 or 5).

Singer 5430C bobbins thread always loopy


"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

Sewing a straight seam will be going well until the bottom thread suddenly becomes very loose and loopy. The top thread is completely fine. The only clue that this is happening is the spool "jumping"...


Hello,
Here are some solutions to try.

* Increase the upper thread tension on your machine. It may be too loose.

* Decrease your bobbin tension if your sewing machine allows you to adjust it. Consult your manual.

* Reinsert your bobbin. It may be inserted incorrectly.

* Change your thread. If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for both.

Although you did this, it won't hurt to re-check. Make sure bobbin is threaded correctly.

Hope this helps.

It's possible that there is foreign debris in the top tension assembly ,thread the machine and lower the presser foot and ensure that there is tension on the top thread
