Mess at the bottom means that there is more thread being pulled compared to above the cloth. reason is that in the path of the thread coming from top has a maladjusted disk that presses the thread. It can be tightened with a nut. it you tighten the nut then you can balance the tightness of the two threads. Please do that and keep trying till you get then both equal.

Keeps knotting up in the bobben won't see what is the tention setting for this machine


If there are wads of knots on the underside of the fabric, most likely it's because the top thread is not completely seated in the tension disk (called bird nesting).

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Test your machine.

The factory standard tension is placing the top tension at the midway point. However, this will change as each machine is different and will change with use.

To achieve the best tension, the top & bobbin threads should meet in the middle of the fabric.

Breaking thread and under thread is loose


Is this happening when you are free motion quilting? Do you have the right needle size, thread.

If you are talking about the thread on the bottom of the fabric being loose it is actually the tension on the top thread. The tension is too loose. You might want to check and make sure it is threaded properly and that the thread is between the tension disks. The slightest thing off will make it not operate properly.

You need to relax and take your time learning your sewing machine. Once you do that you will immediately know what to adjust or check.

Thread tension


BOBBIN TENSION: BOB THE BOBBIN CARRIER AND BOBBIN WHILE ADJUSTING TENSION. WHEN IT WILL EXTEND ONE INCH IT IS RIGHT.
TOP TENSION: USUALLY A GOOD STARTING POINT IS THREE. THE TENSION IS RIGHT WHEN THE KNOT IS FORMED IN THE CENTER OF THE FABRIC.
TOP TOO TIGHT: WILL PULL EXCESS AMOUNT OF BOBBIN THREAD UP THROUGH THE FABRIC.
TOP TOO LOOSE: THE BOTTOM OF FABRIC WILL HAVE EXCESS AMOUNTS OF THREAD. USUALLY A MESS OF THREAD.

Hi my thread is looping in a big mess on the bottom of the fabric when I sew. Everything seems to be running smoothly, the machine isn't making strange noises or anything, but the thread is very loose


Hand operate the machine while looking at the lower bobbin. Maybe there is a rough spot that is snagging the thread as it tries to loop around. If so, then nail file it until it is smooth again.

Stitch too tight on top, too loose on bottom


This is a problem with thread tension. The needle thread is too tight and the bobbin thread is too loose. I don't have one of these machines, but there should be either screws or knobs to adjust. Look at your manual. Here's a page I found on bobbin tension.

How do you thread the bottom bobbin?


Depends, it is a top load bobbon or does the bobbon go below the needle shaft. ???
Just remember that when you place the bobbon into the shuttle the tread always has to pull clockwise. So if you are holding the bobbon facing you the thread comes from the top to the right.
Lay the bobben into the shuttle making sure you pull the threads in a clock wise motion until you pull it under a metal point that looks like a flattened needle. This is also your bobben tension and then take your hand and turn the clutch wheel slowly. You will see the thread loop around the bobben thread and pull it up.

No stitch happening


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

I have similar problems

Tension


Check your tension disks, with your presser foot up, and the tension dial on zero. Sometimes a piece of cotton breaks off between the tension disks and then prevents the disks to work properly. Also make sure when you thread the machine, the thread does go through the disks and over the take up lever. After you threaded the machine, before putting the thread through the eye of the needle, lower the presser foot and while pulling on the thread with your left hand, increase the tension with your right hand. Do it slowly and you should feel in difference in tension. If this is the case, your machine should work fine.
