    yup i figured it out, the bobbin tension was the problem. Thanks!

    Have you tried adjusting both the BOBBIN tension and the UPPER tension? And are you using the correct thread, needle and stitch length? Cleaned the feed dog area, bobbin area, and the track the thread moves in around the tensioner? Thread dust builds up there and can cause loose thread and stitches.

Bobbin tension, and clean out the feed dog and bobbin area of the thread dust, make sure the tension is set correctly on the upper, and sew, sew, sew.

Loose stich on bottom of fabric


Hi. The problem is that your upper tension is too loose. It needs to be tighter in order to pull the bobbin thread up.

The top needle unthreads after just a few stiches. I have a Singer 2950 and am new to sewing.


Are you saying that the thread is breaking?

CAUSES of upper thread breaking

needle is in backwards
improperly threaded
tension to tight
needle bent or blunt
thread to coarse for size of needle
needle too long for machine
burr on needle
tension discs worn so that thread works in grove
neele too fine for size of thread and fabric
lint or dirt around bobbin case holder
irregular sewing speed
AND THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS:
threads not properly pulled back under pressure foot when starting to sew
This means, Have enough of the upper and lower thread pulled to the back and hold for the first 2-3 stiches,

Do this every time and it will become second nature and you will do it automatically

I HAVE Kenmore 385 165 24 bobbin case is loose and I can not get even one stich. Do I miss a srew to hold it in a place? Thanks for help.


if the bobbin case is loose and pops out when started. it is not inserted correctly

make sure you hold the clasp when inserting case and hear the slick into place

make sure upper thread is threaded right and the bobbin thread is even

bring bobbin thread up and pull both threads to the back about fou inches

hold threads and stich a few stiches by hand or foot pedal befor letting fo of the thread.

Looping thread on backside.


I have a 26 year old Elna and this is the only weakness it has. Before sewing, try this. Turn the wheel manually and watch the upper thread pick up the bobbin thread. Pull both back to the left. Make sure they are plenty long. This helps me prevent the tangling in the dogfeed. My Elna has a universal tension on the bottom and I haven't ever had a problem with it unless the top tension is too tight.
