This is my second machine, the first one did this same thing: worked for about a month then when I try to sew, the top and bottom thread are not connecting. it will act like it is sewing and when i pull off the fabric there is a lot of thread on the bottom and nothing on the top.Sometimes it will just freeze up and there will be a huge knot of thread on the bottom. maybe that doesnt make sense, but that is best way i can describe it. i am not an expert, but I have been using machines for years so I know it is threaded correctly. I no longer have a reciept so no returning it. help?

There are several reasons to this. First, your top thread is not at equal/adequate tension and may be routed improperly. Second, your bottom thread has very little tension due to either improper shuttle adjustment and/or missing screw at the tension plate. Additionally it could be caused by excessive accumulation of fluff, which prevents tension mechanism from doing its job. In summary I suggest checking top and bottom threads for proper routing and tension in accordance with machine manufacturer's specs. I am almost positive that you will find a problem there. Good luck and report back if needed.
Load your sewing machine with one color on top, threaded through the needle. Load the second color thread into the bobbin and thread.
Fold the scrap fabric in half, and sew a straight stitch at least 2 inches long. Look closely at the seam. If you see loops of the bottom color thread on top of the fabric, proceed to Step 3. If you see loops of the top color thread on the bottom of the fabric, proceed to step 4.
Loosen the top tension. Since the top tension is so tight, it is pulling the bottom thread up through the fabric. Loosen the top tension by turning the numbered knob on the front of the sewing machine counterclockwise by one number.
Tighten the top tension. Since the top tension is too loose, the bottom thread is pulling the top thread down through the fabric. Tighten the top tension by turning the numbered knob on the front of the sewing machine clockwise by one number.
Sew a straight stitch 3 inches in length. Check the stitching. It is perfect if the threads meet in the middle, and you can only see the top thread on top and the bottom thread on bottom. If it still needs adjusting, go back to step 2 to repeat the needed steps.
Using two different colored threads makes it easier for you to see which thread is being pulled.
Always use proper precautions when working with electrical machines.
Put a different color in the top, then you will see that it is your top threading that is wrong. Another thing try to keep your threads the same type ie. poly, or cotton or silk. Check your needle, too.If that doesn't work call Singer at 1-800-4singer
Check the ovious things first make sure you needle isnt broken... then make sure there isnt any thread twisted inside your bobin housing. make sure bobin is inserted correctly if those things dont help it could be an issue of timing in your machine... I work as an embroidery operator in a factory setting and those things usually help..
When you see the bobbin thread on top of the fabric this can be on e of 2 things usually. 1) thath the top thread tension is too tight or that the bobbin thread loose. Remember the saying righty tighty, lefty loosey. If you have adjust the top tension and it has helped just not enough perhaps you need to try the bottom a small screwdriver to turn the little screw on the outside of the bobbincase may do the trick. only small adjustments 1/4 turn at the most at a time to the right to start with.
Looping on the top means there is no tension on bottom. The bobbin thread generally rotates counter clockwise. The thread must get under the tension spring. The spring must be adjusted equal to the top tension. This you will have to play with to tighten or loosen as needed. When you sew in a zigzag you might want to loosen the top tension slightly. On a regular basis remove the bobbin case and clean with a qtip. On the race put one drop of sewing machine oil. Clean the bobbin case and replace.
