Bobbin thread bunching on singer sewing machine...have changed needle and tensions! Help


Try a ball point 11/70 or stretch 11/70 needle. Also rethread the entire machine. Make sure the needle is inserted correctly in the sewing machine. I had this same thing happen to me recently and I found I had the needle backwards.

Why is bobbin tread jamming on my husqvarna viking juliett sewing machine


Most of the time, you should rethread the machine, take the bobbin out and put it in again and change the needle. Generally if it is jamming under the fabric, it is because something is wrong with the top ie rethread the machine.

Bobbin thread jams


try changing the needle--flat side goes to the back of the machine
check the thread take up lever & see if the thread is still on it
it's also possible that the machine is out of time & needs to serviced

I hit a pin with my Singer Stylist 7258. It jammed. I changed the needle, rethreaded it, and turned it off and on, but it snarls up thread under the fabric, and seems that the thread does not always loop...


Good that you changed the needle. Did you rethread just the needle or did you rethread the machine? You may have already taken these steps, but if not, here is what I would suggest:

1. Replace the old needle (which you did), even if it looks ok, as it may be bent or have a tiny burr or other damage that isn't easily visible. Make sure the needle is seated properly - facing forward and fully inserted.
2. **Completely rethread the machine, making sure the thread is going through the take-up lever. It can easily pop out when the machine jams, and you can't always see that the thread is out of place. That could explain why the thread doesn't loop properly around the bobbin.
3. Remove the bobbin and clean any knotted thread or lint from around the bobbin carrier. Canned air is great for cleaning the lint.
4. Replace the bobbin, making sure the thread-end is clipped neat, not frayed or knotted.
5. Try sewing on some practice fabric to make sure the stitches are going to form properly before returning to your sewing project.
Good luck!

Change needle
Clean under needle plate where feed dogs are for lint
Clean bobbin area for lint or loose threads
Rethread machine top thread make sure to get every thread guide
& bobbin is threaded correctly & inserted in the bobbin case or shuttle correctly

Having issues with my Se-270D can you help


The brother machines are notorious for jamming if there is even a tiny bit of lint in the machine. Take out your bobbin, unscrew the plate, take out the bobbin holder. Use a pipe cleaner or paint brush to brush all around inside the machine and pull out any little threads/lint that has collected in there. Replace the bobbin holder by lining up the screw toward the front. Replace the plate and screws. Make sure your bobbin doesn't have any little nicks around the edges that could catch thread. Replace the bobbin and rethread. Replace your needle (this needs to be changed often) rethread your upper thread. Test stitch.

Not sewing - jamming


Could it be that the feed dogs are down? I also have the 15358 and when I opened the bobbin area to clean it, I had this problem. Apparently, when you open the clips around the outside of the casing, it pushes the lever that adjusts the feed dogs to the right (lowering them). I didn't even realize it at first. Check your manual for adjusting this lever to raise the feed dogs. That might solve your problem.
