SOURCE: Thread is bunching underneath fabric

Needle in correct? Be sure your bobbin is not in upside down and turning the wrong way. Possibly the hook that the bobbicase fits in/on has been hit by a needle and caused a burr that is catching the thread as it comes around. The burr would have to be polished off or hook replaced. The machine could be slightly out of time also.

SOURCE: my needle thread keeps bunching and llooping on

If you getting loops on the bottom of your material, you need to re-thread the top of your machine. I say this because it is very rare when you will have to adjust the bobbin tension. But if you must, looking straight down at the bobbin as a clock- at 6:00 is the bobbin tension adjustment- lefty lucy, righty tighty. Hope this helps.





Make sure the needle is inserted in the machine properly- a good rule of thumb is the flat side of the needle should go to the opposite side of the last thread guide. Also make sure the machine is threaded correct
There is no standard tension for any machine to be set at. They start at four when they are brand new, however, after years and years the springs become compressed. You could start at four and then play around with it from there. If you are getting loops underneath the material, you are threading the machine incorrectly.

SOURCE: mass bunching of thread in the bobbin compartment

it had nothing to do with the shuttle, it is the upper thread is not in the tensioner. lift the presser foot up and thread the machine even if you have to hold the thread on the top and pull on the bottom to make it go in the tensioner it will help, if a machine loops on the bottom it is the upper tension if it loops on the top it is the lower tension

Bobbin thread is gathering up under Neath


Sounds like birds nest or thread nests. HINT: When threading the top thread, ALWAYS have the presser foot in the RAISED position.

Birds nest under the fabric big loops of thread top side looks good...

I'm having trouble properly threading my Elna 1010. Could you please help? The bobbin thread keeps bunching up and breaking


bunching of thread under the material is an indication of insufficient tension of the needle thread
increase the needle tension until the threads meet at the center of the materialbeing sewn

Bobbin thread bunching up.


Thread the machine with the presser foot up and see if this will remedy the problem.

If not, refer to the manual to be sure the threading and bobbin are set up as they should be.

If the bobbin thread and top thread continue to not link together, it could be the timing needs to be adjusted.

In this case, take the machine to a Brother dealer for service along with a sample of the stitching.

Hi!
There could be several reasons due to which the thread keeps bunching up underneath. 

It may be due to tangling of upper thread. Remove the thread completely from the machine, use correct size spool cap for the size of the thread spool, re-thread the machine, now remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.


You could be holding the needle thread too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.
The needle could be thread incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
The needle could be bent or improperly inserted. Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.

Please rate the solution as FixYa and revert for any clarification.

Thanks
Rylee

I had the same problem and it was so frustrating! It was happening to me because I wasn't using the right size needle. Go up a couple of needle sizes and see if that helps.
