You can also try adding more stabilizer to your design. This generally means you have to unhoop it and start over, which sucks. This machine hates to work on anything but canvas, so don't be stingy, especially if you have a lightweight fabric.

White 3100 just knots in stitching

when you say knotting, do you mean a snarl up of looped thread on the underside. If so check top thread tension

Bottom thread tangles and knots

usually a top-thread tension issue, try tightening up the top thread's tension, there is usually a disk or knob somewhere to adjust it.

My stitch does not sew on right side of fabric. I sew & see the underside of the stitch. I remove the fabric & the stitch is on the underside.... Never known sewing machine to do this. Help!!

Hi. first thing is to remove the threads from the machine, top thread and the bobbin, and replace to manufactures instructions. If still the same the problem sounds as if there is no tension on the bobbin [under] thread, adjust to a light tension. Then adjust top thread tension until the knot is in the middle of the cloth. Most times people keep tightening the top tension..

Thread is knoting at the bottom and bursting. The machine is only sewing with elastic thread. When I try sewing with straight stitch or zig zag it will knot at the bottom and burst.

Maybe you need to adjust your tension and double check your threading. I have never (in 50 years) sewed with elastic thread but I think a call to Singer customer service at 1-800-4singer may be in order.

1.check to make sure it's threaded correctly, sometimes the thread come off the thread take up lever on my mechanical sewing machine.
2.check the needle to see if it's bent
3.check to see if the needle is in backward
4.check the thread tension
5.check the bobbin to see if it's warped-i've gottin ahold of several of them

Thread is knotting up on the underside of the fabric - what do I adjust. I am using a Singer 438

Try pulling your top and bottom thread to the left side of the foot before you place the presser down and start sewing.

5932 knotting every other inch

Try oiling the hook if you haven't recently.
Check you needle plate and hook for damage, they may need to be buffed or sanded smooth.
Check your upper tension discs for lint and double check your upper thread path (proper threading).
There are other things like hook timing, needle clearance or broken check spring that may be wrong but you need a technician for those things.
best of luck!

Bobbin continues to pose problem - knotting thread underside of fabric,

In 99% of all problems with "bird's nesting" or "knotting" it is an issue of the thread coming out of the take up lever (at threading guide #3) (from the spool; through the first thread guide at #1 down to #2 and up to # 3) when the thread comes out of the take up lever, the machine can not regulate the thread and it floods the machien with thread and wraps itself around the bobbin case. OR! Your tension is too loose. Raise it. Your machine should preform perfect at tension #4 unless you are using speciality threads or fabrics.

ALWAYS be in the habit of threading your machine with presser foot up so that while threading between paths 1 and 2 you are certain to have the thread pass throught the tension disks.

This will happen on a $50.00 machine or a $5,000 machine. The thread needs to be regulated.
