Top thread intermittently goes through middle of bobbin thread


If it does ok for around twenty stitches and then pulls the bottom stitch to the top there is this problem:
1. Top thread has tension added all at one time. This means the thread is getting a snag somewhere.
2. When you thread the top do it with the foot up. As you are threading make constant small tugs to see if there are any snags.
3. When a snag is found it will have to be smoothed for the thread to move smoothly.
4. Check the thread while it is flowing through the needle. If it is getting a puff ball you will need to replace the thread with a quality embroidery thread.

Brother 1034d serger skipping stitches. Stitches are loose even when adjusting the tension.


It appears that there are two issues: skipping stitches, and, loose stitches. Let's deal with them individually but first some general points to check.
1. Change both needles for completely fresh ones out of the package. Make sure that they are inserted all the way up, this is very important. The right needle should appear longer than the left one. Make sure also that you are using the correct needles for your serger.
2. Use a good quality thread with very little stretch, almost no fuzzies, and in pastel colour. Dark thread ages quicker, therefore has a shorter shelf live. A good quality sewing machine thread is also acceptable.
3. Make sure that the tension dials are clean and free of lint or other debris.
4. Re-thread the serger in this order, keeping the presser foot in the down position at all times
a) Upper looper. Ensure that the thread is securely embedded inside the tension discs. Place the thread tail under the presser foot to 11:00 o'clock and place the presser foot down again
b) Lower looper. This is the difficult one to thread but make sure that all the thread guides are properly threaded as well as the upper looper elbow. Check that the thread is lodged between the tension discs. Once the lower looper eye is threaded, place the thread in front and over the upper looper and then under the presser foot to 11:00 o'clock and place the presser foot down again.
c) Right Needle. Thread the right needle path, again ensuring that the thread is between the tension discs. Place the thread tail under the presser foot to 11:00 o'clock and lower the presser foot.
d) Left Needle. Proceed as with left needle.
e) Double check that all tension dials have their respective threads embedded between the discs by pulling firmly up on each thread above the tension dials.
f) Check that the stitch length is set to between 2.5 and 3.0, differential to normal, blade position to middle, blade is engaged, and upper looper converter not in use.
g) Set tensions to recommended setting for 4-thread overlock.
g) Make a test stitch out. How is it? Still having the same issue/s?
If yes, continue with the items listed below, otherwise have a great time serging.

Skipping Stitches:
1. Check that the looper tips are smooth. Burrs will cause problems.
2. Check that the needles match the type of fabric being sewn.

Loose Stitches:
1. Double check threading.
2. Debris caught between tension discs will also manifest itself in loose stitches. Take an 8" X 6" piece of medium weight clean and lint free cotton fabric, fold it in half length-wise and pass the fold only firmly between the tension discs from top to bottom (with the presser foot up and no thread in the tension dials).

Re-thread and test stitch. How is it now?

The thread keep bursting as soon as i start to sew although machine is thread properly


Check your thread tension isn't too tight, try on a piece of similar fabric that you are going to use, try sewing a line of stitches, if the thread snaps, change your tension number, then sew another line with your different tension number, try this until you can stitch without the thread snapping, it could be that your bobbin tension is too tight. Can you check your machine manual, it could even be the needle or the thread that's wrong for your fabric. But I would say, check your tension.
Hope this helps.

The thread keeps on snapping when i sew straight stitch?


try changing the needle
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw.

try adjusting the top thread tension-to see if the tension is too tight
rethread the machine--top & bobbin just in case the thread is caught some where
check to make sure there aren't any burrs on the needle plate

When you stitch a piece of cloth, the stitching appears to be loose, resulting in a very untidy stitch.please help immediately.i didnt get a booklet with my sewing machine


Firstly you can download a manual from the Singer website, link is
http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals, type in "W750" and click search.

Once youve got the manual downloaded, I'd suggest you print it out and get it bound in covers so it can stay with the machine.

Then trouble shoot the tension, this sounds to me like you've got insufficient or no tension on either top, bottom or both threads. You need to revise the threading up and make sure you always thread up the top with the pressure foot raised so the thread properly seats into the tension discs. Set top tension on the normal mark between 3 and 4 and make sure when you load the bobbin into the bobbin holder, that the thread gets clicked into the tension spring completely.

Now test sew again, and tighten up the top tension a fraction if it shows on the underside. You can't adjust the bobbin tension on these machines or at least the manual doesn't show any adjustment, just says to adjust the top thread tension.

As a rule of thumb, change your sewing machine's needle for each new sewing project too as this will help with stitching quality.

If you can't get it looking any better consider taking the machine back to the shop (if its fairly new) and getting it checked.

If you are planning to sew lots of things, you may want to consider buying a higher level quality machine than this one, it is an entry level machine and there is huge variation in stitching quality between the cheaper models and the higher end quality ones. Just depends on your sewing needs and desires I guess as to whether its worth investing more $$.

Sewing machine stitches upside down!


Sounds like you may need to have the tensions adjusted. If the bobbin thread is showing on top, the bobbin tension may be too loose. If the top thread shows underneath, the top tension is probably too loose. Since you are having both problems, perhaps a technician should take a look at it.

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.
