Question about Singer Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Singer 6105 and the thread is birdnesting for the second time in a few weeks. I have cleaned the bobbin area, threaded and rethreaded and changed needles. All to no avail. When this happened a few weeks ago I took the machine in for repair. Fellow just changed needle and sent me on my way. So what could it be? Thank you

Double check:

Threaded with presser foot up.
Feed dogs are engaged.
Stitch length set at proper length.
Thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct order and through the proper guides.

Problem still there - take the machine and a sample of the stitching back to the repair guy and ask him to check the timing.

When you pick up the machine, take a scrap of fabric and give the machine a thorough test run - threading, bobbin winding, stitching before leaving the shop.

Where to apply oil to shuttle on White model 2037. I thoroughly cleaned all parts of the machine, rewound bobbins, made sure presser foot was up and rethreaded machine, still getting birdnesting under


If the birdnesting is on the bottom of fabric it is the top tension. If the birdnesting is in the bobbin area I would check the bobbin tension. When adjusting the bobbin tension make sure you are turning the screw in very tiny increments.

Check to make sure the machine is threaded properly and then check again. It is often times something simple.

"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

Am having continual trouble with "birdnesting" after having removed bobbin case to clean. Have checked and adjusted (and readjusted and rechecked and.... you get the picture) the tension, but no help...


Hi! Birdnesting is such a frustrating problem! In my experience, though, it's not related to tension (especially if your tension was ok before you took the bobbin case out to clean it).

I'd really check the bobbin case again for any bit of lint or thread--all it takes is just a tiny piece. Also clean out the feed dogs and under them--that entire area. Then rethread everything--change needles too--and pay attention to threading the bobbin. Make sure it's 'by the book'.

When you start to sew, hold the two tails (top and bobbin) fairly snugly in your left hand, behind the needle, while you take the first few stitches.

Let me know if this helps, ok? If it doesn't, there are a few other things we can try before calling the repairman.

Happy Sewing!

Just bought s Singer 1725. Tried a straight stitch. The thread keeps bunching up under the fabric and around the bobbin shuttle. How can this be corrected?

I have a singer-inspiration machine and it appears that the thread keeps getting caught up in the bobbin area so my thread birdnests. I am new to sewing and this is a new machine.
