If the top stitch is loose, then you need to tighten the bobbin tension: if the bottom stitch is loose, tighten the top tension. Hope this helps. It could also be the size needle and thread you are using for a particular fabric. Different fabrics require different notions.

The tension on my machine is off.I don't know which thread to adjust.bobbin or top thread. on fabric top stitch seems ok,bottom stitch bunches up and is loose.How do I readjust the tensions?


If the thread problem appears under the fabric, it is a top thread issue.

If the thread problem appears on the top of the fabric, the bobbin thread is the issue.

Perhaps the upper thread is not seated completely in the tension disk. Remove the upper thread from the machine, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, then rethread from the beginning. Make sure the thread path is correct. Test your stitch.

If the thread is still looping under the fabric, the upper tension is too loose. Set the upper tension to the midway point. Test and adjust the tension until it is where you want it. Preferred tension is when both threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

first ,re thread the upper bobbin, check the needle to match the fabric and the lower bobbin thread should be the same like the upper thread. If it dose not work, clean the discs tension for the upper thread.

I just got a Brother CS600i as a gift. The decorative stitches are appearing on the bottom side of the fabric NOT the top. Flip the fabric over and the decorative stitch is perfect and beautiful. To me,...


Usually it is the opposite problem of what you think, try rethreading your machine , because the bobbin thread has to lock on to the top thread. Try this test, with presser foot up, pull top & bottom threads, they should pull smoothly, now lower presser foot and pull again, they should barely move. Try your tension at 3 and your length longer. If that doesn't seat your thread in the tension discs, I don't know what will. You can always call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and ask if you got a dud and what you can do about it.

I always have problems with loading the bobbin, when I think it is loaded properly and begin sewing, it balls up and doesn't stitch properly on the back side of the fabric. Top stitch is fine, underneath...


the bobbin case has a small screw on the side for adjusting the tension, use a tiny screw driver to finely adjust the tension and sew on a scrap until the stitch looks good always turn the screw clockwise to turn the tension up and counter clockwise to loosen it

CONSEW 206RB5 TOP THREAD NOT FORMING STITCHES AND BREAKING


you have your thread tension too tight that's why it is pulling the bottom stitch all the way through it looks good from the bottom but not good on top. Its pulled the stitch all the way through the material.
I had my own upholstery shop 18 yrs and tension gets you every time.Just loosen the top tension.

Stitch is not the same on top and bottom of fabric


Phone the store and arrange to take it back...with samples of your work as evidence..........was this a Walmart, K-Mart special ??

Get a refund and buy a proper sewing machine from a reputable dealer who will give proper customer service and advice, not a cheap pick-a-box option from a supermarket....they will be the death of the small retailer and we will all be the worse for it.
