This can happen when the machine is threaded with the presser foot down.

What looks like a problem with the bobbin thread is actually the top thead not seating into the tension control during threading.

When the foot is up, the tension opens and accepts the thead. When the foot is down, the tension is closed and then when you sew, the loose top thead cannot form a tight stitch with the bobbin thread and it is pulled to the bottom.

Bottom thread is all tangled when I sew. Top looks fine, then flip it over and it's a mess.


is it the top thread that is too loose and making the messy stitch or the bobbin thread. if it is the top thread coming down and making large loops that tangle increase your top tension slowly try a few stitches, repeat till you get back to normal.
If it is the bobbin thread that is tangling, first make sure you are using the same thread top and bottom, some will just not work together, then rethread the bobbin, if it is still too loose there is a little screw on the side of the bobbin casing, the larger of the two, turn it no more than a 1/10 turn to the right if too loose and to the left if too tight. I would make the starting point with a piece of tape or nail polish so you can get back to where you were if this is not the problem. My book says you very rarely ever have to touch the bobbin tension. good luck

First the top tension started being loose, so I changed the tension different ways and tried to fix it...now the thread is getting all tangled up under the fabric and is locking up. Also giving me the E6...


Do you mean the stitching on the top of the work was loose? If so, you should check the bobbin tension. Make sure you have the thread pulled under the tension plate or spring on the bobbin case. Tension should be just enough that you can suspend the bobbin in the case by the thread (think yo-yo). Upper tension should be tighter than lower. Make sure you put the presser foot down.

My machine is jamming, the bottom threading gets way too loose. and jams the machine up. I dont have an manuel or any instructions.


Ironically, often times when the bobbin thread is knotting up, it's the top thread that needs the adjustment. Loos top thread thesion will tangle up in the bobbin cassing...Think about it for a minuted. Try a quarter turn to the right on your top tension and then go fro there. There could be a problem with the bobbon casing tension adjust screw and plate. but I doubt it...Nine times out of ten when the bobbon thread is tangles the top thread is too loose.

Needle's thread gets tangled in bobbin


First, open the needle plate and make sure the bobbin area is clean and free of lint and thread.

Check the needle to make sure it is not bent and is properly inserted into the holder - usually with the flat side facing to the back of the machine.

Refer to your manual for bobbin insertion to be sure the thread is feeding from the bobbin in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up. This opens the tension control and allows the thread to properly enter.

When the foot is down, the tension control closes to the sewing setting and if the thread is not in place, there is no tension on the thread and it gets loopy.

After threading, lower and raise the needle while holding onto the thread tail. This will pull the bobbin thread up through the needle plate. Take hold of both threads and take them under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Hand walk the first stitch when sewing and this should keep the top and bottom thread from tangling.

When stopping to change the position of the fabric (turning a corner, sewing a curved seam for example), do so with the needle down into the fabric. This not only anchors the fabric so it does not slip, but prevents mis-stitching.

If you are doing everything according to the manual and are still having a problem, the machine may need to be professionally serviced.

Thread tangled in the bobine


I had this same problem yesterday. I took apart the needle tension casing and now it doesn't get tangled or stop. The only thing is the bobbin is not sewing...it looks fine on the top, but the bottom is just loose loops.

Upper thread getting tangled in the bobbin


Always remember T-N-T. Thread, Needle, Tension. Assuming its threaded properly, is the needle all the way in and facing the right direction? These symptoms also suggest the bobbin may be in the bobbincase upside down thus turning in the wrong direction. Hope this helps.
