I can't sew with any thread below T-40 without the thread knotting every 10-20 stitches on the bobbin side.


sounds like the upper might be too tight and possibly the bobbin is too loose .

When I sew the top stitch is fine butthe bottom sometimes looks like a 3 sided box and sometimes bunches up. I have tried to adjust the tension. How can I fix this?


Check the bobbin tension and that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder.

I am having problems with my bobbin. Every time I load it and start to sew it gets jammed and the needle stops. There is a mess of thread around the bobbin.

The problem is likely the threading. Double check the threading, look twice or three times at the diagram. Even me, a tech sometimes threads a machine or serger wrong.

When i start to sew, my thread gets caught up on bobbin. the string gets wrapped around the bobbin then breaks the thread. it seems as though the bobbin is sitting a hair too high. ? ? ?


Make sure there is no fluff/lint within the bobbin case causing the bobbin to stand proud. Pressure from the bobbin thread can sometimes stretch the bobbin itself.. replace the bobbin with a brand new one. Double check your threading be removing all thread and starting from scratch.

Brother CS-8150 Problems with bobbin thread


Double check to see if the bobbin is in upside down and the thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the wrong direction.

I did this once after several years using the same machine, some days are just not as easy as they should be!
