How can I fix the top stich


I like to adjust with 2 colors, then you know which is from the spool, and which one is from the bobbin.

Most bobbin shuttles have a small screw to adjust the tension.

It sounds like your upper thread is adjusted too tight, but only if the loops around it (from the bottom thread) are tight and small. If those loops around the top thread are loose, then you need to tighten the shuttle screw. ;)

I notice this happens to me if I change thread types, also if I sew different thickness of cloth on the same settings. I tend to adjust until the point of breaking thread, then loosen the top a teeny bit.

Thread tension will not adjust.


Check your setting, you have your stitches set too far apart. Wherever on your machine you see the zigzag stich you will see other stich settings, look at it until you see the right amount of stiches you want.

When iam stiching the bobbin thread is not interlocking with the pool thread ,the straight stich is not stiching properly


Do you have thread in your bobbin?
Is your needle fully inserted in the needle bar?
Is it the right needle for the machine?
Is your needle damaged, bent or dull?

I have a janome 8050 sewing machine. It has started making loose stiches underneath and making a noise. I have changed the needle, bobbin, thread, cleaned the bobbin area. It will not make any stiches at...


The key to proper stitches is that tension on the bobbin must equal the tension on the upper thread spool as well. The bobbin has a tension screw that may have come loose or the thread is not properly in the tensioner. For example, the bobbin could be in backwards. Or the tension of the top could be too light and allowing the tension on the bottom to pull the thread down too much.
Open the bobbin tray and watch while you slowly rotate the hand control to see it make a stitch.
You will probably be able to figure out what is wrong.

Loose stich on bottom of fabric


Hi. The problem is that your upper tension is too loose. It needs to be tighter in order to pull the bobbin thread up.

Good Morning: My wife has a Husquvarna Viking 320 Electronic Sew Easy. I have tried to re-work the bobin and the thread through the needle. When she stiches the hem on a pair of blue jeans it stiches...


since you are doing jeans it can be on either side so lets start for the beginning, rethread the top thread making sure that the thread went through the upper tension, second remove the bobbin and make sure to thread it through the lower tension(there is a spot on the bobbin case for the thread to go through for there to be tension on the bottom) if the thread on the bottom pulls really easy by hand like there is no resistance then take it to a local dealer and have him adjust it if it feels like there is a pull do the same with the upper thread put the foot down and try to pull the upper thread(don't break a needle) if it has tension adjust the upper thread tension tighter

I HAVE Kenmore 385 165 24 bobbin case is loose and I can not get even one stich. Do I miss a srew to hold it in a place? Thanks for help.


if the bobbin case is loose and pops out when started. it is not inserted correctly

make sure you hold the clasp when inserting case and hear the slick into place

make sure upper thread is threaded right and the bobbin thread is even

bring bobbin thread up and pull both threads to the back about fou inches

hold threads and stich a few stiches by hand or foot pedal befor letting fo of the thread.

Upper thread knots up with bobbin thread when sewing a stich


Thread test
Test your thread quality to start, thread your machine and LIFT the presser foot (this opens the tension disks). Pull your top thread straight back. If you feel no tension no mater how much thread you pull, your thread is good. If that your machine passes that test, then let me know, we can go to step 2. If not, try different spool of thread, same test until you get a smooth pull (tip: always check your thread this way when you thread your machine)
Step 2:
Pull on your threaded bobbin thread while it’s in the machine. Does it pull smooth and even? If so, go to step 3. If not, try a new bobbin (bobbins get bent or distorted if wound too tight).
Clean thoroughly in the hook and bobbin case area and oil 1-2 drop is all.
Thread knotting on the bobbin can be a lot of things but here's some guidance:
Tension:
If the thread is loose on the bottom of the fabric, it's actually the top thread is too loose. Think of 2 little elves playing tug of war in your machine, one on toip and one underneath. If you have loops on bottom, the top needs to pull harder (tighten top tension)
Jamming bobbin case:
If it is damaged from turning out of place once, it could have rough spots on it that makes the thread hang on it, and keeps making it turn over and over. Use a finger nail board (fine sanding) and smoothall rough spots. Then reset the bobbin case taking care to put the notch in the bobbin case in alignment with the proper spot in the machine (basically 5 o’clock) when looking at the round area where the bobbin case goes.

Top thread wraps around bobbin


Is it birdnesting under the bottom or it is actually getting tangled inside the bobbin case? I've had my machine for almost a year and don't think I've had your exact issue. Sometimes, when you do a stich over a already stitched portion, you may have a problem with the bobbin and I just generally stop and start it again. It is important that you use the correct needle and also use a good embroidery thread and stablizer. Another thing suggested is changing the needle after about every 5 designs. Also, check the bobbin case to make sure there's no fuzzies caught in it. I use "canned air" like you use on computer keyboards. I also only use 40 weight emboidery thread for the top and actual bobbin thread for the bottom. Other threads can really jam everything up. So it's been trial and error to find the right combinations. Good Luck!
