If the thread is looping on the top, then the problem is with the bobbin,, If the thread loops on the bottom, the problem lies in the threading.

When i try to use it it doesnt thread with the bottom thread and bunches up and breaks the top thread. i cant find this model online!!: please someone help! dont know if i threaded properly


Possible problem is the bobbin inserted the wrong way round. I'm not familiar with this model, but if you've checked the upper threading, and it's still bunching, make sure the bobbin thread feeds off the bobbin correctly (e.g. either to the right, or to the left, as it's inserted). Hope this helps.

The thread bunches under fabric when sewing on leather


WHEN YOU FIRST THREAD LEAVE THE FOOT UP AND PAY ATTENTION IF YOU ARE GETTING A SNAG WHILE YOU ARE THREADING. IF YOU ARE THEN FIND OUT WHERE THE SNAG IS AND CORRECT IT. NOW, LOWER THE UPPER FOOT PRESSURE. THIS MUST BE LOWER BECAUSE THE FABRIC IS SO MUCH MORE THICK. IF IT IS STILL A PROBLEM TAKE NOTICE IF THE BUNCH IS ON BOTTOM OR ON TOP. MORE ON TOP THEN LOWER TENSION. IF THE BUNCH IS ON BOTTOM THEN TIGHTEN THE TOP. START YOUR TENSION ON TOP WITH THREE. THE BOTTOM NEEDS TO BE CHECKED FOR PROPER TENSION. THE BOBBIN SHOULD JUST HANG FROM YOUR FINGER. IF YOU BOB YOUR FINGER IT SHOULD BEGIN TO EXTEND JUST A SMALL AMOUNT. JUST REMEMBER THE THREAD IS THICKER AND MUST BE ADJUSTED BECAUSE OF THIS.

The thread on the bottom bunches up all down at the bottom than bunches up


Usually problems like this are caused by improper bobbin winding and installation, incorrect tension, the wrong needle for project, or simply not grasping the threads and gently pulling them backwards when you start a seam.

1. Make sure you are threading the machine correctly.
2. Check your tension.
3. Check the bobbin, make sure it's wound properly and that you don't have the bobbin in upside down.
4. Check for bits of fluff and thread in the bobbin race area.
5. Change your needle, they wear out, get bent, dull... etc. You should have several different types on hand at all times.
6. Grasp both the threads gently and pull slightly backwards when you begin a seam. this will assure that your bobbin thread doesn't get all bunched up under the fabric.
7. Always test tension, needles etc., on a scrap piece of fabric before you begin sewing your project.

Hi...i have been having trouble with my bobbin thread bunching up really bad underneath and causing the machine to seize up when i try to sew...it starts to do this just after a few stitches...i make sure...


Always remember that it is the opposite of what you think, it is your upper thread that is not threaded right, not your bobbin. Once you thread it right, you should be okay. You can buy a manual at sew4less.com for about $14.95

JUKI MO 134 SERGER


How to Thread Juki MO-134 Serger from watching lady at Lyles. Turn upper blade up. Push in first then turn up.It makes threading easier. Blue Thread upper looper first. Pull thread through tension knob. Don'tjust lay it there. (She thought that is what I must have done) Orange Thread lower looper next. Pull thread through tension knob as inthreading upper looper. Adjust lower looper so it is right nextto upper looper so that their points are almost together and directly belowsewing needles. Lower looper will be in front of upper looper (I believe). With tread from upper looper pulledback, slightly lift lower looper above upper looper and thread. I think this isright. Pull thread back with other thread. Tension is the key. Remember that. Yellow: Thread left needle first.Remember tension. Pull thread through curled wire on left side of needle arm. Green: Thread right needle. Rememberabout tension. Pull thread through curled wire on right side of needle arm. b> Note: Before sewing turn the wheel tomake sure the stitches are going together correctly.

THREAD GET BUNCHED UP UNDERNEATH THE FABRIC, THE STICHES SEEM TO BE INCOMPLETE THE TOP LOOKS GOOD THAN I TURN IT OVER AND THE THEAD IS BUNCHED AND LONG LOOPS OF THREAD ARE LEFT. THANKS LOU


Hi Lou! This sounds like a tension problem--the tension on the top thread is too loose. Try using different color threads on the top and bobbin, then carefully rethread everything. Stitch a couple of inches and check the underside. If the top stitches look fine and the bottom ones are loose and loopy, and with the pressure foot down, tighten the tension. Move the knob or dial (whichever you have) just a little bit. Sew a couple of inches more, and recheck. Continue to sew and recheck, gradually tightening the tension, until you see little if any bobbin thread on the top or top thread on the underside of the fabric.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Wont sew thread bunches up


Hi!

I think you are threading the top of the machine incorrectly. Make sure that what I'm saying is correct, use two color threads to sew with- and you will see that it is in fact the top thread that is bunching.

This might be a tension problem. Could be the bobbin is not threaded in the case right. First, check the threading of the bobbin and then check the stitch.

Next, adjust the tension on the bobbin case. There is usually a small screw on the case that can be tightened or loosened. I think you may need to adjust it a bit or adjust the top tension knob, just a small bit at a time. It the top does not change the stitch, then go to the bobbin case and adjust the screw to tighten the stitch a little bit more.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
