Tension could be too loose. start with bobbin tension- should allow thread to pass with SLIGHT resistance. then adjust top tension at about 2-3 to start.

Bobbin issues the bobbin thread is bunching up


Check whether it is bobbin thread or the top thread accumulating under the fabric. Generally, if thread problems exist "under" the fabric, it is a top thread issue. If the problems exist "above" the fabric, it is a bobbin issue.

Sounds like a thread nesting (bird nesting) problem where the top thread is globbing under the fabric. Usually, this is caused by misthreading (confirm the thread path), the thread not seated in the tension disk (ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading!), or very loose top thread tension.

Remove the thread. Raise the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Check that the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension at the midway point between high & low numbers (this is the beginning point for tension and will most likely need to be tweaked for your particular machine).

Top thread is bunching underneath


bunching underneath is an indication that the top tension is incorrect
switching projects and materials also that attention has to be given to tension adjustment both bottom and top
the catching sometimes indicates that a tension is too tight and is pulling the needle out of line

How can you fix the under threading of a sewing


Check the ovious things first make sure you needle isnt broken... then make sure there isnt any thread twisted inside your bobin housing. make sure bobin is inserted correctly if those things dont help it could be an issue of timing in your machine... I work as an embroidery operator in a factory setting and those things usually help..

I reloaded my bobin and began to sew. The thread


Sometimes it may look like the bobbin is the problem, when it is actually the machine was threaded with the presser foot down.

Refer to the manual for your machine and recheck the direction the thread is be feeding from the bobbin and that it is going through the proper guide(s).

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up.

When threaded with the foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter. When you sew, the stitches are loose and loopy.

Thread bunches from the bottom while sewing.


Hello, sewing is a part of my income and I've encountered this problem before and managed to fix it on my own, by trying out these different things. I re-threaded the machine and checked to make sure that the tension is not too loose. Check the bobin and the sack the bobin fits into, sometimes it comes loose too, click it back into place and re-do the bobin. adjust the tightness of the stiitches, I usually put it on 2 .5 - 3. Hope this helps. Good luck to all. Nefishakh@hotmail.com

Thread is clogging up under fabric and is not catching bobin thread


I have the same problem, I fix it by removing both Shuttle hook and Bobbin Case and tested it to see if the shuttle hook rotated freely within bobbin case. I noticed the screw for the tension spring was too high and was rubbing agaist bobbin case. Just tighten screw on spring and and recheck for rubbing.
