When I sew a few inches, bunches of threads come out of the bobbin case. It's like it gets clogged or something. I'm getting nowhere with this. Help!

If your bobbin is the correct one for your machine and it is wound tight, not loose and puffy, make sure the thread is going the right way when installed (over the top to the left and then placed flat in the bobbin case). Usually if the thread bunches underneath your fabric it means that the TOP thread is threaded incorrectly. Try re-threading the upper thread. Good luck!

My Janome 8050 bobbin case is jumping out of place. The thread is wrapping around the bobbin case and getting stuck, bunching up, and shutting down my sewing progress. It ties the needle up.


check for the retainer action of the bobbin case to see in there is a part broken off that holds the bobbin in the case or carrier
from what you describe , with the thread bunching up etc, I suspect that the needle thread tension is too loose and causing the problems
if so then the bunching and problems can be from the bunched thread pushing the bobbin out of position
take it in for a service and if necessary , repair

I need help with my Elna 6400 sewing machine. It is threaded, and the bobbin thread is where it should be, but when I sew it only leaves holes in the fabric.


Check to make sure that your bobbin is turning the right direction. It is so easy to get them in backwards.
If that does nothing to help, you may have a timing issue, in which case, it will probably have to be repaired. When you used the machine last, did you sew something particularly thick or break a needle? Things like that can throw the timing off. What doesn't make sense is, when you turn it off and back on again, it quits working. Can you sew more than a few stitches once you get it going? And if so, are the stitches normal, or are they bunchy Or is it turning itself off?

My Bernina Bernette 65 has a problem with the thread bunching up every 10-15 stiches on the bottom. Some of the thread stitches on the bottom of the fabric are in a straight line, and then the thread will...


try a new needle--one that is for the fabric being sewed
then try to adjust the top thread tension again, if the stitches remain loose and the tension won't adjust then the tension knob needs to be checked to see if there is something wrong with it.
also check to make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, if the bobbin is not turned the right way in the bobbin case the sewing machine will not stitch correctly.

I can only sew a few good stitches and then it starts bunching up underneath the fabric. I have watched the top and bottom thread as it goes around the bobbin case. After a couple of stitches it seems to...


It very well could have a burr in on your bobbin case, If, it was me, I would take it to Sears sewing machine department and ask them what they think it could be. They sometimes have new bobbin cases right there for you to buy, depending how big your Sears is. It won't cost you anything, at least to find out from the saleman.

The bobbin thread breaks


if upper thread is breaking
1. needle in backward
2.upper tension to tight-check manual for proper setting
3.needle maybe bent-try rolling needle on flat surface to see if it's bent & if so replace
4.thread may hang on bobbin case-check area for lent or fragments of old threads
5. knotty or cheap thread-always use good quality thread
if lower thread is breaking
1.the most probable cause of lower thread breaking is an inproperly wound bobbin
2.bent bobbin
3.lint built up in case
4. thread catching on a spring or latch

Janome Sew Mini bobbin problem


Hi, Usually wrap-ups in the bobbin area are caused by the lack of tension on the top thread. The slack arm ( shinny lever that moves up and down while sewing) has to pull the loop around the bobbin case and it does so only if the tension on the top thread is sufficient to keep it from pulling more thread of the spool.
Try this: Thread the top of the machine all the way just short of the needle eye. When the presser foot is up the thread should pull through easily. Now drop the presser foot (this closes the tension discs) and pull the tread while adjusting the upper tension control.
If everything is working correctly you should feel the drag on the thread change if not something is keeping the discs from closing.
Most Janomes aren't too difficult to remove the nose cover, usually just one screw and you can get a look at the thread path. Look for thread wrapped around the mechanism.
Sorry, no easy answer but I hope this helps.
