    Do you mean it's not wound tight or it's not tight when you sew? Thanks.

Is bobbin wound evenly? Also, check that your needle is not bent, put a new needle in just to check it anyway (make sure the flat side faces away from you and inserted all of the way), then rethread your machine completely. Usually the problem lies in your top threading for threads bunching underneath,

How to stop bobin thread from knotting


When loading the bobbin there is most likely not enough tension on the thread letting it overlap incorrectly. Try wrapping thread around a tensioner when filling and that should help. That way the bobbin is rolled as tight as the tension on the upper thread when sewing.

The bobbine thread is not catching and I'm trying to fix it and I am not sure were to start.


start by removing the bobbin, and reinstalling, make sure the thread runs through the bobin tension plate, the little plate that puts pressure on bobbin thread to keep it tight, also look at thread and needle, if thread insn't thread through the needle, it won't catch, feelfree to call me if you need better help, devin 239-895-4845, Quality Auto Trim Inc 239-849-0015

Brother sewing machine vx1120 Ithink won't pick up bobbin thread


have you tried other thread and a different bobbin?  The tension screw on the bobin case could be too tight.

Lower thread tension is too loose but no adjustment seems to work


From your description it appears that you have tried tension settings on the upper tension control adjustment knob without success.
Check that the bobin tension is adjusted correctly by taking out the bobin complete with the spool.
Pull the cotton thread and it should be a smooth light pressure if the tension is correct. If it is tight to pull or pulls freely then adjust the tension screw which is found on the outside of the bobbin. The screw is very small and requires a minature size screwdriver. The adjustment will only be a slight turn of the screw one way or the other to obtain the correct tension(depending if it was loose or tight).
Once this is set reinstall the bobin and tread up the machine, hopefully with the upper tension set at approx."2" the machine will sew correctly.

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
