SOURCE: sewing machine won't pick up bobbin thread

open the bobbin case and see if the hook is turning, if it is it is just a timing problem with the hook and needle, if it isn't tuning you may have a broken gear or timing belt.....It eill need to be looked at or adj by someone who repairs them....Daniel

Hello there, loosen your top thread tension,if it looping on top of the material the tension is way too tight, you will also find changing the thread size to smaller thread, the top tension will also reduce,depending on application a good size thread to use is 25 grade,bobbin tension should have just a slight amount of drag as the top thread and bottom work against each other when sewing.

Hello

Remove your needle and reinsert it to make sure it's straight and secure. Make sure the needle is in the "up" position (press the needle position button if it's not), power off the machine, and loosen the needle clamp screw. Pull the needle out and make sure it isn't bent. To reinsert it, push it back up into the clamp, flat side facing the back. Tighten the clamp screw to secure the needle.

The best solution might be a Tune-up of your machine(servicing)..you will have to take it in for a repairer for took things to be adjusted, oiled and set back to factory spec's and it will work fine again

This might cost you about 60 dollars

adjust your tension.You probably did not wind your bobbin properly as well.Make sure you oil your machine every month or so and make sure your bobbin is seated properly before you sew.
Go slower with the pressure foot speed and use the right needle.ALWAYS test on scrap of your sewing material first!!!

I have this machine for like 2 years and can do 2-5oz cowhide and buffalo leather on it (no joke, and it works FLAWLESSLY) inside it has full steel construction,just needs regular oiling compared to pro machines and easily made a few grand $$$ with it while my pro machine is getting repaired (I don't even bother with my pro machine anymore) But you MUST oil it every month and use the RIGHT needle and adjust your tension properly
Also pull out the thread a good 6 inches from the needle and bobbin before dropping the pressure foot and sewing.
Best $70 bucks (WITH TAX) I spent hell,the leather I use costs more than the machine!

SOURCE: The stiches are looping on

There is an adjustment on the bobbin holder - the little screw on the plate. Make sure that the bobbin is tightly wound and that it is correctly inserted, the thread must double back on itself coming out of the holder.

The tension of the thread on top and bottom is not equal. How do you adjust the bottom thread to make it equal to the top?


Hello

First locate the sewing machine tension gauge. Sometimes its called a knob or a button or found on your Touch Screen if you have a computerized machine. Refer to your manual if you can't find it.

Either your needle thread is too tight or your bobbin thread is too loose.

First check that your bobbin thread hasn't slipped out of its tension spring in the bobbin case.

If the bobbin thread is correctly threaded through the tension spring, then decrease your needle tension by 1 number. Test by stitching several inches on your small quilt sandwich. Keep decreasing the tension until no needle thread is visible on the quilt top.

If sewing machine tension problems occur during the middle of a quilting session, again, first refer to the checklist above. Once you're satisfied that your sewing machine is threaded properly and your needle is not the culprit, then adjust the tension as outlined above.

If you have just started testing your quilting thread choices and you are using different threads for the needle and bobbin, you will in all probability make adjustments to your tension.

Make a small quilt sandwich from the materials used in your quilt to make this sandwich. It doesn't have to be pretty or even pin basted. It should be just big enough to test some of the stitching you plan to do on your quilt.

I have a Tacsew T11-115 and I do not have an instruction book. I need to see if I have it treaded correctly and how to adjust the bobbin tension. The top thread is laying on the fabric and the bobbin...


For all sewing machines, if the bobbin thread is showing on the top surface, then the top tension is probably too tight. Turn the tension indicator to the left by half a number to a lower value. (So that if 5 was lined up with the dot initially, then go to 4.5 lined up with the dot).

See this article for some clear pictures of thread tension adjustments: http://www.ca.uky.edu/HES/fcs/FACTSHTS/CT-MMB-213.pdf . If you can find it the Singer Sewing Book is a good reference http://www.amazon.com/Singer-Sewing-Book-Gladys-Cunningham/dp/0307098702 .

This site, http://www.allbrands.com/products/abc0762.html , may be able to find and send you a manual to the TacSew T11-115. They have the T11-155 for sale.

I hope this helps.

I amhaving trouble with the thread brahing and I don;t know if it is the tension. Which way should the pobbing turn right or left and how do you set the tension For my Singer sewing machine


Check the upper threading and make sure it is threaded correctly. When you pull on the thread before it goes through the needle does it give a bit or does it break? If it is breaking when you pull then the tension is way too tight or it is threaded incorrectly. Make sure it isn't looped around some guide along the line too.

For the bobbin thread... when it is in the bobbin case outside of the machine dangle it by the thread. It should hang there until you flick your wrist a bit, which should cause some thread to release and drop the bobbin down towards the floor a bit. (If it just pulls out right to the floor it is too loose). Most bobbin tension is tightened by a small screw on the bobbin case near where the thread comes though. Breaking thread would not be from the bobbin thread being too loose. Too loose would cause looping on top side of the stitch not breakage.

Make sure the bobbin is in correctly. You should feel and hear a slight "click" when the bobbin goes in correctly.

I have a Janome 8048. Here's my problem: As I sew I notice that the stitches on the top of the fabric look the way they should on the bottom side and when I take the material off the machine and flip it...


I haven't sewn in years. A sewing machine has a tension control on top and on the bobbin. If the intersection of the top and bottom threads is not in the middle of the sewn material, you have to adjust your tension.
In your case, what I think you are saying is that the stitch on top is just a straight line and on the back it disappears into the fabric.
To correct this, lower the top tension by loosening the tension adjuster on the thread where the thread loops around the small pulley.
Also, you could tighten the tension on the bobbin by slightly tightening the small screw on the side of the bobbin.

I have a brother project runway limited edition sewing machine and there is a constant jam with the bobbin threading and I have cleaned it,removed the sewing plate and everything I can possibly think of....


Hi

The usual cause is that there is a problem with the upper threads, often it is not caught in the tension discs. When you thread the machine, make sure that the presser foot is raised - this causes the tension discs to open so the thread can seat itself properly.

Another possibility is that the thread isn't in the take up lever - the hook thingy that goes up and down. Sometimes the thread will just slip out.

Thanks
