Try this suggestions
check the needle to see if it's bent-roll it on a flat surface to see if it rolls correctly
check the bobbin to see if it's warped
check the bobbin case to see if there's any lint or loose threads
rethread the machine-upper thread & bobbin too---to make sure the thread is not catching on anything
make sure the upper thread has a thread tail 3-4 inches long
make sure the bobbin has a thread tail 3-4 inches long
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly in the bobbin case
if you have your operation manual-check the tension settings & see if they are correct

I am using a different coloured tread on the top than on the you can see the top thread on the bottom. Why is this happening.


Your tensions are off. Most likely you can correct it by tightening the top tension until the threads meet in the middle of the fabric. Tensions are not static--you may need to adjust it when changing sewing projects using different fabrics & thread.

Loose bobbin tension


the bobbin tension is set by that small spring plate that you pull the thread under after you put the bobbin back in the carrier / holder
a very small turn of that screw makes a big difference ob the tension unlike the needle thread tension
mostly the problem ( you never bothered to mention the symptom ) is bird nesting under the fabric which is the needle thread tension not tight enough

Stitch too tight on top, too loose on bottom


This is a problem with thread tension. The needle thread is too tight and the bobbin thread is too loose. I don't have one of these machines, but there should be either screws or knobs to adjust. Look at your manual. Here's a page I found on bobbin tension.

Singer Electronic Control Sewing Machine 3343C--- The tread on the bottom of the fabric bunches up when sewing . The top thread OK What is my proble?


Hi Cat,
This seems to be a common problem, but easy to fix. Check the bobbin, and see if the thread feeds out quickly when holding the thread and letting the bobbin case drop. You should see a small screw on the front of the bobbin case for adjustment. Screw that until the drop rate is slight. You may need to adjust a few times to get just the right rate of feed.
Hope this helps, Please rate and comment, Thank You
Joe

Bottom thread way too loose ...


Upper threading is probably not correct. Otherwise you may need a new bobbin case.

Dear VeeVeeV,
when I've had that problem it was due to incorrect threading of the top thread. Sometimes it "jumps" out of one of the thread guides, particularly the round one with the tension spring. The bottom thread looping & the machine not sewing is my first clue sometimes that it's done that. good luck, Georgia
