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.

My machine isn't making a tight sew. It's very loose and seems to be from the needle tread being loose.. how do I fix this? I didn't adjust any settings prior to this happening, it just started.


Be sure to install a brand new needle.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Set the top tension to the midway point (may need to tweak this later for your particular machine). If the top thread is still loose, then tighten it up.

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

Bottom thread way too loose ...


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

Sewing a bunch of thread from the bottom, this stops the machine from actually sewing


Yes, it does. There are a couple of reasons the bobbin thread could be bunching up on the underside of the fabric. It could simply be that the machine needs cleaning. Take the bobbin assembly out, brush all the old lint out as best you can, reoil the machine once it's all clean, and make sure there aren't any little bits of thread caught in the bobbin assembly. Rethread the machine (carefully) and change the needle. This solves the problem usually--especially if the machine was sewing along fine and the problem develops suddenly. '
The other thing to check is your tension. It could be that the top tension is too loose. But different color thread in the top and in the bobbin, stitch a few inches (be sure to held the top and bobbin thread ends behind your needle as you start to stitch) and check. WIth the pressure foot down, adjust the tension, and stitch again. Keep stitching, checking, and adjusting until you see little if any bobbin thread on the top or top thread on the bobbin.
Another thing to reminder: use the appropriate thread and needle for the fabric you're sewing.
Let me know if this works, ok?

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
