SOURCE: Thread bunches up under presser

Hi,

TRY,
Tension assembly test.
Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.)

If it doesn't work this way then you probably have a piece of thread or lint stuck inside the tension discs. To remove it, turn the tension to 0 zero and raise the presser foot.Using a small screwdriver, open the space between the discs and spray with canned or compressed air. The stuff should come out.

Do the tension test again to make sure you got everything and then try sewing again.
The bobbin should be inserted so that when you pull on the bobbin thread the bobbin turns to the left. If it turns to the right it is upside down and the thread will come out of it.

This should solve your problem unless there are scratches on your bobbin case. Check by removing the bobbin case and visually inspecting it for any groves or scratches. If you find any remove them with an emery stick and then polish it with fine steel wool.
Be sure and use a new needle when you start sewing again.

In situation like this, all you can do is adjust the tension and check for the tension spring as this is the only technical cause for bunching.

If you still find that for go a toss, i can only suggest you to show it to a tech at the nearest shop.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I bought a Singer 328K at a second hand shop. I cleaned and oiled it but the motor just hums and runs very slowly. I think the belt may need tightened or replaced. Is it possible to do it myself and...


The Singer 328K "style-o-matic" is a Class 66 sewing machine with a solid handwheel. Like the 328, and most style 66 machines, this one takes Singer Motor Belt # 193077. Any singer vendor should be able to help you and as of this writing (2010) the part runs around $10. In case you have a parts machine around or find vendors less knowledgeable here are some other machines using the same belt: Pfaff 330 Series Singer 127 Singer 128 Singer 15-88 Singer 15-90 Singer 15-91 Singer 185 Singer 185K3 Singer 206 Singer 206K Singer 223 Singer 27 Vibrating Shuttle Singer 306K Singer 306W Singer 319K Singer 327K Singer 327K Singer 328K Style-O-Matic (YOURS) Singer 329K Singer 66 Singer 66-1 Singer 66-14 Singer 66-16 Singer 66-18 Singer 66-24 Singer 66-4 Singer 66-6 Singer 66-8 Singer 99 Class Singer 99-13 Singer 99-31 Singer 99K
Hope this helps!
