The tension in the wires is badly adjusted - either the bobbin wire is too loose or the needle wire is too tight. Start by loosening the tension in the needle wire.if the sew appears loose then tighten the bobbin wire. Several tests will be needed to achieve perfect tension.

When bobbin thread shows on top, it means that there's too much tension on top thread.

1. Check if top thread unwinds and feeds up well. Make sure that the spool doesn't slide off horizontal spool pin. If it falls – it creates too high tread tension by not giving the thread to unwind properly.
2. Check that the needle is good, not sticky, and allows the thread to come through it easily. It should have a large enough eye.

SOURCE: top thread wraps around bobbin

Is it birdnesting under the bottom or it is actually getting tangled inside the bobbin case? I've had my machine for almost a year and don't think I've had your exact issue. Sometimes, when you do a stich over a already stitched portion, you may have a problem with the bobbin and I just generally stop and start it again. It is important that you use the correct needle and also use a good embroidery thread and stablizer. Another thing suggested is changing the needle after about every 5 designs. Also, check the bobbin case to make sure there's no fuzzies caught in it. I use "canned air" like you use on computer keyboards. I also only use 40 weight emboidery thread for the top and actual bobbin thread for the bottom. Other threads can really jam everything up. So it's been trial and error to find the right combinations. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Brother PE-150V bobbin thread

For embroidery, and zig-zag, and because the needle makes side movements, it needs more needle thread.
So try to keep you needle thread not very tight,
and tight up your bobbin case tension more, so that the two threads meet under the meterial.

E1 means that the main motor is working to hard so the machine is keeping you from burning it up, make sure the handwheel feels smooth when turning if it doesnt clean your hook area and take the side cover off and make sure no thread is caught in the take-up lever

Bobbin thread shows on embroidery pattern


The bobbin thread is being pulled too hard by the top thread. The idea is to get an even pull similar to a tug of war. When it is even the thread will form a knot in the middle of the fabric.
To fix this so the top thread isn't pulling too hard lower the tension of the top thread. This should fix it.

Adjust tension


The tension of the top thread and bobbin thread are in a "tug of war". If the top is "winning" or too high then the bottom thread will be showing on the top of the fabric. If the top is "loosing" or too loose then the top thread will be pulled through the fabric and show a lot on the bottom. They must be evened out so the "tug of war" is even so the knot is in the middle of the fabric.
START WITH BOBBIN FIRST: Remove bobbin and bob from finger. When you have it adjusted right then the bobbin will extend one inch when you bob it. If you can't bob your bobbin you will have to make an approximate and replace. You may have to do this a couple times to get it right.
WHEN IT'S RIGHT: The bobbin and top tension are equal without being too much pull on both that causes the fabric to pull together.

I have a Singer Futura XL 400 the bobbin thread is showing on the top


Tension between top and bottom is a BALANCE, and when the bobbin thread shows on top, it means that your top tension is tighter than your bobbin tension, so it is pulling the bobbin thread up above the fabric.

Loosen the top tension to balance it--it should only take a couple of "ticks"--no more than one number. Loosening the top tension, by the way, is AWAY from the "S".

Top thread is tight and bottom thread is too loose. How do you tighten the bottom thread?


You havent said what make and model this relates to.

But generally, you adjust the top thread and leave the bottom thread tension alone (unless it has been altered in error).

If your machine has a removeable bobbin case that goes into a front loading vertical rotary hook then you adjust a little screw on the bobbin case with a mini screwdriver. See this website for lots of great sewing machine tips and general help. http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineparts/p/bobbincase.htm This page shows a removable bobbin case and explains which way the bobbin goes into it. If the bobbin is in the wrong way or not under tension this could be causing your stitching issues too.

Only 1/4 turn increments each time. To check tension on the bobbin case, put in the bobbin, pull the thread into tension spring, then hold the thread tail and dangle the bobbin case and bobbin (dangle test). It should hang in the air and the bobbin not release any thread. So turn screw up until you get it to this point but no further. With a gentle pull though, you want the thread to come out of it. Right to tighten, left to loosen usually.

If you search some of my other solutions I've covered the dangle test lots of times.

I have a singer Futura CE-250. I am having problems with the tension I think. While embroidering the top thread is showing completely on the underside of the material. In other words the bobbin thread...


One of the things they don't really tell you about embroidering with the singer machines is that you really do need to use the same color in both the bobbin and the top. No matter how much you adjust the tension, you will still end up with some of the thread from both showing through on the other side, unlike with most other machines.

I found this out from a Singer technician about 3 years ago when I had the same problem with my CE 150 and was going nuts! He worked with both Singers, Vikings and Huskvarna's. and saved my sanity after demonstrating a lot of technical stuff that basically showed me why Singers did this.

Save your sanity-just bite the bullet and use the same thread in the bobbin as you do in the top.

My bobbin thread keeps coming to the top of my fabric during embroidering on my Singer Futura CE350, I've tried bobbin embroidery thread, regular embroidery thread and clear nylon thread, I've tried...


With the embroidering, some of the bobbin thread is SUPPOSED to show on the top of your embroidery-the machine isn't doing anything incorrectly. You'll need to thread your bobbin with the same thread as you are using with the top. I had the same "problem" when I first got the machine and took it to a wonderful local technician whose helped me with a lot of things who informed me that this is perfectly normal on embroidery machines.

hi there,
