Do you have the right size bobbin in the machine? It does not sound like it, or you don't have the bobbin case seated right.

I replaced the bobbin holder and the thread is jumping out of number 3@4 also causing bird nest what do I do


The bobbin case is most likely not the problem.

The problem is probably with the top thread threading, ie the thread is not seated completely in the tension disk. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread.

Euro pro 9130 Bobbin holder jumps out of place when sewing, then the machine locks up, tweets and stops sewing. I have ordered a new bobbin holder and that did not help.


check the upper thread tension
make sure all the thread guides all used- & that the thread is not hanging up some where on the machine
check the top thread tension dial to see if there is any thread caught in it
change the top & bobbin thread- make sure the thread is not knoty or old

I have an elna lotus sewing machine and have refilled the bobbin but cant remember how the bobbin goes back into its place. the machine will sew for awhile and then the cotton gets tangled .can you help...


Is this a Swiss made Elna Lotus with top loading bobbin (check machine plate on right beside power inlet for manufacture details) ? (the original Lotus was released back in 60's but that name has been reused on a number of different models since, some made under licence elsewhere) If yes, then the following applies:

Bobbin should have holes on one side only, always wind it with the holes on top and load it into the bobbin holder the same way so it is rotating anti clockwise when you pull the thread.

Drop wound bobbin into bobbin holder and, while holding the bobbin still with one finger, pull the thread tail towards you into the tension spring, then press down on the thread until you hear it "Click" into the tension spring.

Then hand wind the fly wheel towards you while holding the top thread tail to catch the bottom thread and bring it up to the top needle plate, close the back sliding plate over the bobbin.

Other thing with these machines is ALWAYS hold the two thread tails firmly when you start a new seam so the threads don't get pulled down into the bobbin holder area. Really important.
You can dowload a manual from www.arizonaexpressionz.com for most of the Swiss machines.

If it is not Swiss made one, then your bobbin may be vertical front loading (like the Brothers).

There are threading diagrams for lots of machines at www.sewusa.com, there might be one there that covers your machine.

Bottom thread too loose; tried rethreading top thread, cleaning bobbin case, refilling bobbin, changing needle, adjusting top tension


Check for correct bottom thread tension.
It's provided by a flat spring on the bobbin holder.
When the bobbin is correctly installed, pulling on the thread
should meet with slight resistance, and the bobbin should spin without
trying to jump out of the bobbin holder.

I threaded it all right i have cheacked it many times but the thread in the bobbin keeps getting jammed


Many causes for this problem. Most common are;
  1. Top thread not inserted correctly.(must keep thread tight.)
  2. Debris and loose thread around the bobbin cage. All it takes is a tiny piece of thread in the right place.
  3. Bobbin inserted backwards in the "bobbin holder". When installed correctly, There is some resistance when you pull on the thread, but the bobbin will spin without trying to pop out of the "bobbin holder".

Bobbin thread tension issues


There might be a piece of thread or lint caught in the bobbin tension preventing it from functioning correctly.

Underneath stitch bad


Sometimes even though the tension is at recommeded placement, you may find with various fabrics or threads, you have to adjust it. I would try to raise the tension just a bit. Try it a little at a time until you achieve a stitch you are happy with. If adjusting the tension does not correct the problem, double check your threading. If sure it is threaded properly, especially going through the tension assembly...check your thread. I have found that the thread you use can and often does create tension problems. Try changing the thread and see if the stitch quality improves.
