Go to singerco.com and put your model number in and download a free manual. You are probably not threading it right on the top thread or your thread is tangled, you could also have a bent needle or one with a burr on it. Change needle.

Embroidering in blue thread, and the white bobbin thread was coming through on the material. Adjusted the tension to -8, sprayed the bobbin casing and area lightly with WD40, changed the bobbin, changed...


The white bobbin thread was showing on the top of the material correct? Make sure bobbin thread is in the tension correctly, check the top thread spool and make sure thread is not caught around it, if you have a manual top tension make sure that is set correctly. Personally I would never use wd40 in a sewing machine, sewing machine specific oil is always better. You seem to be describing two different problems. The thread bunching is probably from the thread jump out of the take up lever.

Thread bunching and bobbin winder quit


This sounds a lot like you've forgotten to lower the presser foot. (this leaves the tension discs open and causes serious issues below the material.) Double check that and if still having issues post again.

When i sew the bobbin thread bunches up. what to do?


remove the thread and bobbin.
take out your manual and follow the exact instructions for threading and inserting bobbin.

If this does not help check the tension on the top(the number should be about mid way).
If it is too low it will bunch up on the bottom.

When i am sewing the thread from the bobbin keep bunching up in the bottom of the material


you might check your needle-roll on flat surface to see if it roll correctly
there are 3 types of bad needles-bent,,blunt,damaged
on some sewing machine the thread can come off the thread take up lever
check the bobbin area for lint or loose threads

Bunching and Looping (Bobbin Side)


Thread the machine with different color thread for the needle and the bobbin, then see which color is bunching up.Ill bet it is the top thread.

Thread bunchingup on bottom of material on singer


Hello,
Here are some solutions to try.

* Re-thread your machine
It may be threaded incorrectly.

* Raise your feed dogs If your machine has this feature.

* When you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting caught in your machine.

I hope this helps.
