Call Singer for customer service at 1-800-4singer, Sounds like your reverse lever is stuck or you have it set on a zero length stitch. I did that once and couldn't figure it out right away, so hopefully that is the problem. Good luck to you

Model number 4562. The bobbin thread bunches up. How do i fix?


Check your stitch sample. Is it the bobbin thread that is making a thread mess, or is it the top thread throwing thread globs under the fabric? Usually, if there is a thread problem under the fabric, it is a top thread issue.

Try this:
Remove the top thread completely from the machine.
Install a brand new needle
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.
Retest your machine and tweak the tension, as needed. If top thread is showing under the fabric, tighten the top tension. If the bobbin thread is showing on the top of the fabric, loosen the top tension. Tension is correct when the two threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

The stitches on the underside are looping I’ve retreaded both the needle and bobbin and neither makes a difference


You are getting a thread mess under the fabric? Frequently, this occurs because the top thread is not fully seated in the tension disk.

Install a brand new needle.
Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the machine from the beginning.
If necessary, adjust the top tension so the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Thread keeps bunching up under needle plate.


hi Virginia.
you have not said what make you have.
but this is all i could find out.
Make sure your bobbin is threaded properly along with the top thread. It would help to know which machine you have. Mine has only one way to put the bobbin in so it will work okay, but I have had the thread miss the take up lever and it acted the same way (top thread). Keep trying.
Is it bunching as you first start sewing a seam? Try hold the bobbin thread and the top thread lightly when you first start your seam.
If you look at how the stitch is made, you'll see that the bobbin and top thread are interconnected, without a bobbin thread, you don't have a stitch. Check out the link below to see how a machine makes the stitch. It's pretty cool.
Are you bringing the bobbin thread to the surface before trying to sew? To do this, manually turn the wheel on the end of the machine so that the needle drops down into the bobbin race, while holding onto the tail of top thread. Bring the needle back up so that it's as high as it will go. Now pull on the tail of the top thread and it should bring up a loop of the bobbin thread. Pull up the loop so that the tail of the bobbin thread is up. As Marion said, you need to hold onto these tails when you start your seam, or the bobbin thread will get pulled down into the bobbin again and cause the snarling that you are having.

Here is a link that might be useful: Sewing machine stitch

When I have the thread bunching underneath, it is usually the upper tension that needs tweaking. Also, be sure that your needle is the right size and nice and sharp. A dull needle can really gum up the works.
When mine has done that it usually has lint under the bobbin case. Have you cleaned under and around the bobbin?
Make sure your bobbin is feeding off in the right direction.
I have just recently learned this. When you are threading your machine, make sure the needle and the presser foot are both in the up position. I am betting that would fix your problem.
I use to have this problem often. [sorry for the simplicity of this answer but it works for me] the needle goes up and down, when it starts it downward motion stop. this should be the position of the needle when you start to sew. hope this helps
or this link might help you out some more.

I checked my thread and bobbin watch the video and my machine keep bunches the bottom stitch


Is it really the bobbin thread that is bunching? Generally, thread messes under the fabric are the fault of the top thread, and thread messes on top of the fabric are a bobbin problem.

Top thread bunching under the fabric is called "thread nesting" or "bird nesting" but I prefer to call it thread "barfs." Most often, it occurs because the top thread has not been seated completely in the tension disk.

Install a brand new needle.
Remove the top thread from the machine.
RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread.
(Verify the thread path is correct.)
Set the top tension disk at the midway point.

Retest your machine. Tweak the top tension if required.

Why does the top thread sometimes picks up the hook and then picks up bobbin but bobbin then crosses over and makes a mess? Wont work


Basic Tips for All
  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.

My bobbin tension thread is bunching up and not sewing right, top stitch is fine? I've moved the tension control number each way and this does not help at all. I've tried different bobbins also? Help!! ...


Recheck your bobbin and make sure it's in the bobbin case correctly.There may be arrow diagram on face plate or bobbin case. You can also check owner's manual to make sure bobbin is inserted the right way. If it isn't, the bobbin thread can "whiplash" causing the bunching you've describe. If you have smooth stitches on top, your top threading is all right. I hope this helps. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution.

Bottom of stitch is bunched with alot of thread and machine jams


Try these time savers:
Test your thread quality to start, thread your machine and LIFT the presser foot (this opens the tension disks). Pull your top thread straight back. If you feel no tension no mater how much thread you pull, your thread is good. If that your machine passes that test, then let me know, we can go to step 2. If not, try different spool of thread, same test until you get a smooth pull (tip: always check your thread this way when you thread your machine)
Step 2:
Pull on your threaded bobbin thread while it’s in the machine. Does it pull smooth and even? If so, go to step 3. If not, try a new bobbin (bobbins get bent or distorted if wound too tight).
Clean thoroughly in the hook and bobbin case area and oil 1-2 drop is all.

Bobbin thread bunches up creating a tangled mess under the plate


This could either be due to the bobbin being wound too loosely, or the tension on the top thread is too loose. This just happened to me the other day, and I thought it was the bobbin thread, but then I put another bobbin in with a different color than the top thread (this is a huge help in diagnosing thread issues), and I was surprised to find that it was actually the top thread that was a big loopy mess on the underside of the fabric. I fixed it by tightening the tension on the top thread (quite a bit), and everything was fine.
