Either the thread is not in the tension assembly, the tension is not adjusted high enough or the thread is not in the take up assembly.
It's possible you have the wrong bobbin in the machine.

Stitch length singer


Run through the "10 minute tuneup" here: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090925205957AAq0xc4 DO NOT MESS WITH THE BOBBIN TENSION. Top tension setting should be about 3-4. Stitch length probably in the neighborhood of 2.5 - 3.5 mm.

Little kids and sewing machines seem to have a natural attraction, which is why my mom taught me to sew on her machine when I was 5. Sometimes it's easier to teach the kid how to do it right than keep the kid from messing with the machine.

Stitch issues


Find the tensions on your machine. Usually a screw below on the bobbin regulates the top stitches tension. Usually a numbered wheel on top--where the thread is around it--regulates the bottom stitches. YOU NEED TO ADJUST THE TOP WHEEL, test on scrap material, and if looser, you are in the right direction. If it is still a mess. turn the knob to a lower number.

The cotton on my bernina 801 keeps jamming


Loops on bottom indicate a top thread tension problem.

Make sure needle is the correct size and not bent or broken
Make sure it is threaded properly with the lever UP.

Do a test stitch.

If it still loops below... tighten the top tension and do another test stitch... keep doing this until the stitch is balanced.

BTW... always grasp and hold both threads when starting a seam.

Hello. I own a Singer 4423 Heavy Duty sewing machine. It has been working fine overall, but today it is giving me problems with jamming. At first it jammed underneath the plate and created a huge ball of...


Make sure thread is not laying across the bobbin when you look down into the plastic slider that covers the top loading bobbin case. The bobbin on mine I observed was loose in the case so that as the machine ran, eventually the bobbin thread would jump out of the stitch finger (the silver piece to the far left of the bobbin case, past the tension slots). I solved this problem and so can you! Take the extra felt spool pin felt in your accessories kit that came with the machine, remove bobbin from case and drop this small felt circle into the bobbin case. Replace bobbin. On the 4423, the bobbin thread goes counter-clockwise and drops into the tension discs, and goes all the back until it falls into the space left of the silver stitch finger. Make sure take up level raised all the way up! Then pull the needle thread toward you until bobbin thread comes all the way up. If you start sewing and you actually can SEE the bobbin thread laying across the bobbin, STOP and tethered because that would mean your thread did not slide all the back behind the silver stitch finger--however, I assure you, if you go one step at a time, you did it correctly! You will be smiling in no time! Why? The felt helps to make the bobbin rest in the correct position to keep it from jumping out of the groove. I hope this helps you.

Material keeps getting pulling into bobbin, and thread in bobbin compartment jamming


Two things to check:

1. the bobbin tension. Is it too tight? It should pull out without a ton of resistance but should have just a bit.

2. Is the material sheer or thin? If you can drop the dogfeed a bit you might want to do that or you can sew through tissue paper (on the bottom side) to keep the material from being pulled down.

If those things don't help you might try lengthening the stitch just a tad and make sure the needle you're using is the right size for the fabric.

New to me. Threaded machine- started with needle in material. Stitched a couple of stitches and all the lights went on and buzzer went off.


Maybe, pull the material out of machine, and make sure that the thread didn't all jam in the bobbin area. If so, clean it out and rethread your machine, upper and lower. Now, put the material in again, but do not start with needle in the materal, make sure that it is in the highest position. Hang on to your threads, upper & lower, for a few stitches. If, your material is real stretchy or thin, put some stabilizer under it, or gift wrapping tissue paper under it. See what happens now. Good luck

I keep having problems with the stitching on my machine. 1) when you sew the stitches looks normal from the top but when you turn the material over it looks like one big tangled mess. 2)When it does...


It is usually in your top threading, make sure that your thread match in bobbin and top threads. Mixing sometimes causes a problem. Also make sure that nothing is tangled. Also, check your needle and put a new one in just to be sure, then check your manual for size of needle and what kind of project you are doing. Hope this helps.

How do I reset the timing on my machine. Machine will not feed material my stitch length control is hard to move and it sounds like there is a rod knocking when I sew.


Sounds more like you have a serious thread or fabric jammed in your machine. I would definately check that before I tried messing with the timing because if you dont have the know how or tools you can destroy your machine for good. Ask my sister, she knows first hand.
