Sounds like the bobbin thread may have become knotted or jammed. I would suggest if you have a spare bobin trying that one to see if the same problem occurs.

Good luck

Janome 350E will not pull up the bobbin thread during operation. re-threaded the bobbin top thread,replaced needle,changed threads,changed designs.


Try a brand new needle. If that doesn't help, then it's quite possible the machine has been knocked out of time. Search for "sewing machine timing" or take it for service.

Need help adjusting the lower tension on my Viking sewing machine. Lower tension causes strait stitches; upper tension (zigzag) adds bunches of thread. I don't know where to adjust tensions. Help.


Generally, bobbin tension is set at the factory and is usually a "last attempt" to alter. Sounds like you are probably experiencing bird nesting or thread nesting which is a top thread issue.

Be sure to install a brand new needle.
Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread.
Set the top tension to the mid-point and retest your machine.

Tension is correct when top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric. It is a tug of war between the two threads. When there is equal pull, the top thread pulls the bobbin thread up and the bobbin thread pulls the top thread down. Increasing the top tension pulls the bobbin thread further up, decreasing top tension will allow the bobbin thread to pull the top thread down.

My Toyota 444 sewing machine. When sewing,stitches ok on right side of material but underneath,stitches are entangled. sometimes it stops sewing and I have to pull thread out.


ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread. (You will need to remove the top thread from the machine and rethread from the beginning.)

For tension, start out with it set about the mid-point on the tension dial. Then tweak it from there. If top thread is showing on the bottom of the fabric, tighten the top tension. If bobbin thread is showing on the top of the fabric, loosen the top tension. It's ideal when both threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

I have a brother 770pe and the bobbin color is white and the thread color is green, but the embroidery comes out white. What do I do?


The surface of the embroidery is often a combination of the two threads. The bobbin thread is intertwined with the top spool thread to make the design. Easy fix: make sure the bobbin thread is the same color as the top spool thread.

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.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up and this will eliminate what looks like a loopy bobbin thread.

If you thread with the presser foot down, the tension control is not open to accept the thread as it is designed to do.

Then when you sew, the tension cannot control the top thread and the bobbin thread pulls the loose top thread to the bottom of the fabric.

Normal setting for the tension is usually mid-range ( 4 or 5).

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!
