I would take out the bobbin shuttle and clean it thoroughly, and pay close attention to my threading of my machine. I hope that it helps, I do this for free just to make the suggestions.

Thread tangles on the underside of the material being sewed the top seems normal, but the bottom of the material I am sewing becomes a tangled mess. any help would be greatly appreciated.


Sounds like a threading problem. Thread the machine all the way to the needle but not in the needle eye and make sure you have the presser foot up. Then pull on the thread and move the presser foot up and down. You should have tension when it is down and no or very little when it is up. If this is not the case you did not get the thread in the tension disk or your machine needs a adjustement. try this and let me no if it fix the problem.

When i sew my thread keeps pulling and breaking from the needle, seems like there is a lot of pressure on top thread and it bunches up from the underneath bobbin when sewn on material


Most of the time it is caused by the top threading, Could your thread be old, or tangled? Double check your threading by this little trick, put your tension dial on 3, totally rethread, insert a new needle (flat side facing rear). Then with the presser foot up, pull on the top thead and it should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull again, it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs. Hope this helps.

The threading is getting tangles in the material from the bobbin in the bottom. Is a setting on too high? i do not have a manual for this machine


Have you tried downloading a manual online? Which machine do you have? It sounds like the bottom bobbin may be in the machine backwards.

But I am certainly not an expert.

Stop sewing! You need to adjust your tension. Your book will explain exactly how to do this. If you can't find your book, try setting the tensions to the same number. If your tension adjustments have a mark at a certain number, use that setting for most materials. If not, try setting it to about 3.

To test your settings, thread your bobbin with a different color, then do a test stitch. Check the top and bottom stitches for a spot of the other color thread showing through. If the bobbin thread shows in the top, raise the bobbin tension setting a bit and try it again.

Hope this FixesYa!

check to be sure machine is being threaded correctly first, then when pressure foot is lowered pull thread and see if you are getting tension, if not assembly is bad

Make sure your machine is set to feed material. There may be a switch or knob somewhere on your machine to lower the "feed dogs" (the little metal teeth that pull the material through the machine). If they are down, the material won't feed so the machine will sew in place. More likely, since its knotting on the bottom, your machine is probably not threaded correctly. Rethread the machine, and try again.
Yes, the thread on the bottom IS the needle thread.

Bunching thread underneath


When your thread is bunching at the bottom, your top tension is not tight enough, or you did not thread the machine correctly. Make sure the thread goes through the tension blades. Check your manual how to do it properly. you can check if there is any tension by pulling on the thread before threading through the eye of the the needle, and with the presser foot down. By pulling with the left hand and adjusting the tension with the right hand you should be able to feel a difference. Normal setting is between 3 and 5

Upper thread getting tangled in the bobbin


Always remember T-N-T. Thread, Needle, Tension. Assuming its threaded properly, is the needle all the way in and facing the right direction? These symptoms also suggest the bobbin may be in the bobbincase upside down thus turning in the wrong direction. Hope this helps.
