Put a different color thread in on top and you will see which one is not threaded right. It usually the top threading problem.

I am a new sewer have a Brither BM-2600 what numbers on the dial do I have for just plain stitching I have tried lots of combinations but the cotton underneath is all bunching up and not sewing right


I am not sure as to your machine, are you saying a "brother" machine? If your tension is set, say on 6 and it is too tight, turn the dial one more number......to a 7 or to a five and then check again. Also, I would rethread the machine and also take the bobbin out and then put it back into the machine. A lot of times, the bobbin isn't threaded into the machine correctly and it bunches up. Also, you can't use certain thick thread on some machines.

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.

My Pfaff Expression 2034 sewing machine is suddenly making an almighty mangled mess at the bottom - it doesn't matter how I re-set the tensions. What can be the problem?


Be sure to use a brand new needle.

Remove the upper thread and bobbin. Reinstall the bobbin making sure it is turning the correct direction and threaded properly in the bobbin case.

RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread. Confirm the thread pathway is correct.

Most often, knots (thread nests) occur under the fabric because the machine is misthreaded or the thread is not seated completely in the tension disk.

Thread is getting bunched up in machine


First thing: install a brand new needle.
Second: remove upper thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Set upper tension to the midway point between high & low numbers.

My bobbin keeps bunching up. I've changed the tension to 2, taken the bobbin case out, used a different bobbin....I don't know what to do. My machine is a month old and I've used it, maybe 4...


Put the tension back up to about 5. Rethread the machine entirely, and make sure you have the pressure foot in the up position when you rethread. If your getting bunching on the bottom, it's probably your top thread that's bunching up. After you rethread, put a small piece of fabric under the pressure foot, lower the pressure foot, and turn the handwheel in the forward direction and watch the thread as it comes around the bobbin case. If it goes around smoothly, try it with the foot control. If it hangs up as it goes around the bobbin case, you might have a burr on the black plastic bobbin case. Take it out, check for any burrs, sand them down, and try again.

The thread is bunching up on the bottom side of my work.


Rethread the machine. Problems on the bottom of the work indicate machine malfunction on top 90% of the time. Make sure that your thread is in the tension disks and in the take up lever.

The fabric gets pulled down into bobbin compartment and thread gets all bunched up hard to remove


It sounds like your bobbin compartment might be pulled out of alignment. You might want to take the bottom plate off, clean off any lint and threads, and put the bottom compartment back in. Follow your manual if you have it. With your right wheel, slowly start to sew is the top or bottom thread having problems? You may have to rethread top and bottom. I found that one time, my top thread was not threaded correctly.

Thread bunches up under the fabric


For normal everyday fabric, tension should be 3-5.
If it is looping on the bottom, the problem is the threading of the machine. If it loops on the top then the problem is with the bobbin.
