Tensions, upper or lower out of adjustment, excess lint under bobbin will cause this as well as bobbin thread coming out in wrong direction. Worse case scenerio: Timing is off, if its an old machine.

I have an older Bernina 830. I am having what seem to be tention broblems with the stiches not forming and lots of thread being produced. The adjoining problem is that there is a rattling when I attem


What you're describing is commonly called a 'bird's nest' for fairly obvious reasons. There are, unfortunately, a number of things that can cause it.

Troubleshooting steps:

1. Clean it! I've seen machines that haven't been properly cleaned for years. If there is lint, dust or dirt in the bobbin area especially, the looper won't work correctly and the stitch won't form. Be sure to take out the bobbin when you do this.
2. Oil it. Follow your manufacturer's instructions for this. If you don't have a book, contact Bernina and get one.
3. Change the needle and check the tensioning disks to be sure that no lint, old thread, etc. has got caught in it.
4. Adjust the tension. This can be tricky, so take it in small increments. Here, again, a manufacturer's book is a godsend.
5. If none of this avails, or it only partially fixes the problem, take it to a reputable service center (most fabric, quilting, etc. stores have or know someone) and have them adjust the timing. Most machines need this done every 1-5 years depending upon the usage.

Good luck with it. I wish I had an older Bernina, they're good machines.

Bobbin Thread is "birdnesting"


Get out the manual and refer to the maintenance section for cleaning the machine.

Especially the bobbin area. You want to make sure the area around the bobbin case is free of lint and thread.

Use a new bobbin and re-thread the machine, with the presser foot UP.

Install a new needle, again according to the directions in the manual. Installed incorrectly can lead to mis-stitching.

If the problem persits, the timing may need adjusting.

This should be done by the sewing machine tech for Kenmore.

Sewusa.com has a guide for this in the repair section, but you could end up with more problems.

How do i keep the thread from gathering on the underside of the material The thread bunches and breaks. thought it might be the tension but can't seem to fix. I cleaned the bobbin areas.


Hello,
Here are some solutions for you to try.


* Re-thread your machine, it may be threaded incorrectly.

* Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this feature.

* When you start to sew a seam, hold onto the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting caught in your machine.

I hope this helps.

Top thread gets caught on crescent piece holding in bobbin case


If you have the manual take a better look at how to put the bobbin in the case,

sounds like you are putting it in wrong,

make sure you put the bobbin in with the thread com-ming off the bobbin in the right direction (left or right) if not put in the right way you will get what you are saying

ALSO: bring up the bobbin thread your self by turning the hand wheal and bring the thread a few inches to the back of the needle and hold when starting to sew the first 2-5 stitches.

when you do not hold the thread the machine will pull the thread in the bobbin area and cause problems.

you will get use to holding and it will get easier.

hope this helps

A horrible tangle


This is a bit late, could the bobbin case not be seated properly? You need to put it into place and then turn it clockwise until it seats soundly in the opening. Also, check for burrs...the needle may have left a rough mark on the plastic or metal in the bobbin area. A piece of batting, or even an old knee hi should snag on any rough areas.
