Usually it is your top threading. Totally rethread then try this trick, with the presser foot up, pull on your top thread, it should feed smoothly, now, lower the presser foot and pull again, your thread should barely move. Sometimes this seats the thread and your problem is solved. Hope it works. Good luck

I'm having trouble properly threading my Elna 1010. Could you please help? The bobbin thread keeps bunching up and breaking


bunching of thread under the material is an indication of insufficient tension of the needle thread
increase the needle tension until the threads meet at the center of the materialbeing sewn

My bottom bobben keeps getting stagged why. Everytime i try the bobbin keeps getting stagged


a. Remove the bobbin case and bobbin and clean this area thoroughly. Use a qtip to clean area of dust and dirt.
b. Put a drop of oil on the race (part that bobbin case sits on) It rotates around the bobbin.
c. Adjust bobbin. Attached instructions.
d. Replace needle with a needle appropriate for the thread size.
e. Adjust needle thread to four. It may need to be adjusted up or down some to insure a beautiful stitch. While threading do it with the pressure foot up so you can notice of any snags. These are serious problems that must be fixed. Use only thread that doesn't have fuzz on it. (Shine in light)
f. Use a sample material to check for the stitch appearance. Make slight adjustments to notice how the stitch appearance changes. Use the best!

Bernina artista 180 bottom stitch bunching


bunching under the material is bird nesting is a result of loose needle thread tension thread the machine up to the point of threading the needle
pull on the thread and you should have a reasonable resistance to pulling the thread
adjust the tension until you get that then thread the needle
while you may be using the tension settings if there is a problem in the tension plates area , the tension will not get high enough regardless of the indicated setting
bobbin tension can be reasonably loose
correct tension is when both threads meet at the center of the materials being sewn

Embroidering in blue thread, and the white bobbin thread was coming through on the material. Adjusted the tension to -8, sprayed the bobbin casing and area lightly with WD40, changed the bobbin, changed...


The white bobbin thread was showing on the top of the material correct? Make sure bobbin thread is in the tension correctly, check the top thread spool and make sure thread is not caught around it, if you have a manual top tension make sure that is set correctly. Personally I would never use wd40 in a sewing machine, sewing machine specific oil is always better. You seem to be describing two different problems. The thread bunching is probably from the thread jump out of the take up lever.

"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

My needle thread keeps bunching and llooping on the underside of the fabric. I have re-threaded the needle, adjusted the tension and cleaned out the bobbin case.


If you getting loops on the bottom of your material, you need to re-thread the top of your machine. I say this because it is very rare when you will have to adjust the bobbin tension. But if you must, looking straight down at the bobbin as a clock- at 6:00 is the bobbin tension adjustment- lefty lucy, righty tighty. Hope this helps.





Make sure the needle is inserted in the machine properly- a good rule of thumb is the flat side of the needle should go to the opposite side of the last thread guide. Also make sure the machine is threaded correct
There is no standard tension for any machine to be set at. They start at four when they are brand new, however, after years and years the springs become compressed. You could start at four and then play around with it from there. If you are getting loops underneath the material, you are threading the machine incorrectly.

Bicor vx1005 ...thread keeps bunching


Try a different bobbin. Look for one that is a little narrower. I had the same problem and changing to a narrower bobbin fixed it.

Bobbin thread bunching


I have a Singer 2950. The thread keeps getting bunched up on the reserve side of the fabric, and does not stitch. It is driving me crazy. I think I have the bobbin threaded correctly, as well as the machine. I have tried everything! Please help!
