Try this little trick, rethread it and then with the presser foot up pull on the top thread, it should move smoothly, now put the presser foot down, the thread should barely move. This sometimes seats the thread in the tension discs the right way. I have my tension set at 3 but each machine is different.

Singer 160 bottom tension problems


tighten the little screw on the bobbin carrier... a little at a time.

are you sure it's the bottom tension? Loose top tension will make loops on the bottom side of the seam.

The bobbin will not wind properly - it bunches at the bottom and will not "thread" from top to bottom for proper tension


Mine did same thing,was told to wrap twice around the silver know where you normally wrap twice,make sure bobbin is all the way down.dont forget you start threading as if you were going to for top thread go thru first hook then over to silver know,but twice.hope this helps did me

I have a singer 5062 that was given to me and I am not sure how to thread it. Also I would like to download a manual if possible. My top stitch looks good but the bottom thread keeps looping up and looks...


Go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals and enter 5062 into the search field. You can download your manual for free in Adobe Reader format. That should have instructions on how to thread.

It also sounds like your tension needs to be adjusted. Let me give you instructions for adjusting the tension on anysewing machine. Be sure to have a scrap piece of the fabric you are using andthread the top of the machine with a different color of thread than thebobbin-it'll make it easier to see what's going on. Thread your machine with the presser foot UP. The disks that control the tension (threadgoes through them) are tightened up if the foot is down. Change the machine tension with the presser foot DOWN.Because the disks won't be engaged (see above) if the foot is up, the diskswon't move. Start at the middle setting, 3. Go up to tighten, decrease toloosen. Each machine is different, even 2 different machines of the same model.The best thing to do is start at 3 and use a different color in the top andbobbin thread so you can easily see what changes to the tension do to yourstitches. Now use a straight stitch a sew 3 or so inches. Take a lookat the top and bottom of the fabric. You don't want to see any (or at least notmuch) of the other color showing from the other side. Loops on the bottom of the fabric means you need to tighten(increase) your top tension. If you're stitches on the bottom are causingpuckering, then you need to loosen you're top tension. For the most part, youreally don't want to touch your bobbin tension-leave that to a repairtechnician. The factory setting shouldn't be touched except by someone whoreally knows what they're doing. Keep sewing a few inches at a time until you have the resultsyou want. Now you're tension is where you need it!

Looking for sewing machine manual for singer sewing machine model 6218. The bottom bobbin tension is so loose that it forms many loops under the fabric.


I went to the singer website & typed the number in 6218 & it came up with nothing, is that the correct model number?
the tension problem try adjusting the top thread tension to 3-5, & see if that helps the loose tension

My machine is not computerized. How do you fix


If the loops are on the bottom it means either the top tension is too loose or the lower tension is too tight. It can also mean that the thread is snagging on something in the bobbin case area.

Top tension adjustment


Believe it or not, most computerized machines have an automatic tension. This works well providing, the thread is thru the tension wheel setup.
But for further reference,
loops on the bottom-- problem on the top.
loops on the top--problem on the bottom.

Upper thread balls up on the bottom. Makes a matt on the underside of garment.


If your thread messes up on the bottom then the problem lie in the top threadinbg of the machine.. Some how it is not thru the tension wheel like it needs to be. FYI.. Loops on the bottom fix the top.. Loops on the top, fix the bobbin.
