My empisal designer 800 keeps knotting the under thread when i sew


Is it the bobbin thread or the upper thread that is knotting under the fabric. Usually, it is the upper thread, which means the problem is most often the upper thread.

Install a brand new needle.

Remove the thread. Use only good quality thread--NOT old thread or bargain bin varieties.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the upper thread from the beginning. Verify that the thread path is correct.

Check that the bobbin is installed correctly and threaded accurately.

Set the upper tension to the midway point and test your machine.

If there are still issues, you may need to have it serviced.

What am I doing wrong when the stitching on top of the material is ok and straight and the backside is knotting?


wrong bobbin tension , but amazingly its actually easier to adjust the top threads tension to compensate for it , use your tension knob to slowly adjust , try an inch , slowly adjust try an inch , and so on to get a top and bottom thread tension to match , this will need to be adjusted for each major change in fabric (aka , knits to woven )

My Juki MO-655 serger will sew a few inches then the needle thread becomes disengaged in the stitch process. The machine will sew a few inches more then stops making stitches. I have cleaned the thre


Make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Make sure you are using serger thread that isn't old. Make sure you are undoing all the threads when it breaks and thread it from the beginning.

Make sure you have the right needles in their respective places. My Juki MO has two different size needles.

I hit a pin with my Singer Stylist 7258. It jammed. I changed the needle, rethreaded it, and turned it off and on, but it snarls up thread under the fabric, and seems that the thread does not always loop...


Good that you changed the needle. Did you rethread just the needle or did you rethread the machine? You may have already taken these steps, but if not, here is what I would suggest:

1. Replace the old needle (which you did), even if it looks ok, as it may be bent or have a tiny burr or other damage that isn't easily visible. Make sure the needle is seated properly - facing forward and fully inserted.
2. **Completely rethread the machine, making sure the thread is going through the take-up lever. It can easily pop out when the machine jams, and you can't always see that the thread is out of place. That could explain why the thread doesn't loop properly around the bobbin.
3. Remove the bobbin and clean any knotted thread or lint from around the bobbin carrier. Canned air is great for cleaning the lint.
4. Replace the bobbin, making sure the thread-end is clipped neat, not frayed or knotted.
5. Try sewing on some practice fabric to make sure the stitches are going to form properly before returning to your sewing project.
Good luck!

Thread clumps and knots on the bottom of what I'm sewing. Sews smooth for a few seconds and more clumps. I've rethreaded and adjusted the tension....no help there.


It is because the thread is not going through the tension discs right. Rethread, then pull on the top thread with the presser foot up, it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, the top thread should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs.

The bobbin in my 401A jamsafter sewing only a few inches leaving a knotted "mess" on the fabric . How can I repair this?


Something is not threaded right on the top, or the thread is tangled. Take the thread completely out and rethread. Also, make sure that no thread is caught in the bobbin area, if necessary take bobbin casing out and clean with a brush. Always turn the handwheel towards you, never away from you because it can mess up the timing, Also google Singer 401a there is a great blog on this machine

Our old simnger machine knots up the threads from the bobbin side-below. What is the solution


Hello,
Rethread the upper threading and adjust the tension. The knotting up in the under side of the fabric is due to incorrect upper tension.
Thanks,
Pat

I purchased singer bobbins to use in my singer 5050. I thread the machine and bobbin per manual instructions, but when sewing, the thread severely bunchens and knots up on the bottom side of the item I'm...


"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.
