I have a Kenmore Model #385.12814490. Serial #307664. When I start sewing, the thread gets knotted up by the bobbin. My material comes out with lots of long looped knotted thread.


It's called bird nesting or thread nesting.

Install a brand new needle.
Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Set the upper tension to the midway point and then tweak it.

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 )

When I thread my machine and start sewing my bobbin thread gets a huge nest underneath and knots underneath my fabric. What am I doing wrong?


It is your top threading, totally rethread, then with presser foot up, pull on top thread, it should feed smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull thread, it should barely move. This should seat the thread in the tension discs.

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

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.
