My machine bunches thread at bottom of material and is runnung sllooow. I am not sure where to oil it. But do have sewing machine oil. It's like brand new, but got it like 8 years ago. Please help...


You can go to www.singerco.com and buy a manual for $15. right from Singer. You really need your manual to learn where to oil your machine and other tips. Singer's site does have some things about threading your machine, because your problem is in your top threading. You can also call Singer at 1-800-4singer. Good luck

Thread bunching under work


Clean away all the thread.

If you look through the Singers at Relics.com you may find your machine and order a manual so you can be sure the bobbin has been threaded and is inserted correctly into the machine.

It is possible the timing has to be adjusted - you can find this at sewusa.com

Singer simple- thread is bunching at the bottom of my material. I have tried different tension settings.


"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.

It sounds to me like the upper thread is not threading properly. Make sure the presser foot is in the up position when threading. After you thread it, try putting the presser foot in the down position and pulling on the thread going through the needle. YOu should have some resistance. If not, you definitely have a threading problem. Check to make sure there isn't any thread broken off in the thread path or wound up in the tension disc.

You need to do a tension test
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Tension assembly test. To do this test. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.)
If it doesn’t work this way then you probably have a piece of thread or lint stuck inside the tension discs. To remove it, turn the tension to 0 zero and raise the presser foot.Using a small screwdriver, open the space between the discs and spray with canned or compressed air. The stuff should come out. Do the tension test again to make sure you got everything and then try sewing again.
