Usually it is your top threading or your needle needs to be changed. Rethread paying close attention that the thread is in the tension discs right. Try with presser foot up, pull thread, it should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down, it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs.

Try changing your stitch length, if its too shortl it will bunch up under the unit.

Question about a bobbin


First you have to determine if the thread under the plate is the bobbin's thread... or just great loops from the upper thread.

Bobbin snarls are caused by the bobbin unspooling in the wrong direction.

Burrs and snags on the carrier.

Upper thread snarls in the bobbin area are "operator error" Typically, upper thread not threaded correctly (foot UP, buttercup)... or neglecting to put the presserfoot down while sewing.

Good luck.

Bobbin thread catches under plate and gets tangled when I try to sew. I cleaned out entire bottom area and changed thread, no help. Please, this is urgent. I am working on a customer quilt.


Check for burrs or scratches on hook. You can smooth with emery cloth. And put one drop of oil on the oscillating hook.I would insert new needle too and make sure foot up when rethreading so thread locates smoothly into the tension discs. I could feel your frustration and hope this helps. Jimmy

Top thread tangled in bobbin.


try changing the needle---flat side goes to the back side of the machine
also check the top tension
depending on the fabric your sewing on--the needle & thread have to work
with the fabric--example light fabric needs a different needle & thread than
a heavy fabric
check to see if the thread is coming off the thread take up lever when you
sew.

How do i put threed into the bobbin and keep it from not getting tangled?


Is it getting tangled while you're spooling the bobbin on the top right corner of the Singer 1507 machine? If this is the case, you have to pull the thread through the top tiny hole in the bobbin, and hold on to the thread end. Then click the bobbin to the right to lock it in place, power up your machine. Keep holding the thread as you begin spooling the bobbin. Let go of the thread once the bobbin starts to spin a few rounds and the thread should not get tangled.

Bobbin Thread is "birdnesting"


Get out the manual and refer to the maintenance section for cleaning the machine.

Especially the bobbin area. You want to make sure the area around the bobbin case is free of lint and thread.

Use a new bobbin and re-thread the machine, with the presser foot UP.

Install a new needle, again according to the directions in the manual. Installed incorrectly can lead to mis-stitching.

If the problem persits, the timing may need adjusting.

This should be done by the sewing machine tech for Kenmore.

Sewusa.com has a guide for this in the repair section, but you could end up with more problems.

Help, my mom is out of town.. I sew two or three stitches and the machine stops. It sounds like it is stuck. I have taken out the bobbin and it doesn't look like anything is stuck?


Get out the manual and start with maintenance so you can be sure the bobbin area is clean.

Now start at the beginning of the manual.

Read and apply as you wind the bobbin and place it into the bobbin case.

Thread the machine - again - read and apply.

Pictures and graphics are very helpful but don't always highlight some of the important steps.

CAN"T FIND THE MANUAL -

Remove the bobbin-case and clean away any thread the may have tangled there.


Make sure the thread is tight and even on the bobbin,

If this is a vertial bobbin/metal bobbin case, the thread winds from the bobbin clockwise and then through the opening on the side of the bobbin case and under the guide just above the opening.

Lift the needle to it's highest position and then lift the lever on the bobbin-case and hold it open as you insert the bobbin-case into the shuttle.

If this is a drop-in, horizontal bobbin, the graphic on the plastic lid covering the bobbin will indicate which way the thread feeds from the bobbin and through the guides.

Replace the needle, with the flat side of the shank facing the back of the machine.

Lift the presser foot and re-thread the machine. IMPORTANT - always have the presser foot up when threading.

Hold onto the thread end, lower and raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread, Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Place a double layer of fabric under the presser foot. Hold onto the thread ends and lower the needle into the fabric for the first stitch.

Press on the power pedal.
