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 passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle.
If it passes this test you need to remove the bobbin case and check for burrs or rough spots. If you find any ,use an emery stick to remove them and then buff the area with fine steel wool.Put the bobbin case back in ,check your bobbin(change it ) and try again by turning the handwheel slowly and watching to see where thr thread is snagging

How can I fix the top stich


I like to adjust with 2 colors, then you know which is from the spool, and which one is from the bobbin.

Most bobbin shuttles have a small screw to adjust the tension.

It sounds like your upper thread is adjusted too tight, but only if the loops around it (from the bottom thread) are tight and small. If those loops around the top thread are loose, then you need to tighten the shuttle screw. ;)

I notice this happens to me if I change thread types, also if I sew different thickness of cloth on the same settings. I tend to adjust until the point of breaking thread, then loosen the top a teeny bit.

Bottom thread tangles and knots


usually a top-thread tension issue, try tightening up the top thread's tension, there is usually a disk or knob somewhere to adjust it.

I am having a problem with my bottom sticth. It is all bunch up. But the top sticth is okay. What is going on?


Have you checked that the bobbin thread is correctly into tension? It sounds like something is not right with your tension and the bobbin thread is either not in tension or the thread on the bobbin is tangleing and not flowing smoothly, causing the pulling up.

Either way, you will need to remove the bobbin, take a good look at it and see if it is wound smoothly and neatly (rewind if not), and rethread into tension device.

There is good tips on adjusting tension here http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Repair/Thread_Tension_Settings.htm

Hello,

It sounds to me as if your top thread tension is too loose or your bobbin thread tension is too tight. The top thread is tangling underneath and is probably making big loops. Consult your owners manual on how to adjust thread tensions.

Good Luck!

My machine is a designer 2 but I encounterd a problem with my stich getting all tangled. tryed to clean the bobbin case and under, stich is still tangling bad.


Be absolutely sure that the machine is threaded correctly, with the upper thread clicked into the tension discs (the presser foot MUST be raised when you thread so the tensions discs are open to receive the thread) and bobbin thread clicked into the bobbin tension slot. Change the needle - a bent or blunt needle can cause tangles. Hold onto the thread tails for two or three stitches when you first start sewing to avoid them being drawn down under the fabric and making a mess.

Back of stich looping tried tightening tension went up to the limet with no diference


You do not have your machine threaded properly. Totally rethread your machine, make sure that your thread is not tangled and your needle is not bent. Also, make sure you have the thread compatible top and bottom.

Looping thread on backside.


I have a 26 year old Elna and this is the only weakness it has. Before sewing, try this. Turn the wheel manually and watch the upper thread pick up the bobbin thread. Pull both back to the left. Make sure they are plenty long. This helps me prevent the tangling in the dogfeed. My Elna has a universal tension on the bottom and I haven't ever had a problem with it unless the top tension is too tight.
