    A general rule of thumb is to adjust the top tension when having problems with the bottom thread and adjust the bobbin tension when experiencing problems with your top stitch. To adjust the bobbin tension, most machines have a small screw on the side of the bobbin casing. Turn slightly to the left to loosen bobbin thread, turn to the right to tighten.

    When beginning to sew, hold the needle thread and the bobbin thread in one hand while guiding with the other. Don't pull, but hold taut. After a couple of good stitches, you can let go of the threads. Holding these threads during take-off prevents the thread from tangling and hanging up in the machine.

    If the thread tangles in the bobbin casing during stitching, clip threads to remove fabric from under the needle. Open bobbin area and remove any loose or tangled threads. Even the tiniest piece of thread which has remained stuck in the bobbin casing can cause the machine to sew improperly. Check to see that the machine is threaded correctly and that the bobbin is inserted properly in the casing.



    you should be able to make most minor repairs on the machine without professional assistance

Bobbin rattles while sewing


This sounds like a sewing machine problem not a washing machine. What machine do you have? Has the machine been serviced in the past year?

Hi, ive just purchased a newish used singer 6038 sewing machine, every time i try to sew the thread keeps coming out of the needle and it is not sewing at all, ive checked the tension, checked i have...


Hi Yes if the bobbing case is not put back correctly it can cause all sorts of problems. Do you have the instruction book for the machine? If so just have a look through and it should show you in detail how to take the bobbin and case out to clean it, then with these instructions you should be able to fit it correctly. Otherwise if you have a look at the metal case that the bobbin case fits into (its called a hook race) and there should be markers like an arrow or lines, when the bobbin case is fitted back in these markers are lined up and there also should be a notch at the front of the case and this sits to the left of the stopper. Just make sure there are no threads caught up in the hook race, that can stop your machine from working too. The only thing that I can think could be causing your thread to come out is the tension but if you've checked that just try and fix the bobbin, this may be all thats wrong. Good luck, hope this helps.

I have the same problem and the part that the bobbin sits in is called a STITCH LENGTH CONTROL CRANK Part number 312801 That's all I could find out. Unfortunately for me - that little lip on that part broke off. I didn't realize it had come loose and when I changed out the bobbin - crunch! Do you know where to get parts online???
