Bobbin thread is in big loops


It doesn't sound like a timing problem Featherweights rarely have that. It's most probably insufficient top (needle thread) tension. I suspect there's some gunge, lint or broken thread between the plates. Have it apart and give it a good clean then reset it.

I am not sure about this particular machine but in most machines there will be a nob on the front loose low numbers like 0 1 -2 work well on number 3. If the nob is not on the front check and see if it is on the side.

Top zigzag is fine, bottom is loose


sounds as if it has insufficient top tension, clean between discs then re thread with presser foot down

Tension is loose underside


Loops appear on the surface (top side) of the fabric?
Reduce the tension by turning the upper tension control dial to a lower number. If the loops still appear on the surface of the fabric after you adjust the upper tension, the bobbin thread may be too loose. In this case, turn the screw clockwise, being careful not to over-tighten the screw, approximately 30-45 degrees to increase bobbin tension. After you adjust the bobbin thread, adjust the upper thread to match the bobbin thread.
Make sure you reset before your next project.

Singer 57817 thread tension problem


Hello,

If you have Increased the upper thread tension on your machine, try these solutions.

* Decrease your bobbin tension if your sewing machine allows you to adjust it. Consult your manual.

* Re-thread your bobbin, It may be threaded incorrectly.

* Reinsert your bobbin, It may be inserted incorrectly.

* Change your thread. If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for both.

I hope this helps.

I am the one who had the problem of the bobbin case moving around and not letting the machine sew correctly. I lossened the screws to the right and slid the metal plate a little closer and the thread is...


Now you need to adjust the tensions, make sure you thread the machine with the presser foot up, top tension should be about 4 or 5, you should be able to pull the bobbin thread through with slight resistence, if it is too tight slacken the large screw on the bobbin case about a quarter of a turn at at a time anti clockwise and test sew until you get it right, do not use very thick threads.

Singer 221-1 stitching is good on bottom but not on top


pucker is caused by too loose or, to tight adjustment of: the thread tensioners both the bobbin tensioner and, the needle tensioner need to be adjusted: to adjust the needle tensioner turn the side knob clockwise is tighter counterclockwise loosens; the bobbin tensioner is a tiny screw on the bobbin holder adjust both tensioners until your stich loops' both top and, bottom are tight but, the machine does not break the thread

Singer Touch & Sew won't loop bobbin thread


I believe you have a broken gear. These are difficult to repair on your own.

Bobbin thread is loose and looping


Okay it is the tension scrow on the bobbin. There is a small screw on the bobbin and by tightening it it gives you more tension on the bobbin.
