This really sounds like it is a simple top threading problem. Please check your threading path at the take-up lever #3 of the 4 steps. If the thread comes out of the take-up lever or it was missed during threading, the machine does not receive any top tension. No top tension means that the machine is being flooded with thread and wrapping around the shuttle hook.... jamming up.
If your machine is currently threaded, leave it threaded follow the thread from the spool through the first thread guide at #1 straight down to #2 and up to #3 (make sure that the thread is through the take-up lever (silver hook) at #3 from three you will bring the thread straight down to the thread guide that is to the left of the needle. Thread the needle from front to back.
I know this sounds too simplistic but it happens to even professional sewers.
Hope this resolves the issue you are having, feel free to contact me any time.

Bottom thread is a tangled mess. Was going great, now can't sew.


bottom thread mess is an indication that the needle thread tension is too loose
check the needle /hook timing to ensure that it hasn't altered

the problem most likely is thread tension possibly on the upper thread
It is not pulling the thread up from the bottom allowing the bottom thread to become tangled

How do I adjust my bobbin tension


The problem probably comes from not threading the top of the machine correctly. Take a look here: http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/22521551 especially at the last pair of photos. The blue tangled thread is on the top of the machine, the red thread in the bobbin. Set the top tension to about 3-4, and rethread from scratch, this time with the presser foot raised. This causes the tension disks to open so the thread can get between them When you drop the presser foot to sew, the top thread is then tensioned and won't make loopy messes.

Install bobbin in euro-pro X 464XC


Either your machine was not threaded with the presser foot wasn't up when you threaded the upper thread... or your upper tension isn't tight enough.

Good luck.

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.

Thread tangles on the underside of the material being sewed the top seems normal, but the bottom of the material I am sewing becomes a tangled mess. any help would be greatly appreciated.


Sounds like a threading problem. Thread the machine all the way to the needle but not in the needle eye and make sure you have the presser foot up. Then pull on the thread and move the presser foot up and down. You should have tension when it is down and no or very little when it is up. If this is not the case you did not get the thread in the tension disk or your machine needs a adjustement. try this and let me no if it fix the problem.

The bottom thread is all tangled. I have


Hi! This is the machine I use (mostly) and I've found it really doesn't like lint. I brush out lint every few hours and it has made a huge difference in how my machine sews. I suspect your machine may be as sensitive to lint as my is, so give her a really good cleaning. Then, rethread (yes, I know you've done that already, but do it again, for grins.) everything. Pay careful attention to the way the bobbin thread comes off the bobbin (from left to right) when you rethread. If you usually use the automatic bobbin pickup, don't. Pick up the bobbin thread the regular way, and, holding the top thread and bobbin thread securely in your left hand, start to sew.
I sure hope this helps!
Please let me know if this works, ok?

The bobbin string gets tangled in a big mess and jams the machine


adjust the thread tightness. thread tension might be loose enough. be sure also the the bobbin inside the machine is place correctly! reversed placement would result in bigger mess.
