Your machine needs a trip to a repair person-sounds like a defective or loosened part. Also, contact Juki about this problem. I've had various problems with my Juki, but never this.

Over locker loopy bottom stitch


Loopy on bottom means the top tensions need to be adjusted. "All on 3 means nothing" These are tension knobs and are not required to be on the same number.

In the mean time rethread the machine with a different color on each spool This will help you determine which thread is the offender. sew the same type of material this thread set up... tighten the corresponding tension dial. Once you get a good stitch, Lift the food, cut all the threads near the spools and tie off new thread/spools and pull the thread through to the needle. Once it is all threaded again test your stitch with the same fabric again.

How do I adjust the bobbin tension? The stitches it produces are loose/loopy. The thread pulls out of the fabric like a basting stitch.


Make sure that your top threading is right. My sister in law has this same machine and it is a really hard thing to do, Your manual has very vague instructions but check your thread going through the tension discs by pulling on the top thread with the presser foot up, it should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down, it should barely move. /Sometimes this seats the thread in the tension discs. She is having no luck with the buttonhole making. In 50 years of sewing I have never seen a more vague manual and no customer service at all.

I have a brother vx-1125 and the top stich is fine but the bottom one is a mess, whats the best setting to have it on for a normal straight stitch?thanks


If the bottom stitching is a mess it usually means that the TOP thread is not threaded correctly. What happens most of the time is that the thread is not snug in the tension discs. First re-thread your machine with the presser foot UP and when you get to the tension discs (sticking up at the back of the machine) hold your thread like you're flossing and go back and forth in the disc to make sure you have tension on it. You should hear a little click when it's in there. (Test it...floss it on and pull it off so you can hear the click.) If the thread isn't between these discs your bobbin thread will be loopy. Finish threading the machine and you should have no problem now. Also, make sure your upper tension is set at 4 and your stitch LENGTH (on the right front) should be 2.5 or 3 for a normal stitch. Hope this helps. Let me know! Thanks for using FixYa

Tension problem


Set the top tension as recommended by the mfg - this is usually between 3 - 6.

Now re-thread the machine with the presser foot up and see if this doesn't eliminated the loopy stitches.

What appears to be an issue with the bobbin may actually be the top thread was not seated into the tension during threading and the tension cannot control the flow of thread to the needle and you get a loopy stitch.

Keep the bobbin case clean as built-up lint can cause stitching problems.

Appearence of loop and no zigzag stich on ls-2125i brother


The loopy stitching is usually do to threading the machine with the presser foot down.

Raise the presser foot and re-thread or pull about 8" of thread through the needle and see if the loopy stitches go away.

This may also be the issue with the zig-zag stitch.

When the machine is threaded with the presser foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter as it should for the tension to control the flow of thread to the needle. The thread then feeds too fast and the stitching is distorted.

I have a Janome 1600P QC drags on a Little Gracie 2 frame


Sorry for your headache. It is the frame. If it is not level, balanced, you have hell to pay. Also it there is a nick in the grooves of the carriage tracks this will cause a machine problem. You may be able to repair the frame, or level it about the old level the table trick, put something under that part.

Good luck

Old bernina 830 stitching problem: tight


Sounds like you need to adjust the tension. Probably a good idea to oil this older machine before you adjust. Also look for and clean out any lint or debris in bobbin case and around foot area.

Loopy stitches on the back


I have no real solution for your serger, but keep in mind that stitches on the bottom of the work reflect upper thread tension problem, while top stitches are a problem of the bobbin tension( FOR THE MOST PART)
