Question about Kenmore 19110 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

This is the first time I've used my machine. I can't get it to stitch correctly. There are always looped threads on the bottom. I've changed the tension up and down and I still have the loops. I've also changed the fabric and the loops are still there. What else can I try?

Check the manual again and make sure you have it threaded correctly. It still sounds like there isn't enough top tension. Perhaps you missed something in threading it.

SOURCE: Top thread stitches correctly but bottom thread loops.

Make sure your bobbin is not in the case upside down and turning the wrong way.
Sometime people thread the machine with the presser foot down and the upper thread does not go between the tension discs, so check that.

SOURCE: bottom thread loops

More than likely the Bobbin is not threaded correctly and the tension is not being controlled.  review the manual carefully, pay attention to the direction the thread is wound on the bobbin and place it in the case exactly as illustrated, feed the thread through the tension groove.
I would also advise returning to the bobbin to the factory setting and leave it there.

FYI---- Loops on the bottom-- problem is in the threading..
Loops on the top--- problem is with the bobbin.

Hi

Loops on the bottom of the fabric = inadequate top tension
Loops on top of the fabric = inadequate bottom tension. this is probably a tension problem. there is a discrepancy between top and bobbin thread tension. The looping is a too loose tension in the bobbin or too tight a tension on the top thread. in either case, and regardless of cause, the two are out of synch. Try adjusting bobbin tension according to your machine type. after adjusting the bobbin tension sew on a piece of scrap. use a medium sized stitch. check and adjust and test until you are satisfied. If the looping isn't severe, adjust top string tension slightly looser.

Here are other causes for this problem, but they are more unusual and should be considered only if the common remedies don't answer.

If it's the bottom thread, the bobbin isn't wound or loaded correctly, or it's the wrong bobbin. Check to see the bobbin fits in the bobbin case properly. Don't mess with the bobbin tension unless you have to. If the machine had been working before and is not now, the problem is most likely not in the bobbin tension. The adjustment range is really tiny, and it's easy to mess it up.If it still loops after you redo the bobbin, you might also check the parts around the bobbin. Clean up all the fuzz that had collected around the bobbin. Remove all fragments of thread and fuzz with brush and vacuum (don't use compressed air or canned air or blow -- it pushes fuzz farther into the machine where you can't get to it.) Pay special attention to the area around the feed dogs and the sewing hook area.
Lubricate the machine according to the manual's instructions if the manual describes using oil.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Not quite sure what the stitching looks like on the bottom of the fabric. Does it look like this?

Remove the thread from the machine.

ALWAYS raise the presser foot when threading the upper thread. This releases the tension disk so the thread will seat properly. Be sure to use a brand new needle and that it is the correct type needle for the project, thread, and fabric.
All About Needles
Verify that the thread path is correct. Check that the bobbin is inserted correctly and threaded through the tension on the bobbin case properly. AVOID old or bargain bin thread. You may even try a different brand of thread (some machines and threads are just incompatible.)

I am using the walking foot for a quilting project that I am working on, however, the bottom stitching is just looping and can just be pulled away from the fabric.


Be sure you are using a brand new needle.

Remove the thread from the machine.

ALWAYS RAISE THE PRESSER FOOT and rethread the upper thread from the beginning. Make sure the thread path is correct.

Verify the bobbin is installed and turning the correct direction in the bobbin case and that the bobbin thread is threaded through the bobbin tension mechanism.

Set the upper tension to the midway point between high & low number--this may require some adjustment for your particular machine.

Pull the bobbin thread to the top of your sewing project before beginning to stitch.
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

Re-test your machine on a scrap quilt sandwich (make sure the walking foot is installed correctly and that the presser foot is lowered when beginning to stitch).

Consult the owner's manual for instructions for presser foot pressure. The pressure may need to be adjusted because you are dealing with a sandwich that is thicker than regular fabric.

You may also try changing the type and size sewing machine needle you are using. Using a Top Stitch or Microtext needle will help the needle to penetrate the fabric sandwich easier. A Top Stitch needle has a larger groove to protect the thread as it pierces the fabric which helps prevent looping.

Also, verify the thread is not too small for the needle's eye.

The thread for the top needle just sews and loops onto the lower thread


I think you are saying that there is a loop showing on the bottom of the lower thread stitch. If the lower stitch looks correct and not bunching, you will need to change the tension on the upper stitch. Make sure that your threads are firmly inserted within the discs also before adjusting the tension. It doesn't take much to change the tension so take it slowly.

Singer 2517c. When sewing, the bottom stitch is using to much thread, excessive amounts & the stitch isn't tight. I've tried all settings & have used a new bobbin. I'm at a loss......


Your description isn't very clear. When you say the "bottom stitch is using too much thread" Do you mean you see lots of loopy threads on top of the seam? Or do you mean you see loops on the bottom under the fabric? If your loops on the bottom, that means the top tension is too loose, you've not remembered to put the presser foot down, you have not threaded the top thread properly... Start by rethreading carefully with the presser foot UP. Then do a test stitch, remembering to put the presser foot down. If you still get loops underneath... tighten the tension.

If your loops are on the top of the fabric. loosen the top tension... then do a test seam... and if you still have loops loosen again and repeat. If you start to see loops on the bottom... tighten the tension a bit.

Good luck

Bottom thread on Juki DDL-5550 is coming up. Top thread seems to lie flat


Check your upper thread at the spool. I've had industrial machines randomly throw a loop around the spool holder spindle which is hidden under the spool itself.

Also check your threading guide to be absolutely certain you are threading it correctly. Also make sure needle/thread diameter are suitable for each other.

Good luck.

The cotton on my bernina 801 keeps jamming


Loops on bottom indicate a top thread tension problem.

Make sure needle is the correct size and not bent or broken
Make sure it is threaded properly with the lever UP.

Do a test stitch.

If it still loops below... tighten the top tension and do another test stitch... keep doing this until the stitch is balanced.

BTW... always grasp and hold both threads when starting a seam.

Thread tension


try changing the needle first--make sure the needle is the correct one for the fabric being sewed.
if you've adjusted the top tension & the bottom stitch still looks the same
it's possible that the top tension dial is needing to be checked to see if it's
working correctly

New Home ss2015 machine. I am having trouble with the thread tension. I have loops on the bottom. I have cleaned the bobbin case, changed the needle, re-threaded and moved the upper tension all the way up....


try adjusting the top tension to 3 & if it doesn't stop the looping, try 4 but I wouldn't go any higher than 5,, if changing the top tension doesn't help then I suggest taking the machine in to have it serviced. the bottom tension is more difficult to do,, it's also very possible that the top tension dial is messed up & needs replacing. only a sewing machine shop can tell for sure.

Why won't my Bernina Activa 140 sew the blind hem stitch?


Are you absolutley sure you're not getting a problem with stitch formation on, for example, wide zig-zag. Check again, using a different colour top and bottom and make sure that the stitch is being formed properly with only the top colour on top and bottom colour on the bottom. It sounds as though the bottom loop is not being picked-up by the hook properly. Make sure you've thoroughly cleaned-out any fluff under the stitch-plate and remove the hook/shuttle and give the hook race a good clean and give it a single drop of oil, even if you've got the lightweight part-plastic hook/shuttle fitted.
