You will want to check three things:

1. check the threading of the bobbin. Make sure it is placed in the case the right direction, ie so it is turning forwards as it comes out not reversed. Also make sure it is pulling out through the appropriate spot, usually there's a slot so that the thread comes through the top of the casing

2. Make sure the bobbin is inserted all the way in. Often it will sort of 'click' when it's in the proper place and should stay there. This is the key thing I would check.

3. check the top thread tension and make sure it is not too loose

Most likely it is one of those things that is causing you the problem. You can also recheck the threading of the top spool thread to the needle.

Thread keeps winding around my bobbin holder. What could I be doing wrong?


Misthreading, most likely. Take all the thread off and out of the machine and clean the machine, especially around the feed dog and bobbin case areas. Rethread from scratch, remembering to thread the upper part of the machine with the presser foot up, and make sure the bobbin is sitting in the bobbin case right way around. Fetch up the bobbin thread and hold it and the top thread end together behind the presser foot while you take the first few stitches of the seam.

After threading the machine, when I try to sew, the thread keeps tangling in the bobbin. I'll be most grateful if you can tell me what to do about this. Blessings, LaVerne


I have a feeling that you have the bobbin thread feeding the wrong way, flip your bobbin around and see if that makes a difference. Good luck to you, hope this works.

Bobbin Thread is "birdnesting"


Get out the manual and refer to the maintenance section for cleaning the machine.

Especially the bobbin area. You want to make sure the area around the bobbin case is free of lint and thread.

Use a new bobbin and re-thread the machine, with the presser foot UP.

Install a new needle, again according to the directions in the manual. Installed incorrectly can lead to mis-stitching.

If the problem persits, the timing may need adjusting.

This should be done by the sewing machine tech for Kenmore.

Sewusa.com has a guide for this in the repair section, but you could end up with more problems.

I can't keep the lower thread from getting tangled. I have rewound bobbins, cleaned the bobbin case, made sure the bobbin case is in the correct position, and played with the upper thread tension. When...


Ensure that you have routed the bobbin thread properly. Also, if the bobbin case is not installed properly it will give you this problem. Ensure that the protrusion is touching the spring on the body of the machine.

Burnette 65 bobbin tangling can't adjust thread tension


Have you replaced the needle with a new one? Your needle may be bent or in wrong, or the wrong size. You may have a bad needle. Check that the upper thread path is running freely and is not tangled or wrapped around anything. Make sure that the bobbin is unwinding in the correct direction as well, most bobbins, this is clockwise as the bobbin faces you. If you are using inexpensive thread, it could be the thread that is the culprit. Uneven thread in the needle will not flow through the needle properly, and cause bunching as well. Save it for the bobbin, and use good thread in the top.

Thread tangles under throat plate while embroidering


Could the little hook that is stuck over the bobbin area be the thread cutter? My thread cutter gets stuck there and I have to turn my machine off and then try to use the cutter to reset it to its "resting" position.

A horrible tangle


This is a bit late, could the bobbin case not be seated properly? You need to put it into place and then turn it clockwise until it seats soundly in the opening. Also, check for burrs...the needle may have left a rough mark on the plastic or metal in the bobbin area. A piece of batting, or even an old knee hi should snag on any rough areas.
