You probably need to adjust the tension. Let me give you a general lesson in adjusting tension that works for any machine. Also, I suggest you thread the top of your machine with a different color thread than the bobbin-it makes it much easier to see what is going on.

Thread your machine with the presser foot UP. The disks that control the tension (threadgoes through them) are tightened up if the foot is down. Change the machine tension with the presser foot DOWN.Because the disks won't be engaged (see above) if the foot is up, the diskswon't move. Start at the middle setting, 3. Go up to tighten, decrease toloosen. Each machine is different, even 2 different machines of the same model.The best thing to do is start at 3 and use a different color in the top andbobbin thread so you can easily see what changes to the tension do to yourstitches. Now use a straight stitch a sew 3 or so inches. Take a lookat the top and bottom of the fabric. You don't want to see any (or at least notmuch) of the other color showing from the other side. Loops on the bottom of the fabric means you need to tighten(increase) your top tension. If you're stitches on the bottom are causingpuckering, then you need to loosen you're top tension. For the most part, youreally don't want to touch your bobbin tension-leave that to a repairtechnician. The factory setting shouldn't be touched except by someone whoreally knows what they're doing. Keep sewing a few inches at a time until you have the resultsyou want. Now you're tension is where you need it!

Top stich is normal, bottom stitch is loose


Tighten up the top tension so it will pull the bobbin thread up. The top and bobbin threads should meet in the middle of the fabric.

Singer Sewmate, the zig zag stitch is perfect on the bottom of the fabric, but lopsided on the top, how do I fix this?


This could be a combination of two things, to much down pressure on the spring loaded foot on top or the fabric distorting it, the other is a top stich tension issue adjust tension in and out to see if this improves the stich.
good luck

Back thread loose and loopy - tension


If you have the instruction manual, you might read the chapter which describes the proper adjustment for threads and fabrics.
If you do not have one, try to find it on eBay. It is the huge source of everything.

Thread is clumping underneath


Unfortunately, the machine's timing may have been adversely affected during the jam and removal of the fabric. Here's something that may resolve the issue if it is not timing-related:

Install a brand new needle.
Remove all the thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread!
Rethread from the beginning and verify the thread path is correct.
If you have a smoothly-wound bobbin, try that. (A bobbin that you describe will contribute to sewing issues.)
Install and thread the bobbin--confirm the bobbin is spinning the right direction in the bobbin case.
Re-test your machine.

If you are having issues with the bobbin not winding smoothly, there are standalone bobbin winders for about $30 on the market (local JoAnn's or on the internet) called Sidewinder. Confirm that your machine bobbins will work (there are a few machines that won't, I think Singer). This is a very good accessory to have since you can wind bobbins without having to unthread the machine and also saves wear & tear on your machine.

Loose stich on bottom of fabric


Hi. The problem is that your upper tension is too loose. It needs to be tighter in order to pull the bobbin thread up.

I bought a second hand Juki industrial machine , model DDL 5550-7, but struggle to get the tension of the stitches right. where do you set the lower stitches tension


upper tension sets the lower thread tension (upper thread is what you see on the underside of the fabric). Bobbin tension is for the thread you see on the top of the fabric
