My Singer portable (#6202/62120) keeps stitching nicely on top, but the bottom stitching is all knotted up! It's driving me crazy! I have tried everything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Jennie

The bottom side is effected by the TOP tension. First make sure the top is threaded correctly. Best thing to do is completely unthread it and then thread it again. Then check the tension and make sure it is not too loose. Check the needle to make sure it is inserted correctly and not bent.

Once you've done that then you can take a look at the bobbin tension and make sure it isn't too loose too. Make sure the bobbin is in the case correctly, wound correctly and that the bobbin case is completely inserted right. You will hear and or feel a slight "click" when it goes in correctly,

Testimonial: "Your suggestions are duly noted. I will certainly try everything you suggested, from threading over again to listening for the click of the bobbin."

The pile up of top thread


Is this in embroidery mode or sewing mode? It may be the top tension is off (in my experience knots on bottom is bobbin issue, knots on top is upper tension issue).

I own a singer 14sh654. Bottom stitch really loose,don't know what to set any of the dials at to make it work right. The top stitch is neat tight bottom all over the place


Hi. Loose stitching underneath means you need to increase the upper tension. Try just a little at a time, using scrap fabric of similar weight to what you want to sew.

HAVING A PROBLEM WITH MACHINE JAMMING UP AROUND BOBBIN AREA WHEN TRYING TO FREEHAND EMBROIDER IT STARTS OFF OK THEN QUICKLY JAMS UP HAVE ADJUSTED THE FOOTPLATE SO THERE ARE NO TEETH


Check your tension first by sewing a wide zig zag stitch. Does the top of the stitch and the bottom look identical? The sides of the stitch should look like a hole where the thread disappears to the other side, with no extra thread from the other side coming through. It also should lie flat and not be puckering in the middle. When it looks identical and no puckering the tension is correct. Use the same type of material and thread you will be using for the embordery. The bottom side of the stitch is effected by the TOP tension. The top side of the stitch by the BOTTOM tension.

Are you stretching the material you're hand embordering with a hoop?

The dog feed needs to be totally down and if your machine has an adjustment the tension on the foot should be lessened too. (not all machines allow for that adjustment).

Last but not least make sure you have the right needle for the job and material.

Jamming up in the bobbin area would most likely be from the top tension being too loose but also make sure the material isn't getting pulled down in by stretching it with an embordery hoop. Do use a presser foot... a wide clear one is best.
