When you have seeewen and you have a mess on the back, take a pair of tweezers and pull on the threads on the top, is there a lot of slack, if so your top tension is loose, even though it is on the bobbin side if it is tight then the bobbin tension needs adjusting (usually a small screw on the side of the case) and just barely turn the screw about a quarter turn until it's sewing the top tension is a screw like looking thing usally right above the needle

Husqvarna Huskystar 207 Sewing Machine not stitching. It won't pull the bobin thread up to sew.


Be sure not to use Singer Needles. They are longer than standard needles. Don't know if this helps, but I did this once on my Huskystar 207 and that is what happened. It also damaged the bobbin thread.

hi there
the tension depends on thikness of material but you must use heavy thread on needle and thin thread on bobin case .
- you must be sew fiew stitches firist and look if losse stitch from down you must tight tension slowly sloly and if there is losse stitches from upper you must tight screw for bobin case spring slowly slowly until stitch format be agood condation.

I reloaded my bobin and began to sew. The thread


Sometimes it may look like the bobbin is the problem, when it is actually the machine was threaded with the presser foot down.

Refer to the manual for your machine and recheck the direction the thread is be feeding from the bobbin and that it is going through the proper guide(s).

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up.

When threaded with the foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter. When you sew, the stitches are loose and loopy.

I am new at sewing, my machine is sewing small stitches and then larger stitches, I need it to just sew small sitches


Check to make sure the stitch length gauge isn't loose allowing it to jump between longer & shorter stitches, or that it isn't set on variable stitching. Something that could create this too is if you're holding the fabric too tightly so that the fabric feed doesn't pull the fabric through smoothly & easily - allow the machine to pull the fabric through on it's own and control the speed with your footfeed, not your hands. Hope this helps! Have a good time!

Lower thread tension is too loose but no adjustment seems to work


From your description it appears that you have tried tension settings on the upper tension control adjustment knob without success.
Check that the bobin tension is adjusted correctly by taking out the bobin complete with the spool.
Pull the cotton thread and it should be a smooth light pressure if the tension is correct. If it is tight to pull or pulls freely then adjust the tension screw which is found on the outside of the bobbin. The screw is very small and requires a minature size screwdriver. The adjustment will only be a slight turn of the screw one way or the other to obtain the correct tension(depending if it was loose or tight).
Once this is set reinstall the bobin and tread up the machine, hopefully with the upper tension set at approx."2" the machine will sew correctly.

My Singer 2639 Bobbin case pops up out of position after few stitches and needle hits case, Singer says it needs retiming and take it to repair. I cannot continue paying repair as this happens too often.


Hi, I used to have the same problem. I pulled the whole bobin casing out, cleaned it oiled it. When I put it back in, I made sure the actual bobin was turing the right direction so the cotton didnt snag and pull casing up.

If you havent already tried this give it a go.Its amazing how much gunk gets in there.

BOTTOM STITCH IS ALWAYS LOOSE


If the top stitch is loose, then you need to tighten the bobbin tension: if the bottom stitch is loose, tighten the top tension. Hope this helps. It could also be the size needle and thread you are using for a particular fabric. Different fabrics require different notions.
