Sewing outdoor polyester ( denier) medium weight with outdoor polyester thread. bottom stitch is not straight? evenly spaced but irregular in alignment. Help?


increase the needle thread tension
the bottom stitch is a direct result of the needle movement pulling the bobbin thread up to the hole so for the bottom stitch to be irregular , so is the top stitch

How to adjust the bobbin tension.


According to the manual, you should not need to adjust the bobbin tension (and I located other sites which stated the bobbin tension cannot be adjusted on this machine). Apparently, all the tension adjustment is accomplished through the upper thread::
"EN Thread Tension Upper thread tension Basic thread tension setting: "4". (1) To increase the tension, turn the dial to the next number up. To reduce the tension, turn the dial to the next number down. A. Normal thread tension for straight stitch sewing. B. Thread tension too loose for straight stitch sewing. Turn dial to higher number. C. Thread tension too tight for straight stitch sewing. Turn dial to lower number. D. Normal thread tension for zig zag and decorative sewing. Correct thread tension is when a small amount of the upper thread appears on the bottom side of fabric. Lower thread tension The bobbin tension has been set correctly at the factory, so you do not need to adjust it. Please note: - Proper tension setting is important for strong seams. - There is no single tension setting appropriate for all stitch functions, thread or fabric. - A balanced tension (identical stitches both top and bottom) is usually only desirable for straight stitch construction sewing. - 90% of all sewing will be between "3" and "5". - For zig zag and decorative sewing stitch functions, thread tension should generally be less than for straight stitch sewing. - For all decorative sewing you will always obtain a nicer stitch and less fabric puckering when the upper thread appears on the bottom side of your fabric. 1 A B C 22 D"

Doing further research, I found this statement on a machine review site:
"After reading reviews online from where I've bought my drop-in bobbin machines, I think many of the negative reviews are due to the bobbin thread coming up without laying across the bobbin. It can cause the stitches to look very sloppy and no amount of tension adjusting can fix the stitches."

There are several machine review sites wherein 4423 owners stated their disappointment in the 4423's performance. Some said the machine failed almost immediately and others said the machines developed problems when sewing heavy fabric.

whether its bias or straight does not matter to machine. loosen the bobbin tension and put more tension on take up spring by inserting a screwdriver in the slot of the top thread tensioner. turn to right.

try adjusting the top thread tension and see if that helps
also try changing the thread.
also change the needle--make sure it's the right needle for the fabric
being sewed.

?The top stitches are fine; the bottom stitches are very loose.


Firstly check the tension on your bobbin case is sufficient or if the thread is actually into the spring fully, this is most likely cause of bottom thread loose stitching. You can test bobbin case tension adjustment using the "Dangle" test, here is a link to some good images to help.
http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Repair/Thread_Tension_Settings.htm

If you look closely and there is actually looping on the underside then is is the top thread coming to the underside and not being tensioned back up; so top thread is not under tension enough or at all.

Set top tension to 4-5, then recheck the threading up and and always thread with the presser foot raised as this opens up the tension device so the thread can seat in fully. Once you've threaded to just before the needle thread guide, lower the presser foot and pull the thread downwards, it should be very firm if its under tension.

Tension devices can get gunked up or fail with use so if you can't get it to feel firm, it will need a technican to investigate further.

Stitching problems with my sewing machine


Make sure first of all that you have a perfect needle in and the correct way round, failing that you may need to retime the machine, if you email me I will attach instructions.

My mother has a Bernina record machine which has for the last 35 years not worked longer than a metre or so stitching on the most basic stitch without tangling the thread on the bottom spool. It has been...


Try threading the machine with the presser foot up and see if this helps.

When the foot is down during the threading, the thread does not enter the tension control as it should, then when you start to sew, the upper thread has no tension and does not form a stitch with the bobbin thread.

CONSEW 206RB5 TOP THREAD NOT FORMING STITCHES AND BREAKING


you have your thread tension too tight that's why it is pulling the bottom stitch all the way through it looks good from the bottom but not good on top. Its pulled the stitch all the way through the material.
I had my own upholstery shop 18 yrs and tension gets you every time.Just loosen the top tension.

Thread tension problem when sewing on heavy fabrics


Sometimes when I need to use heavy thread for top stitching to reinforce a seam that has come undone, I will use the heavy thread on the top and regular thread on the bottom. I haven't tried it the other way around for hemming but I would think it would work. I do not currently have a Bernina.
