I have a singer-inspiration machine and it appears that the thread keeps getting caught up in the bobbin area so my thread birdnests. I am new to sewing and this is a new machine.

"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

Bobbin tread bunches and jams machine


If the bobbin is inserted with the thread spinning the wrong direction this will cause "birdnesting" - thread build up under needle plate, you need to cut thread to get the item off machine. flip the bobbin over into the case and try again. Also make sure you remove ALL thread caught up in "Birdsnest" when they happen.

The thread gets caught up in bobbin area


This mess is commonly referred to as a bird's nest or 'birdnesting' and it's usually caused by incorrect top tension and that's often caused by the top thread not in the correct path. (For me, I occasionally forget to thread through the take-up lever.) A damaged needle can also cause birdnesting.

Brand New 2263SImple. Thread keeps getting caught up in the hook in the bobbin area. Went by manual, still does it.


check your needle to see if it's damaged
some sewing machines do this when the upper thread comes off the thread take up lever
make sure thread is thread thru all the thread guides
check bobbin area for lint & loose threads

Bobbin case is popping out, and machine is birdnesting


Usually when this happens the bobbin is in wrong, replace it make sure the thread is going out the right way, make sure there is no lint or small pieces of thread around or underneath the bobbin area. Make sure you thread it with the foot up. Also make sure you are usng the right bobbin for the machine. They can easy get mxed up.

Threading problem on Singer Sewing machine Inspiration 4206


This can be caused by incorrect bobbin tension or the bobbin is in backwards. Take out the bobbin and put it in according to the instructions for your Singer. If you still have the same problem try tightening the bobbin tension. Please ask if you have any questions.

Tangled bobbin thread


Okay. I had this problem too. try taking the bobbin casing out. I had a bit of thread lintg caught in a remote area of the under-plate area. Blow it out with canned air and oil your machine. That should help. It fixed mine.
