I can pull the thread from the spool out

I have an old singer sewing machine. After sewing a line, I decided to test the strength of the thread. I'm able to tug the thread which came from the spool right out of the fabric. What does this mean?

I solved this problem by buying a new Apollo Singer bobbin. It was $12.00 at a local sewing machine store. This bobbin is everywhere, since it goes with about 30 Singer sewing machine models.

I had to do a little adjusting to the new bobbin. 1/3 of a turn loosening the tiny screws.

After sewing a few stitches, the machine gets jammed. the top stitch looks fine, but underneath there's a ton of thread all bunched up (top spool thread)


What you are seeing is called "bird's nesting." There are two main reasons for "bird's nesting."
The first one is the thread not between the tension disks. That allows the thread to be pulled from the spool instead of pulling the thread tight from underneath. Always make sure to always put up your presser foot before you thread the tension disks. I also check the thread after I finish to make sure the top thread has good tension on it before sewing.
The second reason is the thread is not being pulled by the take up lever. Make sure you see it being pulled by the take up lever before you start sewing. If not, rethread it.

Good luck.

I have a Quantum CXL Singer sewing machine and the thread keeps breaking. It will make about 3 stitches and breaks. It is breaking in the same place.


Make sure the thread coming off the spool is not wrapping around the spool spindle. Install a brand new needle. Remove ALL the thread from the machine. Clean bobbin area of any dust, lint, threads. Set upper tension to the midpoint. RAISE the presser foot and then totally re-thread the machine from beginning to end verifying the sequence is correct. Test.

How do I get my Singer sewing machine to sew right again. It is giving me way toooo much thread from the top spool, underneith the fabric it looks like a big ball of thread.


Start right from the beginning, make sure the presser foot is up when you thread the machine, make sure the presser foot is up, top tension should be about 4 or 5, make sure you use a good mercerised thread, make sure the bobbin tension is not too tight, you should only be able to pull the thread through with slight resistence, if it is too tight slacken the large screw on the bobbin case about a quarter of a tutn at a time and test.

Thread is not pulling off spool while trying to fill a bobbin.


There are a couple things that come to mind. If your plate is not pushed all the way up where it engages the metal tab on the bobbin, it will not wind properly. Second, if you are using a generic or an old bobbin, you need to replace it. I have seen many machines drive the owners crazy and it turned out to be a bad bobbin.

How do you thread a singer merritt 4530 sewing machine


all machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.Your Industrial machine has a long groove on one side of the needle. This long groove must be on the left side of the needle when it is inserted properly.
