My bobbin thread is not able to feed properly

Hello! I hope that you can help me repair my sewing machine, I am lost with out it and do not want to take to get serviced since I believe it is probably something so easy to fix... I was sewing a pair of jeans when my needle broke. I took apart the machine to get the tip of the needle and thoroughly cleaned my machine. I went to thread it again and now the bobbin thread will not feed to the needle. Any ideas? Please help. Thank you.

Machine will not sew, the thread is tangled and matted up on cloth side next to machine. I have re threaded, replaced bobbin. Still jams up.

Hello,
I believe that the bobbin adjustment screw is loose, you need to hold the thread and see how fast it comes out of the bobbin, then tighten the screw until it just barely comes out. You may need to adjust a few times to get it right. If the bobbin screw is too loose, the thread feeds too fast and will jam up as you indicate.

Hope this is of some help

Hello

Make sure your feeddogs are up. That is the little jagged looking plate under the pressure foot. There should be a setting on your machine that will move it up and down.

If they are up then the bobbin is not in correctly. If it is a normal round bobbin that fits in a bobbin case, hold the bobbin in front of you so that the thread end is on top and the thread is going away from you, and slide it into the bobbin case. Feed the thread through the right openings in the bobbin case. When you pull the thread end the bobbin should turn clockwise.

Never hand-wind bobbins. Instead, use the accompanying bobbin winder which is attached to most machines,bobbin casings must be oiled regularly to prevent problems with the bobbin turning properly. The bobbin, when inserted properly into the bobbin casing, should spin counter-clockwise when thread is pulled.

Check the way your machine is threaded. Completely un-thread your sewing machine and re-thread it. Remember to always thread your machine with the presser foot up.

Check the bobbin and be sure the bobbin is threaded correctly and that the bobbin case is correctly threaded. Be sure the bobbin is in the bobbin case in the correct direction.

Always watch for bobbin wear, especially on the plastic type of bobbins. If the edges of the plastic are showing abrasions, the size of the bobbin has changed and may be the culprit. Although the size change is minute, it allows the bobbin to wobble in the case and changes the tension.

Bobbin not looping top thread to make a stitch

Get a manual for your machine so you know how to properly thread the machine - you need to be sure the thread goes through the guides in proper sequence and - ALWAYS thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up.

You need to be sure the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the correct guides.

Check the needle to see if it is installed correctly and is not bent.

Most sewing machine needles are installed with the flat side toward the back of the machine.

After proper threading and bobbin feeding, hold onto the top thread tail and lower the needle down and back up to pull up the bobbin thread.

Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

You did not provide the make and model of your machine so I can only suggest if you do not have a manual, search the Internet. Singer and Brother have downloads. Sewusa has many brands/models.
