I discovered that when the thread is knotting up on the underside of the material that it is usually the threading on top and has nothing to do with the bobbin.

Brother LS-2125 bunches bobbin thread then won't sew.

Check your stitch sample. Dollars to donuts it's the top thread bird nesting (also called thread nesting) under the fabric. Issues appearing under the fabric is usually top thread related. Problems appearing on the top of the fabric is usually bobbin thread related.

Remove the top thread from your machine.
Be sure to start with a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top.

My thread keeps looping on bottom Have changed tension, needle rethreaded and changed bobbin nothing helps what am I doing wrong?

not sure if this will help you...Check Your Tension Settings. Looping underneath the fabric usually occurs when there is not enough tension in the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. Sometimesthread buching can be caused by something as simple as the tension dial being inadvertently turned.

Bobbin thread bunching up on bottom side od material while sewinginto a mess, while top thread fine. HOW DO I fix this, please.

Hi, this is a lack of lower tension. Check to make sure your bobbin is seated correctly and that you have used the correct thread path. Check the tension by drawing some thread from the bobbin with your hand, if it reels off too easily, the tension hook for the bobbin is too loose, tighten it down a tiny bit with a small screw driver and try again. If the bobbin tension is normal, than the problem may be your upper tension, if it is too tight it can cause your bobbin to snarl. If a tension adjustment does not fix the problem, you may need to seek a specialist.

Bottom thread jams

Could be incorrect thread or needle size for the material, or old thread, blunt needle. or incorrect threading of the needle. Do you make sure the presser foot is raised when you thread it? :)

Embroidering in blue thread, and the white bobbin thread was coming through on the material. Adjusted the tension to -8, sprayed the bobbin casing and area lightly with WD40, changed the bobbin, changed...

The white bobbin thread was showing on the top of the material correct? Make sure bobbin thread is in the tension correctly, check the top thread spool and make sure thread is not caught around it, if you have a manual top tension make sure that is set correctly. Personally I would never use wd40 in a sewing machine, sewing machine specific oil is always better. You seem to be describing two different problems. The thread bunching is probably from the thread jump out of the take up lever.

Help trouble-shoot jammed machine

Try these suggestions

1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed

2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide

3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case

4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever

5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads

6. Also could be a timing problem, and the machine would need to be checked.

Thread bunching and jamming in bobbin area

what you have is known as bird nesting and is from the needle tension not being tight enough
before you thread the needle pull the thread and the correct tension is when there is noticeable resistance to pulling the thread
always check adjustments using scrap material
