Question about Brother LS-2125 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Sewing straight lines...

My machine is only a couple years old, but recently it began bunching up thread on one side when I sew straight, simple lines. It seems like something between the spool of thread and the needle is loose and not keeping the thread taught, but I don't know much about how sewing machines work, so I don't know where to start to fix it. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

    Hello MakikiChris. Thanks for the link. I read through it and the problem I was having seemed a bit different. I recently took a few panels off my machine though to try to see what was occuring, and it has worked fine since then, so if it starts up again I'll re-check the points mentioned in the post you sent me.

    Thanks for the reply!

I have a Singer 2263 which is old but not used often. I am making aprons for Christmas, I made 3 and all the sudden the bobbin started bunching together. What can I do?

hi Sue.
Why does my bobbin thread keep bunching up? 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. Sometimes thread bunching can be caused by something as simple as the tension dial being inadvertently turned.

Install a brand new needle.
Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.

When I use my Singer model 1120 for sewing straight lines, the thread bunches up underneath. What is the problem?

Be sure that the machine has been cleaned and oiled. Check to be sure the machine is threaded correctly. Check to make sure the bobbin was wound properly.

How do I set the tension on the White Sewing Machine Model 1599? I am trying to do a straight stitch but the thread is bunching up on the bottom side of the fabric.

You can download the manual from the Singer sewing machine web-site. Go to customer support/ product manuals/ and enter 1599. You'll then be able to download a pdf of the White sewing machine manual for free!

Stitches are gathering on backside when sewing on patches

This is caused by a bent needle. Try a different needle that is straight. When they get the slightest bed in them the stitching will end on the back side only

My new sewing machine, just opened to use, is bunching thread on the underneath or bobbin side when I attempt to straight stitch. What is causing this to happen. Thanks.

re thread the top and bobbin threads

after pulling up the bobbin thread pull both threads to the back and hol them when stitching the first few stitches

with out holing the threads the machine will pull the thread into the machine and bunch the thread

I had the same problem and it was so frustrating! It was happening to me because I wasn't using the right size needle. Go up a couple of needle sizes and see if that helps.
