Help!! i own 2 sewing machines, the one i'm having trouble with was working fine until i changed the thread and the bobbin, i inserted, when i sew the bobbin's thread is all tangled up i looked up how i was supposed to inserted and that's how i did it and it still doing that. when i got it, it didn't have a bobbin case, plus if i get one for it it doesn't fit...what should i do please!!!

Hey there.

I bet if you look at your bobbin, it will be wound a little wonky? Nothing that will be obvious at first glance, but will once you look at the bobbin for a moment. If your threads are not lined up like soldiers, straight up, straight down and even on all ends. If you have a cone shape to your bobbin, unwind it by hand and then rewind it by machine. Just hold the thread in one hand and guide it up and down the bobbin as it rewinds itself.

Don't forget to read the first post in this thread!!!

If this does not solve your problem, are you using a new needle?

Thnxs i take a look at it...the bobbin was done with the machine i did it i watch it and i did it all again with 3 different bobbins and it still did it...its a new needle...this started when i changed the thread color i needed a new color 4 a new project and that's when all started to happen

Would love to thank all you very help full ladies on here. I have been given my moms old machine because she could not use it any more. When i received it the thread kept bunching and no matter what i did i could not fix it. Then after reading this thread today I pulled the machine out of storage and tried re threading it, Then i pulled that sucker completely apart and found that it was caked in fluff from years of use. I cleaned it and adjusted the stitching size and it now works like a new machine. Thank you again ladies for helping me fix my machine.

Try clean the ring around the bobin (where you put the bobin). This is the case with my machine. Or you need to  adjust the tension of the thread, and as previously written, change the needle.

Are you sure the thread is going through the needle in the correct direction?
