INTRODUCTION

We have seen a lot of complaints from beginners stating that their singer sewing machine upper thread gets caught in bobbin. Well, it isn’t really just limited to singer sewing machines, all of the sewing machines are prone to have this problem.

But don’t worry, it isn’t your machine, actually it’s just a slight neglection you don’t know you’ve been doing.

So, what causes this problem?

The most probable cause of the problem is that the bobbin is not wound properly. It may be loose or there may be a problem with the pickup. So, that’s not such a big problem, is it?

The solution is pretty easy. Simply take the bobbin out. Check if it is wound properly. To do that, we all know that if we pull the thread, the bobbin should spin in the opposite direction. So, try that.

If you don’t feel constant tension while pulling the thread, then indeed it’s not wound properly. Anyhow, just rewind the bobbin and make sure you wind it tightly this time. Also, double check after placing the bobbin in its position by pulling again.
