    check your bobbin, is it in right???? rethread and if that doesn't help, I don't know, tension is tricky

    Take it one step at a time. Check the bobbin holder, is it threaded right, is the bobbin in the right way? Re thread the machine, check that you have the same thread on the machine and on the bobbin. You can use different threads, but do this for now, to try and right the problem first.

    Clean out any lint under needle plate, and around the bobbin holder if there is any, and a spot of oil is always useful. Check if there are any stray threads under the needle plate, or where the thread goes between tension discs. Best of luck.

    Start with rethreading the machine, then take out the bobbin and clean out the bobbin area REALLY good, then put bobbin back in. Also sometimes a new needle may help. If all this doesn't help I don't know what else to suggest , sorry . Hate when that happens it is so frustrating :twisted: Hope you get it fixed

    I'm trying to picture your problem, and would just tell you to take the thread off and remove the bobbin--then after a couple of deep breathes (:)) put them in again. This way it's freshly loaded and ready for a test ride on a scrap of material.
    Good luck--I hate it when this happens. Hope you get to enjoy your sewing today :)

    Just take a deep breath.
    Start over and rethread top & bobbin.
    You shouldn't use anything but sewing machine oil.
    Other oils are too heavy and will cause major problems.
