Thread Bunching

Postby marti » Mon Jan 01, 2018 12:55 pm

All of a sudden (without any changes) my top thread started bunching on the bottom of the fabric. I tried everything: new top thread, rethreading the bobbing, changing top tension, cleaning around the bobbin). Nothing works. Before taking it in for service, are there any suggestions?

Floss the tension discs, in case there is a bit of thread stuck up there? Fold clean cotton in half, and floss. Other than that, I have no suggestions.

I took the machine in for service. The problem was solved by oiling the bobbin case!

Thanks for the "rest of the story"! So it was the case and not the hook? Wow.
