thread bunching under the bobbin plate
My sewing machine thread is bunching under the bobbin plate. Ive threaded the machine and the bobbin properly with sturdy thread, presser foot up with a sharp needle in its correct position. Ive dusted, oiled and read the manual. I'm able to bring the bobbin thread up with the main thread to start stitching but if i continue with the hand wheel it gets caught up under the plate, around the moving case that the machine uses to hold the bobbin in place. If i keep going the case gets pulled upwards by the bobbin thread that is still in its groove. (the same thing happens when i do it with material in place and use either the hand wheel or my foot...)
i think its time to take it to get looked at unless anyone knows how i can fix it myself. i was doing some industrial sewing when this problem began.
