What are the dial for tension to be set at.


Hello Michele, I would check to see if the machine is threaded correctly. Your problem could be in the thread take up arm and thread tensioner.

What should the tension be on for this machine?


Most of the time if the bobbin thread is coming through on top it means that the bobbin thread is too loose and/or the top thread is too tight and is pulling the thread too much. check and make sure that there isn't anything in the top tensioner that could be increasing the tension like lint. Good luck.

My Bernina Bernette 65 has a problem with the thread bunching up every 10-15 stiches on the bottom. Some of the thread stitches on the bottom of the fabric are in a straight line, and then the thread will...


try a new needle--one that is for the fabric being sewed
then try to adjust the top thread tension again, if the stitches remain loose and the tension won't adjust then the tension knob needs to be checked to see if there is something wrong with it.
also check to make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, if the bobbin is not turned the right way in the bobbin case the sewing machine will not stitch correctly.

I am working on a small quilt. Using the walking foot. When I turned the quilt over to check the stitches on the back I noticed they are very loose. I have never had this problem before. The back stitches...


Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.

The bobbin thread is loopy on the under side of the fabric. I tried adjusting the tension setting but it didn't help at all.


Loops stitches on the underside is typically from the TOP tension being too loose, however it can also be the bobbin tension is too tight, or a problem with the needle. I would check them in that order.

Hold the bobbin thread and let the bobbin dangle. A slight shake of your hand should allow the bobbin to move downward (lets more thread out) but not so much that it just drops to the floor. When you put it in again and try sewing look at the top stitches. Do they look overly tight? THen the bobbin tension is too tight. The stitching should look the same top and bottom with no loops.

If both tensions seem to be alright check to see if the needle is: 1. the right size and type of the fabric 2. not bent

That should fix your problem :)

Sounds like the machine needs retiming and the bottom gear checked undewr the bobbin case area, I can attach timing instructions if you email me drivewithken@blueyonder.co.uk
