SOURCE: tention guide

It is normal for the tension to be relaxed when the presser foot is raised, so , is there any tension when the presser foot is down, even if only a little more ?

Check there is no lint built up between the tension plates as this is common, and will cause the tension to be affected as you describe.

Unusual but possible is that the lever mechanism which relaxes the tension from the presser foot to the tension dials is seized or "gummed up" with lint and old oil.........when was your last full service done ? If it was more then 2 or 3 years, just like a motor car, regular servicing will pay dividends in enhanced performance and longer life.

SOURCE: I have a brand new Pfaff GrandQuilter 18.8 and am

For a brand new machine, your dealer should help you get it set up properly and give you lessons. Every machine is slightly different. You may just have something as simply as an ill-fitted bobbin case or wrong needle inserted. If it is making a "banging" noise, don't force it to sew. Walk through your instruction manual step-by-step for threading and call your dealer for more help.

SOURCE: TENSION IS MESSED UP ON MACHINE. WHAT ARE THE

The top tension dial is usually standard set on #3. The rest have nothing to do with tensions but make sure that your foot that you put the fabric under is up before you start threading the top

SOURCE: how to adjust lower tension on pfaff hobby 370

On the bobbin case is a screw. Mark the case with a tiny dab of nail polish and the edge of the screw. This will tell you where you began.

Turn the screw: right to tighten and left to loosen.

This is an adjustment that is usually not needed unless you are changing the weight of the thread being used on the bobbin.

What are the correct thread tension numbers on thePfaff hobby grand quilter 1200


Usually, the standard tension for upper thread is midway between high & low numbers. However, every machine differs and may need to be tweaked. Unfortunately, finding the correct tension is generally a test and adjust method. Be sure you are using a brand new needle and good quality thread.

Tension on my Pfaff Grandquilter


check carefully that the top thread is actually gong between the tension plates and not behind them and jamming on the retainer bolt
before threading the needle place the thread up to the point of threading the needle and pull on the thread , proper tension is when there is a slight resistance to pulling the thread
If it takes excessive force to pull the thread then it is caught around something so follow the thread all the way back to the spool to see where the problem is

The best I can say is to change all your threads to different colors and get light colored material. Start with tenstion for all set to N - normal and experiment from there. Change one thread's tension at a time, sew a long strip and check out both sides and adjust as needed. Remember to start with new serger needles and a oiled machine. I'm not an expert - I just have had a serger for 15 years.
