How do I change tension when I'm sewing a thro for a bed and the material is thick?

You probably need to change the "presser foot pressure" if your machine has the function. It increases or decreases the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric. You can also try using a walking foot, teflon foot, or roller foot to see if it helps feed the fabric and make a more even stitch.

The walking foot is too aggressive on material, causing it to claw rather than pull through nicely.

Walking foot may not work well on thin material or normal sewing, it is meant for quilting and is applied on several layers of material.

Foot pedal doesn't work

well if the foot pedal isn't working, you can either replace it with a new one or take the machine to a sewing machine repair shop & let them check the foot pedal & see if it's fixable

There are different kinds of single needle foot, What are these?

If you take a look at this website you'll see the different feet for some makes

I assume you mean what are the different feet used for?
General purpose foot will have room for the needle to swing through wide stitches, but enough foot to hold the fabric and move it through against the feed dogs. This is the one you use most.
A straight stitch foot will have a little hole so that the needle only goes through a small area and the fabric can't move to give a neat plain straight stitch.
Plastic wide toe foot is good when you need to see what you are sewing onto such as applique (sewing a piece of fabric onto another with a wide satin stitch).
Teflon coated foot is good for slippery fabrics, it grips well.
A roller foot is great for textiles like leather and vinyl which don't feed nicely.
Then there are lots of feet for turning the fabric to sew it such as a rolled hem (these come in different widths so you can turn 2mm, 4mm or 6mm for example).
Felled foot (like the side seam on your jeans) joining two fabrics in a felled seam
Then there are feet for quilting and darning where you need to move the fabric smoothly in different directions, these will be small foot area and open stitching space usually.
Walking foot is a special one, part of the foot moves because a part of it clips around the needle bar and the up and down movement then activates the foot so its little teeth help to move the fabric from the top to supplement the normal feed dogs below. Pfaff machines actually built this function into their machines some years ago to give even feed from top and bottom. Great for quilting thick fabric sandwich or sewing together fabrics that want to slip or not feed smoothly.

There is also similar info here which may help you to see the different uses and feet available.
Most manufacturers will sell their machine with 4 or 5 of the most used feet but often have more to buy aftermarket. And many feet between companies look very alike so if you have a clip on foot from one brand it may work on another machine with a clip on foot.

I hope that this is what you were asking.

I have recently been given a HP K8600 which I am told works perfectly except for the front paper feed. It is fine using the rear feed. is it aproblem that can be repaired or do I just use the rear feed?

Well, my guess is, it could be the roller foot or a belt. If you are comfortable taking things apart and putting them back together, it may not be tough to fix, but finding replacement parts may be tougher than actually installing them.

Typically, the paper feeders work by a belt that turns a roller, the roller has a rubber foot on it, this rubber foot grips the sheet of paper when the paper is pressed to it (in many models there is a "lifter" that does this.

You can try with the front feeder and see what it does. In most cases if you look closely you can see the printer working in action. When you try to print something, does the rubber foot spin? does the paper get lifted? (or the foot lowered to the paper) If the paper is applied to the "foot" and the foot spins, and the foot can't grab the paper, it could just be a worn out rubber foot. If you can find a replacement, that may be the simplest thing. But really overall, if you are fine using the rear feeder, it may not be worth playing with unless you want a project.
