The proper tension for the 537 is between 4-6. You need to make sure that your presser foot is in the up position before threading.

Firstly-check the needle is in correctly.If the needle is slightly bent it will not pick up the bottom thread. When top and bottom are threaded, pull the threads towards you. Hold the top thread between finger and thumb and hold but do not pull tight. Turn the flywheel towards you while holding the thread at a 45 degree andgle in front of you, upwards. You should feel it loop and give it a very gentle lift and pull as you feel it. There are some good videos of this on youtube Ive found which may help you-just search for "threading a sewing machine".If no manual supplied-contact either the seller or the manufacturer to get one.

SOURCE: sears Kenmore sewing machine model number 15358 tension issues

#14 needle is way big for cotton napkin scrap. a #10 is good for most lightweight fabric. #14 is for sewing denim or levis, like that.

the tension problems on almost all machines regardless of price usually fall on the upper tension. the lower bobbin tension is factory set and it's rare you should ever need to mess with it.

if you have a drop in bobbin (top loading), tighten the adjustment screw all the way and then back it off 1/4 turn. if your machine uses a shuttle bobbin, tighten the adjustment screw all the way and then back it off in 1/4-turn increments until you can hold it in the air like a yo-yo and cause to bobbin case to fall slightly dipping your hand.

A dull needle and stitch length will also mess up your stitch. The idea is to narrow the problem down to one thing and one thing only -- UPPER THREAD TENSION.

So, if you have the right size needle for the job, with the right thread, and if your stitch length selection is correct (usually between 2 and 3 or 8-to-10 stitches per inch, the problem should be with your upper thread tension.

An easy way to fix this then is to remember: Loops on top, upper tension drop. Loops below, upper tension grow. If you get loops on top of your work, lower (drop) your upper thread tension to a lower number. If you get loops on the bottom, raise the upper thread tension.

Different stitches on the same machine will require different upper thread tension settings. Don't be afraid of it. Just remember the pneumonic: loops on top, tension drop, loops below, tension grow -- referring to upper thread tension.

have fun :)

Have a Brothers pe770. Having trouble with thread contently breaking but just kept rethreading. Tonight the little long brush on take-up lever feel off. Can I still use machine? How do I fix this?


If the tread keeps breaking could be it's old thread, need new needle or needle and thread not the right combo for material. Or yiur tension is too tight.
not sure about the brush falling off. Up to you to try sewing.

The right needle tension makes the fabric pucker.


Make sure the tension is clean.
Thread with the pressure foot up and be very observant if there are any snags. Fix them!
Use samples to do final tension balance. Don't believe that 4 and 5 are the same for each tension control.
Use new needles.
Use good thread. Usually you can look into light with the thread. If there is fuzz it is time to trade in the WalMart brand and spend a dollar more.

Looking for the factory sitting for the tenisons


thread tensions are only a guide
you have to adjust the needle and bobbin tensions your self to suit the thread thickness being used.
one setting is not the same for different materials and threads.
correct tension is when the upper and lower threads are meeting in the centre of the material being sewed.

My mums lemair Helvetia, when on zigzag only, mucks up every 4th stitch. It forms a thread loop on the underside. And what needle is the correct needle for this machine?


it's possible that the gear or cam that make the zig zag stitch is
worn or broken or loose, there's no way to know for sure with out
having a sewing machine shop look at the machine.
you mentioned the needle, when sewing on cotton you need one
kind of needle and for knits you need a different needle, so
according to what kind of fabric that tell what kind of needle has to
be used for the stitches to come out right.
also check the top tenison--on a scrap fabric,,try to tighten the top
tension and see if the helps stop the thread loops on the underside.

I have an husqvarna Viking mega quilter18x8 with the imperial frame. I am having problems with the tension and the tread keeps breakingms with. The tension and the tread keeps breaking. HELP!!


If the thread breaks at the needle and is feeding smoothly from the spool, you may have the tension too high. It is impossible to say what the setting should be because the knob rotates all the way around several times. Loosen it off until you see needle thread pull to the back of the quilt, then tighten until it just balances the interlocking of the stitch in the fabric. Test with little swirls, that's most likely to pull needle thread to back.Also, check that the needle is properly installed and that the hook to needle timing and clearance are good.Nesting of thread underneath usually happens if the foot lifter is left up or the tread is not fully in the disks of the tension unit.

Im having trouble with the bobbin tread when i sow the bottom threadcomes out in big clumps and then jams the needle


Sounds like a threading mistake. Try this, thread the machine all the way to the needle but not the eye. Then lift the presser foot up and down and pull on the tread as you do that. You should have tension when the foot is down and not tension when it is up. If this is the case try sewing(should fix), if it is not the case your machine will need adjustment.
