Question about Brother LS-2125 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have used all the suggentions in the manual. I have used all tensions ... up AND down the scale and still have looping at the back of the fabric. The fabric is of normal thickness and the thread is regular thread.
From your description it appears that you have tried tension settings on the upper tension control adjustment knob without success.
Check that the bobin tension is adjusted correctly by taking out the bobin complete with the spool.
Pull the cotton thread and it should be a smooth light pressure if the tension is correct. If it is tight to pull or pulls freely then adjust the tension screw which is found on the outside of the bobbin. The screw is very small and requires a minature size screwdriver. The adjustment will only be a slight turn of the screw one way or the other to obtain the correct tension(depending if it was loose or tight).
Once this is set reinstall the bobin and tread up the machine, hopefully with the upper tension set at approx."2" the machine will sew correctly.

The bobbin thread tension
has already been adjusted at the factory for general use. For most
applications, no adjustment is needed.
When sewing with then
thread on thin fabrics, the thread tension may not be adjusted adequately with
the upper tension control dial. Therefore, the thread tension must be
adjusted according to the procedure described below.
If bobbin tension is too
loose and locks appear on the surface of the fabric, decrease the thread tension
by turning the dial to a lower number.
If the result is still
not satisfactory, then adjust the bobbin thread tension.
Increase the tension in the bobbin by turning the screw with a small screwdriver in a clockwise direction. However, do not turn the screw more than one full turn.
