Question about White Sewing 1418 Mechanical Sewing Machine
When you raise the presser bar it should lift a small U-shaped piece of metal inside the head of the machine directly pushing a release pin located in the center of the tension post. You have to determine whether this operation is happening before you go any further. Sometimes the screw on the lifter bar loosens and loses contact with that U-shaped piece of metal. If that is working properly, then on your tension unit itself, starting with the parts going from front to back, you have a thumb screw, a number wheel, a lock, a beehive-shaped spring, and the next piece is the tension release cup. This cup slides on the tension bar with the piece of metal sliding into the bar which is split. That slight peice of metal that slides inside could be deformed. If that is the case, tap it gently to bend it towards the machine. This is the best that I can tell you right now.
