Question about Sewing Machines
Can't balance the tension of the three thread spools----help!
Got a serger huh? First put 3 different colors on the spool holders. Then play with tensions so you understand which thread does what.
It's trial and error. Good luck.

Try this. reomove thread and bobbin from machine.. Set thread tension to the middle number. Rethread machine carefully making sure the thread is thru the tension wheel. Replace bobbin making sure that thread is thru it's tensioner.
Rule of thumb. Loops on the bottom, problem is on the top. Loops on the top, problem is with the bobbin.

I disassembled the top thread tension controller consisting of 12-13 pieces, including 2 springs. Since they all fell out on the table I spent about 2 hours learning the proper stacking order on the central shaft.
With a combination of reasoning based on each unique piece shape and trial and error I put it back together, adjusted top and bottom tensions according to the instruction booklet for the machine, tested some stitching, made final adjustments and all worked well.
I don't know what was changed in the process but it worked.
