Usually they come from the factory at mid-way. But that isn't a "supposed to be" situation. Each fabric will have it's own settings. What are you trying to do "get it back to normal?"

This happened to me too! Make sure your buttonholer isn't pulled down and locked in to where it's making the machine sew backward. That's what happened to me.

SOURCE: Bobbin tangles on Brother xr 65

This was happening to me too, I reversed the bobbin feeds and it has not tangled since then. I was orignally feeding the bobbin from the left side and now i feed the thread from the right. It works great this way.

I am a begginer on sewing and would like to know a book that can tell me how to set my tension for certian materials? where can I get this type information? I think I can figure out how to put things together but the tension is another matter :)

SOURCE: I can not thread a bobbin to save my life. Help.

first, google your sewing machines name and model number and "manual" or "users guide" and you can find the link to the PDF download. Here is what I found:

1 Raise the needle to its highest position by turning the balance whell toward you (counterclockwise) and raise the presserfoot lever. Slide the button and open cover.
2 insert the bobbin so the thread comes out in a clockwise direction. Use bobbins intended for this machine. !CAUTION! Be sure the bobbin is set so the thread unrols in the correct direction. If the thread unrolls in the wrong direction, it may cause the thread tension to be incorrect or the needle to break.
3 Hold the thread end, push the bobbin down with your finger, and pass the thread securely through the thread cutting groove.
4 Replce the bobbin cover. Place the left tab in place then press lightly on the right side until the cover clicks into place. *insert the cover so that the end of the thread comes out from the back of the cover.

good luck and G.Bless!

I have a brother LS-1717 sewing machine and i do not know what all the dials are suppose to be set on, for basic sewing


Try setting all your dials on the middle numbers, ex:# 5 if it goes 1-9.Check your manual if you have one. Check on scrap material with every project and adjust tension accordingly.
