Higher means tighter. Better to loosen it to 3 and do a test seam before further adjustment.

Why won't it do decorative stitches?


Have you selected the proper stitch. Look at the decorative stitch line 1,2,3,or 4, then the number above the stitch. Your screen should say 1:24 for line one, stitch 24. Make sure you are using the recommended foot. Embroidery unit is disengaged. Then makes sure you have selected the proper weave or thickness of material button. If it still won't sew, try a different type of fabric button and try that. This will change the tension. The tension could be too tight or too loose for that stitch.

Stitches are too tight on Euro-Pro Shark 60 - 384


if the top tension is on 5 put the tension on 4 and see if that helps
but bring the tension down one number at a time and then check
to see if the stitches are still tight

Top stitching is not tight enough, bobbin stitching looks good


usually setting the top tension on 4 or 5 is good enough

I am working on a small quilt. Using the walking foot. When I turned the quilt over to check the stitches on the back I noticed they are very loose. I have never had this problem before. The back stitches...


Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.

the tension depends on thikness of material but you must use heavy thread on needle and thin thread on bobin case .

I have a White Model 1717 sewing machine. I can't seem to get it to sew a straight stitch. There are two #5 stitch choices but I can't change which one I am using. How do I do that?


I looked up your manual for free at www.singerco.com under customer support. I do not see 2 #5's. I see two choices under #5, they are straight and zigzag. To get a straigth stitch, you need to put your stitch width at 0. If, you want a tight stitch make it the length longer, as in 4. Why not just download a free copy and save it to your computer so that you have it to refer to?

The stitch is to tight can't get it even


Most likely the upper tension dial is too high. Turn it to 4 and try pulling the thread through the needle and see if it moves easier than before. If not turn it to 3. This should be a good tension on your upper thread so it won't make the stitch so tight. Also, be sure that the thread spool holder isn't too tight against your spool of thread. Let me know if this works.

Bottom of stitch is bunched with alot of thread and machine jams


Try these time savers:
Test your thread quality to start, thread your machine and LIFT the presser foot (this opens the tension disks). Pull your top thread straight back. If you feel no tension no mater how much thread you pull, your thread is good. If that your machine passes that test, then let me know, we can go to step 2. If not, try different spool of thread, same test until you get a smooth pull (tip: always check your thread this way when you thread your machine)
Step 2:
Pull on your threaded bobbin thread while it’s in the machine. Does it pull smooth and even? If so, go to step 3. If not, try a new bobbin (bobbins get bent or distorted if wound too tight).
Clean thoroughly in the hook and bobbin case area and oil 1-2 drop is all.

Top thread tension tight


March 12, 2009

kenmore 385.17922
i have started using my machine again (after several years) and am doing patchwork.. all has been fine, and suddenly the bottom thread (bobbin) is looping. i've adjusted the tension nob from 4 (where i had it) to 5...back to 4.. 41/2....3 1/2....5 1/2... on and on and the bottom thread still keeps looping.
i've read and re-read the manual...and the only suggestion it gives is to adjust the tension button.
it's not working...... what else can i try??
thanks
eva
