Question about Sewing Machines
My machine was JUST serviced last week--timing was fixed. This morning I put it back on the table and started working. Stitches were great. I went to cut pieces for welt and when I went back to use the machine the stitch was not right. The bottom thread is coming up through the fabric making little loops while top thread seems to lie flat and straight instead of making stitches. My thought is the tension, but bobbin case has not been touched since it worked this morning and is already as tight as it will go. Top tension dial had not been adjusted since working this morning either. I've re-threaded the machine twice. I've changed the needle. Groove of the needle is facing to the right. (just as the technician had done) I counted the exposed threads of the tension screw so I could put the dial back in the same place the technician had it then I've attempted to adjust the tension dial but it doesn't seem to fix the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
Check your upper thread at the spool. I've had industrial machines randomly throw a loop around the spool holder spindle which is hidden under the spool itself.
Also check your threading guide to be absolutely certain you are threading it correctly. Also make sure needle/thread diameter are suitable for each other.
