Question about Sewing Machines
I have just tried to change the cotton spools from white to black. The stitching looks terrible. I don't know what settings the tension knobs should be on either. I have downloaded a manual, but unfortunately the quality of the scanned document is low and I am having difficulty reading it. Any help appreciated.

Try oiling the hook if you haven't recently.
Check you needle plate and hook for damage, they may need to be buffed or sanded smooth.
Check your upper tension discs for lint and double check your upper thread path (proper threading).
There are other things like hook timing, needle clearance or broken check spring that may be wrong but you need a technician for those things.
best of luck!

You need to put more tention into the Corners, Try puttin a tention of 10 into the Quilt. And it should work fine. 10-12 Maximum, don't go pass 12 because it will probably Rip, or Shrill up. Hope this Helped.

Lower the tension as much as you can without ending up with a knotted string. You should be able to pull the thread by hand through the needle and have just enough tension so the bobbin does not keep spinning when you give a short, sharp tug to the thread.
Hope I helped!
