The proper tension for the 537 is between 4-6. You need to make sure that your presser foot is in the up position before threading.

I have a Necchi Omega 6147. How can I adjust the drop-in bobbin to use upholstery thread to sew heavy fabrics or leather?


You would need to adjust the tension screw so the tension is looser than usual. However, remember to mark the setting BEFORE making any adjustments so you will know where to return the original setting.

I have a Necchi sewing machine The bobbin thread is way loose. What should I do


Start out with a brand new needle.

Be sure the machine is threaded properly. Also, the presser foot MUST be raised before threading so the thread will seat properly in the tension disk.

The standard setting for the upper tension is the midway point between the high and low number.

If the bobbin thread is still way too loose, you can try adjusting (tightening) the bobbin case tension. If that does not fix the problem, you can probably try purchasing a new bobbin case for your machine as the old one may be broken or worn.

How to free motion sew on Necchi 3537


Use the darning foot or the free motion foot, drop or cover your feed dogs and set your width and length to zero. Then test the tension. With these changes, sometimes the tension is off.

Missing front main tension cover on Necchi 535 F A 180994


Do you mean the Tension adjustment knob? If that is the part you need then try this site: http://vintagesewingmachineparts.com/necchi-535-fa-tension-adjustment-sewing-machine-part-3/ .

There are also several sites that have parts for sewing machines but do not list their complete inventory online. To check if they have your part, e-mail them with a complete description of the part and the model. For example, try http://www.a1sewingmachine.com/parts.html .

I hope this helps.

Necchi 511..how do you adjust thread tension on top thread


Before the thread goes though the uptake lever, it goes though the tension (a round "knob" with numbers).

When threading the machine, lift the presser foot. This opens the tension control so the thread can enter and then when the foot is down and you begin to sew, the tension setting will determine how much thread should feed to the needle.

The setting is usually around 4. However, if this is an older machine that has been used a lot and serviced a little, the tension may not work as it should.

Try different settings and if you cannot get a proper stitch, you will need to determine if the machine should be serviced or if you should purchase a new one - service and parts can be 1/2 the price of a decent, new machine.

No instructions how do you tread the machine?


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} all machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.FLAT to the BACK.

Bobbin jamming


Sounds like it is the bobbin tension that is causing the problem not the top tension. Have a look in your manual it should explain how to adjust the tension. If you do not have a manual have look at this website if they do not list one for your model email them and they will help. Check out the threading page as well.
