Question about Sewing Machines
The thread is pulling apart at the seam where the hot tub cover folds when you open it
As long as the cover fabric is not damaged or torn then the seam
should be able to be resewn

SOURCE: My seams pull apart
Sounds like a tension issue.
Check your tension units and thread guides are clean and free of lint....a rag moistened with methylated spirit (denatured, surgical etc) run between the disks will help.
Normal factory tension setting = 3 for all dials although resetting this style of tension unit is, frankly, awkward, so if it ends up being other than 3, don't worry too much, just write it down somewhere handy.
Start with all at tension 3 and try using 4 different colours of thread and sew a scrap to see the balance of the tensions to more easily locate any that are loose.
Ideally, the 2 needle threads should appear as secure dots not at all "loopy", while the looper threads should meet neatly at the edge and be a firm join without pulling at the edge on one side or the other.
Get the needle threads right first, then small adjustments to balance the looper threads....after a few adjustments you will probably have it back to normal.

Take the bobbin out and unthread the machine.
Install a new needle.
Place the needle bar in its highest position and place the presser bar up.
Make sure that the upper tension dial is in the normal range (5 or mark on dial).
Rethread the bobbin ensuring that the thread is in the tension.
Rethread the machine.
If this doesn't help, please indicate your brand and model for specific advice.
