Question about Sewing Machines
Despite having the upper tension set as high as it goes, I still get looping underneath. How do I loosen the bobbin tension? There is nothing in the owner's manual. I'm assuming Singer doesn't want end users fiddling with it, but something has to be done. This machine has had 3 upper tension assemblies which work for a little while and then the problem re-occurs. I got so frustrated, I bought another brand and use this machine as backup when my ''good'' machine in unavailable. It's a shame because the 2005 makes excellent buttonholes when it is working right.
So you have adjusted the bobbin case screw tight?
(the shuttle that holds the actual bobbin)
It sounds like your needle is to fine or heavy for the material or thread you are using. I have been finding lately all threads are NOT created equally. Some are down right garbage (the cheap ones especially)
You may also want to check your bobbin case, it may be damaged in some way and causing this issue.
