Question about Sewing Machines
I changed all upper thread tensions and don't know how to get them back to the factory defaults . Don't ask what possessed me to do that but I did. Now I am having a very bad time trying to get my tension back to normal. I have tried adjusting many times and embroidered the thread tension design but cannot get it back to normal. Is there a factory default setting somewhere I can reset to and adjust where and when from there?
Try ignoring the factor default tension setting and try the simple method of pulling the thread through the tension plates
just before threading the needle, pull on the thread and there should be a resistance to pulling the thread
now adjust the tension up or down to get the two threads to meet at the center of the materials

SOURCE: Thread breaks when embroidering
Try changing threads. If you're not using embroidery thread specifically, the "treatments" they use on different threads can really cause problems.

Try making the material tighter in the hoop and check your bobbin to be sure it's a L (look at your instruction manual...it will show you which bobbin works and which does not. I say this because you have a tension problem...dont we all, Ha Ha!

If you are adjusting the upper tension on your machine and yet there is no difference to the sewing, it seems to me that maybe your upper thread is not in the tension disks correctly. Re-thread taking care to make sure the threads bed down into the tension disks. I pull off about 2 foot of thread from the spool and put my right-hand finger on the thread very close to the spool (the idea is to hold it down so it doesn't move) then use my left hand to take the thread through the thread run. Once I get close to the needle, I tug the thread a little and you can hear/feel it go into the tension disk.
Sometimes it looks like the top thread is the problem, but in fact it is the bobbin which is at fault. Re-insert your bobbin again taking care to click it into its tension slot. If you are still getting bad results, try loosening off the bobbin tension. Use a tiny screwdriver to turn the tension screw (the one just on the outside of the tension slot). Turn it no more than 1/5th of a circle at a time (to the right to tighten, to the left to loosen) then put bobbin back in and test. You should not need to adjust it more than two or at most three times. If you do, something is seriously wrong with your machine's tensions and it needs to see the Sewing Machine Doctor.
