This could be tricky, look on line for a diagram of a typical tension assembly. There aren't that many parts but they can be put on in the wrong order. There is probably a set screw somewhere that has vibrated loose, you need to tighten it after replacing the unit.

How on a portable singer sewing machine how to put the tensoin back together?

That is much too complicated to type an answer here. You really need to find a SEW&VAC store and have them repair it.

As I'm sewing I keep getting more than one thread coming up from the bobbin. I took it to a shop today and the lady thought the bobbin thread came out too easily and suggested the problem was caused from...

Turn the tension up on the bobbin case. There is a small slotted screw on the bobbin case, usually at the 6 oclock position when the case is in the machine. There should be a small screwdriver in your kit. Turn the tension screw 1/2 turn and try it. No luck, try another 1/2 turn. If its no difference then set back to the original place. Sometimes junk gets jammed behind the tension plates in the bobbin case, they will cause this. A dealer may be the only solution.

I took my machine apart to correct a problem and I'm looking for help reassembling the machine. I really just need to know where the screws go.

depending on how far apart you took it you may need to take it to a service technician. if its only the cover plates the newer machines usually only have screw holes on the back of the machine and usually under the handle.

My bobbin thread keeps getting tangled and breaking everytime I try and sew....I have tried rethreading the bobbin, taking everything apart and cleaning out the dust and debris, I have adjusted the thread...

there is a screw on the side of the bobbin case, which needs to be turned to the left or counter clockwise to loosen the tension and also change the needle because a burr on the end will cause problems with bobbin thread

Tension on my White sewing machine, Model #1418 is messed up. Lost my temper and took it apart and now I can't get it back together properly. Every combination I try does not work. Need a photo or a better explanation of how it goes back together. Tension has been a continuing problem from the day I purchased this machine. Very frustrating! Thanks

27 - Complete Tension Unit
28 - Setscrew TP 3 X 6
29 - Hexagonal socket screw 4 X 6

There is no exploded view for this component, so if you cannot confidently restore the unit, suggest seeing a technician, and the next time you take something apart, use a camera for reference, and lay components out carefully as they come apart.even write notes for yourself.

Hope this is helpful, it is the best image available in the Janome Manuals.

I have a brand new 525FA. I can try to take a pic of it tomorrow for you. I may have to call my mom to see what part you need a picture of cause I'm not familiar with sewing machine parts at all. But I'll check with her. Or maybe you can take a pick of what you need to see. Then I can look at it, and take a pic of the same thing on mine.
