Question about Singer Sewing Machines
The left and right looper threads are too loose: the nob tention all the way to 8-9, the thread pulled between the disks, machine is threaded correctly, but the edge of the overlocking stiches extend about 2mm beyong the cut edge of fabric: sloppy mess!!! Cleaned the machine, checked stationary knife adjustment, tryed every possible tention combination. What could I do? Could not obtain 3mm width with the right needle only. Was doing OK few month ago, but I noticed that I had to increase the tension slightly overtime. Does the springs go bad in the tension disks?

When servicing these machines I have found that the cover over the tensioners needs to be removed so you can see if there is more adjusting possible. If its a newer serger you would hold the knob somewhere in the middle (4-5) and adjust the knurled part that goes through it. Many times I have had to rebuild these tensioners as they get dirty and need cleaning and adjusting. It may take many tries until you have it adjusting correctly. But it needs to be done.
