Question about Consew 226R-1
Stiched seam is not balanced the bottom tension is to tight. How to adjust...If I tighten the top tension, it puckers the vinyl.
I found that sewing this type of fabric you should not have any pressure on the presser foot. and the top tension should be looser but note the tension before you adjust. and remember to make sure the needle is the right size for the fabric. and since wer are not to change the bottom tension because it always right?? then you may have to make the seam stitch longer good luck

There's hardly any way to significantly adjust the bottom, or bobbin tension. There's just a small, flat spring attached to the side of the bobbin case, under which the thread runs. There's adjustment there. You need to adjust the top thread tension via the small thumbscrew that's against the plates on the top thread tension discs. Increase or decrease tension there until top and bottom threads are equally centered between layers of material.
You can adjust presser foot tension with the knurled nut at the top of the machine. I never had the kind of problem you mention though. I set my machine at about 6 stitches per inch or a little more (max is 5, recommended), and presser foot tension is only heavy enough to pull a single layer of material through.
Hope this helps.
