It sounds like when you are hitting a jump, and carvin into the turn you are leaning way forward, causing the tension on your cables to release and allow it to "pop" open. I'd say try to adjust you forward lean.

Upper tension won't adjust


You can try "flossing" the tension with a piece of unwaxed dental floss, a dollar bill, or a piece of fabric to try to clean anything that is trapped between the tension discs loose. Be sure the pressure foot it up and the tension knob turned to "0" before trying this. Then dial back the tension to your normal setting and try re-threading your machine. If this doesn't work and you know how to remove and reinstall your tension assembly, that could be the next step. The tension discs do wear out over time, but sometimes it is just some lint that needs to be cleaned out.

Probably not. try turning the tension adjusted up little more. its most likely a bind in the mechanical part of the system. if the arm coming from the chain guide is bent that could also trigger the tension limiter.

I have a singer 288. I think this may be a tension adjustment problem. The top or visible stitch is fine, however the bottom, when I flip the single piece of fabric over, is large loops. No matter how I...


no tension on the top thread causes this. either thread is not into top tension discs or tension device is broken, dirty or faulty. always thread with pressure foot up as when lowered it engages the tension and closes up the discs. you could try cleaning the tension by flossing between open discs using selvage edge of clean piece of cotton waste fabric scrap. turn tension to zero first and raise pressure foot. then rethread up and set tension back to 5 and test sew again. if still no joy then I would suggest a service by tech as tension may be broken.

Recovered in with tentioner failure fitted new tentioner and chain but when started the runs ok for a minute then starts to missfire check the timing and it has jumped reset and it does it again


It sounds like the tensioner is either too weak to hold the tension, not adjusted properly, or something is in a bind causing the tensioner to not do it's job and jump timing. If you have overhead Cams, they may have overheated and warped, which would create a bind while running, causing it to jump timing. I have a feeling it is just the tensioner though. You may have gotten a bad tensioner, or it is not tight enough(if it is a manually adjusted tensioner)

Can i raise height of presser foot as material is too thick to fit underneath


Not unless the model you are using has more than one height adjustment. This would be addressed in the instruction manual for the machine.

If you raise the heigth of the presser foot too much, the tension control will open and the thread will not form a proper stitch - you will get a loopy stitch that will not hold.

Intersecting seams where you may have 8 layers of fabric can be flatten somewhat with a nylon hammer, or lay a cloth over the seam and use a regular hammer.

I use this when hemming jeans - the flat-feld seams are super thick when turned under for hemming.

Use a longer stitch length when sewing thick fabrics.

Make a sample, replicating what you will be sewing to test techniques and adjustments to the machine before sewing your project.

Pony wont stay in drive


I would check and see if your cable is binding. If it is binding you may not be getting it engaged all the way. Also you have to rock the tiller back and forth a little while you are trying to engage it or sometimes it will not engage all the way and then will pop out. Also check that the arm the cable connects to at the transmission is free to move in and out of gear. Sometimes those get coroded up. Just spray some penetrating oil on it,the cable and lthe lever. As far as I know there is not a tension adjustment on the cable.

Good Luck!

Adjusting Padking Brake with 4 wheel disc brakes.


Hope this helps. This is out of the factory manual. Let me know if this works for you.
PARKING BRAKE NOTE: Tensioner adjustment is only necessary when the tensioner, or a cable has been replaced or disconnected for service. When adjustment is necessary, perform adjustment only as described in the following procedure. This is necessary to avoid faulty park brake operation.
  1. Raise vehicle.
  2. Fully back off cable tensioner adjusting nut at equalizer to create slack in cables.
  3. Remove rear wheel/tire assemblies. Remove brake calipers and rotors.
  4. Verify park brakes are in good condition and operating properly.
  5. Verify park brake cables operate freely and are not binding, or seized.
  6. Check park brake shoe adjustment.
  7. Reinstall rotors and make sure rotors turn freely.
  8. Reinstall brake calipers. Tighten guide pin bolts to 41 n·m (30 ft.lbs.)
  9. Reinstall wheel/tire assemblies after brake shoe adjustment is complete.
  10. Lower vehicle enough for access to park brake foot pedal. Fully apply park brakes
NOTE: Leave park brakes applied until adjustment is complete.
  1. Raise vehicle again.
  2. Mark tensioner rod 6.35 mm (1/4 in.) from edge of tensioner bracket Adjustment Mark On Cable Tensioner Rod
  3. Tighten adjusting nut at equalizer until mark on tensioner rod moves into alignment with tensioner bracket
CAUTION: Do not loosen, or tighten the tensioner adjusting nut for any reason after completing adjustment.
  1. Lower vehicle until rear wheels are 15-20 cm (6-8 in.) off shop floor.
  2. Release park brake foot pedal and verify that rear wheels rotate freely without drag. Verify pedal returns to fully released position.
  3. Lower the vehicle

The door reverses back to open position instead of closing


SOUNDS LIKE A SENSITIVITY ISSUE UNHOOK THE DOOR AND TRY IT MANUALLY TO BE SURE IT DOESN'T BIND OR IS TOO HARD TO OPEN OR CLOSE.

IF ALL IS WELL CHECK THE SENSITIVITY SETTINGS ON THE BACK OR SIDE OF THE OPENER.

YOU WANT THIS SET AS LOW AS POSSIBLE AND STILL OPERATE THE DOOR WITHOUT REVERSING.

NOTE: THE FULL RANGE OF ADJUSTMENT IS ONLY ABOUT 3/4 TURN SO MAKE A VERY SLIGHT ADJUSTMENT AND THEN TRY IT AGAIN.

HOPE THIS HELPS

Rear leg high back comes undone/releases when i pop


It sounds like either one of two things, with the high back. Take the adjuster off and check the teeth to see if it is stripped. If it is, Go to your local hardware store and pick up some locktite epoxy. It will be a permanent bond, but that will make them usable. The other chance is maybe it needs to be torqued down. With the possibility of your foot popping out that sounds like you bindings are not set up correctly. I had a pair hit a rock off a bc kicker, ripped the adj, off. and still was securely held down. If you are not sure how to set it up, hit up your local board shop
