    Adjust stitch length by holding down the small button on the bed of the machine and turning the wheel.Stitch length numbers are marked on the wheel, next to the belt on some machines. On others they're marked on the wheel under a cover on top of the machine. Open the small cover on top of the machine. Hold the button down and turn the wheel until it clicks. Then while still holding the button down, continue to turn the wheel either toward or away from you to get to the number of stitches you want. The run a few stitches and repeat as necessary.

    If the bobbin is jamming you probably have threaded it wrong. Thread comes off the top of the bobbin, down and through the slot in the bobbin case, under the tension spring and pulled toward the back of the machine. Adjust bobbin tension and top tension so that the top and bottom threads are connected in the center of the two layers of fabric.

Stitch length is adjusted by holding down the small button in the bed and turning the wheel to the desired number of stitches. The numbers are either on the wheel, next to the belt pulley, or under a small cover on top of the machine. Hold the button and turn the wheel either toward or away from you to get the stitches you want.
Bobbin jamming is either because of incorrect top tension or incorrect threading. Go to and get a parts and operation manual for free for a 224. It 's the same as the 226.

Do I need to adjust bobbin tension when changing stiches

Usually one does not change bobbin tension. Adjusting the tension on the needle thread is all that is required.

It is sometimes necessary to change the bobbin tension but only when changing to an extremely fine, slick thread or to a very heavy, rough thread.

Machine and Bobbin threaded correctly. When trying to sew will not pick up thread from bobbin to make a stich.

That sounds like the timing is off and unless you know how to adjust that you will need to bring your machine to someone to have them adjust the timing relationship between your needle and your bobbin. Good luck

Bobbin won't pick up stitch(thread)

Try a new needle, confirm needle is inserted correctly, needle flat side to back of machine. If still not needs timing, take to sewing machine tech.

Good Morning: My wife has a Husquvarna Viking 320 Electronic Sew Easy. I have tried to re-work the bobin and the thread through the needle. When she stiches the hem on a pair of blue jeans it stiches...

since you are doing jeans it can be on either side so lets start for the beginning, rethread the top thread making sure that the thread went through the upper tension, second remove the bobbin and make sure to thread it through the lower tension(there is a spot on the bobbin case for the thread to go through for there to be tension on the bottom) if the thread on the bottom pulls really easy by hand like there is no resistance then take it to a local dealer and have him adjust it if it feels like there is a pull do the same with the upper thread put the foot down and try to pull the upper thread(don't break a needle) if it has tension adjust the upper thread tension tighter
