Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines
Even though I've set it at 0 it's still too tight, apparently and straight stitches don't look right, just a line on top of the seam. Zig-zags don't zig correctly, look more like a sick feather stitch.
I have a 1980's era model 1690 Sears Kenmore

i have started using my machine again (after several years) and am doing patchwork.. all has been fine, and suddenly the bottom thread (bobbin) is looping. i've adjusted the tension nob from 4 (where i had it) to 5...back to 4.. 41/2....3 1/2....5 1/2... on and on and the bottom thread still keeps looping.
i've read and re-read the manual...and the only suggestion it gives is to adjust the tension button.
it's not working...... what else can i try??
