Rust inside of tension dial


If your tension knob is on top of the machine, it should be possible to unscrew the knob anti clock wise. Make sure the spring and other washers are not jumping out. Also check the position of the parts to know how to place it back into position once you finished cleaning.

How do i fix the tension? i've been playing with the knobs for hours, but the threads are still too loose on the fabric.


Try decreasing your stitch width and this should help. Put your tension dials on 4. Also make sure when you thread your machine your presser foot lever is up to allow you to get your threads through your tension discs properly. To test the tension (usually set at 4 on all 4 knobs) when you thread around the knobs pull the thread on both ends like you're using dental floss around the discs under the knobs so you can feel the pull (tension) on the thread. Let me know if this works for you.

Bottom tension too loose.


Is it looping on the bottom of the fabric? If so this is a top tension issue, you need to check some things,

-make sure you thread the machine with the pressure foot up ( this allows the tension discs to open up so you can pull the fabric away from the machine with the foot up and allows the thread to get to bottom of the tension discs)

-make sure your tension settings are set to the medium setting. (Usually 4 or 5)

If this still does not help, then turn the top tension knob up (from 5 to 6,7,8,9....)

-If that still doesn't do it, your probably need the tensions reset. Let me know if you need more help.

Husqvarna Viking Sewing Machine 6020 sews in reverse


It doesn't need a part for this repair. The reverse mechanism inside the machine is seized from old grease which has hardened. It should be seen by a technician so the part can be cleaned out. Don't be surprised if he finds a broken take up slide or a cracked pattern mechanism.
Get an estimate before you have any work done and ask about a warranty for the work they plan to do.It may be less expensive to buy a newer machine.

Took apart tension button on sewing machine


This could be tricky, look on line for a diagram of a typical tension assembly. There aren't that many parts but they can be put on in the wrong order. There is probably a set screw somewhere that has vibrated loose, you need to tighten it after replacing the unit.

I took the tension apart for a kenmore 148.15600 model


Hi - unfortunately, putting the tension back together takes alot of training - not only do you have to re-install the parts correctly so the hook is in the correct position and the bobbin is in the correct position when the needle moves down thru the needle plate and into the bobbin case to pull up the bobbin thread. Further, you need to set what called the timing - your needle needs to enter the bobbin dead on center and to a very precise depth. Technicians often use a special tool to set the timing, because each machine has a different a different hook and bobbin case.

I know this won't win me any points, but you will probably need to take the machine to a repair shop to have the hook replaced or reinstalled. If you mechanically inclined, you can search the web for a service manual for your machine - the service manual will illustrate how to replace the hook and specify the timing and needle depth settings.

Good luck,
Ginny

There is probably a thread broken off inside the tension discs.To remove it ,adjust the tension knob to 0 tension, and raise the presser foot. Spread the tension discs a part with a small screwdriver and blow some canned or compressed air through the discs.You should see some thread or lint come out of it.

Rethread the machine,adjust the tension back to 5 and test the tension by pulling on the thread near the take up lever. When the foot is up there should be almost no tension. When the foot is down you should have tension.
