Where do I tighten bobbin thread


on the outside of the bobbin case where you pull the bobbin thread around and down a small; slot to under a small flat spring
that flat spring is the bobbin thread tension and is adjusted by the screw that holds that plate on
a very small amount of turn of that screw make a large difference to the tension
However if your problem is birdnesting under the material ( total mess) then the problem is not bobbin tension but the needle tension is too loose and not pulling up the bobbin thread properly

XL2100R MOTOR FAN REMOVAL


The nut is reverse threaded from what normal nuts and bolts are threaded. To loosen it, you need to act like you are going to tighten it instead.

I have an expression 2038 and the stitching has suddenly changed so that the top stitching is quite good but the underneath is loose. I have the tension on 4 and have a new straight needle and good quality...


If the bobbin thread is too loose, remove the bobbin spool AND carrier.Thread the thread through the tension clip on the holder in the normal way. Hold the thread and lift it. If the bobbin slides down, tighten the small screw 1/8 turn clockwise, until you can lift it with little or no sliding.

The bobbin thread bunches up underneath the garment on Elna 2004 sp


Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.

My sewing machine is otherwise perfect..but the stitches hv a tiny dot from the thread in the bobbin case...wat to do??


Tighten the bottom thread or loosen the top thread a little. There should be a little screw on the bobbin holder where you can adjust bottom thread tension.

Janome dc4100 loopy untidy stitching on reverse sewing machine


Totally rethread your machine, if the underneath threads are looping it is your threading on top that is causing the problem. Make sure that you thread is not tangled.

Stiches are loose in the bottom side of the cloth,if i change the bobbin case....will it help? I can understand that tension of thread is the problem.....but don't know what to do


the case the bobbin goes into has a little spring on its side .. the spring has one or two screws. one screw adjusts tension on the spring .. the bobbin thread goes under that spring when it is properly threaded .. if the screw is loose or missing then replace the screw or tighten it a little so that thread pulled thru the bobbin case spring has a bit of drag .. if its too loose then you can tighten the screw a bit more ... if you tighten it too much then it will pull the top thread thru to the bottom .. if your adjustment screw or spring is missing then you can replace the bobbin holder .. the new one should have the spring in place and be properly tightened .. . often the adjustment screw is just loose or the thread is not positioned correctly in the bobbin case slot. .

How do I properly remove the fan from an Oreck XL9200s upright vacuum? It looks all chewed and beat up.


You will need to grip the motor shaft with a vise grip or similar with a pad underneath so as not to score the shaft , which in tun would damage the belt.
A piece of tire tube or leather will help. The fan is threaded and will rotate off opposite its normal rotation. A damaged or chewed fan will throw the vac out of balance. In a tight spot you could carefully file any frayed leading edges as if to true the fan, but a worn fan will reduce suction as well. good work spotting this . Tighten the new fan hand tight, snug
