SOURCE: tension problem on Brother 1500S.

Sometimes it is just a matter of totally rethreading with different thread, I was shocked when some thread that I had bought and it turned out that it was old stock (no wonder it was on sale). Another thing to try is when you rethread with the presser foot up, try this test, pull your thread, it should move smoothly, now lower the presser foot, pull the thread, it should barely move. This should seat your thread in the tension discs. Another thing to do is put in a new needle before you do your rethreading and take off your throat plate, and see it there is a burr inside the needle hole, if so take some emery cloth or light sand paper with a toothpick and go around that hole. While you have the throat plate off, take an old toothbrush and clean out all around your feed dogs. You will probably find something that looks like felt there, and it shouldn't be there. Depending on my machine (I have 5), I set my tension on 3 and some need the 4 setting, I teach disabled teens how to sew and run into alot of different easy to fix problems in my 50+ years of sewing, These are all little tricks you learn. Good luck and have a great day,

SOURCE: I have a Brothers 1500s. When I quilt with it the stiches skip every now an then leaving a large gap between stitches. Do I have the quilt to far up from the base of hte machine when I quilt? Shoul

Your top tension is based on the fabric thickness.. not just a number. Make a test sandwich of all the materials you are quilting with, cotton top, batting, lining, etc. Test your tension on that until you get it right.

The skipping is a symptom of a bad needle or the presser foot not having enough pressure on it. I'm not familiar with your machine so I don't know if it has the ability to add more pressure to the presser foot.

Try a brand new needle. If that doesn't help, then the machine has probably been knocked out of time. Search for sewing machine timing.
