SOURCE: Tension problems

It sounds like your bobbin tension is too loose. If your needle went into the spare between the looper and the flat tensioner, the plate might need replaced, or removed and unbent.

Brother cs-80 tension issue


Remove the thread from the machine. Install a brand new needle.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread. Set the upper tension to the midway point.

Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case (make sure it is turning the correct direction) and thread the bobbin tensioner. Install the bobbin case in the machine.

Insert the fabric under the presser foot. Lower the presser foot. While holding the top thread tail with your left hand, manually turn the handwheel (always toward you, never away!) one revolution until the top thread has pulled the bobbin thread up. Raise the presser foot and sweep both threads under the presser foot toward the back (you can use a stiletto, a pencil, or some other tool to sweep the threads). Lower the presser foot, gently hold both thread tails with your left hand and slowly turn the handwheel (either manually or by motor) to form a couple of stitches. Then let go of the thread tails and continue sewing.

If it continues to cause thread nests or you have other issues, then your machine may need service.

Tension on reverse side of fabric is too loose-


Set the tension back to the recommended setting (in manual). This is usually around 4.

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up as this allows the thread to properly "seat" into the tension control.

Cant get my tension right on my brother sewing machine vx 877 can you help me


Thread the machine with the presser foot up and then adjust the tension to the setting you need - general purpose sewing thread is around 4.

Threading with the foot raised is important as this opens the tension control and allows the thread to properly seat into the mechanism.

When a sewing machine is threaded with the foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter as intended and the tension control has nothing to control.

If this does not help, the machine may need the the spring in the tension control replaced. You will have to search for parts on the Internet or check with a Brother dealer.

I'm getting loops on the surface of my fabric. I have rethreaded both upper and bobbin and played with the tension.


Set the tension according to the manual for your machine.

Raise the presser foot and re-thread the machine. It is important that the presser foot be up when threading as this opens the tension control and allows the thread to properly enter.

When you thread with the foot down, the tension is closed to the selected setting and the thread cannot enter.

Check the manual to be sure the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

Keep the machine maintained according to the manual.

If you do not have a manual, check the Brother website for a free download.

How to adjust the thread


Here is the user manual from which I will quote
ftp://ftp.brother.ca/ENGLISH/SEWINGMACHINE/XR31-UG.pdf
Page 19 has how to adjust the tension of the thread
There should be dial to which you can turn to adjust up or down your tension , use a piece of scrap fabric to ensure it is set at the right tension that you need ..
The upper thread tenison wheel is located on the left side of the machine above the needle ( top/front of machine shown on their diagram of the machine as #5 )
