What is the tension settings on the empisal model S4D


Tension on sergers will vary based on the type of stitch you want to create. For basic overlocking, the tensions are usually set at the midway point. However, every machine is different, so some tweaking will most likely be required to get the stitch where you want it.

The stitch looks tight andi have it just pass 4 should i go hihger


Higher means tighter. Better to loosen it to 3 and do a test seam before further adjustment.

Thread riding on the top


Not sure what you mean by riding on top.
I would guess you mean the upper thread is in a straight visible line with the lower thread just looped around it but very slack.
If this is the case the lower tension(bobbin) needs to be tighter.

My machine


Hi there,

Step 1. Set the upper tension tighter by turning the dial slightly to the right, or looser by turning the dial slightly to the left. (Or by using the electronic control if the sewing machine has one.) This adjusts the tightness of the main thread.
Step 2. Set the lower tension slightly tighter or looser using the dial or electronic control. This adjusts the tightness of the bobbin thread.
Step 3. Cut a small scrap of fabric, preferably the same type you want to sew with.
Step 4. Sew a few test stitches on the scrap. Examine the stitches to see if they’re too tight or too loose. The stitches should lie flat against the fabric, without pulling the fabric or making loops that stick out.
Step 5. Repeat Step 1 to Step 4 again as needed.

Good Luck!!
Thanks

Singer 221-1 stitching is good on bottom but not on top


pucker is caused by too loose or, to tight adjustment of: the thread tensioners both the bobbin tensioner and, the needle tensioner need to be adjusted: to adjust the needle tensioner turn the side knob clockwise is tighter counterclockwise loosens; the bobbin tensioner is a tiny screw on the bobbin holder adjust both tensioners until your stich loops' both top and, bottom are tight but, the machine does not break the thread
