My vintage kenmore hand wheel was frozen now it turns manually but not when I use the foot pedal, then it won't turn

Either you will replace the belt or have to adjust the motor/belt tension.
1. The motor can be loosened by a couple of bolts. This allows the motor to be moved to adjust the tension of the belt.
2. The tension can be adjusted properly by turning the motor on with the foot pedal; low speed.
3. While the motor is running move the motor in a fashion that will loosen or tighten the belt. The correct location will allow the motor to run at it's highest speed.
4. Re-tighten the bolts and retest the machine.

Why will the tension unit will not stay in

loosen the screw that holds the tension device in place and remove the whole thing. if it won't pull right out use a small screrw driver in the take up spring slot to help it out. probably whats wrong is the small screw at the rear of the tension device is loose. u need a very small screwdrive to tighten this and don't put tons of pressure on the screw only to have to drive slip off and slice your finger. don't misplace the pin that opens the thread tension disksn when presser foot is up position.

Husqvarna 1200 no top tension

The most common problem is lint or thread between the upper tension discs. It could be the stepper motor in the tension assembly is out of calibration or not working. When you restart the machine you should see and hear the stepper motors calibrate. Observe if the tension discs open and close on start up. If they do and flossing between the tension discs with a larger thread does not fix it you may need a pro.

If you have a size 80 needle in the machine and the presser foot down the needle should bend about an eighth to quarter inch when pulled to the side.

Motor makes noise and slowed down

take the belt off the motor and press the pedal see if it is still running slow, if not then there is a tightness in the machine itself.

Skipping stitches and sometime the thread breaks.

Sounds like a tension problem maybe. Too tight tension will bend, and break the needle, especially if sewing fast in free machine embroidery, in this mode, the tensions have to be looser anyway. I can't explain why the wheel flagged and stopped, but experiment with tensions first.

I have a quantrum XL-100 and i cannot adjust tension and the wheel is very hard to turn. i have tried every thing i know how to do and i still cannot adjust tension or decrease tenision on th side wheel...

The tension for the motor belt is adjusted by loosening and altering the position of the mounting bracket of the not overtighten, it needs to have some give or you will overload the motor.

Just got my used Bernina deco 650 from the shop. Tension off

The tensions are not calibrated properly. To get by, or if you do not want to take it back to the shop, just lower the upper tension a little at a time until it looks ok.

I have a singer futura ce-250/ce-350 machine.

You need to do a tension test
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Tension assembly test. To do this test. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.)
If it doesn’t work this way then you probably have a piece of thread or lint stuck inside the tension discs. To remove it, turn the tension to 0 zero and raise the presser foot.Using a small screwdriver, open the space between the discs and spray with canned or compressed air. The stuff should come out. Do the tension test again to make sure you got everything and then try sewing again.

Tention guide

It is normal for the tension to be relaxed when the presser foot is raised, so , is there any tension when the presser foot is down, even if only a little more ?

Check there is no lint built up between the tension plates as this is common, and will cause the tension to be affected as you describe.

Unusual but possible is that the lever mechanism which relaxes the tension from the presser foot to the tension dials is seized or "gummed up" with lint and old oil.........when was your last full service done ? If it was more then 2 or 3 years, just like a motor car, regular servicing will pay dividends in enhanced performance and longer life.
