Assembly is easy, calibrating it... not so much.
Bring it to a service center.

MO 1315 upper thread tension assembly


See if this one is similar to yours. Some do have a few more parts than others but work the same way. Even if a tension assembly looks different than yours watch the videos anyway. You will begin to understand how they work. When doing a search, search for images. They exploded views of them apart. It is a good way to see what order the parts go.

Reassembling the upper tension for a brother ls2350


Here is a picture of Pg.12 of the LS-2320 Manual. Also there is another pic of the parts list for the upper-dial of a Brother LS-2220. They should hopefully be similar enough to give you an idea of how to reassemble the machine.

How do I rebuild the upper tension mechanism for a singer sewing machine model 507?


It's far too complicated to explain on here. You need to get a service manual for your model, or find one with a similar dial. Make sure the manual covers tension dials. Getting the spring wound correctly can be a challenge. Have you checked to see the if the presser foot lever is pressing against the tension dial from the inside of the machine?

Repair tension spring


Is this the upper thread tension spring? In most instances it is replace rather than repair. A good service manual or youtube search can provide instructions on how to take apart the tension assembly and replace the spring with a new one.

Assembly instructions for Singer Merritt 4525


The service manual for that machine can probably show you, and I would make sure and get the parts list as well. I just checked Sewing Parts Online, and it was not listed, but if you send an email to them (they give the address at the top of the page), they can and will purchase it for you. Usually takes about 2 weeks. However, I just saw a used one in nice shape on eBay for $72.99 and $27 shipping in the original box, so you might consider just buying another one. I also noticed that a new tension assembly is being sold for $18.95 including shipping, and if you write to them, they may include replacement instructions. Just do a search on Singer 4525 on ebay--they have all kinds of bobbins, foot pedals, and parts for it.

How to reassemble upper tension assembly on Singer 248?


The best way is to get the replacement parts chart, which is available free from the Singer site at http://parts.singerco.com/CPpartCharts/2_2999/242_247_248.pdf. On page 9, there is a picture of the tension assembly and how it goes together. It will also tell you if any of the parts are in fact missing. It would also be helpful to download the user's manual, which also a free download at the same site.

How do i fix sewing machine tension?


#1 rule in dis-assembly of anything is to lay out the parts in the order they came off. I do this with a piece of tape turned sticky side up on my table. (for future reference)

As for your machine.. since you did not provide a model number the best I can offer is this parts page which has some diagrams under each model. Please locate model from the several pages listed... and view the diagrams.

My Memory Craft 3500 suddenly seems to have no tension in the upper thread. Stitching looks fine on the top, but there are big thread loops on the bottom. Changing the upper tension dial doesn't seem to...


Hello,

It could be a wad of lint in the upper tensioner disks keeping the disks apart. I have also seen on older machines where the thread has actually cut a groove into the disks. If you can dis-assemble the tensioner, clean and inspect. Be very careful to memorize the part order in which you remove the parts, this will help when re-assembling it.

Good Luck,

Open the left end door that accesses the light. On the edge of the casting by the tension control, you'll see a set screw tapped into the hole that the upper tension control fits into. That set screw locks the tension unit into the casing. If the upper tension unit is in peices, you'll need a diagram to re-assemble it correctly. If you don't assemble it correctly, it will NOT work right.
