Question about Brother CS-100-T Computerized Sewing Machine
The stitiching looks like it is too loose with the bobbin thread and too tight for the top thread. I have moved the tension control from #3 to #4 to #5 to #2 - no changes - HELP.
The top tension pulls the upper thread up to the top of the fabric. The bobbin tension pulls the lower thread to the bottom of the fabric.
An even stitch is a tug of war between the two.
If it looks good on the to and the bottom looks loopy, the bottom is dominating and the upper tension needs to be increased to pull the knots up.
If the thread on the top looks like a straight line, it is too tight on the top or too loose on the bottom.
Unless the bobbin case tension has been adjusted, the problem is usually on the top.

Make sure your thread goes under the plate of the carrusel. If not the
machine think is not threaded and it beeps. Thread the machine with
your left hand and 1.Pull the thread with your other hand to make sure it
"clicks" to every part of the machine.
2.Make sure you are using good quality bobbin thread. There are some kinds that the Futura doesn't like.
3.There is a little screw attached to the bobbin carrusel. You can try to turn it just a little bit. The reason is that this carrusel gets loose after a while.
4. Clean and oil your machine at least monthly.
Hope something helps!
