SOURCE: Janome Memor Craft 10001 bobbin tension

Hi,

There is an adjustment on the side of the black bobbin case.

Remove the needle plate, to gain access to the case. Lift it out, noting how it is positioned! On the side of it , there are two screws, one is the adjustment screw - its the one that sits out more. To increase tension, turn it clockwise 1/8th of a turn, reassemble and test sew. (make sure the top thread tension is back to where it should be). Repeat if required. DO NOT adjust too much at a time!

Good luck

SOURCE: L-344 loose stiching

You need to do a tension assembly 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.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread tension issues

I cleaned out the lint and now my top thread isn't coming back up to finish the stitch. The thread goes down and catches the bobbin string, but then doesn't come back up. Can anyone help with this?

Hi!
I was having the same problem(s) and I loosened the tension on the bobbin case and switched to prewound paper bobbins and everything sews beautifully.
Hope that helps!

I have a brother PR1000 and on the test stitch there is too much bobbin thread showing underneath. do I adjust the tension in the top thread or the bobbin tension?


Yes Adjust to more tight see what it'll do.
Bottom bobby is too tight or upper thread control is too lose.

Good luck

I do a lot of hemming on my machine, the underneath stitch is real real loose, I tried adjusting stuff, still is so loose I have to cut it and begin again, thanks


Is your top thread not pulling the bobbin thread up? This would be top tension too loose. FYI--be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread so it will seat properly in the tension disks.

If the bobbin thread is loose, then the bobbin tension may need to be tightened.

Why is bobbin thread showing through on pattern


you need to loosen the top tension. if you notice the tension is too loose on top and bottom at the same time then go ahead and tighten the bobbin tension a small amount. then you can adjust the tension of the top. if the top thread tension is too tight the thread from the bobbin will penetrate through. the opposite is true. if the top is too loose then too much of the top thread will penetrate the fabric underneath. remember to get the tensions between the top tension and bobbin tension equal so the knot will end in the middle of the fabric.

Tension will not say set, Stitches are good on top but underneath they are all bunched up


try setting the top tension on 4
clean under the needle plate
clean the bobbin area for loose threads or lint
make sure the bobbin is set in correctly

if these suggestion don't help then I suggest it may need servicing

The top stitch is perfect but underneath the material there are many loops. I am assuming this is from the bobbin. How do I correct this?


no, more likely your top tension is too loose causing the loops on the underside of your fabric, loops on top would be bobbin too loose. raise presser foot and rethread top thdead pulling thread into tension fully. set top tension dial to 5 and test sew. if still looping underneath try tightening top tension by turning dial up to 6. but usually top tension should only need minor adjustment tweeks. you can test top tension by lowering pressure foot to engage tension and holding thread just above needle thread guide, pulling thread downwards . there should be resistence on it to your pull. if you cant feel any then tension device may be faulty, and require service.

The thread underneath when sewing is too loosed


Usually thread too loose on the bottom is caused by the upper tension being too loose. The top and bottom tensions work together with the top thread making the underside of the stitch seem too taunt or too loose and the bobbin thread causing the top side of the stitch to be loopy or too tight. Select a large zig zag stick and sew a couple of inches. Then examine the stitch. It should look identical on both sides. Look to see which side is drawn too tight, the zig zag being smaller on that side with threads from the bottom threads pulled through. Then adjust the two tensions so that they make a uniform, identical stitch.

Also, when the bobbin tension is right you can hold the bobbin dangling by the thread and it won't spool out to the floor but will let loose a bit with a slight flick of the wrist. Too loose it will just spool out. Too tight and it won't drop at all. When you get that set right then do the above zig zag test to see where the top tension should be set.

My Pfaff sewing machine has started to loop the top thread underneath. Tried fixing the tension on the bobbin thread as they state in the manual, but the problem still persists. Any suggestions?


If the thread is looping underneath, you're top tension may be too loose or the thread may not be in the take-up lever. If it's looping on top, double check that the thread is in the bobbin tension or that the bobbin tension isn't too loose.

Can't get thread tension right on my Euro-Pro 7130


the top seam is actually the bobbin thread. dots on the underside means that the top tension is too tight. you may have a piece of thread or something gummy caught between the upper tension disks.

No bobbin tension


If the thread is loose on the bottom of the fabric, it's actually the top thread is too loose. Think of 2 little elves playing tug of war in your machine, one on toip and one underneath. If you have loops on bottom, the top needs to pull harder (tighten top tension)

Bobbin tension


This is an issue of your upper thread tension, so take a look at this generic tension solution

If you are in a pickle with your bobbin case, check top tension and bobbin case are free of lint, reset the top tension to 4, and adjust the bobbin tension to suit......some more detail on how to do that, is here
