Putting this back together is a thirty second job if you have done it a hundred times. If you have never done it but have mechanical aptitude, it may be a challenge.

Whatever you do, don't bend the check spring out of shape!

Below is a link to the Singer site with the schematic for reassembly. When placing the check spring back in place, place it in about the 6 o'clock position with no tension so that it has a fair amount of check before pulling it up in place..

When setting the tension, at a setting of "1" the tension disks should just be slightly compressing the beehive spring. "0" is almost no tension at all. Normal sewing is 5.

Get all of the parts together and push in the cup with the numbers while screwing on the knurled nut taking care to get the pin in one of the holes.

SOURCE: singer 57817 thread tension problem

Hello,

If you have Increased the upper thread tension on your machine, try these solutions.

* Decrease your bobbin tension if your sewing machine allows you to adjust it. Consult your manual.

* Re-thread your bobbin, It may be threaded incorrectly.

* Reinsert your bobbin, It may be inserted incorrectly.

* Change your thread. If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for both.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: bobbin tension is too loose

"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

Hi. The upper tension is too loose (even tho it looks ok). If the upper thread is too loose, it can't pull the bobbin thread up to properly form the stitch and you get those messy 'birds nest' on the bottom side of the fabric. I posted a Tip on Adjusting Tension--read that and adjust your upper tension.

Thanks!

The tension knob will not turn below four. The thread keeps breaking.


check that the thread is between the plates and not behind them
thread breaking can be from wrong size needle eye, poor quality thread , old thread and needle/ eye timing

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.

I have no tension on my singer 8734. The tension will not get tighter when I turn the know the + direction. The tread just pulls through very easily.


You must thread your machine with the presser foot UP, and here's why. There are disks that face each other on EVERY sewing machine; that is what applies the tension. Those disks are spread when the presser foot is UP to allow the thread to pass in between them. When you put the presser foot DOWN, the disks come together again and apply the tension. You will only feel tension on thread with the presser foot down.

Depends on the exact construction, but there will be two disks that look sort of like frisbees or dinner plates. They have to face each other, back of the plate to back of the plate, like )( and not like ().

How to thread singer merritt 3130?


Do you have a manual? If not, you can download one from singerco.com. It sounds like the top tension is too loose. Lowering the presser foot will engage the tension disks. The tension disks are located behind the needle thread tension dial. Slowly lower the presser foot, watching the tension disks press together. The thread passes between the tension disks around from the right, underneath and back up to the take up lever. The manual will tell you the location of these parts.
