SOURCE: Singer 6105 Tension knob

First make sure that the thread you are using in the bobbin is the same brand and type as in the spool that is threaded. I've read that using different weight threads at the same time can cause tension problems. I have actually had this problem and following this advice it went away. If this doesn't work you may need to have the machine serviced, unless someone else in the forum can advise otherwise. Good luck.

Need to know what the knobs are for


Are you sure that it's a Singer LS-1217? I can't find any model with 1217 on the Singer site.

The Brother LS-1217 manual is available here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/eu/eu_ot/en/doc/manual_top.html?reg=eu&c=eu_ot&lang=en&prod=hf_ls1217euk . The direct link to the English version of the manual is http://download.brother.com/welcome/doch000000/ls12171217b13171417ug01enesfrpt.pdf . There are only a few knobs on most machines. On the front near the needle is the Needle Thread Tension knob. If you use contrasting colors (different top, bobbin and fabric colors), you might see a straight stitch where the top thread is visible on the bottom of the fabric for example. Adjust the tension to get both the top and bobbin threads meeting in the middle of the fabric layers. (Increase the needle thread tension - rotate to a higher number but go in 0.5 increments.)

Then you have near the motor area the stitch width and length knobs. The width is only for zigzag stitches. A long stitch length is good for a temporary seam (like basting in a zipper or hem) before you finish that area. However, the width and length should be adjusted depending on the fabric. A fine fabric needs a smaller stitch, usually. The knob on the right side of the machine is the balance wheel (or hand wheel). This adjusts the needle height so that you can have the needle out of the way while changing the bobbin, for example.

I hope this helps.

Singer 6038 tension dial not working


there should be small washers ( discs with a tapered flange to direct the thread between the plates ) if they are not under the spring behind the tension adjuster knob then that will be your problem
if they are there then check that the tread is between the plates and not behind them
missing plates are available from a sewing machine mechanic sgop

I have a Singer 9910 machine and I cannot get the thread tension correct. Every time I try and sew it bobbin thread is showing on the top.


Turn the tension knob to the left. Look at your manual and if you cannot find it, go to singerco.com and download it. Do not turn the knob too much each time or you will get it all messed up. Just a small amount each time.

Model 4832c


guide the 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 like this, then there is probably thread stuck inside the tension assembly. Set the tension to zero and blow hard between the discs to dislodge the thread. If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle.

Check to be sure you have the correct bobbin and that it is inserted the correct way.
OR remove the needle plate to remove the bobbin case. Look for any burrs or rough spots. Use a fine emery stick and steel wool to remove and buff them Reassemble and try again.
