Model 4075 white sewing machine problem with thread from bobbin


1. Replace thread with good thread. (Check by holding to light to see if there is fuzz).
2. Adjust the bobbin tension. The tension on top is set to three and the bobbin tension should be equal to this amount.
3. Replace needle.
4. Check the top tension with tension foot down to see if the thread can move or does it get stuck? If it gets stuck the tension control may need adjusted or cleaned.
5. Pull the bobbin thread above the throat plate and pull on the thread. It must have some tension but not get stuck.

6020 off problem


Not sure, but am thinking perhaps the tension disk has gunk or threads stuck in it. Try soaking a length of perl cotton in rubbing alcohol, squeeze out the excess. Raise the presser foot and loosen the tension disk as far as possible and gently pull the perl cotton DOWN through the tension disk a few times.

If that doesn't help, then it's possible a spring in the tension mechanism or something in the presser foot lever is malfunctioning.

Problems with thread tension.Cant grt any tension


It's probably assembled ok. If you're trying to adjust the tension with the pressure foot up, it won't work. The pressure foot needs to be down in order to adjust the tension.
Let me know if this works, ok?

Tension dial not correcting tension problems


Look to see if the 'check spring" is still there, and not broken.
If the tesion nob can be truned without any feeling of tension, then maybe the screw that attaches the 'tension housing' to the stem has loosen or broken.

You seem to have a tension problem or a threading problem. Try the following: 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.

Help! Tension Problems


Looping on the top means there is no tension on bottom. The bobbin thread generally rotates counter clockwise. The thread must get under the tension spring. The spring must be adjusted equal to the top tension. This you will have to play with to tighten or loosen as needed. When you sew in a zigzag you might want to loosen the top tension slightly. On a regular basis remove the bobbin case and clean with a qtip. On the race put one drop of sewing machine oil. Clean the bobbin case and replace.
