Question about Euro-Pro Shark Mini Mechanical Sewing Machine
Make sure the bobbin thread goes through the tension spring. if that's ok, try adjusting the little screw on the bobbin case. bobbin tension is correct if you hold it (with bobbin loaded) by the tail of the thread leaving the bobbin case. when you do that, it should hang in the air but release thread if you pull it gently. if it comes out to freely (case does not hang in air, but slides down) try turning the screw clockwise, 1/4 turn at a time til it's right. if it won't release thread without a struggle, turn the screw counterclockwise, 1/4 turn at a time. Good luck!

SOURCE: tension on stitches
Loose bottom stitches mean the UPPER tension has a problem. 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 does not work this way( the tension stays loose) you will need to set the tension to Zero, open the discs with a small screwdriver and remove the lint or thread which is stuck in there.

SOURCE: Tension problems
start with the bottom- should allow thread to pass freely with slight tension when dangled from the thread. Tiny screw on the bobbin case turned clockwise tightens tension. Next, check upper tension. Thread should pull through with foot down, with good tension. Stitch should 'lock inside the fabric(use two pieces of fabric and make a seam, thread from both top and bottom should be visible when you open the seam.

SOURCE: How do I adjust the
Make sure that your top threading is right. My sister in law has this same machine and it is a really hard thing to do, Your manual has very vague instructions but check your thread going through the tension discs by pulling on the top thread with the presser foot up, it should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down, it should barely move. /Sometimes this seats the thread in the tension discs. She is having no luck with the buttonhole making. In 50 years of sewing I have never seen a more vague manual and no customer service at all.
