Question about Sewing Machines
The mechanism that the lever is supposed to operate does not even touch the tension parts. The arm that actually goes to the tension disks does not move when the presser foot is raised. Carefully examining all the parts reveals nothing broken, bent, worn, or otherwise deformed. All the parts are there, but they don't work. I have no service manual in spite of the fact that I have spent hours on the internet looking for one.
1. Take the top off.
2. Look at the back of the tension mechanism while you move the pressure foot lever.
3. You will see an arm go up against the back of the tension mechanism. This pushes the tension disc forward to release pressure.
4. Yours isn't doing this. The screw that holds the tension mechanism is likely to be loose.
5. Pull the foot in the up position.
6. Unscrew the tension mechanism a little more. Now push in on the mechanism and tighten.
7. Now you can try to see if this has worked.
