How do I adjust tension on the bobbin?


First of all, be absolutely certain that the problems being experienced are not a result of the upper thread tension, ie threading when the presser foot is not in the up position, thread pathway is correct, a brand-new needle compatible with the thread and fabric, etc.

Before making any adjustments to the bobbin tension, be sure to mark the bobbin case where the skrew slot sets with permanent marker or a small drop of nail polish. This will allow you to reset it to original should your adjustments not be successful. And, make only minor movements of the tension adjustment, ie 1/8th of a turn, then re-test, before making another adjustment. Tiny incremental changes will make a huge difference in the outcome.

How do to adjust the bobbin tension? Do I need to remove the throat plate and loosen the screws that hold the bobbin mechanism in place so I can get to the tension screw?


the tension screw for the bobbin thread is on the side of the bobbin carrier
that bit that you put the full bobbin in to clip it back onto the machine
t there is a small spring plate that you pull the bobbin thread under when you put the bobbin back in the carrier and you pull the thread down a slot and under that spring plate
the tension is adjusted by that small screw that holds that plate on
only very small adjustments make a lot of difference to the tension
don't touch any other screws or you will alter the needle /hook timing and that will put you a pickle

How do I set bobbin tension?


Generally bobbin tension is the last thing to try to adjust on your machine. Most sewists adjust the bobbin tension ONLY if they are using very lightweight or very heavyweight thread in the bobbin. Most sewists will advise to make all possible adjustments to the top tension before tackling the bobbin tension to resolve issues.

Thread is bunching up from bobbin side think tension needs adjusting


I assume you have tried adjusting the top thread tension and are referring to bobbin tension adjustment. Before you do anything, with the bobbin properly threaded, manually pull out some bobbin thread. There should be resistance, just like the resistance you feel when you pull on the top thread with the foot down. Bobbin tension adjustment is by means of a small screw in the bobbin assembly. Mark the screw head position before you start adjusting it (so you can return to that position should you need to). Make small adjustments (1/8 turn of the screw) in each direction and see if it helps the problem. Be aware that thread tension is only one of many problems that can result in faulty stitches.

I have a EURO -PRO model 9110. The bobbin tension is not correct.The top thread can be easily pulled out after sewing.How do I adjust the bobbin tension?


Hi janna

have you tried adjusting the top tension first?
if you have a drop in bobbin then it has to be adjusted at a sewing shop
the bobbin case you take out of the machine you can, using a small screw driver,,here's how
lower bobbin tension--
to test the bobbin tension,
remove the bobbin case & bobbin,,
hold it by suspending it by the thread,,
**** it once or twice,,
if the tension is correct, the thread will unwind by about an inch or two
if the tension is too tight, it does not unwind at all
if the tension is too loose, it will drop too much
to adjust turn small screw on the side of the bobbin
to the left is tighten
to the right is loosen

Bobbin case does not stay in place


I looked at the 4210, here http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html

And I do not see any adjustment. Refer to the page for installing the bobbin - are you using the right size bobbin?

Difficulty adjusting tension to avoid bobbin looping


it sounds like your bobbin tension is too tight. to adjust bobbin tension, remove bobbin case (remove needle plate first) and adjust bobbin tension screw on side of case until bobbin thread has a slight resistance as you pull it through the bobbin case.

this will be trial and error until you get best result. you should always try and match top and bottom threads. if the top thread is quite thick you may have continue to increase needle thread tension until balanced.
