Not quite sure what you are asking. The upper tension is governed by the tension disk. Higher number is tighter, lower number is looser. Usually, the mid-range is a good place to start. Tension is correct when upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

NOTE--ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading so the thread will seat in the tension disk!

My Elna sewing machine is sewing very loosely and it is very messy on the bottom side of my material, why?, and how can i fix it?


When your bottom thread is messy it is the top thread needing adjustment. Your machine may not be threaded properly and the thread may not be sitting correctly between the tension discs.
Check to make sure your machine is threaded correctly.
Check thread between the tension discs.
After checking, adjust the tension (tighter) and do a test. If it is still messy add some more tension and do another test.

How do you adjust the tension control on an Elna lotus SP


The tension dial is on the front of the machine right above the needle. The higher the number, the tighter the tension is applied to the top thread. HINT: When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot throughout the entire threading process. This allows the thread to seat completely in the tension disk. Tension is correct when the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

I have an Elna Elina 40 and bobbin thread on the top when sewing. I have fixed thread tension up top and then when nothing changed I adjusted bobbin tension and nothing changes. Please help!


Please explain more fully the symptoms your machine is displaying and what you are attempting to do when making adjustments.
===============

If the bobbin thread is showing on top of the fabric, the upper thread is too tight and/or the bobbin tension is too loose.

Set the upper tension to the midway point between high & low number, then retest your machine. If the bobbin thread is still showing on top, then the bobbin tension is a bit too loose.

FWIW, it is normal when using 2 different color threads that you can see a "dot" of the other thread from the opposite side (especially with thin, fine fabric). If you try tightening both tensions to get rid of the "dot," the fabric will probably begin to pucker. If you are seeing a dot of each thread on the opposite side, your tension is perfect! Try stitching thicker fabric and see if the dots disappear. When sewing, it is best to use the same color thread for top and bottom or use a thread color that closely matches the fabric. Then the dots blend in and are not as noticeable.

Threads jamming the bobbin case on elna sewing machine


Probably unevenly wound on the bobbin. Or tension needing adjusting, be careful to note where tension spring started before adjusting and do in very small increments.
Perhaps the spring has some fluff stuck on it and thread cannot slide through easily. Take out bobbin and clean

Sudden knotting under fabric


I have an Elna 2005 machine and had a similar but opposite problem whereby the tension up top was too tight - thread wouldn't pull smoothly. I found adjusting the feed dog lever slightly helped the stitches a lot, even though the needle tension up top is no better. Hope that helps! :-s
