The 730 rotary hook is a bit sensitive to adjustment and cleaning. Make sure that the hook is clean and if you haven't oiled it for a while, give it a drop of oil (do you know where to put it ... many dont !) Check your needle is OK and, again, if used for a while, just put a new one in anyway. Load-up with different colours of the same type of thread top and bottom and sew-off a sequence of zig-zag, starting with the default and increasing the width and reducing the length until you get to a maximum width satin-stitch (dont increase the bobbin or top tension as you do it). Once you've done that, let me know what it looks like. The colours should be equal top and bottom, but maybe just a bit of top coming through to the underside on max width satin stitch. You'd also be advised to sew-off using pattern number 437 and the figure '9' - this will check the balance of the machine. If the '9' is not perfect, or the top section of the pattern 437 is not dead-central on the top of the triangular part of the pattern, the balance may need adjustment. Let me know how you get on.
