Question about Sewing Machines
You haven't provided symptoms of what is happening with your machine, so this is just a general guideline.
Remove all the threads from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading. Be sure to thread each thread IN THE ORDER specified--threading out of order will guarantee a problem! When threading the tensions, always give each thread an extra little tug to make sure it is seated completely (with one hand, grasp the thread below the thread tree and the other hand below the tension disk and tug--it may make a "pop" as it seats). Verify that each thread pathway is correct.
Set the tensions to the midway point. This is the standard beginning point for overlock tension adjustment, although some tweaking may be needed because every machine is different.
If the machine is still not performing correctly with some tweaking of the tensions, you may want to take it for service.
