The best that I can do for you is to tell the order in which the parts go back into place. You have three disks that are similar and a fourth disk with a bar coming out of it. Put the three disks closest to the machine and the fourth disk with the bar on it on the outside and the bar goes into the hole in the sewing machine. Before you push these parts onto the tension bar, you have to take the check spring (loopy spring thing) and sandwhich these four parts in between the loop of the check spring. As you are putting this into the machine, there is a sprocket type of assembly that engages the spring. Once this is in place, you have a cup shaped piece, then a beehive shaped spring, then a washer with a bar through the middle of it and a point (the point should go to the lower part of the bar). Then comes the silver wheel, then the number wheel is attached to that. I hope this helps you.

Should you need to purchase any parts for your machine, I do have them all available on www.sewingandvac.com

The tension dials on my Bernina 2000DCE overlocker is not working, no matter where I turn the dials, the tension remains the same, a mess! Any suggestions?


Possible problems are lint between the tension discs. You can clean this with a business card. If the tension discs are not meeting together you must take the machine apart to adjust the spring tension. If all the tension discs not closing. If that is the case your presser foot tension release lever may be stuck.

Tighten the tension


Try these following steps:1. Look to see whether the thread loopsappear on the fabric back side. If this is the case, the tension on your sewingmachine is too loose.2. Check to see if your fabric ispuckering on the front side when you sew. If this happens, then your tension istoo tight.3. Adjust your needle thread tensionwith your machine threaded and your presser foot pedal down.4. Turn your thread tension dial asneeded. If you increase the number on your tension thread dial, you will beincreasing the tension on your sewing machine. If you are lowering the numberon your tension thread dial, you will be decreasing the tension on yourmachine.5. Clean your thread tension with asmall piece of paper or a toothpick. Slide the toothpick or paper between thediscs to remove any tangles of thread.Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

I have looping underneath. Top stitch looks great.


top tension is too loose,check threading up and tension dial. should be on 4-6. read manual and if possible clean tension device. if it is accessible you turn dial to zero and "floss" between tension discs using selvage edge of clean piece of cotton fabric. you can moisten it with denatured alcohol if very dirty. thread sheds dye particles, especially black or cheaper threads. needs to be removed regularly to keep tension discs clean. turn back dial to 5 after and thread up again. often this will resolve the problem

My top thread is making a mess when I try to sew. It bunches up and gathers the material into a mess. Please help


I believe your tension is to tight. Loosen your tension dial, while using a piece of scrap material. Continue till you achieve tension you are happy with. GOOD LUCK.

I have a jones vx810 and have taken the tension dial apart and now icant put it back together as idont know what goes where


you can purchase a new tension dial here
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/tension-brother-vx-800-sewing-machine.aspx for your machine. This may be simpliest solution.

there is also a manual on that site http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-book-brother-vx810-sewing-machine-instruction-manual.aspx but I can't see images to know if it includes an exploded diagram of the tension dial.

Thread tension dial on riccar sewing mach. needs repaired


Please, tell me, is the main spintle, still on the machine, or it came off with the rest of the parts?

If you can put the tension parts, the one next to the other in front of the machine, and upload a photo for me, it will be very easy to explain how to put them back.

Tension disc assembly - sewing machine


Sorry but there is no way to explain how to re-assemble the tension mech on here, you need to be actually shown or have someone do it for you. It is very fiddly and needs to be exact, can I suggest you get in touch with a sewing machine tech who(at cost) will sort you out.
Sorry I cannot be of any further help.
