Question about Brother SE-270D Computerized Sewing Machine
I have a SE270D. The bobbin thread it came with is 60wt...and costs 10.95 a spool. I would like to change over to a more affordable bobbin thread. I have tried several different bobbin threads and each time I get less than perfect results. I was told that I need to adjust my bobbin tension..but how do I do it? I'm so afraid of messing my machine up...does anyone know what I can do to fix my problem???
I looked forever to find this darn green bobbin screw. Around the opening for your bobbin is a plastic cover. If you slide it forward it will pop right off. Once you remove this, the bobbin case will lift right out. On the front you will see your green screw for adjusting your bobbin tension.

The bobbin screw on my se 270 D is covered in green paint. Should be easy to spot.

The bobbin thread tension
has already been adjusted at the factory for general use. For most
applications, no adjustment is needed.
When sewing with then
thread on thin fabrics, the thread tension may not be adjusted adequately with
the upper tension control dial. Therefore, the thread tension must be
adjusted according to the procedure described below.
If bobbin tension is too
loose and locks appear on the surface of the fabric, decrease the thread tension
by turning the dial to a lower number.
If the result is still
not satisfactory, then adjust the bobbin thread tension.
Increase the tension in the bobbin by turning the screw with a small screwdriver in a clockwise direction. However, do not turn the screw more than one full turn.
