Question about Sewing Machines
I just received a very old hand me down sewing machine. I can thread the machine, but I am having problems with threading the bobbin properly and setting the tension. I have the owners manual, but it refers to the instructions in the small envelope included in the box of accessories. I don't have this. It says it shows the proper way to thread the bobbin and the bobbin case. Can someone help please?
If you go to this link, it shows for the 117.591 model, but it is threaded the same exact way as the 117.959, that will thread the machine and bobbin, I have used this to thread my machine which is the 117.959, and it sewed perfectly until I started messing with the tension, I still haven't figured that part out yet, but I will and when I do, I will let you know. You should be able to thread the bobbin correctly with the manual, if you are pulling the bobbin through the hole the needle is going down in, your bobbin is threaded correctly, if the problem is like mine, your not making stitches, the problem is with the tension. I hope I have helped and if not, sorry.
