First thing is to make sure there is no lint etc caught in the tension unit, even a small amount can reduce tension considerably.
If that doesn't solve the problem, we need you to give more detail of the machine, as there are a couple of different tension units which require different methods, 'over the top' or 'around a knob' ........which of these two is most like your machine ?
If you want any more help with this, post back to here, or just drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au

If you have pattern dials set correctly then I might guess that one or more sets may have been missed when the thread was being set up in the machine. most of these models show either arrows or numbers for each or way the thread needs to be routed.

SOURCE: coverstitch tensions to tight
Coverstitch machines are very particular when it comes to thread. Use only MaxiLock cone thread. Do not use TruSew or SureLock thread. This can make the difference between working beautifully or not at all.

I have sneaking idea that it is your bobbin causing the problem. I have a Singer Stylist 7458 using a plastic 15j bobbin and the stitches were terrible until I changed to a metal bobbin, which Singer claims will scar the case, so I switched to a plastic class 15. I think you should call Singer at 1-800-4singer and complain that you are having nothing but problems with their "surefit" bobbin. I don't know what the 'surefit" is equivolent to, but Singer owes you an explanation. Sorry, I am so wordy but I am tired of these companies to save 3 cents give us junk and then act like it our fault if we try to remedy it. They told me to take for warranty, that the bobbin should have no problems, but my friend and sister in law has the same machine that I do and we all had the same problem. Does that mean 3 in a row are defective? The warranty center is over 100 miles away, and you know that they would not work on it right away and I would have to wait plus drive the extra 100 miles again. Or mail it, great service, right? I will use that bobbins that work and not listen to them because I will be bald pulling my hair out trying to use the bobbin that came with my machine. LOL Where did you buy your machine? Do they give lessons? Like JoAnn's? Go to a sewing center and see if they can hook you up with another bobbin that will work. Again sorry that I am so wordy, Good luck
