SOURCE: I get loops on top and/or bottom of fabric during

Top tension back to 4 and leave the bobbin tension as is.

Make sure you have a new needle for the type of fabric being sewn installed with the flat side to the back of the machine. A bent needle can sometimes go unnoticed.

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up and this will give proper tension to the stitch.

Check the manual to be sure you are threading correctly (always with the presser foot up) and that the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guides.

Take hold of the thread at the needle as you lower and raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread. Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

SOURCE: lower thread tension very loose

is the bobbin threaded correctly? the screw on the bobbin case is the point to adjust its tension.

What is the rght tension for The Elna Contessa 410 sewing machine?


Every machine is different, so a "right" tension will vary. The factory standard tension setting is the midway point between high & low number...BUT that needs to be tweaked per your machine.

Skipped stitches? Be sure to use a brand new needle and a needle that is compatible with the thread and fabric you are sewing. (Replacing an old needle is the most common and least expensive fix for a lot of machine problems.)

Optimal tension is when the upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

How do i adjust the tension on elna 2003?


Not quite sure what you are asking. The upper tension is governed by the tension disk. Higher number is tighter, lower number is looser. Usually, the mid-range is a good place to start. Tension is correct when upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

NOTE--ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading so the thread will seat in the tension disk!

Standard tension setting


I can't see your model listed, only Elna Sewing machine, which may be one of the newer ones or could also be an older Swiss made. machine. So, can't tell if you've got a top loading bobbin where the bobbin case is integrated into the machine. Or some Elnas such as the Contessa and Primula were a front loading bobbin in a case, these are a bit different in setting the lower tension.

But generally, you shouln't need to mess with the lower tension, and top tension should be in the range of 5, sometimes 4-6 depending on what you are sewing. If you are having top thread issues its more likely to be a gunked up tension device or something missed in the threading path causing the issue. If you can add in your actual model I may be able to assist more specifically.

Elna threading and reverse instructions


Hi
I have a Primula 310

The reverse is located in the middle of the stitch length dial, you press in the button whilst you reverse.

When threading up any sewing machine make sure the foot is 'up' as this opens the tension disks and the thread goes between. when you lower the foot the discs close around the thread and add the tension.

Hope this helps
