Three dials along the top, the tension dial is the one nearest the needle end, normal tension is 4.
5 is tighter

The clutch on my kenmore 1310 won't disengage when i go to wind the bobbin. i turn the clutch knob toward me, and the clutch is still engaged.the machine needle continues to operate while i wind the bobbin


May be one of two problems.
1st you should be able to turn the nob about 90-120 degrees. Not a full turn.
If this is not the case follow these steps.

Turn the small screw on the nob about 2 full turns
Carefully turn the nob all the way off.
Inside there is a round part with 3 small prongs on it.
spin that 180 degree and put everything back together.

2nd your clutch is gummed up
You will need to remove the handwheel and motor belt for this.
Remove the nob, small 3 prong part, and motor belt.
Pull the handwheel off (it may be stuck on and hard to get off).
Clean inside the handwheel and the machine main shaft.
Lubricate the Main shaft and put handwheel back on.
When you put the small 3 prong part back on it needs to have the prongs sticking away from the machine.

Hope this fixes your machine

Easy fix is take to local repair person, but barring that you will need to look to replace the little knob so that it tightens down and grabs the larger knob. Sometime you'll need to try to place it on the machine a few different ways till it works right.


The little knob is used to disenage the machine for winding a bobbin. Add little bit of machine oil to help keep it loose.

Loose stich on bottom of fabric


Hi. The problem is that your upper tension is too loose. It needs to be tighter in order to pull the bobbin thread up.

How do i adjust the tention on my 786 overlocker . i haven't got a manual and the tention is not correct. what should i do


Make sure when you thread the machine that the pressure foot is in the up position and the thread go in between the tension discs. I have seen more problems from this not happening than anything else.
I have been repairing these for 25 years

Could not adjust both looper thread tention on singer ultralock


When servicing these machines I have found that the cover over the tensioners needs to be removed so you can see if there is more adjusting possible. If its a newer serger you would hold the knob somewhere in the middle (4-5) and adjust the knurled part that goes through it. Many times I have had to rebuild these tensioners as they get dirty and need cleaning and adjusting. It may take many tries until you have it adjusting correctly. But it needs to be done.

I need help with the tention settings on my simplicity serger pro please


All the problem that everyone had with the Simplicity Serge Pro are able to be fixed with the manual. I downloaded the manual from the Simplicity Home page: www.simplicityhomecare.com. That simple. Thank you for your assistance because you made me realize that I had to go get the answer myself if I wanted to get anything done yesterday. Waiting for 24 hours was just too long for me. There is also an 800-822-6691 hotline as well. I have already finished my project. Have a great day!
