Question about Singer Touch Sew 7462 Mechanical Sewing Machine
How do i fix my sewing machine when the bottom thread sews loose?i can only take out the bobbin itself and i don't see any screws to tighten, and tightening the tension doesn't work either...
It could be that you threaded the machine with presser foot down.
When the foot is down, then tension control is closed and the thread cannot seat for proper control to the needle.
What appears to be a bobbin problem is actually the top thread not having the tension needed (thead is not where it should be within the tension control) to form a stitch.

IT PROBABLY IS THREADED INCORRECTLY. GO SLOWLY BY THE DIAPHRAGM AND MAKE SURE IT IS THREADED CORRECTLY. ALSO MAKE SURE SPOOL PIN HOLDERS ARE IN PLACE THAT HELPS TO GUIDE THE THREAD CORRECTLY.

"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

You did it backwards!!! Reset the bottom tension to the default position, with heavy threads its touchy to get back to normal. Turn the upper tension about 1 turn clockwise (tighter) and try. No luck, try a turn then test, then a turn, test.....The size of the thread can cause issues as well. We mostly use #69 nylon threads, but the 1541 can use # 69 to 192 without to many problems. look in the book for how to reset the bobbin case tensions. The 1541 is a wonderful machine, much better quality than the chinese junk being sold nowadays.

Probably a little heavy duty for a domestic machine - most don't like thread through the bobbin tension device any heavier than 50 grade.
Some tension devices have a hole that you can use to bypass the tension spring (Elna is one) which allows thread like perle cotton to be used in the bobbin. But you still can't put it through the needle (just on the underside for decorative sewing effects) .
In the past I've needed to sew vinyl tractor seats where I was stitching the vinyl to a 1/4" thick foam and after trying everything (roller foot, leather needle) on the domestic machine, I bought a Singer 20U industrial machine with 1 1/2 hp motor in a table in order to seam this weight of textile. Different system needle used and the bobbin could handle heavier weight thread.
Probably not the response you wanted though.
