There is a tiny screw on the side of the bobbin case.

Mark the **** (in the screw head) position on the bobbin case with tiny dab of nail polish so you will know where the original setting was.

Left/loose and right/tight.

If you are adjusting because the bottom stitching is loose/loopy, first try threading the machine with the presser foot up to see if this solves the problem.

Very very rarely do yiu need to do that,but there should be a little screw on the side if the bobbin which regulates tension.
I would rather try different tensions on the needle and alter stitch length than touch the bobbin.

I have a EURO -PRO model 9110. The bobbin tension is not correct.The top thread can be easily pulled out after sewing.How do I adjust the bobbin tension?


Hi janna

have you tried adjusting the top tension first?
if you have a drop in bobbin then it has to be adjusted at a sewing shop
the bobbin case you take out of the machine you can, using a small screw driver,,here's how
lower bobbin tension--
to test the bobbin tension,
remove the bobbin case & bobbin,,
hold it by suspending it by the thread,,
**** it once or twice,,
if the tension is correct, the thread will unwind by about an inch or two
if the tension is too tight, it does not unwind at all
if the tension is too loose, it will drop too much
to adjust turn small screw on the side of the bobbin
to the left is tighten
to the right is loosen

THREAD BUNCHING UP


there should be a small flat screw on the bobbin case that needs to be adjusted - turn to the left very slightly to weaken or lessen the tension and turn to the right very slightly to strengthen or tighten the tension. there may be two little screws in the same place - on my bobbin case, the screw to turn is the bigger one and is closer to the thread opening. hope this helps!
