You can view or print the manual at the Brother website - http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/default.aspx?PGID=3&R3ModelID=LS1217

Be sure the presser foot is up before threading.

Need to know what the knobs are for


Are you sure that it's a Singer LS-1217? I can't find any model with 1217 on the Singer site.

The Brother LS-1217 manual is available here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/eu/eu_ot/en/doc/manual_top.html?reg=eu&c=eu_ot&lang=en&prod=hf_ls1217euk . The direct link to the English version of the manual is http://download.brother.com/welcome/doch000000/ls12171217b13171417ug01enesfrpt.pdf . There are only a few knobs on most machines. On the front near the needle is the Needle Thread Tension knob. If you use contrasting colors (different top, bobbin and fabric colors), you might see a straight stitch where the top thread is visible on the bottom of the fabric for example. Adjust the tension to get both the top and bobbin threads meeting in the middle of the fabric layers. (Increase the needle thread tension - rotate to a higher number but go in 0.5 increments.)

Then you have near the motor area the stitch width and length knobs. The width is only for zigzag stitches. A long stitch length is good for a temporary seam (like basting in a zipper or hem) before you finish that area. However, the width and length should be adjusted depending on the fabric. A fine fabric needs a smaller stitch, usually. The knob on the right side of the machine is the balance wheel (or hand wheel). This adjusts the needle height so that you can have the needle out of the way while changing the bobbin, for example.

I hope this helps.

I have a Brother LS-1217. The tension will not adjust. I have re-threaded this several times, checked the bobbin and needle. Is this something I could fix and/or is it worth having repaired?


You should be able to fix this. IF it is the top thread on your fabric that is screwy you need to adjust the bobbin tension.
If it is the bottom thread you have a problem with your upper tension. Blow out the upper tension assembly using canned air, the tension discs may be dirty

The underside stitch is a mass of loose thresd


A mass of loose thread on the bottom of the fabric most likely indicates a total loss of upper tension. Remove the upper thread, raise the presser foot and rethread the machine. Make sure that the upper tension knob/dial is around 5. If you still have a problem, let me know what brand and model you have.
