Question about Singer Touch Sew 7462 Mechanical Sewing Machine
My machine is approx. 3 yrs. old. I sew with the tension on Auto and have had no problems. all of a sudden the bottom tension is too loose.
I cannot seem to get it adjusted with increasing the tension.
I took it to the local Singer store for the repair man to check it out.
He cleaned the machine and bobbin case and his scrap of material showed the tension the same top and bottom. He said if I had further problems the whole tension unit needed to replaced with a cost of half what I paid for the machine.
When I got the machine home it was doing the same thing.
Is it looping on the bottom of the fabric? If so this is a top tension issue, you need to check some things,
-make sure you thread the machine with the pressure foot up ( this allows the tension discs to open up so you can pull the fabric away from the machine with the foot up and allows the thread to get to bottom of the tension discs)
-make sure your tension settings are set to the medium setting. (Usually 4 or 5)
If this still does not help, then turn the top tension knob up (from 5 to 6,7,8,9....)
-If that still doesn't do it, your probably need the tensions reset. Let me know if you need more help.
