I cannot adjust bottom tension on Pfaff creative 1.5 straight stitch


Hello Mary Jane,
Are there loops on the underside of the stitching? This means that the top tension is too loose -- increase the needle tension.

Are there loops on the topside of the stitching? This means that the top thread is too tight -- decrease the needle tension.

The user manual refers to this on pages 30 and 35. The manual is available free at

Please give be a thumbs up if this is helpful, otherwise please provide more information.
Happy Stitching

My sewing machine is lemeiux 7000 . My thread is breaking and Seam from the lower side is very loose .what could be the reason


It is a tension problem, check your needle to make sure it does not have a burr this will cause thread to break.
if the stitching is loose on the underside you have to figure out if it is the top thread going to the underside and making loops of thread, your tension is too loose so tighten ever so slightly and sew a few stitches till it is even, if it is the bobbin thread that is bunching up try re threading it and make sure you are using the same thread on both bobbin and top, some will not work together. hope this helps good luck

The underside of the stitching is loose how can i fix that I toyed the bobbing that did not work please help!!!!!


When the underside of the stitching is loose the problem is most likely with the top thread. Unthread the machine then rethread it making sure that the thread is securely in the tension disk and the machine is correctly threaded.

The bottom stitching looks like a line and not stitches the top stitching is fine


try adjusting the top thread tension and see if that helps
also try changing the thread.
also change the needle--make sure it's the right needle for the fabric
being sewed.

Big loops at the bottom of the material


Hello smallflame,

The looping on the underside of the fabric is due to the tension on the upper threading being to low. Try setting the tension dial to a higher setting. If this does not help, make sure that you are using the correct needle for the fabric you are stitching on. If the problem persists you should try rethreading the upper fabric.

Thanks,

Pat

When sewing elastic type material it keeps knoting


you may need to use a certain type of thread for jersey knits and stretch fabrics also your machine should have a setting for stretch stitches to allow for smoother sewing

Stitching too tight on top


I found a screw on the bobbin case (where you put the cotton for the underside stitching) which was very loose. I tightened it and that created more tension for the bottom thread which solved the problem.
