Having a problem with bobbin thread showing through while trying to embroider on my pfaff 7570


Usually, slightly tightening the bobbin thread, and/or loosening the top thread solves this problem. Make sure there is no fluff in the bobbin area, clean and oil regularly. Experiment with these tension adjustments and make a note of what you did and what works.

How do i fix the tension on my pfaff tiptronic 2020


It sounds like you need to adjust the bobbin tension. There is a small screw on the bobbin case to tighten/loosen the thread's tension coming out of the case. Refer to the user manual on the procedure to set it.

What is the way to get even top and bottom thread tension. the machine is a Husqvarna 2000 6440


Let me give you a quick lesson in adjusting your tension. First, thread your bobbin and your upper thread with two different colors-it'll make it easier to see exactly what you need to adjust.

Thread your machine with the presser foot UP. The disks that control the tension (thread goes through them) are tightened up if the foot is down.

Change the machine tension with the presser foot DOWN. Because the disks won't be engaged (see above) if the foot is up, the disks won't move.

Start at the middle setting, 3. Go up to tighten, decrease to loosen. Each machine is different, even 2 different machines of the same model. The best thing to do is start at 3 and use a different color in the top and bobbin thread so you can easily see what changes to the tension do to your stitches.

Now use a straight stitch a sew 3 or so inches. Take a look at the top and bottom of the fabric. You don't want to see any (or at least not much) of the other color showing from the other side.

Loops on the bottom of the fabric means you need to tighten (increase) your top tension. If you're stitches on the bottom are causing puckering, then you need to loosen you're top tension. For the most part, you really don't want to touch your bobbin tension-leave that to a repair technician. The factory setting shouldn't be touched except by someone who really knows what they're doing.

Keep sewing a few inches at a time until you have the results you want. Now you're tension is where you need it!

My zigzag stitch has loose tension


Let me give you a quick lesson in altering the tension on your machine. First, make sure you're using two different colors of thread in your bobbin and in the top of your machine (this will make it easier to see what is going on).

Thread your machine with the presser foot UP. The disks that control the tension (thread goes through them) are tightened up if the foot is down.

Change the machine tension with the presser foot DOWN. Because the disks won't be engaged (see above) if the foot is up, the disks won't move.

How to adjust lower tension on pfaff hobby 370


On the bobbin case is a screw. Mark the case with a tiny dab of nail polish and the edge of the screw. This will tell you where you began.

Turn the screw: right to tighten and left to loosen.

This is an adjustment that is usually not needed unless you are changing the weight of the thread being used on the bobbin.

Tension Problem on Pfaff 2034, bobbin loops


Rule of thumb.. Loops on the bottom, problem on the top. Loops on the top, problems on the bottom.

Set your upper tension at 4, and rethread the machine from the top. Just before you thread the needle, but the presser foot down. If the thread pulls right thru easily, then the thread is not thru the tension wheel right. Because, if you can't pull the thread thru with the presser foot down, you have it threaded right.
