Machine is 30+ yrs old and tension settings .. There are 3.. Are all screwed up so stiches are not even, tight or inform...can someone help me know the normal setting and how to adjust for zigzag...


You haven't mentioned a brand or model number. Go to this YouTube page for general repairs and setting up zig zag.
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=how+to+adjust+seetings+on+sew+machine+for+zig+zag

But in any event, go to the manufacturer's website and go to the support page. Download the user manual, if they still have them, for your model. Settings should be located within manual.

The tension is off on my model 3962. What should I do the manual says to set the control know to "auto" it only goes from zero to four and then a black dot. Also what is the dial on the right side of the...


Well, one is the stitch length control (top) and one is the stitch selector (underneath it). I have never seen you machine; I found it out by download the instruction manual free from the Singer site, and you can too. I highly recommend it.

On page 19, it discusses tension settings.

Singer 3116 tension problem


since the tension is the same no matter where the dial is set, the machine may need a new tension dial.

Go to the singer website

Click on customer support--there will be a drop down menu

Choose instruction manual

In the box type the model number--(example 3116)

Click search

Where do i fix the tension at? i understand there is a top and bottom but i just dont understand. The thread keeps getting bunched up. It sews good for a bit then it just bunches up and i dont know what...


why dont you visit this website and read up some of the general info on sewing machines, should help you get started.

http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/bb/sewingmachines.htm

Usually you should only need to adjust the top tension a little bit for different fabrics but generally it should be fine on 5. Bottom tension is set by a little screw on the bobbin case (if yours is a removable front loading type) or sometimes a little dial if fixed horizontal bobbin case design. If machine has been set up correctly from new then bottom tension should not need to be touched at all.

It sounds more like your machine is not threaded properly, causing the thread bunching up to occur. If you don't have a manual you may find a threading diagram at www.sewusa.com or www.singerco.com, the Singer website has instruction manuals for download free for many models.

It sounds like you may be a beginner sewer, in which case, I highly recommend taking a few classes to learn how to best utilise your machine and save lots of frustration too.

The machine will sew about three inches then the hook gets several threads around it and stops. I think the timing is off. How to set hook timing on a 2263 Singer Sewing Machine?


You can download an instruction manual for Singer machines from here http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, just type in the model number and click "search".

This sounds more like top thread is not in tension though so have you checked tension is working okay?

However, to adjust timing you will need a service manual or general instructions for a horizontal hook sewing machine. You may find a video that helps with this on You-tube, I just leave it to the experts.

Looking for sewing machine manual for singer sewing machine model 6218. The bottom bobbin tension is so loose that it forms many loops under the fabric.


I went to the singer website & typed the number in 6218 & it came up with nothing, is that the correct model number?
the tension problem try adjusting the top thread tension to 3-5, & see if that helps the loose tension

"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.


Singer sells manuals on their site (a few you can download for free) at http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html.
