The thread tensions are automatically set with the automatic thread delivery system. You should just have to set the Stitch Dial to get the stitch you want.

How to adjust the tension of the serger machine


It helps a lot to use 4 different colors so it is easier to tell which thread tension needs adjustment.

Sergers have tension dials for every thread. Start out with the dials set at the midway point between high & low numbers (this is the factory standard, however, the settings can change with machine use and wear). Be sure to RAISE the presser foot while thread every thread--this allows the tension disks to open. It also helps to grab the thread with one hand below the thread tree and, with the other hand, grab the thread below the tension disk and give it a little tug to insure the thread is seated all the way in the tension disk. Check to make sure every thread is threaded in the proper order (consult the owner's manual) and that every thread follows the correct path.

Test. Tweak the thread tensions. Higher number usually tightens a loose tension, lower number loosens. The correct tension is when the looper threads meet at the very edge of the fabric without causing fabric pucker; needle threads should be smooth with no loops or pulliing.

How do you adjust the bobbin tension?


Factory standard tension for upper thread is the midway point between the high and low number. However, that tension dial is meant to be used for tweaking tension. Generally, tweaking is required whenever the type of fabric, needle, or thread are changed, ie thicker fabric like denim should have a different upper tension setting than fine chiffon. To be successful with tension settings, one must become comfortable adjusting the upper tension.

NOTE: Accurate tension is achieved when the upper thread and bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric.

The bottom thread is real loopy. I have adjusted the top tension and it helps a bit but still to loose


Remove all the thread from your machine. Install a brand new needle. Raise the presser foot and re-thread the upper thread, making sure you are following the correct threading sequence. Confirm that the bobbin thread is threaded through the bobbincase properly. Now, perform another test stitch. Is the bobbin thread still looping?

If you have already tightened the upper thread tension and the bobbin tension is still too loose, then you may need to tighten the bobbin tension. First, mark with a permanent marker where the slash of the screw head meets the bobbin case. This will mark where the screw was originally set before you begin making adjustments and allows you to return the screw to that position should you need to.

Set the upper tension to the halfway point between the high & low number. This is what would normally be the standard.

Then gently turn the bobbin tension screw to the right 1/8th of a turn at a time. Then test. Keep adjusting until the bobbin thread tension is correct. The tensions are correct when the upper thread and the bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric.

I just got my sewing machine 2 months ago just started to use it icant because it keep breaking the thread ihave a fleeling i have it sat up wrong like the teason als may be t o tight thanks Jan from


***Upper tension setting
*** Put the pressure foot up.
***As you are threading give little tugs to check for snags. Snags must be fixed.
***When finished threading (not the needle) put the pressure foot down.
***Check the tension by starting at zero and increase the tension slowly and give small tugs to see if the tension is rising. (This is all done without the needle being threaded)
***When you feel comfortable this is working then thread the needle and set the tension at four.
***Set the bobbin tension. Attachment gives instructions.
Now that all of the tension has been set you can try for

Over locker loopy bottom stitch


Loopy on bottom means the top tensions need to be adjusted. "All on 3 means nothing" These are tension knobs and are not required to be on the same number.

In the mean time rethread the machine with a different color on each spool This will help you determine which thread is the offender. sew the same type of material this thread set up... tighten the corresponding tension dial. Once you get a good stitch, Lift the food, cut all the threads near the spools and tie off new thread/spools and pull the thread through to the needle. Once it is all threaded again test your stitch with the same fabric again.

The tension is off. What is the proper setting?


Between 4 - 6 should be the normal setting.

Sometimes threading is a bigger issue - always thread sewing machines with the presser foot up.

When you do this, then tension opens and allows the thread to enter where it can be properly guided to the needle.

If a sewing machine is threaded with the presser foot down, the tension control is closed to the sewing setting and the thread cannot enter as it should resulting in the tension having no control of the flow of the thread to the needle.
