Question about Singer Quantum 9910 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I have a singer quantum 9910 that I have been using for years. As I was quilting a project the upper thread tension started to go wonky. I have taken the machine apart to clean it, changed the thread and the bobbin and no luck. It still is off. Any other ideas?

I would say that it probably is time for a tune up, they are kind of like cars and need to tuned up every so often. Luckily, not as expensive as cars. Good luck

Why stitches on top are great but bottom are loose and loopy?

Check your upper threading. Make sure it's between your tension discs. Remember loops on bottom, something is wrong with upper threading/tension. Loops on top something is wrong in the bobbin area (like the bobbin being in upside down or a loose bobbin tension spring)

start by rethreading the top thread with the presser foot UP.

I am very dissapointed with this machine, i bought it 2 years ago but i have hardly used it as i can never get the tension right and waste too much time trying to do a simple project and always revert back...

Your 9910 is a fantastic machine and offers great value for money. Your tension problems and bobbin problems seems to be related. First remove the two screws on the needle plate and check if your bobbin case sits correctly. It should sit evenly on the rim of the hook-round metal. Turn the hand wheel towards you and the bobbin case should sit perfectly still. If so replace the needle plate and fasten the 2 screws. Next, lift your presser foot and remove all thread from the machine. Re thread your machine with the presser foot still up and the tension dial on "auto". When you get to the point where you are ready to thread the eye of the needle, lower the presser foot and pull down on the thread. You should feel resistance. If not, there may be fluff or other obstruction in the tension disk. If everything is OK, thread the eye of the needle, pick up the bottom thread and sew. Good Luck.

I have a Singer 9910 machine and I cannot get the thread tension correct. Every time I try and sew it bobbin thread is showing on the top.

Turn the tension knob to the left. Look at your manual and if you cannot find it, go to and download it. Do not turn the knob too much each time or you will get it all messed up. Just a small amount each time.

I have a Singer Futura CE-100. I have had it for 3 years but have not used it much because I can't get the tension correct. I have had it repaired/maintained twice most recently this week. I can now sew on...

Sad to say you might have to do an indept check. Like start with a small peice of fabric - start with the highest bobbin tension and go to the lowest - leaving the top tension the same. Write all the findings. Then do it all again with the next top tension. Keep your 'good' findings in a little notepad in your sewing box. Then you will have it all ready for any other project. Good luck!
