SOURCE: Top tension adjustment

Believe it or not, most computerized machines have an automatic tension. This works well providing, the thread is thru the tension wheel setup.
But for further reference,
loops on the bottom-- problem on the top.

Top tension back to 4 and leave the bobbin tension as is.

Make sure you have a new needle for the type of fabric being sewn installed with the flat side to the back of the machine. A bent needle can sometimes go unnoticed.

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up and this will give proper tension to the stitch.

Check the manual to be sure you are threading correctly (always with the presser foot up) and that the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guides.

Take hold of the thread at the needle as you lower and raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread. Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Set the tension control at mid-range and raise the presser foot.

Make sure the thread is not caught on the spool cap or wrapped around the spool pin.

If the problem is not at the spool, and you still cannot get the thread though with the presser foot up - there may be an internal jam.

Open the tension (set at zero), and with the presser foot up, try to pull through a heavier thread - don't tug, you just want to "floss".

If you can't pull the thread though by hand, you will need to take the machine in for service.

If you try to open the enclosed threading area, you may not get everything back as it should be and it will still need to go into the shop.

Typically the number 4 works well, turn it up to 7 or eight and see if that helps. If there is no change there may be thread or debris inside the tension keeping it from working. You could take a pipe cleaner and gently working it back and forth in the tension to see if anything pulls out. good Luck!

Does anyone have a Brother Super Galaxie 3000 needle plate they no longer require or would like to sell. Part Number is XA9844 which is written under the needle plate.

Search for the part on the internet. There are sewing machine parts vendors or sometimes the part will be available on auction sites, ie eBay. You can also look for internet groups who sell sewing machines, parts, accessories, etc.

When the bottom stitches are loopy it is the top tension which is wrong. I suspect that it is not threaded correctly for it to be this bad. If you have a tension dial make sure that the thread is properly between the disk. Try the top tension on 4-that is an "average" normal setting. Gradually turn it up as needed. A good way to test tension is to use 2 contrasting colours-red and white are good. You will see at a glance where the problem lies and how well you are correcting it with adjustments. You should barely see a trace of the top colour coming through. Rethread the machine top and bottom with 2 colours-set dial to no 4 and go from there.
