How do I set bobbin tension?


Generally bobbin tension is the last thing to try to adjust on your machine. Most sewists adjust the bobbin tension ONLY if they are using very lightweight or very heavyweight thread in the bobbin. Most sewists will advise to make all possible adjustments to the top tension before tackling the bobbin tension to resolve issues.

This is a parts identification question. My manual does not identify a part just above the tension part on the top of the machine left edge which is round in appearance about a little smaller than a dime...


Possibilities are:

foot pressure adjustment
tension dial adjustment
stitch elongation

If you can already identify the tension adjustment dial and this device is above the pressure foot, then I would gess it is the first one, foot pressure adjustment.

Many models don't have this but it was standard for many years on all machines, allowing you to control the pressure of the foot onto the needle plate, something you need to vary if you are sewing very heavy coatings or very fine silks, sometimes you just need to finesse the pressure yourself.

I have axr65.have lost my manual,having tension problems.stitches loose and loopy.need help immediately.


Let me give you instructions for adjusting the tension on anysewing machine. Be sure to have a scrap piece of the fabric you are using andthread the top of the machine with a different color of thread than thebobbin-it'll make it easier to see what's going on. Thread your machine with the presser foot UP. The disks that control the tension (threadgoes 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 diskswon't move. Start at the middle setting, 3. Go up to tighten, decrease toloosen. 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 andbobbin thread so you can easily see what changes to the tension do to yourstitches. Now use a straight stitch a sew 3 or so inches. Take a lookat the top and bottom of the fabric. You don't want to see any (or at least notmuch) 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 causingpuckering, then you need to loosen you're top tension. For the most part, youreally don't want to touch your bobbin tension-leave that to a repairtechnician. The factory setting shouldn't be touched except by someone whoreally knows what they're doing. Keep sewing a few inches at a time until you have the resultsyou want. Now you're tension is where you need it!

How do i adjust the bobbin tension? white 935


There is an adjustment screw on the bobbin holder. Tighten if the tension is too loose, or loosen if too tight, but do not completely unscrew and lose the adjustment screw. I also suggest if you don't have a manual that you download one from: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html. Enter the number "935"

How to adjust tension on Toyota RS 2000 sewing machine (CB series


Hi
I found a free manual and parts for my Toyota 9090 on this site. http://www.aisin.fr/index3.php?language=en
The only problem is that the manual is in French but some are also available in English. I found it useful for the diagrams etc.
Try the online guides as well as they give help on adjusting tension, replacing bobbins and needles etc.

Can't balance top/bottom thread tension-model 158.Bottom thread is a straight line. Have increased top tension to the stop. No effect.Have reduced bobbin tension until bobbin and case fall freely when held...


I disassembled the top thread tension controller consisting of 12-13 pieces, including 2 springs. Since they all fell out on the table I spent about 2 hours learning the proper stacking order on the central shaft.
With a combination of reasoning based on each unique piece shape and trial and error I put it back together, adjusted top and bottom tensions according to the instruction booklet for the machine, tested some stitching, made final adjustments and all worked well.
I don't know what was changed in the process but it worked.

Hello I have misplace the manual for my Janome 234D. I bought it a few moths ago and i set all the tension right and had it going good. But my young grand daughter got to it while i was out and turned all...


Tensions all should be set at "3" for general sewing if there is no other damage or lint trapped in the tension discs.
Try "flossing" each tensioner with a piece of cloth to remove lint.
If you are still uncertain, try 4 different colours and with all set at 3 to begin, adjust to suit what you see to be loose or tight (small adjustments each time)
If the little one has removed the knobs (they just pull off towards you) and turned the white adjustment wheel beneath, you need to set until happy as above, then put the outer knob back with number 3 in the 12 o'clock position.

Kenmore Model 385.16231300


I discovered the same problem. What I figured out (after having the machine "repaired" several times) is that it seems as if the bobbin type may be the suspect. I started looking closely and it seems as if I have 2 different types of bobbins. So, I tried both types. Since I don't know the bobbin number(s), you will have to put up with my description .... the bobbin that is flat, top & bottom, seems to bunch up. The bobbin "bounces" when I sew. The bobbins that are rounded on the top and bottom don't seem to "bounce" and it doesn't bunch up the lower thread. Now, I have read my manual front to back and it does not say what bobbin type or number to use. So, if anyone knows, it would be a great help. I am assuming the correct bobbin is the "class 66" bobbin. Does anyone know for sure?
