All machines thread the same. TTN tension,take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test,adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

How do I set the tension on my JANOME 3434D serger?


Begin by setting all 4 dials on "3" which is the default setting on this model (often "5" on other machines). If a beginner, it would be best to thread the machine with four different colour threads according to the colours indicated on the tension dials (yellow, red, blue &green) so that it is easier to see how each thread responds as you adjust the dials. The two lower dials are for the loopers & must be adjusted until the upper & lower loops meet on the cut edge of the fabric - if below the edge: tighten the left dial & loosen the right dial (& visa-versa) just a fraction at a time. The two upper tension dials are for the needles: if too loose, loops form underneath the fabric below each needle, & if too tight the lower threads will show through to the upper side of your fabric where it is pierced by the needle. Good luck!

Stitching is too loose on the Juno Janome Serger Model 3434D


sergers the most frustrating machines. Every time you change fabrics you go through a tension adjusting phase.

First make sure you have threaded the machine in the proper order. upper looper, lower looper, then needles from right to left. Always thread any machine while the presser foot lever is in the UP position.

If you ever break a thread... you MUST pull all threads and rethread using the proper order.

Ok that's out of the way. Pull all your threads and get out several pieces of the same fabric scrap. Thread each pathway with a different color. This will help you determine which thread is giving you fits. Sew a test strip. Which thread is loose? tighten/loosen that tension. Keep doing this until you have a well balance seam. Then clip the colored threads starting with the upper looper thread, tie off to your proper color for your seam pull the thread through and up through the throat plate. proceed in this manner with lower looper, right needle, left needle. Sew a test seam.

Good luck.

The bottom side of the item I am embroidering is showing all of the top thread color. I have adjusted the tension dial and bobbin tension. Any other suggestions?


Normally you will see the about 1/3 bobbin thread and about 2/3 of the top thread on the bottom side of the fabric. If you dont see any of the bobbin thread on the back side turn the upper tension (needle tension) to a larger number.
Good Luck,

Tension dial on my sewing machine is not working


Hi, Liz. When you adjust your tension, be sure the pressure foot is down. The pressure foot needs to be up when you thread the machine so the thread will slip easily between the tension disks, but when you adjust the tension the disks have to be tight (pressure foot down).

There are other possibilities, but this is the best place to start running the problem down. Please let me know if this does the trick, ok, and if not, we can try something ele.


Happy Sewing

I need to check the tension on my Janome 534D, I think the upper and lower looper tensions are not right


Hello,
Here's a couple of solutions to try.


* Re-thread your machine
It may be threaded incorrectly. And when you re-thread it, make sure your thread goes in between your tension disks. (If you don’t know where your tension disks are, consult your machine’s manual.)

* Check your tension disks for dirt or lint
Lint or dirt between your tension disks may be keeping your tension from working properly. Clean out any you find.

I hope this helps.
