How do I install a tension knob on a brother VX710 sewing machine? I am concerned about how much I should tighten the screw that holds the knob in place inside the machine. Is it supposed to be tight or loose?

Brother jx2517sewing machine the tension dial knob came off want a step by step how to put it back on


You should have a book for your machine with detailed diagrams. If you need a book, you can find it online. Should be free to copy and print.
Otherwise, all machines are the same, and usually when the knob comes off, behind it there are two discs that may have come off too. Replace the discs so that the slight curve - so the two scoop toward each other in the middle. Put them on the screw, followed by the tension knob. Tighten until you have contact with discs. (Or re-set to number you think you used last.) Re-thread the machine, both top and bottom. When you pull both threads, together, one thru needle, and the other under lifted feeddog foot you should feel near equal tension on both. Now sew a few stitches on some doubled piece of fabric. Remove, leaving threads. It should look the same on both sides. Any machine book will show you what that looks like.
Machines are pretty durable, and forgiving. You cannot mess anything up by trying. They do, however, want to be threaded correctly to sew happliy. Very often, a machine that has not been used or cleaned for years - the bottom thread tension will get 'off.' Easy to check - remove bottom assembly. Hold it by the thread. If the assembly slides down, it is too loose. If shaking it will not get it to slide, then it's too tight.

The Balance Wheel and the Clutch Release knob will not tighten together again after filling a bobbin. How do I fix this?


THERE IS A SMALL SCREW AT THE MIDDLE KNOB ON THE HAND WHEEL THAT YOU NEED TO LOOSEN. AFTER THAT TIGHTEN THE HAND WHEEL KNOB JUST AS YOU WOULD WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO SEW. NOW, TIGHTEN THE SMALL SCREW. YOUR MACHINE SHOULD BE OK FOR SEWING AND YOUR BOBBIN WINDING.

Pull the plastic bobbin shuttle out and look for a small screw tighten that.

Are you sure you need to do this? Most tension issues can be handled with upper tension.

Where is the bobbin tension at for brother


The screw on the bobbin case adjusts the tension. Turn it to the right to loosen the tension and to the left to tighten the tension.

How do you tighten the tension for the thread?


Top tension on most machine is adjusted by turning a tension knob in front of two discs this holds the thread tight. bottom tension is uasually adjusted by turning a very small screw on the bobbin case were the thread comes out from under.

Hi,
Open the end where the light is, look for a set screw at the point where the tension assemly enters machine. try tightening that. If that doesnt work, post a reply comment and I will tell you where to go next.
