You'll need a very small Allen Wrench, open the door where the light is, see the tiny whole near the assembly? unscrew and pull the entire assembly out. put the new assembly in and tighten.

What can I do to wind my bobbin tighter


Make certain you are passing the thread through the tension for the bobbin winder when setting up to wind the bobbin. Check that tension assembly for anything that could be stuck in it, preventing the assembly from putting tension on your thread, such as another thread. Wiggle the disc on the assembly to make sure it isn't stuck. If none of that works, disassemble that assembly from the top of the machine (NOT the tension you use when threading to sew!) and see if the spring inside is broken. If it is, replace the spring if you can get it, or the whole assembly if you cannot.

My bobbin keeps bunching up. I've changed the tension to 2, taken the bobbin case out, used a different bobbin....I don't know what to do. My machine is a month old and I've used it, maybe 4...


Put the tension back up to about 5. Rethread the machine entirely, and make sure you have the pressure foot in the up position when you rethread. If your getting bunching on the bottom, it's probably your top thread that's bunching up. After you rethread, put a small piece of fabric under the pressure foot, lower the pressure foot, and turn the handwheel in the forward direction and watch the thread as it comes around the bobbin case. If it goes around smoothly, try it with the foot control. If it hangs up as it goes around the bobbin case, you might have a burr on the black plastic bobbin case. Take it out, check for any burrs, sand them down, and try again.

I need to know how to thread my tcm sewing machine as i have no instructions as it was given to me thank you


I do not know this model but why don't you visit www.about.sewing.com, there is good general threading information there as well as care and maintenance tips for sewing machines. Older machines need oiling, many modern ones have nylon parts or oiling wicks so not required so often. If you can see red marks on parts of the machine, these are usually oiling spots.

sewing machines are usually horizontal top loading bobbins where the bobbin goes into a bobbin holder and the thread gets clicked into a tension spring.

Or vertical front loading bobbins inside a removable bobbin case with a tension spring on the outside of the bobbin case.

Top threading up is usually through a number of eyelets, through a tension device of some sort, then down to the needle.

Remember, the scarf (cut out) of the needle should face to the back of the machine. Most domestic sewing machines use 130/704H needle system and the needle has a flat shank which goes to the back in the needle holder so you get this right.

You can also try www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewusa.com, both list some instruction manuals and threading diagrams for some makes and models.

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.

No tension on bobbin thread


You might remove the bobbin assembly looking for a broken tension spring (maybe a piece of it lying in the bottom the bobbin case.

Replace the needle thread tension dial


If the entire assembly has fallen out you will find if you remove the top left hand cover that there is a small screw in the casting where the tension assembly goes, replace the tension body to the correct position and tighten the little screw.
