Question about Brother Sewing Machines
I have an older machine, a Brother VX-808, and I am having problems
with the bobbin thread making uneven stitches on the underneath of
the fabric. Some of the stitches look as if they are pulled out, and non are uniform in size. I tried adjusting the tension settings on the machine, but
I have misplaced the manual and am not sure of the correct settings.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Well you're right it's a tension problem.
Sounds like there is little or no tension on the top thread.
You probably have thread stuck in your tension discs. If so, set the tension at zero, open the discs with a small screw driver and blow between them. Sometimes you have to dig it out with tweezers.
Then reset clockwise untill you can feel the tension on the thread when you pull through it. It should be about the same as pulling a mug of tee along a table. (not specific I know - but you get the idea - and I love the tea!)
Hope this helps you.
