How to thread tension on my L47 singer sewing machine

Threading and tension are two different things.

You can search for a manual:
Make Model manual
Make Model threading
(most machines thread similarly so even if you don't find your specific model, the instructions would be helpful)

When threading, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat completely in the tension disk.

For tension, generally start with the tension set at the midway point. Tension is correct when the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric. If the bobbin thread is showing on the fabric top, loosen the top tension. If the top thread is showing on the underside of the fabric, tighten the top tension. Do not adjust the bobbin tension until it has been determined that the top tension does not make the adjustments needed. (Bobbin tension is sensitive--a little change makes a big affect so you will need to know how to reverse any changes you make.)

On my Singer 6235 sewing machine, needle will not pick up bobbin thread. Any suggestions to fix the problem?

Doesn't pick up bobbin thread
1. The bobbin may be in backwards.
2. The bobbin thread & top thread need to be pulled to the back before starting the stitching
3. You need a ballpoint rather than universal needle to sew on t-shirt knits.
4. the needle is in the machine backwards
5. Make sure the needle is the correct one for the fabric being sewed
6. Needle inserted wrong in the needle holder
7. Warped needle
8. Warped bobbin
9. Also could be a timing problem

I want to know how to fill the bobbin on my my singer model 6235

I can do better than that--I can tell you where to get the user's manual, and I just checked and it's available as a free download. Go to the Singer Sewing Machine site, and select Support and Resources at the Top, then Instructions Manual and type in your model number, and it's right there.

Singer 6235 - needle not grabbing bobbin thread

Make sure of 4 things. One, that the correct needle length and diameter is being use in the machine. Second, make sure you are turning the flywheel the correct direction and third, and fourth, that you have the Bobbin inserted correctly and spinning in the right direction. when picking up bobbin thread.

Cant remember how to load my bobbin on my singer 6235 machine

Go to and download a free manual for your machine. Look under support and enter 6235. It is nice because you can save it plus enlarge the diagrams in the manual. Nice to have a manual on your computer that you cannot misplace, LOL. We all get forgetful, I know I do.
