Question about Elna 2007 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Rethread the machine from the spool to the needle.All machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up,
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.
You need to be sure your tension is working correctly. Adjust the tension to 9 and pull the thread. It should be hard to pull. adjust the tension to 2 and it should pull much easier. If it works as described, then adjust the tension to 4 and your stitch length to 2.5 and try it on some medium weight fabric.
If you are sewing on light weight fabric set your stitch length to 1.5 or 2. You may even have to reduce the tension to less than 4. You can reduce the tension until you see loops on the bottom of the fabric at which point you should tighten the tension to remove the loops.
