Question about Sewing Machines
There is probably a thread broken off inside the tension discs.To remove it ,adjust the tension knob to 0 tension, and raise the presser foot. Spread the tension discs a part with a small screwdriver and blow some canned or compressed air through the discs.You should see some thread or lint come out of it.
Rethread the machine,adjust the tension back to 5 and test the tension by pulling on the thread near the take up lever. When the foot is up there should be almost no tension. When the foot is down you should have tension.
