Question about Sewing Machines
Tighten the top tension. To check the bobbin tension take the bobbin out and dangle it by the thread like you would hold a yo yo. A gentle flick of the wrist should cause the bobbin to drop down some but not just spin out to the floor, ie there should be some tension. If it hits the floor it is too loose. But if it doesn't release, fall, some it is too tight.
When you stitch a broad zig zag if the tension is correct it will look identical on the top as it does on the bottom. If it is smaller on the top then the bobbin is too tight. If it is smaller on the bottom than the top tension is too tight etc.
