Found this for a 4526 - it could be very similar to your machine.

http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Singer_Sewing_Machine_Threading/singer_4526_4528_4530_threading.htm

there is also good general machine help on www.sewing.about.com which gives generic threading help, trouble shooting etc.

Tension is usually controlled by a dial on the top thread, and a little screw on the bobbin case on the bottom thread. However, if you adjust either, just small increments is best to avoid making things worse. Top tension usually set to 5 or middle number and bottom tension shouldn't often need touching.

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
or
Make Model threading
(most machines thread similarly so even if you don't find your specific model, the instructions would be helpful)

https://www.manualslib.com/products/Singer-L47-4062252.html


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.)

Assembly instructions for Singer Merritt 4525


The service manual for that machine can probably show you, and I would make sure and get the parts list as well. I just checked Sewing Parts Online, and it was not listed, but if you send an email to them (they give the address at the top of the page), they can and will purchase it for you. Usually takes about 2 weeks. However, I just saw a used one in nice shape on eBay for $72.99 and $27 shipping in the original box, so you might consider just buying another one. I also noticed that a new tension assembly is being sold for $18.95 including shipping, and if you write to them, they may include replacement instructions. Just do a search on Singer 4525 on ebay--they have all kinds of bobbins, foot pedals, and parts for it.

Singer 5040c i just bought this machine it was working fine but i thought i should clean it after cleaning all of a sudden the bottom thread is looping up all over and the tension is not right. When I...


Do you have your manual? Because it is almost always the top threading, either tangled thread or a bent or dull needle causing the problem. You can download your manual at www.singerco.com for free and enlarge the detail of the diagrams for threading. I just hope that it is something simple and not your timing because that is not a do it yourself job, unfortunately. You can also call Singer customer service at 1-800-4singer. and get their advice. Good luck.

Bobbin thread


Not completely sure on your model but you have to adjust (loosen) the tension on the top thread to match the tension on the bottom thread. Usually there is a wheel on the upper right of the machine. the tension adjust is the knob inside that wheel. Turn counter clockwise about 1/8 turn. Then try and repeat until it works. Check owners manual for top thread tension adjustment if needed.

Good luck.

Please rate me.

Lost manual. how to thread?


all machines thread the same. TTN tension,take up, needle.
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.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.
