Question about Singer 2517 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have tried to adjust the tension on my machine to avoid bunching but I have had no luck. It is set on the highest setting and changing the number of stitches doesn't seem to help either. My last attempt at fixing it was a disaster. All the thread from the bobbin is now bunched underneath and is difficult to get out without leaving remnants.
According to everything I've researched, when this happens it's because there is no tension. Check & make sure it's threaded properly. If it's still bunching underneath, then there may be something wrong inside the machine - even though you adjust the tension, it may not really be happening inside. You'll have to take it apart or service it.
