Brother 634D Tension Problems

3 of the 4 tension knobs are loose and go all the way around. No adjustment seems to help. I don't know if someone took apart and did not put back correctly, seller said that it worked. Is there an easy fix or am I going to have to spend $100 to get repaired at shop?

SOURCE: how to change tension from 120V to 220V

If you are sending a sewing machine which runs on 120volts to a region that has a 240volt power supply you will need to get a
power step down converter that will fit into the socket of the 220volt supply ,and will have a socket that will hold the plug of the 120volt supply going to your machine.
the converter must reduce the 240v down to 110v .

SOURCE: Thread tension for Brother XL 2230.

If you have pattern dials set correctly then I might guess that one or more sets may have been missed when the thread was being set up in the machine. most of these models show either arrows or numbers for each or way the thread needs to be routed.

SOURCE: my thread tension knob fell out of my machine and

My machine was doing the same thing its a sunstar 340-bl.Any way it was caused by aplying to much tension.To put back in remove barrel buy undoing grub srew,once removed, barrel will have one or two screws these are what hold tension shaft under tension in place.I can not advise on how much tension as i have different machine and once you destroy your spring thats it,you need a new one.To much tension causes it to untwist.

SOURCE: viking husqvarna classica 100, thread tension

I suspect you are correctly threading the machine but the timing of the needle and bobbin hook is off. When the threaded needle goes into the bobbin area, a pointed hook grabs the thread and loops it with the bobbin thread. Something is catching when the needle starts to come up that is not allowing the bobbin thread to be pulled back through the needle plate opening by the upper thread. With machine threaded and bobbin in place, have the bobbin area open if possible and watch the thread interaction when the needle goes down. To set the hook/needle timing, normally covers have to be removed. Suggest taking it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.

SOURCE: I get loops on top and/or bottom of fabric during

Top tension back to 4 and leave the bobbin tension as is.

Make sure you have a new needle for the type of fabric being sewn installed with the flat side to the back of the machine. A bent needle can sometimes go unnoticed.

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up and this will give proper tension to the stitch.

Check the manual to be sure you are threading correctly (always with the presser foot up) and that the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guides.

Take hold of the thread at the needle as you lower and raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread. Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

How do i fix the tension? i've been playing with the knobs for hours, but the threads are still too loose on the fabric.


Try decreasing your stitch width and this should help. Put your tension dials on 4. Also make sure when you thread your machine your presser foot lever is up to allow you to get your threads through your tension discs properly. To test the tension (usually set at 4 on all 4 knobs) when you thread around the knobs pull the thread on both ends like you're using dental floss around the discs under the knobs so you can feel the pull (tension) on the thread. Let me know if this works for you.

Bottom tension too loose.


Is it looping on the bottom of the fabric? If so this is a top tension issue, you need to check some things,

-make sure you thread the machine with the pressure foot up ( this allows the tension discs to open up so you can pull the fabric away from the machine with the foot up and allows the thread to get to bottom of the tension discs)

-make sure your tension settings are set to the medium setting. (Usually 4 or 5)

If this still does not help, then turn the top tension knob up (from 5 to 6,7,8,9....)

-If that still doesn't do it, your probably need the tensions reset. Let me know if you need more help.

Bobbin tension problem with kenmore model 385.16231300


If You have a drop in bobbin you will have to remove the hook and adjust the tension, however try adjusting the top tension before you remove the hook.

MegaQuilter Tension


Try at least 2 new needles first (HLX5, preferably Schmetz). If same, look for any rough edges on the needle plate and feed dog cover.
Beyond that, this does not sound like you are doing anything wrong. You should take your machine in for adjustment by an authorized technician. You should have about 1/2 to 1 full turn of the upper tension knob between too loose/ugly on back and too tight/breaking on the top.

Lower thread tension is too loose but no adjustment seems to work


From your description it appears that you have tried tension settings on the upper tension control adjustment knob without success.
Check that the bobin tension is adjusted correctly by taking out the bobin complete with the spool.
Pull the cotton thread and it should be a smooth light pressure if the tension is correct. If it is tight to pull or pulls freely then adjust the tension screw which is found on the outside of the bobbin. The screw is very small and requires a minature size screwdriver. The adjustment will only be a slight turn of the screw one way or the other to obtain the correct tension(depending if it was loose or tight).
Once this is set reinstall the bobin and tread up the machine, hopefully with the upper tension set at approx."2" the machine will sew correctly.

Hello I have misplace the manual for my Janome 234D. I bought it a few moths ago and i set all the tension right and had it going good. But my young grand daughter got to it while i was out and turned all...


Tensions all should be set at "3" for general sewing if there is no other damage or lint trapped in the tension discs.
Try "flossing" each tensioner with a piece of cloth to remove lint.
If you are still uncertain, try 4 different colours and with all set at 3 to begin, adjust to suit what you see to be loose or tight (small adjustments each time)
If the little one has removed the knobs (they just pull off towards you) and turned the white adjustment wheel beneath, you need to set until happy as above, then put the outer knob back with number 3 in the 12 o'clock position.

Wrong type of stitch/tension not working


Found a solution to my own problem.... hope this helps someone else. Make SURE the bobbin case is seated correctly! (follow the instructions carefully). Don't put the cover back on right away after you put the bobbin case in. First check and make sure it doesn't move when you turn the hand wheel.
Also, when threading the bobbin make sure the thread passes down through the tension adjusting spring of the bobbin case.
