How to setup tention
Set the tension dial to the midway point between high & low number. (This is the factory standard. )
Then test on pieces of scrap fabric from your project. The tension is correct when both upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric. If the upper thread shows under the fabric, it is too loose. If the bobbin thread shows on the top of the fabric, the tension is too tight. You'll probably need to tweak the tension to get it where it should be. Tension is not static and depends greatly on the needle/thread/fabric you are using. User should get comfortable with adjusting it every time a new project is begun.
Needle not picking up bobbin thread how can I fix this ?
Try installing a brand new needle. Sometimes a bent/damaged needle will not pick up the bobbin thread.
Check that the bobbin thread is loaded properly.
If the problem continues, take it for service as the needle/hook timing can be off.
How to fix a hand wheel that doesn't move.
if its stuck physically then don't force it , have a look with a strong light in the bobbin compartment for foreign objects , ive seen needles break off and lodge in the bobbin spool locking it tight
How do you remove the faceplate on a euro pro 376
Some machines (computerized models) are made so that the outer covers cannot be removed. Are you able to remove the side cover over the needle bar? You may be able to find the problem there. Otherwise, you may need to have service performed. The thread could be hanging up in the tension guides--most likely pieces of thread.
You might try cleaning the tension guides. RAISE the presser foot, loosen the upper tension as much as possible. Then gently pull a length of unwaxed dental floss through the tension mechanism a few times. If that doesn't work, there may be something really stuck that needs a technician to resolve.
Just FYI--ALWAYS raise the presser foot before threading the upper thread. This releases the tension disks so the thread will seat properly.
