Globe Cub 7 sewing machine

The stitches my sewing machine is producing are too large on the bottom making me think the bottom tension is out ... because I have lost the manual and it is an old machine I'm not sure which way to turn the screw down the bottom to tighten - does anyone know which way to turn the screw?

Hi Quinny1420...If you are certain that it is a tension issue, first ensure that your upper threading is correctly inserted/passing through the upper tension discs, and the general upper tension starting point is between 3.5 and 5.5. Increase the upper tension to pull up loose stitching on the bottom. Last resort is to alter your bobbin tension. Clockwise to increase, and counter-clockwise to decrease. Turns should only be made in 1/5 increments between test sews.....Please update your post of your progress...good luck my friend

My cotton keeps breaking

You may not have it threaded properly. See if the following is your machine.

How to thread my Cub 3 sewing machine

There are some videos in the link. If the bottom stitch isn't locking in, that sounds indicative of either the bobbin case is not in properly or the bobbin isn't threaded correctly. Manuals for this model are only available for a fee. This is the second Frister and Rossman machine I have seen today, and never seen them on here in the last 12 years!

My Necchi sewing machine. I can’t seem to adjust the stitch length

Doing a google search for the brand plus model number for a user guide or YouTube videos might find what you are looking for. That it is a Necchi doesn't supply the model number and of course models differ. On a 537L model, the large knob on the right side about halfway between the top and bottom of the machine adjusts stitch length. The numbers may range from 0 to 5 with 0 meaning no length and 5 being the largest length. Tension, stitch length and stitch width are all controlled by small dials on the front of the Necchi machine. If your stitch length is set to 0, the sewing machine will not feed the fabric. Incorrect tension will cause poor stitch quality. You must consult you machine's user manual to know how to adjust the tension as the procedure differs among machines. Here is a general guide, however:

Bottom stitch is gathering, but I think the machine is not threaded correctly

Hi there,
I would start by re winding your bobbin and making sure that it is done though all the correct tension loops. A bobbin that is wound to tight or loose can cause all sorts of problems. If that has been done then completely rethread the machine from scratch. Now go through and check all your tensions, it sounds like the bobbin tension is too loose and your stitch tension is too tight. Adjust and try again.
Good luck

The thread for the top needle just sews and loops onto the lower thread

I think you are saying that there is a loop showing on the bottom of the lower thread stitch. If the lower stitch looks correct and not bunching, you will need to change the tension on the upper stitch. Make sure that your threads are firmly inserted within the discs also before adjusting the tension. It doesn't take much to change the tension so take it slowly.

My tension is very loose when I do freemotion quilting. It is fine on the top, but the bottom gets tangled. It sews fine when I have the walking foot on, but when I put on the different plate for...

Hi Leann: Think about how a sewing machine works. Now think about what kind of difference an 1/8th of an inch distance would make. Yes. You will need to adjust your top tension when you do free motion work. Keep in mind that plate is not just stopping your feed dogs from working... it's holding your materials that far away from the bed of the machine... so when the thread makes a loop and tightens for the stitch it has the extra 1/8th of an inch to make up for... if the tension isn't right... you got loops. There are no "specific" settings for tensions... you learn by doing you stitch a few stitches on like materials and tighten until you see a good stitch.

I cannot get the tension right on my 2600 Brother machine. I am stitching in the ditch with three layers of material. Can you please help?

Make sure you have the right size needle...not to small. Then do a simple seam through three layers (doesn't need to be a seam just sewing through 3 layers of scrap) using a wide zig zag stitch. Examine the stitch looking at both sides. Do they look even, identical?

Think in opposites, ie the bottom thread tension affects the stitch on the top side and the thread tension on top affects the stitch on the bottom side. If one side is loopy then the opposite side tension is too loose (or, sometimes that side's tension is too tight). Adjust until both sides are identical looking. Then try stitching in the ditch like you wanted to.
