When the machine is threaded, raise the presser foot. The tension disks will release when the presser foot is up. If the thread is hard to pull with the pressed foot down it should be working. If not, there might be lint or something caught between the tension disks.

How do I add a hoop size to my designer diamond deluxe? I added it to the 5D.

The hoop size will automatically appear on your Designer Diamond Deluxe for selection as the embroidery arm is attached and the design is chosen.
If the correct hoop size is not appearing at this time, your machine may require updating to include this new hoop size.

Tension releases randomly on viking designer diamond

Check for loose threads in tension disks. If none, tension disks will probably need to be replaced. This part has a 5 year warranty if you are the original purchaser and purchased from an authorized husqvarna viking dealer.

Sewing machine top tension discs very loose

repairing it yourself, without any training or mechanical skills could be problematic, given that you have already rejected 'new part' as a solution.

I have a Pfaff 7550 that has tension problems. The bobbin doesn't seem to be coming through and the top thread is all loose and loopy. I have tried everything I know and still it is not fixed....h

How are you threading the machine? Is it with the foot in the up position? If you "floss" your upper tension discs with some sturdy fairly rough fabrick like linen. The disc sometimes get clogged up with lint, thread, wax from the tread... and prevent them from providing proper tension.

good luck.

Tension discs/ shredding needle thread

Your knee pad raises the presser foot and in turn releases the disc tension. The mechanism for this is in the front of the machine. If you can remove a nose piece this will be a lot easier to see,
There is a pin that pushes the tension discs open and quite often this has been removed or adjusted so a to not release tension when the presser foot is raised {more likely if this was a production machine} If someone took the tension control apart to accomplish this that my guess as to question 2.
The best part about Consew is the parts are common and the whole tension assembly isn't expensive. You can find service manuals on their website (see link)

Tension disc assembly - sewing machine

Sorry but there is no way to explain how to re-assemble the tension mech on here, you need to be actually shown or have someone do it for you. It is very fiddly and needs to be exact, can I suggest you get in touch with a sewing machine tech who(at cost) will sort you out.
Sorry I cannot be of any further help.
