Thread tension

The thread tension will affect the quality of your
stitches. You may need to adjust it when you change
fabric or thread.
Memo
● Before beginning to change tension
adjustments make sure the upper thread and
bobbin are inserted correctly.
● We recommend you do a test sample on a
scrap of fabric before you start to sew.
■ Correct tension
Correct tension is important as too much or too
little tension will weaken your seams or cause
puckers on your fabric.

Note
● If the bobbin thread was incorrectly
inserted, the upper thread may be too tight.
In this case, refer to "Lower threading"
(page 11) and reinsert the bobbin.

Solution
Reduce the tension by
turning the upper tension-
control dial to a lower
number.
If the problem persists, increase the tension in
the bobbin by turning the screw clockwise
with a screwdriver.
Be sure not to turn the screw more than one
full turn. In addition, be sure to return the
screw to its original position before the next
time that the machine is used.
Note
● The bobbin thread tension has been
adjusted at the factory for general use. For
most sewing applications, no adjustment is
needed.
