I have a badass-sewing/embroiderymachine that I got for half price and I'm thrilled!

But: I have a problem with the thread-tension (don't know if thats the proper word for it in english). the machine is supposed to automatically set the tension, but its always too loose. I have guarantee and all, so they repair it for free, but they can't seem to find out whats wrong.  I'ts really annoying to have had a great sewingmachine for months and still not be able to use it to make great things!

so: does any of you people recognise it? have you had similar problems? do you think the repairingpeople will ever fix it?

When you thread the machine are is the presser foot up?  If not, you are bypassing the tension disks and that would certainly do it...then when you take it in it is perfect...

I have this machine and I love it.  Keeping the presser foot up while threading is very important as paroper said - I did it once the other way and the tension was very loose.

thanks for the advice!

It turns out that I used an uneven thread. And since the tension is automatic, it changed everytime the thread changed, and that made everything uneven.

So: don't use cheap thread from IKEA!

I'm glad the problem was so easy to solve, but extremely annoyed it took so long to figure out... I feel sort of stupid and stingy Smiley
