I had the same problem with my old machine. The problem was actually the bobbin casing. And to fix it you really need to have the machine fixed by a professional. I think it costs between 20-40 dollars but you can find a sewing machine repair place in your phone book and call and ask. Smiley

I don't own one of those, but I know when I've had problems with my tension it was usually because of the top thread. Actually...I'm not even sure if the bobbin on my machine has a tension screw. I've never found one. But yeah...try playing around with the top thread. It might need to be cleaned and greased up if you haven't done that yet...if there's lint that could get caught up in the thread and cause problems. Other than that I don't really know. Maybe contact the company...
