Could you at least identify the problem for me? if possible, i would also appreciate an explanation of how to solve the problem.

I double checked on my machine because you can actually see the tension disc move while you move the dial. Flip the bobbin casing over, and let the thread rest on the right side of the horn.

The tension discs squeeze the thread as it passes between them, while the tension regulator controls the amount of pressure on the discs.

But if so, isn’t that the opposite? based on your tug-of-war illustration, aren’t you supposed to decrease your number to loosen top tension and increase your number to tighten top tension? so much to remember!! thanks for any guidance! There is such a thing as thread that’s been sitting in a place that’s too damp or too hot. Unwind about 18″ or so of thread and bring it around the backside of the bobbin winder tension disc, wind it around the tension disc one time. Select a bobbin that works specifically with your machine. Push the bobbin casing into the bobbin housing, so the tip of the horn lines up with the notch in the shuttle hook cover.
