Jc penny model 1710 sewing machine, the stitching isnt tight

Answers :

You do not say if it is the top stitches or the bottom stitches for the bottom tension, check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.
\012For the top stitch, tighten up on the tension adjustment on the front of the machine which looks something like this:-

My Singer Sewing machine (model 6215) is now only sewing in reverse. After pressing the backstitch button, the button seemed to stick in the backstitch position. I was finally able to pull the button out but my machine continues to only stitch backwards. What do I do now?

It's stuck inside. Open it up so you can see inside the bottom, look for the feed dog mechanism and you'll find where length of step is varied, this is where the reversing takes place too. Tapping gently and oiling will free it up.lp ... Vacuums

Singer 327 lower bobbin thread is wild and loopy after I sew...top stitch fine. Just changed to a large thread spool with the heavy remote base and crook to carry thread to machine and wonder if this changed tension (set at 4 and correctly threaded)? It had been working fine in zigzag but I also went back to reg foot and set stitch width at 0, center needle set. Thanks for your input and help. Deanna

I bought a Tacsew T8700 High Speed Stright Stitch and I should have paid more attention to the 'High Speed'! The motor that came with this industrial machine is a Tacsew Clutch Motor model: RM1878-1H. It is way too fast when starting out and usually breaks the thread. The local company I bought it from told me there was not a user manual for the machine or the motor :P.

I have a model 1315 sears sewing machine and have a new walking foot that doesn't seem to fit or allow me to stitch.......is there a fix? The walking foot is a kenmore brand and we thought it would fit all kenmores?

I am sure that you realize that it has to be for a low shank machine and that you have to take off the presser foot and use the screw to clamp the walking foot on, and the fingers must be on the take up lever screw. Be sure to check the shank size. ... Vacuums
