Sewing Machine Tension Replacement London

Many sewing machines come fitted with a tension control dial that is used to control the tension of the upper thread.

When tension is correctly set, the top thread and bobbin thread will produce uniformed stitches. When the tension is too tight, the switch will begin to pucker and break.

If your sewing machine tension is too loose, the stitches will also be very loose.

Common issues associated with sewing machine tension problems include:

• Skipped stitches
• Thread too tight
• Thread too loose
• Tension unit broken

It should be noted that unless your tension unit is actually broken, a tension problem can often result from other factors not associated with tension problems such as bent or dull needle, poor quality thread and lint or thread caught in bobbin tension discs.

i have a brother ls2125 sewing machine and whilst using today it kept tangling underneath. i`ve pulled it all apart with the bobbing and believe it`s a tension issue so tried amending that but nothing seems to work. I don`t have a huge understanding of these machines but wondering if it could be the tension spring. i`m wondering if you could give me some prices to have it looked at please to see if it`s cost effective to have it repaired. thank you.
