Re: Tension problems with Old MC9000

Jim Stutsman

It sounds like there may be debris lodged between the tension discs, so they cannot close properly. Take a strip of scrap fabric (Denim is especially good for this.), raise the presser foot, fold the scrap in half, and "floss" the tension with the folded edge. That will usually work out whatever is in there. Only once did I have to disassemble a machine to fix this problem. In that case the sticky "dot" from the label on the spool had ridden down the thread and attached it self to a disc. Good luck!
