My daughter has my MIL's 201 singer and we are having trouble with the upper thread tension. I have printed out the pages from the manual but I don't really understand how to redo the tension setting. The tension is too tight but when we try to turn the nob left, the dial will not move. It sits with "0" right in the center of of the indicator.
If anyone owns a 201 model and has resolved a similar problem, I would certainly appreciate your help. Of course, our antique experts advice is always welcomed.
I remember my MIL sewing with this machine and the tension was always an issue and every time the Singer man was in town he was there doing adjustments. I know there has been lots adjustments done which never seemed to resolve the problem. My antiques are all models 15-91s so I know little about these machines, but I will keep my personal opinion of this one for myself!
