    Wow! Ladies you have some beautiful New Homes!! It appears I am missing a piece of the tension. Not sure what it does exactly...puts tension on the thread obviously...and it also appears that my top plate is bent. Sewww....anyone know where I can find a new used one? I might be able to bend the plate I have back into shape, but will need the bottom piece. My daughter will be disappointed, cuz she was told this machine needed only the belt to run. LOL! That's Craigslist for ya!
    Phyllis, thank you so much for the threading picture! That made everything so clear! You are so smart to use that heavy turquoise thread so I could see it well.
    Now to find parts!
    Thank you all for your help!

    Phyllis nm,

    Your pics of the New Home look great. I think the machine isn't threaded right, the thread take up spring is the only thing I see wrong. The thread is suppose to be behind the wire hoop and you take a loop between the wires and pull it in front of the take up spring. HTH's

    Ok I am a little confused! It seems we all have a different New Home tension set up, threading set up! Here is my New Home T No 3 and the top tension looks just like Randa's! Only one tension plate, not two! But Randa, your tension plate is bent as Miz Johnny noticed! I'm sorry I don't have a better picture of the front -close up - but, mine threads differently than any of yours!

    Miz Johnny, I know I am easily confused, but you took the tension plate off in the second picture?

    Ok, I am awake now. You are all talking about the little release attachment thingy on the tension plate that is missing on Randa's New Home?

    Randa, I am not so sure you are missing anything on your tension plate. Look at the Smithsonian photo of the New Home tension. It shows a tension plate exactly like yours. There is no second part in that photo, only the flat plate on top. I am thinking because your machine is older than the rest of ours, it didn't have that fancy release thingy? Anyway, on all the photo's on the Light Running New Home Sewing Machine manual from the Smithsonian, there is no release part of the tension. Look at page 12 and 13 of the manual, the tension plate in identical to yours.

    Phyllis that is a great photo with the blue yarn/thread showing the threading of a New Home, but you are not threaded correctly either. Your thread has to go back of the staple thread guide too.
