How do I adjust an alternate bobbin case(with pink marking or no marking) using an embroidery pattern?

A bobbin case with a green marking has been installed in this machine, with an alternate bobbin case (with pink marking or no marking) provided as an accessory.
When using the embroidery bobbin thread provided, please be sure to choose the green marked bobbin case when performing utility stitch sewing and embroidery functions.
When in the embroidery function mode, the alternate bobbin case (with pink marking or no marking) should be selected when substitute embroidery bobbin threads (other than what is accompanied with your machine) are being used.
The alternate bobbin case (with pink marking or no marking) can be easily adjusted when bobbin tension changes are required to accommodate different bobbin threads.

    Be sure to check if a bobbin is installed correctly before you embroider the pattern.
    If you can only see the bobbin thread on both sides of fabric as shown in the left picture, the bobbin is not installed correctly.
    For details, refer to "Correctly installing a bobbin

    • When adjusting the alternate bobbin case, be sure to remove the bobbin from the alternate bobbin case.
    • DO NOT adjust the position of the Phillips (+) screw on the alternate bobbin case as this may result in damage to the bobbin case, rendering it unusable.
    • If the slotted-head screw (-) is difficult to turn, do not use force.
      Turning the screw too much or providing force in either (rotational) direction may cause damage to the bobbin case.
      Should damage occur, the bobbin case may not maintain proper tension.

If this occurs, turn the slotted-head screw (-) counterclockwise, being careful not to over-tighten the screw, approximately 30-45 degrees to decrease bobbin tension.

 

 

 

 

After adjusting an alternate bobbin case, make trial sewing to check thread tension.
If the thread tension is still incorrect, repeat the Procedure 5 until you can obtain a correct thread tension.
