Tension Issues on Forte



  • Cheryl Duncan



    The number for the tension is different for every machine.  Try wrapping your thread around the tension disks a second time.  Occasionally the thread will come out of the tension disks and you will get the eyelashing.  If it is wrapped around it cannot come out.  Make sure you set your bobbin tension first and then adjust your top tension. 

    If you are still having issues please contact your local retailer where you purchased your machine or call our Education team at 1-877-697-8458, M-F, 9-5.  We would love to help you.


    Best regards,

    Mine says 10 all the time even after I adjust the top tension. I tried to do the reset as outlined in the manual and it still says 10.
