The sewing machine model is ce 5000PRW. the upper stitches are too tight and loops coming on the lower side. I tried all the 9 numbers of the tension control but either the upper or the lower stitches are not correct. When I'm putting lower numbers the lower stitches are too loose and when I put the higher number in the tension control the upper stitches are too tight. I tried all the types of needles cleaned the area under bobbin case and checked all the numbers of tension control system but still not able to get the correct stitch. my machine is about 4 months old and from the day I bought it I've to waste at least one hour to set the correct stitch for every new fabric. It's irretating and now I'm not able to stitch at all. Please help as soon as possible.

It sounds as though the problem is with the tension in the bobbin. Check to make sure the thread is pulled through the tensioner on the bobbin case, if it is check and adjust the tension on the case.

My brother-project runway-CE-5000PRW is giving me an “F4” (flashing sign) and will not work. What is the problem? I don’t see it in the handbook.

Make Model error code

if you can't locate any information, sometimes the F code refers to an issue that needs to be addressed by a qualified technician.
