My Singer 6106 thread tension knob is just falling out of the machine. There doesn't seem to be anything that holds it in place. Does anyone know how to fix this?
The threads on the knob or the metal piece it screws onto are stripped. You need new parts.

I have a Singer 9217. The tension has given me issues. I have taken it apart and brushed out dust and thread pieces. I've checked adjustments, but my tension lever feels loose. I need to remove the plastic casing around the lever, so my husband can get behind it to do repair, but I can't figure out how to remove it.
Singer has a guide for this machine. I would suggest that you visit Singer online and download the manual for your machine. On the site if you are still having issues, contact Singer direct. A service technician is always there to help you.
