Sounds like your bobbin tension is too loose.

It could be that there is a loose piece of thread, or some fluff which is obstructing the tension gauge. Try blowing around the theading area (or even run the hoover pipe near it to see if you can **** it out). I cleared mine by folding a piece of non fluffy material and rubbing gently between the tension dial and machine.

Good luck

SOURCE: Bottom (bobbin) thread suddenly loosens

Good morning,

A few steps to help you troubleshoot:

  1. Bobbin in the right direction: when looking at the bobbin in the bobbin case, pull the thread tail. The bobbin should turn clockwise.

  2. One of the biggest causes of what you describe is simply a burr/rough spot on the needleplate or hook.

    Remove the needleplate from your machine and inspect the opening for any rough spots... run your finger over the area to feel for any sharp bits. If you discover some rough spots, they can be smoothed using a fine emery cloth. Use this gently - don't want to distort needle opening, just smooth the roughness.

    If no rough spots on needleplate, open the bobbin cover and turn the handwheel towards you until the hook (little pointy part of bobbin area) is towards the bottom of the machine. Run your finger over the point to feel for any rough spots. Again - a fine emery cloth can smooth this. Be VERY careful to not flatten the hook - just a little smoothing to get rid of rough bits. Too much can ruin the hook. If you're uncomfortable with this, don't hesitate to take to your Pfaff tech and point out the rough bits.

  3. Hold the bobbin case/bobbin between finger/thumb, making sure you're not pressing on the bobbin tension (little flat metal piece on side of case). Pull the thread smoothly out of the bobbin case to see if you feel any little glitches. If you do, there may be a bit of fuzz/broken thread trapped under the bobbin tension.

    You can loosen the large setscrew on the side of the case to allow you to blow out whatever may be trapped.

  4. While your top thread may appear fine, there may be a bit of fuzz or broken thread wrapped around the take-up lever. This would interfere with the smooth feeding of the upper thread, also causing an inconsistency in the bobbin.

    Use a flashlight and look down into the top of the machine/takeup lever area. You may be able to see a bit of thread and remove it. If you can't see an offending bit, try "Flossing" your upper thread path by grasping the thread close to the spool and after it comes out of the needle. Run the thread back and forth through the thread path to see if you can dislodge anything

  5. If none of the above help, we'd suggest you have your local Pfaff authorized tech take a look. It's always a good idea to take your machine to it's respective authorized service person as they'll be the ones to know the most about it and have access to any repair parts.
Please don't hesitate to respond if you need further help or clarification.

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette

Make sure the needle has been properly installed - flat side to the back of the machine.

Thread the top thread with the presser foot up - always.

Make sure the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the correct guides.

Hold onto the thread tail at the needle and lower (by hand and not the power pedal) and raise the needle to pull the bobbin thread to the top of the machine.

Take both thread tails under the presser foot and to the back of the machine before you begin to sew.

1250 embroidery machine how do you thread for a double needle?


Do you mean the Brother Innov-is 1250D embroidery machine? Insert your twin needle. Follow the normal directions for threading the upper thread and manually place this thread through the eye of the left-hand needle from front to back. For the right hand needle, insert the extra spool pin in the bobbin winder shaft. It gets put on perpendicular to the shaft. Swing down the spool pin so that it is horizontal, pointing towards the needle bar. Place another spool of thread on this spool pin and secure it with the appropriate-sized spool cap. The thread should come off the top front of the spool. Follow the threading directions for the upper thread from step 8 (the thread guide cover) through step 10. Do not run this second thread through the needle bar thread guide. Manually thread the right hand needle eye. Make sure to use the zig-zag foot with the twin needle.

The directions for threading the machine when the twin needle installed is on page 36-37 (pages 38-39 of the PDF) of the manual. The manual is available from Brother support on the product page: http://www.brother-usa.com/support/modelinfo.aspx?R3ModelID=NV1250D . The direct link to the manual is currently: http://www.brother-usa.com/VirData/Content/en-US/HAD/Consumer/UsersManual/UM_Innov_%c3%ads%201250D_EN_2825.PDF .

I hope this helps.

I have a brother 770pe and the bobbin color is white and the thread color is green, but the embroidery comes out white. What do I do?


The surface of the embroidery is often a combination of the two threads. The bobbin thread is intertwined with the top spool thread to make the design. Easy fix: make sure the bobbin thread is the same color as the top spool thread.

Bernina 780 sews great, but thread in bobbin keeps messing up while doing embroidery,


Usually, if the thread is messing up under the fabric, it is a top thread issue. This is sometimes referred to as thread nesting or bird nesting.

Make sure you are using a brand new needle of the type specifically for embroidery. The eye needs to be large enough to easily accommodate the thread size and it needs to be a sharp needle. It may help to use a needle with a larger scarf that will protect the upper thread when piercing the fabric. If the thread is not protected sometimes it will hang up on the underside of the fabric when the needle withdraws from the fabric, causing thread loops, etc.

Remove the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. (This releases the tension disk so the thread seats completely.) Verify the thread path is correct.

Use a bobbin thread that is compatible with the embroidery thread. Check that the bobbin thread is smoothly wound on the bobbin, that the bobbin is turning the correct direction in the bobbin case, and the bobbin case tension is threaded properly.

Retest your embroidery on a small project. If you are still seeing thread bunching up under the fabric, you need to tighten the upper tension.

Have you tried oiling all moving parts. Go under presser foot under bobbin and remove all lint. Try to change the needle.

My brother pe770 is allowing bobbin thread to show on top sporadically which makes the stitching look like it is speckled with white. I have adjusted tension..cleaned and changed everything.


Shelia,

when sewing these parts of the design, (small stitches? ) load your bobbin with the same top thread. Just match the top thread color, and done! No more white bobbin thread in the topside of your designs.

My Husqvarna diamond top thread keeps breaking while doing loop embroidery. It sews a couple of stitches and then you can hear when the thread breaks. Ive tried changing the needle and bobbin, and cleaning...


Hello

Primary causes of upper thread breakage:


-- misthreading: pull all the thread off and thread again, using the manual, step by step. Read each step aloud before you do it. (sounds dumb, but helps.) (And make sure you thread the takeup lever!)

-- thread has wrapped itself around a thread guide or spool pin from one of the breaks. Take the spool off the machine before rethreading.

-- bad or damaged needle. Replace with the right size for the fabric, turned correctly (backwards needles skip stitches)

-- dirty machine, especially in the bobbin case area: review cleaning instructions and do it, using brush and vacuum only

-- bad/cheap thread: should not be slubby or break easy. Try another spool.

-- top thread tension too tight. 4 is normal for most fabrics, most stitches.

Tips;

1) do a light cleaning (brush and vacuum) every day you sit down to sew.

2) replace the needle if you hear it hit metal, if you've got a really bad thread jam, if you see it deflect as you sew (for instance, sewing over the side seam on jeans when hemming). Replace every 3-8 hours of actual stitching time anyhow.

3) buy good quality thread

4) when your machine isn't sewing right, stop; take all the thread off of/out of the machine (bobbin out of bobbin case, spool off spool pin) and give it a quick cleaning. Rethread from scratch, carefully. If that doesn't fix it, do it again, then replace needle and rethread one more time, manual in hand (yah, even if you've threaded it 8 million times before). #4 is curative about 98% of the time. The other 2% often requires professional attention.

Can not get the brother XL2600i to stitch the top thread does not catch the thread coming out of the bobbin. so it does not stitch


Make sure the needle has been properly installed - flat side to the back of the machine.

Thread the top thread with the presser foot up - always.

Make sure the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the correct guides.

Hold onto the thread tail at the needle and lower (by hand and not the power pedal) and raise the needle to pull the bobbin thread to the top of the machine.

Take both thread tails under the presser foot and to the back of the machine before you begin to sew.

I'm new to embroidering. I have BrotherSE-270 Disney. I have read through the manuel several times and am confused about the bobbin thread. Do I use tread specficaly for embrodering or will regular thread...


Your machine probably came with brother embroidery bobbin thread (one spool, white)...I used it until it was gone and did buy more embroidery bobbin thread at a regular superstore (it wasn't brother brand though)...however, I have since used regular thread and not had problems. HOWEVER, be sure it is good, quality thread - none of that $.50/spool stuff. That knots up and simply doesn't look good if it does work. Good luck!
