Stop for Safety Purposes ?

When sewing it seems the bobbin thread tangles but I can't find anything caught and then I get a message that reads Stop for Safety Purposes. I can't find any diagnostics in my manual; what do you suggest

    Thanks so much, I will check this out; however, now the machine won't sew more than a stitch. I'm off to repair shop and will let you know the solution.

I have had this happen to me many times. It really does feel as though the problem is in the bobbin, but it's not. After much aggrivation I took it into the repair shop and found out the thred was comming unhooked on the top not in the bobbin. It still happens all the time but I know what it is now so I just rethred the top.

You receive the error message E6 when the motor locked up because thread is tangled or the machine is seizing up.

Remove the tangled thread, it it still happens that means your machine is seizing and requires service.

My 6003 Elna machine stop and says stop for safety purposes How do I get it unlock from that It wont do anything


This is usually what happens if the bobbin case gets dislodged, its just held in place by a magnet but if you have a jam up, often gets moved out of position. Remove top metal plate, take out bobbin, and have a look at the bobbin case, should be two metal markers or red dotsmfront side that align. Lift the case out by grasping edge and lifting up and towards you, clean underneath with the little brush, remove any jammed up threads, then return case to position, aligning the marks.

When i start to sew on my Janome sewing machine model Sewist 525S it does a couple of stitches on any stitch type then bangs then sews then bangs then stops. I look to see the problem and the bobbin and...


There has to be a problem in your threading or your needle. You may have the needle inserted backwards, flat side has to face rear or the needle is bent. Totally unthread your machine and make sure that there are no tangles and that it feeding the right way. Watch how they show your for threading and winding the bobbin, plus threading the bobbin. Good luck, but I truly think it is in your threading.

Bobbin thread tangling up


are you doing embroidery? if so turn off jump stitch cutting if possible. is the machine threaded correctly (pull needle thread out of machine and thread again with presser foot raised.

check for foreign matter in needle tension assembly. ensure there is sufficient needle thread tension.

the thread you see caught up underneath the fabric will be needle thread and indicates insufficient needle thread tension or something preventing the needle thread from being pulled up into the fabric (maybe a damaged bobbin case, or bobbin case position finger, or damaged needle plate hole).

goodluck,
scott

Take out your bobbin case and examine it for nicks, scratches and or rough spots.If the problem is not too bad it may be possible to buff out the bad spot with an emery stick or emery cloth. If that isn't possible or it makes too much noise after you buff it you will have to replace it. Look especially along the edges and underneath.

Thread caught up around bobbin!


To address my needle thread tangling (horribly) in the bobbin compartment, I rethreaded the bobbin. I cleaned the bobbin and the feeder feet, I changed the bobbin and the thread. I changed the tension on the needle thread and the bobbin thread. NO FIX! Then, I changed the needle - the problem was fixed instantly. I sewed awhile and then put the original needle back in. No problem. I think perhaps that the problem is being caused by the needle getting out of alignment somehow during sewing. If you are having the same issue, try it. It can't hurt!

A horrible tangle


This is a bit late, could the bobbin case not be seated properly? You need to put it into place and then turn it clockwise until it seats soundly in the opening. Also, check for burrs...the needle may have left a rough mark on the plastic or metal in the bobbin area. A piece of batting, or even an old knee hi should snag on any rough areas.
