Question about Brother SE-270D Computerized Sewing Machine
I have a problem while embroidering with my Brother SE-270D. It usually happens when embroidering a denser design. The upper thread tangles under the throat plate, causing the stitching to eventually stay in one place and then bunches the fabric. I have to lift up the embroidery hoop as much as possible and get a scissor in underneath to cut the threads. The bobbin is wrapped with tons of thread. There is a hook about an inch long that seems to be stuck over the bobbin area. I have pushed (with force) this hook back so that it aligns with the side of the inside of the machine. Have I broken something? I am using bobbin thread for embroidery. My tension is set at about 2-3, because anything tighter seems to make it worse. I am using a Size 15 bobbin, but not necessarily the one that is made for a Brother machine. Any help would be much appreciated. It is extremely frustrating. I would have to drive almost 70 miles to get it looked at.
Could the little hook that is stuck over the bobbin area be the thread cutter? My thread cutter gets stuck there and I have to turn my machine off and then try to use the cutter to reset it to its "resting" position.

Take the cover off or at least enough to blow the gear drives out around the area of the thread cutter. We use a air pump that you use to blow up an air mattress with. You will also need tweezers to pick out the thread etc. that gets wrapped around the gear and in the teeth. What happens is the gear drive gets clogged and does not turn freely.

I have this problem more frequently when I use a bobbin spool it doesn't like. It happens occasionally anyway but more when I use a different bobbin than it came with.
