Question about Singer Quantum XL-1000 Computerized Sewing Machine
When trying to embroider, the thread wants to break after about the first few stitches. I have cleaned AGAIN the bobbin area for any little lint and there is none. I have tried to blow anything in the threading area, but it all seems to be to no avail. Can anyone help me with this? I am using the Sulky thread. I have done this numerous times before but the last few times the thread just wants to keep breaking no matter how many times I try. Thank you for your help.
Hey Sewnice838, when my Quantum 1000 was giving me this problem the gal at the Singer store told me I had to use embroidery bobbin thread as well as embroidery top thread and I had to use a special kind of stabilizer. I also slide the speed regulator to a slower setting so that my machine doesn't get quite so ramped up. Sorry it's such a hassle, but that is what fixed the problem for me. Changing the needle is a good idea too.

I had the same problem....I tried cleaning it just like you did. Eventually, I changed the needle and it took care of the problem :)
Hope that helps!
