Question about Baby Lock Ellure
Was sewing fine and then bobbin thread was low, wanted to finish embroidery so kept sewing a bit more, upper thread wound around bobbin locked up the machine and broke the needle. clipped all the threads, and cleaned out the bobbin case, and feed dog area, changed the needle, tried different kinds of neeedles. Will not pick up the bobbin thread at all, just get big loops of upper thread under fabric.
I was given a baby lock machine and all was going well until I had to change the bobbin. The top thread would not catch the bobbin thread and all I got was a big mess of top thread underneath the fabric. Since I am only a beginer at sewing - I'm wondering did I not thread the bobbin correctly or what went wrong.
Where can I find som instructions on how to thread this machine the right way? Thanks
Sounds like you have to take off the throat plate and clean out threads under it. Sometime they ball up and prevent the needle from going down and catching the bobbin thread. You can't see themuntil you take off the plate. Follow the directions. It is easy.

It sounds like you did everything I was taught to do by Dad. Not picking up bobbin thread sounds like a top needle problem. Either slightly bent - something you can usually see, or find out with zig-zag on. Or a 'burr' on the needle, easily fixed with an emery board. Something you can feel. Your question goes back so many years, that I hope you haven't given up on sewing, altogether!

SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread
I cleaned the machine good with canned air, oiled it. I took out the bobbin case and cleaned it good also. I then noticed the tension screw on the bobbin case was loose, tightened it and the problem was fixed.
