Question about Brother Disney PE-180D Computerized Sewing Machine
My machine used to work fine. It was then put away while we moved and got sorted ect. I got it out the other week to use and now all it is doing is bunching the thread underneath. It is also working its self around the bobbin aswell. Anyone know how to stop this and get it working how it should do again? Many Thanks
Try changing the needle
rethread the machine top and bobbin
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case
and that the bobbin is turned the right way
make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
if the machine continues to see bunch thread underneath then the
machine may need to be checked to see if some part has become
damaged or out of alignment

Hi, Is it your bobbin thread or the top thread wrapping around the bobbin. I just got a used PE150. The top thread keeps wrapping around the bobbin. It is not picking up the bobbin thread. Did you find a solution for your problem?

I hope to God nobody else pays more for a repair than the machine is worth.
It's ridiculous to spend $300 for that repair since the machine is available almost everywhere for way under $200. You could have thrown that one in the trash and bought a new one cheaper than the repair!!
I paid $129 for mine, had the same problem with two, yes, two of them, and sent them back and was sent another which so far is working fine. There seems to be a flaw in the engineering of that machine since so many people are experiencing the same problem. The machines DO have a warranty so please, please, be careful of unscrupulous repair people. Oh, I'm sorry but I need to mention that I bought my machine from eBay and it was a refurbished machine sold by Ken Sewing and Vacumm in Muscle Shoals, Al. They stand behind their products and were very nice to deal with, they even paid for the return shipping on the two that I returned. Hope this helps y'all.

insert the bobbin so the thread comes out in the middle a away from you, hold the thread end push the bobbin down with with your finger, and pass the thread securely through the thread cutting groove

Your thread tension needs adjustment.
Most likely it is the lower thread tension (not the upper thread tensioner).
When sewing very thin or very heavy material - it is required to adjust the lower tension as well.
To regulate the lower thread tension - turn the small screw on the tension spring of the bobbin case with a small screwdriver.
To increase tension - turn it clockwise SLIGHTLY.
