Where do i foun the scarf and needle bar on bernette deco 600

The scarf is on the needle itself. It is an indentation on the back of the needle above the needle eye where the thread can sit as the needle penetrates the fabric. As the needle penetrates the fabric, the thread sinks into the indentation thereby resisting fraying or pulling on the thread.

The needle attaches to the bottom of the needle bar. The needle bar is the mechanism that moves up and down to drive the needle through the fabric.

I keep getting error E6 on Brothers CS 6000i- I cleaned the thread several times and when I try to restart sewing it happens again. I've removed the bobbin and re-threaded and it keep jammin and beeping....

The motor locked up because the thread is tangled.
Remove the tangled thread before continuing the operation.
Clean the bobbin case to remove the tangled thread.
After cleaning the bobbin case, insert the bobbin case properly.
If the needle is bent or broken, replace the needle.
Then, thread the upper thread properly, and continue the operation.

Bent needle (replace with new) or the machine is out of time somewhere (get it serviced),

I am getting a code that says the needle is bent or the thread is knotted, neither is true. I have changed the needle and rethreaded both the top thread and bobbin. What else could it be

I have a Bernette Deco 600 which was doing the same thing. While it was running it would jam and give this code. If you take the cover off of the end of the top of the machine on my machine there was a rod the needle was connected to. There were two cams attached to this rod, one of the cams was slipping which threw the machine into a jam. Once I pushed the cams together and tightened down the set screw it worked great. Good luck

Bernina Deco 650 Check if upper or lower thread is cut shows on

turn machine off and on to see if message clears... not sure for that machine ( I work with Brother products) but if it has a wiper (small hook shaped blade) that trims the tread automatically it may be stuck in the extended position

It could be that there is a loose piece of thread, or some fluff which is obstructing the tension gauge. Try blowing around the theading area (or even run the hoover pipe near it to see if you can **** it out). I cleared mine by folding a piece of non fluffy material and rubbing gently between the tension dial and machine.

Good luck

Problem with threads not catching

Try putting in new needles. Make sure they are in the proper position. There is a stopper which keeps the needle down far enough to make the right connection. Sometimes the needle stopper, after long use, moves up a little which prevents the needle from going low enough to pick up the bobbin thread. You could try lowering the needle just a little. Not to far, or it will break the needle. Sewing machines need a lot of oil. Not all at once but a drop or two after an hour of use. All lint needs to be removed from under and around the bobbin before it is oiled. Keeping the machine clean and oiled is the life of the machine.
