    The tension on the bobbin thread seems to be the problem. How to I resolve this. Machine works for about three stitches then stops because of a jam of thread on the bottom of the material.

Perhaps the needle thread tension is too loose for the material your sewing. It could be that your thread dog is clogged with thread (this has happened to me) Check your bobbin, perhaps its just wound poorly.
OR the needle you are using is too fine/heavy for the thread.

    The tension on the bobbin needs to be loosened until it is loose enough to allow the thread to go through the tension spring but with a small amount of efffort. Make sure your bobbin is put in to rotate counterclockwise. Make sure you have cleaned up your feed dogs. Change your needle and you might check to see if your thread is going through the needle freely without getting jammed. All of these will prevent a problem. Anyway, try to sew. If it is a little thick on the bottom then increase your top tension. A hint is that your bottom and top thread is playing tug of war. The bottom is winning if it is too thick and vice versa.

Troubleshooting Brother PE 770


Usually this is a tension problem. On mechanical machines, you'd adjust the dial, or possibly even the bobbin tension. But on a computer machine, I don't know how you set the upper tension, sorry to say.

Sometimes it can help to unthread and rethread a machine, and I don't know why it sometimes works, but it's a simple thing to try.

But if the upper tension isn't set correctly for the work being done or if the tension mechanism, however that's handled on a computer machine, isn't working correctly, this is what happens. Bird's nest is a good way to describe it.

Sometimes lint built up in the bobbin case can cause this symptom too, but I'd assume you keep this area clean. One reason I haven't yet invested in a computer machine is because problems like this often don't have such simple solutions as on the mechanical machines.

I have a DB2-B797 and have lost the threading instructions. This is an older industrial model. Nesting is on the bottom of the material when sewing. Do you have instructions for proper threading of this...


Here are some pictures. Hope they help. If not I can attempt to describe how to thread. Good Luck. Well, I can not get my photo size below 150 kb as required to post. So, if you want to email me I will send it via email. donnabullard@me.com
