Question about Brother PC-6000 Pacesetter
A square button, that select stiches stoped working. The machine is only can do letters,but not zigzag nor other stiches.
0,1,2 stopped working, everything else was fine. Needs a new panel keyboard. I had to take mine to the local sewing shop. Board $157, install another $50. Found a used board for $75 and same install $. Both new and used boards only come with a 60 day guarantee. I could get a new Brother 6000i machine for the fix price. I don't use the monogram much but I like this machine. I was told this is not a common problem.

SOURCE: FEW STITCHES DROP IN BOBBIN
Dropped stitches troubleshooting:
1>change to a new proper needle (proper needle means quilting needles for free motion, stretch needle for knits, leather needle for leather, microtex needle for micro fabrics.....etc.) of proper size. Most sewers never need a needle smaller then an 80/12 when sewing. Smaller needles bend more easily causing more problems.
2>If a new needle doesn’t fix the problem, remove parts from bobbin case area (as best as easily allowable) and clean out all the lint thoroughly, and oil with 2-3 drops of oil where friction occurs (turn hand wheel and look for rubbing)
3>If still skipping, try a different spool of thread (Yes, thread can caused skipped stitches, not common but I see it).
4>If you haven’t solved it yet, sounds like you could need to make a lower level adjustment like hook timing.
To time the machine, you want the tip of the hook to pass just over the top of the eye of the needle when the needle is in the left most or right most position depending on which side the eye of the needle will be higher

Two reels of thread on the top,make sure the threads go seperate sides in between the tension discs, thread both needles but remember not to put the stitch width more than 2.

The loopy stitching is usually do to threading the machine with the presser foot down.
Raise the presser foot and re-thread or pull about 8" of thread through the needle and see if the loopy stitches go away.
This may also be the issue with the zig-zag stitch.
When the machine is threaded with the presser foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter as it should for the tension to control the flow of thread to the needle. The thread then feeds too fast and the stitching is distorted.

Simple things first, check the needle to make sure it is perfect, if you can select all the patterns and the needle moves from side to side but does not pick up the thread then it could be a timing issue and you can email me for attachment of instructions, if the needle is not moving side to side when you select a pattern then it may well be a split camstack.
