Problem with my Babylock embroidery machine

My Babylock Ellegante is bunching up the upper thread under every design I try to sew. It simply ruins the design. The machine is less than 3 years old and the man who serviced it says all these machine do this. I find this hard to believe, since it did not do this when I first purchased it. He said most people who have these machines are disappointed with them.. Please, Please help,

I had this problem. You need to be sure that the upper thread is not catching on something. Also, be sure to take out the bobbin case and brush out the area in and around that area throughougly, after every use. Lastly, use a good brand of thread.

What is wrong when the underside of embroidery has bunched thread


Hello

The bunched-up thread on the underside is the needle thread. Check that the upper thread is threaded correctly, passing through all the required thread guides and that the thread is securely lodged in the tension assembly ... there should be reasonable tension when upper thread being pulled by hand.
Also check that:
- there are no 'dust bunnies' or a piece of thread hiding in the tension assembly, and that
- the needle is inserted correctly and that it is a system 130/705H Embroidery needle.

Happy Stitching

Having trouble with tension on my Husqvarna Viking E 20


Be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. (Remove the upper thread and rethread from the beginning.) Upper thread malfunctions commonly occur if it is not threaded correctly or the thread is not seated in the tension disk properly.

Install a brand new needle if you haven't already done so.

WHAT DO I DO TO GET MY BABY LOCK ELLURE ESL TO PICK UP THE BOBBIN THREAD?


You have your bobbin inserted into the machine spinning in the wrong direction. take the bobbin out and flip it over and wind around needle plate guide and cut. Look at the little pictogram on the plastic part of the machines throat plate. It shows which direction the thread should spin off the spool when you drop the top loading bobbin into the bobbin case.

Embroidery sewing machine stopped working


I am not sure what you mean: motor runs but nothing else moves?

Have you have turned the machine off and tried again? Like computers, sometimes they need rebooted.

More information is needed to evaluate further.

after 8 years of sitting, the machine needs to go to the shop so that areas that are inaccessabe to the sewer can be cleaned and serviced by the tech. also check the upper threading of the machine. the tension is changed if threaded incorrectly. bunching under the material is caused by several different reasons. I would first have the machine cleaned and serviced by the tech, and let them know it has been 8 years since use. we all begin walking by taking one step at a time.
