Question about Brother XL-2600

Upper and Lower Thread Tangled around bobbin case

The bobbin thread doesn't seem to be catching properly and just gets tangled all around the thing that moves the bobbin (no idea what they call these things). I have changed the needle, both threads and still having the same problem. Is it possible the bobbin mover thing isn't moving properly?

It is possible that the "shuttle" isn't moving properly. It's also possible that it has a burr. Since it appears that you not little to nothing about these machines I would take it in and have it serviced. Tell the service person about your problem. Ask them to clean, oil, and time it.... and look for issues with parts. it will cost you about $150 or more if it needs parts.

The motor locked up because the thread is tangled.

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.

When sewing the thread under the material gets all tangled up. The thread is also tangled in the bobbin. At times the needle doesn't even pick up the bobbin thread, but that is another issue.


have you tried a new needle?
the needle may be bent or damaged--try rolling the needle on a flat surface to see if it's bent or not
Or the needle could be in backwards
Correct needle insertion
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine or if using a round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw

2.upper tension may be to tight--try 3 to 5

3.thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint

4.also clean under the needle plate for lint & loose threads

check to see if the thread has come off the thread take up lever

E6. Motor locked up because the thread is tangled. I have re-threaded machine and bobbin; thread still tangles after 2 or 3 stitches. HELP!


In my Brother CE-4000, it appears as though the feed dogs (which you can change to a higher position or a lower position) are allowing the bobbin case to spin all the way around and then the needle hits the bobbin case. When the feed dogs are in the lowest position, the bobbin case does not spin all the way around when the needle moves up and down (and therefore the needle does not get stuck in the bobbin case. I am wondering if this is a problem with the feed dogs/case?

You need to sew the first stitch slowly. Lower the needle by hand and take up carefully. Pull the needle thread up and the bobbin thread should be caught in the formed loop and come with it. Pull them both to the back of the machine and sew.

Ensure that you have routed the bobbin thread properly. Also, if the bobbin case is not installed properly it will give you this problem. Ensure that the protrusion is touching the spring on the body of the machine.
