Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Babylock Ellisimo Gold machine sews for about 20 stitches and then stops. A screen comes up and says Check and rethread the top thread. And the cycle begins again.

When embroidering with a hoop, the machine will sew the first 20 or so stitches and then stop. (It stops in the same place each time it is sewn.) The prompt comes up on the screen asking you to check and rethread the top thread. And you begin again, and the same thing happens. I have rethreaded, blown out the cracks and crevices with canned air, rethreaded the bobbin, put in a new needle and nothing of that sort has helped.

    Thread the machine with the presser foot UP until you get to #5 then put it down and finish threading. With the foot down, the tension disks are closed so the thread is not seated between them.

SOURCE: Babylock Ellure thread issues

I have the same machine and love it. Sometimes if the thread is old that will happen to me.  And also I spray the thread with static guard before i thread the machine in dry cold weather.  Since you said you are an embroiderer I assume you are using the same weight thread top and bottom. The other thing that causes that on my machine is if there is a nick on the spool of thread I am using and the thread catches just a little as it comes off the spool.  I use a fine nail file and smooth off the edge where the little v is to reattach the thread when you are finish using it.  I never use them. You do sew a little and cut off the tail off the top thread before you let it go through the rest of design. I hope you have found the solution but I learned these tricks while having the same problem as you.

SOURCE: on a babylock elegante the bobbin thread shows,

Have you reset the tensions for this machine, look in your manual and follow directions. If this is an Elegante there is also a set of instructions on the machine. On the LCD screen there is a picture of a sewing machine with a question mark, touch it, find Troubleshooting and touch that then find the problem you are having and read. If this does not help take it to a Brother dealer and have it reset so as to keep you machine in good running order.

SOURCE: needle not picking up bottom thread

Remove the needle plate and the bobbin case.

Ensure that the needle is inserted all the way up into the needle clamp.

Set the machine for straight stitch, center needle position.

Slowly turn the handwheel in the normal sewing direction and observe the following hook timing setting:

When the needle reaches it's lowest point and travels up 3.5mm, the point of the hook should be directly behind the needle, or at least within 1 or 2mm.

Another view is as the hook passes the needle, it should pass the needle slightly above the eye of the needle.

If the timing looks good, use some alcohol on a bit of cloth to clean the hook, careful around the tip of the hook as it is very sharp.

If the hook timing is off, you will need to take it to a knowledgeable service person as there are several possible solutions and several other related adjustments which will need to be made.

Baby locker has no stitch at all ive thread it just as shown on diagram , im so frustrated with it


Remove all the thread.

RAISE the presser foot. Then rethread from the beginning making sure you are following "each" thread's steps and that you are threading each thread in the "order" specified in the manual. (If any steps are missed or the threads are not done in correct order, the machine most likely will never work! Sergers are finicky machines!)

For most sergers, the lower looper thread's "final" step is to lay "over" the top of the upper looper before begin pulled under the presser foot.

Also, if a thread breaks or comes unthreaded, the best policy is to unthread and start over. Simply rethreading the one thread will "Not" work!

If you still can't get it to work, you might take it to a Babylock dealer and have them look at your threading. Could be something is wrong with the machine other than the threading.

Hi, I am using a domestic brother XL26-20 sewing machine, it is threaded correctly, the tension seems to be fine as it the stitch and stitch size but every time i sew, the machine makes a clicking sound...


Are you using the same weight of thread top and bottom? Usually it is the top threading causing the problem, either it is tangled or slipped out of a guide, totally rethread and install a fresh needle. other than that you should call Brother at 1-877-276-8437

This error indictaes that the upper thread is broken. If it is not the sensor is telling the computer the thread is broken. Try tightening the upper thread tension some and rethread the upper thread.
