SOURCE: Husqvarna Sapphire - thread cutter not working

Does the metal arm come out to grab the threads to cut it? Is there a blade in the metal arm that cuts the tread? I think a standard utility knife cutter blade is the same size (just like the one that cuts the bobbin thread when you put in a new bobbin). What happens when you activate the cutter is the arm comes out, grabs the threads, brings them to the blade which cuts the threads, the velcro by the cutter holds the bobbin thread in place for the next stitch. Otherwise the thread may end up on top and the top thread would not be able to pick it up for the next stitch.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Babylock espire bobbin sensor not working

This is normally caused by lint in the bobbin area, the lint blocks the sensor causing it to be blind. Try cleaning the area and see if that helps.

Tension settings for the babylock sewing machine


I found that the tension setting of 1 worked. The main problem was the machine had thread wound around behind the bobbin. I had to take the plates that are under the foot out, clean out the thread, oil the machine and use a spool of thread that had more weight than the little spool I was trying to use.

Babylock EMP6 problem with thread cutting


The thread cutting mechanism is dull and needs to be replaced or sharpened. I had the same problem on my machine. I found another post where another user said it has to be replaced every 150 hours of machine use, the cost was 62 dollars. My dealer would not sell me the parts he said I had to bring it in, so I decided to sharpen it myself. See picture for more details. To start take the two screws of the top of the chrome plate to reveal cutter that is above bobbin. The cutter is in two parts both chrome plated. The hook part is held in place by a copper plated screw, the blade (shown in picture hanging off to the side) is held in place by one small screw. I sharpened the blade on a fine grit Japanese water stone (brown block shown in picture) to a razor edge and about a 7 degree angle; the tip of the blade must ride on the hook. This still did not make the cutter work perfectly so I had to take the hook out and reform the small hole in the hook that the blade rides over with a the un-fluted end of a 5/64 high speed steel drill bit. Was not hard to do because the hook is not hardened steel, at least on mine. When putting the blade back on make sure it is resting against the rolled black pressed pin before tightening down.

Good luck!f1f2e5b.jpg
