Question about Brother XL-2600I

1 Answer

When i start sewing, the needle only goes a couple times before it start to "catch" on the bobbin(yes, i believe that i have the correct one)....or the thread(dont know which) and then the bobbin "knocks" around when the needle goes down. That creates the material to be pulled downward slightly and the back of material gets a lump of thread. I need to finish this project... HELP!! GETTING FRUSTRATING!!

Make sure the thread comes off the bobbin in a counter-clockwise direction. This has happened to me before and I took the machine for repairs. :( Hopefully, that's all it is.

Bernette deco 600 I have changed the needle, rethreaded the machine, new bobbin in and it is still not catching the bobbin thread to sew!


Do you have the bobbin in correctly? Clockwise or counterclockwise...
Is the needle in correctly? It could be backwards.
Rethread the bobbin if the thread is not wound on properly...too fast makes the thread too tight, too slow and it can wrap onto the bobbin in a haphazard way.
Check to be sure have the correct needle for your machine...matches stitch etc..
If your machine is electronic...turn it off so it goes back to any default settings.
seems like a lot, but one little thing...

The bobbin case catches the needle and the thread wraps around the bobbin case


If you are saying the needle is hitting the bobbin case when it goes down then it could be one of two things:

1. Bobbin case not all the way in. This can be caused by debris in the rotary hook or the bobbin case has been hit by the needle and has cracked/and or bent it. Make sure it is snapping into place correctly.
2. The rotary hook is out of time. Reset the rotary hook point behind the needle and about the middle of the scarf of the needle. Make sure you run the needle all the way down and as it starts back up this is where you set the hook.

How to fix a hook & timing issue on singer inspiration 4205?


I would over ride the auto setting and trial and error the process by manually turning the tension my self, also it has to do with the fabric too, sometimes whatever fabric is being used tends to regulate the tensioner too, good luck

I was sewing with elna machine and ran out of thread. This caused the thread to ball up underneath and "jam" the machine. I cleared it out and rethreaded it, but now the top thread doesn't catch the bobbin...


it is possible that the sewing machine has a timing problem, but check to see if the needle is inserted correctly into the needle holder
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case if the machine has a top loading bobbin
if the machine has a side or front loading bobbin also make sure the bobbin case is inserted correctly into the machine.
and also make sure the top thread has not come off the thread take up lever

My needle has started hitting on the bobbin case in the mahine,can anyone tell me how to fix this problem.


Could be a couple of things:

Could be a bent needle? please change it for a sharp new one and make sure it goes in correctly, flat shank to the back.

Bobbin case dislodged or not in correctly ; I think these are vertical rotary hook machines with the bobbin inside a removeable bobbin case? Check that you have put the case in correctly, there is usually a long finger on the case that latches into a point on the rotary hook, holding the case in the correct position. Probably also a latch on the front of the bobbin case, which you use to fit it into place and remove it.

Lastly could be that the machine timing is out. Manually turn through a stitch sequence with no thread or bobbin, the needle needs to be at its lowest point down into the bobbin area when the rotary hook brings the thread around to catch at the back of the needle.

If you suspect it is the timing, you may want to get a technician to do this repair but certainly try the first two items first.

When the needle goes down into the bobin area below, it catches on the "round about", so the whole point is that it misses the thread, and doesn't catch it, what can i do to fix this??


It sounds like your problem is as simple as either a bent needle or a bobbin casing that is inserted improperly. First, change your needle being mindful of the type of fabric (and thread) you are using (e.g. Size 11 ballpoint for a light knit or a size 18 jeans needle for denim). Make sure that the bobbin casing is set in correctly, and that the bobbin goes in the correct way. (i.e. Counter-clockwise for a drop-in style bobbin). This should solve your issue. Happy sewing!

Viking husqvarna classica 100, thread tension


I suspect you are correctly threading the machine but the timing of the needle and bobbin hook is off. When the threaded needle goes into the bobbin area, a pointed hook grabs the thread and loops it with the bobbin thread. Something is catching when the needle starts to come up that is not allowing the bobbin thread to be pulled back through the needle plate opening by the upper thread. With machine threaded and bobbin in place, have the bobbin area open if possible and watch the thread interaction when the needle goes down. To set the hook/needle timing, normally covers have to be removed. Suggest taking it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.
