Thread wad on undersurface

My brother 270 d is having trouble with the embroidery feature. The thread was knotting up on the undersurface and created a great big wad of top thread under the design. I have tried tightening the tension, already to a 6. Is that what my problem is?

My thread keeps getting knotted up underneath. I have followed all the trouble shooting procedures and it still won't work.


Usually it is the top threading, tangled thread or a bent needle that causes that problem. You can call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and maybe they can suggest something else to try.

Stitching trouble


Here is a trouble shooting chart - http://www.emblibrary.com/EL/elprojects/SimpleProduct_ELP.aspx?CS_ProductID=PR1238&CS_Catalog=Elprojects

I would start with cleaning (see maintenance section of the user's manual).

This has to be done more often with sewing/embroidery machines that have a drop-in bobbin.

Be sure to use bobbin thread for machine embroidery.

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up. This will insure the thread is seating into the tension control.

I'm new to embroidering. I have BrotherSE-270 Disney. I have read through the manuel several times and am confused about the bobbin thread. Do I use tread specficaly for embrodering or will regular thread...


Your machine probably came with brother embroidery bobbin thread (one spool, white)...I used it until it was gone and did buy more embroidery bobbin thread at a regular superstore (it wasn't brother brand though)...however, I have since used regular thread and not had problems. HOWEVER, be sure it is good, quality thread - none of that $.50/spool stuff. That knots up and simply doesn't look good if it does work. Good luck!

Push the button to put the needle in the up position. Take the hoop off the unit and chekc everything. Rethread the top thread. Take out the bobbin and remove the bobbin plate (the plate, not just the cover). Check under and around the bobbin shuttle as best as you can for threads and lint. Use the brush to remove any lint clumps. If it still not working I would try switching the machine off. If you leave the item hooped and you didn't adjust your design any with the machine before you started stitching you should be able to put it back correctly. Turn the machine back on and try again, skipping ahead in the design to where you stopped before of course. If it still doesn't work contact Brother customer service.

Bobbin thread shows through fabric ALOT


When this happens you need to adjust the tension down. If it's set at a default of 4 move it down to 3.5 or even down to 3 sew a bit check. Certain threads do this more (Sulky) on the brother than others (Maderia), but the black lettering in the embroidery feature always seems to need adjusted. The tension adjustment is the same for sewing or embroidery mode.

Make sure that your needle is put in the correct way, there is a groove in the front of the needle, check with your finger nail, this is usually to be facing you, and make sure the thread is going through the tension holder correctly do not have the foot down when you are threading the machine,as this stops the thread from going through the needle tension holder.

Thread wadding up


Tension!!!! Its all about the tension! I just had this issue after loosening my tension. So tighten it - the higher the number the tighter the tension. My tension is set at 6 on a Singer 9005 and it seems to work great. By turning it down to 4 I ended up with huge loops/wads of string. Hope this helps!
