That machine comes with a pink dot auxilary bobbin case with a pink dot. This bobbin case has an additional gram pull of 7-9 grams, for use of bobbin thread other than the finishing touch brand that is suggested for this model. You can also go to page 4 of the control setting page and reduce the default the embroidery tension setting.

You have your bobbin inserted into the machine spinning in the wrong direction. take the bobbin out and flip it over and wind around needle plate guide and cut. Look at the little pictogram on the plastic part of the machines throat plate. It shows which direction the thread should spin off the spool when you drop the top loading bobbin into the bobbin case.

I can't understand the manual's directions on how to adjust the tension on the bottom and my bobbin thread is coming to the right side of the fabric.

Make sure the bobbin turns anti clockwise in the bobbin case, adjust the screw clockwise a quarter of a turn at a time until you can just pull the thread through with slight resistence, top tension about 4 or 5

My machine will sew one or two stitches then the threads get all tangled under the plate. appears to be the top thread, not the bobbin

Try these suggestions

1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed

2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide

3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case

4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever

5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads

Bobbin thread is coming to the top of the embroidery project

Refer to the manual for cleaning the bobbin case and surrounding area.

Re-thread and replace the bobbin. Be sure to use machine embroidery bobbin thread. I use NEB prewounds.

Try a different design and use a cut away stabilizer. This holds the stitches better than tear away.

If the stitching is as before, lower the tension setting.

If you cannot resolve this, it could be a timing issue. Try the sewing feature to see if the stitching is off. If so, the machine will need to go in for service - take samples with you.

The bottom thread gets all knotted up when I sew... everything locks up and there is a mess of thread on the underside of what I'm trying to sew. help?

The tension in the top thread is controlled by a dial, and the tension in the bottom thread is controlled by a small screw on a spring on the bobbin. The tensions are supposed to be exactly equal in order to make the stitch perfectly in the middle of the cloth. Uneven tension will pull the stitch up or down from there. You can tug on each thread to feel how much tension there is. Often the bottom will get too much tension by just inserting the bobbin upside down. Leave the bobbin door open, and watch the operation. The top thread is pulled down around the bobbin. See if it is getting caught on anything?

I am embroidering and my machine is picking up the bobbin thread and it is appearing on the front of my project and also on the bottom of the design

Make sure that the bobbin thread is in the bobbin case tension. If you are using special "bobbin thread" it may be a lighter weight thread than the top thread.

Turn the upper tension to a lower number.

Make sure that you have adequate stabilizer and the appropriate type.

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.

Thread problem

I'm not sure which thread you are referring to, its either the bobbin thread (under) or the needle thread (

Thread is knotting up

You probably are in need of a new bobbin case they are plastic and oif you have broken a needle lately it may have gouged the case and the top thread is getting caught and bunching up underneath. Visit you can contact them and have a bobbin case sent to you.
