My design sews out and looks great, but when you get to checking, part of the lettering comes unsewed. Like the bobbin thread never caught.

Be sure you are using a brand-new sharp needle. Needles should be changed often. Verify the tension is set tight enough to slightly pull the bobbin thread up. It could also be possible your machine is slightly out of time.

I have a Consew P1206RB and it will sew great but the bobbin thread breaks and gets caught in the Bobbin Assy, what would cause this to keep happening?

Check the bobbin tension. You might have to turn the screw on the spring that guides the thread through the bobbin. Also could be thread quality, but check the bobbin tension first.

Showing E6

You receive the error message E6 when the motor locked up because thread is tangled or the machine is seizing up.

Remove the tangled thread, it it still happens that means your machine is seizing and requires service.

Letters are Backwards

It's a tension issue. Sounds like too much bobbin thread is coming to the top of the fabric.

Check to ensure your needle is fully inserted and not bent or burred.
Then check to see that there is no bits of thread caught in the bobbin and race area.

I am totally new to machine sewing and I have a Husqvarna Model 400, its been working perfect then suddenly when sewing the thread from underneath (the spool side) is just coming out in huge clumps, the...

When you say "the spool side" I assume you mean the bobbin. There are a couple of reasons why this could be happening. First re-thread your upper thread with the presser foot up and check to see if the top thread is firmly in the tension disc. Usually when you have looping of thread on the underside of your fabric, it is the upper thread that is out of whack. Just the opposite of what you would think! When you're sure the top thread is right check your bobbin to make sure that's wound tight and not "mushy." When you start by wrapping the thread around the bobbin by hand and then put it on the winder to fill it, it is not tight enough so the whole bobbin winds too loose. This can cause clumps underneath. The last thing to check is that the bobbin thread is caught in the tension slot in the bobbin case and that there is no stray threads in the bobbin case opening to cause trouble. Hope this helps. Good luck. You have a great machine!

Thread gets caught in feed dog while free motion quilting.

First, remove the thread and re-thread the machine. If the thread isn't in the take-up lever properly, erratic problems ensue.

Next, try removing the needle plate and bobbin case and inspecting both for any nicks or burrs. (your instruction book will guide you how) These can be very carefully polished off with 1500 grit sandpaper. Also check the hook for burrs.

I am having trouble with my bobbin . When I put into the sewing machine and begin to sew the cotton just bunches up and jams . Any suggestions

Here are a couple of things to try.

* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your
bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.

* Change your bobbin
There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you

* When you start to sew a seam, grasp the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back
and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting
caught in your machine.

Hope this helps.

Designer 1 Embroidery Bobbin problem

Designer 1 bobbin case tension adjustment:
When the bobbin runs out, sometimes it bends the bobbin case tension spring. Then tension is too light. Take the bobbin case out of the machine. Tie the loose bobbin thread to the Designer 1 needle plate. Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case. Here’s the tricky part set the bobbin case on the table as if it’s in the machine (Bobbin is visible and sitting horizontal to table top) threaded as if sewing and loose end tied to needle plate (that is removed from the machine). Lift the bobbin case off the table rotate it so that the flat side of the bobbin are vertical to the table and no longer horizontal. Have the bobbin case oriented so that the thread coming out of the bobbin case sprint (slot area where it is put for sewing) is at the top. Lift it high enough that the needle plate is lifted from the table. It should not release thread unless you shake it gently and then a very small amount of thread. The needle plate is the exact weight resistance your bobbin case should have on the thread.
