Question about Singer Sewing Machines
It can make about 9 stitches, then gives me this error, and the underside is bird nesting. I have changed needles, re-threaded a million times, cleaned the bobbin casing, adjusted tension, and even took the case off to check the tension disks and make sure everything is clean inside. I did find a little bit of thread stuck on two different areas on the inside, and was able to remove it all without issue or damaging anything. This helped a little, but I am still having the same E6 error at the same number of stitches. I can adjust the thread tension as tight or as loose as possible, and it is still doing the same thing. I have done 'tension' tests where you pull top thread through with the presser foot up, and then down, and I am getting tension, so it should be threaded right. I have also been embroidering on the thing for months, and it's never been an issue before. I think from what I have gathered is that the upper thread is not fully coming out of the bobbin casing area, causing it to loop up underneath.
Just a couple of things:
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the threads. When threading the tension disks, stop and give each thread an extra little tug to confirm it is seated in the tension disk.
It could be there is still some lint or broken thread hiding somewhere. Or the thread sensor is sensing thread where this is none. Perhaps it has lint or even a fingerprint on it.
