Question about Elna Quilter's Dream 6003Q
I have a Elna Quilters Dream 6003 . I keep having the same problem with my thread breaking. I know its the thread that I use. I was told that the thread is gettting stuck where it comes down and then goes back up and then thorugh the thread take-up level. Is there anyway I can take the face place that covers this area and open it to get the thread that builds up in there? I have taken it twice to a repair shop and was just wondering if I can do that part myself?
There is a screw in the side cover of your machine. You can't see it because it is covered with a round piece of plastic and this Can be seen. To remove it, use a small thin blade screwdriver to lift it out.Find the screw and remove it. The cover will be a little difficult to pull off but not impossible.
By the way, Maxi lock thread is a 2ply thread made for overlock machines. It does not give as good a tension as 3 ply sewing machine thread and it is not as strong.
Coats and Clark makes a good quilting thread on a cone. It will cost more but should give you a lot less grief.
If thread is building up,it is lint and is usually caused by a sharp surface that it is passing over. Find the sharp edge and make it smoother.
