I think the bobbin filler is on the top of the machine, on the right. You bobbin goes on the post and then slides to the right to engage.

There should be a round metal guide on the top of the machine. The thread should go from the spool, around this guide, and then to the bobbin.

Your bobbin should have a hole or slot to put the thread through to get it started. You can hold onto the thread for the first second or two and then let go.

The foot pedal that makes the needle go will also make your bobbin spin.

What's wrong with my Nelco 234F sewing machine. When I try to sew, the machine gets jammed and the thread is all tangled around the bobbin.


Install a brand new needle.

Remove the top thread. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

Generally, the top tension should be set at the midway point and then tweaked for your particular machine.

If you continue to have a problem, the machine probably needs service.

I keep getting error E6 on Brothers CS 6000i- I cleaned the thread several times and when I try to restart sewing it happens again. I've removed the bobbin and re-threaded and it keep jammin and beeping....


The motor locked up because the thread is tangled.
Solution:
Remove the tangled thread before continuing the operation.
Clean the bobbin case to remove the tangled thread.
After cleaning the bobbin case, insert the bobbin case properly.
If the needle is bent or broken, replace the needle.
Then, thread the upper thread properly, and continue the operation.

It keeps getting tangled up here the bobbin is underneath and keeps getting jammed


try changing the needle--make sure it's the correct one for the fabric
being sewed
rethread the machine ---using every thread guide
try using a different bobbin
try turning the bobbin over the other direction
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
also could be a timing problem and the machine would need to be
checked at a sewing machine repair shop

E6. Motor locked up because the thread is tangled. I have re-threaded machine and bobbin; thread still tangles after 2 or 3 stitches. HELP!


In my Brother CE-4000, it appears as though the feed dogs (which you can change to a higher position or a lower position) are allowing the bobbin case to spin all the way around and then the needle hits the bobbin case. When the feed dogs are in the lowest position, the bobbin case does not spin all the way around when the needle moves up and down (and therefore the needle does not get stuck in the bobbin case. I am wondering if this is a problem with the feed dogs/case?

I keep getting an E6 error message - tangled thread. I think it's the bobbin thread that's getting tangled, and I can't figure out why, or how to fix it. Any ideas?


It could be that the bobbin is being put in upside down check to make sure that you do not need a bobbin with a magnet on one side. also make sure there is no thread tangled inside the bobbin housing it will cause the timing of the machine to be off and cause issues with your needle picking up the bobbin and thus cause a mess inside you bobbin housing

Sewing machine not making stiches


At first, my machine was getting all tangled under the fabric and then would stop working because it was tangled in the bobbin area. Now the bobbin area is staying clear but there are no stiches being made. I have no idea what to do. melissashulga@yahoo.com

Euro pro 385w problems


if your machine is like mine the bobbin is not filling right. My bobbin thread is very loose when it should be tight. I am also looking for bobbin solutions. If I wind the thread around the thread tension guide 2 or three times it keeps the thread tight going to the bobbin winder. I hope this helps
