Question about Brother SE-270D Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Top Thread Hi, I am new with this machine. I was trying to use the embroidery. I was having a bit of trouble in the beginning. At first, the shirt (along with the Light weight Stabilizer) had gotten pulled and caught (it bore a small hole on the shirt). I was able to get it out and cleaned the machine (as directed from the manual). Then I was able to get it working, but when I got to the 3rd thread color the top thread kept breaking off, then the bobbin thread is not getting pulled up for stitching. So the only thread going in the shirt is the top, then it breaks off. Is it from the tension? What can I do? Please Help!

Can you sew a normal zig zag on a scrap piece to check if the bobbin thread is being picked up.....if not, or only on one side of the ZZ, then your timing will need adjusting.

OR...

Are you using an old blunt needle ?

Top tension is too loose. Even adjusted to 0. Was stitching fine embroidery Same pattern.


Not sure but most machines 0 on the tension is the loosest tension. To tighten, move it to a higher number.

The other thing to try is install a brand new needle and remove the top thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the machine from the begining--verify the thread path is correct.

I have mc9900 janome when trying to embroidery on t-shirt material threads bunch up in back and I end up with holes in shirt


Are you using a fabric stabilizer to prevent the t-shirt fabric from stretching?

Also, be sure to Always Raise the presser foot when threading the top thread. Knots could be bird nests.

When I do embroidery on om singer future the top tension is to loos it make some loops please help?


Remove the upper thread. Then RAISE the presser foot and re-thread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point and retest your machine. You may need to tweak the upper tension. For garment or regular sewing, the tension is correct when both threads meet in the middle of the fabric, however embroidery sometimes requires the upper thread to be a bit looser so the bobbin thread will not appear on the top of the fabric.

How do you start embroidering a design where the thread breaks on a Bernina Artista 180 sewing/embroidery machine?


Most machines have a stitch counter, stitch forward and step back features. Check your manual and embroidery machine's screens for this.

IN case you have misplaced your manual I found this one for you. It's big so allow time to download.

My top thread does not pick up the bobbin thread. I broke a needle in it the other day and replaced the needle and now having trouble with the bobbin thread. It is not turning? I am very new to embroidery....


Take off your throat plate and make sure that there is not a piece of your needle still in there, brush it out and oil your machine if it needs it. Now rethread.

Cotton breaks on Brother Embroidery Galaxie 2100 machine


Try turning down your top tension setting a bit. If its at 4 or 5, i would turn it down to about 3 ish. Cotton thread is more brittle than polyester and rayon thread.

Hope that helps :)

On what number should I put 7570 tention when


Refer to the manual. If you do not have a manual, start at 4 and work your way through the numbers, bit by bit until you get good results.

The bobbin thread should pull the top thread slightly under and to the back.

Machine embroidery bobbin thread is heavier than the standard size machine embroidery top thread and this also helps to pull the top thread to the back.

Embroidery pattern trouble


When mine did this, I had a little tiny bit of thread stuck in the winding path of the endless bobbin. After I cleaned it of all thread, it went back to perfect work.
