I would suggest a new bobbin casing, yours maybe damaged. Also, you may want to check the tracking under the bobbin casing for any dust or lint. This will throw the bobbin off track.

Trouble shoot message. Thread is tangled. Needle is bent.

  1. Upper thread or lint is caught around the check spring.
  2. UNPLUG machine before you take off side cover!
If you don't know how to open side cover take it into your repair tech.

My bobbin thread keeps getting tangled and breaking everytime I try and sew....I have tried rethreading the bobbin, taking everything apart and cleaning out the dust and debris, I have adjusted the thread...

there is a screw on the side of the bobbin case, which needs to be turned to the left or counter clockwise to loosen the tension and also change the needle because a burr on the end will cause problems with bobbin thread

On a babylock elegante the bobbin thread shows,

Have you reset the tensions for this machine, look in your manual and follow directions. If this is an Elegante there is also a set of instructions on the machine. On the LCD screen there is a picture of a sewing machine with a question mark, touch it, find Troubleshooting and touch that then find the problem you are having and read. If this does not help take it to a Brother dealer and have it reset so as to keep you machine in good running order.

Needle won't pick up bobbin thread

Is it possible the bobbin is in backwards? I have also found mine to be fussy with cheap bobbins.

Hi Sally,
Don't forget to change your needle too. It may not look bent, but it probably is.
