Question about Singer Quantum XL-6000 Computerized Sewing Machine

Open Question

Bobbin Jams Hi, Just unloaded my brand new Singer Quantum XL6000 machine out of the box. Set it up for embroidery, and on my first project, ran into problems. The needle keeps coming unthreaded and/or the thread breaks, the bobbin keeps getting jammed, the motor overheats... I'm pretty sure I've hooped correctly (WSS beneath my material which is a cloth diaper); using good thread (Sulky Rayon Embroidery for top; Guterman polyester bobbin thread for below); using the factory-installed Singer 90/14 needle; using stock lettering from the machine itself - shouldn't be too hard! Do I need to manually override the automatic tension adjuster? Another layer of stabilizer? Different needle? Is a cloth diaper too hard to embroider on this machine? Did I just get a lemon? No local stores seem to carry or support this product.

check to be sure machine is being threaded correctly first, then when pressure foot is lowered pull thread and see if you are getting tension, if not assembly is bad

The plastic drop-in bobbin case, is the worst I have ever seen. The thread will get jammed in it or it hops while the machine is sewing. It is not staying in place. In front of the case, on the right there is a tiny, rectangle spring. It is the only thing I can find that keeps it in place. It is attached with a tiny screw and can be moved forward.

Try removing the bobbin and cleaning the area of any stray threads or lint. When you replace the bobbin pull on the thread.

With the embroidering, some of the bobbin thread is SUPPOSED to show on the top of your embroidery-the machine isn't doing anything incorrectly. You'll need to thread your bobbin with the same thread as you are using with the top. I had the same "problem" when I first got the machine and took it to a wonderful local technician whose helped me with a lot of things who informed me that this is perfectly normal on embroidery machines.

try changing the needle--just incase the needle tip is damaged
check for burrs in the thread guide area where the top thread runs
or even on the needle plate

My endless automatic bobbin winding for embroidery doesn't work?


Are you using the bobbin especially designed for that function? Did you use the plastic template? Setting up for endless bobbin winding is quite involved, and it's easy to skip a step and make a mistake. It took me several tries to set mine up.. Frankly, once I finally got it set up, I wasn't thrilled. It doesn't hold a lot of thread, and it was quite frequently interrupting the project to wind more thread on the bobbin.

How do you get the auto threading and wind in place to work on Singer XL6000 sewing machine


There are several FB and Yahoo groups dedicated to the Quantum XL-1000, XL-5000 and XL-6000 who can help you. It may be that your problem with the autothreading is the autothreader is out of adjustment, but I'm at a loss as to the bobbin winder problem.

My embroidery (Singer Quantum XL6000) requires the Windows XP and lower on a computer to acquire additional patterns, will it work with Windows 7?


Mine works with Vista. :)
Just install the XP patch (futura-support.com/downloads/patch.htm) and tell Windows 7 to run the software in XP mode.

Your machine needs to go into the shop.

Select a Singer dealer and have your purchase information in case this is something that is covered by your warranty.

In embroidery mode, you have to send a design to the machine before the bobbin winder will work.

Bobbin case


If your machine is older than 18 months, it needs a free upgrade from your dealer. The plastic see through needle plate needs to be replaced by a newer version that will keep the bobbin down. Further more a bobbin case position finger needs to be installed.
