WHat is wrong when the thread is pileing up on the botom side of fabric and it stalls during sewing? It is the main thread and not the bobbin thread, I changed colors so I could tell what tread was...

Check the bobbin tension and that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder.

Removing cartridge

The machine must be off before you insert or remove the cartridge, otherwise you can damage the machine or the cartridge. Once the power is off, simply grasp the cartridge firmly and pull it straight up.

Remember also to remove the plasitc insert that came with the cartridge from the face of the machine, so that you don't get confused about which stitch you are selecting!

My auto thread component is not egaging the thread down to the needle.

Need more information. Is the auto thread component going down to the needle? Is
it missing the needle hole? If this is the problem, make sure that the needle position is in the correct position by pushing the needle position button. This will bring the needle to correct height for the thread to be inserted. I had a problem similar and it was because the needle was not in the correct position. When using the thread insertion press it slowly and watch to see where the insertion part is going.

I have a brother se270-d embroidery/sewing machine. It is supposed to thread will not. I am getting ready to take it to a service!

This is a common problem for these machines with a cartridge type threader. I have tried to find someone to fix one of these and the answer I got from two repairmen was "thread it manually." Apparently the frequency of using the cartridge threading mechanism wasn't tested enough before being put on the market. When it works, it's wonderful but the only solution is to get a second cartridge. When they first came out, I sold them at a place where I worked and they told me to sell a second cartridge with the machine. They said it was so you could have another color handy and ready to go but now when I look back, maybe they realized that using the cartridge daily was too much wear and tear and if the customer had two of these, it would take longer for them to wear out. Just my opinion.

A tiny rubberized thing popped out of my machine where it threads the machine now it won't work

Hi, you will probably need to order a new thread cartridge for your machine. You can usually find them on eBay. If not, search for your machine on Google, and you should find dealers listed who sell the part your need.

Good luck, Ginny

Hi - I'm sorry you have been waiting for an answer to your problem. Can you tell me whether this was first time you used the cartrige, or has it been working up until now? Unfortunately, the cartridges tend to break fairly easily.
To determine whether your cartridge is broken, take out the thread and thread it again. The cartridge won't lock-in unless your presser foot is up and your needle is raised to its hightest position (needle threaders are designed to prevent damage, so they often won't work if the parts of your machine are not positioned properly for threading).  
If the cartidge still won't engage, check the page in your manual that describes the parts that came with your machine - you should see a picture of a spool pin. Although the spool pin is designed to accommodate spools of thread that don't fit in your cartrige, you can use the spool pin all the time. Your manual describes how to install the spool pin.
Fortunately, you can purchase spool pins and replacement cartridges from several online sources, including eBay, and some Babylock Dealers sell them (the Babylock and Brother cartidges are interchangeable). I have the same machine, and I always keep an extra cartridge around. I can thread the extra spool while the other is sewing. When the machine stops for a color change, I just insert the extra cartridge with the next color, then thread up the empty cartridge for the next color. Speeds up your embroidery alot. 
On Google, type in Brother Thread Cassette - you'll get lots of hits, and you should be able to find a cartridge for about $10.00.
If you have and other readers have time to rate my answer (good or bad), your rating helps me determine whether I understand your problem.
If you have more details about your problem or have additional questions, please feel free to comment. I can send you the instructions for threading the cartridge and installing the spool pin if your manual is missing. Just submit a comment - and I'll help anyway I can.
Cheers, Ginny

Threading with the auto cartridge

make sure that the thread is you have the thread cap on? I've had this problem and it is usually corrected if the thread doesn't have any play inside of the cassette.
