You have your bobbin inserted into the machine spinning in the wrong direction. take the bobbin out and flip it over and wind around needle plate guide and cut. Look at the little pictogram on the plastic part of the machines throat plate. It shows which direction the thread should spin off the spool when you drop the top loading bobbin into the bobbin case.
if it's losing power, you have a short in the machine.....if the stitches are jamming, you need to switch thread type. Many standard machines cannot function with the lightweight polyester threads ( especially the large spools made for sergers) so I recommend using coats and clark dual duty. ....make sure you have the same size thread on the top as you do on your bobbin....hope this helps
I have the same machine and love it. Sometimes if the thread is old that will happen to me. And also I spray the thread with static guard before i thread the machine in dry cold weather. Since you said you are an embroiderer I assume you are using the same weight thread top and bottom. The other thing that causes that on my machine is if there is a nick on the spool of thread I am using and the thread catches just a little as it comes off the spool. I use a fine nail file and smooth off the edge where the little v is to reattach the thread when you are finish using it. I never use them. You do sew a little and cut off the tail off the top thread before you let it go through the rest of design. I hope you have found the solution but I learned these tricks while having the same problem as you.
I'm not sure which thread you are referring to, its either the bobbin thread (under) or the needle thread (above.top) I'm sure you can find some helpful advise here on the baby lock site http://www.babylock.com/support/faq/?FAQ=10
Have you looked at
your manual or bought the more expensive machine book from your dealer? I wasn't happy at the addtional cost at the time (I spent $2200 US that day) BUT I have
found my book for my Evolve a VERY good investment (70 bucks, but worth
every penny these past 2 years!) You may find the same for your Ellure.
Baby Lock have very good cust.
service either on the web or right at your dealer. Most dealers will
give free lessons upon your request. I hope this helped, PS I'm a bit jealous.... I REALLY wanted that machine too! Happy Sewing and Good luck with your baby!
Sounds like you have to take off the throat plate and clean out threads under it. Sometime they ball up and prevent the needle from going down and catching the bobbin thread. You can't see themuntil you take off the plate. Follow the directions. It is easy.
