Hi, I have a brother nx600 and the bottom thread is very taught and straight and does not seem to intertwine with the top thread properly and pulls straight out when pulled on .I cannot find my manula to troubleshoot the problem, was hoping there would be some useful advice here !

Sounds like the upper tension needs to be tightened, or the bobbin thread needs to be loosened. At any rate, the tension is correct when the two threads meet in the middle of the fabric for general sewing.
For free motion quilting, the tension should be adjusted so that the bobbin thread does not show on the top of the fabric, however, it should not lay in a straight line like it sounds like it may appear currently. What you are currently producing is a gathering stitch where the bobbin thread can be easily pulled.
You might have Thread particles build up. Puchase canned Air for electronis and use it on a regular basic to clean your bobbin case area. Also when you change threads color always clip your thread near the spool and pull your thread out from the bottom near your needle. When you pull your thread through the top little pieces of the thread break of and fall into the chamber of your embroidery machine .
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.
I suspect you have not threaded it correctly. Try re-threading both top and bottom threads. If this does not solve it then the tension may need adjusting. Upper too tight or lower bobbin too loose. A blunt needle can cause strange problems too, try changing it to see.

Hi, general rule of thumb:: loops on the top, problem on the bottom.. Loops on the bottom, problem is on the top.. When threading your machine, stop just before you thread your needle, put the presser foot down. Try pulling the thread. If it pulls easily, the thread is not thru the tension wheel right. If it pulls hard, you got it right.
