Question about Baby Lock Ellure

Open Question

Babylock Pro Line BL 6150

I am quilting a baby panel and my machine started knotting/tangling the thread underneath the material. I took the bobbin case out and cleaned and rethreaded everything, but now it is making a clicking noise even without the bobbin case installed, but when I thread it and start to sew my machine locks up and the thread tangles. How can I fix this?

Thanks for any help.

Either the thread is not in the take up lever or it is not in the tension. Rethread the machine. Raise the presser foot and pull on the thread between the tension and take up. It should be loose. Lower the presser foot, pull on the thread between the tension and take up lever. It should be tighter. Make sure the thread is in the slot of the take up lever and pulled to the front of the lever.

Your bobbin is not wound correctly. Check and see if your bobbin thread is wound to loose or unbalanced.

SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread

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.

SOURCE: 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.

Ruffler foot bobbin tangles


I suspect that the bobbin thread you are talking about is in fact the top thread that has been pulled under the material, make sure that the top thread is pulled into the tention discs firmly and that there is no fuzz in with the thread, also make sure the top thread is properly threaded and is actually in the take up bar .

Bobbin thread tangled


Try these suggestions and see if they help
1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed
2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide
3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case
4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads
6. Check to make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
7. Make sure the bobbin case is correctly in the machine,, if it's a top loading bobbin you may need to have the bobbin case checked to see if it's damaged or see if the hook and hook race has a problem
8. Also could be a timing problem, and the machine would need to be checked.

Started machine quilting; first pass went just fine, rolled up quilted portion, then started machine again but the bobbin thread broke and continues to break. Took out bobbin, reset it in case, etc. N


from what you said about the bobbin thread continues to break
check for burrs in the following area--even the smallest burr can cause problems
bobbin
bobbin case
needle plate
needle could be damaged
or bad thread

First the top tension started being loose, so I changed the tension different ways and tried to fix it...now the thread is getting all tangled up under the fabric and is locking up. Also giving me the E6...


Do you mean the stitching on the top of the work was loose? If so, you should check the bobbin tension. Make sure you have the thread pulled under the tension plate or spring on the bobbin case. Tension should be just enough that you can suspend the bobbin in the case by the thread (think yo-yo). Upper tension should be tighter than lower. Make sure you put the presser foot down.

Worked great until the needle broke and now the bobbin thread bunches up


Hello

Clean out the bobbin area if there are any thread tangles there.

If the bobbin does not fit snugly into the bobbin case, then get new bobbins. You need class A or 15 and they do not cost very much. Make sure they are plastic and not metal.

Refer to the maintenance section of the manual - see the configuration of the bobbin case and shuttle race? The bobbin case as an extending arm and the race a notch. When inserting the bobbin case into the shuttle, turn the handwheel so the needle is at it's highest position. Then lift the lever on the back of the bobbin case and insert the cast into the shuttle, arm pointing straight up toward the bed of the sewing machine.

Now thread the machine with the presser foot up - always - and see if the tangling stops.


There should be a tension setting for your bobbin thread, as well as your top thread. It sounds to me like your bobbin tension setting is not in sync with your top thread.

most common solution to this is to remove the top thread completely from machine and re thread it with the presser foot UP not down. This will allow the top thread to engage properly in the top tension disc
