Question about Singer 2662

1 Answer

A horrible tangle

Recently (I think it first started happening after I hit a straight pin), there seems to be a problem with the thread getting caught down around the bobbin casing of my Singer 2662. I've changed out the needle, used a different bobbin, taken it apart, made sure nothing was jammed up, tried adjusting the tension, etc. Nothing seems to work--after about 2 stitches, both the bobbin and top thread get caught up in a horrible tangle, creating a huge knot and jamming the works. It's almost as if the top thread is getting caught up in the hook race, somehow. Any suggestions?

    Same problem, exactly. By the third stitch it completely jammed up. I've taken it all apart and can't find anything.

    Same problem any ideas?

    After only a couple of stitches the machine makes a clunking noise and then jams. I'm not a very experienced seamstress. I have tried adjusting the settings but it doesn't seem to help. Any suggestions on what I should try?

This is a bit late, could the bobbin case not be seated properly? You need to put it into place and then turn it clockwise until it seats soundly in the opening. Also, check for burrs...the needle may have left a rough mark on the plastic or metal in the bobbin area. A piece of batting, or even an old knee hi should snag on any rough areas.

How do I reassemble drop-in bobbin case for Brothers XL 2600 free arm?

Do you have some pictures of the area involved. I know how to put these things back but I can't think how to explain it to you.. pics might help me show you.

Brother has an outstanding service department, and if you don't have a manual, they should have one. Should have a pic of how it goes together.

Showing E6

You receive the error message E6 when the motor locked up because thread is tangled or the machine is seizing up.

Remove the tangled thread, it it still happens that means your machine is seizing and requires service.

Bobbin does not sew: the upper thread gets tangles underneath but the bobbin thread is not involved

bird nesting indicates that the needle thread tension is not tight enough
pull the thread out as if threading the needle and the tension is close when there is resistance to pulling the thread

Model 12741 Kenmore isn't catching bobin thread.

Most likely, when the needle hit the pin, the machine was knocked out of time. First thing, be sure to install a brand new needle. If that doesn't improve things, you'll probably need to take it for service.

Avoid sewing over pins. Accidents happen, but it's best to pull pins before the needle gets to the pin. The other helpful hint may be placing the pin parallel with the seam edge and placed further away so the presser foot will pass by the pin.

The straight stitch looks fine on top, but underneath it's all tangled and looks horrible. And the thread gets tangled beneath the bobbin and "E6" appears very often when I am sewing. It is very...

do you have the foot down? if not your getting whats called a birdsnest just put the foot down and then press on the peddal and then there should be no more knots ( by foot I mean the metal part that goes over your material and the needle goes through)

Jammed thread.

To address my needle thread tangling (horribly) in the bobbin compartment, I rethreaded the bobbin. I cleaned the bobbin and the feeder feet, I changed the bobbin and the thread. I changed the tension on the needle thread and the bobbin thread. NO FIX! Then, I changed the needle - the problem was fixed instantly. I sewed awhile and then put the original needle back in. No problem. I think perhaps that the problem is being caused by the needle getting out of alignment somehow during sewing. If you are having the same issue, try it. It can't hurt!

Thread get's tangled and attached to plate while embroidering

Just a thought. Is it possible that your thread is wrapping around your spool post or snagging on your thread spool?

First 5 stitches my thread tabgles

I believe it is recommended to hold each thread until the stitching gets started, see your manual. I make sure the slack is removed from each thread just before putting the presser foot down, then just put a finger on the threads, clamping them between your finger and the sewing bed, until a few stitches are done. This can be done through the material being sewed.

Thread getting caught underneath

you need to replace your shukle that holds the tread bobbing below.it is either slack or broken . if it is slack then you tighten the little screw that holds a cover that gives the thread tension .if its broken then replace it.once the thread is slack below it will cause your thread to bundle up.
