SOURCE: janoneDc3018 thread bunches up .

Are you using heavy thread for the top stitching? If so you will need to tighten the top tension. You would think if it is thicker thread that you would need to loosen the top tension but you have to tighten it to help pull it up through the fabric. If you use heavy thread in the bobbin you would have to loosen the bobbin tension. Check and make sure the thread is seated in the top tension and make sure there is no lint in the tension disc. It is definitely a tension issue. Hope this helps.

After hearing a noise and oiling the machine the bobbin thread becomes tangled up inside the bobbin houseing unit


Check the tension setting on the bobbin case. If it is too loose, the thread can spool out too fast/ Use good quality thread. Ensure the thread path has bee followed correctly.
Good luck

Machine is showingE6


The motor locked up because the thread is tangled. Remove the tangled thread before continuing the operation.Clean the bobbin case to remove the tangled thread. After cleaning the bobbin case, insert the bobbin case properly. If the needle is bent or broken, replace the needle.Then, thread the upper thread properly, and continue the operation.

The macine said it was an E6 error thread jam which I completely cleaned the bobbin area (not much there anyway) but I still cannot get it to not jam the thread on the botom. I have changed needles also.


Hello

This code tells you that the motor locked up because the thread is tangled. Untangle the thread, make sure the machine is threaded properly and that the proper tension is set before continuing.

It could be that the bobbin is being put in upside down check to make sure that you do not need a bobbin with a magnet on one side. also make sure there is no thread tangled inside the bobbin housing it will cause the timing of the machine to be off and cause issues with your needle picking up the bobbin and thus cause a mess inside you bobbin housing

What causes the thread onthe under side of my machine sewn project to bunch up and become tangled?


Make sure before you close the bobbin case, that the whole piece of thread is pulled out and put towards the back of the machine, if its bunching up dont worry about it, it might just be the way the machine is. But if it is causing problems while sewing then check the bobbin thread is not tangled inside :) Hope i helped

I keep getting an E6 error message - tangled thread. I think it's the bobbin thread that's getting tangled, and I can't figure out why, or how to fix it. Any ideas?

Thread breaks


Hi!

Check to see if the lower thread be tangled. Also, the bobbin could be threaded improperly in the shuttle hook. Rethread the bobbin in the shuttle hook.
How to detangle a thread---

  • When a machine stops operation due to tangled thread, do not turn the pulley by force.
    If the pulley is turned by force then, lower thread might not be picked up correctly and stitches might not be formed correctly.

  • If threads get tangled, remove a needle plate and cut the tangled threads by scissors or cutter.
  • Do rate the solution if you find it helpful & useful.

    Thanks

    The bobbin string gets tangled in a big mess and jams the machine


    adjust the thread tightness. thread tension might be loose enough. be sure also the the bobbin inside the machine is place correctly! reversed placement would result in bigger mess.
