Question about Brother CS-6000

Tangled thread on wrong side. The thread on the

Tangled thread on wrong side. The thread on the wrong side of my fabric keeps getting tangled. The ONLY time it gets tangled is when I try to sew a top stitch in a curved section. The rest of the time it sews just fine. Why would my thread only tangle around curves on the top stitch? Occasionally (rarely) it will not tangle if I am going super fast, but then my top stitch isn't as nice looking.

I'm guessing it is because the tension is not just right, the bobbin might not be the right size, the thread type top and Botton might not be the same, or you just might need put in a new needle the right size.

SOURCE: The straight stitch looks fine on top, but

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)

SOURCE: Hi, I would sew , up

re-thread the entire machine. Pay special attention to the take-up lever and the tension assembly.


Always have the presser foot in the UP position when threading the machine. This opens the tension disc to allow the thread to nestle inside the assembly.

Make sure the thread passes through the take up lever

Make sure you inserted the thread in every thread guide


I always recommend a sharp needle. You may not notice any slight bends, burrs or dullness in the needle which would throw off the timing and the stitch quality.


SPOOL CAP - If you have a horizontal spool pin a spool cap is very important. Its also very important the spool cap covers the end of the spool of thread but make sure its not too big or it will throw off the thread tension.


TOP TENSION DIAL - The setting should be between 3 and 5 on most machines.


The best way to know if you threaded the tension assembly correctly is to put the presser foot in the DOWN position. Now take the thread from the right of the tension assembly and pull. Is there tension on the thread or does it pull out very easily? If it pulls out easily you threaded it incorrectly. Try it again

also check under the needle plate for lint

and in the bobbin case area for lint or loose threads

SOURCE: trying to sew light indoor outdoor material

What size needle are you using? You should be using at least a #14 or #16. A #11 is too light duty. Try that and see if it doesn't make a difference.

SOURCE: Threads tangled in the wrong side of fabric when sewing?

This means your tension is incorrect. That circle with numbers about the needle is typically set at three. If not, start there and experiment number by number until your threads are equally taut on both sides.

I keep getting error E6 on Brothers CS 6000i- I cleaned the thread several times and when I try to restart sewing it happens again. I've removed the bobbin and re-threaded and it keep jammin and beeping....


The motor locked up because the thread is tangled.
Solution:
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.

My bobbing thread keeps jamming


Make sure you are putting the bobbin in right side up. Some times it will do this if your needle size is incorrect to the fabric weight.

Top thread tangled in bobbin.


try changing the needle---flat side goes to the back side of the machine
also check the top tension
depending on the fabric your sewing on--the needle & thread have to work
with the fabric--example light fabric needs a different needle & thread than
a heavy fabric
check to see if the thread is coming off the thread take up lever when you
sew.

Threads keep getting tangled when I try to serge. Happens everytime I tried to re-thread it, it bunches up when I serge.


If you mean the threads get tangled behind the presser foot then maybe this can help. Try pulling the threads gently as you guide the fabric through the first time. Also, I sometimes put a scrap piece of fabric under the presser foot with the edge lined up with the needles (so it is further back than normal). Then I gently press the speed control foot and pull on the threads. This allows the needles to start sewing right away on the fabric rather than giving the thread a chance to get tangled. Hope that helps!

Thread tangled in the bobine


I had this same problem yesterday. I took apart the needle tension casing and now it doesn't get tangled or stop. The only thing is the bobbin is not sewing...it looks fine on the top, but the bottom is just loose loops.
