hello, smart people!
i have a question about my brother ce-4000 sewing machine
it's a top-loader

aaaaand it's sick!

the bobbin case is not catching on the spring as it is supposed to. i wish it would look like step three in this picture:

but the shuttle is too far away from the spring by a millimeter or two.

the shuttle is spinning around backwards!
i hope i'm missing something very obvious, but i can't think of anything else to do!
thanks!

so, i went and checked to see if the bobbin was going the right way and, lo and behold, sewing machine is being nice again!

i don't know why it started working again... perhaps something got jostled back into place during its journey from dining room to bed room

whatever happened, i am happy about it!
yet i feel a bit (a lot) silly for posting a nonexistent problem

oh well

thanks, angeltreats, for the advice Smiley

i have a CE4000 that looks similar to that one and i have enjoyed it so far...
my favorite part about it is that it stitches as slowly and smoothly as you want

yepyep

so, my machine is being mean and i don't know how to make it nice again...
what's happening is this- the bobbin thread is getting tangled in the case thing and isn't catching on the upper thread

by the way, the bobbin works like that one-
http://cdn.overstock.com/images/products/L11082569.jpg

...it loads from the top and doesn't have a case that you have to remove when you put the bobbin in like on the sideways old school ones

i fiddled around with it and it seems like the top thread is getting looped around by the hook, but is getting stuck between the projection and spring


the blue part of the last picture is where the lower thread is getting caught:
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/NR/rdonlyres/2AF42085-47C8-4B01-8BFD-40A222F1DF01/11877/91.jpg


not sure what to do- have any ideas?
thanks in advance  Smiley



...by the way, i had been sewing over sequins and fur... don't know if that would have messed it up any...
also, i checked to make sure i was using the correct size of bobbin and correct needle...
i also changed the needle and cleaned out the bobbin lint Smiley lots and lots
and i rethreaded a bunch

and i had been sewing on it like 12 hours before...


hmm
mysterious


k thanks
Smiley
