1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / brother sewing machine CE4000 bobbin case help on: May 28, 2008 12:53:59 PM
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-

...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:

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
