FAQs & Troubleshooting
How do I set the bobbin?
Install the bobbin wound with thread. You can begin sewing immediately without pulling up the bobbin thread by simply inserting the bobbin in the bobbin case and guiding the thread through the slit in the needle plate cover.
If the threads will be pulled to create gathers or the thread at the beginning of sewing will be finished, for example, when free motion quilting, first pull up the bobbin thread. For details, refer to “How do I pull up the bobbin thread?”.
Be sure to hold down the bobbin with your finger and unwind the bobbin thread correctly, otherwise the thread may break or the thread tension will be incorrect.
By guiding the thread around the tab of the needle plate cover, passing the thread as shown by 2 in this illustration, then lightly pulling the thread at 3, the thread will enter the tension spring of the bobbin case to apply the appropriate tension to the bobbin thread during sewing.
Be sure to complete the bobbin threading correctly according to these instructions. If the thread is simply placed in the slit in the needle plate cover, the bobbin thread will not be correctly threaded, resulting in poor sewing performance or incorrect thread tension.
You can begin sewing without pulling up the bobbin thread. If you wish to pull up the bobbin thread before starting to sew, pull up the thread according to the procedure in “How do I pull up the bobbin thread? ”.
