Deco 600 with a bad problem
My used (new to me) Deco 600 has developed a problem, and I'm 120 miles one way from the dealer.
The top thread just leaves lots of loops on the bottom of the fabric and then balls up and makes a knot. It started out with a needle breaking, and I have no idea why.
I took the bobbin holder out to get the broken needle out. I also cleaned out the lint very good at that time.
I'm sure the bobbin holder is installed correctly, but it keeps leaving loops from the top thread on the bottom of the fabric until it balls up and then it breaks the needle.
Then when I try to pull the fabric from the machine, it is caught and won't pull out. It has a lot of threads coming out the bobbin hole which I have to wiggle in there and cut before the fabric will release. It almost seems like the bobbin thread is being caught and held for some unknown reason, as it ends up sewing in the same place and pulling the fabric at the last before the needle breaks.
Does anyone have a clue to fixing the problem?
