The bottom thread is broken
Take out the bottom bobbin, clean the bobbin case, put in the bobbin and rethread it.

If that doesn't work - replace the bobbin with a new one.

We must say that since we started using pre-wound bobbins, we are no longer bothered by broken bottom threads. Obviously, the factory wound bobbins are much better than the ones we wound ourselves. 

In conclusion, we have come to the conclusion that using pre-wound bobbins is better, cheaper and more enjoyable.

We have a lot of pre-wound bobbins in stock. 

Broken needles
Broken needles are caused by the same reasons as broken threads. However, in the case of a broken thread, first follow these steps.

Remove the embroidery bandage and see what is happening on the back side. You should not see any loops (knots) in the embroidery thread. If you do see a knot - carefully remove the section of embroidery where the knotted thread is, then rewind and make up the embroidery.

If the embroidery pattern is too dense, it can also lead to broken stitches. This often happens with photo embroidery and incorrect lace embroidery. To solve this problem, try using a finer embroidery needle, and if that doesn't work - only avoid such thick, dense patterns. 

Stitches "sinking" into the fabric
Always use a water-soluble lining as a top lining to prevent stitches from sinking into fabrics with "sinking" type fabrics such as terrycloth, wool, fur, velvet, corduroy, sweatshirts and knitwear. 

It's easy - you just cut a piece of hydrosol lining, lay it on the embroidery base fabric, and start embroidering. After embroidering, a large piece of excess water-soluble lining can be removed and the residue can be dissolved in warm water. 

The machine makes a loud noise
Stop the machine immediately and check your flower pattern, maybe the stitches are too dense or the facing thread is too loose and causing knots.

Remove the bobbin core and bobbin shell and sweep them with a small brush. You can even vacuum out the threads.

Your machine may need to be oiled - follow the instructions for your machine to do so. If you are not sure if the machine should be oiled - check the instructions as well. If you need to refuel, the manual will tell you.

If the above does not solve the problem - do not continue embroidering and contact your supplier for help. 

Equipment problems
If your machine suddenly does something strange, such as only half of the pattern is embroidered in one place and the other half in another place, or if it does not embroider as designed - first turn off the machine completely.

Remove the embroidery bandage, and if your embroidery frame is still moving - remove the frame too!

Let your machine rest for 10 minutes.

Put the frame back and make sure there is enough room to move it in all directions.

Turn on the machine and try embroidering again.
