I have had my F600 for a little over a year and love it.
Suddenly, though I'm having a problem where the first few stitches create a tiny thread nest or small loops. After this, the stitch is perfect.

I tried cleaning the bobbin area, changing the needle and retreading 1/2 a dozen times. Occasionally, I can get it to where it doesn't happen, but then it starts again.

Any ideas?? I'd appreciate any help. It drives me a bit nuts although you can't really see it in the finished item.

If you use the thread cutter and don't hold your thread tail when you start stitching this can happen.

I wonder why it just started happening, but didnt before. That seems like a defect if that's it. I will try holding the thread back tomorrow. Does the type of thread male a difference? Thank you.

Have you had your machine serviced? If you have sewn a lot and have had it a year, it's probably time for a servicing - you may have a teenie piece of thread caught down in the bobbin area somewhere that you can't see in what we can remove from our machines. Who knows. In any case it will have enough fluffs for a cleaning.

Hello, no I haven't taken it in. I haven't used it a whole lot. Even though ive had it a year, i probably have used it 6 times up until now. But I probably will have to take it in...

I tried not using the automatic threader and pulling the threads behind and it made no difference. I still got a small thread nest. Some rows worse than others.

It is only the first 2-3 stitches...

I wonder if it could be the thread. This is 30 wt 100% cotton Coats & Clark machine quilting thread. I had never used it before but thought I would try it..

I saw some others that had this issue and I wondered if they solved it. If nothing I try works, I will take it in.

Thank you!

It could be the thread, change it out and see if it is happening still. If it is probably is something wrong in the threading or perhaps your bobbin has lint in it. HTH.

it happens on mine too. didn't for the first wee while, but after a while it started doing it.

I am worried about having it serviced, because if I remember rightly when I bought it, the dealer said something about not needing to oil it. And the only dealer is at the other end of the country. Im hoping maybe I can find a repair manual, and give it to the local service tech

It may well be the thread as the 30wt is thicker than the normal 50wt sewing thread.

With the presser foot down, adjust the tension to a lower number and try again.

You may also need a larger needle.

The lower the thread number the thicker the thread; the higher the needle number the larger the needle.

Thank you. That's interesting about the thread numbers. I didn't know 30 was heavier..
Today I am going to try different thread and I'm hoping that's the issue. I will post here about it. I appreciate everyone's comments.
