I just bought an Ellisimo a few weeks ago. Just got time to start using it recently It made 2 designs ok and after and it has been having persistent thread nests on bottom of fabric along with the loud noise of needle jamming into the bobbin.I have removed the bobbin needle plate and cleaned all around it it still doesn't work. Also I noticed embroidering T shirt material is like pulling your hair out.It jams all the time. I have tried stiff material same issue Anyone else with same issues and anything I can do about it without taking it to the dealer? I have been using stiff stabilizer below and water soluble on top

NOW is the time for the dealer to give the machine a once over at no charge.

Try sewing and if this is also a mess, the timing is off and service is required.

Call ahead to see if you can wait while it is being repaired and save a second trip for pick-up.

First of all, you have a great machine and it could be a simple hiccup with it or maybe the way you are stabilizing your material. When you are embroidering on your tshirt material, you say you are using stiff stabilizer and a water soluble top. I'm not saying this is totally your issue, but you should be using a stabilizer for knits, such as Sulky's Soft 'N Sheer. Heavy cutaways and tearaways won't really work with knits. The Soft 'N Sheer (or no-show poly mesh as it is commonly known) is sturdy enough for the stitching, but very soft to lay with knit fabric well. You can buy it as an iron on or regular and use a little 505 spray to adhere it to the fabric. You really don't need any topper unless you are doing fleece, towels or anything that is "lofty" and where the stitches will sink.

However, it seems like there might be something more going on with the machine. Have you changed your needle? Have you taken the bobbin case out and cleaned that as well as the area inside the bobbin? If you're hearing that the needle is jamming or striking the bobbin, it is possible your machine is out of time.

Have you tried sewing regularly with the machine? I would try that first and do a some straight stitching as well as zig-zag and some decorative. If you're having issues with those, then it's definitely time to take it in.

Hate to say this but I would be willing to bet your bobbin case is trashed. The tech where I work says most thread shredding and nests are caused by nicked up bobbin cases. Inspect yours under magnification. Also, go into settings and make sure your EMBROIDERY foot height is at 1.5--this info was in a technical service bulletin we got at the store.

It may be just the bobbin you are using.... have you tried a different one?

My embroidery will jam up with a thread nest on the bottom when I downsize the design too much. The stitching is too close. Try enlarging the design and see if it still happens.
