Automatic Thread Cutters…problem.

IDsweetpea | Posted in Machine Embroidery on

I have a Brother sewing machine.  A ULT2002D.  Something has gone wrong with my auto thread cutter.  When embroidering, the sew out gets to a color stop, cuts the thread, I put in the new color…and the needle will not grab the bobbin thread.  It acts like the cutters are cutting the bobbin thread too short.  I have to remove the hoop, take out the bobbin and reinsert and rethread it.  I have taken the machine apart, cleaned everything, top and bottom, new needle, new bobbin thread and new top thread.  I just can not figure this out.  Can anyone help me?

    I know how frustrating that can be.  Although I had the reverse problem with my D1.  I took it into my dealer and he really blasted the thing with canned air (which I had always been told was a big no no) then it worked with no problem.  I would say if this just started happening that there may be something messed up with it.  But if this has always done this or it is a fairly new machine then I would call the dealers attention to it ASAP and get it straightened out.

      Just an update.  As i stated above, my thread cutter was cutting the thread so short that the bobbin thread was not being picked up by the top needle.  This caused me to have to take my hoop off the machine after each color stop and pull the thread up by hand or turn off the thread cutter.  I discovered that it was not cutting the thread at all, more like shredding it.  Well, after trying to get help from everyone I could think off and taking the machine apart six times, cleaning etc., my DH put the blade of a screw driver under the cutter and pushed down on the cutter...thereby slightly bending it.  That seemed to be the problem...presto it is fixed.  I am guesing that when I broke a needle on an extremely dense design, that it somehow bent the cutter?  Anyway, it is functioning properly!  Thank you for your input.
