I have a 190D, like your 180D made in Taiwan. No thread cutter on mine, just have to cut it with the scissors that came with the machine. So I am not surprised the 180D has none either. But it is a nice workhorse and embroiders well.
Oh thank you mops! I suspected as much, but wasnt sure since all the screw holes are there, and w/o knowing , it would have been a loss if I had bought the cutter. I guess Bro added that with the PE200, cause I even have a cutter button on the display in addition to auto. I reaally appreciate your info.. I actually bought the 180 for parts (to replace the LCD screen that I posted here showing the dark half) But this 180D is so pristine and sews so nicely, maybe I will store Snoopy for now.
Hi there. I think you will be able to buy Disney designs from ibroidery.com using the machine's serial number since it's a Brother Disney machine. Only Brother machine owners can buy these designs. Be sure to get the owners manual download from Brother.com. have a great time with your new toy, Carol
This machine has Disney designs & I have 2 ULT machines that are Disney..but I have no need as I have no little ones. I am now a 5 emb machine owner! I have a real addiction to all sewing related items LOL
I became a Bernina Gal when I was 19 with 3 embroidery machines, a serger and 3 sewing machines. Isn't it fun ? I never lack for anything to do in retirement. It's great !
Surely a great buy! If you have a Brother already why not just call the dealer and ask about the thread cutter on this model--I"d be up front with them and say how excited you were to find such a great machine,etc. and they will probably tell you.
Hmmm, here is a page from the manual...last item on troubleshoot is about thread cutter not cutting correctly...maybe it will help...
Yes, that is only place thread cutter is mentioned. No button for manual cutting, no mention in 'on screen' instructions...and there is no cutter under the needle plate. If only I knew the cutting would be auto, I would add the cutter. THX for looking it up--that is the manual I have--also have the parts/service manual. Can't find any part other than replacement blade.
I don't know this model, but to me, it seems if it had a thread cutter, you would have a button, with the scissors symbol.That was an earlier model and maybe before cutters, you think?
