Cons:
Poor Quality, Add A Con, Hard To Find The Part

the bobbin case easy come off from alignment, easy to chip and hard to find. buyers of this SEQS6000 sewing machine should buy spare bobbin cases. I ordered from 3 companies bobbin cases for this sewing machine. One sent me a bobbin for xl 400 which does not fit my SEQS 6000 and the other 2 are having problems ordering it from Singer Co. Until now almost 2 months ago I was not able to finish my project because I have not received my orders yet. And as a small business owner it was announce to my customers that the cause of the delay of their orders is because singer co. can not produce the bobbin case for my machine so I too can finish their orders. I make personalized bags.

Cons:
Poor Quality, Unreliable, Poor Design For Hoop Sensors.

I was so exited to finally get a new machine after 25 years with a small sewing machine. The take up on the machine isn't smooth and the bobbin case gets grooves too easily. Embroidery was tricky at first, then ma Hine wouldn't recognize the hoops so I had to send it to an authorized service center. Got it back and saw they replaced sensors for the hoops. After two small projects, the same problem. It seems the sensors are out again. It will have now cost me over 200.00 in shipping g to repair a machine I have had less than 9 months. Went with the Singer over other brands because of name. Big mistake. Can't imagine what this will cost when warranty runs out. I thought this machine was a good value. Not so much.

Pros:
When Machine Nd Program Cooperate Designs Can He Fun
Cons:
Poor Quality, Complicated, Poor Poor Customer Service I Have Contacted Customer Service 5 Times

I purchased this machine 5 months ago and its already in for servicing because of a sensor. Which is under warranty as long as you pay to get it to one of the few approved shops. You have to string the thread using a makeshift thread stand or else the thread will continue to break. Nesting bobbins continual problems. Continual problems when trying to use small hoop

Not worth the price, the threads keeps breaking and now the embroidery is not embroidering in the lines. Can not find anyone to work on them.

Great Machine but a very steep learning curve!

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features
Cons:
Complicated, Steep Learning Curve

I purchased what was supposed to be the XL400 from Amazon and what I received was the SEQS6000. Today I can say I love my machine. But it was a rough start. My machine came from the factory with issues. It was not until I had an Authorized Svc Ctr do a warranty repair on it that I am finally able to enjoy this machine. Thanks to a group on FB I learned everything I needed to know about what to do and what NOT to do. They are very sensitive machines and require a steep learning curve. Many of my problems in the beginning were USER ERROR!!!! Like always raise the presser foot when threading the machine, Hold the thread tail when starting out to prevent nesting underneath and several other tips that make this machine sing like a bird. I am looking forward to buying another machine soon like the XL580!
