Brother xr-65 bobbin problem

I have a brother xr-65 sewing machine and the bobbin will not stay in its proper position. When I sew the bobbin moves and the thread gathers in one spot. How can I keep the bobbin from moving around and be in its proper position. I have lost my manual.

I had the same problem and I found out that it was because I was not using Brother bobbins...I was buying the replacements that looked the same from Joanns and I guess the ones they require are a little bit taller...once I bought the right replacements...everything has been fine. Hope that helps. The model number for the correct bobbins is SA156...get froma local dealer or online retailer.

Mine does the same thing with the cheap plastic bobbins. I switched to the metal bobbins and no more issue!

I can not thread a bobbin to save my life. Help.


first, google your sewing machines name and model number and "manual" or "users guide" and you can find the link to the PDF download. Here is what I found:

1 Raise the needle to its highest position by turning the balance whell toward you (counterclockwise) and raise the presserfoot lever. Slide the button and open cover.
2 insert the bobbin so the thread comes out in a clockwise direction. Use bobbins intended for this machine. !CAUTION! Be sure the bobbin is set so the thread unrols in the correct direction. If the thread unrolls in the wrong direction, it may cause the thread tension to be incorrect or the needle to break.
3 Hold the thread end, push the bobbin down with your finger, and pass the thread securely through the thread cutting groove.
4 Replce the bobbin cover. Place the left tab in place then press lightly on the right side until the cover clicks into place. *insert the cover so that the end of the thread comes out from the back of the cover.

good luck and G.Bless!

Bobbin tangles on Brother xr 65


This was happening to me too, I reversed the bobbin feeds and it has not tangled since then. I was orignally feeding the bobbin from the left side and now i feed the thread from the right. It works great this way.

This happened to me too! Make sure your buttonholer isn't pulled down and locked in to where it's making the machine sew backward. That's what happened to me.
