Question about Brother Sewing Machines
My machine is about 35 yrs old and has not been used in a long time. It says it is a BROTHER Pacesetter, Super full automatic. I have oiled it and cleaned the bobbin area. It was sewing just fine for a couple days. I do not have my manuel so I possible have not oiled all the correct spots. What is causing my machine to jam? Thankyou, Debbie Albaugh.

I think you need to push the bobbin winder (with your bobbin on it) towards the handwheel. Press the foot pedal and it should begin winding. If this doesn't solve your problem, post back with more details of what you've done and the kind of problem you are having.
As a last resort, go to Sears and let them show you how to wind a bobbin.

You are adjusting the bobbin the wrong way, first make sure the top tension is about 4 or 5, slacken the bobbin tension off about a quarter of a turn at a time until you can just pul;l the thread through with slight resistence

the tension on the bobbin case needs to be adjusted to needle size and type of fabric the medium fabrics usually use a size 11, light fabrics need a size 9 and heavy like ( corduroy denim or upholstery fabric needs a 14 or 16 Heavy fabrics need a little less tension on the top side so it will feed properly just play with it until it looks good on a scrap of the same fabric
