I was sewing with my Brother and it got stuck- whenever I tried to sew, a whole bunch of bobbin thread made a mess underneath the material and pulled until the bobbin thread broke.

Make sure you have cleaned out all the thread pieces in the bobbin area and it is clean.

Install a brand new needle.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Set the top tension to the midway point and test your machine. Adjust the top tension until both threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

My Brother HE 1 will not feed the top thread. When I embroider, the thread never comes off of the spool. I have rethreaded the needle, it is correctly threaded.

I don't have this particular machine, but have you made sure that you are threading correctly? I would completely remove your upper thread and put on a fresh needle. Also, whenever you do make a thread change, be sure and cut the thread at the spool on top and then pull the thread from the bottom (needle area) This will help prevent any fraying in the thread path that you can't get too easily. If this isn't an embroidery only one, try just sewing first so you will know if it feeds. It it does work in sewing mode, some machines are picky about thread. Here is a link for the path:

My mb4 is stitching designs off centered and when i started the machine it hit the hoop and broke the needle. i replaced the needle but now the thread keeps breaking?

Remove the thread and rethread. Usually, thread breakage occurs when the thread is not following the thread path. However, there could be other reasons:

Thread keeps coming out of the right hand side needle as I am over-locking. Could you advise what the problem could be? Thanks

May be threaded incorrectly or not seated in the tension disk.

Best course is to remove all the thread from the machine.

RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning making sure each thread is threaded in proper order and that each thread sequence follows the manual.

When threading each tension disk, grasp the thread between the thread tree and the tension disk with one hand and with the other hand grasp the thread below the tension disk and give it a little tug to make sure it seats properly.

Be sure to pull the thread tails under the presser foot and toward the back of the machine before beginning to stitch.

Remove the thread completely and rethread the machine from the beginning. Be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread.

I broke a needle and tried to replace both needles. Now I can't get my machine to chain. I have rethreaded it, and replaced the needles, closely following the manual and threading guide but still

it's possible that when the needle broke it could have caused the
machine to jump time and would need to be serviced to see if it
needs adjustment.

The bottom thread is all tangled. I have

Hi! This is the machine I use (mostly) and I've found it really doesn't like lint. I brush out lint every few hours and it has made a huge difference in how my machine sews. I suspect your machine may be as sensitive to lint as my is, so give her a really good cleaning. Then, rethread (yes, I know you've done that already, but do it again, for grins.) everything. Pay careful attention to the way the bobbin thread comes off the bobbin (from left to right) when you rethread. If you usually use the automatic bobbin pickup, don't. Pick up the bobbin thread the regular way, and, holding the top thread and bobbin thread securely in your left hand, start to sew.
I sure hope this helps!
Please let me know if this works, ok?
