CLICK AND GRIND IN 270D BROTHER SEWNG MACHINE

While sewing, as the needle sews I hear a knock, every time the needle enter the material and when I go through 2-3 layers of simple plain cotton material, the machines appears to have a grinding noise. I changed the needle, rethreaded top and bottom and blowed the dust out. but does not appear to help. the machine is 11 months old. How often should I oil the machine? thank you for time and effort.

This happened to me and I discovered that my presser foot was stuck up. (LOL) I was using embroidery and the needle was actually brushing against the raised presser foot. So, I turned machine off, removed embroidery part and checked the presser foot switch. It was not moving. Well, I put the machine on regular sewing and just turned the wheel a few times and the presser foot reset. When I went back to embroidery all was fine (and still is). so, check yours.

Make sure you're using the correct foot for the stitch. Is this during sewing or embroidery? Take off the bobbin plate using the screwdriver and remove the bobbin. Make sure everything is clean under and around the shuttle. If you've ever broken a needle the tip might have fallen down into the mechanism and occasionally be jamming it.

Hi I'm having problems setting the tension on my JMSM1020. The left hand needle keeps missing stitches and can't work out why. I'm using 4 threads and sewing on lycra stretchey material.


Have you tried it on something, not lycra, like plain cotton? And are you using a ball-point needle? If none of these are the answer, then it is possible the machine is slightly out of time. Might be time for service.

Lervia sewng machine. material wont feed through. Dogs are up but material just wont move through. needle moving freely.


Hm, could be several things. If stitches are not being formed, it could be a timing issue (the needle does not arrive at the bobbin at the correct time). Did the machine recently hit a pin or something hard? That will knock a machine out of time. There could also be a broken piece stuck that is preventing the feed dogs from operating. Thoroughly clean the machine around the bobbin area and feed dogs.

Why is my brother ls2160 is sewing fine on cotton but not on the material I am using. Its a stretchy silky kind of material. What am i doing wrong?


You may need to use a walking foot with your machine as stretchy fabrics are hard for the feed dogs to 'grip' and pull the material through under the needle.... you will probably need to change needle as well... there should be a helpful video on YouTube that will tell u all about sewing with stretchy fabrics and how a 'walking foot' works... hope that helps.

My zig zag stitch is puckering fabric. I even went to the multiple zig zag, same problem. I decreased tension. What should I have double. Note: this was on single layer, along edge of fabric so I could...


Check the bobbin tension too. It could be too tight. Make sure you are using the right size needle for the material as well. Sheer, thin fabric needs a smaller needle, thicker material requires bigger needles. Bobbin tension is the typical problem as most think to adjust the top tension but don't check the bobbin tension.

Is your quilt peices cotton? Cotton shouldn't cause as much trouble sewing along the edge but don't use too long of a stitch length else it will seem to gather up. Puckering side to side however is a tension problem usually. With sheerer fabrics that cause a problem sometimes you can put thin paper underneath, sew through both and then pull the paper off after sewing. (thin like the iron on type interfacing type fabric but like paper).

I can't get the needle to pick up the thread from the bobbin


Buy a pack of Schmetz brand needles for the type of material you want to sew (cotton, denim, knits etc). If that does not solve the problem, you need to have it serviced.

Will not pick up bobbin thread. problem begin after sewing sticky velcro to material. needle started hitting on botton of bobbin area. i adjusted needle bar but it still will not sew.


I would try cleaning the area with some alcohal on a cotton swab and change needle. You may have caused a problem with your timing, I hope not because you will need it to be set again by your authorized center. I know there are directions on the internet but I would rather make sure that it is done right,and knock out your warranty. You have a nice machine.

Have you checked not only the top tension but also the bottom (bobbin) tension? Top tension is usually a lever wheel etc on the machine (depending on model). To tighten the bobbin tension you need to tighten the small screw on your bobbin casing.

I don't suppose it could be as simple as this?
