I bought a new Brother XL 2610 about three months ago and with a number of medical issues, my wife is only now able to begin use it. While going through the manual and checking a number of online...


No. The manual in the box is for several models of machine. One version is a 26 stitch, the other 35. You probably have the 26 stitch model, which does not come with a needle threader.

How do I un-attach the the standard zig-zag presser foot in order to put on the zipper foot? My machine did not come with the click on and off type seen in the manual. I have a model XL 5700. It just may...


I just looked at your manual, and if you look at page 9 you will see the little lever in back of the foot adaptor to release, just push that to release that foot. If, you have any questions on it, take it to your dealer or just go to JoAnn fabrics and have them show you. Even Sears sewing department is great for demos. Unless your machine is not an XL 5700 it does have snap on presser feet. You will see how really easy it is to do once someone shows. Good luck and have fun with it, Happy Easter

My wife has a Brother XL-2027 sewing machine, Does anyone know where we can download a free copy of the owners handbook or users manual...


You can usually download free manuals from the Brother site.
http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/default.aspx?PGID=3
I couldn't find a manual for the XL2027 but I did find one for the XL3027.
http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_XL_3025_3027_3030_EN_447.PDF
Also the nearest XL model number listed was the XL2121
http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_XL_2121_EN_245.PDF
Worth looking at these two manuals to see if they are similar to your machine.
You could try contacting Brother (see the first link) as they may be able to help you find the exact manual for your machine.
Hope this helps!

Learn how to change the needle in my brother xl 2600i sewing machine


If, you do not have the manual, please go to Brother.com and download one for free. Also, to change your needle without a screwdriver, use a nickel or dime. Sometimes that works better than a screwdriver and won't strip your screw head.

My xl-5700 the needle keeps breaking or the thread keeps getting all bunched up plus I lost my instruction manual can I gat a new one


About the needle problem, Brother's FAQ gives the following response: 

Make sure the needle is correctly inserted with the flat side facing the back and pushed up into the machine as far as possible.

The needle could have been damaged or bent. If so replace with a new one.

Make sure the fabric is not pulled excessively when sewing. Let the feed dogs move the fabric. Do not pull the fabric.

The combination of needle size, thread size and fabric is incorrect. 
Be sure to use the correct needle and thread size for the fabric you are sewing.(example: Denim-size 16 needle and 40-50 heavy duty thread).

As for the manual, here's the link:

Oiling XL-5700


You oil this machine anyplace that it moves and rubs. Needle bar, joints that drive the needle bar,end of each shaft, presser foot bar,hook race etc. Do not use 3 in 1 oil. Use a good quality sewing machine oil.
