Question about Brother XR-35

Open Question

Needle holder fall off machine (Borther XR-46)

This is my wife's machine and she has been unable to use it because the needholder no longer stays attached to the machine.  I noticed that there is a "pin" that seems to provide the friction to attach the holder to a rod hanging down from the machine, but when I try to include it, the holder will not fit on the rod.  A couple of times I was able to get the holder and pin over the rod, but it fell off again after a second or two of use.  Looks like the "pin" may be a little bent and perhaps that is the problem.  I'm looking for either how to fix it myself, how to get another pin that is straight (if that is the problem), or where to take it.  Seems like someone that knows sewing machines (my grandfather was a tailor and spent 30 years on the machines in Brooklyn/Manhatta) would take a couple of seconds to fix it.  I'm all thumbs.

SOURCE: needle clamp won't attach to needle bar

There is a set screw above the needle pin screw which tightens with an allen wrench--try that.

The needle holder has a screw right above the screw that holds the needle in place. It really doesn't look like a screw because it does not appear to have a slot for a screwdriver. However, with a small flat head screw driver you can tighten it up. There is also a curverd wire that must be inserted into a slot at the bottom of the holder. The screw tightens against the wire that tightens against the post. (It's a curved wire that curves around the front part).

Hi

That's the needle clamp that fell off. Slip it back into place (make sure you have the 'front' facing forward) and while holding it with your left hand, use the screwdriver in your right hand to tighten the needle clamp screw . To tighten, turn it clockwise. Do not apply strong force when loosening or tightening the needle clamp screw, otherwise certain parts of the sewing machine may be damaged. If you look carefully you should see a small allen head screw on the needle clamp assembly. There should be a J shaped part which goes into a hole on the bottom of the assembly. Reassemble everything, put the assembly back on the needle bar and tighten the screw with an allen wrench:-

I have a singer ultralock 14u34. The lower looper will not stay threaded when I try to sew, just works for an inch then nothing is catghing and the looper is no longer threaded.


Some sergers will unthread themselves if the thread is not threaded through the throat plate right. Especially the lower looper because there is not a lot of space for it to move. Try bringing the thread from the looper straight up through the hole in the throat plate, not to the side of the plate. You can also talk to the professionals at the link that I have attached. They are very helpful and easy to work with. Good luck Sewing Machine Repair Repair Sewing Machines Sewing Machines Repair Fix...

When my wife presses the foot pedal, nothing happens, except that the computer display says "OL". Does that mean that the foot pedal needs to be replaced?


What is the machine make and model?

OL may stand for overload and depending on the make and model it may be due to a number of different causes.

Hello Im having issues with the bobbin case on the Futura CE 100 We just got, its causing it to nest up with thread when my wife tries to use it.


The plastic drop-in bobbin case, is the worst I have ever seen. It is not staying in place. In front of the case, on the right there is a tiny, rectangle spring. It is the only thing I can find that keeps it in place. It is attached with a tiny screw and can be moved forward.

Using a Brother ULT 2003 embroidery machine. In the middle of embroidey design if I stop machine the button to restart the machine stays red and I get the msg to "attach the embroidery frame"...


The solution is to take it to an authorized Brother dealer. It sounds like either something wrong with your embroidery hoop sensors, or more likely something is wrong with the brain of your sewing machine. Hopefully after all this time you've done just that. I'd hate to think of a ULT just sitting around collecting dust.

This is not normal operating behavior for a ULT, take it your a Brother authorized repair center so they can inspect the sensors and the program.

The threads are no longer looping


To thread the overlock you start with the inner most looper first, then the outer looper, then the inner most vertical needle and then the outer. This is the order: | | | | #4 #3 #1 #2 You have to ensure that the lower looper (the furthest one out) has the thread going over the slightly higher looper, the first one you did. If you do this you will be making a stitch. To make the loops fall close to the material is simply a case of altering the tensions on all the needles - I have to do this with my wifes machine. Once I have the tensions for her machine I'll be able to pass them on to you although every machine is different it may give you a starting point. I will try and perform this task this weekend - I'll be online next week and perhaps we can chat and I can send you our tension levels. I hope this helps.. my wife sews and I re-thread - she won't go near the inside of the machine and I won't try to sew :) BXL830
