New machine now working

I have sewn several proactice stiches, and then changed the color of thread. Now the led light come on afer 2-3 seconds of sewing. I have rethreaded the original thread and the same light comes on each time. the manual says it is an operation error, but I can't figure it out. I have shut down the mnachine and restarted it but still same light.

when you sew keep a eye on the thread take up lever & see if the thread comes off while your sewing, I've had this happen to me & I've been sewing for over 30 years. if this does happen, take a pair of pliers & very gently close the take up lever just alittle but not enough to damage it.
also check the needle to see if it's damaged--if your not sure change the needle--flat side goes to the back of the machine
always make sure the fabric & needle & thread are compatable--the thread must be able to pull thru the needle with out any problem
also check to make sure there are not any burrs on the needle plate or bobbin or bobbin case

Sewing on reverse of fabric

There has to be thread on both sides of the cloth in order to form a stitch.

Refer to the maintenance section of your machine and clean the machine as recommended.

Did you change the thread or needle?

Check the manual to be sure the threading is correct and was done with the presser foot up.

Is the needle is correctly installed?

Check the bobbin to be sure the thread is feeding in the correct direction and through the guides on the side of the bobbin case.

The top needle unthreads after just a few stiches. I have a Singer 2950 and am new to sewing.

Are you saying that the thread is breaking?

CAUSES of upper thread breaking

needle is in backwards
improperly threaded
tension to tight
needle bent or blunt
thread to coarse for size of needle
needle too long for machine
burr on needle
tension discs worn so that thread works in grove
neele too fine for size of thread and fabric
lint or dirt around bobbin case holder
irregular sewing speed
threads not properly pulled back under pressure foot when starting to sew
This means, Have enough of the upper and lower thread pulled to the back and hold for the first 2-3 stiches,

Do this every time and it will become second nature and you will do it automatically

Bobbin thread is loose (under stich)

Not a tension problem, refer to manual and rethread the top thread, 95% + this fixes problem.

Trouble with sensor

The upper thread sensor on most Brother's is activated by the check spring. Either your check spring has broken or is stuck. You may be able to fix this if you can get to it. A drop of oil may be all you need. I may be able to give more specific advise if you tell me what model it is.

Good luck!

I have the same problem, new machine, and I haven't sewn a stich.

Machines should be bought from local dealer who actually has a clue how to show someone to us it. Sorry for your problems but commonly they are operator error
