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
needle is in backwards
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 AND THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS:
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
The tread only breaks in the needle. what can i do . i don't get to sew anything . I tread the needle and get everything ready and start the machine and as quickly as that the tread is broken and the machine has not sewn at all.
hi! well, you can try to set up your thread accurately followed this
fig.bobbins se up of thread.the thread should be clockwise rotation coming out to bobbins casing,insert thread on slot to acquired bobbins tension.after setting up you insert your bobbins on shuttle
casing.next set up your upper thread tension.on fig is just a sample. follow the red thread set, try this on single straight sewing with dial stich set up to # 8 range to #17,Dial tension to # 3. use cotton/polyester foe sample sewing. try on hand maual sewing first several time before applying foot pedal to avoid needle breakage,
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.
its common, but easy to fix,,,ok......first things first, 1. bobbin in bobbin case correctly 2. machine threaded correctly 3. tension set around 3-4 upper 4. when was the last time machine was serviced
