Try changing the needle
try rethreading the machine top and bobbin
make sure to use every thread guide-this is improtant for the
thread tension
make sure the bobbin is turned correctly in the bobbin case
also could be a problem with the computer motherboard
or there could be a problem with the timing

The "race" on your machine needs adjusting. Remove the bobbin cover, bobbin, & case. What you have left is the race, it moves when you turn the large wheel on the top right of machine. The needle also moves up and down. There is a hook on the race that catches the needle thread. Try moving the race to the line up with the needle. It may take a couple of trys but it should do the trick. Also clean any threads that may be caught on or arround the race. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: The needle does not pick up the bobbin thread.

Check the needle - is it bent. Is it in backwards (flat side to the back is correct), or is it threaded from the back to the front instead of from the front to the back.

Check the bobbin to be sure the thread is feeding in the proper direction and the thread is not caught in the cover for the bobbin area.

If none of this helps, then the machine needs to go into the shop for service.

How do I reassemble drop-in bobbin case for Brothers XL 2600 free arm?


Do you have some pictures of the area involved. I know how to put these things back but I can't think how to explain it to you.. pics might help me show you.

Brother has an outstanding service department, and if you don't have a manual, they should have one. Should have a pic of how it goes together.

Upper thread breaking while quilting


Upper thread breaks
1.the needle may be bent or damaged--try rolling the needle on a flat surface to see if it's bent or not
Or the needle could be in backwards
Correct needle insertion
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine or if using a round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
2.upper tension may be to tight--try 3 to 5
3.thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
???
Lower thread breaks
The most probable cause of lower thread breaking is improperly wound bobbin
1.always start with a empty bobbin
Never wind one color over the other
2.choose thread that is identical in color & type as the one to be used for upper threading
3.wind the bobbin evenly across & in layers
4.don't wind the bobbin so full that it would be tight & hard to insert into bobbin case
5.bent bobbin--replace
6.lint built up in the bobbin case--frequent cleanings will eliminate this problem, the more often you use the sewing machine the more often it needs to be cleaned
7.thread catching on the bobbin spring or latch on bobbin case, check to see that the bobbin is inserted completely & correctly, & that you are using the right kind of bobbin .

My bobbin thread will not thread. When I bring the needle down, it comes up without the bobbin thread. The mechanism moves, but no thread. How do I fix this problem?


check the bobbin to make sure it's not warped
check the needle to make sure it's not bent-roll on flat surface to see if it roll correctly
make sure the bobbin is in the bobbin case correctly
make sure you have a 3 to 4 inch tail on the bobbin-so the upper thread can pick it up easily
make sure you have a 3 to 4 inch tail on upper thread also as it picks up the lower thread
or you can hold the upper thread with your hand to the side of the machine & use the handwheel to lower the needle as it picks up the lower thread
pull both threads to the back behind the needle
make sure there is no lint or loose threads in the bobbin area

re thread the upper and lower threads

make sure the bobbin is in the correct way (check manual for the correct spin on the bobbin clockwise or counter clockwise

change needle or check that it is in correct, if it has a flat side goes to the back, the long groove on the needle when goes down should just meet with the hook in the bobbin area to pick up the thread

Problem with threads not catching


Try putting in new needles. Make sure they are in the proper position. There is a stopper which keeps the needle down far enough to make the right connection. Sometimes the needle stopper, after long use, moves up a little which prevents the needle from going low enough to pick up the bobbin thread. You could try lowering the needle just a little. Not to far, or it will break the needle. Sewing machines need a lot of oil. Not all at once but a drop or two after an hour of use. All lint needs to be removed from under and around the bobbin before it is oiled. Keeping the machine clean and oiled is the life of the machine.
