Brother swings machine bs 2430 needle size and number


The owner's manual should explain what needle system to use--most US domestic sewing machines take 130/705, but that isn't true for all of them. If your manual doesn't have the information, contact your local Brother dealer.

The size of needle is determined by what you are sewing, ie silk fabric would probably use a Universal needle size 70/10 or smaller. A heavier knit would probably take a Jersey (ballpoint) needle size 80/12 or 90/14. Denim fabric would probably use a Jeans needle size 90/14.

How to fix your needle assembly on your sewing machine


Sounds a bit serious, jeans fabric is dense and thick. Many machines struggle especially sewing hem over side seam with 6+ layers. You need jeans needle size 90, 100 or 110. Maybe take in for a service as the needle assembly could be out if time too 10_23_2013_1_43_35_pm.png

My brother started making a loud noise when sewing pant fabrics


Your machine is complaining because it doesn't have the power to push through the layers of fabric. That clunking noise is the gears in the machine skipping and being sheered off (or it will be eventually) STOP!

If you feel that you need to continue... stop when it does this noise and use the HAND WHEEL. You'll also need to make sure that the presser foot remains level while going over thick seams.

Cant get bobbin to catch


here are my suggestions, if none of them help then the machine
needs to be checked for a timing problem

try changing the needle ---make sure it's the right needle for the fabric
being sewed.--make sure the needle is inserted all the way into the
needle holder--and also make sure the needle is turned the right
way.

rethread the machine --top and bobbin

make sure to use every thread guide

make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case

if the machine is a front or side loading bobbin make sure the bobbin
case is inserted correctly

I needle comes unthreaded whenever we try to sew. We've both tried numerous times and it doesn't make a sitch. The bobbin seems to be done correctly b/c the bottom thread comes up with no problem....


first let's deal with the needle becoming unthreaded, Keeping the needle threaded is easy, always keep thread tails of 3 to 6 inches on the top thread & bobbin at all times, & make sure the thread tail are pulled behind the needle before you start to sew,, this will ensure that the thread will not come out of the needle when you start to sew.

you mention the fabric is thin,, do you have a needle that's right for the fabric your sewing?
thin fabric needs a different needle than blue jeans fabric, check your top tension & see what the setting is on, usually 3 to 5 is good.

when the needle & thread are right for the fabric then the sewing is good.

also clean under the needle plate & bobbin area for loose threads or lint

also it's a possibility that the machine could be out of time & would need to be serviced by a sewing machine repair shop-as they have the tools for the job

Tension adjustments- bobbin metal or plastic-needle size- for sewing on jean cloth


Most machines can sew on jeans fabric, but you may need to go slowly or even hand-turn the needle when crossing thick seams to keep from bending or breaking your needle.

Bobbin: It won't matter if you use plastic or metal bobbins.

Needle: You should use a heavier needle - you can purchase 'jeans' needles, or use the heaviest sharp or universal needle you have.

Tension: For tension adjustment, you can follow the guidelines in your sewing machine manual but you'll also need to adjust the tension based on sewing on scraps of the fabric. If you are sewing light-weight denim, the settings are pretty much the default/normal settings. As you increase the weight/thickness of the fabric and seams to cross, you'll need to loosen your pressure foot tension. If you use decorative 'jeans' thread or topstitching thread, you'll need to loosen your needle tension.
*Always test on scrap fabric to make sure the stitches are forming properly. It is best to make small adjustments to your tension settings, then test, then adjust and test, until it is right. If you sew that weight of fabric often, make note of your tension settings inside your machine manual to save you some time the next time you sew.
I hope this helps.

I cut off jeans and turned them up to hem. Following all the directions in the manual, I began to sew, but the thread broke after only a few stitches. My thread is all-purpose thread. I tried tips in...


I turned up my husband's jeans using a size 100 needle. You can get easy thread needles that have a small gap in one side that you slide the thread through. There is a good way to turn up jeans and keep the original hem without having to cut them. Have a look at this site http://www.daciaray.com/?p=38

Machine No. K1831(256) No.28 how do you set up the stop motion wheel to wind bobbins. It either winds bobbins whilst sewing or just free wheels. I think there must be a way of adjusting this action....
