Brother LS2020 Unable to sew because bobbin locks up
I can't even get the bobbin thread pulled up because the bobbin thread won't feed because the bobbin isn't turning. I was having problems with all my stitches bunching up the last time I was hemming jeans, but was able to work through them.
Once I was done, I undid the two little plastic anchors (they look like pinball levers) and took out the one piece inside. It look clean, but I think I haven't been able to get it lined back up right in my several tries to put it back together. Before I undid it tonight, the bobbin was popping back in with a click - now it isn't.
Re: Brother LS2020 Unable to sew because bobbin locks up
Okay I think i can help- i have mastered the lower bobbin threading after 4 hours and am now trying to sew but thread keeps bunching up. Anyway you have to line finger of boobin in the top notch, this will keep your bobbin from getting stuck. Hope i helped Lesnbek

In my Brother CE-4000, it appears as though the feed dogs (which you can change to a higher position or a lower position) are allowing the bobbin case to spin all the way around and then the needle hits the bobbin case. When the feed dogs are in the lowest position, the bobbin case does not spin all the way around when the needle moves up and down (and therefore the needle does not get stuck in the bobbin case. I am wondering if this is a problem with the feed dogs/case?
There has to be a problem in your threading or your needle. You may have the needle inserted backwards, flat side has to face rear or the needle is bent. Totally unthread your machine and make sure that there are no tangles and that it feeding the right way. Watch how they show your for threading and winding the bobbin, plus threading the bobbin. Good luck, but I truly think it is in your threading.
my friend and i sat at the machine to see what was happening
the 1st thing wrong the plastic bobbin was the wrong size and the bobbin was not threading through the tension spring as the elastic was to thick
please follow the instruction
1. raise needle to its hieghest position
2. remove hand hole cover plate
3. remove bobbin case from shuttle, pull open latch of bobbin case
4. pull bobbin case straight out of shuttle
5 insert bobbin into bobbin case making sure thread is coming from bobbin.
6. pull thread through slot
7. pull thread under tension spring
8. holding latch open position case into shuttle, and release latch. case should lock into place when latch is released
Don't go directly from the thread spool to the bobbin.
You have to go via the thread quide, (near the end of the head at left side) and under the small roller.
Pass your thread to the bobbin turn your thread 3 turns to the right, clockwise, then pass the end of the thread, under the coming thread and give it another 3 turns to the right. For better results, always remove old thread from bobbin before filling it up.
Push the thread winder lever to lock the bobbin.
Start winding slowly. If the thread is loading in the down position,
put your finger under the thread between the bobbin and the the thread quide, untill you see that the thread is feeding evenly.
I had the exact same problem and could not find the solution until i took my machine to my sewing sensei and i solved my tedious problem.
It was actually not a tension problem at all but a threading problem. Make sure you have threaded your bobbin correctly and that when you pull on the bobbin thread that the bobbin turns the right way. (mine must spin anti clockwise to work)
Make sure that when you pull up the bobbin thread using the needle that it is not over the feed dogs connective bar but under it. A big problem when the thread gets caught around the bobbin case wheel is that the thread is looped around the feed dogs once and that causes the thread to get caught around the bobbin wheel.
In conclusion, thread the bobbin correctly and read over your instruction book before spending the money to get it fixe in s shop.
