SOURCE: Brother Sewing Machine model:CS8150 bobbin thread problems

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

SOURCE: thread getting stuck

We had he same problem with no solutions posted. Solution: First, make sure the bobbin case is clean. Ours was slightly rusted. The rust acted like a fine sand paper keeping the thread from encircling the bobbin. We used an metal cleaning powder to remove it. we also noticed that the entire bobbin area of the machine was dirty and had oxidation on the metal. We cleaned that as well.

Second, we checked the hook's action. (We took off the ring around the bobbin and removed the bobbin case as well. we left the hook in the machine and then turned the machine. We watched for how well the hook grabbed the thread from the needle.) We noticed that the hook was slightly slow and was not grabbing the thread. The hole in the needle was slightly above the hook as the needle retreated and hook spun around.

To repair this, we took off the front plastic cover (the side facing the operator). There are screws on both sides of the machine for this. After the cover is removed, you will notice a flat bar going from top to bottom about 1/3 from the right of the machine. This bar has four screws. This bar is the timing adjustment for the bobbin hook. Loosen all four screws. If you turn the bobbin by hand, you will see the bar flex back and forth. Turn the bobbin all the way to the right and tighten the screws. The hook should now catch the thread properly.

SOURCE: MY BROTHER MACHINE NO. LS-2125i THREAD BREAKING WHEN SEWING?

Thread brekage can be caused by several things but start simple by taking off the needle plate then thoroughly clean the sewing mechanism and add a few drops of oil, then check the threading is correct. replace the needle. Always use quality threads and make sure that the thread is not to heavy for the size of the needle (it should pass easily through the needles eye). check that the needle hole in the plate is not bent or damaged and peppered with needle marks, a damaged plate will cause many problems. Finally, make sure that the tensions are not too tight this can be a major cause of thread breakage especially if poor quality thread is used. ( check thread by breaking it by hand, it should offer good resistance to breakage, if it breaks easily then discard it. hope this is useful, best of luck.

SOURCE: my brother sewing machine won't pick up the thread...

If it is the correct needle length, and the needle is in correctly and threaded correctly, then the machine is out of time.

Brother 661 charger keeps breaking the thread on the needle when it goes down in the machine


Install a new needle. Remove the thread from the upper threader. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the tension to the midway point.

Help in threading singer 491


that the machine is threaded correctly, that the needle is in properly, that the bobbin case and bobbin are both inserted correctly and that you are not using old thread.

Make sure that there is a new needle in the machine and loosen the top tension about a number

You need to carefully re-thread the machine.
