Question about Brother LS-1217 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Machine is not creating stitches, and I am sure the needle is in correctly, good thread, machine threaded correctly etc. Also, I may have a broken tension spring. How do I change that?
Unfortunately, it's not recommended for users to repair their own brother machines. It sounds like the timing is out anyway... to take it in and have it "Cleaned, Lubed, timed and the Tension repaired"
Or you could use it for target practice and just go buy another machine.

SOURCE: can't draw up the bobbin thread
I have the same problem...I have been sewing for many years, and I think I know how to thread a sewing machine! I'm with this person...IT JUST WON'T PICK-UP THE THREAD ...my machine was new, only used it a few times, then one day....it quit woking, it just will not load the bottom thread, I have tried everything, but to take it to a shop.

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.

My machine was doing the same thing its a sunstar 340-bl.Any way it was caused by aplying to much tension.To put back in remove barrel buy undoing grub srew,once removed, barrel will have one or two screws these are what hold tension shaft under tension in place.I can not advise on how much tension as i have different machine and once you destroy your spring thats it,you need a new one.To much tension causes it to untwist.

Make sure you are threading the machine correctly and it has the proper tension. Also check the bobbin the thread has to go thru the little lash
