Brother mechanical sewing machine XL-5060 - Can't select stiches

Hi - I have a 17 stitch model but the pattern selection dial only has 9 positions.

On each position 2 stitches are indicated, one in white text, one in black.

However nowhere in the instructions does it say how to select the stitch in black text. I only seem to be able to get the stitch in white text.

Any help much appreciated!

I have been provided with the solution by Brother.

If I turn the Stitch Length dial to "SS" I can select stitches from 10 onwards.

Wish they could have put that in the manual!.

Suddenly my brother xl-2220 is sewing strangely! The top stich is fine, no tensio issues, but when I look at the bottom stitch it isn't right! The stitch is very loose and looks like the pattern a snake...


totally rethread, and do this test, rethread with the presser foot up, pull the thread it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, pull thread, it should barely move. This will seat your thread in the tension discs, Also, don't be afraid to change your needle often.

Stitch selection


Next to the "selection wheel" there's a large-ish "hole" with a screw at the bottom, use your screw driver to wind up the screw and you'll be able to use the 9 to 15:)

The question was regarding the Elna 2002 not 2007 and it wasn't a problem. I just do not understand how the pattern selection works. Thank you.

Making a buttonhole on a Necchi 3204 sewing machine


Here's what the manual says:

Before sewing, fit the button-hold foot to the machine (long white plastic thing with red, ruler like markings).

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the left hand side. Set the dial to "1" position. Sew the left side and raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the top and bottom. Set the dial to "2" position. Sew 5-6 stitches and raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the right hand side. Set the dial to "3" position. Sew the right side. Raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the top and bottom. Set the dial to "4" position. Sew 5-6 stitches and raise the needle.

Hope that helps...

Machine will not sew forward without backstitching


You have selected the Stretch Stich (SS) mode on the stitch length regulator, just turn the knob around until you have a number 1 - 5 and that should be it.
The model number will be the last digits on the metal compliance plate with voltage etc.....looks like:
V / 1234 / 123454321 / 2016

This then would be a Model 2016

Can't select stitches 11-21


To select stitches 11-21 you position the stitch length dial on the "SS" setting , and the pattern selecting dial on the desired stitch number.
