Question about Brother Disney ULT-2002D
It will sew a few more stitches after I turn it off and back on.
Also bobbin winder doesn't wind thread even and the top thread will loop on the bottom. I've purchased an external bobbin winder and it has helped some, but tension still varies - just not as bad.
A while ago a needle broke, and when I replaced it, the new needle dropped down into the lower plate area. I could not retrieve it, so I don't know if it could be causing some of the problem.
Cleaning and oiling the machine
Step1 Unfasten the top, bottom, side and handwheel covers, using a screwdriver. Set the covers aside.
Step2Remove the plate that covers the thread bobbin. If it is screwed inplace, use a screwdriver. If it is held by a clip or magnet, use asmall flathead screwdriver to pry up the plate.
Step3 Thoroughly clean inside all the openings, using a vacuum with crevice attachment. Remove any stubborn lint, and use tweezers to take out any thread that is wound around the parts.
Step4 Clean the teeth on the gears, using the tip of a round toothpick to loosen the grime. Vacuum to remove it.
Step5 Lubricate all the moving parts. Use white lithium grease on the gears, and sewing machine oil on the other parts
TENSION: As you change projects and start sewing on differentweight materials, you should test stitch on a piece of scrapmaterial of the same weight before beginning the actual projectso you can adjust your upper tension to that particular fabric.As an example, if you're changing from a denim type fabric to a silky fabric, you would definitely want to make sure the tension is correct and the stitching looks right before you start to sew the garment.
To determine whether the upper tension is too tight or too loose for the fabric you're wanting to use, try the followingtest. Take a small scrap of the fabric, fold it, and stitcha line ON THE BIAS of the fabric, using different colors ofthread in the bobbin and on top. Grasp the bias line ofstitching between the thumb and the index finger. Space thehands about 3 inches apart and pull with an even, quick forceuntil one thread breaks. If the broken thread is the colorof the thread in the needle, it means that the upper tensionis too tight. If the broken thread is the color of thebobbin thread, the upper tension is too loose. If boththreads break together and take more force to break, itmeans that the tensions are balanced.
BOBBIN: The most probable cause of the lower thread breakingis an improperly wound bobbin. Regardless of where you wind the bobbin, inside the machine, on the top of the handwheel or on the front side near the hand wheel, the basic "bobbin"rules apply.
** Always start with an empty bobbin. Never wind one colorover another color.
** Don't wind the bobbin so full that it would be tight andhard to insert into the bobbin case. Most machines have anautomatic "shut off" when the bobbin gets full, but if yoursdoes not, be careful not to fill it too full.
** Wind the bobbin evenly across and in level layers.
** Never mix different sizes of thread in the bobbin and onthe spool, unless you're doing sewing machine embroidery orsome specialty type of sewing. Using different weights of thread on the spool and in the bobbin for general sewing will cause ragged stitches as well as other stitchingproblems.
NEEDLE: Probably 25% of machine repair jobs I go out on,the only problem was that the needle was put in backwards.I know you're probably saying "I've been sewing most of mylife and I know how to put the needle in the machine";however many times a seamstress will get in a hurry and notgive the needle a second thought when putting a new one inthe machine. If your machine will not pick up the bottomthread or skips stitches badly, in most cases it's becausethe needle is in wrong.
Each sewing machine requires that the "flat" side of theneedle be put in a specific way - facing the front, theback, etc., depending on your particular make and model. Ifyou have a sewing machine that takes a needle that doesn'thave a flat side, you'll notice that each needle has agroove in it where the thread lays as it penetrates thefabric. Depending on whether your machine shuttle systemfaces to the front or to the left, the groove of the needlewill also face front or left.

The tension may be too tight for your thread
Your needle may be bent or dull. The eye of your needle may have a nick in it that’s cutting the
thread as you sew. Or your needle may be too small for the thread you’re using, in which case,
change to a larger needle. And make sure your needle is appropriate for the weight and type of
