How to change Brother compal galaxie 870 sewing machine needle default that starts on the left to default to the middle


Some machines have the left setting as the default. Those machines have the bobbin case that is installed from the left side of the machine. For most purposes, this default cannot be changed to center. Machines that have the bobbin case installed from the front of the machine generally have the needle center default position. However, it appears to be a newer model machine (post 1970), so there is a good chance your machine has a needle position setting.

The timing is out and was wondering how to fix it


Because the timing has been changed it will need to have a repairman fix it. Another possibility is to go to youtube timing sewing machines.

Keep the thread from collecting on the arm that holds the bobbin case in? My Brother LB-6800 sews quilts, and embroiders great until yesterday, The thread wraps around this small arm every time now.


Try taking the bobbin case out and re-insert. It sounds like the case that holds the bobbin is not inserted correctly. You might also try checking to be sure that the needle is inserted properly. Sometimes the needle gets loose and drops down too low. unscrew, push the needle up as far as it will go, then tighten the screw.

The cotton jam underneath the garment. How does it come about doing it ? How do i fix this on the Compal Opus machine


First thing I would try is to try to shift the handwheel on the right carefully to see if it would loosen up a little. Next thing would be to get to the screws holding down the needle plate and remove them. Remove the presser foot and the needle from it's clamp. Then slowly try to work the whole thing loose. If you can expose thread underneath the needle plate cut all that you see and try not to cut into the garment. With a little care you should be able to work it loose and out. Don't force anything if you can help it. Particularly the hook surrounding the bobbin case. Too much force and it might be shifted out of time and won't sew right once you get it all clear. good luck.

The whole problem may have started from improper threading or upper tension not operational or too loose. Make sure when you rethread that the upper tension is engaged when the presser foot is lowered and loose when the presser foot is raised. Also when you have the needle plate off that the bobbin case is in the proper position so that it can't turn too much only a very little. Just Enough so that the thread can make its way around without catching.

Brother sewing machine model 732 (pretty old machine) compal star My machine was sewing forward up to today. I broke a needle changed that since when it wants to go backwards...any ideas what to do I have...


have you checked the reverse lever to see what position it's in?

if the needle broke at the tip end check in the bobbin area for needle fragments

it is possible that a broken needle can jam up or even get the machine out of time.
it may need to be serviced

Cotton breaks on Brother Embroidery Galaxie 2100 machine


Try turning down your top tension setting a bit. If its at 4 or 5, i would turn it down to about 3 ish. Cotton thread is more brittle than polyester and rayon thread.

Hope that helps :)

Brother VX-1120- The needle is not picking up bobbin thread.


I had the same problem with my brother vx-1120 sewing machine. I set the needle to lowest position by using the hand crank. Then I loosened the knerled set screw that holds needle in place. Then I moved needle shaft till the eye of needle is just lower than the hook on the shuttle loop maker. It made my mechine work. There are instuctions for ajusting timing on machine but I think these mechines are built to not fix and throw out. Just because there where no ajustment marks at all on machine, any machanical machine will needed to be ajusted sometime.

Brother PE-150V bobbin thread


For embroidery, and zig-zag, and because the needle makes side movements, it needs more needle thread.
So try to keep you needle thread not very tight,
and tight up your bobbin case tension more, so that the two threads meet under the meterial.
