I'm having a problem threading my brother sewing machine model XL 3010


1. Clean up any loose thread in the bobbin area.
2. Pull on the bobbin thread while it is out. It should give a tension that is equal to the top tension of three. You'll have to approximate. Adjust the screw tension on the bobbin. It is the screw nearest to the thread exit hole on the side.
3. Put it back in.
4. Now, the top tension should be at about three. If it still allows a little wad on the bottom of the fabric you can adjust the top tension by tightening a small amount and monitor each time you adjust. The wad should go away.

I have a brother xl 5500 it keeps breaking the top thread no matter what i do


Go back to your instruction manual, some available online. to Re-thread the machine completely and make sure you are threading correctly. If that's not it, you may have thread jammed in a mechanism and it needs a technician's tools to get at it properly.

How do I drop the feed dogs on my Brother sewing machine?


Altho I don't have your model, most of the Brother sewing machines have a slider kind of button on the back of the machine right in back of the needle assembly. So you push it to one side and voil? ! the feed dogs are dropped down. Don't forget to put them back up when you need them again :-)

How do I reassemble drop-in bobbin case for Brothers XL 2600 free arm?


Do you have some pictures of the area involved. I know how to put these things back but I can't think how to explain it to you.. pics might help me show you.

Brother has an outstanding service department, and if you don't have a manual, they should have one. Should have a pic of how it goes together.

First time on Brother XL 2610, threaded correctly but thread will make loops and then pull apart. WHat went wrong?


try adjusting the upper tension
change the needle
if you recieved a instruction manual with the machine, look for the part that tells about what fabrics go with which needles, & the thread should move easily thru the needle eye with out any problem
