You may have adjusted the upper tension and made it so tight that the thread just pulls out of the needle and needle makes holes in fabric. you might want to check the feed of the bobbin, it will not allow the machine to sew if it is not able to be picked up by the needle. the bobbin thread is usually (when held in your hand) with the thread coming counter clock wise. and then it will lay in the bobbin holder and the end of the thread will come back to about the slide catch thing and be held there until the needle thread catches it (leave the cover off the bobbin area until you watch and see what happens then. Try adjusting the bobbing tension too hope you understand what I mean here.

How would to insert the bobbin in the sewing machine brother VX 1400?


There is not much of a secret to inserting a bobbin in a sewing machine. A couple of things to check, the thread from the bobbin should be pulled through the slot of the carrier, and make sure the thread comes through the sewing hole by manually lowering the threaded needle and then lifting it out of the hole again after it has picked up the thread from the bobbin. The video link posted below is useful if you have a Brother sewing machine.
If the stitching is still not right then check that the needle is fully inserted in its housing. (Push the needle up as far as it will go then tighten the screw.)

My machine won't stitch, and the tensions seems to be very high, even after adjusting it.


Hi, if your bobbin has thread, check to make sure the bobbin is inserted into the shuttle correctly. If it is loaded correctly, check to see if the needle is able to pull the thread through the throat plate.
If it doesn't have thread, then all your sewing machine will do is make little holes because the bobbin thread is what catches the sewing needle thread to form the lock stitch to sew the material together . Check your manual on the sewing machine for where it is and how to put thread into it.

The bobbin thread keeps getting matted up and pulling the material in the bottom... I'm using a heavier thread, and have tried several differant kinds of material to see if that was the problem...


Be sure to use the correct thread, advised in your manual and that your bobbin and top threads are not too different or else you will have problems. If, you are using a real thin material, try putting tissue paper under your fabric so that it won't get caught. in the needle hole. Usually matting under the fabric is caused by incorrect threading but I am suspecting your thread itself. If, you don't have a manual, go brother-usa.com and download one for free.

Bobbin area will not work


There should be a spinning cover with a hook that fits over the bobbin. Normally, you just pull the bobbin thread out through the swinging/sliding plate hole. Turn the machine by hand toward you (at the top) until the needle dives into and comes back with both threads. Separate the threads and assuming that the thread tension above the needle is set correctly, feed a piece of material in to see if it sews correctly. The tension is set so that the thread is even on both sides of the material. Let the machine pull the material through at it's own pace, your function is to guide the material.

Machine is threaded but thread not sewing into material, just holes!


Check bobbin thread....Insert the bobbin thread into the bobbin case in a clockwise direction...pull the thread through the **** on side of bobbin case and slide up into small opening...make sure you pull through about 2 inches of thread to enable upper thread to loop. Good Luck

Breaking thread


1. Make sure you are using the correct needle and thread for type of fabric and it is installed correctly. Make sure bobbin is threaded evenly. 2. Tread path - make sure the machine is correctly threaded. Then, with your finger, feel for burrs, nicks or roughness on any metal parts that contact the thread. Open the slide plate, remove the bobbin and inspect the bobbin case and hook. Remove the needle plate and examine the needle hole. Sand any rough areas with fine emery paper and blow away grit. If burrs or nicks remain on the needle, presser foot, needle plate or bobbin case, replace them with exact replacement parts, if they remain on the thread guides, take-up lever, bobbin hook or tension regulator, take the machine for professional service. 3. Loosen thread tension by adjusting tension dial. 4. Clean feed dog, bobbin case, and tension discs. Unplug the machine. Use a small, stiff brush to wipe dirt and lint off the machine head and the needle bar area. Raise the presser foot and the needle to the highest position, open slide plate and remove the bobbin and needle plate. brush away dirt and lint from the feed dogs and bobbin case and remove any tangled thread with your fingers. Use a soft cloth to clean between the tension disc on the tension regulator. 5. Also check tension on presser foot
