Question about Brother Sewing Machines
The little wire loop on the upper thread tension broke off, I was sewing and it seemed to be doing fine. Then the upper thread broke and when I tried to rethread it had no tension at all and I noticed the little loop was laying on the table in front of the machine. Is this repairable? And if so can I repair it?
The part that is broken is called a check spring. It keeps the thread away from the point of the needle until the needle pierces the fabric. You should probably take the machine into a reputable repair shop.
