Set the machine to its longest stitch length, put it in the warmest room in your house and in the sun if possible. If the stitch gets longer when the machine is warm it needs to be cleaned and lubed so that the stitch length mechanism moves freely.
If the lube in the machine is getting old or is nonexistent, the reverse button may be depressed and appear to return to its original position, when released, but the mechanism inside the machine only returns part of the way causing the length to be shorter than normal. Heat often masks this problem allowing the mechanism to move.

Hi, and welcome to FixYa. Normally, the default top tension setting on most machines is between 4 and 6. Brother manuals usually contain detailed information about tension and how to determine if your tension is set correctly, so check that section of your manual when you have time....if you don't have your manual...
you can find a copy to download for free on Brother's website (I added a link to the web page below). The same web page has other information about your machine that you might find helpful now or in the future. Even if you have the manual, it is worth a visit.
If you and other readers have a minute to rate my answer, it helps me better understand what readers are looking for when they come to the FixYa site for help.
Best of luck, and enjoy your machine. Don't hesitate to comment if the link doesn't' work, or if you have more questions. Cheers!

it is easy to switch the stich modes
there are two wheels on the side on the mchine
one in for manualy stiching *the big one)
and the little one changes the stitch
you have to look at the LCD screen to make sure the numbers correspond

Well is your machine skipping stitches? "Not looping" does that mean not creating a stitch? To adjust your bottom stitch you usually adjust the top tension regulator. I can try to help you more in detail check out my forums http://www.sewingmachineryrepair.com/forums/index.php

Removable parts are the race and bobbin case.
Raise the needle to it's at the highest position and set the race hook into the shuttle so the hook is at the lower left.
Re-place the hook race cover and move the levers or pegs to hold the cover in place.
