Take the thread out, Take the needle plate out Watch as the needle comes comes down, make sure the hook is just above the eye of the the needle as it makes its pass by the scarf of the needle if not refer to my post on timing.

Does anyone know how to set a Brother sewing machine for a straight low tension stitch?


Stitch length on 2.5 and stitch width on zero, and just loosen the top tension by a half number if you want the tension looser. If your machine has a stitch selector knob, make sure it is set to the straight stitch setting.

Tension setting for a straight stitch on Brother XL-2230 Help!


I would tend to set all tensions on "0". If this does not work, move each one up or down slightly and stitch again. use a spare peice of fabric or one similar to your project.

Sometimes a blunt needle causes tension problems.

What are the best settings on the 4 dials for the straight stitch? Do the ones on top have to match the wheel settings below? Thanks from a novice


Hello,
#1- tension settings, set this to "5" and leave it
#2- width control setting, 0 would be straight while 5 would be the full width of the stitch (would make a wide zig zag)
#3- Length control, larger the number, longer the stitch. (usually you will set this from 1.5 to 2.5)
#4- Stitch selector, match up the number with the stitch you want to sew. If you want to use the lower row of stitches (14-25) set the length dial to "ss". (ss stands for stretch stitch, such as for #14 (three rows of straight dashed lines) instead of just sewing one stitch forward, the machine will sew back and forth giving you a stretchy stitch/stronger)

What settings do I use for straight stitching on my machine


-Turn the stitch selection dial to the straight stitch (usually the first one, looks like this ----------------)

-Set the lenght dial to anywhere from about 1.5 to 3. The bigger the number, the longer the stitch

-Your width dial will also control where the needle sews (on the left side or the foot, right, center....)

Hope that helps,
Chris

PS,
Always thread the machine with the pressure foot up, or else you will get looping of thread on the bottom of the fabric..

CANNOT GET THE TOP AND BOTTOM STITCH TO MATCH FOR STRAIGHT SEWING. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING. CAME USED WITHOUT INSTRUCTION MANUAL.


Please explain what you mean when say you cannot get it matched. For straight stitching you need to have the stitch dial on 2.
