SOURCE: Brother XL-6562 sewing machine is not feeding fabric through properly

Oil might help but it sounds like you don't have enough pressure on the foot. You can take the casing off where the light is and there is a screw back there that controls the tension on the pressure foot. It is not meant to be changed by anyone but a professional. I've changed the tension but it wasn't easy. If you are still interested let me know and I will try to explain.

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.

How do I replace the bobbin hook after cleaning my Brother XL-3030?


you may be able to enlarge the manual page:

Brother XL 3030 User Manual Page 60

The hook (half-moon piece) needs to go in first, but you may need to wiggle it to seat it and then hold it while you fasten the outer retaining ring (hook race). Flip the levers up to hold the ring in place. Then install the bobbin case.

FWIW, my machine oiling instructions say to apply a drop of good quality oil on the outer edge of the hook race lip where the hook rubs as it turns. But, your manual should explain where to oil.

Oiling XL-5700


You oil this machine anyplace that it moves and rubs. Needle bar, joints that drive the needle bar,end of each shaft, presser foot bar,hook race etc. Do not use 3 in 1 oil. Use a good quality sewing machine oil.

Brother XL-5340 sewing machine


Try a new needle, making sure it is put in properly. A bent needle can break thread. Make sure top tension is set properly.

Help I have no idea what is wrong.


I think this is lint build up. Try dissasembling the bobbin case parts any other parts on the bottom of the machine that could be collecting lint.
