You can go to www.brother-usa.com and get an online manual. You can print it out or just save to your computer and reference. It should tell you how to get the casing set right. Good luck.

MY THREAD GETTING WRAPPED AROUND THE BOBBING WHEN TRYING TO SEW THE TOP THREAD WRAPPING AROUND THE BOBBING CASE AND DRAGGING CAUSING THE TOP THREAD TO BREAK ?


It sounds like the lower shuttle is out of place. You should be able to take out the bobbin case and unlatch the shuttle. It will probably be in 2 pieces. Clean out the dust behind it and replace the shuttle pieces. You may have to fiddle with it a little to get them back in place. Then you can test it by manually turning the wheel. Make sure the bobbin is placed into the bobbin case and that the bobbin turns in the direction that you pull the thread.

Good luck.

Still having problem with thread bunding up underneath my design that I want to embroidery. Have cleaned threading area made sure it was caught right in bubbin case see no nicks or enything but still same...


Mary, sounds to me that the problem is with your BOBBIN TENSION. Check your manual to see how to do this or send me more info on type of machine you have. If you have a bobbin CASE with a very tiny screw on the side of it, try adjusting slightly both ways & test on extra piece of fabric after each adjustment! This should solve it! Good luck!

I released the bobbin case to get bunched up thread out now need a diagram of how it goes back together,,I have 2 loose pieces


I can only give a general answer; you did not state what make and model you have.

Generally with bobbin cases, there is a flat part somewhere, as well as the "wings." The flat part goes under the needle, and at least one of those "wings" is designed to rest against something in the bobbin basket that holds it to prevent the case from rotating during sewing.

If you cannot find your user's manual that TELLS you how it's supposed to go in, you can generally get a replacement manual that you can download--either from the manufacturer itself, or there are a number of places that will provide one either for free or for a nominal charge.

Bobbin case bound up with thread and popped out of position


Ensure needle/needle bar is fully up at its highest point, replace the bobbin case with its open end seated at the back, the rotary hook tip should be just underneath it, just check further that it resides nicely along the groove of the rotary hook, re install the needle plate cover and tighten the 2 holding screws so that the bobbin case can be nicely in place, manually and slowly hand wheel the needle down several time to ensure the bobbin case is not unseated/needle is not knocking the bobbin case. Hope this can help/otherwise there are adjustments that need your local technician to do it.

Top thread gets caught on crescent piece holding in bobbin case


If you have the manual take a better look at how to put the bobbin in the case,

sounds like you are putting it in wrong,

make sure you put the bobbin in with the thread com-ming off the bobbin in the right direction (left or right) if not put in the right way you will get what you are saying

ALSO: bring up the bobbin thread your self by turning the hand wheal and bring the thread a few inches to the back of the needle and hold when starting to sew the first 2-5 stitches.

when you do not hold the thread the machine will pull the thread in the bobbin area and cause problems.

you will get use to holding and it will get easier.

hope this helps

Bobbin case is disassembled. how do I put it back together?


It should be in your manual.... but if you don't have one, I'm gonna try this out. I don't know the official names, so bear with me.

0e32874.jpg

There should be two plastic arm-lookin things that are turnable. Make sure these are turned outwards.

44a455e.jpg


You should have three silver pieces. The one you need first is a half-moon looking thing with a knob comin out of the middle. (it also has some holes in it)

1b56518.jpg

If you turn the big knob on the right hand side, there should be a moving piece on the inside of the bobbin case.

9f56fa0.jpg

The half moon needs to fit in with that piece. Don't force anything cause we don't want the machine to break. >< The knob thing needs to be facing the outside, otherwise it's not gonna go in at all.

4c32e5e.jpg

Once you get the half-moon thing in there, you have two more left. There's a big circle. WOO! CIRCLES! ANYWHO, The big silvery circle.. it has a knotch in it, and a little pokey-outie thing comin' out of it.

61f6c9e.jpg

It needs to be positioned so that the knotch (on the inside of the circle) is up and the pokey-outie piece (on the outer side of the circle) is on the bottom. On your machine, there should be a place where the pokey-outie piece would fit perfectly into a little hole-type-thing. Put it in. :O

297f9a7.jpg

Now it's time to move those little black plastic arms towards the center. On your circle, there should be little grooves that they fit right on top of. ^_^

bb79c5d.jpg

The only silver piece left should be the actual bobbin case deal. This should be a smaller circle with a movable arm and a silver thing pokin' out of it. (I told you, I'm bad at names!) Before you put this guy in, we need to have your plastic bobbin threaded. (I'm assuming this has already been done, correct me if I'm wrong.... they also have pre-threaded bobbins for sale, but hey, whatever works.)

f756bb2.jpg

Your bobbin needs to fit inside this last piece. (my first bobbin didn't, and I freaked out and ran to my dad... LOL) You need to make sure there is a trail of thread coming out of your bobbin that's about two to three inches long. Place your bobbin in the silver guy and there /should/ be a little niche where you can play with the thread and pull it through the silver guy's parts. (Your thread may break, don't worry, just try again)

5ec5f6a.jpg

When you move the thread around, it should come out where the little arm that sticks out is. Keep the 2-3 inch trail goin' on, you'll need it. Remember that first half-moon silver guy? Well, we're gonna stick our little assembly onto his pokey-outie piece.

ed83178.jpg

The silver arm-thing on our assembly needs to go into the knotch that's in our circle, and push in so it clicks. (Sometimes mine clicks twice...) Make sure you have that trail of thread, and go ahead and flip the white plastic up, because you're DONE assembling it.

a3c219b.jpg

I'm going to assume you have your top thread in already (again, correct me if I'm wrong..) make sure that your top thread is through the hole in the needle, otherwise we're thoroughly screwed. Pull that thread until you have another 2-3 inch tail, and twist the big white knob on the right side of your machine (same one as before...) TOWARDS you. KEEP HOLDING your top thread, otherwise it'll disappear into the abyss that is your bobbin assembly.

549cb5e.jpg

When you turn the knob towards you, your needle should dip down into the abyss and come back up- with your bottom thread! HUZZAH! it SHOULD be a loop around your top thread. (I'd use contrasting colors for practice.. so you know what it'll look like)

716685d.jpg

The manual says to "grab the bottom thread" but seriously, I can't get me fingers down in there, so I just slide some scissors under the foot and between the two sides of the loop, and just slide 'em left. usually works just fine. Unless my tail for the bottom thread is too short, cause then it'll be hard to grab. You should be good to go!

I know this is pic heavy and kind of long, but I like to provide as much info as possible! Let me know if it helped!!

Bobbin Thread Doesn't Join the Upper Thread


Have you lowered the presser foot lever? It is the lever behind the needle that makes the foot go down. Do you put the bobbin in the machine from the top of the machine or from the front? In either case, you need to make sure the bobbin thread has clicked into the tension slot in the bobbin case. The bobbin case is the part of the machine that the bobbin sits in. It will have some kind of narrow cut out with a thin metal shaped piece half covering the opening. The thread has to go down into the cut out piece and click down beside the metal piece. You will hear a faint "click" when it is in place. Very hard to describe, but easy to show someone! Write back if this is not helpful to you. Also tell us your machine model.

HELP ASAP!


The bobbin case is in the wrong position to lock into the shuttle holder.Try instead of holding the the release lever of the bobbin case open, instead position the bobbin case finger to the up position and insert the bobbin case by pushing it in with your thumb. You should feel or hear it snap into position. You may have to rotate it slightly to get the finger in the proper position.
