General rule of thumb is this.. If it loops on the bottom the problem is on the top..
If it loops on the top, the problem is on the bottom.
Sounds like #1 your bobbin is wound very loosely , #2 your bobbin thread has to go thru its tensioner.

Machine will not feed material thru. Needle goes up and down but I cant pull material thru to catch the stitch


Use a fresh needle and install with flat side facing rear of machine. Is your clutch engaged, after you wound the bobbin? Do you have an owners manual? If not, go online to brother-usa.com and download one for free. It is good to have a copy on hand anyway. Good luck

How do I adjust the bobbin settings on my Brother XL-3022


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

Appearence of loop and no zigzag stich on ls-2125i brother


The loopy stitching is usually do to threading the machine with the presser foot down.

Raise the presser foot and re-thread or pull about 8" of thread through the needle and see if the loopy stitches go away.

This may also be the issue with the zig-zag stitch.

When the machine is threaded with the presser foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter as it should for the tension to control the flow of thread to the needle. The thread then feeds too fast and the stitching is distorted.

How to adjust tension on bottom stitch?


There are tow places where the thread tension is adjusted.

One is bobbin. This is not routinely adjusted. Just once and it is good for long time. This is done by turning the only screw on bobbin by about 1/4 turn or so at a time. Try several settings until you find he best.

the other place is the conventionally on body of the machine.

Tension of bottom stitch or top stitch are very confusing words. meaning difft things to difft pple.
All i can say is this. If u see bottom stitch run straight through loops of top thread. then either top tension is too loose or bottom too tight. and vise versa.

With top tension set to middle position adjust the bobbin to get correct stitch. Then later on all u need is to adjust only the top setting according to stitch and cloth

I HAVE A BROTHER LS-2125 SEWING MACHINE AND THE STITCHING UNDERNEATH IS OK BUT THE UPPER THREAD IS LOOSE AND ALSO SKIPS


Sounds like either the bobbin case tension is too light or is not in the tension at all.

Consult your manual for how to place the thread in the tension and retry. Increase the bobbin case tension if necessary.

The top tension may be set too high.

Brother LS-2125 - stitches forming loops on the right side as a sew


acing you has loops on it then it is the bobbin tension which is incorrect or the bobbin has been threaded wrongly. A good way to test tension is using contrasting colours top and bottom. Rethread your machine and tighten up the bobbin tension screw if needed.

Skipped stitches & looping on the bottom of Quilt


Try a different needle. Use a quilting or topstitch or even a metallic needle - one that has a larger scarf than normal. The scarf is the groove at the back of the needle where the thread goes while the stitch is being formed. Quilting threads often need more "room" there. I have been told that the Inspira quilting needles are good because they have a thread groove on the front and the back of the needle. Not tried them personally but might be worthwhile for you to consider.

For the looping, you could fiddle with your tensions a little either loosening the bobbin tension or tightening the top, or both. Only ever do this in very small increments. But the good news is that even the "professional" quilters do not have perfect quilt backs - just have a look at them at quilt shows!

Tension problems


It sounds like your bobbin tension is too loose. If your needle went into the spare between the looper and the flat tensioner, the plate might need replaced, or removed and unbent.
