I'm wondering if the bobbin spool is set to wind? Or the clutch is disengaged (older models).

It sounds like the shaft that drives the needle up & down might be frozen. If you can open the end of the machine, I would spray it with wd-40, let it sit for a few hours and see if that helps.

My Brother vx-800 is sewing the top thread into the machine, how can I fix it?


try changing the needle
clean under the needle plate & in bobbin area for lint or loose threads
take the bobbin out & re-insert the bobbin in to the bobbin case
if these suggestions don't work then it would be a good idea to have the machine checked

Top & bobbin thread will not sew


Most likely the needle is in backwards. Weird I know, I have no idea why but if the needle is in wrong, it either hits the bobbin and breaks or won't grab the thread at all. Good luck.

Cannot not pull up the bobin thread this is so simple


Make sure it is threaded correctly and make sure the needle is not in wrong. The flat of the needle should be to the rear of the machine and there is a groove that runs the length of the needle which will be towards the front of the machine.

Brother VX-1120- The needle is not picking up bobbin thread.


I had the same problem with my brother vx-1120 sewing machine. I set the needle to lowest position by using the hand crank. Then I loosened the knerled set screw that holds needle in place. Then I moved needle shaft till the eye of needle is just lower than the hook on the shuttle loop maker. It made my mechine work. There are instuctions for ajusting timing on machine but I think these mechines are built to not fix and throw out. Just because there where no ajustment marks at all on machine, any machanical machine will needed to be ajusted sometime.
