SOURCE: FEW STITCHES DROP IN BOBBIN

Dropped stitches troubleshooting:
1>change to a new proper needle (proper needle means quilting needles for free motion, stretch needle for knits, leather needle for leather, microtex needle for micro fabrics.....etc.) of proper size. Most sewers never need a needle smaller then an 80/12 when sewing. Smaller needles bend more easily causing more problems.
2>If a new needle doesn’t fix the problem, remove parts from bobbin case area (as best as easily allowable) and clean out all the lint thoroughly, and oil with 2-3 drops of oil where friction occurs (turn hand wheel and look for rubbing)
3>If still skipping, try a different spool of thread (Yes, thread can caused skipped stitches, not common but I see it).
4>If you haven’t solved it yet, sounds like you could need to make a lower level adjustment like hook timing.
Hook Timing:
To time the machine, you want the tip of the hook to pass just over the top of the eye of the needle when the needle is in the left most or right most position depending on which side the eye of the needle will be higher

SOURCE: Setting Machine on Different Stich Patterns

Turn the dial for stitch length so that the black line that separates the stitch length numbers from the buttonhole functions is in the 12 o'clock position. This engages the gears that operate your red stitches.

SOURCE: 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.

My Bernina 830 sewing machine will not do a zigzag stich


We are assuming that the zigzag width dial is at the widest position but the needle will not move laterally for zigzag... The following logic should be applied for Bernina machines 530, 730, 830, 930 machines with a guided motion zigzag cam.
----------------------
1. The switching pawl (lever on the top cover that switches from zigzag to cam patterns) may be engaged in the cam or automatic pattern side. Check that first.
For zigzag application, the lever must be engaged in the zigzag side (lever pulled back toward the operator). The stitch width dial is then used to provide your choice of width.
----------------------
2. It is common, due to oil varnishes, that the switching pawl that is actuated by this lever is stuck between the zigzag and the automatic position, thus preventing the transmission of power to either the zigzag cam or the automatic pattern cams and to the needle.
The best way to detect this is to remove the top cover. You can then switch the lever back and forth to observe if the switching pawl engages firmly into either of the receiving forks. If the switching pawl is sticking, a few drops of certain solvents are applied by a technician on the switching pawl support. The switch lever can be rapidly switched back and forth until you see the switching pawl engage into the receiving forks and you hear a crisp clicking during each engagement. This repair can be permanent or it may create only a temporary fix due to the amount of oil varnishes on the parts.
If the machine is heavily varnished, it suggested that the parts be disassembled and cleaned for flawless performance. If the machine had been sprayed with WD-40, petroleum based solvents like mineral spirits will not break down these varnishes.
A caution regarding solvents...DO NOT USE (WD-40) as your solvent. WD-40 is a marvelous product for its intended application as a water displacement device. It is not to be used for lubricating a sewing machine. Note: "Bernina Technical Information bulletin #1" issued in 1982, forbade the use of such spray lubricants and solvents. SewTechnical Home
