Put the thread through one of the holes. Then put the bobbin on the spindle. Pull about 3 or 4 inches out of the hole and hold on to it. Start winding the bobbin. After about ten turns, or when the winding thread is secure, you can stop the machine and cut off this 3 or 4 inch tail. To insure that the thread winds up and down the bobbin and not off the top or bottom, there is probably a metal bobbin tension disk that the thread must pass around before it goes to the bobbin. It is probably on the left of the machine and may or may not be part of a thread guide. The thread must pass around this disk on its way to the bobbin in order to put tension on the thread so it will wind properly. If you can't find the disk, which is a small metal button or screw with some type of somewhat moveable spring cap, you can just get the thread to pass through your thumb and forefinger. Hold your hand 6 or 8 inches to the left of the bobbin and pass the thread between your thumb and forefinger so that it makes the thread go in a direct straight line to the bobbin. Pinch the thread only enough to keep it taught but not tight and let it flow through your finger to the bobbin. The thread should go up and down evenly on the bobbin. If not, move your hand up or down to position it so the thread will wind up and down smoothly. It will not be necessary to move your hand once you find the correct position needed for winding.

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

make sure that when you insert the thread *top hole bottom to top* that you turn the bobbin itself until you hear a click *that is the spring sliding into the ****.

I have a brother xl 5500 it keeps breaking the top thread no matter what i do


Go back to your instruction manual, some available online. to Re-thread the machine completely and make sure you are threading correctly. If that's not it, you may have thread jammed in a mechanism and it needs a technician's tools to get at it properly.

First time on Brother XL 2610, threaded correctly but thread will make loops and then pull apart. WHat went wrong?


try adjusting the upper tension
change the needle
if you recieved a instruction manual with the machine, look for the part that tells about what fabrics go with which needles, & the thread should move easily thru the needle eye with out any problem

Can you tell me what kind of thread should be used with my Brother XL 2600? I can't seem to download the manual online.


If you go to this site and read the manual online go to page 28 it will tell you what thread to use with what fabric. It would not let me copy/paste

Scroll past the "download the document" go to "table of contents" click on view all then scroll down to fabric/thread/needle combinations click on it and it will bring you to the page.....

http://www.retrevo.com/pdf/18806dj992/30/FABRIC%2C+THREAD%2C+AND+NEEDLE+COMBINATIONS#q=Brother+XL-2600

Essentially
60-80 weight thread for medium and light weight fabrics
50 for heavy weight
50-60 for stretch
30 for top stitching

hope this helps lew

Thread keeps breaking


go to www.brother-usa.com and download your manual for free, it will have a troubleshooting guide to tell you what to do. Some ideas are that it is not threaded right, tangled thread or wrong needle for the fabric you are using. I am sure there will be the answer in your manual.

Check your threading path with your manual. If, you look up your manual online at brother.com it can be made larger and you may spot your mistake easier.

Thread is catching & breaking somewhere inside the machine before it gets to the needle. brother XL-5600 machine


According to page 18 of the manual, the only place the thread could be catching would be the tension discs or the uptake lever.

Lift the presser foot and run a heavier thread or flat, unwaxed dental floss through the threading procedure to see if this will clean out a thread that may have jammed into the discs.

Always thread with the presser foot up and make sure the uptake lever catches the thread.

If this continues, take the machine to an authorized Brother dealer for service.

Thread tension for Brother XL 2230.


If you have pattern dials set correctly then I might guess that one or more sets may have been missed when the thread was being set up in the machine. most of these models show either arrows or numbers for each or way the thread needs to be routed.
