SOURCE: Needle doesn't line up
With the pattern dial set on the straight stitch, you can align the needle by turning the width dial and setting it to about 2.5 ( so that the needle will stay in the center).

position the foot under the shaft making sure the horizontal pin on the foot is in line with the horizontal groove on the end of presser foot fitting on the shaft. Lower the pressor foot arm and it should snap right on. If not, press it up manually. the directions should be in your manual. If you don't have your manual, you can get it online at www.brother-usa.com

Remove needleplate and clean out the built up lint between the teeth of the feeddogs.
When moveng from Feed Down to Up, rotate handwheel one revolution to re-engage.
If neither is a problem and your manual is of no assistance, take it to a service centre to check it out and quote.

Your bobbin is probably too loose. When you set a new bobbin, stop every now and then and try with your fingers nail if it's nice and tight enough. Not extremely tight, but tight, not loose and moves easily when you set your finger between the threads.
With most fabrics (99%) the plate is fine at the the top position, just with very thick and "fragile" (satins etc) you might need to adjust it.
Settings: Tightest tension for the thinnest materials, more loose for the thicker ones, better have a test piece, it rarely goes under 5 anyway.
