I was in the middle of a project. This keeps happening, the thread & bobbin won't allow me to make a single stich. I've tried to take the bobbin out, rethread it, and rethread the top. Can anyone help


Basic Tips for All
  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.

My machine is a designer 2 but I encounterd a problem with my stich getting all tangled. tryed to clean the bobbin case and under, stich is still tangling bad.


Be absolutely sure that the machine is threaded correctly, with the upper thread clicked into the tension discs (the presser foot MUST be raised when you thread so the tensions discs are open to receive the thread) and bobbin thread clicked into the bobbin tension slot. Change the needle - a bent or blunt needle can cause tangles. Hold onto the thread tails for two or three stitches when you first start sewing to avoid them being drawn down under the fabric and making a mess.

check you needle to see if it's damaged
check to see if the top thread to see if it's come off the thread take up lever
check to make sure there's no lint or loose thread in the bobbin area

HI, I haven't used the brother 2125 sewing machine for months. There was no stiches coming out after I started it this morning. I tried many times. The motor is fine, threads from up and the bottom are...


Totally rethread your machine and insert a new needle, you may have a bent needle. Your thread may be tangled, and your bobbin may not be inserted right. If, you don't have your manual go to brother-usa.com and download a manual for free. It should answer all of your questions

Handwheel won't turn, take-up lever not accessable


Make sure the bobbin winding settings are "in-active" - this could be the position of the pin for the bobbin or the center knob on the handwheel, depending on the model you have.

Open the throat plate and bobbin case to be sure there aren't any threads tangled there. This can stop the handwheel from turning.

Sewing machine not making stiches


At first, my machine was getting all tangled under the fabric and then would stop working because it was tangled in the bobbin area. Now the bobbin area is staying clear but there are no stiches being made. I have no idea what to do. melissashulga@yahoo.com

Top thread wraps around bobbin


Is it birdnesting under the bottom or it is actually getting tangled inside the bobbin case? I've had my machine for almost a year and don't think I've had your exact issue. Sometimes, when you do a stich over a already stitched portion, you may have a problem with the bobbin and I just generally stop and start it again. It is important that you use the correct needle and also use a good embroidery thread and stablizer. Another thing suggested is changing the needle after about every 5 designs. Also, check the bobbin case to make sure there's no fuzzies caught in it. I use "canned air" like you use on computer keyboards. I also only use 40 weight emboidery thread for the top and actual bobbin thread for the bottom. Other threads can really jam everything up. So it's been trial and error to find the right combinations. Good Luck!
