Question about Brother SE400 Computerized Sewing and Embroidery Machine
Needed to replace the top thread holder and when taking off the case a part fell out. Need to see the end view where all the gears are. It's 2 pieces held together. Thread went thru it and there is a spring thru it. It now sews but bottom thread is bunching up. No tension!

You may have the bobbin case in wrong. I have this machine, and I know that it is really easy to put the bobbin case in wrong. Try taking it out and making sure that the little stop is in the front and it is seated down in there and able to wiggle back and forth. My experience with this machine, until the other day when my cat knocked mine off the table and knocked something out of alignment, is that it just works. Any time mine hasn't worked, it has either been dirty, needing oil, threaded wrong or the bobbin case wasn't seated right. In other words, it has always been my fault.

Top tension back to 4 and leave the bobbin tension as is.
Make sure you have a new needle for the type of fabric being sewn installed with the flat side to the back of the machine. A bent needle can sometimes go unnoticed.
Always thread the machine with the presser foot up and this will give proper tension to the stitch.
Check the manual to be sure you are threading correctly (always with the presser foot up) and that the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guides.
Take hold of the thread at the needle as you lower and raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread. Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

I don't have this machine, but the tension on the bobbin is usually set by the tiny screw on the bobbin case. insert the bobbin into the case so that the thread unrolls counter clockwise. Make sure that there is no lint in the bobbin area.
