Question about Brother XR-65t Mechanical Sewing Machine

2 Answers

Sewing machine sews only in reverse.

The reverse lever does not work. the machine worked in both directions the last time I sewed a month or 2 ago. The machine is a Brother XR-65. I have never had a problem like this in all the years I have been sewing. I am presently trying to contact someone locally to get it fixed. Is there a way I can do it myself?

To all the people with this problem. What has happened is the reverse mechanism has stuck, this is often due to not being used for a while or the machine has not been oiled properly, which is hard to do for a user as you virtually have to remove all the covers.
If this particular machine has a screw on cover at the end where the handwheel is, remove it and look inside, you will see the mechanism, what you need to do is push it back out, then oil it but make sure you work the reverse button in and out while you oil it and check it works freely, then just refit the end cover.

I can not thread a bobbin to save my life. Help.


first, google your sewing machines name and model number and "manual" or "users guide" and you can find the link to the PDF download. Here is what I found:

1 Raise the needle to its highest position by turning the balance whell toward you (counterclockwise) and raise the presserfoot lever. Slide the button and open cover.
2 insert the bobbin so the thread comes out in a clockwise direction. Use bobbins intended for this machine. !CAUTION! Be sure the bobbin is set so the thread unrols in the correct direction. If the thread unrolls in the wrong direction, it may cause the thread tension to be incorrect or the needle to break.
3 Hold the thread end, push the bobbin down with your finger, and pass the thread securely through the thread cutting groove.
4 Replce the bobbin cover. Place the left tab in place then press lightly on the right side until the cover clicks into place. *insert the cover so that the end of the thread comes out from the back of the cover.

good luck and G.Bless!

Bobbin tangles on Brother xr 65


This was happening to me too, I reversed the bobbin feeds and it has not tangled since then. I was orignally feeding the bobbin from the left side and now i feed the thread from the right. It works great this way.

This happened to me too! Make sure your buttonholer isn't pulled down and locked in to where it's making the machine sew backward. That's what happened to me.
