My brother ls2160 is new. nothing is moving.

Brand new? Take it back to the vendor where you purchased it. No use fussing with a unit that is defective out of the box.

Why is my brother ls2160 is sewing fine on cotton but not on the material I am using. Its a stretchy silky kind of material. What am i doing wrong?

You may need to use a walking foot with your machine as stretchy fabrics are hard for the feed dogs to 'grip' and pull the material through under the needle.... you will probably need to change needle as well... there should be a helpful video on YouTube that will tell u all about sewing with stretchy fabrics and how a 'walking foot' works... hope that helps.

My Brother LS 2160 is threaded but not stitching

Hi there Kathryn... when you load/thread the top cotton through the machine.... and then through the eye of the needle.... do you also load the bobbin case... or is it already in there and loaded as per instructions... ? What I normally do... is load up the bottom and top threads first.. making sure to put the top thread through the needle and make the thread end go through and behind the 'foot'... when placing on fabric to try... I make sure to load the fabric... with the top thread's tail going out through the presser foot and behind your foot.. sometimes.. if its the thread (some machines don't like certain threads)... I will manually (wind the right hand wheel) so that the machine does a few stitches.. before I use my foot pedal!.. I have both a serger/overlocker... and a Brother 8500 (sewing/embroidery machine).. I have been sewing for over years now...
You will need to change your needle... when you've used it for more than 6-7 hours continuously.. OR you notice that the stitches are not as they should be... in your fabric...

I am having issues with threading my machine. I have followed the instructions but every time I sew on the machine the thread on the top sews correctly but underneath the cotton gathers up. What am I doing...

If the thread is bunching under the material it is the top tension. While threading the machine be sure the foot is in the up position until you are done threading it. If you have tried that and it still bunches you need to tighten the tension a bit at a time until it starts sewing correctly. Be sure you are starting with a clean machine and that the thread is not too large for the needle ....

hope this helps.

The correct way to fix the needle

With the foot in the up position, loosen the screw that holds the used needle and take it out (throw it away, a bent needle is useless)
Insert the new needle from below, making sure that the flat side is towards the back, and the needle is inserted all the way up. Then carefully tighten the screw as tight as possible. Check that the needle doesn't "wiggle".
