ARE YOU TRYING TO WIND A BOBBIN? YOUR HAND WHEEL CAN BE PULLED OUTWARDS AND THE DOGS WON'T WORK. THE ADJUSTMENT ON THE TOP WILL CHANGE THE LENGTH OF THE STITCH SO THE LENGTH OF THE FEED DOGS IS CHANGED.

SOURCE: Feed Dog on Brother 270d stuck in up position

I finally figured this out. The feed dog switch in the back was not hitting anything when I moved it back and forth. There is a screw on the underside of the machine that I tightened. It seemed to do the trick. Thanks.

SOURCE: tension setting XL 3500 Brother

Hi, and welcome to FixYa. Normally, the default top tension setting on most machines is between 4 and 6. Brother manuals usually contain detailed information about tension and how to determine if your tension is set correctly, so check that section of your manual when you have time....if you don't have your manual...

you can find a copy to download for free on Brother's website (I added a link to the web page below). The same web page has other information about your machine that you might find helpful now or in the future. Even if you have the manual, it is worth a visit.

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/ca/en/model_top/HomeSewingMachine/hf_xl3500t3510eus.html?reg=us&c=ca&lang=en&prod=hf_xl3500t3510eus

If you and other readers have a minute to rate my answer, it helps me better understand what readers are looking for when they come to the FixYa site for help.

Best of luck, and enjoy your machine. Don't hesitate to comment if the link doesn't' work, or if you have more questions. Cheers!

SOURCE: Brother XL-6562 sewing machine is not feeding fabric through properly

Oil might help but it sounds like you don't have enough pressure on the foot. You can take the casing off where the light is and there is a screw back there that controls the tension on the pressure foot. It is not meant to be changed by anyone but a professional. I've changed the tension but it wasn't easy. If you are still interested let me know and I will try to explain.

SOURCE: how can i tell if my brother 3500 XL is out of

Try a simple Zig Zag, if it will not pick up thread on both sides, it is likely timing.
Did you re-thread and insert a new needle first ??
Timing guide is HERE

Can't get the feed dogs to come up on my Singer Futura XL 400 sewing machine


Hi Susan,

Happy New Year!

try engaging the "Feed Dog Switch" and turn the flywheel on the side with a gentle back n fourth motion. Sometimes they get stuck with all the fuzz and buildup in the switch mechanisms from use. If that doesn't get you going, a visit to the authorized repair shop might be needed.

I have a brother XL 5130 should I have either a plate or lever to drop the feed dogs? I also misplaced my manual can you send me the English ssection thanks Barbara


This machine does not have a feed dog drop, but it does include a feed dog cover that covers them so you can do free motion. The cover is a little piece of black plastic that kind of resembles this: 3d18346.png

Here is the link to the manual,

Feed dogs


I was having trouble with this too, but found more help online...you have to switch the dog feed back to 'up'....then turn the needle wheel toward you....the feed dog should snap back into place :)
Hope this helps :D
