Put the thread through one of the holes. Then put the bobbin on the spindle. Pull about 3 or 4 inches out of the hole and hold on to it. Start winding the bobbin. After about ten turns, or when the winding thread is secure, you can stop the machine and cut off this 3 or 4 inch tail. To insure that the thread winds up and down the bobbin and not off the top or bottom, there is probably a metal bobbin tension disk that the thread must pass around before it goes to the bobbin. It is probably on the left of the machine and may or may not be part of a thread guide. The thread must pass around this disk on its way to the bobbin in order to put tension on the thread so it will wind properly. If you can't find the disk, which is a small metal button or screw with some type of somewhat moveable spring cap, you can just get the thread to pass through your thumb and forefinger. Hold your hand 6 or 8 inches to the left of the bobbin and pass the thread between your thumb and forefinger so that it makes the thread go in a direct straight line to the bobbin. Pinch the thread only enough to keep it taught but not tight and let it flow through your finger to the bobbin. The thread should go up and down evenly on the bobbin. If not, move your hand up or down to position it so the thread will wind up and down smoothly. It will not be necessary to move your hand once you find the correct position needed for winding.

make sure that when you insert the thread *top hole bottom to top* that you turn the bobbin itself until you hear a click *that is the spring sliding into the ****.

That's ok, needles get bent all the time and sometimes broken too. Just give it a new needle (look on the shaft at the top of the needle, you should see a screw to loosen for removing the needle). Note that the needle is made with a flat side on the shank to locate it properly, watch how the bent one is positioned when you remove it.

Check your threading path with your manual. If, you look up your manual online at brother.com it can be made larger and you may spot your mistake easier.

Feed the thread thru one of the holes (the hole that will be on top) going from the middle of the bobbin thru to top. pull up about 2 inches, push the bobbin over to start winding and before pressing the foot, hold the 2inch piece sticking up. HOLD TIGHT. after the thread is wound about 25 times, stop winding and snip the 2inch piece level with the top of the bobbin. Finish winding.

Will not sew forward


never spray wd 40 on a sewing machine use only sewing machine oil it is made to not gum up. it sounds like the rev. button is jammed that means the spring is more than likly broken or bent I would suggest takeing it to a service center.

Spring not connected behind bobbin casing


It is most likely the feed dog return spring. A cam lifts the feed dogs up and the spring pulls them back down. It hooks to the feed dogs bracket and goes straight down to the machine frame, there should be a small hook or post for it. You may be able to sew slowly without it attached.
good luck!
