THE BOBBIN HAS ONE METAL PART ON TOP AND ANOTHER PART THAT KEEPS THE BOBBIN FROM MOVING FORWARD. TURN YOUR HAND WHEEL AND WATCH WHICH PLACE DOES THE THREAD GET STUCK. IF IT IS THE ONE ON TOP THEN IT WILL NEED TO BE RAISED SLIGHTLY BY MAKING A PULL WITH NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS. (VERY SLIGHT) IF IT GOES UNDER IT BUT STOPS AT THE AREA WHERE THE LITTLE INDENTATION IS THEN YOU WILL NEED TO LOOSEN ONE OF THE SCREWS AND SLIGHTLY TO ALLOW THE THREAD TO PASS BY. THE THREAD HAS GOT TO PASS THESE AREAS OR YOU WILL NOT SEW.

SOURCE: thread constantly wraps around spool pin

Cut a round curcle of fabric the size of the spool from a piece of felt. Put a hole in the middle and put it under the spool of thread. If this does not work you can purchase a small net that fits over the spool. It is designed to keep the thread from coming off the spool except for being pulled through naturally.
Hope this works.

SOURCE: I have a Brother SE-270D

its the problem of the timing belt in your machine its extra loosen or extra tightned or is slightly came out of its position or finally broken.
as the machine is proper just missing the proper speed as it should be .
it is running continuosly as you stated.
check the timing belt and make it proper if its worn out and needs replacement this is how its done

There is an adjusting screw on the right side of the machine head. Follow the motor bracket to the machine head and loosen that big old screw or bolt which will raise or lower the motor giving you slack to remove or replace the belt.

feel free for further queries
thanks

SOURCE: thread knotting around bobbin case

hello, I had the exact same problem and could not find the solution until i took my machine to my sewing sensei and i solved my tedious problem. It was actually not a tension problem at all but a threading problem. Make sure you have threaded your bobbin correctly and that when you pull on the bobbin thread that the bobbin turns the right way. (mine must spin anti clockwise to work)  Make sure that when you pull up the bobbin thread using the needle that it is not over the feed dogs connective bar but under it. A big problem when the thread gets caught around the bobbin case wheel is that the thread is looped around the feed dogs once and that causes the thread to get caught around the bobbin wheel. In conclusion, thread the bobbin correctly and read over your instruction book before spending the money to get it fixe in s shop.

SOURCE: machine jammed while sewing - it acts like

It sounds like there is something (a thread) jammed under in the gears you would need to take the bottom off to get a better look

SOURCE: when drawing thread up from the shuttle needle wont go down

Sounds like your hook to needle timing is off. When you sew through thick materials, a lot of machines have issues where the needle sticks in the fabric but all the internal parts shift and this causes the hook to needle timing to go out. The begging signs of this is skipping stitches. You will have to have you local independent sewing store do this adjustment for you

Hope that helps :)

The top thread keeps breaking


Is the thread feeding freely from the spool? Sometimes thread can get caught on something on the thread spool which causes it to snap at the needle. I suggest unthreading, and running your finger around the rim of the spool to be sure there is nothing for the thread to catch on. Then be sure to use your spool pin disks to ensure the thread is feeding well.

MY THREAD GETTING WRAPPED AROUND THE BOBBING WHEN TRYING TO SEW THE TOP THREAD WRAPPING AROUND THE BOBBING CASE AND DRAGGING CAUSING THE TOP THREAD TO BREAK ?


It sounds like the lower shuttle is out of place. You should be able to take out the bobbin case and unlatch the shuttle. It will probably be in 2 pieces. Clean out the dust behind it and replace the shuttle pieces. You may have to fiddle with it a little to get them back in place. Then you can test it by manually turning the wheel. Make sure the bobbin is placed into the bobbin case and that the bobbin turns in the direction that you pull the thread.

Good luck.

HOW TO THREAD THE BOBBIN ON THE BROTHER VX-1250!


Hello

Place a spool of thread over the spool pin, which is a vertical spoke located at the back-right of the top of the sewing machine.

Take the end of the thread from the spool and carry it left along the top of the machine and around the bobbin winding tension disc, which resembles a small button.

Pass the end of the thread through the small hole in the side of an empty bobbin, threading from the inside. Push the bobbin down onto the bobbin winding shaft, which is a small metal spoke at the front-right of the top of the sewing machine.

Click the bobbin over to the right, then manually twist it in a clockwise direction until you hear the spring on the bobbin shaft click into place.

While pinching the end of the thread that is coming out of the hole in the side of the bobbin, slowly press your foot down on the foot controller so that the thread from the spool winds around the bobbin. Let go of the thread end and continue pressing until the machine stops automatically, which means the bobbin is full, or when the bobbin has as much thread as you need for your project.

Cut the thread connecting the bobbin and the spool, and trim the thread end coming out of the hole in the side of the bobbin. Click the bobbin over to the left and remove it from the bobbin shaft.

The Lower Thread;

Turn the balance wheel (the disc at the top of the right side of the sewing machine) toward you to raise the needle to its highest point. Lift the presser foot with the lever located behind the needle shaft. Remove the extension table, if it is attached.

Open the shuttle cover, a small door located on the front of the sewing machine, underneath the needle. Remove the bobbin case, which you see held in the center of the shuttle race, by pulling the hinged latch on the front of it.

Pull about 4 inches of thread from the bobbin and press the bobbin into the bobbin case so that it will turn clockwise when you pull on the thread end. Slide the thread into the slot on the side of the bobbin case, over the tiny tension spring and into the delivery eye.

Hold the bobbin case by its latch so that the metal finger is pointing upward. Press the bobbin case -- with the bobbin inside -- into the shuttle race. The metal finger should fit into a vertical notch at the top of the shuttle race, and the bobbin case should be held securely in place.

Close the shuttle cover.

The Upper Thread;

Rotate the balance wheel toward you until you see the take-up lever raised to its highest position. The take-up lever has a metal loop at the end of a narrow spoke, and it will emerge from the top of the thread guide, the vertical **** at the front of the machine above the needle.

Take the end of the thread from the spool and take it left along the top of the sewing machine, around the rear thread guide, then toward yourself and around the front thread guide.

Take the thread down the front of the machine and from right to left around the tension control dial, which is the round knob to the right of the needle. Pull the end of the thread so that the part that passes around the tension control dial is taut and flush with the front of the machine. You should feel the thread slip between the two tension discs.

Carry the end of the thread upward from the tension control dial and through the eyelet at the end of the take-up lever. Bring the thread downward and hook it behind the thread guide, which is a small wire loop at the top of the needle. Insert the thread end through the eye of the needle from front to bac

Pull a tail of about 4 inches through the needle and pinch the end of it with your left fingers. Turn the balance wheel toward you with your right hand until you see the needle lower through the needle plate then rise back up again. You should see the lower thread looped around the upper thread. Untangle it and pull both thread ends until they have approximately 6-inch long tails.

If you have lost the original instruction manual that came with your Brother sewing machine, you can download one for free at the Brother website.

Why does the shuttle hook grab the spool thread instead of the bobbin thread? It wraps the thread around the bobbin and binds the machine up.


The shuttle hook is suppose to hook the needle (spool) thread and loops it around the bobbin case to form the lock stitch. Is it possible that something was adjusted without proper clearances as to allow the thread looping around the bobbin case to do so without catching up where it should pass through freely?

My Memory Craft sews great until I start to quilt or use one of the different stitches and then the stitches either skip or become so tiney I can't pick them out.


Skipping could indicate you need to use a larger size needle.

Tiny stitches could be save reason, or the top thread is hanging up.

Sometimes the thread can wrap around the spool pin or catch on a rough surface on the end of the spool.

Be sure to use the correct size spool cap and if the thread is wrapping around the pin, a thread net can help.

Give the machine a cleaning according to the maintenance section of the manual for your machine, including cleaning the feed dogs, bobbin case, shuttle and surrounding area.

Make sure the feed dogs are up unless you are free motion quilting and the presser foot down.

This may seem elementary.........just trying to cover all the bases.

My machine is a Brother XL5600; I think I am having a shuttle hook problem. When I lower the sewing needle to "catch" the bobbin thread and pull through- it won't catch and pull through. I have changed out...


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the thread completely from the machine. The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool. Re-thread the machine according to the directions in the manual.

Place a spool of thread on a spool pin and check the upper threading.
Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.

Also please check that the bobbin is installed in its case rightly. Needle thread is too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.

The needle could be thread incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
The needle could be bent or improperly inserted and install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Needle will not pick up bobbin threat


Try flipping the bobbin spool so the thread comes off in the other direction.
Forcing means that the needle has been jammed against the sewing plate ant the needle is now out of timing with the bobbin pickup.

The needle does not pick up the bobbin thread


Hi!

There may be so many reasons due to which the needle does not pick up the bobbing thread like---

The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the thread commpletely from the machine. The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool. Re-thread the machine. Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race. You could be holding the needle thread too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle. The needle could be thread incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back. The needle could be bent or improperly inserted. Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.
