If you bought it new and doesn't work, take it back. Sounds like it may be defective.

Best to take it in and have a Service done. You MAY have a junk machine, and how money do you want to spend on it?

SOURCE: Hello I have an old Riccar 6800 sewing machine

Hiya, the threading for this machine is pretty standard so you won't be going wrong there. Have you used a sewing machine before? The tension dial (on the extreme left) should be set at 5. The other dial to your left should be on blue zigzag with orange broken line. The dial on the right should be set at 0 and the bottom one on 2 - 3. I've been looking for a manual for this machine as I inherited this one. It took me ages to suss straight sewing out. Another thought is take it to a repairer and ask for a quote. Good luck.

Take the thread out, Take the needle plate out Watch as the needle comes comes down, make sure the hook is just above the eye of the the needle as it makes its pass by the scarf of the needle if not refer to my post on timing.

If, you do not have the manual, please go to Brother.com and download one for free. Also, to change your needle without a screwdriver, use a nickel or dime. Sometimes that works better than a screwdriver and won't strip your screw head.

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.

Most likely your top thread is not threaded correctly. Unthread and rethread. Check with your manual to make sure you have threaded correctly. Thread bunching up on bottom indicates top thread is threaded wrongly.

Keeps stopping up and becoming clogged and won't sew


I had the same problem happen, seriously doubt your setting are the issue. I was stringing the top half wrong. I forgot to go back up to the moving arm after the tension setting. the thread should 1)pivot around the top holder,
2)come down the front,
3)go through the tension setting,
4)back up to moving arm,
5)then back down to the needle assembly.
Helps to spin the main knob(that moves needle up and down) to route it through. After remembering to slide the thread through that moving arm it worked flawlessly. sewing machines are pretty tough little machines. hope my insight helps.

HI, my brother xl-2600i is hitting the metal on the bottom not going through to the bobbin. don't know what to adjust. help! thanks in advance.


First, check to ensure your needle is not bent. If its not bent then just adjust your metal plate at the bottom. Loosen the screws and shift the plate back, tighten the back screw first and see if the needle now passes the plate. If not make some more adjustments. Once the needle passes the plate properly, tighten the front screw. Hope that helps.
