Question about Brother Sewing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
If you bought it new and doesn't work, take it back. Sounds like it may be defective.

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.
