Question about Brother LS-2125 Mechanical Sewing Machine
This machine was my mother's and I don't have a manual. I have used several different machines, but never a Brother's machine. I threaded the bobbin like my singer machine and followed the diagram on the hood of the Brothers to thread the machine, but when I manually lower the needle to pull upt the lower thread from the bobbin to begin it doesn't pull up the thread. It doesn't seem to try and catch the thread when looking at the bobbin.
This is going to sound silly but its one of the first things I check for... make sure that the needle is in correctly make sure that the flat side is towards the back as you place it in the needle clamp. better yet take the needled out all together and put a new one in just to be sure that it isnt bend

check that the needle is in the right way round i.e. with cut out on the needle facing into the machine. if this is fine then check that as the needle comes back up from the lowest point that it goes to, that the point on the bobbin case passes just above the hole in the needle, i.e. in the middle of the cut out.(if not it needs re timing) if threaded a small loop should appear at this point for the bottom bobbin to catch if not slacken the top thread and try again.

readjust the hook to just grab the thread loop as the needle raises it will take a few tries to get the exact setting for the hook (maybe you will see a mark on the hook shaft to show you where the hook's set screw was located before it slipped)

There are manuals avilable online to purchase for the singer machines, SOrry I was not able to locate a site that has them for free.

First please double check that the flywheel clutch in engaged and not in bobbin winding mode, ie the inner knob is locked by holding outer flywheel and turning inner wheel away from you.
If you remove the needle plate and bobbin cover and turn the flywheel manually can you see the hook rotating at all?
If the needle is going up and down and the rotary hook is not rotating, then my guess will be that the pinon gear down in the free arm area has failed and will need to be replaced. You don't say what model but if it is a star series you should be able to remove the top plate on the free arm by undoing one screw and exposing this area to confirm this. If its a Stella or Lotus it won't be so easy to view. Either way, if its a Swiss made Elna parts are still available and there are serviceman around who can do this repair. If you are in the USA I would suggest you browse www.whitesewingcenter for parts/repair info on Swiss Elnas.
Or try www.sewingpartsonline.com and search by your model number to see the parts available.
