Question about Brother Sewing Machines
My Brother sewing machine has suddenly started grabbing the fabric in the bobbin area and making big knots that I cant get out of the feed dog area without taking everything apart. Ive changed the needles, thread, bobbin, cleaned everything and oiled. Still happening. What else can I check?
Remove the top thread, When you re-thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat in the tension disk. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point and retest your machine.

It indicates that you have a situation called " bird nesting" and that is a result of the needle thread tension being too loose
needle tension should be tight so that when you pull the thread to thread the needle you have to exert a bit of effort to pull the thread through the tension plates
you can adjust up or down from that feeling
thread thickness affects the tension and needle eye size also affects the tension as a small eye on large thread makes the thread movement hard indicating less tension or a big eye on a small thread affects the tension as the thread slips easily and needs more tension to pull the bobbin thread up to the centre of the material being sewn
