Without more description of the stitch symptoms, the only suggestion is that the tension is too loose. Whether it is the upper, bobbin, or both tensions, we cannot answer without more information.

SOURCE: loose bottom stitch on brother se 350

Hi, general rule of thumb:: loops on the top, problem on the bottom.. Loops on the bottom, problem is on the top.. When threading your machine, stop just before you thread your needle, put the presser foot down. Try pulling the thread. If it pulls easily, the thread is not thru the tension wheel right. If it pulls hard, you got it right.

Sounds like either the bobbin case tension is too light or is not in the tension at all.

Consult your manual for how to place the thread in the tension and retry. Increase the bobbin case tension if necessary.

The top tension may be set too high.

Brother ls 2020, 3 dials for tension, ALL I WANT TO DO IS MEND. what is the # just for mending? why are these machines so hard to work?


A manual may help:

User Guide Manuals LS 2020 Others Brother

There is only one tension dial, the round knob above the needle. Standard setting is the midway point between high & low number. The other two knobs are the stitch length and stitch width dials. With the stitch length knob, zero will make the machine sew in the same place, so you'll want to set it probably midway (the higher the number, the longer the stitch). With the stitch width dial, zero will sew a straight stitch--the higher the number the wider the stitch). Spend about 30 minutes reading the manual and you'll probably be able to use your machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread so the thread will seat properly.

My Brother LS-2125 does not stitch forward - only in reverse.


What stitch selection have you made, anything to do with the buttonhole? If, so make sure that you let it go through the cycle then, pick a straight stitch pattern with a longer stitch length. You can also go online to brother-usa.com and see if there are any other suggestions

Loose stitch with loops on top of material i got the right needle and bobbins what do i need to do i have ls 2125 brother


General rule of thumb is this.. If it loops on the bottom the problem is on the top..
If it loops on the top, the problem is on the bottom.
Sounds like #1 your bobbin is wound very loosely , #2 your bobbin thread has to go thru its tensioner.

I'm having troubles with my brother sewing machine


Your tension is loose on top. Adjust your tension dial up a little at a time until you have a desirable stitch. Before adjusting the tension, you may want to look into the tension and see if there are any threads caught between the disc. If so remove them. Another common problem is that your machine is not threaded properly, make sure the pressure foot is in the up position when threading and if needed consult your manual for the proper threading diagram.
