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.

I don't know how to change needle postion when changing the foot to another one my machine is a brother xl 3022


Here's a manual for your machine:
Brother XL 3010 Operation Manual

It appears that your machine does not have the ability for the user to change the needle position. Instead, it seems that the selection of the specific stitch pattern determines where the needle is positioned, ie #1 appears to set the needle in the left position but other stitch and width selection will move the needle position.

I was given a brother cs-8150. The manual says it will operate without foot feed. I tried to use auto sew and machine tells me to change speed controller mode to off. Where do I do that.


Not able to find any online instructions for your machine, so here goes. There may be some confusion as to what foot feed means.

I believe foot feed refers to the feed dogs. When you disable the feed dogs (drop them), then you must manipulate the fabric manually--used mostly for darning or free motion quilting. In essence the feed dogs are no longer moving the fabric for you. Instead, you manually move the fabric and control the speed at which it stitches with your foot control. Perhaps that is why you need to turn off the speed control because you will determine the speed with your foot.

Foot control refers to the foot pedal that you use to control the speed that the machine sews (much like the gas pedal in your car). Some machines have the ability to sew without the use of a foot control unit. To do so, there is usually a button or lever somewhere to start and stop the machine. When activated, the machine will continue to stitch until you stop it.

Hopefully this will help you find a resolution.

I bought Brother sewing machine Model XL 2230, And could not get a good stitch. Keeps giving me loop either on top stitch or down stitch. Dont know if the single needle can't do straight sewing and dont...


The foot is on the side. Make sure it is clean. Take off the plate and remove the bobbin cleaning all the lint and thread out with q-tips. Oil if needed. Make sure you are using the same thread in the bobbin as on top. Rethread the machine making sure you do it correctly. Change needles using Schmetz as it is shorter and I have found Singer and white label needles are too long and cause problems and well as break easily as they hit the bobbin and cause looping. Not sure what you need to know about the foot. It should have a handle on it so you can put it up or down. Google Brother model XL 2230 and download a manual to find lots of info about your machine.

Does the Brother XL-5340 do an overlock stitch? If it does do I need to change the foot and to which foot? Thanks


There is an overedge stitch (page 38) that uses the regular presser foot.

If you do not have a manual, you can download (free) from the Brother site.

Poor stitch on underneath when sewing on material


Re-thread the machine with the presser foot up and see if this improves the stitching.

When a sewing machine is threaded with the foot down, the thread cannot properly enter the tension control and then when you begin to sew, then tension cannot control the flow of thread as it is designed to do.

Refer to the manual and do the routine maintenance as recommended and this will help keep the machine working as it should.

Can not get the brother XL2600i to stitch the top thread does not catch the thread coming out of the bobbin. so it does not stitch


Make sure the needle has been properly installed - flat side to the back of the machine.

Thread the top thread with the presser foot up - always.

Make sure the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the correct guides.

Hold onto the thread tail at the needle and lower (by hand and not the power pedal) and raise the needle to pull the bobbin thread to the top of the machine.

Take both thread tails under the presser foot and to the back of the machine before you begin to sew.

Brother XL-6562 sewing machine is not feeding fabric through properly


Oil might help but it sounds like you don't have enough pressure on the foot. You can take the casing off where the light is and there is a screw back there that controls the tension on the pressure foot. It is not meant to be changed by anyone but a professional. I've changed the tension but it wasn't easy. If you are still interested let me know and I will try to explain.

ok,,when you press the foot peddle you will hear a continuous noise like a motor running that means its not the foot peddle, if not peddle is dying or motor carbon brushes are worn, this is a simple fix, we just need to narrow it down
