Brother xl-2600I sewing machine thread problem

My new Brother xl-2600I is having a thread problem. Stitching is fine, but at the end of sewing when I pull the garment off the machine there are two threads coming from the bottom instead of one. It is happening about 80% of the time. I changed and re-wound the bobbin, re-threaded the upper thread, changed the needle. Nothing helps.

Top thread stuck near bobbin

I just had the same problem with my Brother xl 2600i.
  • Upon close inspection, I noticed and felt a tiny bur on the silver piece right where the thread was sticking.
  • I filed it smooth with an emery board.
Still not as smooth as it was before, but at least now it works.

I just bought a brand new Brother XL 2600I and it was working great for the first day , next morning i change the thread to actually sew not just test strips . I keep getting bunches of thread or if i

Most likely your top thread is not threaded correctly. Unthread and rethread. Check with your manual to make sure you have threaded correctly. Thread bunching up on bottom indicates top thread is threaded wrongly.

Looking for Sewing Machine Thread for beginner!

Using thread different than you would normally use for practice will give different results. This will frustrate both the student and teacher. Not a good idea.

Loops in thread on back of fabric and sometimes the upper thread is coming out of eye of needle

You have to leave a 3-5 inch tail after you thread your top thread machine and hold for the first few stitches.

Learn how to change the needle in my brother xl 2600i sewing machine

If, you do not have the manual, please go to 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.

You should not have to adjust the bottom tension when using sewing thread.

There is a tiny screw on the side of the bobbin case - left/loose; right/tight.

Mark the screw head slot and edge of the bobbin case with nail polish or sharpie so you know where you started.

If you are having a stitching problem that appears to be loose bobbin thread, it may be that the machine was threaded with the presser foot down.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up.

When the presser foot is down when threading, the thread cannot enter the tension control and you get loose, loopy stitching.
