Question about Brother LS-2125 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I just bought the machine and can not get the tensions right on the top and bottom stiches to match. What are the correct settings for basic straight stiching?
SOURCE: How do you thread the
most of the newer machines have a drop in bobbin that the bobbin turns anti clockwise if it is in correctly lower your needle foot and it should pull up the thread.

SOURCE: I have a quantum cxl.
The needle shaft sticks to the curved arm and won't come down because a piece of plastic, about an eighth of an inch thick had broken from age. It prevented the shaft from staying up on the needle arm. Open the cover, try to stitch decorative stitch and see what I mean. Purchase a package of 4-10 by 1/2 nut and bolt pack. Screw the nut all the way onto the bolt. Using needle-nosed plyers, Carefully bend the curved arm slightly, and place bolt into the hole on the top of the needle shaft. Nut will keep it in place. Lowering the needle shaft using wheel, carefully bend arm back in place. Try decorative stitch. It should work. It does for me.

The loopy stitching is usually do to threading the machine with the presser foot down.
Raise the presser foot and re-thread or pull about 8" of thread through the needle and see if the loopy stitches go away.
This may also be the issue with the zig-zag stitch.
When the machine is threaded with the presser foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter as it should for the tension to control the flow of thread to the needle. The thread then feeds too fast and the stitching is distorted.

It sounds like your upper tension is too loose. A good place to start adjusting is at the number three on your tension dial, but you need to pay attention to how the stitches look rather than what the number on the dial is. I wrote a Tip on Adjusting Tension. Take a look at that and see if it helps.

If the bottom stitching is a mess it usually means that the TOP thread is not threaded correctly. What happens most of the time is that the thread is not snug in the tension discs. First re-thread your machine with the presser foot UP and when you get to the tension discs (sticking up at the back of the machine) hold your thread like you're flossing and go back and forth in the disc to make sure you have tension on it. You should hear a little click when it's in there. (Test it...floss it on and pull it off so you can hear the click.) If the thread isn't between these discs your bobbin thread will be loopy. Finish threading the machine and you should have no problem now. Also, make sure your upper tension is set at 4 and your stitch LENGTH (on the right front) should be 2.5 or 3 for a normal stitch. Hope this helps. Let me know! Thanks for using FixYa
