Check the bobbin winder rubber......remove the top cover and take a look. Remove worn rubber and use as a sample when you go to the Brother Store....also have your model number handy. If you cannot access easily, phone Brother store and ask for a quote to replace.....if it is any more serious they should confirm with you prior to doing additional work.

The Rubber O-Ring on my XL-2230 turned into a gel like substance.The rubber actually decomposed. So I went to the hardware store and found a replacement O-Ring made of a better material. Winds great now.

How do I use the double needle


first you take out the single needle, then you insert the double needle the same way you would the regular needle

the flat side goes toward the back of the machine inserted all the way up into the needle holder
then you take the 2 spools of thread & put them on the spool holders

then you thread the machine with the first spool just like when your going to sew normally with one needle & then you thread the first needle
& then the second spool is threaded the same path as the other spool,, ever guide & then you thread the second needle

then you make sure you have thread tails for top & bobbin thread of 3 to 6 inches long, pulled toward the back of the machine before you start to sew

happy sewing

When drawing thread up from the shuttle needle wont go down


Sounds like your hook to needle timing is off. When you sew through thick materials, a lot of machines have issues where the needle sticks in the fabric but all the internal parts shift and this causes the hook to needle timing to go out. The begging signs of this is skipping stitches. You will have to have you local independent sewing store do this adjustment for you

Hope that helps :)

HOW TO THREAD THE BOBBIN


Take the thread-end from the thread spool to the left, around the bottom of the "silver" "button"; across the top of the button and back to the right to the bobbin winder.

Run the thread-end through a hole in the side of the bobbin spool, hold onto the thread (pull through about 5" of thread) and place the bobbin spool onto the the bobbin winding pin.

You may have to turn a bit to the left or right to get the spool in place. Push the bobbin spool to the right; against the bobbin winding wheel.

Press on the power pedal - keeping hold of the thread-end.

As the bobbin fills, the thead end will twist.

When you can not longer hold on. Stop the machine and clip the thread end then continue to wind the bobbin.

Thread tension for Brother XL 2230.


If you have pattern dials set correctly then I might guess that one or more sets may have been missed when the thread was being set up in the machine. most of these models show either arrows or numbers for each or way the thread needs to be routed.

Bobbin holder turns and keeps bending needles


hi,

the whole upper assembly may have come out of alignment when the machine bent the needle, the upper cover may have to come off, and study the inner metal area where the needle is attached for alignment bolts or screws, maybe one has come loose. On ours if you choose the zig zag and adjust it all the way out it will do that everytime. maybe download the user manual at www.brother.com and see if theres something in there also.
