I'm having a problem threading my brother sewing machine model XL 3010


1. Clean up any loose thread in the bobbin area.
2. Pull on the bobbin thread while it is out. It should give a tension that is equal to the top tension of three. You'll have to approximate. Adjust the screw tension on the bobbin. It is the screw nearest to the thread exit hole on the side.
3. Put it back in.
4. Now, the top tension should be at about three. If it still allows a little wad on the bottom of the fabric you can adjust the top tension by tightening a small amount and monitor each time you adjust. The wad should go away.

Brother xl-2600 As I am sewing ( not thick material) the thread keeps breaking, also over seams it is not sewing through. Then, when my bobbin ran out, went to change it and when pulling the needle down...


try changing the top thread tension to 3 or 4

also rethread the machine just in case the thread is hung up somewhere

take the bobbin out & put the bobbin in reverse of what you did before

you said you changed the needle, check to make sure it in correctly,, the flat side goes to the back of the machine, push it all the way up before tightening the screw

My Brother XL-3022 sewing machine has been running perfectly for years, then all of a sudden today I went to use it and while threading the machine I am not able to get the upper thread to draw up the...


There are a few easy and free things to check:
1- try a new needle 2- check that the needle is inserted the right way (one side has a long slot, usually this goes toward the back of the machine) 3- flip the bobbin over 4- clean any stray threads/fluff in the bobbin area
Another possibility is that the machine's timing is off- the bobbin thread isn't in place to be picked up at the right time- and that would need to be fixed by a sewing machine mechanic. But if this started suddenly, and not after hitting a pin or otherwise jarring the machine, then it probably can be solved with one of the easy/free solutions above. Good luck!

I place the fabric on the machine, lower the foot and apply pressure to the foot peddle, when the machine begins to sew fabric is pulled down and the lower thread tangles, the machine make a crunching...


This is easily solved. Before you start sewing make sure your upper and lower threads are long enough for you to hold before lowering the presser foot. If these threads are too short they both get carried down into the bobbin along with the fabric and cause a big tangled mess. Always hold your threads at the back of your work with your left hand then lower your pressure foot and don't release the threads untill you have taken several stitches. Keep holding these threads during backstitching at the beggining of a seam too. Works like magic.

I have a new machine at it was working fine...suddenly it began sewing the design with bobbin thread. Rethreaded, changed bobbin, and changed needle (over and over). Also, change tension. No help. No...


The way the thread passes thru the bobbin tension on this machine makes it real easy but sometimes the thread doesnt go where it is supposed to. Try doing it several times, you can feel the thread get tension when it fits in correctly.
Good Luck

Feed the thread thru one of the holes (the hole that will be on top) going from the middle of the bobbin thru to top. pull up about 2 inches, push the bobbin over to start winding and before pressing the foot, hold the 2inch piece sticking up. HOLD TIGHT. after the thread is wound about 25 times, stop winding and snip the 2inch piece level with the top of the bobbin. Finish winding.
