Question about Brother Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I've got a brother RS-36 and have just got it out after not having used it for a while. When I depress the pedal the neddle moves up and down as you would expect but the machine does not draw the fabric through - it sews in the same place and then jams - what am I doing wrong?

My brother rs-36 wont pick up yhr boobin thread please can you help


Try installing a brand new needle. Verify the needle is installed with the flat part facing the correct direction.

If has no positive affect, then it's possible the timing is off on your machine. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

The foot control on my husqvarna 545 viking sewing machine quit working. What's going on?


First not familiar with exact product , however troubleshooting is common.
This is if pedal can be unplugged and you have access to volt meter (these are cheap enough under $20 and have other uses to support purchase) , set meter to measure continuity, set meter to lowest ohms to start. Before using on pedal touch the red and black leads together, touching the result should be zero on meter, not touching infinity or blank. Connect leads in various manners to the pins or sockets move pedal. If your meter reads a high number while moving pedal you have an open circuit.
If you see the meter fluctuate as you depress pedal that would be expected ( normal) but then when fully depressed go high ( open) your pedal switch is faulty. The variation in resistance as you push pedal slowly is what varies the speed.

The needle does not move when the pedal is depressed, though the bobbin wheel and manual wheel do move, could this be attributed to a broken internal belt or?


Have you chosen a stitch pattern and a length, and made sure that the foot control plug is inserted correctely? Make sure your electrical outlet is good also. Good luck

Neddle screw wont tighten neddle in


There is a small metal rod about 1/2" long that fits into the hold in front of the screw that holds the needle secure. I didn't realize that I had dropped the rod until I could not tighten the needle. I found the rod, put it into the hole and was able to tighen the needle.

does the hook assembly move when you turn the handwheel? If no, then your hook drive gears are shot.
