Question about Brother XR-35
My brother xr 34 is not working properly. the thread under neath keep bunching up and then the machine seizes. i keep trying to adjust the tension in the bobbin by turning the little screw and that is not helping. it probably needs to be oiled and im not sure how to do that. i have no manual

Needle in correct? Be sure your bobbin is not in upside down and turning the wrong way. Possibly the hook that the bobbicase fits in/on has been hit by a needle and caused a burr that is catching the thread as it comes around. The burr would have to be polished off or hook replaced. The machine could be slightly out of time also.

If you getting loops on the bottom of your material, you need to
re-thread the top of your machine. I say this because it is very rare
when you will have to adjust the bobbin tension. But if you must,
looking straight down at the bobbin as a clock- at 6:00 is the bobbin
tension adjustment- lefty lucy, righty tighty. Hope this helps.
Make sure the needle is inserted in the machine properly- a good rule of thumb is the flat side of the needle should go to the opposite side of the last thread guide. Also make sure the machine is threaded correct
There is no standard tension for any machine to be set at. They start at four when they are brand new, however, after years and years the springs become compressed. You could start at four and then play around with it from there. If you are getting loops underneath the material, you are threading the machine incorrectly.

it had nothing to do with the shuttle, it is the upper thread is not in the tensioner. lift the presser foot up and thread the machine even if you have to hold the thread on the top and pull on the bottom to make it go in the tensioner it will help, if a machine loops on the bottom it is the upper tension if it loops on the top it is the lower tension
