Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Brother XL-4012 Our Brother XL-4012 does not sew properly and stops (or stops, starts then little jumps) when the foot paddle is pressed! Basically, it always gets stuck then makes a grrrr grrrrrrr... sound before it starts sewing. We suspect the foot paddle is not transfering the foot pressure into even stitching (if that's the correct term for the action)! Also, a Brother shop owner mentioned about the belt? (though he did not actually see the machine)? But after taking the machine apart (cleaning, throughly oiling, checking etc), we did not see anything wrong with the belt! i.e No wear & tear, marks etc - all original with even teeth and so on. But what could this problem be? Please, help. Thanks

Ok,,when you press the foot peddle you will hear a continuous noise like a motor running that means its not the foot peddle, if not peddle is dying or motor carbon brushes are worn, this is a simple fix, we just need to narrow it down

E1 flashes on the message window of my brother sewing machine


Brother Computer Codes
  • E1: Make sure the presser foot is lowered before sewing.
    E2: You chose a stitch other than a buttonhole stitch or a bar tack stitch and you tried to sew with the buttonhole lever in the lowered position. Raise the buttonhole lever.
    E3: If you selected the buttonhole or tack bar stitch and start to sew with the buttonhole lever raised, you will get the E3 code. Lower the buttonhole lever.
    E4: You hit the reverse button while the bobbin winder shaft was moved over to the right. Move the bobbin winder shaft to the left.
    E5: On automatic sewing machines, the start/stop button was pressed while the foot controller was plugged in. Unplug the foot controller if you are using the automatic function.
    E6: This code tells you that the motor locked up because the thread is tangled. Untangle the thread, make sure the machine is threaded properly and that the proper tension is set before continuing.

Thread is catching & breaking somewhere inside the machine before it gets to the needle. brother XL-5600 machine


According to page 18 of the manual, the only place the thread could be catching would be the tension discs or the uptake lever.

Lift the presser foot and run a heavier thread or flat, unwaxed dental floss through the threading procedure to see if this will clean out a thread that may have jammed into the discs.

Always thread with the presser foot up and make sure the uptake lever catches the thread.

If this continues, take the machine to an authorized Brother dealer for service.

The presser foot came off Brothers sewing machine


position the foot under the shaft making sure the horizontal pin on the foot is in line with the horizontal groove on the end of presser foot fitting on the shaft. Lower the pressor foot arm and it should snap right on. If not, press it up manually. the directions should be in your manual.

Brother XL-6562 sewing machine is not feeding fabric through properly


Oil might help but it sounds like you don't have enough pressure on the foot. You can take the casing off where the light is and there is a screw back there that controls the tension on the pressure foot. It is not meant to be changed by anyone but a professional. I've changed the tension but it wasn't easy. If you are still interested let me know and I will try to explain.
