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.

When the needle is not pulling the bottom tread


is this the first time you use a sewing machine? if you are very familiar with the way the thread is pulled out of the bottom spool, I'd say you need a technician, here is how to install bottom spool in case you don't know. after filling spool, pull thread out through the small gap on the side of the spool holder, then holding the small arm on the holder outward insert the spool holder in to the socket and release after fully inserted. after that the thread should come out the top by manually turning the machine to lower needle

Singer quantum XL-150 how do i thread this machine?


All Singer models would have arrows/numbers to guide your top threading from the spool pin to top thread guide, for most machine start from your thread spool pin, to a thread guide follow arrow down then up into the take up lever and down to the needle thread guide then into the needle hole. Assuming you have wind and install the bobbin thread into the bobbin case, turn your hand wheel towards you makes the needle bar goes down,keep on turning till the needle bar is fully up again, pull the end of the top thread to pick out the bobbin/bottom thread. With your material/fabric under the presser feet, apply the presser feet lever down, you are ready to sew.

I want to know how to fix thread from top to needle


Always start from the thread spool pin, install your thread spool to the spool pin & put on the spool holder, pull end of thread to go thru the top thread guide then down to the tension disc(follow the arrow pointer if there is),up to the thread take up lever arm from left to right and down to the needle thru the needle clam guide(just below its needle clam screw)then enter the needle eye from front to back. Turn your hand wheel towards you to bring needle bar down into the bobbin case, keep turning till needle comes fully up, pull out your top thread end & this should bring up the bobbin thread then you be ready to sew.

How do you thread the machine


With the machine off, lift the presser foot and raise the needle to the highest position with the hand wheel. Put your spool of thread on the pin and pull the thread through the thread guide on the top rear of the machine. The thread goes under and then over the guide heading down towards the tension disc. Bring the thread down on the right side of the disc and up on the left (left being closer to the needle). Hold onto the thread on both sides of the tension disc and pull the thread up to seat it in the disc. Continue pulling the thread up in the left channel and up to the take up lever. Get the thread up over the back of the take up lever so that it goes into the slot of the lever. Bring the thread down to the guide above the needle and then thread the needle. Leave a few inches of thread behind the needle. Make sure that the needle is correctly positioned in the needle holder.

Constant problems with tension and the thread breaking from the top threader


check your thread spool for a snag on the plastic. Sometimes thread will catch on that "thread keeper" and once it catches and jerks free, it can cause the spool to spin the other way thus winding the thread on the spool pin.

Another thing to check is to make SURE that when you thread the upper thread that the pressure foot is UP. While you have the pressure foot open, run a piece of unwaxed dental thread through your tension discs.

Also make sure that your needle is large enough for your thread. To test this take another needle of the same size as the one in the machine and clip a piece of thread about 6 inches long. Thread the needle ... grasp the tread by both ends... tip the thread side to side... if the needle doesn't move well, your needle is too small. If it moves well but not too loose...it fine.

I have an husqvarna Viking mega quilter18x8 with the imperial frame. I am having problems with the tension and the tread keeps breakingms with. The tension and the tread keeps breaking. HELP!!


If the thread breaks at the needle and is feeding smoothly from the spool, you may have the tension too high. It is impossible to say what the setting should be because the knob rotates all the way around several times. Loosen it off until you see needle thread pull to the back of the quilt, then tighten until it just balances the interlocking of the stitch in the fabric. Test with little swirls, that's most likely to pull needle thread to back.Also, check that the needle is properly installed and that the hook to needle timing and clearance are good.Nesting of thread underneath usually happens if the foot lifter is left up or the tread is not fully in the disks of the tension unit.

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

Hi, I would sew , up to 3 inches of sewing on the cloth the needle would stop and when I look underneath the fabric where I just sewed. The tread is all bunched up and tangled. The top threads looks fine...


re-thread the entire machine. Pay special attention to the take-up lever and the tension assembly.


Always have the presser foot in the UP position when threading the machine. This opens the tension disc to allow the thread to nestle inside the assembly.

Make sure the thread passes through the take up lever

Make sure you inserted the thread in every thread guide


I always recommend a sharp needle. You may not notice any slight bends, burrs or dullness in the needle which would throw off the timing and the stitch quality.


SPOOL CAP - If you have a horizontal spool pin a spool cap is very important. Its also very important the spool cap covers the end of the spool of thread but make sure its not too big or it will throw off the thread tension.


TOP TENSION DIAL - The setting should be between 3 and 5 on most machines.


The best way to know if you threaded the tension assembly correctly is to put the presser foot in the DOWN position. Now take the thread from the right of the tension assembly and pull. Is there tension on the thread or does it pull out very easily? If it pulls out easily you threaded it incorrectly. Try it again

also check under the needle plate for lint

and in the bobbin case area for lint or loose threads

Threading an Empisal Overlocker - Model S4D


All sergers thread the same way and sergers have to be threaded in a certain order. I made a jingle out of it...
upper looper
lower looper
right needle
left

It would be best to have a tweezers handy to help with the thread and threading.

always be sure the lower looper thread goes over the top of the upper looper then out the back. I would be surprised if your thread guides are not color coded.
If you look at the top thread guides or the spools. First from left to right thread the 3rd spool, then the fourth spool. Then you thread the right needle (the second spool) then the left needle (1st spool.
The lower looper can be tricky because you have to thread it from the back of the looper to the front.
Pull the threads out the back from under the foot. Then go ahead and run it slow watching to see if it starts making a chain. It should. If not do it over again.
Good luck
