Question about Brother XR-65t Mechanical Sewing Machine
Hi there. Can anyone help me? The bobbin thread on my Brothers XR65 tangles up thread and becomes a knotted mess when I sew for a moment or two. Never happened in the past. What I am doing wrong? I am following manual instructions for loading bobbins. My machine is unusable because of this. Can anyone please tell me if I've lost a spindle or what? Thanks Johanna
Hi, Is it your bobbin thread or the top thread wrapping around the bobbin. I just got a used PE150. The top thread keeps wrapping around the bobbin. It is not picking up the bobbin thread. Did you find a solution for your problem?

I am having a very similar problem, to tell you the truth, with the hours I've spent trying to figure out what is wrong, I'm tempted to hand sew! The top thread keeps wrapping itself around the bobbin or the bobbin chamber, then it tries to eat the material, then the thread either breaks or the needle won't move anymore. I have taken everything out and cleaned all of the parts. I have rethreaded the needle a million times, rethreaded the bobbin in both directions several times as well. I have adjusted my tension on both the bobbin and the needle. The only think I can think of now is a warped needle, so I guess that is my next project.....that and maybe the cheap thread thing could be an issue. I'm really at a loss after those two things are done. I guess it will be time to start doing it the old fashioned way. Women sewed by hand for hundreds of years, I guess it will just mean my projects will have some extra love in em....and a lot more time......I have an old singer by the way, so apparantly this happens with all models from what I can tell.

My top thread wraps around the bobbin, tangles and then the top thread breaks. An experienced seamstress told me to adjust the bobbing tension. I didn't even know there was a bobbin tension. I've been sewing for about 2 or 3 years, and this has never happened. I didn't even touch the bobbin tension, so I don't understand why I need to adjust it. She said the top and bottom tensions need to coordinate, like if one is loose, the other should match. Also, she asked if the needle was warped. Sometimes this throws the operation off. I hope this helps. If you have any other suggestions for me, please let me know via e-mail @ [email protected]

My Brother XR-65 suddenly jammed up after I had been sewing all evening. I took it all apart, and cleaned it, to no avail. I never thought to re-thread the top thread - that fixed it.
I could not figure out what caused it to tangle like that, something must have slipped out of place at some point.

I had the same exact problem with my Viking and after trying everything to no avail I finally found out it was the cheap thread. I took out my meijer thread and put in Gutterman and it worked like it had never jammed before. DON'T USE CHEAP THREAD!! Hope that helps.

I am having the same issue all of a sudden when I changed out colors. I tried chaging tension and it doesn't change anything. I don't know!! Annoying
