Question about Brother XL-2610
I changed out my thread and bobbin and when I went to continue my project, the zig zag stitch that I was previously using now doesn't seem to want to work! The machine moves like it is zig zagging, and the bottom looks right, but the top is a very stretched out zig zag, almost like a straight line. I also tried an overlock stitch and that seemed really loose on the bottom side..? The straight stitch is ok once I play with the tension. But I'm sewing the same fabric (fleece) and same threads as I've been using for about 12 other projects. This is a new machine for me, < 1 month old.
I have: adjusted upper thread tension, tried different thread/bobbin, cleaned bobbin case out, changed to a new needle.
Glad you figured it out yourself. I was suggest to check your needle location. Many times people will have the needle in the left or right slot and it can not zigzag unless it is in the center slot.

Because it is almost a straight stitch but the needle continues to move in a zig zag fashion is reason to believe it is in a long stitch. By changing the number of stitches per inch there will be a very noticeable looking zig zag stitch.

I had the same problem and it was so frustrating! It was happening to me because I wasn't using the right size needle. Go up a couple of needle sizes and see if that helps.

The tread only breaks in the needle. what can i do . i don't get to sew anything . I tread the needle and get everything ready and start the machine and as quickly as that the tread is broken and the machine has not sewn at all.

SOURCE: Shirring fabric?
When putting your shirring elastic on the bobbin, don't thread the elastic through the bobbin holder,adjust the stitch length longer,and loosen the tension, other wise if you want to put it through the bobbin holder you have to loosen the tension screw on the bobbin holder, and then you have to adjust it back for ordinary sewing,

Mine did the same thing. The needle is probably to high. Do not insert the needle all the way to the top. Lower it a bit and it should zig zag!
