Question about Brother LS-1217 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Turn off the power, open the throat plate. Raise the needle to the highest position and remove the bobbin case. Clean the area and replace the bobbin case and throat plate.
Thread the machine with the presser foot up to see if this will eliminate the looping stitching.
Be sure to use the correct size needle for the type and weight of the fabric being sewn. There should be a chart in the manual for the machine. There should also be a suggested setting for the tension.
If you need a manual, check the Brother website for a download.
