With the pressure foot in the up position, pull on the thread right before the eye of the needle to ensure its not getting snagged up on anything.

Make sure your top tension dial is in the middle setting (usually 4 or 5)

What type of thread are you using? Cheaper thread such as Coats and Clark and old thread is very weak. Check out your local independent sewing dealer and have them recommend thread to you based upon the fabric your using.

hope that helps,
Chris

Why is my Brother SQ9185 Sewing Machine thread bunching up on the back side of the fabric?


That is called thread nesting or bird nesting. Usually it is because it is threaded incorrectly (sometimes the thread jumps out of a thread guide or the take-up lever), the upper thread is not seated in the tension disk, or the upper tension is incorrect.

First thing, install a brand new needle.
Second, remove the upper thread, RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--make sure the correct thread path is followed.
Third, check that the upper tension is set at the midway point between high & low number.

Test. Adjust the upper tension as needed. Re-test. Tension is correct when the upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Upper thread keeps braking


Usually thread breakage is a result of incorrect threading or the thread tension set too tight.

Install a brand new needle.

Remove the upper thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning (verify the threading sequence is correct).

Check that the tension is set at the midway point between the high and low numbers.

Retest. If still breaking, there are other less common problems (thread/needle incompatibility, burrs or knicks catching the thread, etc) that may be the cause. Check the following web sites:

Cotton breaks on Brother Embroidery Galaxie 2100 machine


Try turning down your top tension setting a bit. If its at 4 or 5, i would turn it down to about 3 ish. Cotton thread is more brittle than polyester and rayon thread.

Hope that helps :)

Borother super galaxie 2100 tension on upper thread is solid will not pull through tread help !


Set the tension control at mid-range and raise the presser foot.

Make sure the thread is not caught on the spool cap or wrapped around the spool pin.

If the problem is not at the spool, and you still cannot get the thread though with the presser foot up - there may be an internal jam.

Open the tension (set at zero), and with the presser foot up, try to pull through a heavier thread - don't tug, you just want to "floss".

If you can't pull the thread though by hand, you will need to take the machine in for service.

If you try to open the enclosed threading area, you may not get everything back as it should be and it will still need to go into the shop.

Brother Super Galaxie 2100 Buttonhole lever not working


I have a problem with my CS 8150 which sometimes tells me to lower the pressure foot even though I had already did it. What clears the problem for me is that I eject the thread cassette and re-install and I can go ahead and sew. Try that to see if it will quit telling you to pull down the lever.
