Needle will not move; the bobbin shaft is in the

I have a Brother Xl-3200. The needle will not move; the bobbin shaft is in the correct position (left), which is the only solution offered in the manual. It seems to be catching on something, but short of opening the case I can't figure out what the problem is.

I don't know how to change needle postion when changing the foot to another one my machine is a brother xl 3022


Here's a manual for your machine:
Brother XL 3010 Operation Manual

It appears that your machine does not have the ability for the user to change the needle position. Instead, it seems that the selection of the specific stitch pattern determines where the needle is positioned, ie #1 appears to set the needle in the left position but other stitch and width selection will move the needle position.

Needle assembly doe not go up and down when the foot pedal is pressed but the bobbin does turn.


Make sure you have not disengaged the needle bar, such as when winding a bobbin. The manual says that when a bobbin is set for winding and the bobbin winder shaft is moved to the right, the needlebar is disengaged. If that appears to be okay on your machine, perhaps something in that mechanism is broken or misaligned preventing the needlebar from operating.

I was using my sewing machine when there was a loud cracking noise-the needle had broken and I replaced it but now the machine won't work. When I press the pedal I can hear the motor whirring but the...


Have you pulled apart the bobbin race area and checked for any bits of broken needle?

Is the clutch disengaged on the flywheel?

Otherwise, was the loud cracking noice coming from inside the machine case in which case it could be a gear internally that went and the needle breaking was just the result of this, in which case, time for a road trip to the service tech.

Brother XL-2022 Bobbin Problem


Removable parts are the race and bobbin case.

Raise the needle to it's at the highest position and set the race hook into the shuttle so the hook is at the lower left.

Re-place the hook race cover and move the levers or pegs to hold the cover in place.

Return the bobbin winding shaft on the top right of the machine to the Left Position. It may be stuck in the middle.
I had this same problem. After an hour or two of fiddling, this fixed my problem.

I have a Singer XL5000 machine, the normal looking bobbin is not spinning with the shaft and wont wind what have I done wrong?


Is your bobbin case holding in place right? See if you can jiggle it back and forth to see if it moves. If it does move, it may have unattached itself in it's inner-casing.

My bobbin case would just go back and forth in the casing. Make sure that your needle plate is inserted right, as it locks the bobbin case in. You may have to unscrew the needle plate, take out the bobbin case, place it back in - pushing it to your left as you glide the needle plate back into place. (go from front to back while inserting). It should catch your bobbin case and lock it into place. Hope this helps. If not I would suggest you take it in for repair. Good luck.

Put the thread through one of the holes. Then put the bobbin on the spindle. Pull about 3 or 4 inches out of the hole and hold on to it. Start winding the bobbin. After about ten turns, or when the winding thread is secure, you can stop the machine and cut off this 3 or 4 inch tail. To insure that the thread winds up and down the bobbin and not off the top or bottom, there is probably a metal bobbin tension disk that the thread must pass around before it goes to the bobbin. It is probably on the left of the machine and may or may not be part of a thread guide. The thread must pass around this disk on its way to the bobbin in order to put tension on the thread so it will wind properly. If you can't find the disk, which is a small metal button or screw with some type of somewhat moveable spring cap, you can just get the thread to pass through your thumb and forefinger. Hold your hand 6 or 8 inches to the left of the bobbin and pass the thread between your thumb and forefinger so that it makes the thread go in a direct straight line to the bobbin. Pinch the thread only enough to keep it taught but not tight and let it flow through your finger to the bobbin. The thread should go up and down evenly on the bobbin. If not, move your hand up or down to position it so the thread will wind up and down smoothly. It will not be necessary to move your hand once you find the correct position needed for winding.
