Testimonial: "I would love a copy of the manual. You can get a belt at a sewing machine repair shop. I took mine to a place in Vancouver, WA. I'm sure a place in Seattle would have one."

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

SOURCE: I have a 40 year old Brother machine. It now runs

Yes, it is the capacitor, or the condenser as you call it has comletely short-circuited electrically bypassing the rheostat, which causes the motor to run at full speed. The cure is simple...cut it out of the circuit. On Singer machines the culprit is usually located inside the foot pedal box...probably on your Brother machine also. They were meant to supress noise from entering into your power line, which causes interference when listening to AM broadcasts, which everyone at the time did. The capacitors themselves will either be in one or two round cans or square flat cans. Simply snip the wires to the capacitor(s) inside the foot controller box and your machine will once again work like normal!

SOURCE: F2 error on brother sewing machine..what does it

On mine this means the button for reverse is stuck. Just wiggle the button a bit and it will pop out again. It can get pushed in at a slight angle and catch a bit, but nothing is broken... I don't know if this is the only thing F2 means, but it is one thing!

I have the vintage Brother Riviera 1681, Model F no manual. For STRAIGHT, needle sews only in far left position, but it zig-zags just fine. How do I get needle to middle or right position?


I suspect that the left needle position is the default for your machine. Looking at the photo here, it certainly looks like that is the case. (What a nice looking machine!)

If you watch this video during the straight-stitch segment, you will see the needle is in the left position.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qflwon_EVSU

Some of the older machines were made this way--I have an old Nelco that is left default--tough machine, sews almost anything! Unfortunately, if you want a center-needle machine, you would have to buy something else. (Forget about any of the new plastic machines on the market. This Brother will out-sew and outlast them any day of the week.) On the other hand, this is probably a great machine, and once you get accustomed to the left needle, you'll be able to do anything that a center needle machine can do.

FWIW, a sewing machine whose bobbin loads on the left is usually left needle default.

Hiya. I have a very old singer, with the number F2590752. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction to find a manual please? Many thanks.


It's not likely you are going to find a manual for a vintage Singer. However, the older Singers didn't change a lot from one model to the next, so you should be able to find information on multiple web sites and videos that would be helpful.

    Manuel for Brother sewing machine H23-B1 model 130


    Could you double-check the model number? Brother doesn't list "H23-B1 model 30" or any part of that as a home or industrial sewing machine model number.

    Many older vintage sewing machines only have sentimental value. Most are not worth more than $35 in the Blue Book, but that doesn't mean that you can't get more for it if someone has used that particular machine in the past and wants one now! I recommend checking out http://www.sewvacdoctor.com for more information.

    I need an instruction manual for a Jones sewing machine model 865


    The information did not display when I click on solve.

    The best information I have is that Brother Corp bought out Jones Sewing Co in 1968. If they rebranded the sewing machines I can not tell. You can search;

    http://www.brother-usa.com/homesewing/retiredmodels/retiredmodels.aspx

    and see if anything matches your machine from the retired models.
