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 an old brother Hz5 b1. Does anyone know that if this machine comes with a foot pedal? If so, where to get one? Thanks


There were generally 3 ways of running a sewing machine: foot treadle, knee control, or foot control. If yours has the plug for the foot control, take it to a local sewing machine shop and see if they can set you up with a foot control.

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!)

Brother Riviera 1681 Sewing Machine eBay

If you watch this video during the straight-stitch segment, you will see the needle is in the left position.

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.

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.

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;

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