Question about Brother Sewing Machines

2 Answers

I have an NX600 that my $%^&* dog apparently pulled/knocked off the desk onto the ceramic tile floor while I was at work. Everything seemed fine until I started to sew and the electronic warning went off as the needle hit the presser foot. Changed the needle. This time I took one stitch and the tip of the needle broke. Changed the needle and manually turned the mechanism and I can see that the needle is grazing the front of the hole on the throat plate. Did the crash to the floor misalign something? Should I take it to a dealer (100 miles away) for an adjustment?

My machine stopped feeding the materal thru and got bunched up..then the needle seemed to be hitting on something when i was going sew so i had to quit sewing..i am a new owner so i need help

Please provide the make & model of your machine.

Check that the feed dogs have not been dropped, as for darning. Also, make sure the stitch length is set to at least #2 which would insure there is enough feed dog movement to pull the fabric.

If it's an older mechanical machine, it could be seizing due to old dry oil. If this is the case, it should be addressed before the machine suffers damage. If the needle has been hitting, the needle MUST be replaced because a bent, damaged needle can cause further damage, ie sewing machine timing could be knocked off and require service. Sewing machine timing is usually knocked off when a needle strikes where it should not.

I just got an old Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 385.17781. Everything is working fine except the reverse stitch. When the reverse button is pressed, the fabric doesn't move or sometimes movin

it sounds like the feed dogs & the reverse button need to be
checked at a repair shop,
to see why they are not responding to each other.

Not gliding the fabric through??

it sounds like you have a problem with the feed dogs, in the needle plate area check to see if the feed dogs are in the up position, you should be able to feel them with your finger & if not then the machine needs to be serviced

O.comI'm having a couple of problems: it seems like the feed dogs need to be adjusted because I need to gently pull the fabric through, from the back, otherwise the fabric won't advance & I...

if you have a manual check where your feed dog knob is, push the knob in the opposite direction,,if that doesn't help then something may be wrong with the feed dogs,,you should be able to see the feed dogs in the needle plate area & to feel them with your fingers.
you may need to have the machine serviced at a sewing shop

I have a Bro PE 400 D. The feed dogs do not seem to be pulling the fabric through without me pulling on it. Stitches are very small even when put on a longer stitch. Embroidery Unit works fine.

check the feed dogs under the needle plate to see if there up or down
if there down then the feed dog switch need to be moved to the up position
but if there up,,,then the machine needs to be serviced so the feed dogs & stitches can be checked

Will not feed the material through

Be certain the presser foot lifter handle is down so that it holds the fabric from the top. Then make sure the feed dogs (the little toothy looking things under the presser foot) are up or engaged. Often we'll accidentally knock the adjustment button/lever and the feed dogs go down into the machine and will not come up to provide the pulling action to feed the fabric through. Make sure the mechanics inside the machine are clean and free of dust. And if you see what seems to be a piece of felt around the feed dogs, that is actually lint and prevents the fabric from moving through easily. Use the brush that came with the machine to clean the feed dogs. Hope this helps and happy stitching!

Brother nx 600 bottom thread pulls out

Either the upper tension is loose or the lower tension is tight. Tighten the upper tension because it has numbers to refer to.
