Hello, I recently purchased a brother lx3817 sewing machine and it works but doesn’t stitch, what could be the problem


hi Desiree.
this is all i could find out.
There could be several things that could cause the machine not to pick up the bobbin thread.

  • The upper thread could be tangled.
    Remove the thread completely from the machine.
    The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool.
    Re-thread the machine according to the directions in the manual.
One Point Advice Place a spool of thread on a spool pin.
One Point Advice Upper threading
  • Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race.
    Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.
One Point Advice Installing a bobbin into a bobbin case
  • You could be holding the needle thread too tight.
    Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.
  • The needle could be thread incorrectly.
    Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
  • The needle could be bent or improperly inserted.
    Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.

JUKI BOBBIN THREAD WILL NOT FEED


Most machines require that the bobbin in the case unspool in a certain direction its considered common knowledge I guess because it doesn't seem to be written in the text of manuals... but is indicated in the photos. make sure it's unspooling correctly.

Secondly. Please make sure you have the correct needle for your machine. Some machines do not use a 15x1 (most common needle) Let me show you. (see photo below) Clearly the 241x1 won't fit into your machine. BUT the 15x1 will go into the machine that requires the 20x1.... and the result is it won't pick up the bobbin thread.

Start there. Then check your timing.

make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case

if the machine still doesn't pick up the bobbin thread it's possible that

Needle won't pick up bobbin thread


check to make sure that the needle was put into the needle holder correctly
all the way up into the needle holder--flat side of the needle to the back side of the machine
if the machine still doesn't up the bobbin thread then
it's possible that when the needle broke that it caused the machine to go out of time which means it has to be retime at a sewing machine shop
