Thread keeps breaking and underneath not sewing right


There may be a broken thread in the bobbin case effecting the lower thread tension. clean all parts and determine if the upper thread or lower thread is breaking if cleaning does not help. double check your machine threading and bobbin installation direction.
http://www.mastersewusa.com : this site has many operator manuals if the above suggestion does not help.

Brother ls 1717 keeps breaking upper thread. I have rethreaded and put in a new bobbin. Please help. What can I do to correct this problem?


Change needle--flat side goes toward back of the machine
Clean under needle plate where feed dogs are for lint
Clean bobbin area for lint or loose threads
Check tension 3 or 4 is usually good
watch the thread take up lever --some machine have a problem that the thread comes off the lever

make sure the needle & thread are compatable
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

Brother sewing machine ls-30 will not draw up the bobbin thread what should i do


Check the needle to see if it's damaged
Make sure the bobbin has a 3-5 inch thread tail
Then make sure the top thread has a 3-5 inch tail
Then hold the top thread tail with your fingers (away from the needle)
& use the hand wheel on the right hand side of the machine to slowly
Lower the needle in the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick
Up that way

I have a Brother LS-1717 Sewing Machine, it was given to me, without the manual. My thread keeps jamming and the thread is lose on the fabric. Also I have these dials on the front and I can't figure out...


You really need a replacement manual and Brother is excellent about providing them. Go to http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/ if your machine was sold in the U.S. If not, you'll need to contact Brother International.

Loose thread and jams usually mean the tension needs adjusting. If the loose threads are on the underside of the fabric, it means that the tension on the top thread is too loose. Be sure to have the pressure foot down when you adjust the tension and only move the dial a tiny bit at a time. Also, when you begin sewing, hold the top and bobbin threads securely in your left hand for the first few stitches. That bit of tautness helps prevent 'birds nests'.

Hope this helps!

Top thread not picking up the bobbin


Be sure that you have a new needle in your machine, and make sure that there isn't a piece of material stuck in the bobbin area.

I get loops on top and/or bottom of fabric during sewing. I have tried to adjust upper thread tension without any success. On brother website it is said that it might be lower tension or incorrect bobbin...


Top tension back to 4 and leave the bobbin tension as is.

Make sure you have a new needle for the type of fabric being sewn installed with the flat side to the back of the machine. A bent needle can sometimes go unnoticed.

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up and this will give proper tension to the stitch.

Check the manual to be sure you are threading correctly (always with the presser foot up) and that the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guides.

Take hold of the thread at the needle as you lower and raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread. Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Bobbin case on brother sewing machine


Well, from the picture I see that your bobbin is a front load as opposed to a top load.. if you tilt the front panel down, you will see where the bobbin and casing goes. Put the bobbin in the casing with the thread pulling from the right hand side of the casing making sure the thread in guided into the small **** on the top edge of the casing.. On the back of the casing the will be a small tab. Pull that away from the casing and enter the casing in to the opening for the bobbin. It should snap into place when you release the little tab.

Brother won't sew


My Brother machine is sensitive. You may have already done this, but...

Rethread the top, following diagrams and instructions precisely.

I have taken the front off the machine to find a nest of thread in the upper part of the machine.

Remove the bobbin and bobbin case, and reseat both.

Check the needle. If it is bent even slightly or not seated well, the whole needle shaft can lock up.
