You may be sewing too fast, using cheap thread or your tension is off. All of which can cause your bobbin thread to break.

What is the factory tension setting for the Brother LS-2125i sewing machine?


you probably wont find it listed anywhere as it is from experience and changes with different material thickness and needle size
SO how to set tension
thread the machine and adjust the tension until you feel a drag on the thread
now thread the needle and sew a piece of scrap material
if the thread bunches up underneath then increase the thread tension until it sews properly
if the bottom thread is pulled to the top or the thread keeps breaking loosen ti off a bit
when the stitch is being properly formed , both bottom and top threads should meet at the center of the two materials being sewn

Thread is caught inside a Brother LS-2125i


Lift foot. Remove two screws attaching metal plate to machine. Put screws on the sticky side a a piece of tape for temporary storage. Remove knot built by sewing without material in machine or extremely loose upper tension.

MY BROTHER MACHINE NO. LS-2125i THREAD BREAKING WHEN SEWING?


Thread brekage can be caused by several things but start simple by taking off the needle plate then thoroughly clean the sewing mechanism and add a few drops of oil, then check the threading is correct. replace the needle. Always use quality threads and make sure that the thread is not to heavy for the size of the needle (it should pass easily through the needles eye). check that the needle hole in the plate is not bent or damaged and peppered with needle marks, a damaged plate will cause many problems. Finally, make sure that the tensions are not too tight this can be a major cause of thread breakage especially if poor quality thread is used. ( check thread by breaking it by hand, it should offer good resistance to breakage, if it breaks easily then discard it. hope this is useful, best of luck.

Appearence of loop and no zigzag stich on ls-2125i brother


The loopy stitching is usually do to threading the machine with the presser foot down.

Raise the presser foot and re-thread or pull about 8" of thread through the needle and see if the loopy stitches go away.

This may also be the issue with the zig-zag stitch.

When the machine is threaded with the presser foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter as it should for the tension to control the flow of thread to the needle. The thread then feeds too fast and the stitching is distorted.

LS 2125i haveing problems getting the top thread


I don't know about now, but in the old days you had to pull out about three inches of thread through the eye of the needle & hold it with plenty of slack while turning the wheel on the end of the machine slowly. Once the needle disappeared below the plate & then reappeared you could stop turning the wheel & slowly pull on the end of the thread you are holding to pull the thread from the bobbin up. Of course there must be thread on the bobbin spool & it must be some extra hanging out. (not broken off flush with the spool)

NEEDLE KEEPS COMING UNTHREADED WILL NOT CATCH IN FABRIC


Most machines need to have the thread extend to the back of the machine in order not to come unthreaded.
