Question about Brother XL-2230 Mechanical Sewing Machine
My wifes xl-2230 has worked fine up until now.
The machine has bent a needle,which I replaced with another but same thing happened almost immediately,I have taken off the metal plate and plastic cover and it appears that the whole bobbin and holder turns and gets under the needle.Is there a clip or something that should stop this turning,does it just need a drop of oil or is there anything else that can be causing this.
the whole upper assembly may have come out of alignment when the machine bent the needle, the upper cover may have to come off, and study the inner metal area where the needle is attached for alignment bolts or screws, maybe one has come loose. On ours if you choose the zig zag and adjust it all the way out it will do that everytime. maybe download the user manual at www.brother.com and see if theres something in there also.
