Question about Brother XL-3500
I have a brother XL-3100 and when I try to sew the bobbin thread will not pick up. No thread at all is in the clothing ive just sewn. I have oiled it , rewound bobbin and changed needles. This is the first time i have used this machine (or any in last 15years) so i need help to know what im doing wrong or just haw to fix it.. Thank YOU HW
PS THE FRONT OF MACHINE SAYS ITS A BROTHER XL-3100, but this sight says this is not a valid product so i had to pick a difrent one to beable to submitte my question, again thank you..
Make sure machine is properly threaded, always put in a new needle of correct size for fabric you are sewing, and clean lint and any loose threads with brush from shuttle race and feed dog. Also, make sure you are placing needle thread and bobbin thread at least five inches in length under and behind center of the presser foot. Make sure feed dog in the UP position. I hope this helps as I have over 30 years experience and have never had to send any of my machines out for service. You can fix that machine!!! Even timing can be corrected, although that does not seem to be your particular issue. I hope this info helps.
