Question about Brother Sewing Machines
It is more than likely your top threading, insert a new needle (flat side facing away) because it could have a burr or a slight bend in it. Now totally rethread your machine, with the presser foot up, then pull on the top thread, it should move smoothly, put the presser foot down, pull the thread, it should barely move. This procedure should seat the thread in the tension discs. If, this does not solve your problem, return the machine and get a new one. Good luck.
