SOURCE: My brother sewing machine is new and I've checked

Yes. Open the bobbin and u will see a screw pressing down a metal sheet, which is actually a spring.
This is meant for adjusting the top tension. Loosen this screw by quarter or half a turn and see if it is giving the desired result. You may have to try a few settings before you arrive at the even top and bottom tensions when your thread tension adjustment scale is midway position.

Please note that you adjust the thread tension on the machine to adjust the bottom tension(not the top) .
Please let me know if this solved the problem.

If, it were me I would call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and order from them, I am sure that it runs less than $25.and you know that it is the right one for your machine. Just another thought, there are other parts sites online www.sewingpartsonline.com but you have to know the part number. Also, did you try super glue?

SOURCE: the needle of my sewing

This unit has a 2 year back to base warranty.

Try removing and replacing the needle.

Unfortunately machines with predominately plastic frames are prone to misalignment that even professionals will not bother repairing because it will re-occur quickly (I have been told).

Check that the arm is in place as it should be. and the needle is not bent.

The user guide may also provide more information, check here for replacement parts and further info.

How do I replace the bobbin hook after cleaning my Brother XL-3030?


you may be able to enlarge the manual page:

Brother XL 3030 User Manual Page 60

The hook (half-moon piece) needs to go in first, but you may need to wiggle it to seat it and then hold it while you fasten the outer retaining ring (hook race). Flip the levers up to hold the ring in place. Then install the bobbin case.

How to Clean and Maintain your Sewing Machine at Home Front Loading Bobbin

FWIW, my machine oiling instructions say to apply a drop of good quality oil on the outer edge of the hook race lip where the hook rubs as it turns. But, your manual should explain where to oil.

Reassembling the upper tension for a brother ls2350


Here is a picture of Pg.12 of the LS-2320 Manual. Also there is another pic of the parts list for the upper-dial of a Brother LS-2220. They should hopefully be similar enough to give you an idea of how to reassemble the machine.
