Question about Brother Sewing Machines

1 Answer

My Brother 35th Anniversary sewing machine squeaks and I have oiled it everywhere I can think of. I am also only allowed now to stitch a few stitches and it locks up. Is there a problem with the foot? Also could it be something wrong with the wheel on the right side? How do I rid it of squeaking?

CAn a brother lock 9290 sewing machine do just a straight stitch?


YES. ALL SEWING MACHINES DO STRAIGHT STITCH. EVEN IF YOU WOULD SET THE STITCH SELECTOR TO A ZIGZAG YOU COULD STILL SEW STRAIGHT STITCH BY SETTING THE WIDTH TO ZERO. OTHERWISE YOU COULD JUST USE THE STRAIGHT STITCH CHOICE.

Looking to tune up brother CP 6500. Squeaking And skipping occasional stitches. What grease to use and where to apply grease?


No grease please, only quality sewing machine oil. Some machines marked the oil positions with red. Small holes. Else take the top and left side covers of and use just a drop of oil where moving parts are joint. Here too you should find small holes that need a drop now and then.

What setting do i use for working with silk on a brother xr52 don't have manual


You can download the manual for your machine from the Brother site, link is

There are lots of weights of silk fabric but I'll assume you are working with something soft and silky like a silk charmeusse or silk georgette.

You need to stitch seams with a straight stitch and use a new sharp needle size 70 or even 60. Change the needle every 4-6 sewing hours or if you hear squeaking or popping; throw away the blunt one.

Use a quality polyester thread like Guttermann, Mettler, or Metryosene. Start with stitch length on 2.5 and stitch width zero (straight stitch). The normal metal presser foot is probably best for this. If the fabric is see through you may wish to do french seams to encase the raw edges. This is where you sew wrong sides together, then turn and stitch right sides together, if you have never done this instructions are here http://sewing.about.com/od/techniques/ss/frenchseam.htm.

Also pay carefull attention to your bobbin winding, my tip for this is here
http://www.fixya.com/support/r10598580-winding_bobbin_correctly
as winding the bobbin smoothly and evenly is essential to quality stitched seams.

Always press every seam as you sew, dry iron, silk setting. Press each side of the seam, then press the seam allowances open, this sets the stitches into the fabric.

If you find that the seam is pulling up you can try loosing off the top tension by a half number (turn it down to loosen) and shorten up the stitch length a fraction to 2.2 or so. But you don't want it too small as if you need to "unsew" ie unpick, you'll never see the thread.

Use a lighweight interfacing if the pattern requires it; I'd use a fusible but very lightweight such as Pellon Featherweight.

Happy sewing.

There is a loud squeaky noise when machine quilting a meandering stitch with a darning foot. The feed dogs are down, stitch width is 0, length stitch is 2.5. The machine does not squeak when using regular...


Is the darning foot aftermarket or genuine darning foot for your particular model...If it is aftermarket, it may not be the correct length. What is you model?

I own a Brother Innovis 1500D machine and I wonder if this machine can do the blanket stitch?


On most brother machines there is a feature called my custom stitch. You can create any stitch there and save in a memory pocket for later use. I dont think the machine has a blanket stitch so its the only solution.

Brother ls2125 won't zigzag stitch


that sounds like a timing issue if it will pick up every now and then i would recommend taking it to a brother dealer for repair as timing is not easy to set
