Question about Brother LS-2125 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Open Question

It seems from other on-line comments that Brother model LS-2125i is prone to the problem I'm having. The tension knob no longer works. Adjusting the dial has no effect. Clearly, this basic of a machine will cost as much to repair as replace. The knob seems not to be layperson-accessible for replacement ... or, could it be accessed to replace? Please advise. Thanks.

SOURCE: About my needle thread tension know

If you contact you local Brother retailer and explain the problem and give your model number they ought to be able to order a replacement which you can install yourself, or, probably more prudent, ask them if they will do it and also check for any other associated "modifications" made by the little fellow.

SOURCE: NEEDLE KEEPS COMING UNTHREADED WILL NOT CATCH IN FABRIC

Most machines need to have the thread extend to the back of the machine in order not to come unthreaded.

Make sure you are threading the machine correctly and it has the proper tension. Also check the bobbin the thread has to go thru the little lash

Model LS-2125i..How do I access the bobbin


Make sure that the needle is fully up first and raise the presser foot. To access the bobbin, you need to remove the flat bed attachment that is at the front of the machine. This just rotates up and off the machine. Next rotate the shuttle cover down from the top of the cover. Now you can pull out the bobbin case towards you by the latch. This piece goes across the center of the bobbin case and to the right. Now you can remove an empty bobbin (if needed) and put the wound bobbin into the bobbin case to replace the bobbin.

For this procedure, the pictures in the manual may be clearer than the written description. See pages 14 and 15 (16 and 17 for the PDF) in the manual. Brother currently has the manual here: http://www.brother-usa.com/VirData/Content/en-US/HAD/Consumer/UsersManual/UM_LS_2125i_EN_1628.PDF . The LS-2125i support is here: http://www.brother-usa.com/support/ModelInfo.aspx?R3ModelID=LS2125i . Click on the Manuals & Documents page. Most Brother manuals and other documents can be found by searching here: http://www.brother-usa.com/Support/ .

I hope this helps.

MY BROTHER MACHINE NO. LS-2125i THREAD BREAKING WHEN SEWING?


Thread brekage can be caused by several things but start simple by taking off the needle plate then thoroughly clean the sewing mechanism and add a few drops of oil, then check the threading is correct. replace the needle. Always use quality threads and make sure that the thread is not to heavy for the size of the needle (it should pass easily through the needles eye). check that the needle hole in the plate is not bent or damaged and peppered with needle marks, a damaged plate will cause many problems. Finally, make sure that the tensions are not too tight this can be a major cause of thread breakage especially if poor quality thread is used. ( check thread by breaking it by hand, it should offer good resistance to breakage, if it breaks easily then discard it. hope this is useful, best of luck.

Appearence of loop and no zigzag stich on ls-2125i brother


The loopy stitching is usually do to threading the machine with the presser foot down.

Raise the presser foot and re-thread or pull about 8" of thread through the needle and see if the loopy stitches go away.

This may also be the issue with the zig-zag stitch.

When the machine is threaded with the presser foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter as it should for the tension to control the flow of thread to the needle. The thread then feeds too fast and the stitching is distorted.

My brother 2125I sewing machine bottom thread keeps breaking


You may be sewing too fast, using cheap thread or your tension is off. All of which can cause your bobbin thread to break.
