Question about Brother Sewing Machines

Open Question

I have a brother industrial sewing machine model DB2-B797 with a walking foot. I am unable to bring up the bobbin thread after a needle broke. I have replaced the needle correctly and threaded it correctly, but when i checked the bobbin case a small metal piece fell out it used to be attatched to the inside of the case under the latch, could this be the problem, it has snapped off from the screw. Any ideas please other than a new bobbin case as i need to finish sewing today.

SOURCE: Thread won't catch bobbin

I hope to God nobody else pays more for a repair than the machine is worth.

It's ridiculous to spend $300 for that repair since the machine is available almost everywhere for way under $200. You could have thrown that one in the trash and bought a new one cheaper than the repair!!
I paid $129 for mine, had the same problem with two, yes, two of them, and sent them back and was sent another which so far is working fine. There seems to be a flaw in the engineering of that machine since so many people are experiencing the same problem. The machines DO have a warranty so please, please, be careful of unscrupulous repair people. Oh, I'm sorry but I need to mention that I bought my machine from eBay and it was a refurbished machine sold by Ken Sewing and Vacumm in Muscle Shoals, Al. They stand behind their products and were very nice to deal with, they even paid for the return shipping on the two that I returned. Hope this helps y'all.

SOURCE: My DB2-B797 suddenly has needle breaking because

Hi
First thing to check is are you using the correct needle, if it is too long this will hit the bobbin holder.
If the needle is the correct one, for some reason your timing is out or the needle bar has dropped lower than it should be.
I can't explain on here how to re-time as it is complicated.
If the timing is out it is very unusual as the working parts are locked in position.
Take out the thread, remove the needle plate and turn the machine over by hand watching the needle and see if it is actually hitting the bobbin or bobbin holder.

I have juki 1541 industrial machine needle want pick up bobbin thread??


Is your needle inserted correctly? Try taking it out and inserting again. Is your bobbing threaded correctly? Try taking it out and re-threading. You might also try cleaning the bobbin area. The only other think I can think of is that you may have the wrong needle in.

The top thread breaks
1. the needle thread is not threaded properly
2. The needle thread tension is to tight
3. The needle is bent or blunt
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted
5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew
6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing
7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle
8. Try a different spool or cone of thread

I am trying to adjust the timing on the feed components on a brother single needle walking foot sewing machine it wrinkles the bottom layer when it,s sewes


So let me translate that to make sure I (and others) understand your gibberish.

You have an industrial Brother with a walking foot. When sewing the bottom material is puckered and you want to know how to adjust the feed.

First, puckering on the bottom is often a tension problem. So double check the threading and bobbin. Make sure the bobbin is unwinding in the correct direction. ALWAYS START WITH THE SIMPLEST SOLUTION FIRST THEN MOVE ON TO THE NEXT SUGGESTION.

here is a link to an industrial trouble shooting guide that will help you identify the cause of the puckering.

In the mean time can you please give us the Model number of your Brother?

I have problems with not be able to pick up the thread from the bobbin to start sewing


Make sure the needle is not bent and is installed with the flat side of the needle shaft to the back of the machine.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up, with the thread going into the needle from the front ,

Check the manual to be sure you have the bobbin inserted correctly into the bobbin case and the thread is feeding in the proper direction and through the guides on the bobbin case.

Hold onto the end of the top thread at the needle and hand walk the needle down and back up. This should bring the bobbin thread up. Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Place a folded scrap of fabric under the presser foot, lower the presser foot and hand walk the needle down into the fabric and then use the power pedal to start sewing.

Industrial sewing machine top thread breaking


The brother DB 2 series of machines do not use a needle with a flat side. the needle system is DBX1 and are available from size 10 to size 20.
Try using the right needle for the machine and the right size for the thread you are using. this should make it better
