Question about Brother LS-2125 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Bobbin problem, maybe?

I'm relatively new at sewing machines.. that being said, I seem to be struggling with the bobbin in my machine. I can't seem to load it right so the machine sews properly. I load the bobbin in as I believe is correct (judging as best I can from the instructions) and make a few passes with it.. I open to look at the bobbin again and there is a mass of tangled string from the spool on top of my machine. What in the world am I doing wrong?

You need to increase your top tension.
Immediately after threading the machine, but before you thread the needle, with the presser foot in the up position, grab the thread at the bottom and top, and "floss" it a few times. This will ensure that the thread works its way into the tension assemblies.
Then raise your tension to about 4.5, drop the presser foot, and you should be good to go.

Singer sewing machine will not catch bobbin thread to sew

When winding a new bobbin, the bobbin itself is breaking in two. (splits in half, the top and bottom split apart). It seems logical that there is too much tension perhaps. It happens almost at the end...


There's really no way to increase the bobbin winder tension. Check to see that you have it threaded correctly for bobbin winding. There should be just a little bit of drag on the thread as you pull it over to prewound it on the bobbin.

Thread take up lever seems to have a metal clip showing that I didn't see before and the machine bounces the bobbin when it sews. HELP doesn't sew very well either.


The take up lever does have a little metal clip/spring that keeps the thread from getting out of it once it is threaded. It should just lay flat against the lever. If the bobbin is bouncing, it will be the wrong bobbin is being used or the bobbin case is damaged and vibrating. Take the thread off the machine and the bobbin out, if it sounds noisy with no bobbin then I suspect you need a new bobbin case.

The thread is not coming out of the bobbin properly


I could not find any reference material for this model.

But, Singer has examples and instructions for both a drop in bobbin and a rotary (side/front) bobbin.

Hope this helps.

If you contact the White Sewing Machine Company they may send you a new manual.

Bobbin filling


Does the winder spin freely by hand? If so then it needs to be adjusted, maybe a new bobbin tire also. If not then try oiling it and freeing it up by hand.
Hope this helps.

PLEASE GIVE ME THE PRODUCT # FOR BOBBINS FOR WHITE MACHINE MODEL # 2037. THANK YOU


Rebecca, I don't know if you ever received a solution, but after my experience with my White 2038, I would advise you to do exactly what you said. "Throw it out". I've struggled for a week with a new machine, found parts missing after opening the box and generally feel ripped off. I am throwing mine out! I purchased a Singer yesterday and it is sewing beautifully with no problems.

Good luck.
