I'm having a problem threading my brother sewing machine model XL 3010


1. Clean up any loose thread in the bobbin area.
2. Pull on the bobbin thread while it is out. It should give a tension that is equal to the top tension of three. You'll have to approximate. Adjust the screw tension on the bobbin. It is the screw nearest to the thread exit hole on the side.
3. Put it back in.
4. Now, the top tension should be at about three. If it still allows a little wad on the bottom of the fabric you can adjust the top tension by tightening a small amount and monitor each time you adjust. The wad should go away.

The top and bottom threads won't connect, to make a stitch.


Replace the needle with a brand new "Schmetz" needle..

If it still won't pick up the bottom thread, take it in for service.

My top thread isn't picking up the bottom thread, and my needle is inserted right and not bent, i dont know what else it could be?


if you are sure needle is right then the timing could be off, sequence between needle going down and hook rotating around tocatch the needle thread. usually a tech repair.

My needle holder will not hold the needle in tightly what could be causing this problem?


The threads of the screw that holds the needle clamp could be stripped or worn.

The needle clamp can be replaced. You can get this from a sewing machine dealer who does the repairs or, order from the Internet.

Stretching a piece of Teflon tape (a plumbing product and not expensive) around the threads of the screw can provide a short-term fix.

Sewing machine tension?


Hi! This might be a tension issue, but it also could be caused by the needle. For stretchy fabric you need to use a stretch needle or at the least, a ballpoint needle. (see my tip about which needle to use).


Let me know if this solves the problem, ok?


Happy Sewing!
