    I have a Brother LS-1217 sewing machine that was abandoned by a renter. I do not have a manual with it. I need to know how to fill a bobbin and I would like to have a manual for the machine.

How to thread a baby lock 2400

Threading the Baby Lock BL2400 sewing machine can be done by following these steps:
1. Raise the presser foot: Lift the presser foot lever to raise the presser foot.
2. Thread the upper thread: Take the thread spool and place it on the spool pin at the top of the machine. Follow the numbered threading path indicated on the machine or in the instruction manual. Typically, the thread will go through a series of thread guides, tension discs, and the take-up lever. Make sure the thread is properly seated in each guide and tension disc.
3. Thread the needle: Thread the thread through the needle from front to back. You can use the automatic needle threader if your machine is equipped with one, or manually thread the needle by holding the thread with one hand and passing it through the needle eye.
4. Load the bobbin: Wind a bobbin with the desired thread and place it on the bobbin winder spindle on top of the machine. Follow the specific instructions for your machine model to wind the bobbin correctly. Once the bobbin is wound, place it in the bobbin case and thread the thread through the appropriate guides or tension mechanism, ensuring the thread is properly engaged in the bobbin tension spring.
5. Insert the bobbin: Insert the bobbin case into the machine's bobbin compartment, making sure it is securely in place. Follow the threading path indicated on the machine or in the manual to ensure the bobbin thread is correctly threaded.
6. Bring up the bobbin thread: Hold onto the top thread with your left hand and turn the handwheel toward you with your right hand to lower and raise the needle. As the needle rises, a loop of the bobbin thread will appear above the needle plate. Gently pull the top thread to bring the bobbin thread loop up through the needle plate.
7. Pull both threads to the back: Hold both the top thread and bobbin thread together and gently pull them toward the back of the machine, ensuring they are out of the way of the needle.
8. Perform a test stitch: Once you have threaded the machine, insert a fabric scrap under the presser foot and lower the presser foot lever. Select a straight stitch or another desired stitch on the machine and slowly begin sewing to test the stitching.
Remember to consult your Baby Lock BL2400 instruction manual for specific instructions and diagrams related to threading and operating your particular machine. It will provide you with detailed guidance tailored to your machine's features and functionalities.

I have Bernia 180. The bottom thread is puckering. Top thread is perfect. I cannot find help in manual. Please help

Check that the bobbin is inserted turning the proper direction in the bobbin case and that the thread is threaded correctly through the tension control on the bobbin case.

Make sure the upper thread is threaded correctly. The factory standard upper tension setting is midway between high & lower number although this may need to be tweaked for your particular machine.

If the machine is still pulling the bobbin thread too tight, you can try tightening the upper thread tension. If it still isn't resolved, you may need to loosen the bobbin tension.

You might also want to check the presser foot pressure on your machine. That generally needs adjustment when changing from thicker to thinner fabric and vice versa.

Bobbin not functioning in my sewing machine.

Consult your owner's manual. It sounds like possibly you don't have the bobbin threaded in the bobbincase properly. The bobbin must spin (either clockwise or counterclockwise per the manual) a certain direction and the thread needs to be threaded in the bobbincase in order for the bobbin to turn.

My Diana 560 doesn't make a stitch, I've checked the needle, the proper Threading, the lint that might have Collected in the well, it runs well, But not a single sticth.

Consult your manual to confirm you have threaded the upper thread and bobbin thread properly. Is the needle installed with the flat side facing the right direction? Did you remember to RAISE the presser foot before threading the upper thread? Are you pulling at least 4-6" of thread through the needle's eye and through the bobbincase before you begin to sew? Once the machine is threaded (top and bobbin), can you manually rotate the handwheel one complete turn and pull the bobbin thread to the top? Like this: How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

If the bobbin thread does not come up, then your machine probably needs service.

Here are some other suggestions:
