SOURCE: bobbin case on brother sewing machine

Well, from the picture I see that your bobbin is a front load as opposed to a top load.. if you tilt the front panel down, you will see where the bobbin and casing goes. Put the bobbin in the casing with the thread pulling from the right hand side of the casing making sure the thread in guided into the small **** on the top edge of the casing.. On the back of the casing the will be a small tab. Pull that away from the casing and enter the casing in to the opening for the bobbin. It should snap into place when you release the little tab.

Sounds like either the bobbin case tension is too light or is not in the tension at all.

Consult your manual for how to place the thread in the tension and retry. Increase the bobbin case tension if necessary.

The top tension may be set too high.

SOURCE: Can I have a FULL tutorial video on how to thread

I do not think that they make a video for your model. You can download a copy of your manual for free, at and then you can enlarge the diagrams. Save it on your computer then you always have a copy. You can also print it out. Your machine is very basic and you will be a pro in no time. Just take your time, relax and be patient with yourself.

Brother LS-2125i is 'freezing' up.

Personally it sounds like it could be a costly repair.A new Brother LS-2125i can be purchased online for about $80.00. Most sewing machine repair places charge upwards of $60.00 for a tune-up. So it's your call? Good Luck

The handwheel is extremely hard to turn. it will turn using the foot pedal but it makes a whining noise. could it be the belt?

Look on the back of the machine there is usually a tension dial. Try adjusting that. I f that does't work your manual lists instructions for cleaning and oiling a little bit of oil in the right place works wonders or on the oher hand a little thread in the wrong place will stop an electric motor.

Oil machine

It should be just these three places!
Make sure your machine is lint-free before you oil, and don't use more than just a drop on each place!

Disassemble your bobbin case....


You have to unscrew the top....


And pay NO attention to my leg!

Happy sewing!

Bobbin holder keeps catchin thread

Try re-threading, make sure the presser lifer is up so the tension discs are open and the thread will go into them. It sounds like you may have missed either the upper tension discs or the take up lever.

A drop of oil on the hook wouldn't hurt if you haven't oiled in awhile.

good luck!
