Question about Brother CS6000i Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

My Brother sewing machine XL-4040 appears to be stuck on ZigZag. I have pushed and pulled every conceivable button or knob but cannot find out where or how to change to straight stitch. I have no manual so am looking for a picture of what the stitch selector looks like and how to change it from ZigZag to straight. Please help me. Thanks.

I have a Brother sewing machine,model XL 6562, unsure of age, it's older. Today it only sews in reverse, cannot make it go forward. Help!!


well reverse button must be stuck. Try turning wheel to move forward and setting the stitch, like to zigzag. Oil it good, old machines get "thirsty".

Does my Brother SQ9185 sew backwards other than the push button backstitch?


Use the reverse button. That's what it is for. Sew forward and then push the button and sew in reverse.

If you have a darning foot, you can use it (drop the feed dogs) and then you manually move the fabric around while stitching.

Appearence of loop and no zigzag stich on ls-2125i brother


The loopy stitching is usually do to threading the machine with the presser foot down.

Raise the presser foot and re-thread or pull about 8" of thread through the needle and see if the loopy stitches go away.

This may also be the issue with the zig-zag stitch.

When the machine is threaded with the presser foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter as it should for the tension to control the flow of thread to the needle. The thread then feeds too fast and the stitching is distorted.

My four-year-old XL3500 seems to have a tension problem. It was sewing fine until after I refilled the bobbin, changed thread twice, and did some zigzag stitching. Now the top stitch is not correct; it...


according to the diagram in the manual, the upper thread tension is set by the wheel/knob on top and just to the right of the thread take up lever and thread guide. If you don't have a manual, go to www.brother-usa.com they have a downloadable manual for your machine.
