Seeing machines do not have oil pumps or hoses. When a machine is oiled the moving parts are simply lubricated. If the machine is leaving oil on your fabric it’s simply falling off of the moving parts and should stop eventually.

At some point, the machine has probably been over-oiled--perhaps not by you. If the oil is coming from the needle bar or presser foot bar, you can try cleaning those bars with a clean cloth to remove any excess oil. (Drop the presser foot and the needle so you can wipe as high as possible.)

If it continues to be an issue, you may need to have your machine cleaned.

I have a Brother PE770. It is running just fine, but leaving little brown (looks like oil) spot on top of the fabric. They wash out easily enough, but how do I fix this?


You need to figure out exactly what is causing the brown spots. If it is, in fact, old oil, you may want to moisten a soft piece of fabric with rubbing alcohol and clean the presser foot bar and needle bar as the oil could be running down and staining the fabric.

My machine keeps breaking needles, I have embroidery unit on it,how do I fix this


1. IS THE NEEDLE THE RIGHT SIZE FOR THE MATERIAL?
2. IS THE HOOP BIG ENOUGH FOR THE JOB? IF IT GOES OVER THE EDGE THE NEEDLES WILL BREAK.
3 IS IT SEWING AT ALL? ARE YOU HAVING PROBLEMS WITH GOOD STITCHES OR NONE AT ALL.? THIS WILL NEED YOUR REPAIRMAN TO TIME YOUR MACHINE.
4. FOR A TEST ON TIMING: REGULAR SEWING WITH STRAIGHT STITCH. 1. PLACE NEEDLE ALL THE WAY TO LEFT AND TRY SEWING. 2. PLACE NEEDLE ALL THE WAY TO RIGHT AND TRY SEWING.
WAS THERE ANY NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE? IF THERE WAS THAT TELLS YOU TO GET IT TIMED.

Problem with Brother Quattro


This is an Embroidery machine. Use a thicker thread if only sewing. If doing embroidery, check your hoop for proper size, and make it tight holding the material.

Make sure you're using the correct foot for the stitch. Is this during sewing or embroidery? Take off the bobbin plate using the screwdriver and remove the bobbin. Make sure everything is clean under and around the shuttle. If you've ever broken a needle the tip might have fallen down into the mechanism and occasionally be jamming it.
