I need a little more detail, was it working ok and feeding the fabric through, then stopped moving? How is your top tension? Set at 3 or 4? No thread caught in the bobbin area? What is your stitch length? What kind of fabric, and what size needle? See, there a lot of things that I need to know in order to help you, Please give as much detail as you can when stating your problem, don't forget, we can't see what you are doing,

Brother LS-2125 bunches bobbin thread then won't sew.


Check your stitch sample. Dollars to donuts it's the top thread bird nesting (also called thread nesting) under the fabric. Issues appearing under the fabric is usually top thread related. Problems appearing on the top of the fabric is usually bobbin thread related.

Remove the top thread from your machine.
Be sure to start with a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top.

Why is my Brother SQ9185 Sewing Machine thread bunching up on the back side of the fabric?


That is called thread nesting or bird nesting. Usually it is because it is threaded incorrectly (sometimes the thread jumps out of a thread guide or the take-up lever), the upper thread is not seated in the tension disk, or the upper tension is incorrect.

First thing, install a brand new needle.
Second, remove the upper thread, RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--make sure the correct thread path is followed.
Third, check that the upper tension is set at the midway point between high & low number.

Test. Adjust the upper tension as needed. Re-test. Tension is correct when the upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

My machine needs the tension adjusted, i believe...because while i am sewing the thread bunches underneath the fabric that i am sewing. help? *my needle is sharp *my thread is new


You have not got is threaded on top right. Do this test, rethread your machine with the presser foot up, pull thread, it should move smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull thread, it should barely move. This seats the thread in the tension discs. See if that works.

HOW TO THREAD THE BOBBIN


Take the thread-end from the thread spool to the left, around the bottom of the "silver" "button"; across the top of the button and back to the right to the bobbin winder.

Run the thread-end through a hole in the side of the bobbin spool, hold onto the thread (pull through about 5" of thread) and place the bobbin spool onto the the bobbin winding pin.

You may have to turn a bit to the left or right to get the spool in place. Push the bobbin spool to the right; against the bobbin winding wheel.

Press on the power pedal - keeping hold of the thread-end.

As the bobbin fills, the thead end will twist.

When you can not longer hold on. Stop the machine and clip the thread end then continue to wind the bobbin.

Hi, my thread gets caught and pulls the materal into the foot and i can not sew due to the jamming and the thread get all bunched up by the bobbin


I had similar problems when I first started sewing. Try adjusting the tension in your thread - less tension for lighter fabrics, more tension for heavier fabrics. This will stop the needle from pulling the threads in the fabric.

As for the thread getting bunched up in the bobbin - this is most likely because your bobbin is the wrong size for the machine, or that you did not thread the bobbin properly. Try re-threading, this time making sure you pull the thread into the bobbin container tightly. This should stop the bobbin from jumping around the container and spitting thread.

Brother XL2230 Elastic Overlock function not working properly


First of all check your needle size and utility, for the tension machine it must be the same on top and bottom example pull the top thread and the lower thread they must be the same.
When sticthing the elastic you must devide the amount of elastic versus the fabric : dise the amount before stiching
Hope this will help
Good day

My xl-5700 the needle keeps breaking or the thread keeps getting all bunched up plus I lost my instruction manual can I gat a new one


About the needle problem, Brother's FAQ gives the following response: 

Make sure the needle is correctly inserted with the flat side facing the back and pushed up into the machine as far as possible.

The needle could have been damaged or bent. If so replace with a new one.

Make sure the fabric is not pulled excessively when sewing. Let the feed dogs move the fabric. Do not pull the fabric.

The combination of needle size, thread size and fabric is incorrect. 
Be sure to use the correct needle and thread size for the fabric you are sewing.(example: Denim-size 16 needle and 40-50 heavy duty thread).

As for the manual, here's the link:
