How do I get my brother sewing machine to pick up the bobbin thread?
With your right hand, turn the balance wheel toward you (counterclockwise) until the needle moves down and back up again to its highest position. The upper thread should have caught the lower thread in a loop. Pull the upper thread toward you and the lower thread will come up from the bobbin in a large loop.
Why is my bobbin threader not working?
Check if you aligned the groove in the bobbin with the spring on the bobbin winder shaft and pressed down on the bobbin until it snapped into place. Check if the thread is passed through the bobbin winding guide correctly. Check if there are scratches or other defects on the bobbin. Replace the bobbin if in doubt.
Why is my thread bunching underneath?
A: Looping on the underside, or back of the fabric, means the top tension is too loose compared to the bobbin tension, so the bobbin thread is pulling too much top thread underneath. By tightening the top tension, the loops will stop, but the added tension may cause breakage, especially with sensitive threads.
What is the correct tension for a Brother sewing machine?
The normal tension setting is 4.0. The upper thread and the bobbin thread should cross near the center of the fabric. Only the upper thread should be visible from the right side of the fabric, and the bobbin thread should be visible from the wrong side of the fabric.
