How To Thread Bobbin on Brother LS 2125 Sewing Machine

How To Thread Bobbin on Brother LS 2125 Sewing Machine


Hi there. It’s Mikey from Mikeyss Mail, and I bought a sewing machine from Walmart. It’s the Brother LS 2125 and It has a front-loading system for your bobbin underneath And it took me two hours to actually figure out what I was doing wrong. Went online, the videos suck. So, this is what’s happened, is that when I got this machine, I decided to take everything off the bottom so everything fell out. And this was my problem is that I shouldn’t have done that. I should have only taken the bobbin out. So it took me forever to figure out how to get these all back into position. Because the the Bobbin situation was off. So basically what I did is I took all three rings out, just like so and I took the Bobbin case out. I want my bobbin on the top. So what’s happened, is if you pull it all the way out, see this U-Shape right in there? Hopefully you can see that. You want to make sure that this piece here, goes in the opposite side of that when you go to put it back in. And you should have never had to take that out in the first place. I was just, haven’t had a sewing machine in a long time. So basically it’s just going to sit in there, just like so. It’s going to fall out if you go to operate your machine, so this ring here holds that into position. And there’s a notch at the bottom of it. So you just want to match the notch that is on the bottom Holding, holding it in like so, and then these two side pieces hold it together. So don’t pull that out You don’t need to. So in order to get this string up through the actual piece here, all we need to do is just stick this in. This notch here this is what I couldn’t figure, this notch that’s coming out here matches to the notch that’s in that ring right there. So what we want to do is we want to put that back on matching that notch to the top piece here. So in order to get this string, all we need to do, is you got to string this up first. So you got to go through the top and string it all, or thread it all. So basically, just using your hand this is going to come down and it’s just going to pick up the string, just like so. So using some of the tools that they’ve given you, given you a screwdriver or thing, the bottom thread has just come out. So two hours later. I finally figured it out. It’s a very very simple thing. It’s just the wrong camera angles on YouTube. Thank you very much.

  1. THANK YOU!!
    Bought it used & couldn't figure out why the bobbin was so complicated!
    I'm guessing the previous owners couldn't figure it out & that's why they sold it so cheap.  Score!

  2. Thank you so much.  Mine did not come with a manual and I too had not sewn in a while so did the same thing you did.  This was the most helpful video I have see thus far.  Very well done.

  3. Thank you thank you!! I am trying to teach myself to sew and this made it very frustrating and I was starting to wonder if I was taking on a task not meant to be for me because I couldnt even get the darn thing threaded! I did the same thing you did and spent 2 days trying to figure it out. This made it a piece of cake! You are the best!!!

  4. Manual that came with it it was awful, gave very little and over complicated, I'm still having an issue with getting it to actually pick up the thread though. 

  5. I was literally CRYING of frustration trying to do this! The manual didn't help 🙁 I took everything out as well thank you sooooooo much!

  6. Great Tutorial Mickey!  Easy to follow and understand without too much waffling! Perfect! Thank you! Well done.

  7. Useless instructions. Doesnt tell u how to thread the bobbin. And was this video filmed with a calculator?

  8. Thank you soooooo much for posting this!!
    I always thought I had to take everything out to re-do a bobbin, and it always takes me forever to put it all back, especially if I haven't used the machine in a while! 
    I "borrowed" this machine from my sister, so I never had any instructions.
    You're a life saver! =)

  9. didnt have a manual and the company site kept asking for money….and my mother was no help to me especially since it was the first i was using a sewing machine!!!

  10. THANK YOU so much for this video.  The exact same thing happened to me, and I'd like to have never found how to fit these two pieces back in. Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Now I can actually do some sewing instead of looking at these two metal things sitting on my hutch, and a useless machine sitting in the closet.

  11. You are definitely heaven sent. Like you i took out everything and could not figure out how to keep the second ring in place till I watched your video. Thank you for the  video which was of immense help..

  12. Thanks. I made the same mistake. Even though the machine I was using is a different model, the bobbin mechanism is the same. Your video was well shot and very clear and concise! Thanks for saving me a lot of time and frustration!  

  13. I did the same thing – took too much out and it drove me nuts because the bobbin thread wouldn't pick up. 

  14. Lifesaver! Hadn't used mine in a long while and was nearly ready to heave it out the window. Forever grateful. Thanks so much!

  15. I just picked up this sewing machine used for free, but the bobbin and the ring pieces that hold it in place are missing. I've found where to purchase the bobbin online, but I have no idea what the other pieces are called or what to search for. Any ideas? =D

  16. what if the u shaped thing for bottom thread is not spinning? has this ever happened to anyone. making it so the threads don't catch.

  17. You're my hero! Thank you so much…I've been struggling for over an hour before I realized I might be able to find a YouTube video. I found yours and you made it so simple!!! Thank you to the moon and back. 🙂

  18. Thank you so much  mine all fell out too x far too long trying to push it back in till l found your most excellent demonstration …

  19. Thank you so much!!!! I did the same thing….so discouraging 🙂 but happy I wasn't alone and there was help from you!

  20. I have this sewing machine and going to be starting quilting. I need to use a walking foot and was wondering if you know if there is a walking foot available for this machine and if so which one?? 

  21. Thank you so much for this tutorial. I have the same sewing machine and mine fell out too. Thanks to you I did not spend hours getting it back together and threaded.

  23. This was super informative and fast. I got mine working properly in under a minute after I watched your video. Thank you!

  24. Thank you very much … Just a simple question which has nothing to do with this video, would you happen to know what kind of a sewing machine I would need to sew multiple layers of fabric? I like to make bags, purse etc and when I try to do that with my normal sewing machines the thread is torn and it gives me a hard time !

  25. Ive had this machine for almost 10 years and only used it for a year (Back in 2007) and haven't touched it since. Now i want to get back in to Sewing and this video was great and thanks you for refreshing my memory.Now on to making My Project … (Nursery set for my soon to be little man)

  26. I did the Same thing you did ….and It took forever to get those parts back in….Iam new to sewing….so Iam checking-out your video. I am not alone…….Heres a Big Thanks to you for all your help with model.

  27. Oh my gosh! Thank You soooooo much! This was exactly the problem I was having. You saved an 8-year old's day!

  28. Thank you so much…took it out and have spent so long trying
    to get it back. But with your help 10 seconds…..yay!!!

  29. It looks as WE are NOT the only ones who made the same mistake as you, LOL! Thanks soooo much for posting this video it was very helpful! 🙂

  30. I wanted to make an apron from a kit to wear when I'll be baking for my sixteenth birthday on the second of April, but the bobbin kept falling out. This really helped, thanks!
    I couldn't understand how to thread the needle, though, which I'm a bit embarrassed about since you explained it so easily.

  31. The instruction book tells you guy! How to take it a part to clean in there at some point in time & put back together.

  32. i just scored a vintage brother 651 machine in excellent condition, but there was zero thread in it, so ive been fighting to figure out how to reload it. but like you said, nobody had anything concerning the bobbin install. interestingly enough, the bobbin design has changed almost zero over the last 50 years, because this 60s model 651 went together VERY similar to your machine. major kudos, this helped me a ton

  33. You are my hero it's been years since I have used my machine and forgot how to do this so thank you 🙇‍♀️🙏😁👍

  34. Haha 😂😂😂😂 I feel your pain….worked two hours and got the manual out. I found this tutorial. Thank you!!! 👍

  35. Ha, I did this exact same Thing! The rest is easy, as long as you don't dismantle it first like this 🙂 Thanks a million.

  36. Stupid!
    Every front loaded sewing machine has the same bobbin structure for years, that's why the instruction manual does not show you how to put it back when you accidentally take it out. It's just common sense.

  37. Oh, boy!! !!! You and me together sewing something would be REALLY fun!! lol At least I'd have you to figure things out!!! The manual does me NO good anyways…I need to SEE what I am (trying)to do. SO thank you so much! 🙂

  38. thanks you for this video! I took a class over the summer and I totally forgot everything I learned. I laughed so hard when you said "two hours later… "

  39. I've just bought this machine, no instruction inside, I've made the same mistake as you!!! Thank you so much for your video!

  40. Thank you so much for this video. I bought this machine used for $10 and the previous owner had taken the bobbin casing, etc. all apart. This enabled me to get it back together so I could use the machine!
