I can't sew without breaking the thread from the spool

1.I can't tell from the picture whether you have a spool holder on top of your machine. If you have an upright post, you need to make sure that the spool spins freely and isn't getting caught on the top or bottom of the spool.
2.If there is a bad spot on the tip of your needle it can break the thread.
3.Also since this is an older machine, there may be small nick in the wire from the tension. You can buy a new wire for it or take a small piece of sandpaper and smooth it out.
4.The most common problem is that you or someone else has broken a needle and that the small hole in the cover plate, where the needle goes down to pick up the bobbin thread, has nicks all around it and is catching the thread and tearing it. Take your plate off your machine and go to the hardware store (or online) and buy some emery chord. Thread the cord through the hole and run it back and forth until the nicks are smooth.

how do you adjust the bobbin


Set the tension on the sewing machine for the weight of the material you want to sew. The tension setting shows in the stitch on the material. Use the chart on the machine that matches types of stitches with suggested material tensions. An example of this is, the stitch to sew jean material is different than the stitch to sew silk.

Take the bobbin and wind the thread around it. Make sure the bobbin is empty and don't fill it too full of thread. A bobbin filled too full won't stay tightly spun.

Thread the string evenly on the bobbin. Move the thread back and forth evenly and in layers that are level. Many Singer sewing machines have a bobbin winder on the top of the sewing machine, and the consistency of how it threads can save you frustration later.

Find the hole on the bobbin that is located near the inside spindle of the bobbin. Take the thread sitting on the sewing machines spool and insert the thread in the hole from inside the bobbin to the outside. Set the threaded bobbin on the spool designated for spinning on the top of the sewing machine for some Singers.

Turn the side drive wheel slowly until the threaded bobbin has a layer or two of thread on it. Push down on the drive peddle and fill the bobbin, but don't thread it to the very edge. If the bobbin is too full the thread will release erratically. Cut the thread from the spool.

Drop the bobbin into the bobbin case under the area where the needle sews the material. Close the case and turn by hand the side wheel drive until the bobbin threads into the sewing machine. You can tell when the bobbin is threaded by the tiny piece of thread that juts out of the bobbin case where the needle goes up and down.

Grab the thread with your fingers and pull it out approximately 4 inches. Your bobbin is now spun and threaded.

Poulan PPB200. There are two gas lines inside the tank. They have deteriorated and need to be replaced. One of them is supposed to have a fuel filter. The other one, I don't know. I'm also not sure which is which, as the fuel filter has fallen off. The parts explosions on repair part websites do not show the inside of the fuel tank. Can you help?

The small one has the fuel filter. The other one is the return line to the tank. The return line is larger and usually have a fitting at the end of the hose and is inside the tank. Thread the new line ( large hose ) Through the hole on the right side. Thread until you can pull it out the filler hole. Install the fitting on the hose and pull it back up until the fitting hits the roof of the fuel tank (on inside of tank ) then that hose goes to the short fitting on the primer bulb. Then thread the small hose through the left hole going into the tank and pull it out the filler hole until you can install the fuel filter. Install fuel filter and pull it back until the filter rests on the edge of the filler hole. That hose goes to the right side of the carburetor. This is if you have a walbro carb. Zama also uses the right side for this hose. Hope my explanation helps. I'm working on one as well.
