Make sure that the thread is threaded through the cassette properly next make sure that the needle is at its highest point. When threading the needle push down gently so its in slow motion and if everything is done correctly you will see the thread go into the needle. Its the alignment of the needle that is important. I had that problem once and it was because the needle was not sitting up at the highest point. I hope this helps. let me know if it doesn't

What must I now do to get it to make a loop. Have re-threaded 100 times

The machine timing and needle position is critical in catching the upper thread by the hook. The upper thread via the hook shuttle surrounds the bobbin making the stitch.

All machines have to achieve the same function but accomplish it through different arrangements.

the process includes the following: needle goes through fabric down adjacent to shuttle hook. needle starts up creating loop in upper thread at the point of the hook. Hook rotates and catches the loop.
Hook continues and thread circles the shuttle. Upper thread is pulled up by the thread take up.

When threading the top thread, where does it go when you get to the tension discs? There is a little metal piece. Does the thread go in front or in back of this little metal piece?

Here's a manual available for download:

If you go to page 7, you can enlarge the picture (usually holding CTRL and striking the + key several times), you may be able to see it better.

This video may also help since it appears similar to your model:

HINT: Be sure to RAISE the presser foot to the UP position before beginning to thread the upper thread. This helps the thread get seated in the tension disks.

My se270 wont thread witht he cassette i even bought a new cassette and it still wont thread help

if the needle hole is too small for the particular thread it won't thread. if the threader is missing the hole it will need to be adjusted up or down. you will need to look at your threader for a small screw that will allow it to be risen or lowered. also, if the hook on the end of the threader has been broken it will need to be released. this is usually done by pulling the old on off and simply pushing a new one on where the old one was. the other possibility is you are not pulling the thread across the area where the hook is in order for the hook to catch the thread. many of these things mentioned can be found in your users manual.

Zigzag stitch tension is too tight but tension is set to zero, any solutions?

This sounds like something is catching the top thread somewhere rather than the tension dial being the problem.

So start by check the threading up path from thread reel to needle, some thread reels have a little cut to hold the thread tail when storing but it could catch the thread during use too. If this is the case, turn reel up the other way or use a mushroom cap over it to assist the thread to flow off smoothly.

Check that thread is going through the take up lever, and not catching on a threading loop, or wrapped around something. It may be caught on something at the back of the machine that you can't see, so just visually check the whole threading path from start to finish, and hopefully this will identify the issue.

I am having trouble with breaking stitches and need a manual to find the problem

You don't say what make and model but you may find a manual on, or .

Check your top tension dial, turn it to zero and clean between the discs with a selvage edge of clean cotton offcut. Also take off the needle plate and check it for any burrs or damage around the needle hole that could be catching the thread. I assume it is the top thread that is breaking? Check the threading path from the thread spool, down to the needle visually to see if there is something damaged or catching the thread. Does the machine have an aerial arm, and if is, is it lifted up? Also, the thread spools themselves sometimes have a little nick in the edge where the thread can catch, so use a spool cap over it or turn it up the other way to ensure this is not happening.

Good machine maintenance tips, troubleshooting and threading diagrams are at

Hope this helps a little.

How to thread the singer cg590 sewing machine??

First, be sure your bobbin is in correctly, place it with the thread running counter-clockwise (the tail will be off to the left), and drop it into the bobbin case. Pull the tail toward you and make sure it catches on the silver catch closest to you by pulling to your left then away from you (toward the feed dogs). You should now feel some tension on the thread, this is good.

Be sure the presser foot us up and the wheel is turned so the needle is at it's highest point (neutral), then put a spool of thread on the spool holder (behind the machine above the motor) with the thread catch (a little notch) to the right as you put it on. Put on the thread holder (a plastic donught that holds the spool in place). The spool should not move but the thread should come off of it freely.

Bring your thread through the plastic catch on the back of the machine (near the center) by passing it underneath and pulling upward and to the rear. Pull it to the front over the top of the machine and pass it through the bottom of the small metal holder (not the round part, that is for winding the bobbin). Bring it down in front of the machine to the tensioner, passing it around the bottom of the tensioner then pulling up so that the tension is engaged. Don't worry if you don't feel tension, that's normal if your presser foot is up and needle is at the top. Pull the thread up to the top of the machine and through the receiver then down toward the needle. There is a double loop just above the needle, thread through it then thread your needle front to back.

Be sure to pull up your bobbin thread and hold both threads as you start to sew.

I cannot get the bobbin thread to catch and pull through the footer wen trying to thread the machine?

Make sure your bobbin is placed in correctly. Thread is counterclockwise as you place bobbin in the metal piece. Pull thread end through sliver in metal piece. Hold on to movable metal latch then lock the bobbin in place. Bobbin should not fall out but is able to rotate. Rotate the wheel on the furthest right of your Singer 1507 machine towards you to move the needle downward. The top thread should then be able to catch and pull up the bobbin thread.

How do you load the bobbin properly?

Hi there,

Well you may please follow the steps below -
1. Remove the bobbin from the sewing machine. Note: whether you have a drop-in, front or side-loading bobbin on your sewing machine. A drop in bobbin will load from the top, may be via a removable bobbin case cover near the machine-fed dogs. A side or front loading bobbin needs to be loaded into a removable bobbin case under the machine.
2. Choose the right size bobbin for the sewing machine.
3. Wind thread onto your bobbin. Your sewing machine should have a standard thread spool to hold the thread and a short, squat post wide enough for a bobbin.
4. Put the thread and empty bobbin into position on your sewing machine. Wrap the thread around the bobbin to start it. On most machines, disengage the needle by turning the smaller hand-wheel on the machine toward you. Push the bobbin post into position, securing the bobbin into place. Press gently down. Thread should begin to wind neatly onto your bobbin.
5. Break the thread, push the bobbin post back into an inactive position and remove the bobbin. Tighten the hand-wheel. Thread your sewing machine again if necessary before loading the bobbin.
6. Remove the bobbin case cover and put the bobbin into position. The thread should slide through a catch on the bobbin case and up through the cover.
7. Access the bobbin case for a front or side mount bobbin. Lift the catch and remove the removable bobbin holder. Put the bobbin into the holder and run the thread through the holder, bringing it to the front. Lift the catch and slide the bobbin holder back into the case. Hold your needle thread gently forward with your left hand and turn the hand-wheel. The needle thread will pass down into the machine and catch a loop of the bobbin thread. Pull this loop up and slide both threads to the back before beginning to sew.
Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Brother SE 270D Cassette threader

I too have a christmas gift causing headaches - loopy embroidery. But at least this one I found a work around for... I thread the cassette according to the arrows but when I get to "6" I loop up around the left side and over the top of the bend but DON'T go far enough to cut the thread. I leave about 4 or 5 inches loose and hold the end at the top-right of the thread cassette at about the 2 o'clock position. I push the cassette down into the machine normally and right about when the 6 is below the window the thread will cut leaving you holding the left over piece. Continue pushing down until click and needle will thread. Have not had any threading problems since learning to leave a tail on the thread. Hope this helps.
