Problem with singer 590c. Thread bunches up & breaks or the bobbin thread wont sew. 1 time happened to get everything right & it sewed beautifully.Today I cant get it to pick up the bobbin thread.


Make sure to use a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading.
Unthread and re-thread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Set the upper tension to midway between High & Low numbers.
Verify the bobbin is loaded and threaded correctly in the bobbin case.
Begin sewing slowly and check the result. The upper tension can be tweaked so the upper & bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

If it is still not working properly, the machine may be out of time and require service.

I have a Quantum CXL Singer sewing machine and the thread keeps breaking. It will make about 3 stitches and breaks. It is breaking in the same place.


Make sure the thread coming off the spool is not wrapping around the spool spindle. Install a brand new needle. Remove ALL the thread from the machine. Clean bobbin area of any dust, lint, threads. Set upper tension to the midpoint. RAISE the presser foot and then totally re-thread the machine from beginning to end verifying the sequence is correct. Test.

My thread keeps coming out of the needle. I tried changing the needle, even tried changing the type of material. LOL


Did you try adjusting the tension? sometimes that pulls on the thread and causes it to unthread. Is your bobbin thread the same type as the top thread? Two different thread types will cause problems. Also, some of the cheaper thread they sell at JoAnn's and other stores are not supposed to be used on machines, only hand sewing. Is your thread specifically made for machine sewing?

SERGER HAS BEEN RETHREADED AND HAS A NEW NEEDLE BUT WILL ONLY SERGE FOR ABOUT 1.5 " and THE THREAD BREAKS AND LOWER LOOPER COMES UNTHREADED.


Serger thread breaks

1. Is the serger threaded correctly?

2. Is the needles inserted correctly?

3. Is one of the needles bent or damaged?

4. Is the tension adjusted too tightly?

5. Is the tension adjusted to accommodate thickness of thread being used?

6. Are you using inferior quality thread?

7. Is the thread feeding off the cone/spool freely?

8. Is the needle size correct for the type of fabric being used?

9. Are the needles being used the correct one for the serger?

10. If all of the above suggestions don't help then the serger needs to be checked for a timing problem at a sewing machine repair shop.

My needle keeps coming unthreaded when sewing


normally when you use longer thread tails of 4 to 6 inches and move
the thread tails behind the needle before starting to sew.

The top needle unthreads after just a few stiches. I have a Singer 2950 and am new to sewing.


Are you saying that the thread is breaking?

CAUSES of upper thread breaking

needle is in backwards
improperly threaded
tension to tight
needle bent or blunt
thread to coarse for size of needle
needle too long for machine
burr on needle
tension discs worn so that thread works in grove
neele too fine for size of thread and fabric
lint or dirt around bobbin case holder
irregular sewing speed
AND THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS:
threads not properly pulled back under pressure foot when starting to sew
This means, Have enough of the upper and lower thread pulled to the back and hold for the first 2-3 stiches,

Do this every time and it will become second nature and you will do it automatically

My thread often becomes unthreaded from the part that raises and lowers the needle causing the thread and fabric to jam up


Your needle should not come unthreaded in the middle of sewing.. if it does, it is because the thread breaks. this can be a simple tension problem or brittle thread.

if you are talking about at the beginning of sewing that the needle comes unthreaded, then you should just pull out 6-8 inches of thread through the needle before putting your fabric under and begin sewing.

i hop that helps.
