SOURCE: Brother Sewing Machine model:CS8150 bobbin thread problems

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

SOURCE: threading a sewing machine

What do you mean you are unable to pull the bobbin thread through, elaboration would help solve the problem...
I suspect I'm having the same problem with you if it's anything to do with the top thread looping around in the bobbin holder.

Damn machine!

TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

SOURCE: need help to thread our sewing machine.

you really must get a manual for this machine.
You can find manuals online for a small price.
At one time some sites had them for free, but I haven't been able to find many recently. sewusa.com has some older ones for free. but not many. you could try the kenmore site as well, if not I'd try to search on dogpile.com (sewing machine manuals)
Just so you know, your manual is the MOST important tool for any sewing machine, and its worth a couple of bucks to get it.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore 385 (12116690) the thread keeps breaking

I have this same machine, it belonged to my husbands grandmother and was given to me after she passed. I let it sit for a few years before I got it out to use it, it was just too emotional. I had this same problem, and after cleaning, it worked fine. I followed the instructions in the manual for taking out the bobbin, bobbin case and metal parts that hold it in the machine. (there are pictures in the manual to help you take it out, take it apart, and put it back in... sounds hard but it's really not). I used a tooth brush to get all of the dust bunnies out (you could go over with a vacuum hose too, after the toothbrush cleaning). After I did this it worked fine. You may want to look in the manual about oiling the machine, if it's been years since it's been done, that might help to. Hope you get it working! I love this machine, it works well and is good quality. (they don't make sewing machines like they used to, the only one I'll buy is a Kenmore!)

The thread continues to break


Install a brand new needle--one that matches the type of thread and fabric you are sewing. If the thread is shredding at the needle, then the needle's eye may be too small for the thread.

All About Needles

Avoid using old or bargain bin thread. Try a different type of thread.

Check that the thread is threaded correctly in the machine and that it is not wrapped around the thread spool or a thread guide. Also, set the upper tension to the midway point, ie the tension could be too tight.

How to fix my sewing machine top thread keep breaking


1. Replace thread if it is too old or poor quality.
2. Replace needles.
3. Check/set bobbin tension.
4. Check/set top tension. When you thread your machine do it with the pressure foot up. While threading apply small tugs in small ranges to check for snags. Begin to sew at about a tension of four.
5. Attached there is a document of how to set the bobbin tension.

All of a sudden , as soon as i finish sewing a piece of fabric the thread will break. i can continue to sew as the main machine is still threaded.


There may be a bit of thread stuck in the bobbin or somewhere under the machine. Turn the machine sideways and look with a flashlight. Then turn the wheel a couple times and look again...Good Luck...xo

Tried to thread the bobbin but the machine just have the sound but not doing anything


are you sure you followed all steps? Make sure you followed the
threading diagram correctly. You must pull your thread through a hole in the bobbin,threading from the inside of the bobbin to the out side .hold the thread on the outside of the bobbin and wrap thread around the bobbin shank twice. Hold the thread in place and find the groove on the bobbins' outside then match that to the "wire" on the spindle of the winder. You will then disconnect the drive by turning the small knob inside the hand wheel. Next ,you will push the bobbin spindle against the small wheel to create traction to turn and fill the bobbin. My guess is that either the bobbin was not in place or you forgot to push the winder against the traction area. Happy sewing.

Thread keeps slipping out of the first thread guide while sewing causing the tension to be off


try using a small piece of tape on the thread guide and see if that
helps the thread to stop coming out of the thread guide.

Tighten the tension


Try these following steps:1. Look to see whether the thread loopsappear on the fabric back side. If this is the case, the tension on your sewingmachine is too loose.2. Check to see if your fabric ispuckering on the front side when you sew. If this happens, then your tension istoo tight.3. Adjust your needle thread tensionwith your machine threaded and your presser foot pedal down.4. Turn your thread tension dial asneeded. If you increase the number on your tension thread dial, you will beincreasing the tension on your sewing machine. If you are lowering the numberon your tension thread dial, you will be decreasing the tension on yourmachine.5. Clean your thread tension with asmall piece of paper or a toothpick. Slide the toothpick or paper between thediscs to remove any tangles of thread.Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

The upper thread spool breaks all the time when I start sewing after four stitches.


Step 1
read the manual completely before u start.
Step 2
Use the handwheel to make the needle rise and fall. Repeat this process with the foot pedal, treadle or knee press. Wind a bobbin and thread your sewing machine. Sew several test seams to assess the problems with your machine. The most common problem is a tight or sticking handwheel and machine movement. Step 3 Unplug your Singer sewing machine and dismantle it. Remove visible screws and take the machine apart as far as you are able. If the motor is mounted on the back of the machine, remove it. Repairing a Singer sewing machine, regardless of the problem, will start by taking apart the machine, cleaning it and oiling it.
Step 4 Use tweezers to remove any loose threads from the bobbin area and threading assemblies. Compressed air may also be used in small amounts; however, you should be wary of pushing lint further into the machine.
Step 5 Use a rag with a lubricant like WD-40 or Liquid Wrench to clean all accessible gears and moving parts. Wipe the lubricant away thoroughly and apply a drop of sewing machine oil on moving parts of the machine. Examine your Singer sewing machine carefully for broken gears or pieces. Check the belt, if visible, for signs of wear.
Step 6 Use an emery cloth to smooth away any burrs or rough spots on the bobbin assembly or feed plate. Often a small burr can cause significant problems with thread breakage.
Step 7 Reassemble you Singer sewing machine, assuming you cannot see any visible broken parts or damage. Try sewing with your machine again. If you have noted problems with the motor or gears, your local Singer repair shop may be able to order parts for you if you want to handle a more involved sewing machine repair on your own.

Step 8
Use a mild solution of water and a basic soap, such as Dr. Bronner's or Ivory dish liquid, and a clean, well-wrung rag to wipe down the outside surfaces of your Singer sewing machine. Dry the sewing machine well. Very old machines may benefit from an application of sewing machine oil to the exterior of the metal sewing machine casing. Rub in well and wipe away the excess.

now try sewing... hope ur problem could have been recovered.

Hi I have threaded the machine several times and the thread keeps snapping as soon as I start sewing. I've re-threaded the bobbin and replaced the needle and it still continues to go wrong. Help!


You may still be threading the machine wrong.

Do you have the manual to look at. If you still think that everything is threaded right. Try looking at the spool of thread, on every spool there is a small slice to hold the thread when not in use. Make sure when you put the thread on the spool holder, put the slice side on first so that it is torward the back, Also when you put the spool cover on make sure it is not to big or small for the spool.

After all this;
After threading the machine and ready, before you begin to sew, lift the foot up with the lever and pull the threads from under the needle they should pull freely, if either the top or bottom thread feel tight you can tell which thread is getting caught on something. Re-check the threads.

Also make sure that the thread is going through the tension disks correctly, they go between the dsks not behind, if this machine has the down and around the tension make sure it is done right.

Hope this helps

While sewing on singer quantum futura ce-200 sewing machine, thread bunchedup on underside of fabric and bobbin case flew out more than once.


Mine did this and it seemed impossible to fix. My problem was a tiny bit of thread stuck in the bobbin cover (but it could be anywhere in the thread route). I ran dental floss through the path the thread follows and also in the bobbin cover and poof out came a small piece of thread that all my looking missed. Hope this helps.
