Most sewing machines the needle goes in flat side to the back of the machine,
if it continues to break needle the it could be out of time & needs to be serviced

SOURCE: I have been sewing denim,

Are you trying to use a heavy thread like buttonhole twist through the needle like the yellow thread on store bought jeans? Most domestic machines will not cope with this heavy thread and it will be too large for the eye of the needle too.

If you are using regular weight 50 polyester thread and its breaking then it could be because the top tension is too tight. Just loosen off 1/2 a number on top tension dial and see if this helps.

If possible, buy a pack of jeans needles size 100 too, these are blue coated with teflon I think, and makes it easier to slip through denim which is a very dense fabric.

Hemming denim jeans is probably one of the toughest jobs for a domestic sewing machine so if you are trying to do this, its a good idea to take it slowly and use a "humpjumper" which helps to maneouvre over the thick side seams.

However, even with all the above, many machines won't sew more than one layer of heavy dense weave denim.

The thread is breaking the whole time, what could possibly be the problem?


Could be several things, ie mis-threading, burr or snag is catching the thread, old/bargain bin thread, needle is not compatible with thread and fabric, tension is incorrect...

The first thing to try (and also the least expensive), install a brand new needle.

Remove the upper thread. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

Sewing Machine Thread Keeps Breaking

Why does my thread keep breaking on my brother ce4000? The machine is 100% threaded correctly new needle properly wound bobbin, I just don't know what could be wrong with it.


Could be a multitude of things. Use only good quality thread--no old or bargain bin threads. Try a different brand of thread--some machines prefer certain brands over others. The needle and thread should be compatible--ie needle eye shouldn't be too small for thread weight. Burr catching the thread and breaking it. Upper tension too tight.

Remove the upper thread, RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread is not looped incorrectly in the thread path, like around a thread guide or around the spool pin. Is the thread snagging on the thread spool itself? Do you see the thread tightening as you sew and eventually it breaks? This indicates it is catching somewhere between the needle and spool. Is it shredding at the needle eye? This indicates the needle eye is not suitable for the thread being used.

Watch where the thread is breaking. This will sometimes give you a clue where the problem exists.

The top tread breaks after about 1inch when trying to do chain stich on my janome cover stich machine


Could be the result of several things. There could be some gunk or threads stuck in the tension disk. Be sure to remove the thread and rethread from the beginning in the order specified. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading!!!! If you haven't tried a brand new needle, do so, and make sure it is pushed all the way up and installed with the flat side facing the correct direction. Some machines recommend #90 as the largest needle to use. Also, perhaps the needle eye is too small to accommodate the thread. Watch where the thread is breaking to give you an idea of where the problem may originate. Try a different brand of thread. Sometimes black thread causes issues because the heavy dye affects the thread. Set the tensions at the midway point and then loosen the tension on that one needle. There could also be a burr or rough spot somewhere along the threadpath that is catching the thread. Last idea--could be a timing issue.

I have a consequent rb5 , bobbin thread is not feeding top thread, also needle keeps breaking off


First make sure you are putting in needle correctly, it has a flat side.
Insert a new needle into your sewing machine with the flat side away from you. Push the needle into the clamp until it touches the pin (a) and stops. Firmly tighten needle clamp screw with the screw driver.
if you find all the thread bunched up then look at your thread not being routed through all the the locations. Go slow and retread from beginning.

My thread keeps breaking, Ive checked and changed my needle, re-threaded bobbin and upper but every time I try to sew the upper thread breaks.


Have you tried loosening the upper tension? Remove the upper thread, RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning (make sure it follows the correct thread pathway). Sometimes the upper thread jumps out of a thread guide or wraps around something. Or try a different brand of thread? Avoid old or bargain bin threads--use good quality thread. Could also be the incorrect needle for the thread/fabric, ie thread too large for the needle eye.

Thread keeps breaking when I sew.


one of three issues: top tension too tight, bottom tension too tight, needle timing off.

My sewing machine keep sewing a little bit but breaks the thread everytime the bottom thread is at 0 and 1 my top thread is at 2 or 3 and the top thread breaks please tell me what wrong I am new too.


possibly the top thread is being restricted in movement
check that the thread is between the tension plates and not behind it or knotted up in the way it is threaded
pull on the needle thread and it should move with a steady pull not very hard
if it is not moving fairly easily the check how you have the thread installed
also old thread will break easily as the bonding used to keep the strands together breaks down and is difficult for the thread to slide though the needle
another point is the needle to hook timing and the clearance there as well .
if there is a problem there , the hook will split the thread from the needle and break it
if you still have problems , take it to a sewing machine service center ( any one ) and they will advise of the problem and show you how to fix it

When sewing thread keeps breaking and comes out of the needle


The needle thread breaks
1. the needle thread is not threaded properly
2. The needle thread tension is to tight
3. The needle is bent or blunt
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted
5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew
6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing
7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle


keep longer thread tails before you begin to sew and make sure
the thread tails are pulled behind the needle before you start sewing

Left needle thread breaking


My first inclination would be to change the needle. I could have been defective from the beginning. If it will serge without left needle, then you know that everything else is threaded correctly. Good luck.
