    I have a very very old Brother doing the same thing. I have taken it apart and I believe it has something to do with the bobbin assembly. Everything else works great until I engage those gears then it doesn't want to move. When I un-engage those gears the needle moves smooth as silk, but there is no stitching b/c the bobbin assembly is not engaged.

When using the 5 threads, do you have to move a needle and when using all five threads, should all five be in the thread tail, or will two threads be loose?

when using a 5 thread serger, and all 5 needles have to be used,, but if your using 3 or 4 threads then you'd only use 3 needles, you can remove the needles, just remember to insert them back in correctly

My needle threads keep on breaking, I don't know what to do

  • Check the tension of the upper thread. If it's too tight, the pressure on the thread will cause it to break.
  • Check the thread you are using. If you're using two different kinds (one on top and one in the bobbin) that difference can cause the threads to break.
  • Are you using the proper thread for the job? Using a thin or light thread for sewing heavy fabric can lead to breakage.
  • Are you using the correct needle? Sewing knits with a sharp needle or sewing woven fabrics with a knit or ballpoint needle can also cause the thread to snap.
  • Is your machine threaded correctly? Incorrect threading can be another cause for thread breakage.
I hope this helps.

When sewing, the thread keeps pulling the fabric threads and the result looks messy. I've tried playing with the thread tension but it won't help.

have you tried using a new needle- if the needle is the slightest bet bent or or damaged it can cause problem with the fabric threads

if the needle is not the correct one for the fabric, it can move or damage the fabric threads

also clean under the needle plate for loose threads or lint also in the bobbin area

Using Janome 8080 for free motion quilting and tension is not working. Tried different threads, needles and tension settings. Sometimes it works for a few inches but then the tension gets really loose on...

check to see if cleaning is needed. Threading and bobbin are correctly done. Could be thread if using a cheap brand. Try Sewer's Aid as a last alternative. That item is great for problem threads.

It is threaded. but it goes through motion but there is no sewing.

Make sure that your bobbin is full and that you have picked up the bottom thread. Before you start sewing you should have two threads lying on the needle plate. To catch the bobbin thread, hold the needle thread and turn the machine by the hand wheel. The needle will bring the bobbin thread up with it. Pull the threads out about 4 inches and then you are ready to sew.

Thread breaks when free motion quilting...what tension should I be at?

Firsrt, try going slower, especially on curves. The Juki is so danged fast, it's easy to run faster than the thread can handle. As far as tension, the best approach is to experiment with a scrap quilt "sandwich" until you find the best tension settings. Also, could your problem be with the thread you're using? Different threads call for tension adjustments. Try using a bigger needle-smaller needles can "cut" the thread, as can defective needles, especialy on curves with free motion. Tension issues are, without a doubt, the biggest problem I've had, but patience and experimentation will usually solve whatever is going on.

My Pfaff 4.0 breaks needles and shreds thread when free motion quilting

a sewing machine I work on last week, I put a new needle in the needle clamp & thought I had it correctly inserted,, but it wouldn't work,, so I went back & checked the needle again & found I had to unscrew the needle clamp screw even more than normal to insert the needle then it work perfectly.

some needles & thread don't work togeather--here's a tip
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

also clean under the needle plate where the feed dogs are for lint
& also in the bobbin area for lint & loose threads
