Sew easy sewing machine breaks thread

The only name that shows up the sewing machine is sew easy appliances corp of America. It was my mother in laws who has pasted on and I have no clue to where the users manual is. So this is my problem I thread the machine like I'm suppose, bobbin works fine, I start to sew and after the third stitch the thread breaks. The needle is not hitting on anything that I can tell, the thread is new, I have tried setting it on every tension setting there is and it still breaks. The needle is brand new its inserted properly. So is there anyway you think you can help me out.

Thank you so much,
Jamie Jarrard

I have tried everything and the thread still breaks after the first stitch. I thought it might be the need placement, It is an old white machine with no manual. I have the needle set up to thread from the side. Is this correct.

The machine is not threaded correctly, also use medium weight fabric. Check the size of needle. Try a size 14. The bobbin tension may be to tight. If nothing works take it to an expert. After he fixes it make sure he shows you how to thread it.

The upper thread tension keeps breaking the thread, no matter how low I set the tension. How do I fix it?


Not a technician, but I had same issue not long ago, it was old dried out thread. Once I replaced with new thread, no more issues. Something easy to try. Also might want to double check to make sure no thread is between the pressure plates. I use canned air to spray them out once in a while between annual cleaning.

reduce the upper tension until the thread doesn't show on top anymore. This will probably solve both problems.The problem you describe is mechanical not computer related.
