    I can not get the thread to not break and I am following my manual letter for letter

    I have exactly the same problem with this machine and I have re- threaded so many time - it is always the 4th spool thread that breaks.

When you re thread, make sure you take out your straight needle threads. completely then re thread the entire machine again. If this does not work. Thread your machine turn all tensions to 0 and pull your threads through at the needle point. slowly.

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.

Why does my singer 2732 thread keep breaking?


This happened to me several times. The way I fixed it was to:
- clean underneath where the bottom spool goes in, usually there is where the dust keep collecting.
- when holding the case spool before inserting it in the machine, make sure the thread that comes out is rolling towards YOU, the normal rolling way and NOT backwards.
- make sure the thread is not loose on the spool due to not enough thread on it.
- you might also want to check the thread on top - going through all the "curves", that somewhere is not being stock, that the thread is NOT skipping any"corners" and do not do any shortcuts when threading.
- there has to be ENOUGH thread on the TOP spool and on the BOTTOM spool.
- lastly, - pull everything out and start fresh with all the threading - top and bottom after cleaning the dust out and maybe any little bits of cut thread left over from the past work.

I'm sorry but that's all I can thing off .... I have been sawing for over 50 years and this is the way I always fix my machine every time, either manual or electric.
One thing is for sure, not all threads are appropriate for sawing machines and if you are trying to saw elastic, then you have to use the correct dial, because the usual one will NOT work and it WILL brake the thread !

I hope any of the above will help ... :)

Singer sewingmachine how to stop thread from breaking on the top


Thread breakage is often caused by a burr on the needle. Whenever i have a problem with thread breakage, I unthread the machine, replace the needle, and rethread.
Sometimes thread will wrap around the spool pin, so I use the upright spool pin or use a mug or water glass to hold the spool upright behind the machine.

My Husqvarna diamond top thread keeps breaking while doing loop embroidery. It sews a couple of stitches and then you can hear when the thread breaks. Ive tried changing the needle and bobbin, and cleaning...


Hello

Primary causes of upper thread breakage:


-- misthreading: pull all the thread off and thread again, using the manual, step by step. Read each step aloud before you do it. (sounds dumb, but helps.) (And make sure you thread the takeup lever!)

-- thread has wrapped itself around a thread guide or spool pin from one of the breaks. Take the spool off the machine before rethreading.

-- bad or damaged needle. Replace with the right size for the fabric, turned correctly (backwards needles skip stitches)

-- dirty machine, especially in the bobbin case area: review cleaning instructions and do it, using brush and vacuum only

-- bad/cheap thread: should not be slubby or break easy. Try another spool.

-- top thread tension too tight. 4 is normal for most fabrics, most stitches.

Tips;

1) do a light cleaning (brush and vacuum) every day you sit down to sew.

2) replace the needle if you hear it hit metal, if you've got a really bad thread jam, if you see it deflect as you sew (for instance, sewing over the side seam on jeans when hemming). Replace every 3-8 hours of actual stitching time anyhow.

3) buy good quality thread

4) when your machine isn't sewing right, stop; take all the thread off of/out of the machine (bobbin out of bobbin case, spool off spool pin) and give it a quick cleaning. Rethread from scratch, carefully. If that doesn't fix it, do it again, then replace needle and rethread one more time, manual in hand (yah, even if you've threaded it 8 million times before). #4 is curative about 98% of the time. The other 2% often requires professional attention.

After starting to sew the sewing machine stop. It seems to ne getting tight up at the top of the machine. It is threaded correctly. Do you have any suggestions?


This is not what you want to hear but... recheck the threading yet again. This time totally unthread it and start again. Look at the spool that holds the thread and where the thread is coming off of the spool itself. Look to see if the little notch you take the thread out of when you first open a new spool is catching the thread as it turns on the spool. If there's a possibility that is happening make sure that end of the spool is at the top. Sometimes the thread will get catch and therefore refuse to move when it is on the bottom side of the spool.

Also check to make sure the thread isn't wrapped around any of the guides and once again check to see that it is threaded correctly.

If it isn't just the thread breaking but the machine itself seeming to lock up and not move then you need to take it in for servicing.

I want to use a metallic thread for decorative sewing but the thread keeps breaking , can anyone help. I am new to the machine & embroidery thread


Three things to check:

1.You need to use a needle specifically made for metallic thread. I believe the eye of the needle is square and the thread will pass through it easier, and will not be shredded which can be a cause of breaking.

2. Be sure to check your tension to make sure it is not too tight on the top. Test your stitches, checking both top and bottom tension.

3. The thread should come off the spool straight, not twisting. The thread cone should be standing up straight and the spool should twirl to release the thread. If the spool is not moving and the thread unwinds from the stationary spool, then the thread is twisting and that can cause the breakage as well.

Left needle thread keeps breaking on my White Superlock 2000 ATS serger


the tension must be too tight or check to make sure the spool does not have a crack that is catching the thread in the middle of using the serger. When the serger is working and the spool has a crack it catching the thread then you press to go on and it gives a break the needle because the spool is still holding onto the thread

I have a Simplicity Embrodery Machine, and the needle keeps breaking. I have checked the bobbin, changed the bobbin, changed the thread, changed the pattern. It sews for about 5 seconds and then breaks.


It could be the thread is hanging up and breaking the needle.

Check the thread spool for nicks - turn the spool so the thread is feeding from the bottom of the spool.

Watch the thread as the machine stitches, if the thread is pooling at the base of the spool, use a thread net on the spool.

Open the needle plate and remove the bobbin and bobbin case - clean out any lint or thread snips that may have accumulated there - do this often to help the machine work as it should.

Brother Embroidery machine thread keeps breaking


It doesn't matter so much the thickness of the stabilizer but more a matter of it being taut like a drum and the proper stabilizer for the fabric you're using. Couple of reasons the thread breaks...the thread gets caught on the edge of the spool in the crack where the thread originally starts, you're not using the right size spool cap or the upper thread is wrapping around the spool pin. When I use my 170 for embroidering I always use the vertical spool pin to eliminate this problem. Try it and let me know how you make out.
