1) Open the needle plate and bobbin case and make sure the tangled threads are removed.

2) Open the manual; read and follow every step.

3) Thread the machine with the presser foot up - this is often overlooked and causes loopy stitches that pull right out.

4) Make sure the bobbin in inserted so the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

5) Take hold of the needle thread and lower, then raise the needle to pull the bobbin thread up through the needle plate. Take both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

6) When you come to the end of the stitching, make sure the take up lever is at it's highest position. This will keep the thread from coming out of the needle when you begin to sew.

I hope this will help and you will soon be sewing.

Bobbin unthreads my needle and will not sew


Try changing the needle to a new one, size 12, a dull or bent needle will cause this.

I'm using Brother Poly thread on my Brother PE-770. Everything was fine until I changed needles. I followed the directions exactly. But now, when I embroider, my thread keeps unraveling and the needle...


Please check your needle position, putting it in backwards is a very common error, the FLAT side of the needle shank should be towards the back. Also be sure that during the transition, that the bobbin thread did not get misaligned.
So, make sure the needle has the flat side to the back, and rethread your bobbin thread through making sure it is correct.

Needle come unthreaded


try changing the needle--it's possible that something is wrong
with the tip of the needle
check on the needle plate for burrs--if you find any gently use a file
to remove them--but not enough to damage the needle plate
also check in the bobbin area for burrs

Needle keeps unthreading???? HELP!!!


Ok... so now that you have the length of thread the proper length to start a seam. Are you holding the threads when you start to sew?

Is your needle the proper size for your thread and project?...
Also check the throat plate (where the needle goes through to the bobbin) is it in good shape... or does it show stab marks from the needle? If it shows stab marks.... it could be damaged an may need replaced.

I advise putting your project away and only using scrap pieces to sew on until you get this issue resolved.

After automatic thread cut the needle comes unthreaded


you need long thread tails, of 3 to 6 inches for the top & bobbin thread so the needle doesn't come unthreaded,
also pull the thread behind the needle before you start to sew

I needle comes unthreaded whenever we try to sew. We've both tried numerous times and it doesn't make a sitch. The bobbin seems to be done correctly b/c the bottom thread comes up with no problem....


first let's deal with the needle becoming unthreaded, Keeping the needle threaded is easy, always keep thread tails of 3 to 6 inches on the top thread & bobbin at all times, & make sure the thread tail are pulled behind the needle before you start to sew,, this will ensure that the thread will not come out of the needle when you start to sew.

you mention the fabric is thin,, do you have a needle that's right for the fabric your sewing?
thin fabric needs a different needle than blue jeans fabric, check your top tension & see what the setting is on, usually 3 to 5 is good.

when the needle & thread are right for the fabric then the sewing is good.

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

also it's a possibility that the machine could be out of time & would need to be serviced by a sewing machine repair shop-as they have the tools for the job

The needle will not stay threaded every time i mash the peddle to start sewing, the needle comes unthreaded


Place the upper thread, along with your lower thread UNDER the presser foot....you may not be allowing enough thread off of the bobbin and roll. Pull out the thread to about 6 inches and see what happens, Happy Sewing!

Tacsew T500 : Needle continually comes unthreaded


No this machine does not use a bobbin. I just purchased one too and called the supplier to help me keep mine threaded. He said they do not take much tension at all. So check your tension and then when threading it, make sure your thread goes under the bar in the center of the tension disk, not on top of.
Good luck, once you get it going it does a beautiful job!!!! Love it, Love it!
