Question about Sewing Machines
I thread the machine and it sews just fine, yet the thread breask everytime I try to pull the sewiung item out from the sewing area
Kathy. Get in the habit of stopping the machine with the take up lever in the UP position. Then lift the presser foot, and pull your item away. If you still have issues..... try "flossing" with unwaxed floss the tension discs. And check to
make sure you are in between the discs rather than to one side of them or the other.

Sorry but there is no way to explain how to re-assemble the tension mech on here, you need to be actually shown or have someone do it for you. It is very fiddly and needs to be exact, can I suggest you get in touch with a sewing machine tech who(at cost) will sort you out.
Sorry I cannot be of any further help.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread breaks
Make sure your bobbin thread is turning clockwise as it sits in the bobbin case. There is a screw on the outside of the bobbin case you can turn with your thumb slightly to adjust tension. If you dangle the case from the thread and give it a light ****, it should move down slightly when doing so-an indicator of good bobbin tension.

SOURCE: Thread breaking
Well, I have owned the Janome 1600DP with the Gracie Frame for 3 years now and have only successfully quilting 3 quilts. Its very intimidating how easily the thread breaks!!!! Add hot flashes with the frustration and I've almost given up. Today, I think I have found something. I cleaned the bobbin case, cleaned between the discs, put in a new needle (using the one recommended) but I put the spool of thread in a coffee cup located at the non-sewing end of the machine, sitting it on the Gracie Frame. Then the thread is through the metal eye ring that came with the frame. All the rest of the threading is per the Janome instructions. So far, so good. There you have it but if I had to purchase a sewing machine again for quilting quilts, it would NOT be a Janome!!!

The tread only breaks in the needle. what can i do . i don't get to sew anything . I tread the needle and get everything ready and start the machine and as quickly as that the tread is broken and the machine has not sewn at all.

Always have the presser foot in the UP position when threading the machine. This opens the tension disc to allow the thread to nestle inside the assembly.
Make sure the thread passes through the take up lever
Make sure you inserted the thread in every thread guide
I always recommend a sharp needle. You may not notice any slight bends, burrs or dullness in the needle which would throw off the timing and the stitch quality.
SPOOL CAP - If you have a horizontal spool pin a spool cap is very important. Its also very important the spool cap covers the end of the spool of thread but make sure its not too big or it will throw off the thread tension.
TOP TENSION DIAL - The setting should be between 3 and 5 on most machines.
The best way to know if you threaded the tension assembly correctly is to put the presser foot in the DOWN position. Now take the thread from the right of the tension assembly and pull. Is there tension on the thread or does it pull out very easily? If it pulls out easily you threaded it incorrectly. Try it again
also check under the needle plate for lint
and in the bobbin case area for lint or loose threads
