SOURCE: The thread breaks after sewing about 4 inches.

You do not say what model you have. Check this site out, if you need a manual.

What you need to do is to give it a good cleaning.


MAKE SURE YOU KEEP THE SCREWS WITH THE PARTS TAKEN OFF AND MAKE NOTE OF HOW YOU TAKE THING APART SO YOU CAN GET IT BACK TOGETHER

If this is the old metal machine, (I love them) remove the screws and plate on the top, (set this aside)

remove screw and part from the left side of machine, (set aside)

remove the needle (note how needle comes out, flat side in the back)

remove the needle plate

You are now able to see most of the inner workings of the machine

Using a can of air (do not put too close to machine parts) dust all the open parts. Can also use old fime paint brushes to get into dmall areas

now using ONLY sewing machine oil, TURN the hand wheel by hand, put a drop of oil on parts that go in and out of each other, rub over each other (on top, over the needle area and in the bobbin area, (IN bobbin area you can use a q-tip with oil to rub the area)

If turning the hand wheel by hand to oil moved freely, you can plug in machine and run machine to get the oil in all the parts (this will lubricate the parts you just oiled.

Put machine back together,

Use the air agsin to dust between the tension disks.

When winding the bobbin, make sure it winds even up and down.
thread machine and try

MAKE SURE YOUR BOBBIN THREAD AND TOP THREAD ARE PULLED TO THE BACK BEFORE SEWING AND HOLD THE THREADS FOR THE FIRST FEW SITCHES, IF NOT THE MACHINE WILL PULL THE THREADS AND YOU WILL GET BREAKAGE

GOOD LUCK

Testimonial: "Thank you for your advise. I know the machine needed oiled. The thread still breaks, but now it will sew a little longer before the thread breaks."

Thread keeps breaking


Here are a few sites that may be helpful in diagnosing your problem:

NUMBER ONE SUGGESTION--install a brand new needle. Sewists are known to be very frugal about changing needles but it is usually the easiest and least expensive fix for a lot of problems.
Remove all the thread from your machine, clean the bobbin area of any lint, threads, etc. Be sure that you RAISE the presser foot BEFORE you thread the upper thread. This releases the tension disks so the thread will seat properly. Now, re-thread from the beginning verifying you are following the correct threading sequence (consult your manual).

The standard factory tension setting is the midpoint, ie of the range is 1-10, set the tension at 5 and then adjust from there.

Loose underthread and no zig zag


Lower thread tension can be adjusted by tightening (clockwise) the small screw in the bobbin case. The specifications call for 12-20 g resistance when pulling the thread slowly. I suggest tightening in increments of 1/8 turn and trying the machine each time. Also, mark the position of the screw in its original position should you need to return to the original setting and start over (use a piece of tape and place a mark where the slot in the screw is). I don't understand what you're saying about the zig zag problem.

When i thread the sewing machine and sew, the stitches do not stay


Possible
you need to change the needle, if it is a little broken at the head, it's not grabbing the underthread.

Motor is spinning- needle not going up and down.


Check that the inner part of the flywheel is tightened up. This has to be loosened when winding a bobbin for underthread. Easy to forget to re-tighten it for sewing.

Small loops in the underthread


If the hook of the machine has a small burr on the point it can and will snag the upper thread and keep it from locking securely. The hook is what the bobbin case snaps on to. Take some light metal sanding material and polish the point to remove burr.
