Thread breaks when embroidering

When I embroider on heavy weight fabric or stretchy fabric the thread breaks. I have tried adjusting the tension up and down, making all sorts of adjustments with stablizers, checked the needle several times, tried different needles. I have noticed that it does make thrashing sounds just before it shreads the thread and breaks. I have also noticed that it normally breaks within the first 50 stiches or when the direction of the design changes.

Try changing threads. If you're not using embroidery thread specifically, the "treatments" they use on different threads can really cause problems.

How can I get my janome 11000 to work when embroidering? The bottom thread doesn't even show and top thread is always breaking.


The tension(s) may be too tight and could be threaded incorrectly. Start out with a brand new needle. Be sure to RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread. Consult the owner's manual to be sure it is threaded in the proper order. Test your stitch on a straight stitch and adjust it so both threads meet in the middle of the fabric. This setting works for straight stitch. However, usually the upper thread tension is loosened a bit for embroidery so the bottom thread will not show on the top of the fabric. Test it on some small embroidery patterns first until it's where you want it.

My bobbin thread keeps coming to the top of my fabric during embroidering on my Singer Futura CE350, I've tried bobbin embroidery thread, regular embroidery thread and clear nylon thread, I've tried...


With the embroidering, some of the bobbin thread is SUPPOSED to show on the top of your embroidery-the machine isn't doing anything incorrectly. You'll need to thread your bobbin with the same thread as you are using with the top. I had the same "problem" when I first got the machine and took it to a wonderful local technician whose helped me with a lot of things who informed me that this is perfectly normal on embroidery machines.

The bottom side of the item I am embroidering is showing all of the top thread color. I have adjusted the tension dial and bobbin tension. Any other suggestions?


Normally you will see the about 1/3 bobbin thread and about 2/3 of the top thread on the bottom side of the fabric. If you dont see any of the bobbin thread on the back side turn the upper tension (needle tension) to a larger number.
Good Luck,

The top thread is really loopy on the underside of the fabric, sometimes it misses a stitch, sometimes, the upper thread breaks, and it often gets so tangled underneath that the machine won't feed.


Your tension is way too loose on top or too tight on the bobbin. Try adjusting the top tension one number at a time until you get it right. (Only adjust the bobbin tension as a last resort). Also you could have different thickness of thread in the bobbin than on the top or are sewing a very heavy fabric. Try adjusting the tension with same thread in both bobbin and top and use a normal weight fabric until you find the right tension to get you back to a normal stitch before going to a heavier fabric or thread.

Viking 1+--Thread breaks during embroidery


If the thread will not run through the tension mech on 0 then it is probably stuck on a tight setting. It can be a bit complicated but the tension mech can be stripped/cleaned/free'd up. Another possible cause is the path of the thread from the spool to the needle any deviation from the correct path increases the tension at the needle. If you do not know the history of the machine I would suggest a thorough clean and service.

Tension problem


For Staight Stitch.
Ideal

When adjusting top thread the Higher the number (on the little wheel) the tighter the top thread.

Results depend on
Stiffness and thickness of the fabric, number of fabric layers and type of stitch.

Are you using paper or a plastic bag or pellon under the fabric? This gives a smoother surface for embroidery (on the reverse) and you can cut it away after the design is complete.
