Check the needle/throat plate for that station for a burr or other damage. Replace if needed.

SOURCE: Thread tension for Brother XL 2230.

If you have pattern dials set correctly then I might guess that one or more sets may have been missed when the thread was being set up in the machine. most of these models show either arrows or numbers for each or way the thread needs to be routed.

SOURCE: Needle thread looping underneath, threads not interlocking at all

If the machine is now threaded, lift the presser foot.

Now, pull about 10" of thread through the needle.

The next time you thread the machine, lift the presser foot first.

When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens and allows the thread to "seat" into the control, then when the foot is down the control closes to the indicated setting.

When threading the machine with the foot is down, thread does not enter the tension control and when you start to sew, there is no tension on the thread.

No tension = loosey, goosey, loopy stitches underneath.

Because the lack of tension on the top thread, the bobbin thread cannot lock a proper stitch.

SOURCE: The upper thread tension on my Bernina 930 is too loose

If you threaded the machine with the presser foot lever raised and the stitching is still loose, the tension control may need a new spring or the entire control may need to be replaced.

Berninas tend to be the only brand that hold their value and it would be worth the expense to take it to an authorized Bernina dealer for service and repair.

SOURCE: My bobbin thread keeps looping

Amber,

Have you been using new bobbins? I purchased what I thought was the same size bobbin I had been using for my cs6000i, they differed in size only very, very slightly . For the life of me I couldn't figure out why I was having such trouble with my bottom thread. Upon placing one old bobbin (the correct size) beside one of the new ones I realized the difference. Make sure they are part code: SA156.

If this isn't the problem you could always adjust the tension in the bobbin casing itself with a screwdriver; the correct screw usually has a bit of paint on top of it so it's easy to locate. However, I would do that as a last resort, I've only had to tighten the bobbin casing when using elastic thread.
I hope this helps!

SOURCE: Just bought a brand new Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.0

this is a known issue with the pfaff.....i have just bought the machine and it has thread uptake issues...thread tension issues and it comes unthreaded by itself often...leaving globs of thread on the bottom stuck in the feed dogs and under the throat plate.....then the stitches are not properly balanced because the tension gets too loose on the bobbin thread....very disappointed to find out it is a known issue with all the viking husqvarna made machines...which are pfaff, janome and viking.....sux.

Futura quartet keeps shredding the top thread, help?


AVOID old or bargain bin thread--use only fresh, good quality thread. Try a brand new needle, perhaps switch to a top-stitch needle. Change to a different brand of thread. Check to make sure the top thread follows the correct threadpath and that no guides have been skipped or threaded out of order. Check that the top tension is not set too tight.

Juki ddl8700 shreds the thread


Thread shredding:

Install brand new needle(s). Make sure the needle eye is the appropriate size for the thread you are using. Check that the needle is the correct type for the fabric & thread, ie coarse (abrasive) fabric would benefit from the protection of a top stitch needle which has a larger scarf.

Sometimes the thread is being held back in the thread path causing the needle to wear and shred the thread. Check that the upper tension is correct. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread. Make sure the upper thread follows the correct path and that it is not threaded incorrectly or looped around the spool pin or a thread guide.

My Futura 400 is breaking the top thread. I've rethreaded it. I check the tension by pulling the thread with the foot and down and it seems to be right. I Removed the needle plate and cleaned.


breaking needle thread can be from
using old cotton--- thread deteriorates with age
needle installed incorrectly--- groove to face thread
thread too thick for needle eye---smaller thread or bigger needle eye
thread not between tension plates but behind a plate and getting caught on the bolt thread

I have a Singer 7466 and recently I developed an issue with the thread stripping and then breaking.


three possible reasons
old cotton will break or shred easily so get brand new cotton
next is eye size of the needle
a small eye with a heavy gauge cotton will not allow the cotton to pass easily
next is needle /hook timing
out of time allows the hook to pierce the needle thread and create the problem take it to a service centre for a check of the timing

COTTON THREADS KEEPS BREAKING


Is the spool thread catching on something (like the little notch on the thread spool) or is wrapped around a thread guide? That will tend to break the thread.

Check that you are using the correct kind of needle to match the thread and fabric you are sewing. (Are you using good quality needles? Might try a different brand.)

All About Needles

Something else to consider is whether the thread is old or bargain bin variety. Try a different brand (preferably a better quality brand) of cotton thread. Threads have really improved over the past few years. If the thread is shredding at the needle eye or you see little fuzzies on the thread (similar to the old cotton-wrapped polyester threads of the 70's), it is not good quality and should be thrown away or used somewhere else.

Another thing to check is whether there is a rough spot on the needle plate or in the bobbin area that may be snagging the thread. Wrap your index finger in some very fine fabric (old pair of hosiery, chiffon, etc.) and rub your finger around and see if it snags anywhere.

Verify that the bobbin is loaded properly in the bobbin case.

The tension could be too tight. Remove the upper thread from the machine. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--confirm it is threaded correctly. Set the tension to the midway point between high & low numbers. Retest. The tension is correct when the upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Just changed a broken needle, rethreaded everything but the threads in the top needles keep breaking


Remove all the thread. Loosen the upper tension as far as it can go and gently pull a length of UNwaxed thread or pearl cotton down through the tension disks to remove anything that may be stuck. Check that the needle has been installed facing the correct direction and that it has been inserted all the way up before the screw is tightened. Clean the bobbin area of any dirt, lint, or threads. RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. This allows the thread to seat properly. Re-thread from the beginning. Set the upper tension to the midpoint and test.

If it is still happening, then try installing a brand-new needle (the one you have may be damaged or defective). If the thread is shredding before it breaks, then there may be a needle compatibility issue.

Top thread is shredding Automatic needle threader stopped working


If the top thread is shredding it is usually because the needle and thread are not compatible. If thread is too large for the eye and the thread groove, the action of sewing will cause the thread to shred as it pieces the fabric.

Try a different needle and thread. Here's an excellent web site:

Top thread keeps snapping on consew 230b


Top thread snapping. Do you have an idea of there it is breaking?

First I would check the needle throat plate and needle. If you have stab marks on your needle plate, examine it closely for a crack. (get out the magnifying glass or jewelers loop) I recently fixed a problem I had with an old singer that kept breaking the top thread by replacing the needle plate. The old needle plate was so damaged it had actually made a knife edge which consistently cut the thread right at that location.

Change your needle and make sure it is the proper size for your thread. Too narrow of an eye can shred the thread causing it to break.

Next, check anything along your threading process that could be catching or snagging the thread. A worn or chipped thread guide can be a real problem.

Also make sure your thread hasn't dropped down below your thread cones and wrapped around the thread spindle. This would cause extra tension that might not be readily apparent.

Good luck

Thread breakage on Juki TL-2000Qi


There are a few reasons the top thread may break.
- Check the needle plate for damage around the needle hole. Polish any burrs with fine sand paper or a needle file.
Check the hook for damage. If the hook is damaged it can cause the thread to break as it comes off the tip. Be very careful if you must remove burrs from the hook. Changing the shape of the hook tip will cause skipping problems.
Check that the top tension is not too high. The top tension should be set at a medium number
Burrs on the needle plate
Burrs on the hook assembly
Bobbin tension is too tight

Shredding and breaking thread


Connie this has got to be a new machine and it sounds like you have had major problems. I would try throwing a big tantrum in the shop and demanding a replacement machine! However, that doesn't help you right now. Thread shredding and subsequent needle breakage sounds like a thread feeding issue. Is the thread spooling off the reel nicely? Is it staying in the thread guides and tension disks? Is this problem happening with regular sewing or with embroidery or with both? If it is with embroidery, watch the thread as it comes off the reel rather than watch the design sewing out. You can often see what is happening and can stop the machine before disaster strikes. Also check and double check for thread caught in the tension disks - flossing out with a dollar bill is recommended - and check for any shredded thread build-up on the take-up lever. May I suggest that you consider joining the Yahoo group for Designer Diamond machines? The amount of collective knowledge in these groups is just amazing and you will get a lot of support in using your machine to its potential there.
