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

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 comes unthreaded when machine is started brother 2600 I


Pull both bottom and top thread to the back of the machine for about 10 cm or 4 inches out before you start stitching. Hold them loosly. Put fabric under the foot (the whole foot, don't start at the raw edge), make sure foot is down (to ensure tension). Start with the needle in the top position.
Your needle is likely to become unthreaded when the needle goes down and back up. But not if you hold the thread (and enough of it). Happy sewing.

My needle keeps coming unthreaded. HELP please


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.

Bought for a child, ls2000 the needle unthread


Make sure the needle is installed correctly. With most sewing machines, this would be with the flat side of the needle shaft facing the back of the machine.

NEEDLE KEEPS COMING UNTHREADED WILL NOT CATCH IN FABRIC


Most machines need to have the thread extend to the back of the machine in order not to come unthreaded.

My thread often becomes unthreaded from the part that raises and lowers the needle causing the thread and fabric to jam up


Your needle should not come unthreaded in the middle of sewing.. if it does, it is because the thread breaks. this can be a simple tension problem or brittle thread.

if you are talking about at the beginning of sewing that the needle comes unthreaded, then you should just pull out 6-8 inches of thread through the needle before putting your fabric under and begin sewing.

i hop that helps.
