Huskeylock 560 ED T. Why does the blue guide thread ( No1) keep breaking all the time??

Remove ALL the threads from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Make sure to thread in the ORDER specified--threading out of order will guaranty failure!!! Check that each thread follows the correct path. Set the tension disks to the midway point and retest your machine.

Hi. I am using a walking foot- bernina 560-the top thread seems ok, but on the back you can see some of the top thread. Puckers a little. What should I do?

increase the top thread tension up a bit
it is known as "bird nesting" and indicates that the top thread is not pulling the bobbin thread up tight
needle thread tension is NOT a "set and forget" item as different thread thicknesses , material thickness and needle eye size all have an impact on the tension and it has to be change to suit

Threading Serger this may be helpful even if it is not the same model. The sequence of threading loopers is VERY important. If you thread them out of order, be prepared to be frustrated beyond belief!!! Something else (I don't think she mentioned) is to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading your machine. This is true for sergers AND sewing machines!

My Diana 560 doesn't make a stitch, I've checked the needle, the proper Threading, the lint that might have Collected in the well, it runs well, But not a single sticth.

Consult your manual to confirm you have threaded the upper thread and bobbin thread properly. Is the needle installed with the flat side facing the right direction? Did you remember to RAISE the presser foot before threading the upper thread? Are you pulling at least 4-6" of thread through the needle's eye and through the bobbincase before you begin to sew? Once the machine is threaded (top and bobbin), can you manually rotate the handwheel one complete turn and pull the bobbin thread to the top? Like this: How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

If the bobbin thread does not come up, then your machine probably needs service.

Here are some other suggestions:

Threading up a bobbin in a singer 560 sewing machine

I'm guessing it's probably the same as mine (8280). This is what the manual says: "Hold the bobbin case with one hand, insert the bobbin so that the thread runs in a clockwise direction. Pull the thread through the **** and under the finger. Hold the bobbin case by the hinged latch and insert into the shuttle." It's hard to describe, but if you've sewn before, it should come back quickly. To be more specific, hold the bobbin case in your left hand, insert the bobbin so the thread is coming up from underneath, pull thread through the **** and into the part where the hole is. If you slide the thread around, it will fit into the slot in there. Pull the latch out and insert it into the shuttle.

Hope this helps.

Bother VX 560

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} all machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.
