Try these suggestions
1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed
2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide
3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case
4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads

I have a Janome 1600P and the top thread keeos breaking


There are several common reasons for upper thread breakage.

Check that the needle/thread/fabric are compatible.
All About Needles

Remove the upper thread from the machine, install a brand new needle, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point.

Top thread keeps coming out of needle. How do I thread top thread?


Be sure to pull at least 4 to 6 inches of thread through the needle's eye before beginning to sew. Pull the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric BEFORE beginning to sew.

How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread (This works for regular everyday straight stitching too not just design stitches.)

Then, BEFORE taking the first stitch, hold both thread tails with the left hand and then slowly begin stitching. After a couple of stitches, let go of the thread tails and continue to sew.

If you need instructions on how to thread your machine, search the internet for a manual:

Make + Model + the word "Manual"

or look for videos on YouTube to help with the threading process.

Keeping the thread in needle when you begin to sew


after threading the needle pull about 6" of thread out the back under the press foot
that way the thread is jammed under the foot and is held in place for the next thread
bobbin thread should also be out the back
when you have finished sewing then lift the foot and move the material sewed about 6"" away from the foot before cutting the threads

How do I fix a bobbin that keeps clogging


Try raising your top tension. Begin at four to start. Make sure you have the thread under the tension disc. Set the bobbin resistance to be equal to the top tension. This is an approximate setting. You are attempting to make it equal the top tension. If there are still problems you may replace the bobbin thread with quality thread.

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.

Poor stitch on underneath when sewing on material


Re-thread the machine with the presser foot up and see if this improves the stitching.

When a sewing machine is threaded with the foot down, the thread cannot properly enter the tension control and then when you begin to sew, then tension cannot control the flow of thread as it is designed to do.

Refer to the manual and do the routine maintenance as recommended and this will help keep the machine working as it should.
