Needles keep breaking

I am having trouble understanding why the needle keeps breaking in my Yamata FY920. After a couple of minutes of sewing it brakes and parts of it fly into the room. The screw is thight and I use a standard needle. Do I need a particular type of needle? The one I am using now, looks like the ones that came with the machine when I bought it.

I am using a finesse 356 sewing machine and the thread keeps on breaking off at the needle. What could be the problem?

Could be threaded wrong. Could be tension too tight. Could be a bad needle. Could be bad thread (avoid old thread or bargain bin thread). The fabric, needle, and thread may not be compatible, ie the thread is too large for the needle's eye, could be incorrect thread for the fabric, the fabric may be too coarse and is wearing the thread and causing it to break... There could be a burr or nick somewhere that is catching the thread. The thread could be hanging up somewhere in the thread path on the way from the spool to the needle causing it to break when it reaches the needle.

Why does the right needle keep breaking in myloc 634d

I agree with John Smeed It could be that the needle is bent or in the wrong way if it keeps on breaking it must be hitting the throat plate or it's timing may be out( a pro job) Also check the needle is in as high as it can go.

Thread video needle

Question is not clear? Read the needle? The print is really small and it will just tell you the size. Needles are good for 10 hours and cost and average of 70 cents. If there is any concern about your needle, throw it away and get a different one.

When sewing thread keeps breaking and comes out of the needle

The needle thread breaks
1. the needle thread is not threaded properly
2. The needle thread tension is to tight
3. The needle is bent or blunt
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted
5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew
6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing
7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

keep longer thread tails before you begin to sew and make sure
the thread tails are pulled behind the needle before you start sewing

No action

Remove the bobbin, bobbin case as well as the shuttle hook. There are black pins/holders that hold the shuttle hook. After you remove these 3 components, make sure there are no thread stuck in between the 2 hook pieces as well as the bobbin shaft. Most of them time, there are either fabric or thread stuck. If not, make sure the needle is not hitting the feed dog or the hook.
