SOURCE: Babylock seger machine keep breaking the left side needle.

Try rethreading the machine, and make sure the thread is not wrapped around anything. Then check the tension for the needles. Run a few inches of chainstich off slowly, while watching the thread and loopers make the loops over the finger. Your threads may be in the wrong position, or underneath the wrong parts to start.

SOURCE: brother pe770 - needle threader is stuck in the

Hi Kay,
I found the manual, in case you don't have one, HERE. On page 30, it has an illustration showing two buttons, and the presser foot lever. If you press the button once or twice, it will raise the needle.
> Press (Needle position button) once or twice to raise the needle.
> The needle is correctly raised when the mark on the handwheel is at the top, as shown below. Check the handwheel and, if this mark is not at this position, press (Needle position button) until it is.
Get the manual if you don't have one, that will give you so much more than any here can do, but I think that should solve you trouble, Please rate and comment, Thank You,

Have a Brothers pe770. Having trouble with thread contently breaking but just kept rethreading. Tonight the little long brush on take-up lever feel off. Can I still use machine? How do I fix this?

If the tread keeps breaking could be it's old thread, need new needle or needle and thread not the right combo for material. Or yiur tension is too tight.
not sure about the brush falling off. Up to you to try sewing.

Top thread keeps breaking

Don't ship it back and the problem is not the tension settings. Even on the tightest setting the thread should not break. Most likely the machine is not threaded correctly. Possibly, you are using too thick a thread or a needle that is too small.

Solution back to basics:
1. verify that you are not using upholstery thread. Use a standard cotton poly mix.
2. the bobbin thread should be the same as the top thread.
3. consider watching a video showing the machine being threaded and make sure the needle is in the top position.
4. sew a test pattern on a normal weight fabric like an undershirt - avoid very thick material.

If this solves your problem then change one item at a time. Use a heaver thread if that is what you want. If it works ok then go to a thicker material, etc. Do not change two or more things at a time..If you have a problem it makes it hard to identify the source.

When top thread goes down to pull bobbin thread up, I hear a strange noise, then the top thread breaks. Help!?!?!?

Check your needle, your needle plate, bobbin, bobbin carrier and shuttle for burrs. smooth with fine sand paper if you find any. If it's a needle... change it.

Good luck

Brother Pe770 thread does not stay in the guide, before it would click in and now it faals out

It is exactly that needle guide hook.locate the needle guide and you should see a small hook that resembles a wire, it sometimes gets relocated to the bottom of the needle guide, its needs to be moved to the middle so it will hold the thread. look at your sewing machie for placement of hook if not go to trouble shooting by brother . Do not try to repair yourself because you may damage the hook at your own risk, hope I could help ---MR fixit

Upper thread breaks--needle may be in backwards--

Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine or if using a round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
