SOURCE: Bobbin thread breaks

Things to check for thread breakage (top or bottom)

1. Good thread in the machine - not hand thread, cheap thread, quilting thread.
2. A burr on the hook - a small nick on the hook can grab and tear threads, however this usually causes the top thread to tear, not the bottom
3. Make sure a new needle is in the machine - one made for the material you are sewing
4. The bobbin must be installed to rotate in the correct direction in your bobbin case
5. And I'll say it anyway - tensions - the primary cause of thread breaking - Remember, there are TWO tensions in a sewing machine, top and bottom. Also, the thread you see on the bottom of the stitch is the top thread, and vice-versa.

Presumably neither of you has or knows how to adjust your bobbin tension so, I'm going to presume it's your hook. Make sure you are threading the machine coorectly then you'll need to remove your needle plate by removing the two screws, pull out your hook (this is the part your bobbin sits in) but make sure you note which way it sits inside your machine. Have a look at the plastic hook for any sharp edges or burs, you may need to replace your hook or try and gently sand (400grit) the plastic if possible. The key part of the hook is the small blunted point as this is what catched the loop of thread behind the needle. Please make sure that when you put your hook back in, that it is on the left side of that little guard sticking out on the lower right of your machine.

Mine does the same thing with the cheap plastic bobbins. I switched to the metal bobbins and no more issue!

Basic Tips for All

  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.

Needle thread is wrapping around the bobbin case on my juki ddl 5550N industrial. I've set the timing and it looks perfect to me...stitch looks good. Except when I stop and pull the work away from the...

Not to familiar with the industrial machines. However, even with domestic models. the position of the 'needle' bar at the time you remove your fabric, does make a difference as to weather it pulls our smoothly or, you are going to get that "extra" loop. Needle should be half way up or all the way. maybe this might help

I looked at your manual (, customer service) and page 82 gives some good suggestions on tension, I usually use 3 or auto, then you stitch length may be too long. I ended up using metal bobbins on my machine because the plastic ones seemed to jump too much for me. I am not sure if your machine takes a 15 or 15J bobbin. If it is the 15J, I know that a SA 156 does the trick for me. I hope that will help you in some way. If not, call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask them. . Good luck

Looking for bobbins.

Techsew makes industrial sewing machines. Check out looks like they have a lot of great information there on your machine. I was looking at the bobbins they show for the Techsew and several of them look close enough to home machine bobbins that they could easily be confused.

Good luck and let me know if this helps.
