Thread breaks on the 2340CV Brother. Doing two needle and the right needle is breaking at the needle. Change needle and retreaded several times


Probably depends what that needle is hitting that is causing it to break. Make sure the presser foot and the needle plate hole are large enough to accommodate the twin needle. Twin needles come in different widths so if yours is too wide, it would break. However, it could be possible that your machine is slightly out of alignment that does not show up until you try to use a twin needle. Also, make sure that your thread is not causing the needle to break--could be misthreading. Some machines have separate guides and tension disks for twin threads. Those that don't have that accommodation may have more difficulty using a twin needle.

Needle breaking


Is the needle all the way up? Are you sure it's actually hitting the bobbin? It MAY--and quite possibly IS--inserted too low in the needle clamp. Make absolutely sure that it's all the way up. Another factor can be your foot--make sure that it's properly inserted and tight, because it's probably hitting the foot and breaking--not the bobbin. In addition, it could be hitting the needle plate. You can determine WHERE it's breaking by manually turning the hand wheel--ALWAYS towards you--several times to see the position of your needle relative to the foot and needle plate.

I am sewing a quilt and my needle is in the right place but it keeps breaking. Please help. Also, the thread break often.


here are something you might check
upper thread breaks
1.top tension to tight
2.thread to thick or to fine for needle
3.needle not inserted correctly
4.thread caught on something-spool pin, tension area
5.needle damaged
6.needle thread is not threaded properly

Needle breaks
wrong size needle for fabric
wrong foot is attached
needle clamp screw is loose

also check for lint & pieces of broke needle under the needle plate
also the bobbin case area -take the bobbin & case out & check for pieces of broke needle

here is a tip about needle & thread
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

Needle breaks on my Shark Euro-pro model 361 my


Are you inserting the needle fully into clamp? You may have a bad lot of needles that werent straight. Try sewing by hand with machine to see exactly where and when needle breaks, then you might be able to solve problem.
