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.

Is a dressmaker 300z able to sew heavy material like leather


Depends how thick the material is. Most mechanical machines will sew thicker fabrics, however, if the needle is unable to penetrate the fabric, it could damage the machine. Be sure to use a heavier, sharp needle.

Thread spool

Tension

Needle.
There may be an extra or one less of the guides but for the most part I've been able to thread any machine.

I have an empisal overlocker and the needles keep breaking. What am I doing wrong?


Perhaps this will give you some ideas:

Serger needles Threads Magazine Gatherings Forum Sewing Questions Answers

Make sure the threads are not hanging up somewhere on the way to the needles. As suggested, if checking the needles, thread path, and tension does not achieve success, you may need to take it for service. Could be a timing issue.

Singer 3825 upper thread keeps breaking


You might have an old needle. Most sewing experts recommend changing the needle between each project. As the needle ages the eye of the needle becomes rough and cuts the thread.
Alternatively, you might be using the wrong needle. Depending on the thickness of your fabric and the type of thread you are using you should adjust your needle type. There are needles for denim and needles for metallic threads.
When I have chronic problems like this I rethread both my upper and lower thread and that usually resolves the problem.

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

My thread keeps breaking when I sew over a seam, I have replaced the needle, tried a different cotton, & replaced the bobbin case & it still keeps breaking any suggestions?


Hi
You seem to have done everything as correctly as expected.
There are some minor things that could be disturbing yet.
Make sure that needle is exacly correct in her place and that the thread isthread from the correct side. One thing I knowworks wellwhen sewing thick parts is to hold the fabric in such a way that it is a bit streched under the needle and to let the machine go slowly over the thick bits.
Hope this will be of some help
