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.

What do you mean you are unable to pull the bobbin thread through, elaboration would help solve the problem...
I suspect I'm having the same problem with you if it's anything to do with the top thread looping around in the bobbin holder.

Damn machine!

TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

SOURCE: need help to thread our sewing machine.

you really must get a manual for this machine.
You can find manuals online for a small price.
At one time some sites had them for free, but I haven't been able to find many recently. sewusa.com has some older ones for free. but not many. you could try the kenmore site as well, if not I'd try to search on dogpile.com (sewing machine manuals)
Just so you know, your manual is the MOST important tool for any sewing machine, and its worth a couple of bucks to get it.

SOURCE: Upper thread knots up with bobbin thread when sewing a stich

Thread test
Test your thread quality to start, thread your machine and LIFT the presser foot (this opens the tension disks). Pull your top thread straight back. If you feel no tension no mater how much thread you pull, your thread is good. If that your machine passes that test, then let me know, we can go to step 2. If not, try different spool of thread, same test until you get a smooth pull (tip: always check your thread this way when you thread your machine)
Step 2:
Pull on your threaded bobbin thread while it’s in the machine. Does it pull smooth and even? If so, go to step 3. If not, try a new bobbin (bobbins get bent or distorted if wound too tight).
Clean thoroughly in the hook and bobbin case area and oil 1-2 drop is all.
Thread knotting on the bobbin can be a lot of things but here's some guidance:
Tension:
If the thread is loose on the bottom of the fabric, it's actually the top thread is too loose. Think of 2 little elves playing tug of war in your machine, one on toip and one underneath. If you have loops on bottom, the top needs to pull harder (tighten top tension)
Jamming bobbin case:
If it is damaged from turning out of place once, it could have rough spots on it that makes the thread hang on it, and keeps making it turn over and over. Use a finger nail board (fine sanding) and smoothall rough spots. Then reset the bobbin case taking care to put the notch in the bobbin case in alignment with the proper spot in the machine (basically 5 o’clock) when looking at the round area where the bobbin case goes.

How do I thread my Lemair 875 Sewing Machine please


Never thread a sewing machine with the presser foot down as the thread is not accepted through the tension disk at the top of the machine. Also change your needle! A sewing machine needle should be replaced every 10 sewing hours. Check your manual for the way a needle is inserted, some face left, some face right and most have the flat side of the needle at the rear.... it's not hard! sewing should be fun, not stressful. Happy sewing.

My mums lemair Helvetia, when on zigzag only, mucks up every 4th stitch. It forms a thread loop on the underside. And what needle is the correct needle for this machine?


it's possible that the gear or cam that make the zig zag stitch is
worn or broken or loose, there's no way to know for sure with out
having a sewing machine shop look at the machine.
you mentioned the needle, when sewing on cotton you need one
kind of needle and for knits you need a different needle, so
according to what kind of fabric that tell what kind of needle has to
be used for the stitches to come out right.
also check the top tenison--on a scrap fabric,,try to tighten the top
tension and see if the helps stop the thread loops on the underside.

Place the origin bobbin thread so the thread is coming up (clockwise) extend to the thread tention, to the top thread holder, then down through the arm and then through the bottom thread holder, through the square thread guide above the needle, then through the needle, front to back. Check out a picture on ebay or amazon. That could help you visualize it.
If you are having trouble with the thread breaking, try changing the thread on the bobbins. The thread that comes with the machine is poor quality and jams & breaks. If you still have trouble, and might suspect the needle is dull or bent. Change it, it makes a difference. I had the thread problem with the machine right out of the box. Changed it and it works great!
