I had the same problem with my machine and what was causing the problem was the use of the wrong size bobbin. Check and make sure you are using the right size (type a) and if you can get bobbins already wound it would be better. Hope this will help you

Take the thread out of the cassette, and use a thread stand for the spool, let it feed through the upper part of the cassette, the manual will tell you how to do it, it is like having a spool too big to thread it, that will stop the breakage tremendously. If you are doing dense embroidery (8000 an up stitches) use a larger needle like a 14 sharp or embroidery needle. If you do not have a thread stand take a 2 liter soda bottle clean and cut the bottom off by about an inch, place your thread in the bottle and feed it through the now removed cap, then proceed with the threading, be sure to place the bottle at the right of the machine behind it but away from the fly wheel.

That should do it.

Why the thread cracked with when i sticked with the machine


Thread breakage could occur for several reasons.

First, try a brand new needle.

Second, use only good quality thread--NOT old thread or bargain bin varieties.

Third, when threading the upper thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot throughout the threading process.

Verify that the thread path is correct (consult the owner's manual). Incorrect threading will usually break the thread.

Check that the upper thread tension is set at the midway point between the high & low numbers.

Top thread keeps breaking


Upper thread breaking is usually a sign of incorrect threading or tension too tight, although there are other possible problems:

When threading the upper thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat properly in the tension disks. Avoid old thread or bargain bin thread. If the thread is fraying and breaking at or near the needle eye, then try a different type of needle with a larger thread groove that will protect the thread from fraying on rough fabric. Also, check that the thread is not hanging up on something, ie the slit on the side of the spool where the thread tail is stored.

My thread keeps breaking, Ive checked and changed my needle, re-threaded bobbin and upper but every time I try to sew the upper thread breaks.


Have you tried loosening the upper tension? Remove the upper thread, RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning (make sure it follows the correct thread pathway). Sometimes the upper thread jumps out of a thread guide or wraps around something. Or try a different brand of thread? Avoid old or bargain bin threads--use good quality thread. Could also be the incorrect needle for the thread/fabric, ie thread too large for the needle eye.

The needle threader on my embroidery machine is no longer working.


There's a possibility of it being related. I would need more information though.

My thread keeps getting knotted up underneath. I have followed all the trouble shooting procedures and it still won't work.


Usually it is the top threading, tangled thread or a bent needle that causes that problem. You can call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and maybe they can suggest something else to try.

I need the correct setting for my singer merritt 3140...I keep getting bundling thread from the bobbin


Always remember that it is the opposite of what you think, it is not the bobbin thread - it is your upper threading, you don't have it threaded right. Go to brother.com and download the manual for free and then enlarge the threading page. I am sure that you will be amazed, because I sure was. Good luck

Pure problems


That series machine has had a LOT of issues with the "automatic" upper threading/needle threading mechanism. I believe that is where the issue is coming from. I would take it to a authorized Brother dealer and they should be able to diagnose. Many things can interfear with the top tension on that mech. and a good tech will be able to help.
