here are somethings to try, 1. change the needle--flat side goes to the back of the machine 2. check the tension see if it's too tight,,usually 4 to 5 is good 3. rethread the machine top thread & bobbin area 4. check to see if there are any burrs on the needle plate where the feed dogs are (teeth area) 5. you said that you made a comforter for your husband using thick fabric,,some sewing machine are not good at sewing comforters & other heavy fabric,, it's possible that the machine is out of time, which means it will not sew good & mess up,, which means it needs to be serviced by a repair shop technican to see if it is out of time.
first let's deal with the needle becoming unthreaded,
Keeping the needle threaded is easy, always keep thread tails of 3 to 6 inches on the top thread & bobbin at all times, & make sure the thread tail are pulled behind the needle before you start to sew,, this will ensure that the thread will not come out of the needle when you start to sew.
you mention the fabric is thin,, do you have a needle that's right for the fabric your sewing?
thin fabric needs a different needle than blue jeans fabric, check your top tension & see what the setting is on, usually 3 to 5 is good.
when the needle & thread are right for the fabric then the sewing is good.
also clean under the needle plate & bobbin area for loose threads or lint
also it's a possibility that the machine could be out of time & would need to be serviced by a sewing machine repair shop-as they have the tools for the job
The tread only breaks in the needle. what can i do . i don't get to sew anything . I tread the needle and get everything ready and start the machine and as quickly as that the tread is broken and the machine has not sewn at all.
It sounds as though you have a timing problem. The lower looper is not catching the needle thread. You might try lowering the needle about 1/16 inch to see if the looper will catch the thread. If that works, you can put the needle back and adjust the needle bar. If it doesn't, then you need to take it to a technician. sewman7
