SOURCE: janoneDc3018 thread bunches up .

Are you using heavy thread for the top stitching? If so you will need to tighten the top tension. You would think if it is thicker thread that you would need to loosen the top tension but you have to tighten it to help pull it up through the fabric. If you use heavy thread in the bobbin you would have to loosen the bobbin tension. Check and make sure the thread is seated in the top tension and make sure there is no lint in the tension disc. It is definitely a tension issue. Hope this helps.

i think you have something catch on the tension guides. Try to clean out anything you can see and pull a thread towards the needle. I have done this with a small knot to snare anything but be gentle. Also, rethread carefully.
Try cleaning the bobbin case too

SOURCE: The first needle thread keeps breaking as it is

could the tension be adjusted to tightly
is thread feeding off cone/spool freely
also check to see if there are any burrs on the loopers or on the throat plate
here's a tip I learned from a needle & thread expert about needle & thread compatability

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
Happy Sewing

SOURCE: right hand needle comes un threaded. sews fine for

Many times you can get a small burr on the tip of the lower looper and it will break one of the needle threads. Run your finger nail off the tip of the lower looper, all around, and check for a snag as your finger nail slides off the tip of the looper. You can get some very fine sand paper 600 grit and gently rub on the back side, top, and bottom tip of the looper. Never the front side of the looper. Try serging again and see of that doesn't help.

Thread breaks when trying to sew velcro (with sticky back substance) on rayon material. e

Use a larger diameter needle and sew at half the speed also, find Velcro without the sticky backing. that will ruin your machines lower thread paths (Bobbin case and hook areas) and cause more issues when you are done with the Velcro sewing.

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
8. try a different thead

Will not pick up bobbin thread. problem begin after sewing sticky velcro to material. needle started hitting on botton of bobbin area. i adjusted needle bar but it still will not sew.

I would try cleaning the area with some alcohal on a cotton swab and change needle. You may have caused a problem with your timing, I hope not because you will need it to be set again by your authorized center. I know there are directions on the internet but I would rather make sure that it is done right,and knock out your warranty. You have a nice machine.

My machine is not picking up the bobbin thread

check the needle to see if it's damaged
make sure to have a 3-5 inch thread tail on the bobbin
then make sure the top thead has a 3-5 inch tail , then hold the top thead with your fingers( away from the needle) & with the other hand use the handwheel on the right hand side of the sewing machine & slowly manually let down the needle into the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will come up that way

Needle stuck in the material while sewing a straight stitch.

See if you can release the bobbin from the case.

Thead keeps pulling out of needle

There are a couple of things to check, first of all check that your needle is installed correctly. Thread breaking will happen if the needle is a little off or installed backwards, or even if it may be the teenest bit bent. Best bet is to put in a new needle and make sure the groved side of the needle is towards the back of the machine.
A misaligned needle can also throw the tension out, so once you are sure about the needle you will have to adjust the tension following your machines instructions.
