SOURCE: industrial sewing machine top thread breaking

The brother DB 2 series of machines do not use a needle with a flat side. the needle system is DBX1 and are available from size 10 to size 20.
Try using the right needle for the machine and the right size for the thread you are using. this should make it better

SOURCE: thread coming out of eye of right needle on huskylock 910

Hi:

Try replacing the right needle and do a test stitch. If it still comes out of the needle... loosen that threads tension a little.

My thread keeps fraying And my stitch platt is fine


Is it fraying at the needle? AVOID using old or bargain bin thread. Could be the needle eye. It may have a burr/nick or the thread is too heavy for the needle eye. If you are sewing coarse fabric, try a needle with a larger scarf that will help protect the thread from shredding.

Keeping the thread in needle when you begin to sew


after threading the needle pull about 6" of thread out the back under the press foot
that way the thread is jammed under the foot and is held in place for the next thread
bobbin thread should also be out the back
when you have finished sewing then lift the foot and move the material sewed about 6"" away from the foot before cutting the threads

The thread cassette will push down but won't thread the needle


Threaders have to be right on target through the eye of the needle. You can look and see if the threading wire is to the left or right of the eye of the needle. Adjust the wire with a very small needle nose pliers. Remember, it is very fragile and can be broken by you or a repairman so don't blame yourself if this happens. The mechanism is mostly pushed upwards very hard to keep it in place. Check to be sure it hasn't started to come loose.

Top thread on my Brother Limited Edition 350 Sewing machine keeps breaking. Having used the automatic cutter, the thread pulls up and out of the needle when I want to start sewing again. Also the machine...


rethread the machine
try a top thread tension of 3 or 4
change the needle
always keep a thread tail of 3-5 inches on top & bobbin thread & keep the thread pulled back behind needle before starting to sew
always keep the bobbin area clean of lint & loose thread
& check under the needle plate for lint also
you might consider having the machine serviced, since you said it sounds like a tractor
some needle & thread are not compatable-try this

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

The top thread is fraying, and not stitching. I t...


If the top thread is being struck by the hook it will frey. Take the needle plate off thread the top of the machine, turn it as it would if you were to sew, there is a hook on the bobbin shuttle that will come around to pick up the top thread. that hook should pass a 1/16 or so above the eye of the needle. If that hook pass to soon, or to late it will strike the thread and split it. The needle needs to go all the way down and just begin it travel back up, this allows the thread to make a hoop for the hook to go through. You can adjust the timing by loosning the hold screws slitly and turning the shuttle to the correct spot, go in small movements.

Thread breaking on Simplicity Denim Star


Hi, when your thread breaks or frays right before in goes through the eye of the needle:
  1. Change your needle - after awhile, the eye can wear down and cause your thread to break or fray, eventhough it looks like the thread isn't even going through the needle. When you change your needle, make sure to install a needle that is compatible with the thread you are using (see below).
  2. If your thread still frays or breaks, make sure you've threaded your machine correctly. Most machines have a hook or bar right above the needle that your thread need to pass thru before you put the thread thru the eye of your needle. Sometimes that spot above the needle is really hard to get to, and sometimes the thread slips out. Always a good idea to double check. If you are still having problems, the needle you are using is probably the wrong size.
There are lots of needles on the market, and lots of threads. You need to make sure your needle is compatible with the thread you use for each project.

The most common needles are size 80 and 90 universal needles, which are fine for most sewing projects. But if you are using a specialty thread, you need to use a needle that is designed to work with that particular thread. For example, top stitching needles have a larger eye than a universal needle, because top stitching thread is thicker than sewing thread. The same is true for metallic thread - needles made for metallic thread an eye designed to allow the thread to pass thru without fraying. Further, if you using fine thread, you need a small needle.

FYI - unfortunately, thread sizes do not correspond directly with needle sizes. Small needle numbers indicate a needle with a small eye. But the smaller the thread size, the larger the thread. For example, size 50 thread is very fine and would usually be used with a size 70 needle. Size 30 thread is fairly thick and would probably be used with a size 90 top stitch needle.

Hope this helps, and remember, you should always change your needle after about 10 hours of sewing, no matter what size needle you are using. If you have more questions, please post again. Thanks, Ginny

I've lost my manual and video need threading info


One of the most common mistakes with overlockers is that the threads must always be threaded in order. So if you sew about 1 inch and the thread breaks try unthreading the eyes of the needles rethread the looper and then rethread the eyes of thew needles. If not you will get the same result of sewing about 1 inch and it will break again.
