Use a needle 1 size larger, fraying and splitting usually caused by the needle.

First, make sure that you are threading the machine properly check your manual for right thread path.
Secondly, make sure you are using an embroidery needle.

SOURCE: BabyLock Proline upper looper thread keeps breaking

I ended up switching the spools of thread around. Apparently, even though I had purchased good quality threads, one of the spools was wound in a way that made the thread loop and twist around. So I put the offending spool of thread through one of the needles and put the needle thread on the upper looper. That seems to be working. By the way, BabyLoc was very unhelpful dealing with this problem.  Thank you!

SOURCE: Babylock Ellure thread issues

I have the same machine and love it. Sometimes if the thread is old that will happen to me.  And also I spray the thread with static guard before i thread the machine in dry cold weather.  Since you said you are an embroiderer I assume you are using the same weight thread top and bottom. The other thing that causes that on my machine is if there is a nick on the spool of thread I am using and the thread catches just a little as it comes off the spool.  I use a fine nail file and smooth off the edge where the little v is to reattach the thread when you are finish using it.  I never use them. You do sew a little and cut off the tail off the top thread before you let it go through the rest of design. I hope you have found the solution but I learned these tricks while having the same problem as you.

SOURCE: Top thread keeps breaking on ESe2.

Many things can inter fear with the thread and cause it to break. A common problem is the thread getting wrapped around the top tension rollers on that machine. You can take off the "face cover" (side cover on the left) and look from the side and see if the 2 little rollers have thread wrapped around or underneath them. Start there.

The top threat keep on breaking

Possible causes:
  • Needle eye too small for thread used - then thread frays and breaks
  • Cheap thread used that easily frays - esp. when thread has unequal thickness
  • Needle eye too sharp
  • Component of the thread guide is not smoothly guiding the thread or is sharp
  • Upper thread tension (far) too large

How do I stop the machine breaking the top thread when I'm sewing?

There is either an error in the way it is threaded or the tension is set to high.

The top needle thread gets mangled,only way to fix is to pull all thread out and rethread the needle

Sounds like the thread is shredding and fraying. Make sure the needle is the correct size for the thread. Try a brand new needle. The other possibility is a possible burr or snag somewhere in the threadpath that is catching and fraying the thread. Another possibility is the fabric is coarse and rough and acts like sandpaper on the thread. AVOID old or bargain bin threads.

My brother pc700 the thread is fraying and some times it breaks

Make sure thread tails are at least 6" long when you put underneath your presser foot. Also, make sure you turn hand wheel toward you until metal take- up lever raises to highest position. Make sure needle inserted ALL THE WAY UP in needle bar goove and secure needle clamp. I M P O R T A N T: presser foot must be raised all the way UP before threading machine and pull thread TAUT when threading machine so thread can locate into the tension slots correctly. Thread still breaks? Please clean bobbin case and feed dogs for fuzz balls, lint, and anyoose broken threads! Hope this helps! If so, please give me rating for my free service. Happy sewing! Jimmy

When embroidering on my Duetta 4500D, thread frays and breaks.

Try another brand of thread - I have a problem with C&C and Sulky black fraying and use Maderia.

This may also happen with other dark colors that have gone through a longer dying process that tends to weaken the thread.

Thread companies have different dying procedures.

Also, check the thread spool for nicks that may be catching the thread and if it is turn the spool so the thread feeds from the opposite end of the spool.

Thread frays and breaks when sewing and embroidering.

Make sure that the machine is threaded correctly, that the needle is in properly, that the bobbin case and bobbin are both inserted correctly and that you are not using old thread.

Make sure that there is a new needle in the machine and loosen the top tension about a number

You need to carefully re-thread the machine.

Thread breaks when embroidering

Try changing threads. If you're not using embroidery thread specifically, the "treatments" they use on different threads can really cause problems.

Brother Embroidery machine thread keeps breaking

It doesn't matter so much the thickness of the stabilizer but more a matter of it being taut like a drum and the proper stabilizer for the fabric you're using. Couple of reasons the thread breaks...the thread gets caught on the edge of the spool in the crack where the thread originally starts, you're not using the right size spool cap or the upper thread is wrapping around the spool pin. When I use my 170 for embroidering I always use the vertical spool pin to eliminate this problem. Try it and let me know how you make out.
