Make sure that the tension is not too high. Also I recommend a high quality thread if you're using cotton. Signature cotton thread works great. Jukis tend to break lower quality cottons because of their speed, but they can handle lower quality polyester threads.

My top thread keeps breaking~ I have been using this machine for some time and this is the first I have experienced this! am pretty confident I am threading it correctly!


Depends how/when it is breaking? After sewing an inch or two? Is it shredding and then breaking?

Clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area.
Install a brand new needle.
Remove the top thread from the machine. (Sometimes removing the thread will reveal the problem.)
Try a different thread (AVOID old or bargain bin thread).
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Set the top tension at the midway point.
If it continues to break, then there may be a burr on the needle plate or in the bobbin area that is snagging the thread.

First Thread breaks on nelco 928 why?


Remove all the threads.
Replace the needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify each thread is in the correct thread path.
ALWAYS THREAD each in the order specified or you will continue to have problems--for a lot of machines, the order is Upper Looper, Lower Looper, then needles.
Check the tension on that particular thread--too tight, it will break.

Breaking thread after about an inch usually indicates it is mis-threaded--a guide has been skipped or threaded out of order or the thread may be wrapped around something.

My Elnita 245i is squeaking when it goes forward, but not in reverse. Ive oiled inside the needle mechanism and bobbin case areas. No change. It is also breaking top thread after 6 inches


..

If your machine is mechanical (not computerized), it could very well benefit from a good cleaning and oiling, including the internal mechanical movement. Squeaking could be the feed dogs but could be a multitude of places.

When threading the machine, be sure to ALWAYS raise the presser foot. The fact that the top thread is breaking about 6 inches into the sewing indicates that the thread is catching somewhere. Sometimes, it catches on the thread notch on the thread spool. Other possibilities is that the thread is looped around something, ie the spool pin, a thread guide... Remove the thread entirely from the machine and rethread from the beginning.

Top thread breaking


I would try loosening the tension a little. Is it real cheap thread? Sometimes that will give you a problem. I would look into the owners manual for more suggestions.

I have a janome 1600P, it will not sew without either the top thread breaking or the bobin thread breaking. It will sew for about a quarter of an inch and then the thread breaks, I have changed the bo


My experiences with thread breaking with machine on a quilting frame make me look at the upper tension being set too high, the needle being worn or movement of the machine is too fast. Reduce the upper tension first, then sew in straight lines at first. See if you can sew slowly, in straight lines and reduce the upper tension until the thread stops breaking. If so, try some 1-2 inch circles, again going slowly. If the needle thread is pulling to the back, you will need to increase the upper tension again until the stitches meet in the middle of the fabric. If you can't locate a balanced spot where the needle thread is not pulling to the back side and thread doesn't break, try taking the machine off of the frame and sewing on a table. If it won't sew this way, it needs some professional help. If it does, you will probably save a lot of time taking it in for service, making sure to explain to the repair center that you have problems on a quilting frame, not while sewing normally. When the machine is adjusted to sew normally on a table and you move it to the frame, you will probably need to reduce the tension by 1-2 complete turns of the tension knob.

Why does my top thread break after about 2 inches when sewing


Hello. The tension needs to be adjusted. When the top thread breaks, often the top thread breaks when the top tension is too tight. Go to this link to learn more. http://www.ca.uky.edu/HES/fcs/FACTSHTS/CT-MMB-213.pdf

Breaking threads... you so about an inch and it


It sound like it is not threaded properly or the tension is too tight, You should be able to pull on the thread manually without breaking it

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.
