SOURCE: Upper thread wraps around bobbin mechanism, while sewing

IT PROBABLY IS THREADED INCORRECTLY. GO SLOWLY BY THE DIAPHRAGM AND MAKE SURE IT IS THREADED CORRECTLY. ALSO MAKE SURE SPOOL PIN HOLDERS ARE IN PLACE THAT HELPS TO GUIDE THE THREAD CORRECTLY.

SOURCE: Machine is jamming

You need to remove the bobbin from the "race" by following the instructions in the manual. Give it a good clean and remove any bits of fluff and thread. Remove the upper thread also andmake sure that the tension wheel is clear of any broken threads and is on the correct setting. It may have been threaded wrong. The hand wheel not turning sounds like the bobbin area is jammed also.

SOURCE: top thread gets tangled in bobbin and won't pull up like

I'm new to sewing, and I had a similar problem where the top thread went all the way around the bobbin thingy and got stuck every time--solution: the bobbin case wasn't all the way in.  The arm had to go in a slot at the top and it sort of snapped in, then it worked fine.  Maybe it will help you!

SOURCE: I have a Singer Futura CE-150 and it keeps

Either upper thread is not passing through thread sensor area or sensor is broken.
Second possible reason is that if design is not optimized the sporadic speed change provides thread breakage error even if the thread is not broken physically. Make sure your software is updated to optimize it automatically (Futura main menu->Help->Live Update).

SOURCE: Singer Futura 350 bogus thread breaking error

I had the same problem for a LONG time. Yesterday I finally removed the top and the cover for the upper tension and found thread fragments under one of the discs. I removed it and used compressed air for dust clean out and it is working wonderfully. Good Luck

Why my thread keeps breaking near the feed dog


You don't mention which thread is breaking. Am assuming top thread.

Install a brand new needle (old needle may be damaged).
Use good quality thread or try changing the brand of thread you are using (some brands may work better than others).
Remove the upper thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify it is threaded correctly (consult the owner's manual).
Set the upper tension at the midway point between high & low numbers.
Verify the bobbin is inserted in the bobbin case properly and the bobbin case is threaded correctly.
Retest.

If thread is still breaking, there is a possible burr or nick somewhere that is catching the thread and breaking it. You can try wrapping your finger with an old piece of hosiery (or something similar) and rubbing around the needleplate, hook, shuttle. If it catches the fabric, then you know where the damage is. If it is a small blemish, you can sometimes buff it using very fine sanding paper or fine emery board to smooth it. (Be gentle and do not sand too much.) If the damage is large, perhaps it would be better to purchase a new part.

Just changed a broken needle, rethreaded everything but the threads in the top needles keep breaking


Remove all the thread. Loosen the upper tension as far as it can go and gently pull a length of UNwaxed thread or pearl cotton down through the tension disks to remove anything that may be stuck. Check that the needle has been installed facing the correct direction and that it has been inserted all the way up before the screw is tightened. Clean the bobbin area of any dirt, lint, or threads. RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. This allows the thread to seat properly. Re-thread from the beginning. Set the upper tension to the midpoint and test.

If it is still happening, then try installing a brand-new needle (the one you have may be damaged or defective). If the thread is shredding before it breaks, then there may be a needle compatibility issue.

The thread keeps cutting off as I am sewing, what I'm I doing wrongly.?


have you lubricated your machine and bobbin case area? have you checked thread tension on both upper and bobbin thread? Too tight at the top can cause the thread to break. Poorly lubricated or improperly seated bobbin case can also break threads. Also if your needle can be moved left or right, and it's set off-center that can break threads. Good luck.

Brother pc 8500 upper thread breaks


Check the spindle the thread is mounted on and see if it\'s wrapped around it. Sometimes thread will catch and wrap around the spool spindle and break.

Check thread guides to be sure there are no nicks that might be catching the thread or damaging it.



Replace the needle.. a burr in the eye can cause upper thread to break. Needles should be replaced often, modern fibres can be hard on them, they get dull and that\'s no help for anything either.



Make sure the thread spool is mounted on the spindle with the thread coming off as directed in the manual. Some machines only work when the thread feeds in the right direction from the spool.



It can also be a tension issue.. tight upper tension or tight bobbin tension. Bobbin tension may be adjustable manually, but it\'s pretty rare for it be a problem. Upper tension, I don\'t know. I\'ve yet to get into computer machines so am not familiar with how they set upper tension.



But the mechanism that produces the tension can wear out or break and need replacement.

The thread keeps breaking. Could the AUTO tensioner be the problem ?


here are some suggestions, hope they help
Upper thread breaks
1.needle may be in backwards
Correct needle insertion
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine or if using a round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
2.upper tension may be to tight--try 3 to 5
3.the needle may be bent or damaged--try rolling the needle on a flat surface to see if it's bent or not
4.thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
???
Lower thread breaks
The most probable cause of lower thread breaking is improperly wound bobbin
1.always start with a empty bobbin
Never wind one color over the other
2.choose thread that is identical in color & type as the one to be used for upper threading
3.wind the bobbin evenly across & in layers
4.don't wind the bobbin so full that it would be tight & hard to insert into bobbin case
5.bent bobbin--replace
6.lint built up in the bobbin case--frequent cleanings will eliminate this problem, the more often you use the sewing machine the more often it needs to be cleaned
7.thread catching on the bobbin spring or latch on bobbin case, check to see that the bobbin is inserted completely & correctly, & that you are using the right kind of bobbin .

for the top & bobbin thread keep thread tails of 3 to 6 inches long pulled behind the needle before you start sewing

yes,sometimes the thread will get caught on the spool, you might think about getting a extra holder that sets behind the machine to hold those spool's that the thread get caught on, that's what I did.

Thread keeps breaking, sounds like something keeps catching in the bobin area that causes the thread to break on top, skipping stiches also


You could possibly have some burs on the bobbin casing. This will cause threads to break. This is a repair that will have to be done by a professional. OR you could have place the bobbin in backwards. If the bobbin is not in correctly it will not have the right tension and the thread will break. And finally, make sure the upper threading is correct. The thread needs to go through all thread guides and the needle needs to be place in the machine with the grooved side facing you.
I hope this helps. If it does, please rate my suggestion!
