Question about Toyota STF17 Sewing Machine
The upper thread on my machine continually unhooks inside the cover causing the thread to be dragged into the bobbin housing then breaking and jamming. It appears that when the needle goes down, the thread billows inside the cover causing it to come unhooked. The only way to stop this from happening is to operate the machine without the end cover (over the light). I have had my machine for 3 or 4 years and it has always done this.

SOURCE: HI I have a new
For some reason the bobbin thread must be too hard to pull for the needle to pick it up.Take the bobbin out of the bobbin case and clean the bobbin case thoroughly. Thread and lint may be built up keeping the bobbin holder from turning.
Old the bobbin holder in one hand and pull some thread off the bobbin. You should feel a slight resistance but the thread should pull out fairly easily. If you feel too much tension, remove the bobbin and clean the bobbin holder thoroughly
If this does not resolve your problem, there may be some other mechanical failure.
the you will need to have it serviced.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

This usually indicates that there is an issue in the bobbin house. Either there is dust or the bobbin case is not working properly. Different bobbin sizes, such as prefilled plastic bobbins can also cause a hassle. try oiling the bobbin house and air blowing it clean. If you have any further questions please message me back.

sometimes the needle plate gets a burr on it which will break the thread when sewing. Usually 2 screws hold the needle plate on and remove those and pull the needle plate off. Take a close look at the hole that the needle travels into and see if its a little rough on both side. If so you can use a file on it to smooth it back down.
