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.

My Pfaff hobby 1200 keeps breaking the thread while free motion quilting.


I'd try switching the needle type & size and then a different brand of thread.

Oh, yeh, one more thing I just thought of: Rethread the top thread and make sure the thread is not hanging up on the spool, spool pin, or wrapped around a thread guide. When my thread breaks after 3-4 inches, it's usually because something is stopping the top thread.

Futura quartet keeps shredding the top thread, help?


AVOID old or bargain bin thread--use only fresh, good quality thread. Try a brand new needle, perhaps switch to a top-stitch needle. Change to a different brand of thread. Check to make sure the top thread follows the correct threadpath and that no guides have been skipped or threaded out of order. Check that the top tension is not set too tight.

I have an Esante ESe2 and am having trouble with the upper thread breaking. I have checked bobbin case for fuzz and thread, re-wound the bobbin, re-threaded everything and nothing helps! Please help me...


Open the top part of the machine. My mom just bought one and it had lots of thread inthe thread path of the thread on top. You have to open up the area that the thread runs thru. It solved her problem of thread breaking. She found lots of thread inside.
