Check threading is correct. If it is, check the tension. Sometimes it easy to misthread the upper thread tensioner. Also using a large spool that takes too much to spin it can have too much inertia and cause thread to break.

SOURCE: treading the machine

all machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT.

SOURCE: no instructions how do you tread the machine?

Just go to this site: They have threading guides for free. They are the main importers for Necchi in the USA (from what I understand anyway).

When the needle is not pulling the bottom tread

is this the first time you use a sewing machine? if you are very familiar with the way the thread is pulled out of the bottom spool, I'd say you need a technician, here is how to install bottom spool in case you don't know. after filling spool, pull thread out through the small gap on the side of the spool holder, then holding the small arm on the holder outward insert the spool holder in to the socket and release after fully inserted. after that the thread should come out the top by manually turning the machine to lower needle

Frequently Asked Questions

Q) Help!
I am breaking a lot of needles and the tension is getting too tight on its own while stitching and causing the thread to break. I am learning the machine for two weeks. Is it so sensitive too wools, cottons, and fleece that this would make such a major difference in the stitching - breaking needles, breaking thread?

(A) It may not be tension that is causing the problem with your portable blindstitch. If you have broken needles it has probably left some needle burrs in the thread and needle path that need polishing off with fine emory cloth (crocus) before sewing again.

Start with a new LWx6T needle without thread or fabric. Watch the needle as you turn the hand wheel. If there is needle deflection, reduce the penetration dial until there is no needle movement. If there is needle deflection caused by burrs, they must be polished off. Check the looper tip and two arms for any needle burrs and polish off. If there is needle deflection caused by the needle track lifting the needle, lower the track very slightly with the screws on the side of the black metal bracket above the needle.

Finally, Back off on the tension dial and retighten while you are sewing with a light strong thread and light to medium weight fabric, until you get the correct tension without loops. If tension is too tight it will push the thread up so it is not all the way down between the tension discs where it belongs.

(Q) I can't understand how to finish off at the end. It
always unravels. I have read the manual and it seems simple but I
apparently just "don't get it." Any help would be appreciated.

(A) At the end of the blindhem seam, position the needle all the way to the left, then use the knee lift to remove the fabric and jerk on the fabric at the same time. That will tie off the tread and break the thread at the
needle without bending the needle. You can weave the thread tail back into the stitches or cut it off. Before the above procedure, you could also turn the handwheel counterclockwise for a few stitches, then come back to the end of the seam and repeat the first procedure above.

Tacsew t111-155 sewing machine skipping stitches after rethreading and changing needle

I don't have firsthand knowledge of this machine, but the machines I've used would do this when the thread tension was too high. Check the thread path for any dirt or buildup of fuzz from the thread. Also, check to make sure the thread tension adjustment isn't set too tight. Gently tugging on each thread one at a time may reveal which thread is binding and make your search more efficient. I hope this helps.

Tacsew T500 : Needle continually comes unthreaded

No this machine does not use a bobbin. I just purchased one too and called the supplier to help me keep mine threaded. He said they do not take much tension at all. So check your tension and then when threading it, make sure your thread goes under the bar in the center of the tension disk, not on top of.
Good luck, once you get it going it does a beautiful job!!!! Love it, Love it!
