Thread breakage on janome1600

How old is the thread? Old thread can lose its elasticity over time and dry out making it weak. Also, the thread should match the needle and the fabric or there may be tension or breakage. And try changing the needle...the smallest burr ( you may not see it) can fray and cut the thread as you sew. Make sure the bobbin thread and sewing thread match...two different thread don't always get along.

How do I start threading the overlocker

If it doesn't auto thread cut the thread of the old spools near the spool itself and knot the new spool of thread to the cut ends. When all 3 or 4 threads are knotted to the old ends then you slowly hit the pressed foot to feed the knotted ends through until you reach the needles. Then you cut the knots and hand thread through each needle or feeder bar.

Is the spool thread catching on something (like the little notch on the thread spool) or is wrapped around a thread guide? That will tend to break the thread.

Check that you are using the correct kind of needle to match the thread and fabric you are sewing. (Are you using good quality needles? Might try a different brand.)

All About Needles

Something else to consider is whether the thread is old or bargain bin variety. Try a different brand (preferably a better quality brand) of cotton thread. Threads have really improved over the past few years. If the thread is shredding at the needle eye or you see little fuzzies on the thread (similar to the old cotton-wrapped polyester threads of the 70's), it is not good quality and should be thrown away or used somewhere else.

Another thing to check is whether there is a rough spot on the needle plate or in the bobbin area that may be snagging the thread. Wrap your index finger in some very fine fabric (old pair of hosiery, chiffon, etc.) and rub your finger around and see if it snags anywhere.

Verify that the bobbin is loaded properly in the bobbin case.

The tension could be too tight. Remove the upper thread from the machine. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--confirm it is threaded correctly. Set the tension to the midway point between high & low numbers. Retest. The tension is correct when the upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

How to thread an old Montgomery Ward sewing machine model 30 ? e

Search the internet for your machine make & model & threading instructions. You may not find your exact machine, but a lot of similar machines will have the same threading sequence.

Just a hint: be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread so the tension disk will allow the thread to seat properly.

The thread keeps on breaking. I want to have the machine serviced. How often must it be done and where?

How old is your thread? Old thread will break fairly easy, also you want just enough drag to keep the thread from over feeding but not so tight it will brake thread

When this happened to me I was told the thread was old. Sure enough, it was old thread and now that I've replaced that old (20+ year) thread all is fine.

Trying to thread and thread keeps breaking when i try to use i, i am following the guide but cant figure out what i am doing wrong

Hi. Make sure you're not using old thread. Old thread, or thread that has been exposed to sunlight, gets weaker and is more likely to break. When I realized old thread was causing problems, it about broke my heart to throw it all out (I had spools of thread that my momma used.....wooden spools...but out it all went.)
Another thing that could cause your thread to break is if the top tension is too tight. You might try loosening it a bit and see if that helps.
Let me know if this helps, ok?
Happy Sewing!

Beeps several times and stops sewing.

I had the same problem. Through trial and error, I found the problem was with the thread tension. Usually the thread became wrapped around the spool holder as it was coming off the spool. As you continue to press the pedal, tension is created. When you release the pedal, some slack develops in the threading process and you are able to sew a few more stitches before the beeping starts again. If the thread is caught on the spool holder, simple re-thread the machine.That generally works for me. Also you can try to push to spool holder in as close as possible to the spool pin to alleviate any gaps. If the beeping continues to happen, place you thread in a cup behind the machine and thread as usual. You can also purchase an inexpensive thread holder. I made one out of a wood block and other odds and ends found around the house. Good Luck!
