Question about Sewing Machines
I have tried different threads, needles, fabric and different tensions. Is there another thing that would fix it?
There are several reasons to this. First, your top thread is not at equal/adequate tension and may be routed improperly. Second, your bottom thread has very little tension due to either improper shuttle adjustment and/or missing screw at the tension plate. Additionally it could be caused by excessive accumulation of fluff, which prevents tension mechanism from doing its job. In summary I suggest checking top and bottom threads for proper routing and tension in accordance with machine manufacturer's specs. I am almost positive that you will find a problem there. Good luck and report back if needed.

1. Check bobbin tension. Hang the bobbin carrier with the bobbin threaded behind the tension plate. Rotating counterclockwise. Bob it from your finger and adjust the tension until it extends one inch. Some of the bobbin carriers you will have to play with because this type of adjustment you can't do.
2. Thread the top. Place the tension on 3. Now, turn the hand wheel towards you until the thread comes up from the bobbin.
3. Try sewing a short seem. If the bottom is lose you need to tighten the top. If the bottom is tight then loosen the top.
4. The basis of this is the same as a tug of war. The knot will be in the center of the fabric when you have the bottom and top pressure the same.

The tread only breaks in the needle. what can i do . i don't get to sew anything . I tread the needle and get everything ready and start the machine and as quickly as that the tread is broken and the machine has not sewn at all.

on this condition,you can avoid wasting time and material try on this, the problem is your set up of tension thats why.,but you should follow upper theading. see figure,this just sample of exact threading,next bobbins set up see fig.the thread should be clockwise rotation on winderfollow this set up,and upon inserting be sure
you have clean feed dogs and shuttle race free from fabrics and threads chips.set dial tension to #3 to #4 and stitch dial to #12.then try this set.and you can watch on you tube sewing. try this stuff on internet address type www.youtube.com then on search box type sewing machine,have enjoy and have a nice day.don't forget to rate me,

SOURCE: looping underneath
I watched a 'You Tube' demo that showed ........if you loosen or tighten the very small screw at the base of the bobbin this gives you the correct tension & stops the looping under the fabric........I didn't even know this screw existed ! It is trial & era at first re the correct tension but you do get there.... the art is to do it in small mini stages.....like you hardly move it ! Thanks to 'You Tube' I can now get on and finish my drapes !

This is a tension adjustment problem. It's good to use two different colors of thread, like you did. From your description, the top thread (needle thread) tension needs to be tighter. As you tighten the tension of the top thread, you'll see that the top thread pulls the bobbin thread up into the fabric so it's no longer laying loose on the bottom of the fabric.
You'll need to have the pressure foot down when you tighten the tension. Tighten it a little, sew a practice seam, check to see what the stitch looks like. Tighten it a little more, sew, check, etc etc--until both top and bottom look the same--you shouldn't see much (if any) of the bobbin thread color on top of the fabric or the top thread color on the underside.
Let me know how this works for you, ok?
