SOURCE: Babylock seger machine keep breaking the left side needle.

Try rethreading the machine, and make sure the thread is not wrapped around anything. Then check the tension for the needles. Run a few inches of chainstich off slowly, while watching the thread and loopers make the loops over the finger. Your threads may be in the wrong position, or underneath the wrong parts to start.

Why does the thread on my sewing machine keep breaking?


Several possibilities. It could be the needle, the tension too tight, mis-threading, the thread weight, brand, poor quality, or fabric incompatibility with needle & thread.

How do i change double needles on janome mylock


Don't know the model of your machine but this manual, or one specifically for your machine, may be helpful:

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0ahUKEwio3tC-1p7PAhXm5oMKHed8DIMQFggeMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fjanome.com%2Fsiteassets%2Fsupport%2Fmanuals%2Fsergers%2Finst-book-634d.pdf&usg=AFQjCNFFa0YXjvhgmGspP4BP7E6p_z59bA&cad=rja

FWIW, overlockers do not take double needles. There are usually at least two needles each installed separately. If you try using a double needle, you will most likely break them and possibly damage you machine.

Why does the right needle keep breaking in myloc 634d


I agree with John Smeed It could be that the needle is bent or in the wrong way if it keeps on breaking it must be hitting the throat plate or it's timing may be out( a pro job) Also check the needle is in as high as it can go.

I have a Juki DDL 227. Top thread keeps breaking instantly


Well, you've not checked "Everything" but you have checked the common things.

Do you have any idea of where it is actually breaking? Re-thread your machine and see if you can determine exactly where the break occurs.

Sometimes a damaged needle throat plate will break threads... as will a burr on the hook in the bobbin area. Also if there is a burr or rough spot on the thread spool it will sometimes catch and cause breakage.

Good luck

THE DISNEY PICTURES EMBROIDERED SEEM OUT OF LINE WHY IS THIS & IT KEEPS BREAKING NEEDLES ITS A BROTHER PE-180D EMBROIDERY MACHINE CAN ANYONE HELP ME????


Use cut away stabilizer and if you are already doing this, double the layer.

The needles may be breaking because they are too small or not installed correctly.

Try a size 14 machine embroidery needle and check the manual to see if this is with the flat side of the needle to the back of the machine.

One other thing could be that the timing needs to be adjusted. You can find information on how to set the timing at sewusa.com or take the machine to a professional for service - always take an example when the machine has been mis-stitching.

The needle thread on my bernina minimatic keeps breaking.


There is special thread for denim/jeans. It usually comes in shades of brown. It's a little heavier and might help with the breakage. You might also want to try a little less tension. I assume you already have a Schmetz denim needle?
