And second problem is It keeps jamming when sewing little And thread keeps cutting too out of needle Sew empty stitching


If thread is breaking at the needle, change the needle. It could be damaged and snagging the thread. However, if there is a burr in the needle plate, that could be catching and breaking the thread. Try different thread. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading. Verify the thread path is correct and that each thread is seated completely in the tension disk. The tension may be too tight.

My sewing machine needle (very new one) keeps jamming every couple of turns of the needle - and the thread is very loose and loopy on the fabric. It makes a jarring noise


not quite sure how needle is jamming. I have had them break, had thread ball up underneath and caused needle to jam. Question is the needle in the right way, ie the flat side in as per manual, generally the flat side faces away from you. Sounds like your tension is not quite right if the thread is looping. Loops on bottom, bobbin tension, on top sewing machine tension

Always thread breaks


try these suggestions
The needle thread breaks
1. the needle thread is not threaded properly
2. The needle thread tension is to tight
3. The needle is bent or blunt
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted
5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew
6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing
7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

try changing the needle--normally flat side goes to the back of the machine

make sure the bobbin is turned the right way & inserted correctly in the bobbin case
make sure that the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for loose thread & lint

Whenever I sew the top thread breaks. The machine seems to sew but then jams when I take the material off the top theard is all cut on the underside of the fabric and the bobbin thread is just there. ...


to see if a needle & thread are compatable, take a strand of the thread your going to use & the needle your going to sew with & put the thread thru the eye of the needle & hold it at a 90 degree angle & see if the needle goes down the thread easily

check the needle plate to see if there's any burrs or sharp edges & the bobbin case also

make sure the top thread does not come off the thread take up lever,cause that can make it jam also

it also possible that the machine could be out of time & would need to be serviced at a repair shop

Sew Cute SC20 Mechanical Sewing Machine: how to thread sew cute machine ...


Place the origin bobbin thread so the thread is coming up (clockwise) extend to the thread tention, to the top thread holder, then down through the arm and then through the bottom thread holder, through the square thread guide above the needle, then through the needle, front to back. Check out a picture on ebay or amazon. That could help you visualize it.
If you are having trouble with the thread breaking, try changing the thread on the bobbins. The thread that comes with the machine is poor quality and jams & breaks. If you still have trouble, and might suspect the needle is dull or bent. Change it, it makes a difference. I had the thread problem with the machine right out of the box. Changed it and it works great!

I can start working withmy baby lock, the needle brokes verytime i runthe machine , and i can not sew


If this machine has a needle position adjustment and it is on the center position -

and you are sewing a zig-zag stitch and using a presser foot with a narrow opening this could break the needle

and the needle plate is a single hole, this will break the needle.

and you are sewing a straight stitch with a new needle and it breaks, the machine needs to go in for servicing.

W3300 hook and needle


I had many broken needles before I put my thread on a thread stand behind my machine. I found that the thread was winding around the thread post and causing a jam and thus, breaking my needles. This solution worked!

Needle jams and breaks off


Needle jams....Thread is caught in the hook...solution...Remove the upper thread and bobbin case,turn the handwheel backwards and forwards by hand and remove the thread remands.

Needles breaks
1. Needles is damaged..Insert new needle
2. The needle is not correctly inserted....insert flat side towards the back
3. Wrong needle size for the fabric...Choose a needle to suit the thread and fabric.
