You can download a manual for $10 at www.sewingmanuals.com and it should help you. A couple of suggestions though, is your needle inserted correctly? Flat side facing the rear of the machine, fresh needle? Threaded correctly on top and bobbin area? Is your thread good not too old and the same type in bobbin and top? Did you leave a long enough tail in the bobbin thread? 3-4 inches which you hold with your left hand. Is the thread in the bobbin unwinding the right way? Are you turning the handwheel towards you, not away from you at least two revolutions or until you see the thread loop? Try these suggestions, and I am sure one will work unless your timing is off and it needs professional service.

I have a Quantum CXL Singer sewing machine and the thread keeps breaking. It will make about 3 stitches and breaks. It is breaking in the same place.


Make sure the thread coming off the spool is not wrapping around the spool spindle. Install a brand new needle. Remove ALL the thread from the machine. Clean bobbin area of any dust, lint, threads. Set upper tension to the midpoint. RAISE the presser foot and then totally re-thread the machine from beginning to end verifying the sequence is correct. Test.

So when I start sewing it works for a few seconds then my top thread breaks and or wraps its self around the black casing the bobbin sits in. What am I doing wrong?


Be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. This releases the tension disk so the thread can seat properly. If upper thread is breaking soon after beginning to sew, it usually is because the upper tension is too tight. Try loosening it and re-testing. The upper and lower threads should meet in the middle of the fabric.

Why does the bottom thread on my 185k Singer sewing machine keep tangling.


Your bottom thread looks like the top tension is too loose or not being fed through the tension disc.
1. While you thread do it with the pressure foot up. Make small pulls while threading to make sure there are no snags.
2. When you finish threading put the foot down. Check for resistance on the thread. There should be some; not excessive though.
3. Always start at four on tension and adjust as you need to.

I have error C7 on singer one plus and it wont sew at all?


I was getting a C7 error on my Singer Heritage sewing machine every time I pushed the pressure foot. I decided to see if the reverse sewing button would work and it did. Then I pushed the pressure foot to sew again and it worked. Hope this helps someone else.

Thread keeps breaking


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

I recently rec'd Singer Curvy 8770 as gift. Trying to use for first time and thread on underside of stitches is loose. Have tension on top dial as far as 9. I hve been sewing for forty+ yrs.


Try this, totally rethread with the presser foot up, then pull the top thread, it should move smoothly, then lower the presser foot, now pull the thread, it should barely move. This seats the thread in the tension discs.
