Have you tried re-threading the machine, sometimes the thread can slip off the check spring for needle thread and cause a thread break message.

if you have re-threaded and cleaned the bobbin area (preferrably with compressed air) then most likely the thread break sensor is damaged and will require a tech to repair.

goodluck

Top thread keeps breaking and I do not think it is a bobbin issue. Thread seems to be getting snagged up in one of the upper threading spots. It has been professionally serviced many times.


Remove the top thread from the machine.

Install a brand new needle and confirm that the needle is correct for the thread and fabric you are sewing.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Set the top tension to the midway point. Verify the thread path is correct.

When the presser foot is raised, the thread should pull through with very little resistance. Once the presser foot is lowered, the tension is activated and the thread should not pull through.

It could be the thread is catching a notch or groove. I have a machine that the thread has worn a sharp groove in the finish. I covered it with tape. Fixed.

Where are the oiling points and what would make the threads constantly break


Depends on your make & model machine. Newer computerized machines require little or no oiling. Consult your owner's manual AND use only good quality sewing machine oil.

After threading the machine, start to sew and the thread breaks it seems that it gets caught in step 4 in Threading The Machine in the manual.


Not knowing the make & model of the machine limits out ability to help. What is Step 4? When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot. Verify that the thread path is correct--mis-threading is a frequent cause of broken thread.

Why the thread cracked with when i sticked with the machine


Thread breakage could occur for several reasons.

First, try a brand new needle.

Second, use only good quality thread--NOT old thread or bargain bin varieties.

Third, when threading the upper thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot throughout the threading process.

Verify that the thread path is correct (consult the owner's manual). Incorrect threading will usually break the thread.

Check that the upper thread tension is set at the midway point between the high & low numbers.

Upper thread keeps braking


Usually thread breakage is a result of incorrect threading or the thread tension set too tight.

Install a brand new needle.

Remove the upper thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning (verify the threading sequence is correct).

Check that the tension is set at the midway point between the high and low numbers.

Retest. If still breaking, there are other less common problems (thread/needle incompatibility, burrs or knicks catching the thread, etc) that may be the cause. Check the following web sites:

My needle threads keep on breaking, I don't know what to do


  • Check the tension of the upper thread. If it's too tight, the pressure on the thread will cause it to break.
  • Check the thread you are using. If you're using two different kinds (one on top and one in the bobbin) that difference can cause the threads to break.
  • Are you using the proper thread for the job? Using a thin or light thread for sewing heavy fabric can lead to breakage.
  • Are you using the correct needle? Sewing knits with a sharp needle or sewing woven fabrics with a knit or ballpoint needle can also cause the thread to snap.
  • Is your machine threaded correctly? Incorrect threading can be another cause for thread breakage.
I hope this helps.

I am trying to do letter embroidery on my Futura 350 and I keep getting constant error messages about thread breaking even when there is no visible sign of that. Also, the bobbin thread side is bunching...


Check out your threading with "Machine setup" Tutorial under Help submenu and whether the thread tension control on the front panel is set to "E".

P.S. The error message about thread breakage appears not only when the thread is really broken but if the sewing speed is not changing smoothly (for example if design is not optimised).
