Assure the needle is threaded correctly.

Either its not properly threaded when you start to sew

OR the bobbin isn't correctly installed causing it not to catch the thread when sewing.

OR (possibly just with old machines) the tensioning needs to be adjusted.

It is difficult to say without seeing.
Hope this helps at least some. Good Luck!

try changing the needle--make sure it's the right needle for the
fabric being sewed
rethread the machine top and bobbin
make sure the bobbin is inserted into the bobbin case
it's also possible that the machine could have a timing problem
and needs to be checked

Machine breaks needles
1.make sure you are using the right needle for your type of sewing machine.
Most machines can use generic Schmetz needles. There are cases where the machine will only use ones specified in the owners manual.
2.the presser foot may not be installed properly
3.use the correct needle for the type of fabric you are working with. To fine of needle on heavy fabric or to course a needle on silk or jersey can damage fabric.
4.let the feed dogs guide the fabric & the feed dogs will work with the presser foot .
5.the needle is not all the way in -push all the way up against the stop

also make sure to use the right tension for what your sewing
also clean under the needle plate & bobbin area for lint or loose threads

if these suggestions don't work & stop the needle breaking then it may be neccessary to have the machine serviced

I have a sewing machine-single needle model 03914, but I don't how to put the needle for delicate fabric and for thick fabric?


Use size 60 for very fine (chiffon), size 70 for light weights like voile and cotton, 80 or 90 for medium weights such as a broadcloth, size 100 for denim and size 110 for something very heavy like a thick curtain or upholstery weight fabric. If you aren't sure what size to use, try pushing a needle into the fabric you are going to sew with your fingers, if it goes in easily and the hole it leaves is not noticeable then it is okay, if it leaves a big hole, then go down a size. If you use a needle that is too small on a fabric, then it is going to go blunt quickly or break.

good info here http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/ig/Sewing-Machine-Needles/Needle-Sizes.--94.htm on needle sizes.

Skipping stitches and upper thread breaking on JCPenney 6600


Hello,
Here are a few things to try.

* Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this feature.

* When you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting caught in your machine.

* Your fabric may require a different needle. Generally, heavier fabrics require larger needles and thinner fabrics, smaller needles. You may also need a larger needle if you're sewing through many layers of fabric. And make sure to use a ballpoint needle for knit fabrics and a sharp needle for woven (or a universal needle for either). And make sure your needle is appropriate for the type of thread you're using.

* Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot, it may be too light for your fabric.

* If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for both. And use a good quality, brand name thread.

* Change your needle plate. Try switching to a needle plate with a smaller hole (a straight stitch needle plate).

Important Note: If you change your needle plate, check to make sure your needle aligns perfectly with this smaller hole before starting to sew. A misaligned needle could hit the plate and break, which could be dangerous. And make sure to change your needle plate back for zigzag and other wide stitches.

I hope this helps.

I have broken 2 needles and now the new needle (foot) will not move up and down. i have double checked all settings and nothing has helped. any suggestions


Hello,
Here are several solutions for you to try.

* Your broken needle may have been too thin for your fabric. Make sure your replacement needle
is appropriate for the weight and type of your fabric and thread. You may also need a thicker needle if you’re sewing through bulky layers of fabric. When you insert your new needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly (usually with the flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your manual), that it goes all the way into the holder, and that the screw is securely tightened.


If there doesn’t seem to be a problem with your needle, try the following:

* Check your pressure foot to make sure it’s attached securely.

* Change your pressure foot. Your pressure foot may be bent, causing your needle to hit it.

* Don’t sew over pins. A needle that hits a pin can break. Always remove the pins from your fabric before they reach your needle.

* Don’t pull your fabric as you sew. You could be bending your needle back, causing it to hit your needle plate instead of going into the hole. Just guide your fabric, letting it feed on its own.

* Check your needle plate to make sure it's securely in position.

* Change your needle plate. If you’ve been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.

* Check the position of your needle. Sewing machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle, right,left, or center. If your needle is not positioned correctly, it may be hitting your needle plate or pressure foot.


I hope this helps.

Hello,

- Reinsert your needle and make sure it goes all the way into the holder and that it’s positioned correctly – usually with the flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your machine’s manual to be sure.

- Change your needle, it may be blunt, bent, or otherwise damaged.

- Adjust your thread tension, It may be too tight or too loose.

- Change your needle plate. Try switching to a needle plate with a smaller hole (a straight stitch needle plate).
