I have a janome DC4030 the top thread keeps breaking on thicker materials,


Make sure the correct length of needle is used and installed correctly. Sometimes it moves slightly out of the holder without falling out but just enough to affect the needle eye position which can cause this kind of problem. For thicker materials use either ball point or denim needles. As last resort the top thread tension might be too tight. Adjust the top thread tension.

The top tread breaks after about 1inch when trying to do chain stich on my janome cover stich machine


Could be the result of several things. There could be some gunk or threads stuck in the tension disk. Be sure to remove the thread and rethread from the beginning in the order specified. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading!!!! If you haven't tried a brand new needle, do so, and make sure it is pushed all the way up and installed with the flat side facing the correct direction. Some machines recommend #90 as the largest needle to use. Also, perhaps the needle eye is too small to accommodate the thread. Watch where the thread is breaking to give you an idea of where the problem may originate. Try a different brand of thread. Sometimes black thread causes issues because the heavy dye affects the thread. Set the tensions at the midway point and then loosen the tension on that one needle. There could also be a burr or rough spot somewhere along the threadpath that is catching the thread. Last idea--could be a timing issue.

I have a Janome 1600P and the top thread keeos breaking


There are several common reasons for upper thread breakage.

Check that the needle/thread/fabric are compatible.
All About Needles

Remove the upper thread from the machine, install a brand new needle, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point.

My Janome 1600 keeps breaking threads


Is the tension too tight? Are the tension discs clean? Remove bobbin case, clean it and re-thread as this may be jammed.

Have a Janome 1600P-Top thread keeps breaking


The top 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

8. Try a different spool or cone of thread

My top thread frays and then breaks while I am quilting with my 1600p dbx.


change to a new needle
check to make sure thread has no knots or even change the thread spool
check the top thread tension it sound like it's to tight
check the needle plate for burrs
check around the tension knob for loose pieces of thread or lint
use a can of air that you'd use on a computer keyboard on the tension knob & if you don't have the can of air use unwaxed dental floss but make sure to write down the setting it was on before cleaning.
& also under the needle plate area in case there is loose threads or lint & also the bobbin area

Top sewing thread keeps breaking


generally, this is a threading problem, but don't rule out that you may have a weak thread.
try cleaning all the guides by cutting a thread at the cotton reel and pulling it towrds the needle, and double check the tension. i hope this helps
