Needle breaking-CE 250

When I attempt to embroider the needle will often hit the presser foot attachment...I have taken off the presser foot and put it back on multiple times, but the needle continues to sew right at the back of the presser foot's square--should it be in the middle?? I have finished only one embroidery design and have gone throught 5 needles........HELP PLEASE!!

Re: needle breaking-CE 250

I had that same problem and it was due to the thread being too tight. Put the thread net on your thread and it should be ok.

Why do needles keep breaking?

Just guessing here. Is the needle hitting the presser foot? If so, it could be the wrong presser foot for your machine (especially if it is not attaching properly), could be the wrong needle for the machine or is installed incorrectly, could be the needle bar is not centered, or the needle position setting could be off to one side or the other rather than in the middle. Hard to diagnose without more information.

How can I attach a zipper foot to my unidentified machine?

Assuming you have the correct zipper foot attachment for your machine, you should be able to attach it like any other presser foot. On some machines, you may need to adjust the needle position to the right or left so the needle will not hit the presser foot when stitching.

Singer futura xl400 embroidery needle keeps breaking

The problem is being caused because the thickness of the material is not allowing the embroidery foot to land squarely on the fabric. The needle is then close to the back of the foot, and when a jump stitch is encountered, the needle hits the back of the foot and breaks. We used to suggest that people take a small wad of something and stick it under the presser foot lifter to raise it a little--not enough to trigger the sensor, but enough to raise the foot. However, that\'s difficult to do and keep in place on an XL machine.

However, a much better solution is to simply switch to a darning foot. Both can be used for embroidery, but the darning foot is spring loaded and starts out flat. Plus, it\'s much easier to get on, and much easier to get past the rim of the hoop when you\'re putting the hoop on.

One comes with your machine, but if it didn\'t, I have purchased several from eBay. They are VERY inexpensive, and my personal preference is one with a closed large round metal ring at the bottom. All Futuras, including yours, take a low-shank foot. They are very used by many machines and therefore very commonly available. I think you\'ll be very pleased with the results!

Bernina Artista 640 - While embroidering, the sewing needle hit a pin and broke. Now that I have replaced the needle, the alignment is off. The needle point comes down onto the embroidery presser foot.

This will probably need to be handled by a professional. With this particular Bernina, you might be able to adjust the needle position so that it is slightly off center and will not hit the presser foot. That would be a temporary fix, however. If you want to be able to thoroughly enjoy your sewing time, you will be happier if you take it to a certified Bernina repair site and let them adjust the needle position.

When I turn my machine on the presser foot does

This does not sound good, you may have a failure in the eletronics. However it could be a loose connection inside the machine too. I think you need to see a service tech.

Sounds like your tension is too tight and the thread is pulling your needle. Also, make your that you needle position button is on center. If it is on left or right it will cause your needle to snap.

Needle hits the plate that is over the bobbin.

If possible hoop the item. I have found that any item that has any thickness causes the presser foot to be pushed forward and the needle hits it and breaks. If you can press the item to lessen the thickness this may help. I spoke to Singer (I am a Singer dealer) and they did not have any help for this other than to recommend that the owner cut out the back of the foot. I don't think that would be a solution as it would be difficult to cut out the back of the foot and still have smooth edges, also it would cause the foot to be weak and possible break or bend. Good Luck

How to put on presser foot "p" to embroider

Not shure you can embroider on an MC4000, i think this is only a sewingmachine.

But to change presser fot:

If it a "snap on" foot, when foot lifted, press the "button" on the back of the needle bar (on the bottom) this would release the presser foot.

If is a large foot, you have to unscrew the screw on the left side of the needlebar, and change the whole foot.
