Refer to the maintenance section of the manual for your machine. If you do not have a manual, check at the Singer Company website for a download.

Raise the needle to it's highest position and remove the bobbin case. Cleaning away any lint or thread that may have accumulated in this area.

If the machine requires oiling (only if this is indicated as part of the maintenance), use sewing machine oil only.

Replace the bobbin case - making sure the needle is at it's highest position for proper positioning of the shuttle.

Refer to the manual for threading the machine - make sure the foot is always up when doing this.

Check the bobbin to be sure the thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guides on the bobbin case.

Thread keeps breaking


Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint

Bobbin thread breaks

1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly

2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder

3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly

4. Lower thread tension is two tight

Is there any other thing I can do to stop the thread from the upper looper from breaking after about 30cms of sewing. there is no sign of it being about to break. I have changed thread, needles and...


it could be due to one or more of the following

  • Threading is not correct.
check that bobin is not snagging thread,
remove bobin and remove any dust and fluff from bobin area
  • Needle is wrong size.
  • Needle has been inserted wrong.
  • Needle and thread does not match.
  • Starting to stitch too fast.
  • Thread take-up lever has not been threaded.
  • Correctly thread machine.
  • Replace needle with correct size.
  • Properly insert needle.
  • Start machine at a medium speed.
  • Check threading order.

I hope this was helpful

I am a sewer so I can explain to you what to do you lift it up your needle might break. If so you twist the thing and take it out. Then peplace it with the other needle that fixes it.
