I DO NOT HAVE A MANUAL FOR 8708. I ALSO AM HAVING TROUBLE WITH THE UPPER THREAD,( PROPER THREADING NEEDED,) IT KEEPS BREAKING, PLEASE HELP. VINCENT


The manual may help (assuming this is your machine):

Crofton MD 8708 Instruction Manual

The thread will break if the machine is threaded incorrectly. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread. Also, set the upper tension to the midway point. This is the standard setting for machines although there may need to be some tweaking to get the tension where you want it.

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:

Thread keeps breaking


Here are a few sites that may be helpful in diagnosing your problem:

NUMBER ONE SUGGESTION--install a brand new needle. Sewists are known to be very frugal about changing needles but it is usually the easiest and least expensive fix for a lot of problems.
Remove all the thread from your machine, clean the bobbin area of any lint, threads, etc. Be sure that you RAISE the presser foot BEFORE you thread the upper thread. This releases the tension disks so the thread will seat properly. Now, re-thread from the beginning verifying you are following the correct threading sequence (consult your manual).

The standard factory tension setting is the midpoint, ie of the range is 1-10, set the tension at 5 and then adjust from there.
