Why does my thread keep breaking on my brother ce4000?

Change the thread in the bobbin and then try...then change the top thread only and try...helps to see where the problem could be...change the needle again and get it from a different pack. Sometimes needles from the same pack can have the same problem( burrs, nicks, filings, etc...) that are impossible to see with the ***** eye. Oh and buy brand new thread...we tend to think that all thread is good to use and it is NOT. Old thread looses elasticity, frays, and breaks constantly. It may 'look' good, but is a sewists greatest enemy!! Good luck!

My serger is still not working properly trhread still breaking lower and upper

Generally, thread breakage is due to incorrect threading, threaded out of order, tension too tight, or the threads are looping or hanging up on their way through the thread path. Be sure to remove ALL the threads from the machine and RAISE the presser foot while threading. Give each thread an extra little tug when going through the thread tensioners to make sure they are seated all the way. Consult the owner's manual to verify the thread paths are correct and the threads are threaded in the specified order. (If not threaded in the proper order, the serger will most likely never work satisfactorily.) Perhaps changing thread brands will help--and avoid old or bargain bin threads. Set the tension guides to the midway point between high & low numbers before testing.

If there continue to be issues, the timing may be off or a looper may be bent. Take it for service.

Why does lower looper thread keep breaking?

Usually, thread breakage is due to incorrect threading. When a thread breaks or becomes unthreaded, the best policy is to remove all the thread and rethread from the beginning. Be sure to RAISE the presser foot before threading to allow the thread to seat properly in the tension disk. Also, be sure to thread each in the order specified in the manual or it is unlikely your machine will ever function properly.

How can I get the monogram to work properly?

On my sewing machine that would be an indicator of misadjusted thread tension. Changing thread type or diameter generally requires tension adjustment. In this particular case, I\'d increase the bobbin tension a bit (if I understand your description correctly, the bobbin thread forms loose hoops), and back off on the upper (spool) tension (pulls too hard on the thread). On one or two of my bobbin cases, I had problems with the tensioner screw working loose during use. I put a dab of nail polish on the screw head to stick it to the bobbin case. Problem solved.

I\'m not familiar with your particular machine, but I don\'t see why you can\'t make the character any size above the minimum (which would be the smallest readable character that can be made with the stitch length and type used).

Embroidery not working correctly

Well, before I did all that (which may be necessary), I would take a piece of UNWAXED dental floss or hand embroidery floss and floss between the tension disks. You mentioned that you were suddenly breaking threads; there may be lint or loose threads or both seated between the disks, preventing the thread from seating properly. Then,
I would take the embroidery unit off and try to do some sewing with it, to see what results I got. If you can catch and bring the bobbin thread to the top with the top thread, I am doubtful that your timing is off. Sew a line of both straight stitch and zigzag stitches, and see if the stitches are balanced. If not, you may have a bobbin tension issue, and if so, most bobbin cases can be adjusted.

I think you'll find, though, that things will improve considerably when you have cleaned out the upper thread path and tension disks. Make sure when you do that, that your foot is raised, so that the disks are spread. Oh, a drop of sewing machine oil wouldn't hurt either--generally you should put a drop of oil for every 5 hours of embroidery.

Top thread keeps breaking. Adjusting the tension does absolutely nothing. It seems as though the thread is getting caught on something inside the machine between the thread guide and thread take-up lever....

these are suggestion, if they don't help then the machine needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop
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

Loower looper keeps braking.

Sergers are... well can be a pain. "Lower looper thread keeps breaking." Ok... so Here is what I Would do. Get your magnifying glass out and really get in close with a good light and look for burrs on the looper. Also look for burrs on the throat plate, etc. If you find one use some very fine sand paper and carefully smooth it off.

If that doesn't help or fix it. Take it in to a repair shop and tell them what's going on. you might need it timed too. Good luck

Mb4 false thread break

found the problem and unfortunately it is not something that i can fix and will have to take it to the repair shop on monday. The thread spring for that needle is broken and flopping around a little bit more than it should. From what i have been able to find on the web the up and down motion of the thread spring is used to sense if the thread is actually being pulled through the machine. this is how it detects if either the top thread or bobbin thread is broken. top thread not advancing and pulling the thread so that the thread spring goes up and down indicates one of the two is busted. Had a lot of responses to this on another forum with one person even sending pictures of what to look for and apparently this is a very common problem if the thread is not properly put through the eyelet of the thread spring and gets caught in the wire wrap of the thread spring. It just pulls it and breaks it. getting old and the eye sight is fading so just bought a lighted magnifying glass lamp to stop me from hurting my sweet little machine. So if you have one needle that is constantly giving you a false thread break indication this is where to look

thanks everybody for the rest of your suggestions. they were greatly appreciated

Try a new needle, making sure it is put in properly. A bent needle can break thread. Make sure top tension is set properly.
