The thread goes round a tension wheel, use a screwdriver to release the tension a little.

Eileen, Is the needle touching the needle guide? If yes then adjust the needle such that it is in the middle of the guide. Also the thread tensioner may be too tight. Loosen it a little.

Hi
Please check the bellow links regaring your query…

If your top tension is not too tight then your thread may be catching on a burr somewhere. Follow everywhere below the needle where the thread can actually touch the machine. Sometimes after a needle hits something it leaves burrs on the metal that the thread catches on and breaks or cuts. A big problem is the hole that the needle goes through on the needleplate. These get gouged up and the thread catches there. Needlplates are inexpensive and easy to replace (search online) and probably it will solve your problem. If the burr is below the needleplate like on the rotating hook then it needs to be polished off with emery paper. A good way to find out is by running your fingernail over everywhere the thread passes over.
Let us know if you have somethin more to ask else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya

The usual problem is either a slightly bent needle...so try a new one

Or you are using inferior thread.

SOURCE: BabyLock Proline upper looper thread keeps breaking

I ended up switching the spools of thread around. Apparently, even though I had purchased good quality threads, one of the spools was wound in a way that made the thread loop and twist around. So I put the offending spool of thread through one of the needles and put the needle thread on the upper looper. That seems to be working. By the way, BabyLoc was very unhelpful dealing with this problem.  Thank you!

SOURCE: The upper thread keeps breaking, even though I

Have you change your needle? I've the same problem adjusted the tension but when I changed the needle, it worked fine. If that doesn't work, you might want to take it into a sewing service shop and have them take a look at it. They should be able to tell right then what the problem is. If it is a severe problem and you don't have a spare machine, you might want to ask if they will give you a loaner. Usually they will give you a machine to use until your machine is fixed. Hope this helps!

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.

The thread keeps bursting after a few stitches. I've tried adjusting upper & bottom tensions,changing the needle, trying it with different fabrics, but nothing seems to work. What do I do?


Usually when it stitches an inch or two and then breaks, the upper thread is mis-threaded.

Remove the upper thread and rethread from the beginning. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread. Check to make sure the thread path is correct. If it is threaded incorrectly, the thread will frequently break.

Also check that the thread is not hanging up somewhere, sometimes it gets looped around something or it snags on the little slit on the thread spool or a rough spot.

If the upper thread tension is too tight, it will also break the thread. Make sure the tension disk is clean. If there is gunk or a piece of thread stuck in the tension disk, it could be interfering.

If the thread is fraying as it goes through the needle eye, then there is probably an incompatibility of the needle, thread, fabric.

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.

Top thread keeps breaking


Upper thread breaking is usually a sign of incorrect threading or tension too tight, although there are other possible problems:

Industrial Garment Printers Sewing Machines

When threading the upper thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat properly in the tension disks. Avoid old thread or bargain bin thread. If the thread is fraying and breaking at or near the needle eye, then try a different type of needle with a larger thread groove that will protect the thread from fraying on rough fabric. Also, check that the thread is not hanging up on something, ie the slit on the side of the spool where the thread tail is stored.

My thread keeps breaking, Ive checked and changed my needle, re-threaded bobbin and upper but every time I try to sew the upper thread breaks.


Have you tried loosening the upper tension? Remove the upper thread, RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning (make sure it follows the correct thread pathway). Sometimes the upper thread jumps out of a thread guide or wraps around something. Or try a different brand of thread? Avoid old or bargain bin threads--use good quality thread. Could also be the incorrect needle for the thread/fabric, ie thread too large for the needle eye.

So when I start sewing it works for a few seconds then my top thread breaks and or wraps its self around the black casing the bobbin sits in. What am I doing wrong?


Be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. This releases the tension disk so the thread can seat properly. If upper thread is breaking soon after beginning to sew, it usually is because the upper tension is too tight. Try loosening it and re-testing. The upper and lower threads should meet in the middle of the fabric.

Brother pc 8500 upper thread breaks


Check the spindle the thread is mounted on and see if it\'s wrapped around it. Sometimes thread will catch and wrap around the spool spindle and break.

Check thread guides to be sure there are no nicks that might be catching the thread or damaging it.



Replace the needle.. a burr in the eye can cause upper thread to break. Needles should be replaced often, modern fibres can be hard on them, they get dull and that\'s no help for anything either.



Make sure the thread spool is mounted on the spindle with the thread coming off as directed in the manual. Some machines only work when the thread feeds in the right direction from the spool.



It can also be a tension issue.. tight upper tension or tight bobbin tension. Bobbin tension may be adjustable manually, but it\'s pretty rare for it be a problem. Upper tension, I don\'t know. I\'ve yet to get into computer machines so am not familiar with how they set upper tension.



But the mechanism that produces the tension can wear out or break and need replacement.
