Question about Euro-Pro 8260 Mechanical Sewing Machine
How do I thread this machine?
All machines thread the same. TTN tension,take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test,adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

If so it threads just like my sewing machine.Draw your thread across the top,down into the first slot,then up and thru the second slot,come down,pass it thru the thread guide on the needle,then thread your needle.Most all machines are basic when it comes to threading.HTH

Usually there is a flat spot on the part of the needle that makes it so you can only install it the correct way. Try changing the thread. If it keeps breaking you will need to adjust the threads tension control. If it is too tight your machine won't be able to pull the correct amount of "slack" it needs to make a good stitch. You might only need to turn the adjustment a small amount to make a big difference. The thread should come off the spool and go through an arm that moves up and down. Then the thread loops around the tension adjustment. It will most likely be a knob or dial with numbers on its face. I hope this helps.
