Phone the people you bought it from, explain what's happening and try to arrange to meet with them with your machine.......a 5 min lesson may just be all you need to get going again, or if the machine has a problem, they will see it and be able to sort you out.

Singer futura quartet seqs 6000 keeps giving me a broken thread error. Thread is not broken and I have done tried the unwaxed dental floss and canned air, Please help

Embroidery sewing machines will often give this error message due to low "drag" on the thread. Try placing the spool of thread upright into a cup on the floor and lead-up the thread as normal for threading. Make sure that the thread does not catch on the thread lock on the spool.

Happy stitching

My tension thread is not looping to my upper thread...keeps saying rethread machine and press start But my threads are not broken there just not catching

Remove all the thread from your machine. Check to make sure there are no loose threads or lint in the machine. If your machine requires oiling, follow the instructions.

Install a brand new needle.

RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Confirm the thread path is correct.

Check that the bobbin is loaded and threaded properly.

Pull the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric.
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

If the upper thread will not pull up the bobbin thread, the machine most likely has a timing issue. Take it for service.

Model 3434D. Why does lower looper thread keep breaking?

Usually thread breakage is due to incorrect threading or tension set too tight. When thread breaks, the Best Course of Action is to clip all the threads between the thread tree and the tension disks, Raise the presser foot, and pull all the threads down and out. (Never pull threads up through the tension disks.)

RAISE the presser foot, rethread each and every thread in the order specified in the manual and confirm that each thread path is correct. Grasp each thread between the thread tree and the tension disk with one hand and with the other hand grasp the thread below the tension disk and give a little tug to make sure each is seated firmly in the tension disk. Also on most machines, the lower looper thread must drape over the the upper looper before being pulled under the presser foot.

Lower the presser foot and set each tension guide to the midway point (the factory standard) and retest.

Usually, rethreading only the broken thread will fail. (For some reason, sergers are very finicky.) Just bite the bullet and rethread each and every thread.

My bobbin and thread are constantly breaking. I have the correct thread to needle, but I don't even get one stitch before both break. Tension is on auto; should it be less or more?

is the needle in the holder the correct way ( groove in the needle facing the thread )
Is the needle eye the correct size for the thread in use

remove it from auto tension setting and adjust it your self
make sure that the top thread is between the tension plates and not around the thread behind the plates
the thread tension is close to correct when you need a bit of a pull to pull it along to the needle
is the method of threading to the needle correct as any areas where the thread reverses direction will cause it to break
what do mean that the bobbin is constantly breaking or is it the bobbin thread that is breaking
have you got the thread down the case slot and under the flat spring correctly
the bobbin has to be inserted into the case in such a manner that when the thread is pulled , it flows down the slot freely as the bobbin turns
if the direction is wrong , the thread has to move across the sharp edge of the slot and will cut easily

My singer 8500q keeps coming up with a 06 error (top thread breaking) but it's not. Also tension not working or adjusting.

Probably a broken or stuck check spring (which is also part of the upper thread sensor). Also could be lint the tension disks if the thread is pulling down to the bottom.

I can't figure out what the thread guide is on my singer machine to thread the thread through to the needle?

The biggest problem most people face when having troubles pull the bobbin thread up is one of the following.

Wrong needle size (or broken/bent or otherwise damaged needle)
Needle is not fully set into the needle bar.
Needle is not correctly oriented.

Pulling up the bobbin thread is a simple matter of threading the upper thread, and inserting the bobbin with about 6 inches hanging loose. Grasp the top thread lightly.... turn the wheel counter clockwise one full revolution (the needle will go down and back up.) Just pull the top thread slightly and you should see the loop come through the throat plate. Use something like your scissor point to swipe under the presser foot to help retrieve the bobbin thread.

What is the model of your machine?

Bottom tread keeps jamming and getting all knoted up. The display gives me an E6 error code. what can i do

try re-threading your machine. usually when the machine is jammed at the bobbin or when the needle gets stuck to the bobbin thread, it means that there is an error with the thread. make sure that the thread isn't pulled through the wrong side of the needle, wrapped the wrong way around the wheels on the top, and that the bobbin is threaded correctly. if this doesn't work, you may want to contact their hotline.

It keeps giving the broken thread error but the thread is never broken. What am I doing wrong?

There will be a sensor that has either failed or needs adjusting, ....suggest you speak to a Singer service technician and ask for advice and a quote.

Problems with Singer CE-150... the LED light #19 keeps coming on, but I KNOW it isn't threaded incorrectly..

This machine uses a rotary thread break sensor. If you look at the top left of your machine when it is running the sensor (white dial) should be spinning. Threading around this part is critical. Make sure it spins when you pull thread through the needle. if it does not you have missed something in threading. If this is spinning and machine still stops it is likely the sensor is malfunctioning.

My machine is giving me an error 88 and keeps flashing fast when I turn it on.

I had that problem when the machine was not threaded correctly. I now floss the thread back and forth through the tension area everty time I thread the machine, to make sure the thread is in the right place.
