Machine keeps giving the thread broken error light.
The thread is not broken and the machine is threaded correctly. When the E! light comes on I pull out the thread between 4 and 5 on the treading guide and it work for a while and then goes back doing it. The sewing machice is brand new.

Re: machine keeps giving the thread broken error light.
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.

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.
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
flashing lights, beeping sound
are error signs its posiibly the upper tension path is not threaded correctly. Check that the transparent thread path located at the top of the machine is threaded correctly.
Hold thread in both hands and slip under transparent thread guide. While holding the thread securely, pull the thread towards you and then slip it back and forth like you were flossing. You should hear or feel two clicks as the thread slips past the thread guides.
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.
The thread sensors may need replacing, but meantime make sure that your machine is threaded correctly with the upper thread going into the tension disks. The presser foot HAS to be up when you are threading so that the disks are open and ready to receive the thread. I pull off about 15 inches (40cm) of thread then hold the thread where it comes off the thread spool. Use the thread you pulled off to go through the thread guides and tension disks down to the needle. Tug the thread (you are still holding the thread at the top near the spool) before threading the needle to be sure it is seated in the tension disks. Also make sure that once you have threaded the needle, there is a decent sized thread tail so that when the machine starts, the thread is not going to pop out of the needle's eye. Hold onto the thread tail (I lay it on the machine bed and just put my finger on it) for the first few stitches. Having this little bit of tension on it helps to make sure the bobbin thread comes up and makes the first stitches. Sometimes if this does not happen, the top thread is pulled underneath and the "Thread Broken" pop-up appears. If checking that the machine is threaded correctly top and bobbin does not solve the problem, you need the sensors checked by a machine technician.
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.
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.
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.
