The thread is breaking the whole time, what could possibly be the problem?


Could be several things, ie mis-threading, burr or snag is catching the thread, old/bargain bin thread, needle is not compatible with thread and fabric, tension is incorrect...

The first thing to try (and also the least expensive), install a brand new needle.

Remove the upper thread. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

Lower looper cotton keeps breaking


Usually it means it is not threaded correctly. Remove ALL the threads from your machine. Be sure you RAISE the presser foot when threading. ALWAYS thread in the correct order. Verify the thread path for each is correct. Check that the threads are seated in the tension disks--give each a little tug when going through the tension disk. Be sure that the thread tree is extended to its full height. Check that the lower looper threads are not set too tight. Also, always use fresh thread--no old stuff from grandma's sewing basket.

ONE MORE TIP: When a thread breaks, you will usually find it less frustrating to unthread the ENTIRE machine and start from scratch. Trying to fish a thread out of sequence will most often times end in failure.

I have a Juki TL98E and when I got it forgot to put the presser foot down and obviously the needle broke several times. Now the thread keeps breaking. Thoughts?


Remove all the thread from the machine. Thoroughly check that there are no stray threads or lint stuck anywhere. Oil your machine per the instructions.

Make sure you are using a brand new needle.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the machine. Verify the thread path is correct. Check that the bobbin is installed and threaded correctly.

Set the tension to the midway point. Pull the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric. Gently hold the thread tails while you take a couple of slow stitches.

If it is still not sewing correctly, it's quite possible the timing is off (which is common when a needle breaks). You'll probably need to take it for service.

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.

Thread keeps breaking


Hai, I think your thread very old or thick. Please putting some drop oil in thread. If your cloth lighter, you use small size needle and new cotton or silk thread.
