Lower your tension. Should stop it from breaking. If that doesn't help, then re-thread

You either have a burr on one of the loopers, or you have threaded the loopers in the wrong order. I do not have this particular serger, but with mine, if I the lower looper thread is looped above the upper one(down where they all meet), it will break. Cut your lower looper thread and re thread it making sure its above the lower looper one.

1. INITIAL SEWING SPEED IS TOO FAST - START WITH MEDIUM SPEED.

2. UPPERTHREAD PATH IS INCORRECT - USE THE PROPER THREAD PATH.

3. NEEDLE IS BENT OR DULL. REPLACE WITH A NEW NEEDLE.

4. UPPER THREAD TENSION IS TOO STRONG - ADJUST UPPER THREAD TENSION CORRECTLY (= 4)

5. NEEDLE SIZE IS INAPPROPRIATE FOR FABRIC - USE APPROPRIATE NEEDLE AND THREAD FOR FABRIC.

6. NEEDLE EYE IS WORN. CHANGE THE NEEDLE.

7. NEEDLE HOLE IN NEEDLE PLATE IS WORN - REPAIR THE BURRED HOLE OR REPLACE THE NEEDLE PLATE.

I keep breaking needles on my Brother 1034D.


Sounds like your timing has messed up ... your booklet should tell you how to adjust this. If you do not have the book, Google "Setting the timing on my Brother 1034D" and you should be able to figure it out using a video or someones procedure ... good luck!
