Rethread the machine
check the top tension-usually 3 or 4 is good
change the needle & make sure it's inserted correctly (flat side to the back of machine)
some needles & thread do not work togeather--try this

Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

also make sure the thread tail are 3-6 inches long & pulled behind the needle

Upper thread too tight and the control wheel for loosening upper thread is not much of help since it is set for 0 to 2 for sewing simplest things. How to fix it? Thread is constantly breaking off.


Totally remove the upper thread from the machine then rethread. When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat properly in the tension disk. The thread is probably breaking because the tension is too tight. Try setting it at the midway point and then tweak it from there. Also check that the thread path is correct--incorrect threading could cause extra tension on the thread.

In case there is gunk build-up in the tension disk, you can moisten a piece of perl cotton thread with rubbing alcohol, loosen the tension disk all the way, Raise the presser foot and then, gently, pull the perl cotton Down through the tension disk a couple of times. (Always pull Down, Never Up!)

If you continue to have problems, you may need to take it for service.

Why does my thread keep breaking on my brother ce4000? The machine is 100% threaded correctly new needle properly wound bobbin, I just don't know what could be wrong with it.


Could be a multitude of things. Use only good quality thread--no old or bargain bin threads. Try a different brand of thread--some machines prefer certain brands over others. The needle and thread should be compatible--ie needle eye shouldn't be too small for thread weight. Burr catching the thread and breaking it. Upper tension too tight.

Remove the upper thread, RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread is not looped incorrectly in the thread path, like around a thread guide or around the spool pin. Is the thread snagging on the thread spool itself? Do you see the thread tightening as you sew and eventually it breaks? This indicates it is catching somewhere between the needle and spool. Is it shredding at the needle eye? This indicates the needle eye is not suitable for the thread being used.

Watch where the thread is breaking. This will sometimes give you a clue where the problem exists.

I just got my sewing machine 2 months ago just started to use it icant because it keep breaking the thread ihave a fleeling i have it sat up wrong like the teason als may be t o tight thanks Jan from


***Upper tension setting
*** Put the pressure foot up.
***As you are threading give little tugs to check for snags. Snags must be fixed.
***When finished threading (not the needle) put the pressure foot down.
***Check the tension by starting at zero and increase the tension slowly and give small tugs to see if the tension is rising. (This is all done without the needle being threaded)
***When you feel comfortable this is working then thread the needle and set the tension at four.
***Set the bobbin tension. Attachment gives instructions.
Now that all of the tension has been set you can try for

So when I start sewing it works for a few seconds then my top thread breaks and or wraps its self around the black casing the bobbin sits in. What am I doing wrong?


Be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. This releases the tension disk so the thread can seat properly. If upper thread is breaking soon after beginning to sew, it usually is because the upper tension is too tight. Try loosening it and re-testing. The upper and lower threads should meet in the middle of the fabric.

Check the tension for upper thread and bobbin(tiny screw to turn anticlockwise to give less tension)

Singer Futura 350 bogus thread breaking error


I had the same problem for a LONG time. Yesterday I finally removed the top and the cover for the upper tension and found thread fragments under one of the discs. I removed it and used compressed air for dust clean out and it is working wonderfully. Good Luck

Thread wont overlock


When the thread breaks too often, try these, that goes for all sewing machines
1. Replace the needles,
2. Loosen slightly the tension of the needle threads.
3. The top threads are to thin,
4.The sewing (rotary) hook or looper, has burs,
5. Wrong threading
