Change the needle and be sure the flat side is to the back. Rethread the machine. Remove and reinsert the bobbin. Hold the top thread and turn the handwheel to see it the top thread will pick up the bobbin. If yes, it should sew ; if not, it is probably out of time and needs to be seen by a technician.

My machine keeps on breaking the thread


You don't state which thread is breaking, so will assume it is the top thread.

AVOID using old or bargain bin thread!

Remove the thread.
Install a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Set the top tension to the midway point (this may need to be tweaked for your individual machine).

If it still breaks, then the thread may be catching somewhere, perhaps on the needle plate or in the bobbin area. When a needle deflects, it will sometimes strike somewhere and cause a burr or rough spot. That rough spot will then catch the thread and cause it to break or shred.

Wrap your index finger with a fine piece of scrap fabric like chiffon, nylon knit, or silk. Then run your finger around the surface (top & bottom) of the needle plate and in the bobbin area. If the fabric catches, there is a burr. Also check the hook/shuttle as this where a lot of burrs are located. If it is a small burr, it can be smoothed with a fine emery board or emery cloth. It the burr is large, the part may need to be replaced.

Kenmore mini ultra The top thread breaks off from needle after a few stitches. The bobbin seems to Be catching the top thread. Thank you. ??


If the top thread sews a few inches and then breaks, something is catching the top thread and holding it until it breaks. Usually, this will happen when using the old style thread cones with the slit in the edge to keep the thread from raveling off the spool. To prevent the thread from hanging up, turn the thread spool over so the slit is at the top instead of the bottom. Sometimes top thread breaks will happen if the thread becomes looped around the thread spool pin.

Remove the thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and then rethread the upper thread. Verify that the thread path is correct and that the thread has not looped around a guide.

If the thread is fraying at the needle eye, the needle/thread are not compatible. Also, the tension may be too high.

Check that the upper tension disk is clean--no gunk buildup or thread pieces stuck.

If the thread is actually breaking when it penetrates the needle plate hole, there may be a burr or nick somewhere below that is catching the upper thread. You can wrap your finger with a piece of fine fabric, like an old pair of hosier, fine knit fabric, etc. and running your finger around in the bobbin area, under the needle plate. If you get snags, then you have a burr or nick. If it is small, you can sometimes smooth it with a fine emery board. If it is a large burr, you may need to purchase a replacement part.

The top thread does not catch the bobbin thread. It worked fine for an hour or so and just in the middle of a design it start having this problem. Please can someone help me?


Be sure to install a brand new needle. Sometimes a bent/damaged needle will not pick up the bobbin thread.

Sounds like the timing could be off on your machine. There are web sites & videos explaining sewing machine timing or you can take it for service.
