Hello! It sound to me like your needle is dull or old. Old needles get sharpened by the miles of thread that is fed through them and as the needle reverse in direction and begins to head back up it will actually cut the thread instead of allowing it to slide through. If you change the needle and the problem persists you may have a timing issue.

Good Luck!

Thread keeps breaking, can't seem to get the


1. Maybe you are using the wrong size machine needle or poor quality thread.
2. You must always lift the presser foot before threading the machine to release the tension discs.
3. Maybe you have broken thread stuck in the discs or bobbin race. Give them a clean. Pull a thicker thread by hand through the tension discs when the presser foot is up.

Model vx710 upper tread keeps breaking adjusted both tentions


If the timing is a bit off this could also be causing the thread to break. lf you've had a good attempt at getting the two tensions right and not having any joy, then it could be timing is just out a little.

I'm assuming that its good quality thread and same top and bottom and that you've checked the thread paths for any places where it could be catching/jamming etc already.

If machine has been at least 2 years since a service then might be time to take it for one.
