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.

Help plse, after threading it dont make the overlocking stitches. New machine, help with right way to thread machine and the smaller detail of threading.

Your machine is either not threaded correctly, or the individual threads have not been threaded in order. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine. You must follow the instructions exactly or the machine will most likely never work properly. Can you at least get a training class on your machine? A class is indispensable, especially when it comes to using a serger.

Even if it is not the same model, these instructions may be helpful.

What must I now do to get it to make a loop. Have re-threaded 100 times

The machine timing and needle position is critical in catching the upper thread by the hook. The upper thread via the hook shuttle surrounds the bobbin making the stitch.

All machines have to achieve the same function but accomplish it through different arrangements.

the process includes the following: needle goes through fabric down adjacent to shuttle hook. needle starts up creating loop in upper thread at the point of the hook. Hook rotates and catches the loop.
Hook continues and thread circles the shuttle. Upper thread is pulled up by the thread take up.

I am having trouble getting the bobbin to function properly during sewing.

It could be the top thread is the problem. Might try removing all the thread. Consult the owner's manual for threading instructions. RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread so the thread will seat properly in the tension disk. Re-thread from the beginning carefully following the instructions--do not miss any spots or thread guides.

If top thread is still creating a mess of loops under the fabric, try tightening the upper tension. The tension is ideal when both upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Would be helpful to know what model machine you have.
A new machine should not need tension adjustment, so guessing it is not being threaded correctly. There should be adequate instruction on how to do this and how to wind a bobbin in the manual.
The main thing is you need to have the presser foot UP when you thread the top thread. This opens the tension discs so the thread will go between the discs and be put under tension once the presser foot goes down before you sew. When you thread the bobbin, be sure it is unspooling in the correct direction and that it clicks into its tension slot. A Universal 80 needle will do for 95% of what you sew, exceptions being very lightweight fabric, knitted fabrics, or very heavyweight fabric.
Write a reply back to Fixya if this does not help you, but include more detail on just exactly which machine you have.

Thread is going on cutting.

you do need to provide more details.  start here - get a fresh spool of high quality all purpose thread such as Coats and Clarks or Metrosene thread, fill a fresh bobbin, install a new size 11 needle.  Follow the threading instructions even if you've threaded the machine a million times, read the instructions again.  try sewing on some basic cotton fabric.  You'll be able to determine if it's the machine.  Breaking thread can be the thread (it does get too old and fragile), the needle, the incorrect needle for the fabric, the wrong thread for the fabric, and a host of other things.  So try that and tell us more if that doesn't work.

XL tension setting

Hi - and welcome to FixYa. It sound like your machine is not threaded correctly. Here is the first rule: when you thread your machine, make sure your presser foot is raised up. Never thread your machine when your presser foot is down. When the presser foot is raised, the tension dials open and allow your thread to pass through the dials when you thread the machine. If thread is loose and hard to handle while you are trying to thread, just press down on the thread somewhere near to the top of the machine so it does not slide around. Here is the good news - when you have reached the needle, you can lower the presser foot. Before you thread the needle, pull your thread - if you threaded the machine correctly, the thread should not move. If it does move, you need to start over. If the thread does not move, you can thread you need with the foot up or down, pull the thread under your presser foot and pull it toward the back of the machine. Leave a 2 or 3 inch tail.

If you don't have your manual, you can download a free copy from the Brother web site. Brother manuals have very detailed, easy-to-read instructions. To get to the correct web page, use the link below:
