I just posted this elsewhere, but it seems relevant to your question as well:

You need to increase your top tension.
Immediately after threading the machine, but before you thread the needle, with the presser foot in the up position, grab the thread at the bottom and top, and "floss" it a few times. This will ensure that the thread works its way into the tension assemblies.
Then raise your tension to about 4.5, drop the presser foot, and you should be good to go.

Top thread keeps breaking. Adjusting the tension does absolutely nothing. It seems as though the thread is getting caught on something inside the machine between the thread guide and thread take-up lever....


these are suggestion, if they don't help then the machine needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop
The top thread breaks


1. the needle thread is not threaded properly


2. The needle thread tension is to tight


3. The needle is bent or blunt


4. The needle is incorrectly inserted


5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew


6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing


7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle


8. Try a different spool or cone of thread

How can I factory reset my PFAFF 7550 sewing machine ?


Try these suggestions
1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed
2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide
3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case
4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads

My machine gathers thread in the bobbin and then the thread breaks off.


check the needle to see if it's damaged

The thread bunches up under the material when i sew. thread then clogs up under the plate.


first start with the needle & see if it's bent-roll the needle on a flat surface & see if it roll correctly
when a needle is blunt it makes a popping sound when it goes thru the fabric
check the bobbin to see if it's warped-I have had some that were
check to see if there is lint or loose thread in the bobbin case area
rethread the machine to make sure the upper thread is not catching on anything
sometimes the thread can come off the thread take up lever
& sometimes it can get caught on the spool pin & also on the notch that's on the thread spool it's self---I've had this happen before
if you sew alot-good maintenance practice is to clean the bobbin case area at least once a week-if you don't sew alot-once a month & also under the needle plate
when cleaning under the needle plate-make sure you do not damage the top of the screws when you remove them to clean under the needle plate & because if the top of screws get damaged they can pull the fabric when the fabric goes over them
check also to make sure your top tension is correct

Stitches are gathering on backside when sewing on patches


This is caused by a bent needle. Try a different needle that is straight. When they get the slightest bed in them the stitching will end on the back side only

Needle jaming and thread gathering under bobin case


when this happens to me (the needle breaking) I make it a thing to do and that is to use a qtip with a bit of oil and clean the bobbin holder and then use canned air and blow out the lint from area and this may help you. You may have a tiny tiny piece of needle left in the holder and this will play havoc with any kind of sewing machine. I have suffered through it many times before I made this a practice when needle breaks
