Sewing problems When I thread the machine and start to sew, the thread is bunching up and breaking. When I started to sew yesterday, I was able to sew three quilting squares together and then after that, it started bunching. Help!

Usually when the thread is bunching it indicates a tension problem. Be sure you've got your bobbin wrapped properly and everything threaded and facing in the correct direction. Adjust the tension in small increments and never pull in fabric as you push it through the foot.

The thread is breaking the whole time, what could possibly be the problem?

Could be several things, ie mis-threading, burr or snag is catching the thread, old/bargain bin thread, needle is not compatible with thread and fabric, tension is incorrect...

The first thing to try (and also the least expensive), install a brand new needle.

Remove the upper thread. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

Thread is bunching up then breaks on the top

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

Top thread bunching under fabric when sewing

tension could be too loose. start with bobbin tension- should allow thread to pass with SLIGHT resistance. then adjust top tension at about 2-3 to start.

I have a White 3300 embroidery machine not catching bobbin thread

Try putting a new sewing machine needle in and make sure the eye of the needle is facing the right way. Needles look like they should go just anyway, but if they aren't in right, it could cause the problem you are having.

Thread breaking.

it doesn't take certain needles. Make sure youre tension isn't too tight, both top and bobbin. Also I found with my Euron Pro that the thread needs to be at the back and I have to hold it kind of tight when I start or it will bunch under the plate and break. Hope this helps. Feel free to email me at [email protected] if you need help with tension settings
