Question about Yamata FY920

Needles keep breaking

I am having trouble understanding why the needle keeps breaking in my Yamata FY920. After a couple of minutes of sewing it brakes and parts of it fly into the room. The screw is thight and I use a standard needle. Do I need a particular type of needle? The one I am using now, looks like the ones that came with the machine when I bought it.

My yamata machine breaking needles


Something is out of alignment on your machine. You should probably take it for service. Flying needle shards can be very dangerous.

Why does the thread on my sewing machine keep breaking?


Several possibilities. It could be the needle, the tension too tight, mis-threading, the thread weight, brand, poor quality, or fabric incompatibility with needle & thread.

There are several common reasons for upper thread breakage.

Check that the needle/thread/fabric are compatible.
All About Needles

Remove the upper thread from the machine, install a brand new needle, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point.

I am using a finesse 356 sewing machine and the thread keeps on breaking off at the needle. What could be the problem?


Could be threaded wrong. Could be tension too tight. Could be a bad needle. Could be bad thread (avoid old thread or bargain bin thread). The fabric, needle, and thread may not be compatible, ie the thread is too large for the needle's eye, could be incorrect thread for the fabric, the fabric may be too coarse and is wearing the thread and causing it to break... There could be a burr or nick somewhere that is catching the thread. The thread could be hanging up somewhere in the thread path on the way from the spool to the needle causing it to break when it reaches the needle.

Why does the right needle keep breaking in myloc 634d


I agree with John Smeed It could be that the needle is bent or in the wrong way if it keeps on breaking it must be hitting the throat plate or it's timing may be out( a pro job) Also check the needle is in as high as it can go.

Question is not clear? Read the needle? The print is really small and it will just tell you the size. Needles are good for 10 hours and cost and average of 70 cents. If there is any concern about your needle, throw it away and get a different one.
