Question about Necchi 4595 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Open Question

My Machine is actually a 4795

The needle keeps breaking. I have changed it several time, tried size 14 and size 16. I have cleaned it, oiled it... tried everything in the owners manual. Now the needle isn't breakig but now it either won't stay threaded or it gets stuck. I just bought this machine and have only used it a couple times.

    I am pretty handy and patient! I'll give it a try. Please give me the instructions! Thank you so much.

    Okay, I followed the above instructions and it does need to be adjusted but I am not sure what screws you are refering to when you state the screws that you can see on the BACK OF THE RACEWAY. Can you explain further what screws I am looking for or where they are located. Thank you so much.

SOURCE: needle picks up bobbin thread but then thread gets stuck

I've had similar problems (as well as other problem with the thread breaking all the time and the "shuttle race" thing that holds the bobbin falling out. One very important thing that isn't mentioned in the manual but that the salesman stressed is that you have to use only "Schmetz" brand needles. They are a tiny bit longer, but that makes all the difference in the world if your stitches are skipping. I forgot and used Singer needles and had horrible results.

SOURCE: thread breaking with my MegaQuilter,

The problem you describes sounds like it maybe caused by a burr along the thread path. Does the thread shred or does it appear to be cut? Does this only happen with so fine or with other threads as well? Take your finger or if that doeswork use a cotton ball, along the thread path, you are looking for a sharp spot that will be causing your thread to shred. Change you needle for a new one, Make sure you put it in the correct way. Also if these don't do the trick hand wheel the needle up and down a few times. make sure that there isn't a burr in the throat plate from a broken needle and observe near the bobbin case and timing finger that the needle isn't rubbing against something( you might want to use a magnifing glass). i hope this helps. I know how frustrating it can be .

SOURCE: Manuals/Video

Contact Allyn International INC. which are the distributors in the US. Model 4795 and 4595 are the same but one is the instructional type I think, that's what the person I talked to told me. I got a free video and booklet from them. Fortunately my machine came with the manual, but it was not enough for the hemmer foot and I also needed some help with the overcasting stitches. This booklet explain all the stitches, the foot you need to use and the proper width and length of the stitch.

SOURCE: bottom thread keep breaking , sew an inch then break !!

Make sure that the needle is all the way up in the needle bar.
Unscrew until just loose, use finger nail or small screw driver to push up on the needle. The two needles do not line up.The right needle extends longer. Also, make sure that there are no burs on the needles and that they are straight and correct for your machine.

Oh, yeh, one more thing I just thought of: Rethread the top thread and make sure the thread is not hanging up on the spool, spool pin, or wrapped around a thread guide. When my thread breaks after 3-4 inches, it's usually because something is stopping the top thread.

I am not sure about this particular machine but in most machines there will be a nob on the front loose low numbers like 0 1 -2 work well on number 3. If the nob is not on the front check and see if it is on the side.

My Janome 1600 keeps breaking threads


Is the tension too tight? Are the tension discs clean? Remove bobbin case, clean it and re-thread as this may be jammed.

The top thread keeps breaking. The thread pulls tight and breaks. I have removed a broken thread piece from the upper take-up lever, rethreaded (several times), cleaned out bobbin, moved thread spool on...


try a tension a 3 to 5 on the top tension
try changing to a needle or if it's a new needle make sure the flat side of the needle faces the back of the machine and pushed all the way up into the needle holder
make sure the needle & thread are correct for each other, if the needle is to thin or to heavy for the fabric it will not work

My Husqvarna diamond top thread keeps breaking while doing loop embroidery. It sews a couple of stitches and then you can hear when the thread breaks. Ive tried changing the needle and bobbin, and cleaning...


Hello

Primary causes of upper thread breakage:


-- misthreading: pull all the thread off and thread again, using the manual, step by step. Read each step aloud before you do it. (sounds dumb, but helps.) (And make sure you thread the takeup lever!)

-- thread has wrapped itself around a thread guide or spool pin from one of the breaks. Take the spool off the machine before rethreading.

-- bad or damaged needle. Replace with the right size for the fabric, turned correctly (backwards needles skip stitches)

-- dirty machine, especially in the bobbin case area: review cleaning instructions and do it, using brush and vacuum only

-- bad/cheap thread: should not be slubby or break easy. Try another spool.

-- top thread tension too tight. 4 is normal for most fabrics, most stitches.

Tips;

1) do a light cleaning (brush and vacuum) every day you sit down to sew.

2) replace the needle if you hear it hit metal, if you've got a really bad thread jam, if you see it deflect as you sew (for instance, sewing over the side seam on jeans when hemming). Replace every 3-8 hours of actual stitching time anyhow.

3) buy good quality thread

4) when your machine isn't sewing right, stop; take all the thread off of/out of the machine (bobbin out of bobbin case, spool off spool pin) and give it a quick cleaning. Rethread from scratch, carefully. If that doesn't fix it, do it again, then replace needle and rethread one more time, manual in hand (yah, even if you've threaded it 8 million times before). #4 is curative about 98% of the time. The other 2% often requires professional attention.

My machine is breaking the thread. I tried changing the needle, adjusting the tension, and different threads. It is still breaking the thread. I took the top cover off and oiled it and the bottom cover...


What needle size and thread are you using? The needle may be too small for the size thread or you are not threading it correctly.
You should also check the bobbin area to see if the thread is getting caught or snagged.
