Question about Euro-Pro Easy Sewlution 385 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Thread breaking. I have a problem with my thread breaking ...the thread that goes through the needle. As soon as I start it breaks. It seems to be getting tangled in the bottom and I have to keep pulling it out and cutting it where it gets tangled. What do I do? I tries changing the needle. Does this sewing machine take only certain needles? The manual does not say. Thanks, Peggy

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

SOURCE: Thread breaking.

Rethread the machine following these directions:
all machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.
Remove the bobbin case and bobbin. Pull on the bobbin thread to make sure it doesn't pull too hard. It should have some tension on it but not a lot. Insert the bobbin and bobbin case into the hook assembly and pull on the bobbin thread again.The tension should still be about the same. If it is tight, you need to look at the bottom of the pin that the bobbin case sits on and see if there are any threads looped around it. If there are , you need to remove them.
Hold the top thread , turn the hand wheel and see if the thread is catching someplace around the hook assembly. If it pulls the thread up easily, put some fabric in it and see how it works.
Make sure the thread is through the take up lever.

When starting to sew, the thread goes down into the bobbin area and then gets tangled around the bobbin and breaks. Just ends with a knot being sewed


Be sure you install a brand new needle.

Make sure the thread is fully seated in the tension disk: 1) remove the top thread from the machine, 2) ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.

If the machine continues to misbehave, you should probably take it for service.

Brother exedra E-40 why it alway get tangle and brake the threat?


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

The thread gets tangled in the bobbin area when needle goes down


This is common... and typically caused by operator error. First take the thread spool completely off the machine... and replace it then rethread making sure that it's done properly and with the pressure foot in the UP position

Second... make sure that when you are starting a seam.... grasp the thread ends until you are at least 2 inches into the seam.

Third if you are successful you are done.... if you still have loops and tangles below, adjust your top thread tension (little bits at a time) sew a little, then adjust again a little.

4th... it's unlikely... but it does happen. Every once in a while.. especially after a needle break... your bobbin can get a nick or burr... as can the hook. Inspect carefully with a strong magnifying glass. If you find a burr try some emery board or fine sand paper. While you are at it check your needle.. it may need replacing too.

Good luck!

Bobbin does not sew: the upper thread gets tangles underneath but the bobbin thread is not involved


bird nesting indicates that the needle thread tension is not tight enough
pull the thread out as if threading the needle and the tension is close when there is resistance to pulling the thread

The thread keeps breaking and tangling in the machine


Make sure the needle is inserted correctly with the flat side of the needle oriented as described in your manual. Different machines have different needle orientation and could cause this problem. Perhaps when you re-inserted the original needle it inadvertently got corrected.

Thread breaking, not even threaded in needle anymore, thread gets caught on spool sometimes


Upper thread breaks
1.the needle may be bent or damaged--try rolling the needle on a flat surface to see if it's bent or not
Or the needle could be in backwards
Correct needle insertion
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine or if using a round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
2.upper tension may be to tight--try 3 to 5
3.thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
???
Lower thread breaks
The most probable cause of lower thread breaking is improperly wound bobbin
1.always start with a empty bobbin
Never wind one color over the other
2.choose thread that is identical in color & type as the one to be used for upper threading
3.wind the bobbin evenly across & in layers
4.don't wind the bobbin so full that it would be tight & hard to insert into bobbin case
5.bent bobbin--replace
6.lint built up in the bobbin case--frequent cleanings will eliminate this problem, the more often you use the sewing machine the more often it needs to be cleaned
7.thread catching on the bobbin spring or latch on bobbin case, check to see that the bobbin is inserted completely & correctly, & that you are using the right kind of bobbin

for the top & bobbin thread keep thread tails of 3 to 6 inches long pulled behind the needle before you start sewing

yes,sometimes the thread will get caught on the spool, you might think about getting a extra holder that sets behind the machine to hold those spool's that the thread get caught on, that's what I did.

How to thread a Viking Huskey Model 140


Remove the needle.
The flat of the needle goes toward the back of the machine, make sure that there is a groove in the front of the needle (that goes to the top of the shank).

Reduce the tension to low (2-3). Gradually increase tension to get a proper stitch.

Thread breaks


Hi!

Check to see if the lower thread be tangled. Also, the bobbin could be threaded improperly in the shuttle hook. Rethread the bobbin in the shuttle hook.
How to detangle a thread---

  • When a machine stops operation due to tangled thread, do not turn the pulley by force.
    If the pulley is turned by force then, lower thread might not be picked up correctly and stitches might not be formed correctly.

  • If threads get tangled, remove a needle plate and cut the tangled threads by scissors or cutter.
  • Do rate the solution if you find it helpful & useful.

    Thanks
