    I have Brothers XL-3100. When I sew, the machine comes unthreaded. The thread does not seem to have been cut. I am an apprentice. This is odd to me. Thank you.

You may be sewing to fast or your tension may be off. Check in side the bobbin casing for any loose thread peices.

Hi i have a empisal 550d overlocker . I have difficulty with cotton breaking after sewing for a few seconds. Can you help please ?


Could be the tension is set too high on that particular thread tensioner.

If it is not the tension, then this is the first thing to try (I know, it's painful but 99% of the time takes care of my issue): Remove all the threads from the machine, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and then rethread from the beginning. Verify that you are threading each in the "proper" order and that the threadpath for each is correct.

If it is a needle thread, replace with a brand new needle. Try a different brand of thread or spool on that particular threadpath. AVOID old or bargain bin thread. Check to make sure that particular thread is not hanging up on a burr, a sharp spot, or looped in the thread tree, etc. that catches the thread and holds it from advancing through the path.

The top tread breaks after about 1inch when trying to do chain stich on my janome cover stich machine


Could be the result of several things. There could be some gunk or threads stuck in the tension disk. Be sure to remove the thread and rethread from the beginning in the order specified. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading!!!! If you haven't tried a brand new needle, do so, and make sure it is pushed all the way up and installed with the flat side facing the correct direction. Some machines recommend #90 as the largest needle to use. Also, perhaps the needle eye is too small to accommodate the thread. Watch where the thread is breaking to give you an idea of where the problem may originate. Try a different brand of thread. Sometimes black thread causes issues because the heavy dye affects the thread. Set the tensions at the midway point and then loosen the tension on that one needle. There could also be a burr or rough spot somewhere along the threadpath that is catching the thread. Last idea--could be a timing issue.

The thread continues to break


Install a brand new needle--one that matches the type of thread and fabric you are sewing. If the thread is shredding at the needle, then the needle's eye may be too small for the thread.

All About Needles

Avoid using old or bargain bin thread. Try a different type of thread.

Check that the thread is threaded correctly in the machine and that it is not wrapped around the thread spool or a thread guide. Also, set the upper tension to the midway point, ie the tension could be too tight.

My thread keeps breaking, Ive checked and changed my needle, re-threaded bobbin and upper but every time I try to sew the upper thread breaks.


Have you tried loosening the upper tension? Remove the upper thread, RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning (make sure it follows the correct thread pathway). Sometimes the upper thread jumps out of a thread guide or wraps around something. Or try a different brand of thread? Avoid old or bargain bin threads--use good quality thread. Could also be the incorrect needle for the thread/fabric, ie thread too large for the needle eye.

My needle threads keep on breaking, I don't know what to do


  • Check the tension of the upper thread. If it's too tight, the pressure on the thread will cause it to break.
  • Check the thread you are using. If you're using two different kinds (one on top and one in the bobbin) that difference can cause the threads to break.
  • Are you using the proper thread for the job? Using a thin or light thread for sewing heavy fabric can lead to breakage.
  • Are you using the correct needle? Sewing knits with a sharp needle or sewing woven fabrics with a knit or ballpoint needle can also cause the thread to snap.
  • Is your machine threaded correctly? Incorrect threading can be another cause for thread breakage.
I hope this helps.

I would change the needle because sometimes there is a burr inside the eye of the needle. Now when you rethread, make sure that your presser foot is up, and then pull on the thread to make sure that the thread is seated in all of the guides.

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
