It sounds like you the thread is passing a place with a burr, it could be in the needle (replace needle) or on the stitchplate (maybe a bent needle hit the stitch plate and put a knick in it, a sewing repair man can sand it out). Or you don't have the tension right. Or you may have cheap thread that is not strong enough. I hope some of these suggestions are helpful.

SOURCE: thread keeps breaking

Your machine isn't threaded properly. Check to make sure #1, you have it threaded right and #2 the thread on all 4 spools is in between the tension dials. Good Luck and Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Thread keeps breaking

With the foot in the down position, can you pull thread through without any hangups? And I'm assuming it's the top thread you're speaking of. The other obvious thing to look for is any burrs or deformations on the hook. Any needle strikes or other rough spots will cause thread to break quickly. Also look at the needle plate for rough spots.

SOURCE: thread keeps breaking and thread sometimes

I am guessing here because I don't know what kind of thread you are using but, I am guessing that you have something in the upper tension discs causing the thread to not have tension, first I would recommend if you can see in to the disc put the foot in the up position and and blow out the disc. If this doesn't work take it to you local dealer and have the tensions adjusted, also look at the needle plate and see if there are marks in the hole, if there are it would be wise to either clean them out or get a new needle plate they will severely affect free motion

First Thread breaks on nelco 928 why?


Remove all the threads.
Replace the needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify each thread is in the correct thread path.
ALWAYS THREAD each in the order specified or you will continue to have problems--for a lot of machines, the order is Upper Looper, Lower Looper, then needles.
Check the tension on that particular thread--too tight, it will break.

Breaking thread after about an inch usually indicates it is mis-threaded--a guide has been skipped or threaded out of order or the thread may be wrapped around something.

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.

Why the thread cracked with when i sticked with the machine


Thread breakage could occur for several reasons.

First, try a brand new needle.

Second, use only good quality thread--NOT old thread or bargain bin varieties.

Third, when threading the upper thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot throughout the threading process.

Verify that the thread path is correct (consult the owner's manual). Incorrect threading will usually break the thread.

Check that the upper thread tension is set at the midway point between the high & low numbers.

Top thread keeps breaking


Upper thread breaking is usually a sign of incorrect threading or tension too tight, although there are other possible problems:

When threading the upper thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat properly in the tension disks. Avoid old thread or bargain bin thread. If the thread is fraying and breaking at or near the needle eye, then try a different type of needle with a larger thread groove that will protect the thread from fraying on rough fabric. Also, check that the thread is not hanging up on something, ie the slit on the side of the spool where the thread tail is stored.

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.
