Why does the needle keep breaking?
There could be several reasons why the needle keeps breaking.
- Make sure the needle is correctly inserted with the flat side facing the back and pushed up into the machine as far as possible.
- The needle could have been damaged or bent.
If so replace with a new one.
- Make sure the fabric is not pulled excessively when sewing.
Let the feed dogs move the fabric.
Do not pull the fabric.
- The combination of needle size, thread size and fabric is incorrect.
Be sure to use the correct needle and thread size for the fabric you are sewing.
(example: Denim-size 16 needle and 40-50 heavy duty thread).
