Step away from the machine mam and no one will get hurt!!!
It's been demonized that's my story and I'm sticking with it! Seems like it might be time to take it in to the repair shop. I"ve cleaned it twice, changed the needle three times, and gone through a butt load of thread types and weights and it's still breaking thread. The thread seems to get snagged in the arm that goes up and down and it's breaking there.
Who knows what it's problem is.
