Singer Futura Quartet – Breaking Needles Every Time on Presser Foot

EquationApparel | Posted in Machine Embroidery on

Hi, I just got this Singer Futura Quartet machine less than a month ago. I have been able to embroider several pieces up until 2 days ago when every needle began to break off about 5-10 stitches in on the back end of the presser foot square. I have alternated between 4 different types of needs, different stabilizers, different threads and different fabrics. However, now every time I attempt to use it, the needle breaks in the same manner without fail. Any ideas on what could be causing this and can I fix it? Thanks in advance 🙂

    Breaking Needles

    Can you sew without breaking the needles?  Does this machne come with a darning foot and embroidery foot?  Is the foot iinstalled correctly?
