Why do my needles break?
Hopefully the needles did not break or burr the plastic bobbin case or rotary hook/point underneath. If the needles broke hitting the plate or foot, they all can be polished off with Crocus emory cloth from the hardware store before use. The reason needles can break is if the top thread gets caught anywhere in the top thread path and jerks the needle into the foot, plate, hook or bobbin case. As long as the top thread stays in tension, has smooth consistent delivery, and doesn't get caught on the spool, spool pin, spool cap, thread guides, tension discs, needle bar, etc., it will not pull on the needle to break it. You can test by threading top thread through the take up lever while presser foot lever is up, then let presser foot lever down and pull manually on the thread to see that the thread is down between tension discs and has strong pull on tension at #4 or #5, and is not getting caught anywhere. If you are using cone threads on the horizontal spool pin, switch to a vertical thread stand to the right of the machine. Organ needles are also shorter than Schmetz needles(that can drag the bottom of the rotary hook to break needles). You can also check timing by removing needle plate and bobbin case to see of the rotary hook point is coming around the back of the needle ABOVE THE EYE to catch the bobbin thread. Please advise what you find.
Why does my thread break?
Diane, have any of your needles either hit something underneath or broken off while sewing? If there are any needle burrs on the plastic bobbin case rim, rotary hook, needle plate or foot, they have to be polished off with Crocus emory cloth from the hardware store before thread will stop catching on the burrs, shreading or breaking.
The other thing that can cause thread breakage is needles if they are burred, bent or eye size too small for the thread you are using (go up a size to test). Is the top thread coming out of tension discs or getting caught on thespool, spool pin, spool cap, thread guides, etc. If you are using cone thread on the horizontal spool pin, switch to a vertical thread stand to the right of the machine that will not catch the thread. Also start with polyester thread with more tensile strength than rayon. Finally, check the needle clearance between needle and rotary hook by removing needle plate and bobbin case for manual inspection (they should not touch). Please advise.
I have owned the White 4400 embroidery machine for 7 years. It is a great little machine. The ones selling now, are they exactly the same or have they been improved any? Can you tell me if White will be coming out anytime soon with another machine like this one with larger hoops and a cap hoop attachment? Can you tell me who actually makes the White machine? Thank you for your help.
Liz, The White 4400 is exactly the same machine as when you bought. It was imported by Singer Viking Pfaff SVP for dealers, and is the same machine as MarieOsmond EM1 and Bernina H79. There are no anticipated changes in hardware, software or accessories. White 4400 works with Windows XP but not with Windows 7 or 8, unless you figured a way to do it. Below is the White 4400 machine page and the optional hoops that will work with your White 4400 (same hoop attaching system as Brother PE100-200). Brother has the next step up embroidery machine with hoop size 5x7" and optional 5x12" at Brother PE770 5x7" Embroidery Machine 11 Extras! USB Key, Case, 1000 Designs, 6 Threads, 27 Stabilizers & DVD, Let me know if you have any questions about larger sewing field embroidery machines. Thank you. John
Thank you so much for your help. I checked out the Brother PE770 but I like the fact that I can view everything on the computer screen with the White 4400. I do some stops and skip parts of designs and start again and was told I could not do that with the PE770.
The White 4400 has so many neat features that I am used to and was looking for a machine just like it except with bigger hoops. Now that I see I can get bigger hoops I will stick with it.
I bought a Singer Futura XL400 and after having it a week and not being able to make it work, it went back. In the mean time I sold my White and now I am getting ready to buy another one. Unless you can reccomend another one.
Liz, we do not have any such embroidery only machine with larger than 4x4" hoops, digitizing software and USB cable except for the White 4400.
If you tell me what your budget is I will look for larger hoop sewing and/or embroidery only machines with the same features as White 4400 but with digitizing software and larger than 4x4" hoops that will work on Windows 7 and 8. John
This machine is discontinued and the drivers have not been updated so it cannot be used with the newer laptops which have windows 7.
