Can you post some better closeups of the knobs here?
It would seem your tension knobs are adjusted way too high or low.
Take off the tape and let me see what the broken part looks like too?

Okay here we go. Sorry for the blurriness.


The wheel on the top. You can't see from this pic but it's set at 7.



Wheel on the side-top-left.


Inside the bobbin case with the bobbin in...nothing too interesting when I take it out either.



The "supporting tape" removed.


Where it snapped off on the machine.


The spool holder unattached.

5 minute '2 part epoxy' for the thread holder, set the top one back down to 1 or 2 and the front to about the same.

Have you tried looking your machine's model number up online? I'll bet there is a manual or forum where the dials and adjustments are explained.

If the epoxy DM suggested doesn't work, they make white electrical tape...

I can't believe I didn't think of that...and I use the Internet for everything! I was looking everywhere for the manual that came with my machine, which is probably long gone since I bought it 5 years ago.

I'm going to pick up some epoxy tomorrow, but if that doesn't work then I will try to find some white tape...either electrical or duct tape Thanks!
