Recently, my bobbin thread has been breaking. When I pull out the bobbin case, the thread is tangled around the center post and UNDER the brake spring. I have made sure that the tension is correct and that it is threaded correctly. When I put in a new bobbin and put it in my hand, the thread pulls out just fine, but after stitching a short distance, the thread will break again, and be caught under the brake spring. Does this mean I need a new brake spring? If so, where can I purchase the part? I have an Avante 18" with no computer. Thanks in advance for your help!
