I hope someone can help me. I am trying to embroider snowflakes for gifts. Is there a way to adjust the thread break sensor (upper)? It does not beep and goes for quite a few stitches before it stops. My stabilizer is getting chewed up from the machine going so far before stopping.

A sensor is something the dealer can adjust.

If this is happening quite a bit, I'd say it's your thread and/or needle. What thread and needle are you using? You might have to slow your machine down.
