Question about Kenmore 16622 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Thread keeps coming unthreaded in the machine

I have a kenmore 16622 mchanical serger. The thread on the green, keeps coming undone. The thread will literally come out of the last hole of the threaded part. After threading the machine entirely, I am not sure where all the threads should lead before atempting to serge on a scrap cloth. This is getting a little fustrating, as I have threaded the machine countless times. How do I solve this reoccurring problem? Please Help.

The green thread needs to go under the brown thread between the clip and the brown needle. I had this problem too.

I have a singer ultralock 14u34 - the right needle thread keeps coming undone. anyone have a fix for this??

"Coming undone" What do you mean? Is it breaking while sewing? Is it too short and is slipping back through the needle?

If it's breaking, try changing the needle. If i's slipping back... give it some length when you thread.... and at the end of a seam Run it out... 10 inches before you cut it off close to the fabric. That little bit of thread waste will make you feel much better about your serger.

I have been using my serger then suddenly it would cut and not serge. I am still unable to thread the "green" right hand threader.

Apparently either you have no needle threaded to lock the stitch or both loopers aren't correctly threaded. You must thread your UPPER looper first (don't know what color yours is), LOWER looper next, RIGHT needle next and last the LEFT needle if you are using the 4 thread overlock stitch. It sounds like you are having trouble with your lower looper. Look for the lower looper threader to help you thread it. Your manual should show you a picture.
