Question about Toyota TL-432DE Mechanical Sewing Machine
Lower looper thread continually breaks. I have had this overlocker for some time now and have used it successfully on all fabrics, I have tried to thread,just the lower looper needle, both the looper needles and all the needles in order but no success, it makes just 2 or 3 stitches then the same thread breaks. Please help I am now getting quite desperate over such a simple thing.
I was having this very same problem with my lower looper . I had been using the one needle stitching all afternoon and I was doing quite nice stitching. then I decided to put the right needle back in and do some overlock stitching and guess what I spent the next two hours fighting the looper problem. I had completely re-thread this machine at least 20 times now. I decided to take the needle out and re-insert it and re-thread it one more time (right lower looper- then upper looper- right needle- then left needle) was careful to pull all threads to the back and under the presser foot for about 6 inches.
Held on to the thread, lowered presser foot and did the chaining stitch. BINGO it didn't break, tried it with a piece of cloth and Perfect stitches. I have a Babylock BL402 and used tension settings left to right
4-3-3-3 and default settings for the rest.
Hope this helps someone someday.

sometimes the needle plate gets a burr on it which will break the thread when sewing. Usually 2 screws hold the needle plate on and remove those and pull the needle plate off. Take a close look at the hole that the needle travels into and see if its a little rough on both side. If so you can use a file on it to smooth it back down.
