Question about Sewing Machines
Ive re-threaded threads 3 & 4 so many times but its not forming the stitch properly and eventually the threads break, particularly the 4th one. (1 & 2 are totally fine). It looks to me like maybe the needle that holds thread 3 isn't catching the loop properly, but it may be something else like that... ive been looking at it for hours! Please help! thanks :o/
Hiya Fiona, i think your problem may be that the tensions are not correct. Try pulling the tread with your hands to see if they are too tight or too loose and either tighten or loosen tensions accordingly. Hope i was of some help to you, kind regards.

Sounds as though you may have a burr or rough spot on the hook where the bobbin inserts. Run your finger along the edge of the hook to see if there are any rough spots.I'm sure you're going to find at least one from the time you broke the needle.Once you locate it, remove it with an emery stick or small sharpening stone. Polish it so that it is smooth. Should work okay.

Couple of things I could think of: tension disks need cleaning, there is a site that tells how to clean them, maybe 2 as I recall. Other thing is it is a much older serger, (I have one I am slowly working on to bring up to working level), so it could be that a tension spring internally has lost its tension. It might need a trip to the repair man if that is the case. Another thing is are you using correct needles for the machine? Have you changed them recently? Even new needles can be bad, so if you have to change three times to triple check it can be worth it.
