Thread keeps coming out of the right hand side needle as I am over-locking. Could you advise what the problem could be? Thanks


May be threaded incorrectly or not seated in the tension disk.

Best course is to remove all the thread from the machine.

RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning making sure each thread is threaded in proper order and that each thread sequence follows the manual.

When threading each tension disk, grasp the thread between the thread tree and the tension disk with one hand and with the other hand grasp the thread below the tension disk and give it a little tug to make sure it seats properly.

Be sure to pull the thread tails under the presser foot and toward the back of the machine before beginning to stitch.

I cant get tension on the upper thread


Consult your owner's manual for the proper threading sequence--your machine could be threaded incorrectly..

Totally remove the upper thread. BEFORE re-threading, RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat properly in the tension disk. Be sure to lower the presser foot before trying to sew.

Sewing machine won't raise the bobbin thread


Hi. The two main reasons why the top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread is either the needle is inserted wrong or the needle is bent. Since your machine was sewing properly until the thread broke, I'd be inclined to think the needle may have gotten bent. Sometimes this can happen if you sew over a pin.

Change the needle (making sure the flat side of the needle shank is inserted properly for your machine) and see if that solves the problem. Let me know if it helps, ok?

I cant set the tension on my PFAFF 7570 the thread keeps


First make sure your needle is in correctly. Then make sure you are threading the machine correctly especially make sure you thread the take-up lever. Make sure your tension dial is at a 4 to 5. if this does not work, let me know

Threading Memory Craft 8000


Hold the thread taut between your left hand and right hand. Pull it through #1(all these spots are numbered on your machine) and press down on the thread with your right index finger to guide the thread through #1. Keeping the thread taut, continue to pull the thread through the rest of the guides with your left hand until you reach the needle.

Lower looper


It is impossible for a looper to come unthreaded if you are holding one end and the other is still feeding off the spool. Somewhere a thread broke - must be either the upper looper or the needle. Try completely re-threading your machine. Many machines have an "order" they prefer to be threaded. Try starting from the right tension guide and work to the left.
