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.

Brother cs-80 tension issue


Remove the thread from the machine. Install a brand new needle.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread. Set the upper tension to the midway point.

Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case (make sure it is turning the correct direction) and thread the bobbin tensioner. Install the bobbin case in the machine.

Insert the fabric under the presser foot. Lower the presser foot. While holding the top thread tail with your left hand, manually turn the handwheel (always toward you, never away!) one revolution until the top thread has pulled the bobbin thread up. Raise the presser foot and sweep both threads under the presser foot toward the back (you can use a stiletto, a pencil, or some other tool to sweep the threads). Lower the presser foot, gently hold both thread tails with your left hand and slowly turn the handwheel (either manually or by motor) to form a couple of stitches. Then let go of the thread tails and continue sewing.

If it continues to cause thread nests or you have other issues, then your machine may need service.

Top thread keeps breaking, I've re-threaded to make sure it's right, wound and re-inserted a new bobbin, checked the needle to make sure it's not bent (as described in the manual) and put it back with flat...


Not sure if you noticed but if you thread a machine with the pressure foot down it will not thread correctly. There are two little things that sorta looks like symbols for the tension on most machines. (learned this when my viking 600e kept breaking thread and I put it in shop) If you thread the machine with the pressure foot down it closes the symbol things and the thread will break as you described. If you have completed that correctly check the spool of thread. You may have a burr on the thread spool that is catching the thread that too has happened to me.

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?

Hi, I am unable to do a overlock stitch , elna l1


Check with sewusa for a threading guide and manual.

Look inside the font door of the machine to see if there is a threading guide.

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.
