Re: Threading machine

The machine is relatively simple to thread. This is what I do and I've had no threading problems. 1. Put thread spool on the spool pin and put spool guard over spool pin to hold spool onto pin. 2. Take thread and put it under the bent tab by the circle tensioner. bring the thread around the right side of the circle tensioner and bring around the front of the circle tensioner thing back to the top hook on the far left side of the machine. 3. Take the thread around the backside of the top hook think until it threads through the flat piece on the left side of it. 4. Bring the thread down through the first (right side) channel and under the plastic piece to the second (left side) channel. 5. Bring the thread up the second channel and around the moving thread holder and past it's flat metal piece to hold it. 6. Tuck the thread around the small wire thread holder below the needle screw. This may take a few passes to catch it. 7. Thread the needle from the front and run the thread between the teeth of the presser foot. 8. Put a bobbin in the bobbin case so that the thread pulls off the bobbin from the left side of the bobbin if you look at it from above. 9. There is a small channel in the bobbin case that is covered by the bobbin tension flat piece. Pull the bobbin thread through this channel and into the empty space where the needle thread will catch. 10. Place the bobbin case into the machine with the little set bobbin arm pointed to the sky so that it fits into the machine without wiggling to the right or the left. 11. Turn the, uhhh brain fart, the hand wheel until the needle comes back up with the bobbin thread hooked over the needle thread. Take a narrow thing, like scissors or a seam ripper and pull both threads until the bobbin thread comes up. Now your machine is threaded. Use these directions with the pictures in the book to get this machine threaded.

My Singer 14u44 serger machine is just cutting fabric and not sewing, I have checked the threading and tensions twice.

You still do not have it threaded right, if it is not forming a chain without anything being sewed, it is because either you are missing one of the guides or your upper looper is not threaded right. If, you do not have your manual, or it is still unclear, go to and look at their frequently asked questions and they show the threading pattern. I think that shows threading, too

I just changed my Kenmore serger's needle and it stopped making the overlock stitch. I rethreaded the machine twice and make sure the position of the needles is correct but it didn't help


If you have the operators manual for this serger, you should be able to follow the threading from the start successfully. Some machines have a better threading diagram on the machine itself.

The needles should have the groove facing the operator's position. They should also be fully inserted in their mounts. Most sergers do not release the thread tensions when the presser foot is raised, therefore, you must zero the tensions to make sure the threads are fully entered into the tensioners when threading anew. After threading, you must readjust your thread tensions to the desired tensions for the set-up you plan to use. Thread tensions should be recorded for each stitch set-up because each serger tends to be a bit different, and therefore, allows you to quickly adjust for the desired stitch needed. The different stitches are adjust and fine tuned by each individual thread tension.

Hope this helps

I have threaded and re-threaded this machine. the threaded keeps breaking and it is driving me nuts! I have followed the threading instructions and adjusted the tensioner with no help

Do you have good quality thread? And upper and lower thread is of the same weight? Put in a new needle. Also check how you are threading the machine, put your presser foot up and pull on the top thread, it should feed smooth, then put the presser foot down, now the thread should barely move when you pull on it. You can download a copy of your machine manual for free at and enlarge the diagrams to see it better.
