Re: Threading...

Take a look at the instruction manual on the JML site @

Even if you have the instruction manual supplied with the machine as the pdf has colour images that make it easier to follow rather than the over exposed black and white splodges in the supplied paper manual.

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

My 905 Huskylock was stitching just fine. I changed the thread last night by tying on new threads but one of the knots got caught in the tension plates. I cut it out and rethreaded the machine. It will...

It just may be that you haven't seated the thread in the tention disc, put on hand on each side of the disc when threading and push down to be sure its seated, I don't reccomed that you just 'tye' the treads to change colors, may I suggest that you practice threading your machine, it will come as second nature and really is very easy to thread

Hi i just got a new brother 1034D serger. And I'm

I found that I had to remove the stitch finger to thread the machine properly. Do remember to re-install it before starting to sew. If you are using 3-threads only, then remove and store the stitch finger.
Puzzled that this instruction is not in the threading section of the manual.

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.

My top stitch is flat, but the bobbin is bunching and looping extra thread. cotton fabric, polyester thread

What looks like a bobbin problem is sometimes the threading of the top thread.

If you threaded the machine with the presser foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter as it should.

Improper seating of the thread into the tension results in loopy stitching as the thread is not being guided at the proper tension to create a satisfactory stitch.

Try re-threading the machine with the presser foot up.

Sewing Machine: loose stitch that's easy to pull out.

Check that the upper and lower threading are correct. Check that the thread has tension from the bobbin case.

Top stitch looks good, bottom stitch is loopy

this is a common problem, don't worry it's easy to fix.  take the spool of thread off, remove the bobbin.  look for any stray thread pieces in or around the bobbin case, rethread the top of the machine and when you do, follow the threading guide precisely and ---here's the trick---make certain that the thread goes between the tension discs.

Thread tension

I have had this problem when the bobbin was wound wrong and also when the machine was improperly threaded. Check your manual to make sure you hit all the threading points, but I think the most common one i've missed that caused this was the metal loop you thread immediately before threading the needle.

Threading a husqvarna huskylock 1001L serger

Solution taken from "Handbook for Huskylock Sewing Machine Models 1001L/1000L/1000"

1. Raise the presser foot by using presser foot lever. When the presser foot is raised, the two thread tension discs in the thread tension control panel are released so that thread passes freely between them. Otherwise thread tension may not be correct.

Important! When threading the needle, always be sure to lift the presser foot lever, and also take care to thread in the proper order.

Threading order:
1. Upper looper thread (green)
2. Lower looper thread (blue)
3. Double chain stitch looper thread (purple) in case of 5 thread stitch or double chain stitch
4. Right needle thread (red)
5. Left needle thread or double chain needle thread (yellow)

Because the left thread tension dial (yellow) is used for either the left needle or the double chain stitch needle, these needles will never be used at the same time.

Upper looper (green) sequence:
1. Thread holder (silver triangle openings attached to thread holder stand)
2. Thread guide (flat silver clips just behind thread tension disc)
3. Thread tension disc (circular knobs with numbers for tension setting)
4. Pull thread around upper looper guide and upper looper
5. Pull thread into hole of upper looper

Lower looper (blue)
Repeat 1, 2, 3.
4. Pull thread around guide (see color coded chart inside front serger cover).

Easy threading mechanism (for lower looper)
1. Pull out the lower looper threading lever
2. Thread the lower looper and position the thread on hook of the lower looper
threading lever.
3. Push the lower looper threading lever back to its basic position while
holding the end of the thread.

When returning the lower looper threading lever, always make sure that the two
blue triangle marks (directional arrows) meet each other.

Right needle thread (red)
Left needle thread (yellow)
Important: Thread the needles after threading of lower looper and upper looper.
First raise the presser foot lever, and then thread the needle threads in order shown in color coded thread guide.

2nd needle/4th thread - threading confusion

With some sergers, but not many (singer 14u64 comes to mind), the top of the stitch will be an overedge that mates with the right needle thread, and the left needle thread will appear as a separate straight stitch. When you look at the underside of the stitch, the overedge will go all the way over to the left needle (the full width of the stitch). This is normal if you have this type of machine. Another stitch some sergers do (2/4 thread sergers) is a 2 thread chain thal looks like a lone straight stitch on both sides, and a 2 thread separate overedge.

As far as the threading of the takeup, it totally depends on your model. Always post your model number when you have questions as sergers vary greatly in design.
