SOURCE: thread keeps snapping on NEW Euro Pro 32-Stitch sewing machine

I also have the same sewing machine. The machine is not very user friendly and the instruction manual doesn't really illustrate the right way to thread the machine. For the bobbin, make sure you thread it through the two tiny holes in the small rectangular metal piece in the bobbin case. I had to use a dental floss threader and tweezers to thread the bobbin correctly, if you can believe it! As for the upper thread, follow the directions EXACTLY as illustrated in the manual. Don't miss the little loop underneath the machine or the tension will be wrong.

Also, use extra strong thread. I used a professional quality break-resistant thread from Germany for both the bobbin and top thread, and the machine works okay.

SOURCE: I purchased a Euro-Pro Shark 998A but the B looks the same

Go to this address

http://www.euro-pro.com/europro/faqdetail.aspx?modelno=998B

It does not list a 9988A, but I would imagine there is not much difference in how the threading and bobbin is done. This is a page of instructions as well as a manual to download. The manual is in Pdf format, so if you don;t hae acrobat reader, you'll need to go to www.adobe.com/acrobat and download it for free so that you can read the pdf file.



Good luck to you and Thank you for using Fix Ya!

SOURCE: threading instructions for the euro-pro shark mechanical machine

You can view the manual online at the euro pro web site. Although, I have the manual and I am having the same problem. It was working fine and now for some God only knows reason, I can't seem to thread it right again. This is extremely frustrating for me. The manual doesn't give written instructions there are just picture for you to use as a guide. Here is a link to the manual, I hope you have better luck than me.

How to thread this machine


Go to http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Euro_Pro_Sewing_Machine_Threading/euro_pro_1260_threading_diagram.htm. These are picture instructions on threading the 1260, which is probably the same as the 1260DX. When the model numbers are this close, there's usually little, if any, difference in threading the machines. There's usually only some additional stitch functions in the "deluxe" or DX model.

How to thread euro pro serger. threads aren'y interlocking


If the thread guide in printed on the side of the door or on the machine, you will need to follow the threading sequence.

Turn off the power.

Raise the thread antenna to it's highest position.

Open the tensions (set at zero). If the serger has automatic tensions, raise the presser foot as this also opens the tensions.

Turn the handwheel so the loopers are at their highest position.

Begin threading from the right to the left - lower looper is usually the first to be threaded.

After threading, set the tensions back to the normal setting and stitch a chain of thread and it should be knitted/interlocking.
