SOURCE: need instructions on threading 4-434 overlock serger

Open up the front cover. There should be a diagram right there, and you want to thread your serger step-by-step per the color-coded diagram so that the needle is in time with the movement of the loopers. If you randomly go about threading it instead of in sequence, the threads will collide and you will create a jam. The usual threading order: Upper Looper, Lower Looper, Left Needle, then Right Needle. Do you have long serger tweezers? Do you have a Looper Threader? If not, these are great tools to assist you as the Lower Looper is threaded right to left- an eye all the way to the far left, so it helps to have the tweezers and Looper Threader to maneuver in this very tight area. Many new serger users don't realize that other eye is "hiding" and miss threading it! Hopefully, you have a manual with additional pictures to help guide you. If you need a manual, try allsewingparts.com and perhaps they have one specific to your serger. Note: When you insert your needles (make sure they are #11 and #14 specific for your particular machine), the left needle will be the same size as right needle, but will APPEAR higher once both are pushed up into each of their respective needle shafts. Note: Hold onto needles or put a piece of fabric under the area when changing them/replacing them because they can easily fall out causing damage to your machine. Hope this helps. Jimmy

SOURCE: thread an overlock machine

Viking makes a very good picture diagram. Since you have to thread it differently for every stitch the diagram would be your best bet and you would always have it to look at. Visit your local Viking dealer and they would be happy to show you and get you the diagram.

SOURCE: Hi! everyone, i wonder if someone can help me out

if it can cut even though it seems to be able to reach the blade may be dull, or they may have been put into a rest position, look for a lever when you open up the machine. I'll bet if you look at you tube you find people showing how to do a rolled hem, and for that you have to disengage the blade so you'll be able to see how it gets moved

SOURCE: Trimed material keeps curling up into the

perhaps you are trying to cut off too much material, rather than having the material on the edge, so the blade just neatens it up. Also, the blade may be blunt
