Make sure the thread has long thread tails of 4 to 6 inches long
and have the thread tails pulled behind the needle before starting
to sew.

Husky 910 overlocker..left needle will not sew stitches...does not unthread just won't form stitches


Be sure to install a brand new needle. Verify it is the correct needle for your machine and it is installed facing the correct direction.

Remove all the thread from your machine. (Clip the threads below the thread spools, RAISE the presser foot, and gently pull all the threads DOWN through the needle--NEVER up!)
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify that you are threading each thread in the order specified in the manual--failure to do so will cause your machine to malfunction.
When threading, give each thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk.
Set all the tensions to the midway point for a 3 or 4 thread overlock.
Test your machine.

If the left needle still fails to stitch, then your machine may need a timing adjustment.

How do I get my Elna 7000 to sew as when I thread the needle and start sewing - the thread is somehow pulled out of the needle?


If you haven't already, install a brand new needle. Be sure to use good quality thread--no old stuff or bargain bin variety.

Remove all the thread from the machine.

Raise the needle until it is at the highest point it will reach before it begins to lower.

RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--verify the thread path is correct. Pull at least 5 inches of thread tail through the needle.

Check that the bobbin is installed correctly.

Set the upper tension to somewhere around the midway point between high & low number.

How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

When you begin to stitch, gently hold both thread tails with your left hand and begin stitching slowly to start.

Top thread keeps coming out of needle. How do I thread top thread?


Be sure to pull at least 4 to 6 inches of thread through the needle's eye before beginning to sew. Pull the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric BEFORE beginning to sew.

How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread (This works for regular everyday straight stitching too not just design stitches.)

Then, BEFORE taking the first stitch, hold both thread tails with the left hand and then slowly begin stitching. After a couple of stitches, let go of the thread tails and continue to sew.

If you need instructions on how to thread your machine, search the internet for a manual:

Make + Model + the word "Manual"

or look for videos on YouTube to help with the threading process.

for the fabric being sewed.
also make sure the needle is turned the correct way in the needle

Bernina activa 210 won't zigzag and has bobbin issues on straight stitch


it's very possible that the machine is slightly out of time & needs to be service at a sewing machine shop
is the fabric & thread & needle compatable with each other?
did you use every thread guide when threading the machine?
is the bobbin in correctly?
is the bobbin warped?

Needle won"t stay threaded


that use to happen to me on my sewing machines, I would rethread the machine to make sure the thread is not caught on anything like the thread spool, or around anyone of the thread guides

also for both top & bottom threads, I keep a thread tail of 3 to 6 inches & before I start sewing I pull the thread behind the needle to the back of the machine & the I put the fabric under the foot & start sewing & now I don't have that problem anymore
