Putting second needle on a Juki MO 812 industrial overlocer

I have no idea how to insert the second needle for this machine. Actually, although I can use it as it came pre-threaded, should anything go wrong, I would not be able to re-thread it even though I have the manual. This is a second hand industrial overlocer that works beautifully but no one has shown me how to use it. Should I need to change the threads or a needle breaks, I'm stuck. Any ideas please ? I have looked on YouTube but found no step by step guide. Thank you

SOURCE: THREADING FOR JUKI MO 357

Put new needles in it.

Following the colors, thread the upper looper first, then the lower looper. Next thread the needles. Always thread in this order.

SOURCE: Just got a Juki MO-654DE. Threading the machine was relatively easy. I'm having problems threading the needles. Is there a trick to doing that?

Tweezers!! The ones with the angled tips.

Why does thread keep breaking when I try to sew?


First thing, install a brand new needle.

Second, try loosening the upper tension. The ideal tension is when the upper thread and bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric.

If the thread is constantly breaking, usually the cause is incorrect threading or the thread has jumped out of a guide, or is wrapping around something like the thread spindle. Remove the thread from the top of the machine, RAISE the presser foot, and rethread the upper thread from the beginning.

If the thread is shredding at the needle's eye and then breaking, it is usually an incompatibility of the thread, needle, and fabric or the tension is too tight.

This may help with needle/thread choices:

I need help with using my Lervia Sewing Machine


Needle breakage can mean that you don't have the needle inserted correctly, you have the wrong size needle for the machine, you are pulling the fabric instead of letting the machine take it on it's own. Thread coming off the needle is usually operator error... make sure you grasp both threads as you start your seam.

Also if you are certain your needle is correct for this machine... take it in for servicing by a pro... it is likely that the needle is striking something and breaking... that means it's out of time... or perhaps a bent part.

My bobbin thread won't pick up. Its a new machine and everything came attached. followed the instructions and no go.


Generally, this is because the needle is inserted wrong or because it's bent. In the first case, the top of the needle (called the shank) has a flat side-this has to be inserted so it faces the back or away from you.
In the second case, when a bent needle stops the top thread from picking up the bobbin thread. Even if you think your needle is fine, change it to see if this solves the problem.

Top thread isnt picking up the bobbin thread. when i crank the wheel counter clockwise the top thread actually wraps around the bobbin case. what am i doin wrong? im a first timer.


Use a fresh needle and make sure that you place the flat side to the rear when you insert it. Use a coin to turn the needle screw. Also, get a free downloaded manual from www.singerco.com
