Question about Sewing Machines
I have operated this serger for many years and never had this problem. I have replaced both needles, oiled the machine, cleaned out all the lint possibilities and rethreaded the machine numberous times just in case something was threaded wrong. All to no avail. I would appreciate any help you could give me in solving this problem as I live out of town and cannot easily access a repair centre. Thank you.
Make sure the left needle is inserted correctly into the needle
holder, if you have flat sided needles make sure that the flat side is
put correctly to the side it suppose to be.
check the tension on the left needle, it may be too tight

I have found with any serger I have used that you have to cut the looper (bottom) threads before re threading the needle threads. You then rethread the loopers.
If you don't do this, the needle threads keep breaking. Hope this helps.

Sounds like the timing is a little out.
If you remove the needle plate and turn the handwheel manually watch for the lower looper as it swings behind the Left needle....the needles ought to rise by only about 2mm before the looper passes......the looper must pass the needle above the eye to catch the thread, and be so close as to be barely touching the rear of the needles......if the left needle thread is not picked up, it may be the timing, or the distance between needle and looper.
For the uninitiated, there are a myriad of variables in correctly timing an overlocker (serger), and without the manual to refer to the correct parameters, you will rapidly descend down a road of despair....if you move a looper to advance or ****** the timing, you risk looper collision and a broken looper is almost as much as a service, so my advice is do the test to see if the timing is the likely culprit, and if so, take the opportunity to give the old girl a treat.
If you need to save for a while to do it, just use the 3 thread option for the time being.

When the thread breaks too often, try these, that goes for all sewing machines
1. Replace the needles,
2. Loosen slightly the tension of the needle threads.
3. The top threads are to thin,
4.The sewing (rotary) hook or looper, has burs,
5. Wrong threading

The tread only breaks in the needle. what can i do . i don't get to sew anything . I tread the needle and get everything ready and start the machine and as quickly as that the tread is broken and the machine has not sewn at all.
