Possibley need cleaning with canned air is best
maybe piece of broken needle in bobbin holder just use a q tip with a bit of oil on it and swab the area and the tension might need adjust ment but do the first two first and then make note of where the tension is and change only one thing at a time and try and if it does not work put it back and contiue until you get it right good luck

Hi. I have a Empisal 406E overlocker, can I use it as a normal sewing machine aswell? If so, do I need to use all 4 threads or only 2 like when you use a sewing machine? Thank you.


Not sure what you are trying to do with your serger. An overlocker will ALWAYS finish the raw edge of the fabric. However, you can certainly serge t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. Serging knits is fantastic because the serger stitch allows for fabric stretch without popping the thread. It is easy to sew patterns that require a small seam allowance, like 1/4". Just remember that the blades must ALWAYS be activated (trim off part of the fabric) or you risk breaking the loopers. You can use either 3 or 4 threads. Using 4 threads gives just a bit more security to your garment to prevent popped seams in active wear worn during sport events, etc. Using 3 threads is ok for garments that don't experience stress on the seams.

I've even made a quilt using jelly roll fabric on a serger. A serger is ok for this type of quilt because the pinpoint accuracy of strip quilting is not required as it would be for stitching together blocks that have points & seams that must match. It is very difficult to get very accurate seams on a serger, probably partly because it stitches so much faster than a sewing machine.

Lots of info on the internet...

I have a futura SEQS 6000. It sews perfectly fine but when I try to embroider the thread is either unthreaded or becomes tangled with the bobbin thread and doesn't finish the design.


indicates that the needle thread is not tight enough some embroidery threads are finer than normal threads so require an increase in thread tension

Top thread keeps breaking


Upper thread breaking is usually a sign of incorrect threading or tension too tight, although there are other possible problems:

Industrial Garment Printers Sewing Machines

When threading the upper thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat properly in the tension disks. Avoid old thread or bargain bin thread. If the thread is fraying and breaking at or near the needle eye, then try a different type of needle with a larger thread groove that will protect the thread from fraying on rough fabric. Also, check that the thread is not hanging up on something, ie the slit on the side of the spool where the thread tail is stored.

The bobin thread bunches up on the bottom side of garment.


Hello,
Try these solutions.

* Re-thread your machine as it may be threaded incorrectly.

* Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this feature.

* When you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting caught in your machine.

I hope this helps.

Elna sewing machine


Amy,
did you solve the problem with your Jubilee?
I would suggest that the problem may be not holding the two threads at the back of the needle plate with starting each new seam. Elnas really need you to hold the threads, don't let the tail get caught and pulled back into the bobbin holder area. Once you have one jam, you'll have minute threads you maybe can't see caught under the ring guard (black bit) and the jamming will keep happening. Also, make sure you only use Elna bobbins always with holes on the top.

If you've still got the Jubilee and are having issues with it, feel free to add more info, the other contributors comments about the bobbin being faulty are valid but I dont think your machine is worn out, just jamming. You can remove the bobbin holder yourself and clean underneath it and once you've done it once, and know how to line it and the ring guard back up, its pretty easy and will ensure that the bobbin area stays clean.
