SOURCE: The top needle unthreads after just a few stiches.

Are you saying that the thread is breaking?

CAUSES of upper thread breaking

needle is in backwards
improperly threaded
tension to tight
needle bent or blunt
thread to coarse for size of needle
needle too long for machine
burr on needle
tension discs worn so that thread works in grove
neele too fine for size of thread and fabric
lint or dirt around bobbin case holder
irregular sewing speed
AND THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS:
threads not properly pulled back under pressure foot when starting to sew
This means, Have enough of the upper and lower thread pulled to the back and hold for the first 2-3 stiches,

Do this every time and it will become second nature and you will do it automatically

SOURCE: I have an older model

Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and see if they can sell you that part. I am sure that they can because they do not change the parts that much on the machines. Good luck

If it's just blue thread, then chances are you've got a bad spool of thread. Try a different color of the same type. Otherwise, take the thread off the top of the machine, clean it according to the recommendations in the manual, then rethread from scratch, carefully, according to the manual. Bad needle, bad thread and threading problems are the most likely causes. The final set of likely causes is a burr or sharp spot on one of the eyes thread runs through, or on the needle's eye, or presser foot or needle plate (=throat plate). Burrs can be *gently* polished off with a piece of crocus cloth.

Thread breaking at loupers on overlock machine singer


If it's the lower looper thread breaking, the cure is to unthread the eye of the needle(s), rethread the lower looper, then rethread the needles. Sergers have very specific internal crossings that are easiest to do if the various parts are threaded in a particular order. Typically, you thread the upper looper, then lower looper, then the needles. If you try to deviate from that without knowing exactly what you're doing, it tends not to work well.

In general, most serger troubles, especially for beginners, trace to minor misthreadings. It's easier, in my opinion, to rethread the entire machine from scratch than look for the minor error that's catching you up. And you learn the threading pattern well as a special bonus. <g>
If it's not cureable by rethreading a couple of times from scratch, the next thing to do is put in new needles, right way around, and rethread again.

SERGER HAS BEEN RETHREADED AND HAS A NEW NEEDLE BUT WILL ONLY SERGE FOR ABOUT 1.5 " and THE THREAD BREAKS AND LOWER LOOPER COMES UNTHREADED.


Serger thread breaks

1. Is the serger threaded correctly?

2. Is the needles inserted correctly?

3. Is one of the needles bent or damaged?

4. Is the tension adjusted too tightly?

5. Is the tension adjusted to accommodate thickness of thread being used?

6. Are you using inferior quality thread?

7. Is the thread feeding off the cone/spool freely?

8. Is the needle size correct for the type of fabric being used?

9. Are the needles being used the correct one for the serger?

10. If all of the above suggestions don't help then the serger needs to be checked for a timing problem at a sewing machine repair shop.

Serger problems


I love/hate my serger! Is thread stuck anywhere below? Bent needles? Are the needles in correctly and tightly? Is the machine greased? Unthread it, rethread. After all of this, it should work. Good luck. My simple old singer didn't do this but it wore out and the Viking is temperamental!

I have a Singer Merrittlock Differemtial Feed 14u244 Serger complete with manuals. However, none of the manuals or brochure have instructions on where to oil the machine. Therefore I need lubrication...


Page 40 of the manual shows three oiling points on the rear of the sewing surface to be oiled: two holes in the surface and the pivot point for the arm. These are marked with "2-3 drops"

It is equally important to regularly remove all lint from the cutting blades, around the loopers and behind the covers as lint will absorb any lubricant present. I also clean my blades with a cloth with a bit on oil on it every so often to remove all lint and leave an oily film on the blades.
