SOURCE: thread wont overlock

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

All sergers thread the same way and sergers have to be threaded in a certain order. I made a jingle out of it...
upper looper
lower looper
right needle
left

It would be best to have a tweezers handy to help with the thread and threading.

always be sure the lower looper thread goes over the top of the upper looper then out the back. I would be surprised if your thread guides are not color coded.
If you look at the top thread guides or the spools. First from left to right thread the 3rd spool, then the fourth spool. Then you thread the right needle (the second spool) then the left needle (1st spool.
The lower looper can be tricky because you have to thread it from the back of the looper to the front.
Pull the threads out the back from under the foot. Then go ahead and run it slow watching to see if it starts making a chain. It should. If not do it over again.
Good luck

I have a YAMATA fy14u4ad, but I don't have the book to tell me the thread setting so what should the thread setting be for all 4 threads


Assuming this is a 4-thread serger. The thread tension setting will depend on which stitch you are making. A standard 4-thread overlock stitch would generally have the tensions set in the middle. FWIW, the tension in this setting is correct when the threads meet in the middle of the fabric. It should neither be off the edge of the fabric or so tight as to create a puckered edge.

Help plse, after threading it dont make the overlocking stitches. New machine, help with right way to thread machine and the smaller detail of threading.


Your machine is either not threaded correctly, or the individual threads have not been threaded in order. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine. You must follow the instructions exactly or the machine will most likely never work properly. Can you at least get a training class on your machine? A class is indispensable, especially when it comes to using a serger.

Even if it is not the same model, these instructions may be helpful.

Sewing machine stopped making the stich


Unthread the needles, rethread the loopers properly, then rethread the needles. Make sure that all four threads are pulled securely into the tensions and retry.

The loopers must always be threaded before the needles or it will not chain.

The easiest way to get your threads adjusted and learn which thread does what is to thread the machine with 4 different colors. Set your tension dials at 4,3,2,1 from left to right. This is the starting point. Sew on a test strip and look at the threads. You can then adjust the correct tension dial according to the thread color. This is a great way to get the machine set back to correct tensions as well as a learning tool to figure out what each thread looks like so you can adjust later when using all one color.
