Try new needles and if that doesn't help then it would be a good idea to have the serger checked to see if it's out of time or that it might need a adjustment

My machine will chain without fabric but as soon as I place fabric and sew it will not make stitches on fabric


Be sure to use brand new needles in the machine (confirm they are the correct needles for the machine) and make sure they are installed facing the correct direction and pushed all the way up before tightened. Start a chain without the fabric, then when it's a couple inches long, raise the presser foot and add the fabric.

Could be your machine has a timing issue and probably requires service.

I have a Tiny Serger. The thread keeps coming out of the needle when I try to make a chain. What am I doing wrong?


first try changing the needles

make sure you have long thread tails and pull them behind the needle toward the back of the serger.

make sure there is no loose thread in the looper area

Elna serger is not creating chain stitch


Rethread! Your lose looper has a "hidden" eye all the way to the left. You will find task easy with serger looper tweezers and serger looper Threader; however, if you turn hand wheel to the left, the lower looper will slide in that direction. Now you will see that "hidden" hole now. It takes practice, but you can still thread it without the extra tools! Hope this helps and if it does, I will get point for if you give me rating since I offer my time free to help others. Jimmy

Serger won't chain off a stitch. Stitches won't chain and hold to fabric. Added new needle, rethreaded whole machine. Stitches won't connect to fabric or make a chain.


is it possible that the needles are in backwards?
it's very possible that the machine is out of time & would have to be taken to a sewing machine repair shop to be retimed

Why does my lower looper come unthreaded (not break) while serging?


Is the eye on the looper itself coming unthreaded each time this happens? I can't imagine how it would unless the eye itself is damaged. Are you chaining off at the end of the seam each time you stitch? If there is a chain of several inches then the looper should not be able to unthread.

Only thing I can think of is "are you raising the pressure foot and cutting the chain close to the foot at the end of each seam perhaps"? If so, you don't do this with a serger, you just chain off then cut the chain with thread snips or pull a good length of thread chain back in front of the cutting blade to sever it.

Maybe take a look at some of Nancy Zieman's videos on You Tube or some of the other serger videos there; there is lots of good information and sergers are much easier to learn visually.


If you think that there is definitely something wrong with the machine, you could always take it to your nearest Brother dealership and ask them to test sew on it, if it faults for them then they may be able to diagnose the cause quickly.

Won't form a chain stitch


You 910 serger doesn't have the option for a Chain Stitch. It is a 2, 3, or 4 thread serger. You can do a good number of different stitches but a chain stich is not one of them.

If what you mean it that it won't "chain off", meaning sew with no fabric beneath the foot as you gently pull the thread towards the rear of the machine, that could be for a number of different reasons. First, change the needles and unthread the machine and start over. If the threads are not exactly where they should be, your serger won't sew correctly. A great video on threading your machine can be seen at:http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/mediafiles/huskylock/index_en.html
