if thread is good quality you may have a sharp groove in your needle plate hole from needle breakage. if so, polish with emery tape.

Your bobbin is probably too loose. When you set a new bobbin, stop every now and then and try with your fingers nail if it's nice and tight enough. Not extremely tight, but tight, not loose and moves easily when you set your finger between the threads.

With most fabrics (99%) the plate is fine at the the top position, just with very thick and "fragile" (satins etc) you might need to adjust it.

Settings: Tightest tension for the thinnest materials, more loose for the thicker ones, better have a test piece, it rarely goes under 5 anyway.

Hi i have a empisal 550d overlocker . I have difficulty with cotton breaking after sewing for a few seconds. Can you help please ?


Could be the tension is set too high on that particular thread tensioner.

If it is not the tension, then this is the first thing to try (I know, it's painful but 99% of the time takes care of my issue): Remove all the threads from the machine, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and then rethread from the beginning. Verify that you are threading each in the "proper" order and that the threadpath for each is correct.

If it is a needle thread, replace with a brand new needle. Try a different brand of thread or spool on that particular threadpath. AVOID old or bargain bin thread. Check to make sure that particular thread is not hanging up on a burr, a sharp spot, or looped in the thread tree, etc. that catches the thread and holds it from advancing through the path.

The manual should be helpful:

It is always best to start out with brand new needles.

Before beginning to thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot throughout the threading process. This releases the tension disks so the thread will seat properly.

Follow the thread order when threading or your machine will most likely never work properly. Usually, it would be the upper looper first, the lower looper next, and then the needles. However, your manual should clarify that. Also, when threading each, be sure to give each thread an extra little tug when it goes through the tension disk to make sure it seats correctly.
