Question about Sewing Machines
Many problems can cause a serger to skip. Start with the correct new needles and good quality thread. Skips can be tension a clearance or timing issue or the amount of thread pulled out by the thread guides. This is not something most consumers can repair. Even with the service manuals they can be difficult. I have spent thousands of hours working on sergers.and skipping at high speed can be difficult to solve. Some brands are more user friendly to service. This like will show some of the common settings and tools needed for a serger service.

SOURCE: skipped stitches
Change the needle first and make sure it is inserted correctly. Use good thread i.e.: Guterman or Metler are some. If you are using a stretch material then put a stretch needle in the machine. If you do all this and it still skips then you may have a mechanical problem with the machine. The machine is "out of timing". Have a good tech. look at it. This happens quite frequently on "inexpensive" machines. Sorry.

First, change the needles making sure to use the el705 needle system. Second, make sure the subsidiary looper is engaged properly (plugging up the upper looper hole). Also make sure the needles are all the way up in the machine. This should do it or it may need to be adjusted but the Evolve is a very, very reliable machine. Hope this helps...

Testimonial: "Thanks I am going to try this as soon as I can, but right now occupied with a job with my industrial machine. My only issue may be with the needle."
Change needles if they have done a few hours. Ales use ballpoint if seaming stretch fabrics. Also you can get EL 705 needles, which have a longer scarf (groove at back) which helps with the loopers catching the needle thread. Or SUK is the stretch type with this longer scarf Also if you are using cheaper thread cones, try a better quality with smoother finish and consistent weight, this will help too. However if this doesn't resolve issue, your looper timing might need adjustment.
