SOURCE: Juki blindstitch machine; model CM 636; needle sizes? and would it cause skipping?

If the problem started after you changed the needle size, may be,
otherwise, check your needle/looper timing, and distance between needle and looper.

SOURCE: Pfaff serger stuck

your needle bar has been pushed up and is out of adjustment. You need to take off the side cover, there should be a screw on the back of your machine holding it on. Remove this screw, and remove the cover.You may have to remove the light assembly to reach the screw on the needle bar. Once you can see the needle bar, rotate the handwheel until you can see the screw on the needle bar. Loosen this screw SLIGHTLY until you can turn the needle bar. Hold and rotate the needle bar back and forth as you push down slightly. This will lower the bar.Lower it about 1/4 inch. Adjust the needles by turning the bar so that they are straight across. Tighten the needle bar screw so that the bar doesn't move. Turn the handwheel to see if the threads will be picked up. If not, adjust until they are. Tighten the needle bar screw tightly,reinstall the side cover ,and tighten the screw. Change your needles.Rethead and sew.

SOURCE: Janome Needle plate and needles hitting something underneath

The broken pins are called chaining pins and are tricky for the home user to replace without risking damage to the needle plate as they are difficult to remove and the tiny burr used to hold them firm can easily open up and no longer grip the pin.
There are only a couple of things under the needleplate that are likely to collide with the needles. 1. Lower looper - with the needles 2. Both Loopers colliding with each other - not with the needles 3. Needle guards attached to lower looper - with the needles 4. Fixed Needle guard - with the needles
If you remove the needleplate and VERY gently turn the handwheel you should be able to see and feel where the collision is occuring and have a better idea of the issue.
I would strongly advise that you do not try to operate the machine until you are sure that the colliding components are adjusted. Broken loopers are approx $65 AUD and guards, tho' only about $20 AUD require some finesse in adjustment. Chain Pins approx $6 AUD
My recommendation is to speak with your local Janome dealer for advice and an approximate price to repair, replace or adjust as the case may be.
Your country's Janome website is certain to have a Dealer Locator page to list the nearest to you.
This is one occasion where it is sensible to call on the people who do these things routinely rather than try to DIY and make a more expensive hash of it.

SOURCE: White Serger 1934D not stitching

No, Sounds like the loopers are not passing properly to pick up the thread, from off the needles.

SOURCE: Replacing needle on Elna Pro 905 DCX serger

Try and loosen the screw, and use a magnet to pullout the broken piece. It likely slightly bent in there so you may need a pair of tweezers as well
Good luck!

I have a easy lock serger Model SL4300 and I need to know the needle size and what brand should I get, lost my manuel

This site shows Organ and Schmetz needles but most quality needle brands would be suitable for your machine. A standard 130/705H needle will work. Just be careful as I believe my machine recommends no needles larger than a size 90.

you might want to replace the knives
you might have the serger checked for a timing problem
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 of 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?

When we thread the serger . the thread is still skipping


Are you using the corfect serger system needles in it? Most domestic sergers will take the regular domestic needle 130/705X but work best with a serger needle with has a groove down the front as well as the regular back scarf. This helps with the thread pickup from the looper by the needles. Sergers also run much faster than domestic sewing machines so the tolerances are very fine.

My Bernina came with ELX705 needles and it does run better with these in it. Also you need to use mid size needles, don't go too small, probably a size 80 or 90 is best.

Check out this page for some good info as the different serger manufacturers do have their own recommended needle sometimes. http://sewingmachine221sale.bizland.com/store/page78.html

Always refer to your manual (or ring the manufacturer if lost) to double check what needle they recommend be used in your serger, it does make a difference.

Is there any other thing I can do to stop the thread from the upper looper from breaking after about 30cms of sewing. there is no sign of it being about to break. I have changed thread, needles and...


it could be due to one or more of the following

  • Threading is not correct.
check that bobin is not snagging thread,
remove bobin and remove any dust and fluff from bobin area
  • Needle is wrong size.
  • Needle has been inserted wrong.
  • Needle and thread does not match.
  • Starting to stitch too fast.
  • Thread take-up lever has not been threaded.
  • Correctly thread machine.
  • Replace needle with correct size.
  • Properly insert needle.
  • Start machine at a medium speed.
  • Check threading order.

I hope this was helpful

What is the size of the needle used in the white superlock 1934D


This is a very highly regarded serger. Check out the reviews on http://sewing.patternreview.com if you're interested--but they are all extremely positive.

I also checked out the White Sewing Machine site--the three sergers they currently sell all use regular sewing machine needles.

Based on what I read on both sites, I believe your machine also uses regular sewing machine needles (not all sergers do, BTW). To be absolutely certain, you can call the White Help Line (l 800-331-3164, Monday through Friday 8AM to 5PM, EST).

If your serger uses regular sewing machine needles, then the size of the needle depends on the type of fabric you're sewing. Sizes 8 to 10 for lightweight fabrics, 12 to 14 for medium weight fabrics, and 16 to 18 for heavy weight. Use ballpoint needles for knits, jeans needles for denim, and universal needles or sharps for woven fabrics.

I have a baby lock ea-605 serger


Assuming that (a) you have tried installing new needles, (b) the new needles are the correct system for the serger and the right size (typically size 14 for medium-weight fabrics, size 11 for lighter-weight fabrics), (c) the needles are installed correctly (inserted all the way up into the needle bar and facing the proper direction), then your machine is likely out of time and / or has a defective part such as an upper / lower looper. That will require professional attention to correct.
