Thread bunching up cannot see how to use tension when threading


Your issue arises first from threading the machine correctly. Once that is done, then the tension can be adjusted.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
Be sure to start with a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Set the tension to the midway point and test your machine.

If the top thread is showing on the underside of the fabric, you need to tighten the top tension.
If the bobbin thread is showing on the top of the fabric, you need to loosen the top thread.
Tension is a tug of war between the two threads. It is correct when the two threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

When threading machine the thread in the left channel seems to catch from that point on and when I finish threading the thread will break


Thread breakage is usually a thread tension problem unless the thread is rotten or defective, or there is a snag or blockage between the spool and the needle. There should be some sort of tension adjustment. Check your user's manual for proper threading procedure.

I cannot get the tension correct - big loops on the back with Gutterman all-purpose thread. Have cleaned tension discs and adjusted bobbin tension screw. Checked for correct bobbin and needle thread.


bird nesting ( big loops under material) is from the needle thread tension being too loose
thread the machine as if threading the needle but before threading the needle pull on the thread , there should be resistance to thread feed
if not the tensioner plates are not adjusting properly

How to thread the singer 20u33? The tension assembly is new, don't know where the wire is sposed to be...


When you thread the top thread, the thread will drop down on the right side of the tension mechanism and go around the bottom (clockwise) and up the left side. Grab the thread somewhere above the tension mechanism with your right hand and then pull the toward the right (as though you are going to close the circle around the tension disk. The thread should pull on the metal wire (spring) and your thread should pop into the correct position of the tension disk. When you release the thread, the wire spring should pop back to the left. Then you will continue threading through the remaining thread guides and the take-up lever.

Here's a service manual for your machine (in case you need one):

What else can I try to get the Overlock tensions correct on a Burnett funlock 003? I have re-threaded checked the threading and messed with the tensions to no avail


You haven't provided symptoms of what is happening with your machine, so this is just a general guideline.

Remove all the threads from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading. Be sure to thread each thread IN THE ORDER specified--threading out of order will guarantee a problem! When threading the tensions, always give each thread an extra little tug to make sure it is seated completely (with one hand, grasp the thread below the thread tree and the other hand below the tension disk and tug--it may make a "pop" as it seats). Verify that each thread pathway is correct.

Set the tensions to the midway point. This is the standard beginning point for overlock tension adjustment, although some tweaking may be needed because every machine is different.

If the machine is still not performing correctly with some tweaking of the tensions, you may want to take it for service.

Upper thread keeps breaking


The most common cause of upper thread breakage is incorrect threading. Remove all the thread, install a brand new needle, RAISE the presser foot, and then rethread from the beginning. (Verify with the owner's manual that the threading process is correct.) The other thing to check is the upper tension setting. The factory standard setting is usually the halfway point between the high and low numbers. Tweak the upper tension to achieve correct tension. Correct tension is when the upper thread and bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric. The upper tension is meant to be the most common method of tweaking tension. As such, a sewist should become comfortable with tweaking the upper tension.

Loopy thread during stitching


if loops appear on underside of fabric, make sure machine is threaded correctly (check instruction manual for threading). when presser foot is resting on feed dogs, needle thread should be quite tight when pulled through needle (needle should bend a little). if thread does not feel tight, check threading again and ensure thread is between tension discs (presser foot should be up for threading and then down to check tension). if threading is good and tension seting is at 5 but still not tight enough check no htread is caught in tension assembly. if tension assembly is clear try tightening needle thread tension to 6,7 or 8 and see if that helps.

if the above is correct check for damage to the needle hole in the needle plate and polish with fine emery tape if necessary.

if you still have trouble best see a technician for possible repair to bobbin case or hook/shuttle mechanism which you may damage trying to fix yourself.

Threading a husqvarna huskylock 1001L serger


Solution taken from "Handbook for Huskylock Sewing Machine Models 1001L/1000L/1000"

1. Raise the presser foot by using presser foot lever. When the presser foot is raised, the two thread tension discs in the thread tension control panel are released so that thread passes freely between them. Otherwise thread tension may not be correct.

Important! When threading the needle, always be sure to lift the presser foot lever, and also take care to thread in the proper order.

Threading order:
1. Upper looper thread (green)
2. Lower looper thread (blue)
3. Double chain stitch looper thread (purple) in case of 5 thread stitch or double chain stitch
4. Right needle thread (red)
5. Left needle thread or double chain needle thread (yellow)

Caution!
Because the left thread tension dial (yellow) is used for either the left needle or the double chain stitch needle, these needles will never be used at the same time.

Upper looper (green) sequence:
1. Thread holder (silver triangle openings attached to thread holder stand)
2. Thread guide (flat silver clips just behind thread tension disc)
3. Thread tension disc (circular knobs with numbers for tension setting)
4. Pull thread around upper looper guide and upper looper
5. Pull thread into hole of upper looper

Lower looper (blue)
Repeat 1, 2, 3.
4. Pull thread around guide (see color coded chart inside front serger cover).

Easy threading mechanism (for lower looper)
1. Pull out the lower looper threading lever
2. Thread the lower looper and position the thread on hook of the lower looper
threading lever.
3. Push the lower looper threading lever back to its basic position while
holding the end of the thread.

Caution:
When returning the lower looper threading lever, always make sure that the two
blue triangle marks (directional arrows) meet each other.

Right needle thread (red)
Left needle thread (yellow)
Important: Thread the needles after threading of lower looper and upper looper.
First raise the presser foot lever, and then thread the needle threads in order shown in color coded thread guide.
