Why does the upper looper thread keep busting?


Quite possibly the machine is not threaded correctly, the tension setting for that looper is too tight (could be the upper looper tension disk is stuck or dirty causing the thread to hang), or the thread is looped around something like the thread tree.

Replace the needles. Remove all the thread and re-thread from the beginning. Be sure to RAISE the presser foot before threading. Make sure to thread the threads in the correct order.

Having difficulty trying to determine what stitch you are using--only 2 threads like a flatlock? Most people start out with a 3 or 4-thread overlock stitch which is probably the most often used. Once that is mastered, then move on to other specialty stitches.

If you've never had a serger before, you are in for a challenge. If possible, see if you can find a hands-on beginner class. A serger is very different from a sewing machine and is a very picky unit to try to master because it can do so many things.

First suggestion would be install a brand new needle, remove all the threads from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. When threading through the tension disk, give each thread an extra little tug to make sure it seats. Thread each in the specified Order. Threading out of order will most certainly guarantee failure. Then verify the thread path is correct for each.

You might try a different stitch. If it works, then I would suspect the problem has to do with a threading issue for the particular stitch you are trying to create. The following links may be helpful.

Hi i just got a new brother 1034D serger. And I'm


I found that I had to remove the stitch finger to thread the machine properly. Do remember to re-install it before starting to sew. If you are using 3-threads only, then remove and store the stitch finger.
Puzzled that this instruction is not in the threading section of the manual.

Good diagram showing how to thread a 4 thread Juki 644d serger we do not have a manual machine is not clear


You can download a free threading guide here - http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Juki_Sewing_machine_threading/Juki_MO_644_Threading_Diagram.htm

The same site also sells manuals.

Threading Tips:

Have the thread antenna at it's highest position.

Set the tensions to zero.

Have the presser foot up while threading.

When you thread a serger for the first time, or if you are having a threading problem, use a different color thread for each guide. This can quickly indicate where the problem lies.

Once the stitch is satisfactory, change to the color you prefer - but this way is the easiest - cut the thread near the thread cone and tie off with the new thread. With the tensions at zero, slowing run the serger until the new thread appears. You will need to stop as the knots approach the needles and thread them by hand.

Do the tie-off before running out of thread and this will save a lot of time and stress.

White 's serger


Even though the video is busted, have you tried taking it to a store like Radio Shack and having them try to put the information on DVD for you?

My VHS tape was fine but I put it on DVD and the instructions are quite good and very helpful.

3 thread overlocking (serging) is no different t 4 thread, except you remove one or other of the needle threads.

The stitch width is then controlled by two variables,

the manual width dial selector, and
your choice of either the right or left needle

Suggest yo play with width selector on a scrap of your project fabric to achieve the look you are after.

2nd needle/4th thread - threading confusion


With some sergers, but not many (singer 14u64 comes to mind), the top of the stitch will be an overedge that mates with the right needle thread, and the left needle thread will appear as a separate straight stitch. When you look at the underside of the stitch, the overedge will go all the way over to the left needle (the full width of the stitch). This is normal if you have this type of machine. Another stitch some sergers do (2/4 thread sergers) is a 2 thread chain thal looks like a lone straight stitch on both sides, and a 2 thread separate overedge.

As far as the threading of the takeup, it totally depends on your model. Always post your model number when you have questions as sergers vary greatly in design.
