Sewing machine stopped making the stich

All of a sudden while sewing my machine stopped making the stitch. I've rethreaded it multiple times thinking it's threaded wrong but i'm doing it how i usually do it. the stitch just doesn't stay locked together and i do know know what to do. It's for a yamata FY14u4AD overlock machine

    i've already tried that multiple times. The loopers are threaded properly but it's still not making the chain. I feel like the loopers are catching the top needle. Any thoughts?

Unthread the needles, rethread the loopers properly, then rethread the needles. Make sure that all four threads are pulled securely into the tensions and retry.

The loopers must always be threaded before the needles or it will not chain.

What causes loose, loopy-looking stiching on the underside of the fabric?


Rethread the machine. Its almost always caused by poor quality threads or misthreading.

When i am sewing the stiches on top, but its at the bottom


change the needle --make sure it's the right one for the fabric
being sewed

rethread the machine top and bobbin

make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case

also check the top thread tension, if the stitches under the fabric
are loose adjust the top thread tension one number or letter higher
at a time and sew on a scrap piece of fabric till the stitches look
normal

try changing the needle--make sure it the right needle for the fabic
being sewed
also try rethreading the sewing machine top & bobbin

it's also possible that the sewing machines timing needs to be
checked at a sewing machine shop

I keep getting "check and rethread the upper thread" error message


Hi....I also kept getting the check and rethread upper thread message, I\'d sew about 15 stitches and it\'d stop. Here\'s what I did. On the left of the machine, in the back there is a screw....loosen that screw, take cover off, then lift straigt up and out on the cover that has the 3 on it in your threading seqence. Next, I started inspecting and cleaning the thread route from top to bottom. Lo and behold....I get to the place where you come down the front of the machine and turn to go back up and I spot a little slit in the plastic piece so, when I was threading the machine I guess I was pulling it to far to the left causing it to wear a little slit in that piece....so, I finished cutting it off with a utility knife, used an emery board to smooth it down, put the covers back on and it works GREAT!!!! Who would\'ve ever that it\'d be so easy and save me a bunch of money!!! I sure hope this helps someone.

Suddenly my brother xl-2220 is sewing strangely! The top stich is fine, no tensio issues, but when I look at the bottom stitch it isn't right! The stitch is very loose and looks like the pattern a snake...


totally rethread, and do this test, rethread with the presser foot up, pull the thread it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, pull thread, it should barely move. This will seat your thread in the tension discs, Also, don't be afraid to change your needle often.

This error indictaes that the upper thread is broken. If it is not the sensor is telling the computer the thread is broken. Try tightening the upper thread tension some and rethread the upper thread.

Machine is not making stiches


Probably nothing serious. I suspect it is incorrectly threaded. Check the needle is in right and rethread top and bottom according to the manual. There are some good youtube videos showing this if you do a search there.
