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

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
here are some suggestions, if the suggstions don't help then it would be a good idea to have the machine check to see if something in wrong with the computer part of the machine 1. change the needle--make sure it's the right needle for the fabric 2. rethread the machine top & bobbin,,make sure to use every thread guide 3. make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case 4. clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint
try changing the needle--make sure it the right needle for the fabic being sewed also try rethreading the sewing machine top & bobbin make sure to use every thread guide make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case it's also possible that the sewing machines timing needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop
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.
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.
first you should turn off the machine and let in reset it's internal programs. Yes the feed dogs are very important. start your machine again...set the feed dogs...unthread and rethread teh machine from start to finish to include taking out the bobbin and replacing it. then make sure you bobbin winding in completely in Un using mode...
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.
