Thread getting caught below and locks up machine.


Tale the metal case out that holds the bottom reel, there should be a tension adjustment screw, use a small screwdriver or thin knife, turn it anticlockwise, should loosen the thread, this should sort it. Clean out all the bits of thread of course.

My serger keeps rolling the edge as I serge. I've tried to make several adjustments. Where do you get instruction manuals. Is it online?


Possibly you need to adjust the knife. It sounds like the knife is positioned too far to the right which is causing the cut fabric to extend further than the edge of the stitching. The thread chain is probably so tight against the edge of the fabric that it is folding it over.Move the knife a little to the left and try it again. If the thread chain is hanging past the cut fabric then the knife was moved too far to the left.

I am trying to do a rolled hem using a singer ultralock 14sh654. Do I disengage the knife? The stitches are uneven and some are quite loose no matter how much I adjust the tension. I am positive I...


no, you need the blade in place and cutting to give an even cut fabric edge. Set up for a three thread using the right hand needle, take out the left hand needle. move blade over to the right so it is cutting wide. Most overlockers there is also a thread finger you need to change on the foot, or a little lever you flick to move this finger forward into the stitching area. Check this on your manual as each make is a bit different.
If you can source it, put wooly nylon thread into the upper looper (knot it onto existing thread and just chain it through, the knot should go through the looper eye fine). Now turn the tension on top looper down so it is looser and tighten up tension on bottom looper, so needle 5, top looper 2 and bottom looper about 7.

Now test serge, the fabric cut edge should be wider than the overlocking seam so the fabric rolls under inside the stitching. Adjust the two looper threads so that this is happening, you want the bottom looper thread to nest right up against the needle stitch and the top looper thread to wrap all the way around too.

Once you've got this happening, turn the stitch length down to 0.5, to close the stitching right up. On some fabrics you'll need to adjust the differential feed too if the fabric is "waving" a bit.

Uneven stitches or sometimes loose when serging could indicate that one of the tension devices is faulting, so if this machine is not new and its doing this, it could need a service. Can you get a regular smooth three or 4 thread seam out if it???

It is always good to just recheck the threading path, make sure the thread aerial is up and that a thread hasn't got caught back on the thread stand somewhere if you're getting something wonky happening, threads stream off overlocker cones through the machine so anything wrong in the thread path will throw off the stitching.

Bernina overlocker 203 locking thread is not sewing on fabric


You need to adjust the tension for your threads. Use scraps to test sew as you adjust the individual threads to bring them into proper balance. Your manual will tell you how to do this.

Could not adjust both looper thread tention on singer ultralock


When servicing these machines I have found that the cover over the tensioners needs to be removed so you can see if there is more adjusting possible. If its a newer serger you would hold the knob somewhere in the middle (4-5) and adjust the knurled part that goes through it. Many times I have had to rebuild these tensioners as they get dirty and need cleaning and adjusting. It may take many tries until you have it adjusting correctly. But it needs to be done.

Call tech support! That's why these people get paid. Sites like this wouldn't need to exist if they did their jobs correctly!
