Question about Sewing Machines
Be sure to install a brand new needle. Verify it is the correct needle for your machine and it is installed facing the correct direction.
Remove all the thread from your machine. (Clip the threads below the thread spools, RAISE the presser foot, and gently pull all the threads DOWN through the needle--NEVER up!)
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify that you are threading each thread in the order specified in the manual--failure to do so will cause your machine to malfunction.
When threading, give each thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk.
Set all the tensions to the midway point for a 3 or 4 thread overlock.
Test your machine.
If the left needle still fails to stitch, then your machine may need a timing adjustment.
