Be sure to install brand new needles. A bent/damaged needle could strike and break or cause damage.

Otherwise, you should probably take your machine for service.

The top tread breaks after about 1inch when trying to do chain stich on my janome cover stich machine


Could be the result of several things. There could be some gunk or threads stuck in the tension disk. Be sure to remove the thread and rethread from the beginning in the order specified. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading!!!! If you haven't tried a brand new needle, do so, and make sure it is pushed all the way up and installed with the flat side facing the correct direction. Some machines recommend #90 as the largest needle to use. Also, perhaps the needle eye is too small to accommodate the thread. Watch where the thread is breaking to give you an idea of where the problem may originate. Try a different brand of thread. Sometimes black thread causes issues because the heavy dye affects the thread. Set the tensions at the midway point and then loosen the tension on that one needle. There could also be a burr or rough spot somewhere along the threadpath that is catching the thread. Last idea--could be a timing issue.

Newhome 743D overlocker. What kind of needles does it use?


From what I can discern, Newhome was a Janome product. Perhaps these needles will work:

Janome Overlock Serger Needles 5 Needles per Pack

Is this similar to your machine? If so, then the needles above may work:
Janome Mylock744D Overlocker Serger

I found some Janome 743D manuals online but they all appear to be in the UK, or elsewhere.

I just got a new Janome 8002d serger. Why does it make a clicking noise when I begin to serge and then it goes to straight stitching that comes unsewn.


I don't have a Janome, but you might check your threading to see if it's correct, lucky you to get a new one!!!

Serger Needles


Janome Overlockers (sergers) are set at the factory with #14 Red Tip needles
For finer fabrics, the #11 Blue Tip is good
If the #11 breaks, then try a #14 as they are a little heavier duty

Can I just change the needle plate on my janome overlocker been told I need to have loopers reset


Sergers are funny things. You can certainly try just replacing the needle.... make sure you thread correctly. upper looper, lower looper, right needle left needle... etc.

Before you take off sewing... run the machine by hand a few revolutions if it seems to be moving with no more clunking etc. try to sew. If it breaks the needle again. Stop immediately and take it in.

What twin needles do I get for my overlocker ,It is a Janome Mylock 134D Are the needles universal or do I have to get a special one for this machine


I think Janome Mylock 134 has 2 separate needles. They are #11 or #14 for sergers and secured by 2 independent setscrews. I saw on ebay the instruction book with the owner's handbook for Janome Mylock 134D.

My janome harmony 9102D serger I think is out of


i suggest you get a tech to re-time your machine. timing is complex on an overlocker and if not done correctly you will probably break a looper.
