I have a YAMATA fy14u4ad, but I don't have the book to tell me the thread setting so what should the thread setting be for all 4 threads


Assuming this is a 4-thread serger. The thread tension setting will depend on which stitch you are making. A standard 4-thread overlock stitch would generally have the tensions set in the middle. FWIW, the tension in this setting is correct when the threads meet in the middle of the fabric. It should neither be off the edge of the fabric or so tight as to create a puckered edge.

The thread keep bursting as soon as i start to sew although machine is thread properly


Check your thread tension isn't too tight, try on a piece of similar fabric that you are going to use, try sewing a line of stitches, if the thread snaps, change your tension number, then sew another line with your different tension number, try this until you can stitch without the thread snapping, it could be that your bobbin tension is too tight. Can you check your machine manual, it could even be the needle or the thread that's wrong for your fabric. But I would say, check your tension.
Hope this helps.

Bobbin not winding tightly


Consult your owner's manual. Possibly, you are not threading the bobbin winder correctly. The thread does go through a tensioner somewhere along the way that creates tension on the thread.
Janome MEMORY CRAFT 9700 Instruction Book Threading For Bobbin Winding
Or perhaps the tensioner is not working properly.

If neither is problem, then you can always pick up a stand-alone bobbin winder (Amazon, JoAnn's, etc) for ~$30. One brand is called Sidewinder. These bobbin winders are marvelous because you can wind bobbins without unthreading your machine. It also saves wear and tear on your machine.

Or take your machine for service.

No tension on the bobbin and no way to set it the book says it is factory set. maybe it is just worn out. it is plastic.


It may be factory set but it cannot determine the type of thread you use, on the bobbin case there is a screw if the thread does not pull through with slight resistence and is tight then slacken the srew anti clockwise about a quarter of a turn and test, repeat if necessary, top tension 4 or 5

Yamata FY7568 Machine not sewing


Make sure the correct needle is installed on the machine. Domestic needles will have one flat and one rounded side on the shaft. Make sure the flat side of the needle is on the back and the groove on the needle also being to the back.
You might also want to make sure the tip of the needle is not broken.
Other than that, your machine could be out of timing.
