check to make sure it is not wraping around the upper looper. just stitch without the material and you will see it. but then you must rethread the upper looper and the lower looper again in the right order. hope this helps

SOURCE: does not stitch lower thread

Make sure when you thread the machine you have the thread seated into the tension assembly on top, then make sure you have the threading ports locked and the switch in the proper place for each looper threading, the machine will only partially thread if you do not have the port locked and it will even still sew although not properly.

SOURCE: timing on a Huskylock 535D surger

the eyes of the needles must line up with lower looper as they pass (timing) the distance between the needle and the looper must be exact. No distance between them and not touching. yep, that tight. they shouldnt move the needle even the slightest amount as they pass each other, yet no space between them.

SOURCE: upper looper will not saty trheaded to sew what

You have to thread the needles last.

1 - Take the threads out of both needles.
2 - Thread both loopers according to the diagram on your serger.
3 - Thread the needles.

If this fails, you need to bring it to a pro for service.

Toyota overlocker sl3000 ; 3rd thread keeps snapping. How do I stop this ?


Third thread--is that the upper looper? Remove all the threads from the machine. Clip them below the thread tree, RAISE the presser foot, and then pull all 4 threads down through the needle. (Never Pull Up!!)

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot.
Rethread beginning with the Upper Looper, then Lower Looper, then the needles. Be sure to ALWAYS thread in this order!! (On most newer machines, when threading the Lower Looper, always finish with the Lower Looper "draped" over the top of the Upper Looper.)

If a thread breaks, remove the threads and start over from the beginning as trying to fish a thread through the existing threads very SELDOM works.

Verify each thread path is correct.

When threading each thread and to insure the threads are seated in the tensioners, give each thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk.

Be sure to oil your machine frequently to keep it operating smoothly!

I need help in good tension for rolled hem in empisal 606D overlocker


Your owner's manual should have instructions for rolled hem settings. My Bernina manual has a the following settings:
Medium weight fabric
80/12 Universal needle
3 cones serger thread
Upper looper 3-5
Lower looper 7-9
Left needle (no thread)
Right needle 3-5
Stitch length 1-1.5
Cutting width 2-3
Differential feed N

Can use woolly thread in the upper looper, but the tension may need to be loosened since the woolly nylon thread will stretch.

Correct threading for 4 th. Juki ind. overlocker


Overlockers and or Sergers are ALWAYS threaded the same way. Upper looper, Lower looper, right needle, left needle. If you have a model number for your Juki we might be able to find you more information.

The best way to figure out tension problems is to thread each thread in a different color so you can determine which thread is giving you problems.

These machines can be frustrating and EVERY time the thread breaks you MUST start the threading problem from the beginning... upper looper, lower looper, right needle left needle.

What setting are the three threads set on for a rolled hem on a singer ultralock l4sh654 and what is the lever by the plate for?


Rolled hemming on any overlocker is usually achived the following way. Right hand needle only.
Blade over to the right usually to cut wider than normal but you can vary this to suit the fabric and stitch width you want.
Thread in this needle and the upper and lower loopers. If you can source any, use woolly overlock thread in the upper looper, this fluffs out when not tensioned and covers the fabric to give the look of solid stitching. Change upper looper tension to about 2 and lower looper tension to about 6 or 7.

The lever by the plate is usually to control the little stitch finger where the stitches are formed, move it backwards and it should move back towards you?? If this happens, then you want it in the retracted (towards you) position for rolled hemming so the stitching is much smaller and the fabric can roll. Normally this stitch finger holds the fabric firm for the loopers to form the stitch over for your normal 3 or 4 thread overlock.

Now test stitch and see how it looks. Tighten the lower looper thread so it lays right beside the needle on the underside. You may need to then tighten or loosen more the upper looper, you want the upper thread to wrap all the way around to the underneath against the lower looper thread and needle.

The cut edge of fabric should roll to underneath inside your seam. Once you've got this happening, turn the stitch length down to 0.5 or so to close it right up tight. This uses heaps of thread so I usually test everything else, then close it up at the end to minimise waste.

Hope this makes sense, good luck.

I have a bernina overlocker and whenever I use it the lower looper (marked in red) thread breaks. How can I fix this? It was serviced yesterday and when other people used it before me it worked fine!


Then it's one of two things. First try setting your lower looper tension on 3 and see if that works. If not set it back on 4 and cut ALL your threads and re-thread the machine STARTING with the UPPER looper, then the lower looper, then the right needle, last the left needle if you're sewing a 4 thread overlock stitch. Make sure the threads aren't twisted in the thread guide. Make sure the lower looper thread is OVER the elbow on the upper looper and over the upper looper thread. Let me know if this works. We'll work until we get it fixed!

How to thread an overlocker - bernina 2500dect


Here's a manual to download:

BERNINA Support Machine and Accessories Finders and Software Support...

NOTE: Be sure to thread each spool in the order SPECIFIED in the manual. Usually the upper looper threads first, then the lower looper second. Make sure when you finish threading the lower looper that the lower looper thread CROSSES OVER the upper looper (and thread) before going under the presser foot.
