Unable to thread lower looper on Babylock Eclipse BLE1SX

I use the wire threader to thread my lower looper on the Babylock Eclipse
BLE1SX. However, there seems to be a 'blockage' in the lower looper
canal that prevents the wire and thread from passing through easily.
The wire looper threader is so thin, I cannot imagine what would prevent
it from going through. Please help

On rare occasions lint can clog the yubes on these sergers. One of the first things I do is thread the wire through in the opposite direction. It will sometimes push the blockage out. The other option is to use an air compressor and again blow the lint out from the opposite side. If this does not work take it to a service man.

Thread lower looper on Elna 624 DSE. I have manual, still can't do it.


are you using a wire threader or tweezers to thread up? also some overlockers have a slide mechanisim on the looper so you can get to the eyelet, not familiar with this model but your manual should show the threading method. I usually turn the flywheel so the lower looper is all the way to the left and thread up the lower thread carrier, then turn flywheel again to move it to the right, then using the wire threader, I hook the thread from the left and bring it over to the right side, then thread up the looper eye. Hope that makes sense to you

Bottom threader. Thread does not go to top. Stops. Do I need to more pumping? I do it 3-4 times now.


These machines have to have the threader tubes engaged. Do you have them set for threading? If it still doesn't thread you have to use the wire threader that was provided with the machine when you bought it. It might be in the storage compartment under the lower looper spool pin.

I have been using my serger then suddenly it would cut and not serge. I am still unable to thread the "green" right hand threader.


Apparently either you have no needle threaded to lock the stitch or both loopers aren't correctly threaded. You must thread your UPPER looper first (don't know what color yours is), LOWER looper next, RIGHT needle next and last the LEFT needle if you are using the 4 thread overlock stitch. It sounds like you are having trouble with your lower looper. Look for the lower looper threader to help you thread it. Your manual should show you a picture.

Hi..I have a babylock imagine, and trying to insert the upper looper thread and the thread won't go in all the way, no matter how hard I try, please help..Thank's


There is a wire threader that came with the serger that you can insert into the thread port to make sure the entry is not clogged with a broken thread.

I lost mine and use a length of fishing line.

The air part does not function and I can not thread my loopers on the eclipse


Make sure all the settings are as they should be for threading and try again.

You can manually thread the loopers with a very fine gauge guitar wire or beading thread (looks like fishing line) with a loop on one end to hold the thread.

If you still cannot get the machine threaded, take it to a dealer to see if they have a wire threader instead of the DIY method I explained.

Get a wire threader for the machine from the dealer and store it in a safe place as it is easily lost - I lost mine 2 years ago - they are so thin they disapear!

Lower looper threader


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
