You should have gotten,wit your machine, a wire that is intended for threading thicker threads in the loopers. Try engaging the tubular system and then feed this through the looper with a thread like DMC pearl cotton attached. This might clean out the pathway. I would also make sure I vacummed out the machine really well. You may need to have your machine serviced, if you can't get it out.

If you do not have the wire you can use a piece of your husbands heavy fishing line. make sure it fits nicely into your looper and push through. I run one through my looker every now and then to make sure no fuzz is accumulating

I want to use the 2 thread rolled edge. I put the 2 thread converter on the upper looper. When I thread the lower looper, where does the thread go - ie does it go over the 2 thread converter on the upper...


Thread the lower looper like normal, and you needle. When the upper looper comes up it will push up the lower thread and then you can put it under the pressure foot torward the back and start to serge.

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.

The lower looper keeps breaking thread


Hi,...if the lower looper thread is breaking before you sew six inches or more then I suspect a threading problem.When the lower looper thread breaks, You MUST unthread the needles before you thread the lower looper. Thread the looper and then rethread the needles.

Hope that helps,
Doug

Changed thread on serge pro SW 432. Now no chain or stitch.


Sergers can be tricky to thread.

Remove the thread.

Raise the antenna to it's highest position.

Open the tensions - setting zero.

Lift the presser foot.

Open the door on the serger and turn the handwheel until the upper looper is at it's highest point.

There should be a threading guide on the front of the machine or on the inside of the door.

Follow the threading sequence as this greatly affects the stitching.

MyLock 634D won't serge


Check that your lower looper is actually threaded and not tangled with the upper looper (needle thread) when it moves. I wish they'd include pictures in the manual how to lay the thread.

2000ats - not serging


Make sure the tension disks are clean and not binding.. You can use a piece of yarn dampened with alcohol and floss the disks.

Threading order is:
1) Upper Looper first
2) Lower Looper
3) Right Needle -- exception: if you are doing 3 thread using left needle only
4) Left Needle

Instructions for threading Baby lock eclipse BLE1LX for 2 thread sergering


I have just learned this :)
Either needle thread may be engaged for 2-thread serging.
1. Open the front cover and cutting blade cover, cut the upper looper thread just above the threading guide ( this is plate that has two holes for the threads) Raise the presser foot and pull out the clipped thread from under the foot. Remove upper thread from the machine (or you can leave the cone thread on, it doesn't matter).
2. Rotate the handwheel to bring the upper looper to its lowest position.
3. Rotate the subsidiary looper up and to the left, then slip the end into the upper looper thread eye from backside.(this sounds complicated, yes? but it is very simple : the looper has a counter part that is spring-locked to move from left to right and right to left. This is the little claw-looking part of the looper that when in the postion to serg with four threads is to the right side of the looper. It looks like a scorpion's tale. If you can't figure which part it is, use your finger to probe the looper and you'll feel it give a little. This part needs to be moved to the left - it will not slide over, but swing up and over and down, like an arch. Then, where the thread comes out of the looper is where you want the little claw-like part to hook into.)
4. Close the covers. Decrease the needel tension - this depends on what the stitch length is. Stitch length: 2-3, stitch width: 3.0 = L needle n/a, R needle 1; upper looper n/a, lower looper 5
stitch length: 2-3, stitch width: 5.0 = L needle 0, R needle n/a, upper looper n/a, lower looper 3.5

Those are for a flatlock stitch - for a 2-thread rolled edge :
Stitch length: 0.5, stitch width: M = L needle n/a, R needle 4.5, upper looper n/a, lower looper 3.5
Stitch lenght: 1.0, stitch width: M = L needle n/a, R needle 4, upper lopper n/a, lower looper 3.0

Threading a serger


Always thread the lower looper first. Then the upper looper. Finish by threading the needles.
By the way, the lower looper is the one which is always below the needle plate and the upper one is the one which travels above the needle plate.

Threading a husqvarna huskylock 1001L serger


Solution taken from "Handbook for Huskylock Sewing Machine Models 1001L/1000L/1000"

1. Raise the presser foot by using presser foot lever. When the presser foot is raised, the two thread tension discs in the thread tension control panel are released so that thread passes freely between them. Otherwise thread tension may not be correct.

Important! When threading the needle, always be sure to lift the presser foot lever, and also take care to thread in the proper order.

Threading order:
1. Upper looper thread (green)
2. Lower looper thread (blue)
3. Double chain stitch looper thread (purple) in case of 5 thread stitch or double chain stitch
4. Right needle thread (red)
5. Left needle thread or double chain needle thread (yellow)

Caution!
Because the left thread tension dial (yellow) is used for either the left needle or the double chain stitch needle, these needles will never be used at the same time.

Upper looper (green) sequence:
1. Thread holder (silver triangle openings attached to thread holder stand)
2. Thread guide (flat silver clips just behind thread tension disc)
3. Thread tension disc (circular knobs with numbers for tension setting)
4. Pull thread around upper looper guide and upper looper
5. Pull thread into hole of upper looper

Lower looper (blue)
Repeat 1, 2, 3.
4. Pull thread around guide (see color coded chart inside front serger cover).

Easy threading mechanism (for lower looper)
1. Pull out the lower looper threading lever
2. Thread the lower looper and position the thread on hook of the lower looper
threading lever.
3. Push the lower looper threading lever back to its basic position while
holding the end of the thread.

Caution:
When returning the lower looper threading lever, always make sure that the two
blue triangle marks (directional arrows) meet each other.

Right needle thread (red)
Left needle thread (yellow)
Important: Thread the needles after threading of lower looper and upper looper.
First raise the presser foot lever, and then thread the needle threads in order shown in color coded thread guide.
