Janome MyLock 744D I have been loaned this overlocker and cannot work out how to thread the final loop/eye (before the 'needle') of the right-hand bobbin. The loop/eye is positioned under the footplate. How do I get the thread under there? (I'm accustomed to using an Elna overlocker where you acess that loop?eye by turning the hand wheel. On this machine the needle shaft doesn't come out far enough!) Thanks Elspeth

The 744D I have does not automatically thread. There is a tiny L shaped metal piece that you push toward that back of the machine and it pulls that little eye out so you can see it. When it is threaded, then you pull that little L shaped thing back. I wish I could show you, it's hard to explain since I don't know the technical name for parts!

Threading is simplified by color-coded thread guides and a self-threading lower looper. Simply lay the thread into the guide, flip the switch, and the lower looper is threaded. The guide is automatically returned to its normal position when you turn the balance wheel.

Hope this helps, Please Vote. Thanks and good luck!

My Janome MyLock 434D overlocker is giving me problems ... never has before.....


the thread is most likely binding somewhere in the path. Pull out thread, use canned air or compressor to blow out path and rethread.

My Janome 204d Serger won't form a chain stitch. It is threaded correctly. I have changed the needles??


I would suggest that you check the needles again, make sure they are both fully up into the needle housing. Also they should be at different heights in order to form the stitch sequence.

It is important that you thread the loopers first in the sequence shown in your manual, then the needles. So you may need to recheck the threading again and make sure the threads are in all the eyes correctly, especially the lower looper. Also some overlockers, have a sliding eye on the lower looper for ease of threading, if yours does, make sure it has been slid back to normal operating position.

When you have checked the threading up, take all four threads under the raised pressure foot and make sure that the upper looper thread and lower looper threads are not crossing over each other. Lower the pressure foot and try to chain off again.
I hope this helps you to resolve the issue.
