Left needle thread not connecting


Timing an overlocker is NOT for home service, it takes training, tools, gauges and experience take it in to get it fixed

The looper stitches are coming over the cut edge of the fabric. I have the cutting width set to WIDE.


you don't say what make and model serger this is.

However, as a rule of thumb, set the blade to widest setting, then test serge and tighten up the top and bottom looper threads to encase the cut edge neatly. So you would need to turn the dials on the two right hand knobs to a higher number, just move each dial one number at a time and test serge again.

The other possibility is that the thread is not between the tension discs properly, so check your thread paths, when you pull on the thread below the tension dial, it should feel firm to pull.

I always test serge scraps when sewing a new fabric and adjust the tensions to suit it before beginning a new project as a lightweight fabric will behave differently to a heavy fabric.

From "Serge With Confidence" by Nancy Zieman:

Set the machine up for a 3-thread rolled edge. Normal width; length 1 - 2.

Use Woolly Nylon in the loopers & regular thread in the needle.

Lock or disengage the cutting blade.

Guide fabric along the right edge of the presser foot.

Stretch and equal amount from fron to back while serging.

Lower the differential feed, if available to about 0.6.

Serge at a slow to moderate speed.

Practice with scraps first.

After serging, gently stretch & release the fabric edge after serging.

Threads keep getting tangled when I try to serge. Happens everytime I tried to re-thread it, it bunches up when I serge.


If you mean the threads get tangled behind the presser foot then maybe this can help. Try pulling the threads gently as you guide the fabric through the first time. Also, I sometimes put a scrap piece of fabric under the presser foot with the edge lined up with the needles (so it is further back than normal). Then I gently press the speed control foot and pull on the threads. This allows the needles to start sewing right away on the fabric rather than giving the thread a chance to get tangled. Hope that helps!

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

Babylock Eclipse SX won't catch the overlock stitch


  • the factory default settings are 4,4,4,4 and M
  • Change the needles
  • use a can of air spray ( compressed air can sold in computer stores) to ensure there is no fabric or dust under the needle plate

3 thread overlocking (serging) is no different t 4 thread, except you remove one or other of the needle threads.

The stitch width is then controlled by two variables,

the manual width dial selector, and
your choice of either the right or left needle

Suggest yo play with width selector on a scrap of your project fabric to achieve the look you are after.
