Threading Serger this may be helpful even if it is not the same model. The sequence of threading loopers is VERY important. If you thread them out of order, be prepared to be frustrated beyond belief!!! Something else (I don't think she mentioned) is to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading your machine. This is true for sergers AND sewing machines!

My Bernette 203 will not cut the material or thread. I need to know the correct placement of the cutting knives.

First to see if the top blade is pressing against the lower blade when it goes past to make the cut.
You should be able to push the top blade to the right and have it spring back to the left. Do that to see if there is a small amount of presser on the lower blade.

Next, the cutting part of the top blade should drop just under the lower blade buy about 2 mil.

Also the lower blade should be level with the needle/stitch plate.

Blades also may need sharpened. The top one can be done with just about any sharpening tool but the botom is carbide so you will need a dimond wheel to sharpen it

Hope this helps

Babylock EMP6 problem with thread cutting

The thread cutting mechanism is dull and needs to be replaced or sharpened. I had the same problem on my machine. I found another post where another user said it has to be replaced every 150 hours of machine use, the cost was 62 dollars. My dealer would not sell me the parts he said I had to bring it in, so I decided to sharpen it myself. See picture for more details. To start take the two screws of the top of the chrome plate to reveal cutter that is above bobbin. The cutter is in two parts both chrome plated. The hook part is held in place by a copper plated screw, the blade (shown in picture hanging off to the side) is held in place by one small screw. I sharpened the blade on a fine grit Japanese water stone (brown block shown in picture) to a razor edge and about a 7 degree angle; the tip of the blade must ride on the hook. This still did not make the cutter work perfectly so I had to take the hook out and reform the small hole in the hook that the blade rides over with a the un-fluted end of a 5/64 high speed steel drill bit. Was not hard to do because the hook is not hardened steel, at least on mine. When putting the blade back on make sure it is resting against the rolled black pressed pin before tightening down.

Good luck!f1f2e5b.jpg
