Sometimes you have to remove all the thread and start over.

Make sure:

The needles are inserted properly.

The thread antenna is fully extended.

The loopers are at their highest position.

The presser foot is up.

The tensions are open/zero.

Begin threading from the right to the left.

Good luck - I gave in (and saved the life of my old serger) and bought an air-jet threading serger.

Rethread all the threads beginning from the cones and make sure to thread in the order in the owner's manual. UPPER Looper first, LOWER Looper second with the thread tail Crossing Over the Upper Looper as the last step, then thread the needles.

My Bernina 1300 MDC serger stopped sewing. The light comes on and the machine makes the start up noise but, when I press the foot pedal, nothing happens.The foot works with other machines.


check to see if any thread is jammed inside the right turning side wheel in the core area at times there can be thread that flies in there and may stop the main belt turning.

Bernina 335 serger won't sew/overlock. carefully rethreaded the serger but that hasn't helped.


The 335 has a two thread chain stitch (stitch type 401), and the overlock side (right needle side), is a three thread plain overlock. If you are describing the plain overlock as the problem, I would first suggest the following in re-threading:

1. Thread the upper looper
2. Thread the lower looper
3. Thread the needle last (important)

If the needle threaded, you cannot re-thread the lower looper without breaking the thread.
In order to thread the lower looper, the lower looper must pass by the needle thus picking up the needle thread. So, instead of threading the lower looper thread underneath the needle thread, the looper would be threaded on top and cannot sew without breaking the thread.
Make sure that the threads are bedded between the tension disks. Check this by stretching the thread fore and aft of the tension disks as well as visually noting that the threads are not accidentally threaded behind the disks. You can also loosen the tension disks when threading so as to allow the threads to bed deeply between the disks.
Please reply with your observations.

How do I thread the Bernina Overlocker


Depends on your serger model. Best idea is consult the owner's manual. Some manuals are available for download on Bernina's web site (look under Support). Be sure to thread in the order specified in the manual. Usually the upper looper is first, then the lower looper second, then the needles. (Hint: The lower looper thread ALWAYS lays over the top of the upper looper thread in the final looper threading step.)

You can also download a serger workbook too.

My thread keeps breaking on my Bernina 800dl serger


Is the thread aerial raised up ensuring a good thread flow?

Which thread is breaking, needle or looper? If you can establish which thread is breaking, then check that tension dial, turn it to zero and clean between the tension discs by sawing a selvage edge of cotton fabric offcut between the two discs to remove any fibres, dirt or debris.

Now turn all dials to zero, unthread the needles, and pull on each thread, feeling if there is any resistance. If there is, check back through the thread path and find where the thread is catching.
Serger threads flow very fast and the thread path can't be compromised or the thread snagged.

Check the thread path from the cone to the sewing foot, and ensure that the thread is not catching on something, or getting caught around the cone, cone holder or aerial somewhere in the path. Look at the thread cone, has the thread feeding off got looped around itself somewhere? Open up front of the serger and look at the thread going through the loopers, is something misthreaded here, sometimes there is a part that slides on a looper to make threading easier, just check it is all threaded up correctly. There should be a threading diagram inside the serger cover usually showing the paths.

Rethread the needle(s) and pull all the threads under the pressure foot, lower the foot, turn tensions back to 5, then chain off and test sew.

If no joy after trying all this, I'd take it for a ride in the car to the shop.

How to i thread my 008d bernina serger?


I believe it is color coded right?
start with the Upper looper follow from the upper looper throught the loops below the machine up through the tension disk and to the place where the thread cone sits. now retrace your steps from the thread to the looper place thread under foot.
by starting from the finishing point to the starting point you know where you are going with the thread when you thread the machine so upper looper lower looper right needle left needle. you must get it exactly correct or it wont work

Threading a bernina serger


Here is a little jingle to remember as far as the order of threads to thread...
Upper looper, lower looper, left needle, right.
Usuall if you give numbers to the threads from left to right as 1,2,3,4 , you would thread it in the order of 3, 4, 2, 1 . Also when threading the loopers be sure the lower looper thread goes over the top of the upper looper thread as it goes out the back.
Hope this helps.
