The tension must be too tight or check to make sure the spool does not have a crack that is catching the thread in the middle of using the serger. When the serger is working and the spool has a crack it catching the thread then you press to go on and it gives a break the needle because the spool is still holding onto the thread

White Superlock serger continually breaking needles


First take all the thread out of the machine. Put in new needles and run the machine slowly by hand and see if there is a problem with timing. If the needle hits and bends or breaks... take it in to be timed. If the needle don't hit....

Make sure you are properly threading this thing. Unlike a sewing machine which gives you some leeway, Sergers must be threaded in a certain order. Typically, upper looper, lower looper, right needle left needle. If you break a thread you can't just rethread that thread... you have to start from the beginning.

You might check singerco.com for the manual for this thing. They have most of white's manuals online they are identified by a W before the serger model number.

Broken needles


Machine breaks needles
change needles
make sure you are using the right needle for your type of machine.
the presser foot may not be installed properly
use the correct needle for the type of fabric you are working with. To fine of needle on heavy fabric or to course a needle on silk or jersey can damage fabric.
let the feed dogs guide the fabric & the feed dogs will work with the presser foot .
the needles is not all the way in -push all the way up against the stop
Check thread tension

I have a White Superlock 2000 ATS Serger and it looks like I have it threaded correctly but the LEFT needle thread is not catching. What am I doing wrong?


First re-thread it from start in this order AFTER checking to see that the left needle is higher than the right one. (It's supposed to be higher!) Make sure the needles are new and flat side to the back. Thread first the upper looper, than the lower looper, rt needle and then left needle. If this doesn't work, the timing might be off which is a trip to the repair service. Let me know if this works. Hope you don't have to take it to the "doc!"

My white 2000 serger is dropping the thread on the first needle when I sew with it- the loopers, both upper and lower are working correctly in conjunction with the "right upper" needle. I have changed...


Could be as simple as poor quality thread (not using MaxiLock thread), the needles not inserted properly (the left is slightly higher than the right), a missing stitch forming pin on the needle plate, the needle bar being too high or a looper timing issue.

As the needles raise, the upper looper should move to the right with the right needle tip slightly above the eye of the looper.

White Serger 1934D not stitching


No, Sounds like the loopers are not passing properly to pick up the thread, from off the needles.

I don't know how you rethread after the thread breaks but my wife has had 3 or 4 sergers and has found that if a thread breaks you MUST unthread and start at the beginning and not just try to rethread the one that has broken or you will have trouble.
