I got a bernette 134d overlocker and the Nr 3 thread keep on breaking. What's wrong?


Most often, it is misthreading. Remove all the threads from the machine. Then rethread each thread in the order specified and verify the thread path is correct for each. Also, when threading the tension mechanism, give each thread an extra little tug to make sure the thread is seated completely.

Oh yes, very IMPORTANT. Always raise the presser foot when threading the machine!!!

FWIW, when a thread breaks, trying to rethread that one thread will not resolve the issue because it is being threaded out of order. If rethreading the one thread doesn't work the first time, just bite the bullet and rethread every thread.

The other possibilities are the tension is too tight, poor quality thread, or a burr somewhere in the threading process of that thread is snagging the thread.

My thread keeps breaking, Ive checked and changed my needle, re-threaded bobbin and upper but every time I try to sew the upper thread breaks.


Have you tried loosening the upper tension? Remove the upper thread, RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning (make sure it follows the correct thread pathway). Sometimes the upper thread jumps out of a thread guide or wraps around something. Or try a different brand of thread? Avoid old or bargain bin threads--use good quality thread. Could also be the incorrect needle for the thread/fabric, ie thread too large for the needle eye.

Kenmore serger thread keeps breaking


Serger thread breaks
1. Is the serger threaded correctly?
2. Is the needles inserted correctly?
3. Is one of the needles bent or damaged?
4. Is the tension adjusted too tightly?
5. Is the tension adjusted to accommodate thickness of thread being used?
6. Are you using inferior quality thread?
7. Is the thread feeding of the cone/spool freely?
8. Is the needle size correct for the type of fabric being used?
9. Are the needles being used the correct one for the serger?

Thread 1 keeps snapping


Is it possible the thread might be too old? If so, it might tend to break easier than normal. Also if it got wet.

Have you made sure the needle thread is the last to be threaded. If this thread is still under the loopers when you rethread, the threads will break .Sewit

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.
