Hi. I have a new overlocker. Fabric got jammed ,got it out but machine now jams at half turn . Could some fabric still be under feed dogs ? How to get it out ?


Hello Jenny hornsey

This may sound traumatic, but there is no easy way to pin point where the tie-up is located. So proceed as follows.
Cut all the threads as they come off the antennas.

Open the front cover and pull-out all the threads by pulling them straight toward the back. If they do not come easily, try moving the hand wheel back and forth by a 1/4 revolution .. this is like a rocking motion. If still not budging, start cutting back the threads and removing them in sections until all the threads are cleared. If this step is still challenging; check that there is no residual fabric or threads still wrapped around the loopers or other part/s of the serger. If so cut them out bit by bit until everything below is cleared.

Great. Now check for threads wrapped and/or jammed anywhere above.

Since the overlocker jammed, it is possible that the needles were bent. This will continue to cause issues in stitch formation. So just to make sure; change the needle/s. Make sure that the correct needle type is being used. Every overlocker is engineered to be used with a specific needle type. The needle type will be specified in the manual and will also appear on the needle package. If the needle types are not the same, do not use those needles.

Re-thread the overlocker and stitch test on a piece of fabric before pressing down on the foot control.

This should get the overlocker back on track and you back to overlocking.

Please let me know how this works out for you.

Happy overlocking

How to thread a Empisal overlocker.. model 760C


Perhaps the manual would help:

Empisal Overlocker 760C Empisal Sewing Machines

On most machines, it is important to ALWAYS raise the presser foot when threading the machine (although the instruction manual says to raise the presser foot only to pull the thread tail under it). Be sure to give the thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk to seat it properly. Be sure to thread in the order as specified (Upper looper, Lower looper, Right needle, Left Needle). If the machine messes up, it is usually a best policy to remove all the thread and rethread from the beginning. Threading out of order will almost guarantee failure!!!

I need help in good tension for rolled hem in empisal 606D overlocker


Your owner's manual should have instructions for rolled hem settings. My Bernina manual has a the following settings:
Medium weight fabric
80/12 Universal needle
3 cones serger thread
Upper looper 3-5
Lower looper 7-9
Left needle (no thread)
Right needle 3-5
Stitch length 1-1.5
Cutting width 2-3
Differential feed N

Can use woolly thread in the upper looper, but the tension may need to be loosened since the woolly nylon thread will stretch.

Correct threading for 4 th. Juki ind. overlocker


Overlockers and or Sergers are ALWAYS threaded the same way. Upper looper, Lower looper, right needle, left needle. If you have a model number for your Juki we might be able to find you more information.

The best way to figure out tension problems is to thread each thread in a different color so you can determine which thread is giving you problems.

These machines can be frustrating and EVERY time the thread breaks you MUST start the threading problem from the beginning... upper looper, lower looper, right needle left needle.

Bernina Overlocker 134D trheading problem Dont nouwn how to trhead my machine


I would suggest that you drag out the manual (or buy one if you don't have it) and then go to You-tube and search on threading overlockers and watch a video or two. The threading techniques are same for most machines, you need to thread loopers, then needles through all the thread guides. Open the front flap of your machine and check if there is a threading diagram there and follow it. MAKE SURE YOU ALWAYS RAISE THE THREAD AERIAL TO FULL HEIGHT BEFORE YOU USE THE MACHINE.

Also make sure you use the correct needles for it, usually EL705 rather than the standard sewing machine 130/705H. It has a groove down the front which helps with stitch formation.

I would also suggest that you hunt down a local dealer and enquire about classes on cleaning, threading and using an overlocker as it will help you so much.

And if your machine accessories are not all there, then invest in tweezers and the fine wire threading up gadgets, they really help getting the thread into needles.

Just purchased a Yamata FY14U4AD overlocker from eBay. It is meant to be new. The power is on but there seems to be no drive. The motor makes a buzzing sound but the needles do not move. Is there a trick...


It sounds like your loopers are jammed.....if not,something else is....These are very cheap machines made in China..imported initially through jSM joys Sewing Machines...Put it back on ebay as soon as you can...
