Hi,...if the lower looper thread is breaking before you sew six inches or more then I suspect a threading problem.When the lower looper thread breaks, You MUST unthread the needles before you thread the lower looper. Thread the looper and then rethread the needles.

Hope that helps,
Doug

SOURCE: thread continually breaking in lower looper needle

I was having this very same problem with my lower looper . I had been using the one needle stitching all afternoon and I was doing quite nice stitching. then I decided to put the right needle back in and do some overlock stitching and guess what I spent the next two hours fighting the looper problem. I had completely re-thread this machine at least 20 times now. I decided to take the needle out and re-insert it and re-thread it one more time (right lower looper- then upper looper- right needle- then left needle) was careful to pull all threads to the back and under the presser foot for about 6 inches.
Held on to the thread, lowered presser foot and did the chaining stitch. BINGO it didn't break, tried it with a piece of cloth and Perfect stitches. I have a Babylock BL402 and used tension settings left to right
4-3-3-3 and default settings for the rest.
Hope this helps someone someday.

SOURCE: lower looper threader

check to make sure it is not wraping around the upper looper. just stitch without the material and you will see it. but then you must rethread the upper looper and the lower looper again in the right order. hope this helps

SOURCE: I've lost my manual and video need threading info

I had the same problem. I found if you turn the wheel three times and then put in material, it will work fine. If you try to run a long thread to see if it works, the lower looper will break. Try it with material and it will work fine.

SOURCE: threading the bernina 1300DC serger

These things are always complicated when you try to write them down, so I suggest a call to your local Bernina dealer to arrange a quick lesson on how to do it.

If you can go back to the dealer whence it came, so much the better..........perhaps you could go in and buy some things you need and then as you are leaving, make the enquiry with the machine in your car, they may be able to show you how to do it right away......building relationships is a very good way of feeling comfortable about asking for help.

Also..........
If the manual diagram is too small, a local library or stationery supplier should be able to magnify a photocopy for you to see it all more easily.

Elna Pro 4De serger thread breaking


Be sure to thread each in the ORDER specified--for most machines (but yours may differ) upper looper, lower looper, then needles. Follow (closely) the threading diagram on the machine. Missing one guide or hitting the guides out of order will throw you machine into a tizzy! On my serger, the lower looper has to lay over the top of the upper looper/thread before it all gets pulled under the presser foot toward the back of the machine.

It also may help to RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine.

Toyota overlocker sl3000 ; 3rd thread keeps snapping. How do I stop this ?


Third thread--is that the upper looper? Remove all the threads from the machine. Clip them below the thread tree, RAISE the presser foot, and then pull all 4 threads down through the needle. (Never Pull Up!!)

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot.
Rethread beginning with the Upper Looper, then Lower Looper, then the needles. Be sure to ALWAYS thread in this order!! (On most newer machines, when threading the Lower Looper, always finish with the Lower Looper "draped" over the top of the Upper Looper.)

If a thread breaks, remove the threads and start over from the beginning as trying to fish a thread through the existing threads very SELDOM works.

Verify each thread path is correct.

When threading each thread and to insure the threads are seated in the tensioners, give each thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk.

Be sure to oil your machine frequently to keep it operating smoothly!

Why does the 4th thread keeps breaking on my serger? I've re-threadedi it a dozen times carefully following the diagram. What am I doing wrong?


Most likely it is either your tension on thay thread being too high, or the needle is too big for the project you are working. Lower that tension, use the next size up needle, and thay should fix it. Also, I STRONGLY suggest only using maxi-locks thread. They are more expensive than other serger threads, but they are always half-price at hancock... Any other thread I have tried using causes breakage, especially on the the lower looper (the 4th thread). Although, of you keep the tension low-below 3 or so, you should be ok. If these tips don't help, I would also check your cutting width, if your machine has an adjustable one. If it is leaving too much gabric to the right of the needles, out is conceivable that this is putting too much pressure on the threads. Let me know if this helps!

Bernina 2500DCET serger keeps breaking the centre needle thread for no apparent reason .Already had machine serviced,new needle plate didn't solve anything either. Any ideas


I have found with any serger I have used that you have to cut the looper (bottom) threads before re threading the needle threads. You then rethread the loopers.
If you don't do this, the needle threads keep breaking. Hope this helps.

I've lost my manual and video need threading info


One of the most common mistakes with overlockers is that the threads must always be threaded in order. So if you sew about 1 inch and the thread breaks try unthreading the eyes of the needles rethread the looper and then rethread the eyes of thew needles. If not you will get the same result of sewing about 1 inch and it will break again.
