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!"

What size needle to use


Use Organ HA x 1SP needles size 90 (14) for general sewing or 75 (11) for light weight fabrics. These are common needles and Amazon carries them. There are other sources. When you choose the needle size, look at your thread relative to the groove in the needle. (The thread should fit in that groove.) I use the Singer Sewing Book for good pictures of the needle to thread size.

Singer has the manuals for the Superlock 2000 ATS on their site. Part 1 of the manual is here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/984_sl-2000-ats-wb-a-x.pdf . All manuals are here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . Enter the model number without the letters after the number.

I hope this helps.

My left thread breaks even when i dont have material in the machine and also when i insert the needles the right needle is longer than the left is that supposed to be that way.


try rethreading the machine incase the thread is caught somewhere

also check the tension on the left needle is sound like it to tight

yes, on my serger one needle is a little bit longer too

Left needle thread keeps breaking on my White Superlock 2000 ATS serger


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

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.

White serger 2000


Did you change to the narrow stitch finger? The narrow one is in the door of the machine where the other tools are -- a little square box on the left of where the needle box slides in. Sometimes that is needed instead of the normal one.

Caution: If you have never before changed it out, open the left door all the way and look and see where the stitch finger is coming out of before you remove it all the way. Refer to your manual.

2000ats - not serging


Make sure the tension disks are clean and not binding.. You can use a piece of yarn dampened with alcohol and floss the disks.

Threading order is:
1) Upper Looper first
2) Lower Looper
3) Right Needle -- exception: if you are doing 3 thread using left needle only
4) Left Needle

I have a white superlock 228 jaguar serger problems with right needle


Couple of things I could think of: tension disks need cleaning, there is a site that tells how to clean them, maybe 2 as I recall. Other thing is it is a much older serger, (I have one I am slowly working on to bring up to working level), so it could be that a tension spring internally has lost its tension. It might need a trip to the repair man if that is the case. Another thing is are you using correct needles for the machine? Have you changed them recently? Even new needles can be bad, so if you have to change three times to triple check it can be worth it.
