How do you work a huskylock 430 serger


Here's an owner's manual:
User Guide

Usually, if the machine breaks thread, it is because it is threaded incorrectly, the tension is too tight, or there could be a bad needle. Make sure you are using the correct needle and inserting it properly.

Check to make sure the thread coming from the spool is not wrapped around something that it shouldn't, ie the spool pin or the thread tree.

Unthread everything, RAISE the presser foot, then rethread from the very beginning making sure the threads seat properly in the tension disks.

Thread each thread in order as instructed (usually the upper looper first and the lower looper second with the tail draped over the top of the first looper). Pull at least 6 inches of thread tail of all three threads and lay them all in a straight line under the presser foot extending toward the back of the machine.

BE SURE to check your threading sequence against the instruction manual diagram since missing one thread guide will cause problems.

Set all the tension dials to the midway point to test your stitching. HINT: it helps to thread with 3 different colors so you can determine which threads are presenting a problem.

When a thread breaks, it is best to rethread everything from the beginning. Sergers are very finicky machines and even if you try to rethread only the broken thread, they will generally refuse to work.

Tip

Sewing Machine & Serger Problems


If you are experiencing stitching problems with your sewing machine and serger, try raising the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. This releases the thread tensioner while threading, but when you lower the presser foot, the tensioner is activated to control the thread's tension.

Never remove the upper thread by grabbing the spool and pulling the thread tail backwards through the needle eye, thread guides, and tensioner. To remove the upper thread, clip the thread below the spool, raise the presser foot, then gently grab the thread tail by the needle's eye and pull the remaining thread through.

Thread tension problem


Got a serger huh? First put 3 different colors on the spool holders. Then play with tensions so you understand which thread does what.

It's trial and error. Good luck.

Baby lock Imagine Serger - Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem. The force air threader (looper) will not push the thread all the way through


I "THINK" I have my machine threaded properly but it will not make a chain stitch. I followed the thread guide for the narrow three spool set up with the right needle setting.
why would the machine not catch the chain ????

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

I dont know how to thread this serger. i dont


Have you opened the front of the serger to see if there is a threading guide.

Basically:

Lift the thread antenna to it's highest position.

Lift the presser foot and set the tensions to zero.

Turn the handwheel so the loopers are at their highest point.

Begin with the upper looper (first thread cone on the right/ end of looper is pointing toward the presser foot). .

Second spool is for the lower looper (end of looper is pointing away from the presser foot).

Third spool, right needle; fourth spool, left needle.

Be careful that the threads do not cross during the threading of the loopers.Follow all the guides, taking the thread under the presser foot and to the left side of the serger.

Set the tensions back to 3 - 6 and lower the presser foot. Sew a few inches and if the threads knit into a chain, you can then do a test sew with fabric.

Simplicity's Simply The Best Sewing Book has good information with regard to using a serger that you may find beneficial.

How do I thread my serger? I forget and can't locate the manual


Most sergers are color coded for each thread. Just take each thread from the spool and guide it through the loops and pressure knobs. If it is a three thread machine, you will guide the far right spools through the loopers. Do this before you thread the needle. Pull the threads through all of their positions and start to serge,

Treading my serger


When you thread the serger, your suppose to start threading the 3rd spool (left to right) first, then the 4th spool, then thread the 2nd spool which ends up in the second needle (left to right), There is a lever or bottom looper that the thread must go through before placing thread through the 2nd needle. Finally, the last spool to thread is the 1st spool (left to right). Follow the threading pattern and once you put the thread through the two loops that look like springs, turn the wheel at the right toward you until you can see like a lever with a ****, thread that **** from the back then put the thread through the machine to the right. Turn the knob to toward you again until the upper looper is showing, then you have the put your thread through the hole in that looper then through the first needle. You should now have 4 thread toward the back of your machine which you need to place under the presser foot and to the left side of the machine. There is also a VHS video that goes with the machine to help explain how to thread your serger. Also be sure that each spool of thread is in the tension of the upper colored tension wheels. If it is not, then your stitiches will be loose. Good luck and I hope this helps. I had to watch the video several times before I got it. If you don't have the video, try ebay for and perhaps you can obtain one. The video is Speedylock 1600, instructional video, USA Part #136000016, Perhaps you can contact White and see if they have one you could purchase.
Good Luck Serging!!!!
