Whenever I've had an issue with threads breaking, it's usually the tension or it's not threaded right. You probably have the first thread lapping over one of the bottom threads it shouldn't be lapped over. I would suggest you put all of your tensions back at factory level, pull out all the threads and rethread the whole thing. Thread the two bottom ones first without moving the handwheel. (Make sure the handwheel has the two top needle in the up position. When you thread this machine, you must not have to turn the handwheel. If you do, you change something.) Then thread the top needles. After that hold all four threads and make a string. Test on the same type of fabric as what you're working with. Adjust tension as needed. HTH

The top tread breaks after about 1inch when trying to do chain stich on my janome cover stich machine


Could be the result of several things. There could be some gunk or threads stuck in the tension disk. Be sure to remove the thread and rethread from the beginning in the order specified. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading!!!! If you haven't tried a brand new needle, do so, and make sure it is pushed all the way up and installed with the flat side facing the correct direction. Some machines recommend #90 as the largest needle to use. Also, perhaps the needle eye is too small to accommodate the thread. Watch where the thread is breaking to give you an idea of where the problem may originate. Try a different brand of thread. Sometimes black thread causes issues because the heavy dye affects the thread. Set the tensions at the midway point and then loosen the tension on that one needle. There could also be a burr or rough spot somewhere along the threadpath that is catching the thread. Last idea--could be a timing issue.

Model 3434D. Why does lower looper thread keep breaking?


Usually thread breakage is due to incorrect threading or tension set too tight. When thread breaks, the Best Course of Action is to clip all the threads between the thread tree and the tension disks, Raise the presser foot, and pull all the threads down and out. (Never pull threads up through the tension disks.)

RAISE the presser foot, rethread each and every thread in the order specified in the manual and confirm that each thread path is correct. Grasp each thread between the thread tree and the tension disk with one hand and with the other hand grasp the thread below the tension disk and give a little tug to make sure each is seated firmly in the tension disk. Also on most machines, the lower looper thread must drape over the the upper looper before being pulled under the presser foot.

Lower the presser foot and set each tension guide to the midway point (the factory standard) and retest.

Usually, rethreading only the broken thread will fail. (For some reason, sergers are very finicky.) Just bite the bullet and rethread each and every thread.

Juno (Janome) Serger thread not interlocking?


if the serger is new I suggest taking it back and tell them what the serger is doing.
there could be a mechanical problem with the serger or it could be out of time.

Stitching is too loose on the Juno Janome Serger Model 3434D


sergers the most frustrating machines. Every time you change fabrics you go through a tension adjusting phase.

First make sure you have threaded the machine in the proper order. upper looper, lower looper, then needles from right to left. Always thread any machine while the presser foot lever is in the UP position.

If you ever break a thread... you MUST pull all threads and rethread using the proper order.

Ok that's out of the way. Pull all your threads and get out several pieces of the same fabric scrap. Thread each pathway with a different color. This will help you determine which thread is giving you fits. Sew a test strip. Which thread is loose? tighten/loosen that tension. Keep doing this until you have a well balance seam. Then clip the colored threads starting with the upper looper thread, tie off to your proper color for your seam pull the thread through and up through the throat plate. proceed in this manner with lower looper, right needle, left needle. Sew a test seam.

Good luck.
