    after using the serger and changing to another piece of the same material the serger stops serging. The thread does not break but comes out of the right side of the lower looper.


    Am I doing something wrong and how do I correct this?



    I have rethreaded many times and it continues to happen.

My Juki MO-655 serger will sew a few inches then the needle thread becomes disengaged in the stitch process. The machine will sew a few inches more then stops making stitches. I have cleaned the thre


Make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Make sure you are using serger thread that isn't old. Make sure you are undoing all the threads when it breaks and thread it from the beginning.

Make sure you have the right needles in their respective places. My Juki MO has two different size needles.

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.

I just changed my Kenmore serger's needle and it stopped making the overlock stitch. I rethreaded the machine twice and make sure the position of the needles is correct but it didn't help


Hi

If you have the operators manual for this serger, you should be able to follow the threading from the start successfully. Some machines have a better threading diagram on the machine itself.

The needles should have the groove facing the operator's position. They should also be fully inserted in their mounts. Most sergers do not release the thread tensions when the presser foot is raised, therefore, you must zero the tensions to make sure the threads are fully entered into the tensioners when threading anew. After threading, you must readjust your thread tensions to the desired tensions for the set-up you plan to use. Thread tensions should be recorded for each stitch set-up because each serger tends to be a bit different, and therefore, allows you to quickly adjust for the desired stitch needed. The different stitches are adjust and fine tuned by each individual thread tension.

Hope this helps

Changed thread on serge pro SW 432. Now no chain or stitch.


Sergers can be tricky to thread.

Remove the thread.

Raise the antenna to it's highest position.

Open the tensions - setting zero.

Lift the presser foot.

Open the door on the serger and turn the handwheel until the upper looper is at it's highest point.

There should be a threading guide on the front of the machine or on the inside of the door.

Follow the threading sequence as this greatly affects the stitching.

Won't form a chain stitch


You 910 serger doesn't have the option for a Chain Stitch. It is a 2, 3, or 4 thread serger. You can do a good number of different stitches but a chain stich is not one of them.

If what you mean it that it won't "chain off", meaning sew with no fabric beneath the foot as you gently pull the thread towards the rear of the machine, that could be for a number of different reasons. First, change the needles and unthread the machine and start over. If the threads are not exactly where they should be, your serger won't sew correctly. A great video on threading your machine can be seen at:http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/mediafiles/huskylock/index_en.html

Thread keeps breaking and i can't get the stitch setting to go from stretch stitches to normal stitching


Be sure to check that the machine is threaded properly into the needle. Also look at the instruction book to be sure you have the bobbin inserted corectly and that the thread is place properly (threaded correctly) in the bobbin area. Some machines have a diagram on the machine, but if you do not sew frequently; it's easy to mis-thread the bobbin. Did your bobbin thread wind properly onto the bobbin (not loose or loopy). That too, can be a problem. Best of luck. Susan

Coverstitching on White Speedylock serger


Your machine cannot do a cover stitch. Check the Brother website, they make a cover stitch only machine, it works much better than any of the serger/cover stitch combination machines, and it is a lot less money.
