Needles break and machine jams

Speedylock White Model 1500 Serger. Sewing and both needles break and machine jams. I opened it and tried to see what was problem but everything looked OK. Took out needle parts...rethreaded properly and tried again...again same thing happened. It sewed about an inch...material gathered even tho differential was neutrial right before the needles broke. It didn't cut fabric. I don't use the Serger that much but when I need it, I need it. I was going to take it to a repair shop but he wanted $99 to look and I can't afford that~ any ideas?

Kenmore 385 #3 thread breaks


Try removing thread #3 from the tension altogether. If this doesn't work, then try using a different spool of thread. Some break easier than others. If this doesn't work, try rethreading your serger from the the beginning. Upper looper first, then lower looper, then needle. Test on scraps.

I am in need for needles for my Speedylock 1600 What kind of needles do I use......the manual says household type.....does that mean a regular sewing Is machine needle? Is there a size or number?


The plain ol' Singer-type needles are what you need, they're pretty much the standard through the household sewing machine/serger industry.

Match your needles to the material you're using (thickness of the needle) and the thread you're using (eye size). There's generally a chart on the needle package to clue you in there.

That's a nice machine, good luck with it!

My serger will only sew a few inches, then the thread on the lower looper breaks. I have checked threading, rethreaded many times.


Been there, done that. Old serger almost went out the window more than once.

Raise the thread antenna and loopers to their highest positions.

Set the tensions to zero. If your serger has auto-tension, raise the presser foot as this also opens the tensions.

Begin threading from the right as indicated in your manual or on the door of the serger.

If this continues, the serger may need to be serviced as the timing could be the problem.

Ask before leaving the serger as the service cost usually starts around $100.

I finally gave in and bought a Babylock with instant jet-air threading.
