Sounds like you are trying to thread a serger or overlock. I would be helpful if you offered up the model number. However, a few things I've learned.

Sergers MUST be threaded in ORDER. Failure to do so will break your looper (had it happen)

In other words if you break one of the 4 or 5 threads... you have to un-thread all the other points and begin with Thread 1, then do thread 2, etc., etc.,

If you would give me the Make and model number of your serger... I will be happy to see if I can find your manual and threading guide for you.

My Babylock Serger Eclipse was bought around 1994 and had a looper threading tool wire to thread it when I could not get it to thread manually. I lost the tool and can't get the thread to blow through....


Try one of the Serger looper threading tools listed on this Amazon.com page: http://www.amazon.com/Serger-Looper-and-Needle-Threader/dp/B000Q30C3G/ref=pd_sbs_ac_1 .

These are third party tools. See the main item and the section "Customers who viewed this item also viewed" for other manufacturer's looper threading tools.

I hope this helps.

My overlocker is jammed with the needles in the down position - I have not used it for a while and hve just oiled and cleaned it.


Oh man.

Not sure how to get it unjammed but I know that if overlockers/sergers aren't threaded properly they can jam up like that. The last time that happened to me... broken looper.

Open up the front and start clipping threads... Gently rock the hand wheel to see if it loosens as you get thread released.

Honestly I suspect that your machine has locked up because it's been knocked out of time. If you still have problems take it in and have it serviced.

It dose not sew, and when it dose the bobbin tangles up and lets out too much thread


The bobbin goes into the holder in what would appear to be the wrong direction ie, the thread doubles back. If this is correct, the bobbin tension might be too low, there is a screw on the bobbin holder to set the tension.

Stiches are loose and ball up on bottom side


Then your top thread tension is far too loose in relation to the bobbin thread.

First, check that the bobbin thread (the lower thread) pulls out with a little bit of tension. If it's hard to pull out then you have loaded the bobbin incorrectly or have a faulty bobbin case. If the bobbin thread seems fine then check that you have correctly run the top thread and have set the tension correctly. As you haven't stated a make and model it's impossible to give you more detailed instructions though.

Re-assembly after belt replacement


The small red clip has a tab on it to hold in place while putting back on. put the screw in the hole in clip and use tab to guide into place. if there is no tab, then you need to obtain a new set of clips, very inexpensive. the laege red clip is easy to put on since it goes into a groove and can't go on backward.
