Baby Lock Serger Thread keeps breaking

I can not seem to get the thread to stop breaking or serging - th ethreads just feed straight through the machine. I have double checked the thread passes but still nothing. Baby Lock BL4-736. I have a Baby Lock serger model EA-605. When trying to sew a straight (double chain) stitch, the thread keeps coming out of the top needle. (the looper stays threaded. I have double checked the threading and tension. I can't seem to find the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have the same problem. My EA605 makes the serged edge but will not sew the seam. I have rethreaded and turned the needle around thinking that it might be in backwards. I have no idea what is causing this.

    Do you have an electronic copy of the manual that you could send me? My mother inherited this serger from my aunt and we don't have the manual.

I could not get my Babylock BL4-736 to make a chain. The most important suggestion I can give anyone with this problem is to make sure you have the DCx1F needles (not 1SP needles) installed correctly. The next suggestion is to make sure when you thread the loopers to have them in the highest position possible. No where in a manual will you find the next bit of important information: WHEN YOU THREAD YOUR UPPER LOOPER MAKE SURE YOUR THREAD FROM THE LAST STAY TO THE UPPER LOOPER IS BEHIND THE LOWER LOOPER. This worked for me and I know it will work for you.

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.

Fabric will not feed


if the serger is new, then take it back
if its not new,,
it sounds like there could be a problem with the feeddogs or with the timing, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked at a sewing machine repair shop..

Thread tension on a Baby Lock BL90


I suggest changing both needles
and rethreading the machine
use a can of air that is used for computer keyboards on the inside
here's a link for parts to the machine and also has a manual
the manual should have information about the thread tension

The lower looper keeps breaking thread


Hi,...if the lower looper thread is breaking before you sew six inches or more then I suspect a threading problem.When the lower looper thread breaks, You MUST unthread the needles before you thread the lower looper. Thread the looper and then rethread the needles.

Hope that helps,
Doug

Letture leaf edging


From "Serge With Confidence" by Nancy Zieman:

Set the machine up for a 3-thread rolled edge. Normal width; length 1 - 2.

Use Woolly Nylon in the loopers & regular thread in the needle.

Lock or disengage the cutting blade.

Guide fabric along the right edge of the presser foot.

Stretch and equal amount from fron to back while serging.

Lower the differential feed, if available to about 0.6.

Serge at a slow to moderate speed.

Practice with scraps first.

After serging, gently stretch & release the fabric edge after serging.
