SOURCE: Lower looper

If your lower looper is not catching the needle thread it needs to be timed by an experienced technician. Not for the faint of heart or one without a service manual.

SOURCE: Babylock seger machine keep breaking the left side needle.

Try rethreading the machine, and make sure the thread is not wrapped around anything. Then check the tension for the needles. Run a few inches of chainstich off slowly, while watching the thread and loopers make the loops over the finger. Your threads may be in the wrong position, or underneath the wrong parts to start.

SOURCE: on a babylock elegante the bobbin thread shows,

Have you reset the tensions for this machine, look in your manual and follow directions. If this is an Elegante there is also a set of instructions on the machine. On the LCD screen there is a picture of a sewing machine with a question mark, touch it, find Troubleshooting and touch that then find the problem you are having and read. If this does not help take it to a Brother dealer and have it reset so as to keep you machine in good running order.

You do need to take it back.

To save on driving, call and ask for an appointment so you do not have to leave the machine and make a second trip.

How do I get a continuous hem on slacks with my blindstitch hemmer? It skips stitches after going over serged seams.


See if your pressure foot is touching the machine tightly to move the hemmer more steadily. There is a release button on top of the machine push it down if it is up. Hope this helps.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q) Help!
I am breaking a lot of needles and the tension is getting too tight on its own while stitching and causing the thread to break. I am learning the machine for two weeks. Is it so sensitive too wools, cottons, and fleece that this would make such a major difference in the stitching - breaking needles, breaking thread?

(A) It may not be tension that is causing the problem with your portable blindstitch. If you have broken needles it has probably left some needle burrs in the thread and needle path that need polishing off with fine emory cloth (crocus) before sewing again.

Start with a new LWx6T needle without thread or fabric. Watch the needle as you turn the hand wheel. If there is needle deflection, reduce the penetration dial until there is no needle movement. If there is needle deflection caused by burrs, they must be polished off. Check the looper tip and two arms for any needle burrs and polish off. If there is needle deflection caused by the needle track lifting the needle, lower the track very slightly with the screws on the side of the black metal bracket above the needle.

Finally, Back off on the tension dial and retighten while you are sewing with a light strong thread and light to medium weight fabric, until you get the correct tension without loops. If tension is too tight it will push the thread up so it is not all the way down between the tension discs where it belongs.

(Q) I can't understand how to finish off at the end. It
always unravels. I have read the manual and it seems simple but I
apparently just "don't get it." Any help would be appreciated.

(A) At the end of the blindhem seam, position the needle all the way to the left, then use the knee lift to remove the fabric and jerk on the fabric at the same time. That will tie off the tread and break the thread at the
needle without bending the needle. You can weave the thread tail back into the stitches or cut it off. Before the above procedure, you could also turn the handwheel counterclockwise for a few stitches, then come back to the end of the seam and repeat the first procedure above.

I just purchased a babylock QTS428K what kind of needles do I need


Unable to find information on your particular Babylock machine. However, the manual should tell you what needles to use.

Similar models from the same era probably use the same needles.

Otherwise, a Babylock dealer would be able to help you.

DOES THE TACSEW T1718 MACHINE SEW IN A ZIG ZAG


Does it have a Stitch Width control? If not, it is probably a limited stitch only. Most Tacsew machines are made for high speed industrial sewing and frequently are made to perform a limited number of stitches. It appears this is a blindstitch for hemming.

How to adjust timing for Rex blindstitch hemmer


As long as your machine is not skipping stitches the timing should be fine. Three things to check: take your thread tension assembly apart so you can remove the discs and clean. Debris often gets between them and causes irregular tension. Next check the point of the looper to see if has a burr. If so take 600 sandpaper or crocus cloth and remove. Last-Check the upright pin that the looper passes--it too may have a burr.
