I have a berndette over locker. Iam trying to thread the red loop that comes to the centre of machine before threading the needle. The lever seems to be stuck

Not sure I understand your question. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine and give each thread an extra tug when going through the tension mechanism. This allows the thread to seat in the tension disks.

Help plse, after threading it dont make the overlocking stitches. New machine, help with right way to thread machine and the smaller detail of threading.

Your machine is either not threaded correctly, or the individual threads have not been threaded in order. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine. You must follow the instructions exactly or the machine will most likely never work properly. Can you at least get a training class on your machine? A class is indispensable, especially when it comes to using a serger.

Even if it is not the same model, these instructions may be helpful.

How to thread an empisal over locker ,DE-LUXE400

The manual should be helpful:

It is always best to start out with brand new needles.

Before beginning to thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot throughout the threading process. This releases the tension disks so the thread will seat properly.

Follow the thread order when threading or your machine will most likely never work properly. Usually, it would be the upper looper first, the lower looper next, and then the needles. However, your manual should clarify that. Also, when threading each, be sure to give each thread an extra little tug when it goes through the tension disk to make sure it seats correctly.

Baby locker has no stitch at all ive thread it just as shown on diagram , im so frustrated with it

Remove all the thread.

RAISE the presser foot. Then rethread from the beginning making sure you are following "each" thread's steps and that you are threading each thread in the "order" specified in the manual. (If any steps are missed or the threads are not done in correct order, the machine most likely will never work! Sergers are finicky machines!)

For most sergers, the lower looper thread's "final" step is to lay "over" the top of the upper looper before begin pulled under the presser foot.

Also, if a thread breaks or comes unthreaded, the best policy is to unthread and start over. Simply rethreading the one thread will "Not" work!

If you still can't get it to work, you might take it to a Babylock dealer and have them look at your threading. Could be something is wrong with the machine other than the threading.

Threading the 634d took me over 8 hours to get the thread to go though the right needle. Is there an easier way?

Most new serger users have trouble threading the loopers. Something that helps me thread needles (sewing machine, serger, or hand needles) is to lick your index finger. Then swipe it across the back of the needle eye. The moisture helps draw the thread through the eye.

It helps to have the needle at the top of its cycle when threading, Removing the presser foot while threading the needle will sometimes help reduce the interference.. Be sure that your thread is not too big for the needle.

Can't figure out how to thread a Singer AK30037

There are generally markings on the machine; if you have followed those, you need to know that before stitching, you must draw the bobbin thread up to the top, and then hold both top and bottom threads loosely when you start up.

Help! I'm having problems with my Necchi Lydia 3. Firstly when threading up, the threaded needle refuses to draw up the bobbin thread. I've followed the instructions and the needle comes in and out but...

try a different bobbin
make sure the bobbin in turned the right way in the bobbin case
also the machine may have a timing problem, and having it checked to would be a good idea.

Drawing up the lower thread

Check the needle to be sure it is installed with the flat side to the back of the sewing machine.

Threading a pfaff creative 7570

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up. This keeps the tension disks open while you are threading. Open the lid on top. Put thread on spool holder. Go directly to your left and down the path on the farthest left. Go all the way to the bottom and bring the thread up on the path closer to the spool. Hook the thread through the metal piece that moves up and down while sewing. It should be in the highest position when threading. Run the thread down and clip into the small metal holder above the needle. Pull down needle threader, draw thread across front of it from left to right and pull through needle.
