How do I thread the Singer merritt Lock serger?

Which model is your sewing machine? There may have been several with the Merritt Lock name. The 14U44 Merrit Lock uses the same manual as the 14U44B. The manual for 14U44B UltraLock model is available from Singer here: . See pages 10 - 17 (12- 19 of the PDF). There's also the 14U44B manual here:,244b.pdf . The threading diagram is on the same pages. I'm not exactly sure which manual will help you. Additional manuals are available here: . Enter the first part of the model number (up to any alphabetic characters). You can order copies for $15-20, depending on the machine.

I hope this helps.

The bobin in the sewing machine dont take the thread from the needle. I change the pieces but continue with the problem

Try a new needle in your machine, and rethread, then have a long enough tail on your thread on top and bottom thread, Also, make sure that you are threaded right, by that I mean that when you pull your top thread with the presser foot up, it feeds smoothly, then you know that the tension discs when you are on the way down are giving the right tension. Now put the presser foot down, and the thread should hardly move. Now thread your bobbin, make sure that it is feeding the correct way, pull on the thread and see that it is unwinding correctly.
If, you need a manual, go to and download it for free. Look at the threading diagram, make it larger if necessary. Good luck. I hope that this helps you. .

I'm a newbie trying to learn how to sew on a 401 singer. My first problem is thread tension. Can't seem to get it right and the second problem is the bobbin won't sit right. I'm sure the problems are...

Are following these instructions?

Note: always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up and make sure the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin as indicated in the manual.

Tension is usually around 4.

You need the right bobbin for this model: Class 66.

My sewing machine wont sew. the bobbing wont move. i dont know what to do

Make sure the bobbin is NOT overfilled. Make sure the thread leaves the bobbin in the appropriate groove and the CORRECT direction. Leave the right amount of thread out of the bobbin to start and follow the manual's suggestions

Hold the needla thread for a cycle and bring the bobbin thread up before sewing.

Does not stitch lower thread

Make sure when you thread the machine you have the thread seated into the tension assembly on top, then make sure you have the threading ports locked and the switch in the proper place for each looper threading, the machine will only partially thread if you do not have the port locked and it will even still sew although not properly.

Threading a sewing machine

What do you mean you are unable to pull the bobbin thread through, elaboration would help solve the problem...
I suspect I'm having the same problem with you if it's anything to do with the top thread looping around in the bobbin holder.

Damn machine!
